Not that I would disagree with any of their choices since it is just the preseason, but remember to check the source. ;)

Right. INCH is too blind to see the "Defense for the Ages".

No I said if you have a DEFENSE FOR THE AGES!!111!! like you attest you can win the league with shaky goaltending.

I don't think Wisconsin will have a good year if their goaltending is shaky. As competitive as the WCHA will be, I don't think anyone will have a top 3 finish with shaky goaltending. And while I think UW has a good blueline, they need a few more Roes, Rahkshanis and Schroeders to finish that high with poor goaltending.

While we sure know what the "A" stands for in Timothy A, this has been quite entertaining. Thanks Harley and Euro! :D

Doesn't this belong in the "Drunk Cheesehead Of The Day" thread? :confused:

Ah-hem, you're the guy with the word "gibberish" underneath your name.....not me. And I don't drink. I'm this talented naturally. :D

On a personal note:

How is your son who would be about an 8th grader doing in hockey these days? I remember years ago you boasted your son the forward would embarrass my son the goalie, and they were squirts at the time. Has Eaves contacted him yet about signing up with the BADgers?

Now back to your regularly scheduled badger bashing......

Personally, I'd rather red than urine. Yes, they are both liquids in the body, but blood spreads nutrients and oxigen throughout the body, while urine is the product of one of the body's trash collectors. You have to admit, those uni's the rodent wore against Air Force early this year were pretty hideous.

And on another football note....I hope UW keeps the axe tomorrow and firmly plants it in Goldy' forehead. :p

Let's go RED!

Wisconsin is better defensively then Minnesota...Minnesota is better offensively then Wisconsin. And I'm neutral...I hate both. :D

When Eaves called my son hung up on him. ;)
He's now a Jr (he's young for his school class & was old for his his hockey age designation) in HS and no longer playing hockey - he was a solid B player but his HS team is a really good so he decided to Nordic Ski during the winter. Your boys still playing?

What do they know? 4 of 6 Rookies from WCHA and not one from the annual number 1 freshman class in the country.

I didn't know Michigan was in the WCHA.:confused:


INCH 2009-10 Preseason All-America Teams (http://www.insidecollegehockey.com/7Archives/Features/0910/preaa_0801.htm)

Jordan Schroeder - 1st Team
Cade Fairchild - 2nd Team
Nick Leddy - Rookie Team

Oddly enough, not one Wisconsin "Defense for the Ages" player is mentioned. It's all flawed.:confused:

:eek:



I'm always amazed every year with the national media bias in favor of the rodents. They are picked 4th in the WCHA but 6th in the country ahead of the 2nd and 3rd place teams in their own league. I guess tDon mails out a lot of those urine and marooon colored glasses to all the beat writers in the enitre country every year.

Would like a glass of your favoirte fruity fu fu whine with that cheese?

What part of "not that I would disagree with any of their choices" didn't you read? He's saying INCH is a bad source. Even ESPN gets it right every once in a while...:p

So INCH is a "good source" in this particular case because a Sioux fan agrees with it. But if a Sioux fan disagrees with INCH it's a "bad source". Got it. "Begging the question" is a classy Sioux fan kinda thing.;)

Media Day (http://www.gophersports.com/ViewArticle.dbml?SPSID=38855&SPID=3322&DB_OEM_ID=8400&ATCLID=204805651) - Summary of some of Don Lucia's comments on the Gophers this season:

1) Scoring by committee: "I think at times last year our team was too top heavy with one line for scoring. 2009's team is a team by committee where we'd like to have 5 players score 5 more goals instead of one player scoring 25 goals. Offensively Jordan (Schroeder) and Jay (Barriball) are going to lead the way for us, but we need other guys to step up. We don't need guys to go from seven or eight goals to 20, but have those guys go from seven or eight goals to a dozen."

2) More aggressive defense: "We need our five returning defensemen to take that next step. At times we were a little vulnerable in front of our own net and got overpowered, but we have had a good year in the weight room and some of that has been remedied. I also think that our compete level on a nightly basis has to be better, and that is something we as coaches are going to work on right from day one. At times, we are going to have to be a more difficult team to play against. The game of hockey is speed and skill, but a lot of times those puck battles are going to be what wins you the game."

3) Senior leadership: "We like some of the kids we got in as freshmen, as always, but we have six seniors and I feel very strongly that as our seniors play this year our team's going to go. I feel that if our seniors have a great year, our team will have a great year."

4) Consistent goaltending: "As we go in we need to have that consistent goaltending from start to finish, and I think that is going to be imperative."

5) Priority on line chemistry: "Some people asked who Jordan (Schroeder) is going to play with without Stoa there and we don't know right now, but we are going to rotate some guys and see who looks like they have the best chemistry. We don't have to have our first line in the first week of the season we have to find out who has the best chemistry and talk to the guys and see who they feel they have good chemistry with. It doesn't have to be which three players are the best, it's which three players are going to play well together."

I'm pretty sure that one went right over your head. :p

I was glancing through this thread and haven't been following the Golden Gopher freshmen. Now you guys have got me even more excited for Sunday's game. I'll be in section 7 row 10 as usual!:D

Maybe it wasn't that clearly spelled out. I was saying INCH couldn't know anything when they choose 4 of 6 freshman of the year from the WCHA, and further proof they don't know anything is that none of the 6 are from MICH. I figured they should just automatically list all the Michigan freshman. Then, if there are less than 6 freshman at Mich that year, choose from the rest of the country.

I don't think so. Correct me if I'm wrong, but my understanding is you believe INCH is an unreliable source of information ("check the source"). If so, "Begging the question" (Petitio Principii) means I am supposed to accept that premise without sufficient proof of it's validity. Personally I would hesitate to make a statement like that unless I had strong psychometric data to substantiate it. Do you have that?

That would be great, show me the stuff and I'll accept the premise. Otherwise it's best to not make comments you can't prove.:)

Do you have any facts to back that up? Where's your proof of it's validity?
