    Good Lord.

    I know weíre in a tougher conference than most, but there are still some ugly numbers there.

    The only positive is that our PWR (and KRACH, where we rank higher) helps indicate what a strong conference weíre in. Second only to NCHC for collective non-conference record.

    That this conference has been so even is the only reason that only Ohio State (and the winner of the B1G tournament) will get into the NCAAs this year, and probably didnít help us in the numbers department.

    We probably arenít much better than this if we played in the ECAC, but Iím guessing (hoping) we wouldnít be in the 50s so much.

    Well, call me crazy, but I decided to do a double Friday, hitting the women's game at 4 and the men's at 8. Based on their record on Fridays, I should have picked Saturday, but I liked the seat choices better Friday. They will pull through for me.

    In person, we can't watch enough hockey, Tim! I'm even considering a couple high school games this Thursday.

    Take the whole day! The early games (10a and 12:30) feature future Badgers Casey Roepke and Ethan Mann from University School vs. Onalaska and Sam Stange and Zach Urdahl from EC North vs. Verona. Winners play each other Friday at 4. One might even spot Chuck Schwartz hanging around to watch EC North.

    Did I mention I met "Chuck" at a Capitols game? I recognized him from Twitter. Had a short talk.

    Last nights BB game was like pounding your head against a wall for 3 hours. And that is why I prefer to watch hockey, or any other sport to the time out riddled BB. I hate sports where you need to foul to win.....

    I just happened to watch the last 3 mins of the game plus the the 2 OT's. Just brutal to watch. BB is broken.

    Haha! I watched the FIRST 3 minutes of the game and had to switch to Center Ice. I haven't watched more than 5 minutes of a game since Bo left.

    Back to a real man's sport. Will K'Andre be back or do you think he's done this year? I don't know what to expect from these guys this weekend but of course, I'm always hoping for wins, especially against Meat Chicken. I can't remember the last time I missed a final home series and senior night (not to mention 2 WHB luncheons in a row), but this season (again) has my gut churning. I'll be at my brother's home in northeast Vilas County relaxing, but probably watching on the BTN.

    Last basketball game I went to was like watching paint dry. There were 15,000 golf clappers.

    Unlike hockey games where everyone is crazy. Not nowadays but 5 years ago. Thereís nothing like a packed kohl center full of hockey fans. Itís wild.

    Iíve said it before and Iíll say it again.... When hockey team gets good it wonít be long before the kohl is packed again. B-ball is boring. Football is meh, they have a horribly boring schedule every year and half the students donít show up anymore. The Wisconsin brand seems to have become a bit boring to me. No real excitemen. Vball is big as it should be bc itís exciting.

    I hope Granato figures this out bc Iím ready for a god **** crazy kohl center. Itís been too long, I almost forget what itís like to walk in there jacked up and ready to go.

    He was skating in sweats per Todd Milewski today. They expect him back, maybe, for playoff next week.

    It's a great day for hockey...how about 2 games! Today I'm attending my 4th game of the year, I usually only do 1, so blessed to be in the position to get to do 4 this year. And I'm yanking my daughter out of school early too for the women's game, that should get me the Dad of the year award, right? Let's go RED!

    Re: Wisconsin Hockey 2018-2019 Part 2: Still not time for the witty thread title.

    Some thoughts transplanted from the recruiting thread, concerning Tim A asking about the math of the impact of our poor PK.

    Currently: weíre 96/133 on the PK. Thatís 73.7% and truly awful.

    In other seasons since the BTHC (2013 on), we are 503/793 or 81.4%. Fairly average numbers.

    On 133 PKs, that change leads to 12 fewer goals scored against us. How that impacts our win percentage is a matter of random circumstances.

    But goalie stats?

    Lebedeffís numbers this year:
    68 GA, 3.30 GAA, 89.0 SV%

    Berry:
    37 GA, 3.21 GAA, 89.5 SV%

    Split those 12 goals up based on playing time (8 for Lebedeff, 4 for Berry)?
    Lebedeff: 60 GA, 2.92 GAA, 90.3 SV%
    Berry: 33 GA, 2.87 GAS, 90.6%

    Not a huge change, really, no one becomes a rock star overnight. But those numbers DO look a lot more normal.

    And one can only imagine how having a defense alone might have a greater impact elsewhere. The basic defensive lapses that we see in the PK are kind of indicative of the defensive struggles we see in general, so maybe correcting 12 goals out of the PK also makes our overall defense better and saves us a few more goals per game.

    Re: Wisconsin Hockey 2018-2019 Part 2: Still not time for the witty thread title.

    No sooner did I send that than did I look at the numbers again and realize that the teamís overall SV% hasnít changed much since Eavesí last good season (our first BTHC season), while PK% has varied a bit (with this year and 14-15 being two major outliers).

    Not sure how much of an impact that has in general (mostly conjecture Iím sure), but maybe fixing the PK wouldnít have a greater impact on team defense.

    Also just watched the last half of the Lady Badgers. Expected, but what a massacre. Basically a 60 minute Power Play.

    Bad pass by Ess (behind Tischke), but Tischke dogged it getting back, blew a tire, tic, tac, goal. C'mon defense, sharpen the **** up.
