    Because it was the middle of the season. Nobody good is going to put their name in for the job in the middle of the college basketball season. And once Gard got them to the tournament and he basically made up his mind that Gard was going to be hired, he posted it and did a few token interviews before giving the job to Gard.

    There's a wild rumor on a Badger board his assisstants will be Osieki and Don Granato. Likely too good to be true.

    Tony will do nicely.

    I thought this had to be hearsay and wishful thinking; an article on USCHO is giving creedence to the rumor. It's not like USCHO is some gossip rag like hockeybuzz.

    If this comes to fruition this will be a STACKED coaching staff. If they want to bring Bill Howard back as volunteer goalie coach I'm on board.

    For ye who doesn't pay attention, we recently added defenseman JD Greenway. Solid pickup.

    really solid pickup - he has impressed me a lot playing for the U.S. Surprised he didn't go play with his brother at Boston University.

    That could be due Don Granato's influence or possibly Osieki. It's amazing what a competent coaching staff will do for recruiting.

    We lost Jordan Schmaltz when Oz left Eaves' staff and the rest of the once stellar defensive pipeline dried up. Let the good times roll again:yo:

    After some lean years it appears Wisconsin recruiting is starting to crush it, especially since the start of this year. Already had Inamoto in the fold but have since added Gildon, K'Andre Miller, Emberson, the Krygier twins and today it looks like they add 2000-born Shattuck star Samuel Stevens and 2000-born Finn Sampo Ranta who is suiting up for Sioux City this year.

    Seems like the Badgers are poised to become a powerhouse again.

    Wow, Sean Dhooghe (along with his brother) switched from Ohio State to the Badgers it appears? They continue to be on a roll.

    Allright! The new era kicks offs against the Yoopers tonight. I'm eager to see what the new regime can do with this team. I wouldn't be surprised to see them compete for a conference title, as Michigan is weakened this year. I would also expect them to surpass the win total of the past 2 years this season:shakehead.

    There will be better times ahead now that the platinum prospect pipeline is flowing to Madtown again:yo:

    It's been 3 years since we've seen a win on opening weekend...progress!

    Offense shouldn't be a problem but the D, a hallmark of Badger hockey, is suspect.

    The win total from last year has been matched by the holiday break! Why, this superstar coaching staff may surpass the win total of the past two seasons this year:yo:. The lads can score, but that defense...oy. I will say, J.D. Greenway is a nice centerpiece to build around. The dude makes it look easy tossing 200 pound guys around.

    The best part is the conference, aside from Sparty, is becoming relevant. Hats off to Penn State sitting at #1 in the Pairwise:handclap:

    Keep your eyes on the good guys. You might get nauseated if you look too long at Minny's baby caca colored uniforms.

    This weekend's sweep should put the team in a playoff spot in the pairwise. What a difference a year (and new staff) makes. They haven't been swept and really only took one beatdown from NMU.

    Jurisik looks good since coming back from his injury.

    Can't believe how bad the Eaves regime fell apart
