Junior Ryan Little apparently took a shot to the hand during the NoDak series and that exacerbated some old injuries he had. Giving possibly the most vague injury interview ever, Little told WSJ's Andy Baggot that "there's some broken stuff in there." Apparently a variety of doctors have checked out Little and have found that he really can't do additional damage to the hand if he continues to play...

Women's sophomore goalie Alex Rigsby was named WCHA Defensive Player of the Week for the second consecutive week. Freshman men's goalie Joel Rumpel was named WCHA Rookie of the Week. Rigsby had 80 saves last weekend in UW's sweep of Duluth including career-high 46 saves Saturday night. She held UMD to just 2-of-9 on power plays. Rumpel is one of two freshman goalies the Badger men's team is using ...

Freshman defensemen Jake McCabe suffered a freak injury to his hand on Friday and will be sidelined 6-8 weeks. Reaching for a water bottle on the bench, he somehow got clipped by a teammates skate. What he thought was a minor cut turned out to be a severed tendon. He immediately underwent surgery. McCabe has been on the #1 defensive line with Hobey candidate Justin Schultz and has also been a part...

This pic comes from Uni Watch, which points out that the coaches' gear during last night's game appears to have come from Adidas with an error.   Those aren't W's at the start of "Wisconsin." Those are upside-down M's. That's kind of a huge mistake by Adidas. It also doesn't seem to be isolated to the stash received by the Wisconsin coaching staff. The jacket is for sale on the Wisconsin Booksto...

Last week the Badger men's hockey team went into Houghton, MI and were swept by WCHA perpetual bottom-feeder Michigan Tech. They lost two OT games (their second and third of the season) and fans and others around the WCHA were wondering if Wisconsin was really that bad. The Badgers are young - incredibly inexperienced and young. Coach Mike Eaves is dressing about 15 underclassmen a night with just...

There are many criticisms that are being rained down on Bret Bielema and the Badgers after last night's loss to Michigan State. The time management issue is a big one and a lot of people will talk about it, so I'm not going to spend a lot of time on it. I'll address the time management at the end of the blog post. Bret Bielema's post-game excuse for calling the timeouts during Michigan State's fin...

Andy Baggot, the UW hockey beat writer for the Wisconsin State Journal, reported today that the Badgers women's hockey team is putting together a formal bid to host the 2014 Women's Frozen Four. The biggest drawback from the Badgers' bid is that the 2012 FF will be in Duluth, MN and the 2013 FF was awarded to Minnesota. It does seem unlikely that the committee would place a third straight tourname...

The Badger men's hockey team lost a second OT game in the young season on a goal that players, coach Mike Eaves and even Madison.com hockey beat writer Andy Baggot think shouldn't have been allowed. The goal play starts at about 1:32 of the below video, so you can judge for yourself. The argument is that the Michigan Tech player checks Badger John Ramage into goalie Landon Peterson, taking him co...

The greatest sports weekend ever in Wisconsin? It's hard to imagine anything better than what took place as October opened. The Brewers began their quest for the World Series by beating Arizona twice at Miller Park. The Badgers welcomed Nebraska...
