Voting should end now and Mike Eaves should win coach of the year this season. After an abysmal 0-6-1 start to the season, the Badgers were looking rough, run-over and ragged. They started with 5 of 7 on the road, with the only home games being against Minnesota - never an easy task. They faced the #1 and #4 teams in the country the first weekend and it didn't let down from there. Now, the team...

The men's team tied and won Friday and Saturday at Minnesota-Duluth, leaving town with three points and some nice momentum.Blake Geoffrion was named WCHA Offensive Player of the Week. On Friday, he scored back-to-back goals to come back from 2-1 down on MN-D - it was the third time in four games he put the puck in the net twice. Saturday night, he had the assist on Podge's goal.Podge Turnbull retu...

It was a tale of two team this weekend at St. Cloud. Friday night, the team that started the season a dismal 0-6-1 showed up and got absolutely demolished by SCS 6-2. The game wasn't televised, but by all accounts, the problems taking care of the puck and puck control and poor goaltending meant the Badgers looked silly.Fortunately, those problems were shoved back into the closet on Saturday and th...

Went to another Badger game Saturday night and this game was more than worth our while.The Badgers beat the Michigan Tech Huskies 6-0 and finally looked like they had some life.We had pretty good seats, so I took a bunch of pictures. Considering how fast hockey is, how new I am and that we were in the stands, I was pretty impressed with the number of goal shots I got.Check out the slideshow hereOn...

The men's hockey team finally came away with a win Saturday night in North Dakota beating the Sioux 5-2. Of course, the game wasn't televised, so I can't tell you too much about the win other than that all the scoring came in the third period which is HUGE for the team, as the third period has been absolutely sad in the prior 7 games.And while the win, in such a convincing fashion, no less, is exc...

I've been pretty worked up about how much the refereeing and rule changes have affected college hockey thus far this season. Thankfully, I'm not the only one. Even coach Mike Eaves is upset by the situation - so much so that he sent clips and his comments to the league.       College hockey: Have refs gone overboard in rules emphasis?                 By Todd D. Milewski  �...

Ok, let's get this out of the way first. It's the video of Saturday night's fight between UW's Ben Grotting and UM's Patrick White. And it's nuts. We were at the game and everyone was kind of just stunned. You don't fight like this in college. Hell, they don't really allow fighting at all in college. And frankly, I haven't seen a beatdown like this in the pros in awhile, either. There's a lot ...
