Saw this linked up on the Badger hockey Twitter last night and now I�ve seen if a few other places, but I think it�s pretty interesting that the Badgers have remained competitive year-in and year-out despite losing so much scoring every season....

After last night's bombarding 7-1 victory, tonight's 4-2 win seemed like a grinder. Yet, aside from a late-game barrage, it felt like the Badgers had control of the entire match. Midway through the final period, the announcers on my broadcast commented that Minnesota State had not changed their game plan. I think they were saying that the Mavericks hadn't panicked, but it also made me wonder why, ...

After an absolutely awful few weeks of the season, the Badger men ended on a spectacular high note, beating McNaughton cup winners North Dakota Saturday.

Congrats to the ladies for winning their fourth title in five years. More than once this season I have said how much it sucks for the Badgers that in a season where they were undefeated more than halfway through the season and have just a few losses (I'm at work and can't access the internet to find the exact number - thank goodness Blogger's a Google company so I'm allowed access) that not only i...

Tonight @ Bradley Center, 7:30 p.m.

The Milwaukee Admirals offer fans perhaps the biggest carrot of the season tonight with a post-game concert from The BoDeans, the beloved Milwaukee band and perennial Summerfest headliners. That group is riding high from last year’s Still, an album that reunited them with producer T-Bone Burnett and delivers plenty of their signature, upbeat roots-rock. It’s arguably the group’s best album in 15 years. The game itself...
