they have nothing to be ashamed of.  I enjoyed watching a couple of seniors take over the leadership of the team down the stretch and setting the right tone with their play. (irvin and walton).

With all of the early entries into the draft, we arent getting the chance to see as many of those types of Sr. led tournament runs.

I don't know if they outplayed MD but they definitely gave them all they wanted.   I hated to see them lose in OT.  As an objective hockey fan, last night was about as perfect a summation of the season as I can think of.  They can play with anybody but they need just a little bit more.

 It is important to understand that they sold out the defense a lot to get back in the game.  That style of play can be employed as an adjustment to gain the other teams zone but it isn't a sound full time strategy.   MD was excellent during the first 2 periods at closing OSU off crossing into the offensive zone.  To me, that is where we need to improve.... a bit bigger, meatier and nastier on the blue line, a bit more balance if you will.   The future IS bright.  Hats off to the boys, coach  Rholik and staff on a significant stamp forward with his season.

There is a reason the B1G gave Healy an extra game..... pattern of behavior. It isn't like it was a non conference event.  I hope the dude gets his head on straight because he can be very good.

Chicken Paprikash

I have to request it and get it only when I travel to my folks place.

I have tried to get it at a few "reputable" establishments where it has been touted as a "specialty", however, in all cases it has been a tremendous disappointment.

I can almost pull it off myself, but I need one more lesson from mom and to practice until I perfect it.

The problem is that it is a very rich dish, not something you eat all of the time, and the kids wont eat it so I am limited in my opportunities to make it.

great....now I want paprikash

Easy to say without knowing anything about the situation.

He was the biggest asshole of a wannabe cop ever.  

Treated me and my girlfriend like we were armed violent criminals.  She peed her pants because they wouldnt let her go to the bathroom.  Over a half a gram of pot.  Full cooperation, no attitude, no anything.

The respect angle goes both ways.

Yes.

2 days...in the godforsaken state of PA over about 1/2 a gram of pot in Cook State Forest and a 70 year old park ranger aptly named Dick.

I hope that fucker died gasping for air.

Yes!  We made it in!  

That being said,  This isn't a single incident for Healy with this crap.   I played with a few guys like him, big talented but lacked the self control to be excellent.  He is getting exactly what he deserves, it just pisses me off that the rest of the team will suffer because of his lack of leadership and self control.   Horrible example of Sr. Leadership.  

One game at a time for this team. Let's go Bucks!

Just think about how many times you saw Craft make a play that was nothing more than effort and guts.   Probably once a game.  Totally selling out for the team.  there are probably 30-40 over his 4 years.

Now think about how many plays like that have happened in the last 2 seasons?  I will hang up and listen to see if anyone has any examples.... I know there has to be a few but they are few and far between.

Aubrey as much as I hate to say it the later season injuries and failure to win a lot of very winnable series during the last 12 weeks have put this team in a bad position.  A trip to the B1G final is no guarantee.   Their only sure way make the 12 is to win the tourney.

Comment 11 Mar 2017

I think Thompson has a future.  I think he made some nice strides this year.  He has the potential to be all B1G next season if he continues to progress.
