Plus we no longer get to yell "Book 'em Dano!"

Comment 30 Jun 2015

Dano was definitely the big piece in the deal from my perspective.  The Hawks talk about Anisimov being an ideal 2nd center but I just don't see it, especially for a team with the Hawks' aspirations.  He'd be a great 3rd liner, but IDK if he has what it takes to lead the 2nd line on a team like the Hawks.

Comment 30 Jun 2015

I like Arty, but he's not as good as we always wanted him to be.  I'll miss Dano, but Saad is more than worth it, he's a 2 time cup champ at 22 and his ceiling is still likely higher than Dano's.  And there's no way the team would risk being unable to sign Jenner, he's a foundation piece.

As for defense, I expect we've got a medium-sized move coming, whether it be a FA or another trade.  We still have loads of young talent which could help us facilitate a deal but still not compromise the future.  If it's a FA it'll be an older guy because we've still got a lot of young and talented defenders that we don't want to block long-term.

Jarmo is a beast in every sense of the word.  Since he and Davidson came to the team we've been on the upswing and this deal may have moved the timeline for serious contention up.  The scary thing about the team now is that not only will we seriously compete next year, we're stupid loaded with young talent as well, so the future is bright, to say the least.

Comment 30 Jun 2015

There are some strange DV's in this thread, I don't see anything objectionable.  But anyways I love hearing good news in the hurry up, and I hope you're right about Farrell.  He and Hausmann make up a dynamite class at TE.  I wonder if we'll get to see Baugh more this year, he's kind of an unknown and he'll likely be here for 2 years with the aforementioned duo.  Hopefully he's gotten his act together and the three of them can live up to the standard Heuerman and Vannett have set.

Wow, I can't say I have my finger on the pulse of Wisconsin basketball, but this is really quite surprising.  He seems like he could keep going for quite a while.  I don't think this bodes well for UW basketball, sadly.  He was the special thing about that program and it could struggle to maintain that consistency without him.  And that won't be good for the B1G, though the addition of Maryland could hopefully offset any potential downturn for Wisconsin.

Also, don't let the door hit ya, Bo.

Comment 24 Jun 2015

I don't know, given the choice between Justin Anderson and Tyus Jones, I might rather have Anderson.  He's more versatile and would be an excellent, cheaper replacement for JR Smith, who just opted out.

Comment 19 Jun 2015

Hehehehehe.

On a more serious note, it really seemed strange when he committed there.  Belien's always done it with the lower-ranked kids for the most part.  I'm glad to see it didn't stick.  This isn't football, the B1G is strong so I don't give a damn about the conference getting better.  So HA!

Comment 19 Jun 2015

I'm excited to be refreshed by watching a bit of the unknown.  Too often the past couple years I've gone into games expecting a seemingly half-hearted slog through 40 minutes.  It really seemed the teams lacked players with that killer instinct outside of Craft, Thomas, and Russell.  I'm really looking forward to a team of young guys who work their butts off trying to earn playing time since they're fighting each other rather than incumbents.  At this point, I'm more excited about watching this team as a whole (because, well, D'Angelo) than last year's.

Comment 11 Jun 2015

Trapp has the potential to be a great holding mid, almost like Michael Bradley.  But Bradley has really stepped up his play in the final third, and I don't see Trapp being an advanced playmaker, maybe more of a Claudio Reyna-type.

Comment 03 Jun 2015

I like it, definitely better than the last two years.  Not that I was as bothered as some by our schedules the past couple years, but I'm anxious to see what this young team does against a very challenging schedule.

Comment 02 Jun 2015

Man, I just miss Stravinsky so much.

I present to you, drunk man at an ATM:

Comment 01 Jun 2015

I was thoroughly disappointed that I couldn't watch, he definitely seems like he's got top-15 potential.  I like Isner and Young and some of the other guys, but it's been a while since the US has had a true star.  I feel bad for Andy Roddick, that dude just hit his peak at the wrong time, playing against arguably the best ever and a top 5er/best claycourt player ever. 

Comment 30 May 2015

Why do professional media members feel the need to keep asking "Is Braxton coming back?"

Answered your own question right there.  There are no sports journalists anymore.  All they care about is page views and drama, and they'll create it if they have to.  Just look at First Take.  Braxton has twice said he's coming back but people like you care more about drama than about reality and latch onto this BS when nothing has ever indicated that Braxton was leaving.  The media doesn't care about you, what's right, or what's true, just what sells.  And you're buying.
