Tomorrow night the Sioux open up their season at home. Against a beaten down Badger team that has started off the season 0-5-1, the worst start in the modern era for them. For a team that a lot of people claimed were ready to contend for another NCAA Title, this is not the start Wisconsin was looking for.
I recently saw the Badgers in action against Denver. Here are some of my observations:
- Wisconsin's D, which was supposed to be one of the top in the country, is poor at best
- Connelly is a decent goaltender, but gets flustered easily
- Wisconsin has a decent PP
- They are also undisciplined
With Ben Street out for 3-6 months, the Badgers are down one of their key players. This won't make things any easier for them.
