Badgers Hockey Coaches Remain Loyal to Wisconsin | Ticket King Inc.

Badgers Hockey Tickets
Wisconsin Badgers hockey tickets are in high demand, as the team hopes to improve on their previous record of 14-19-4. Tony Granato has the Badgers ready to play again this season.  There are great home games coming up at the Kohl Center, an on the road!  

The Wisconsin Badgers are more well known for their football program, but this post we're all about Badgers Hockey! The Badgers have taken to the ice since 1921, when Wisconsin took on Michigan four times that first year. The program didn't come into focus until the 1960's, when Ivan Williamson managed the program. As an independent NCAA team, the Badgers had a very short eight game season in the early years. they had their first victory in 1965, taking down the Golden Gophers in overtime. 

In 1973, Wisconsin won their first national championship, at the "Frozen Four." They defeated Denver by a score of 4-2 that weekend.  Four seasons later, the team would come out on top again, defeating Michigan. For three straight seasons in 1981 through 1983, Wisconsin would make to the finals, winning it all in 1981. The team has won the Championship game six times since 1973. 

History of Badgers Hockey Coaches

Coaching the Badgers through the years has been no easy task. People in the Upper Midwest live and breathe hockey. John Riley took the position from 1963 through 1966, with a final record of 34-23-3. Bob Johnson worked from there, coaching the next nine seasons, winning the NCAA tournament in 1973. There was a "one and done" coach for the 1975-76 season, and he was followed up by two more tournament wins by Bob Johnson, who would wind up coaching the team for a total of fourteen seasons. Jeff Sauer would take over for the next twenty seasons. He coached the team to a pair of NCAA championships, and another four playoff spots throughout the years. He left the team with an overall record of 489 wins, 306 losses, and 46 ties. For the next fourteen seasons, Mike Eaves would take over. He was team captain in 2005-2006, when the Badgers again won the NCAA tournament. For the past two seasons, Tony Granato is head coach.

NCAA Conference Championship Games 2018 | Ticket King Inc.

NCAA Football Championships
We have reached one of the most the most sacred weekends in the yearly sports calendar, college football’s Conference Championship weekend. Let’s go through the games one by one, and we'll predict the scores.

PAC-12 Championship Game, Utah vs. Washington- This one takes place on Friday night in San Francisco. This will be a lower-scoring game than some of the others this weekend as both teams have great defenses. On offense, Utah is all about the running game, led by 1,000-yard rusher Zack Moss leading the way. On offense, Washington features one of the best quarterbacks in the country in Jake Browning. The Utah defense will give Browning a good chance to show off his skills for NFL scouts. Final score: 27-20 Washington.

Big 12 Championship Game, Texas vs. Oklahoma- This one takes place at “Jerry World,” AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. This will of course be the second match up of the season between these two teams, with Texas winning a barn burner 48-45 in week seven. Expect more of the same, an ultra-high scoring contest. Final Score: 59-52 Texas.

AAC Championship Game, Memphis vs. Central Florida- Of all of the notable conference championship games, this one will be the least interesting. Central Florida is undefeated with the nation’s longest winning streak. Depending on what happens everywhere else, UCF could sneak into the college football playoffs. Final score: 38-16 Central Florida.

SEC Championship Game, Alabama vs. Georgia- The one everybody’s waiting for. A year ago Georgia took down the mighty Crimson Tide and gave the selection committee a headache trying to explain Alabama’s presence in the playoffs. Can Georgia do it two years in a row? The laundry list of players who could affect the outcome of this game is too many to count, so let’s just skip right to the final score. Final Score: 31-24 Alabama.

ACC Championship Game, Clemson vs. Pittsburgh- The high-powered Clemson Tigers vs. the reliable tugboat known as the Pittsburgh Panthers. Pittsburgh may be having a good season, but I don’t think they have enough to stay with Clemson. Final Score: 45-28 Clemson.

Northwestern vs. Ohio State- For just the third time ever, the Wisconsin Badgers are not playing in this game. In their place is the Northwestern Wildcats, who are playing for a trip to the Rose Bowl. Pat Fitzgerald has built this program up from nothing with two-star recruits by focusing on attention to detail. I have brought him up before as a potential replacement for Mike McCarthy in Green Bay. But for now, he his program in the biggest game in its history. On the other side are the immortal Ohio State Buckeyes. Can Northwestern pull off one of the most improbable championship game upsets in recent memory? I don’t think they will, but if they do, and Texas beats Oklahoma earlier in the day, the playoff committee has a massive problem on their hands. Final Score: 38-27 Ohio State.

Bucks Tickets for Fiserv Forum | Ticket King Inc.

The Milwaukee Bucks opened the 2018 season very hot. The team started off with seven straight wins. The fans couldn't be happier. All of this comes on heels of the grand opening of the Fiserv Forum. All of this action makes Bucks tickets a popular item around Milwaukee. Even the night that Bucks' star player Giannis Antetokounmpo sat out, the team took care of business. If they stay hot throughout the long 82 game season, we'll surely see them head to the NBA playoffs.

Giannis might be grabbing all the headlines for the Bucks, but Khris Middleton Eric Bledsoe, and Malcolm Brogdon are all playing solid ball right now. Eric Bledsoe is averaging 31 minutes per game right now, and shoots a solid 79.5% from the free throw line. The man ranked third in steals last year, and cannot be taken for granted when he's in the lineup. Malcolm Brogdon is picking up just shy of 30 minutes per game, averaging 13 points, and just over three rebounds. He's new to the NBA, and on the right path.

Also taking the spotlight is Khris Middleton, a five year pro that's averaging 15 points per game right now, but will certainly ramp that up as the season progresses. He's the third best three point shooter in Bucks history, with over 563 to his name. Middleton brings down over five rebounds per game. At the time this post goes live, the Bucks are second in the Eastern Conference, just one game back of the Toronto Raptors. Both teams have yet to lose at home. Check out all the NBA action at the new Milwaukee Fiserv Forum.
