Here Lies: Wisconsin's 2014-15 Season
Some things are better six feet under. This year's Badger season is definitely one of them. The final nail in the coffin came at the defeating hands of Michigan -- who hammered home a win, 5-1, Thursday at the Joe.
There's no tip-toeing around it, Wisconsin's season was brutal on all fronts. Despite efforts from the likes of Grant Besse and goaltender Joel Rumpel, it didn't seem to be enough, With Thursday's loss the Badgers dropped a school record 26 games. The historic program has opened record books in areas they never wanted to.
Shining high points of this season included a sweep over rival Minnesota and...well one high is better than none.
Will this death mean the end of the coaching staff? Who knows. We can only hope that they rise from the dead stronger than last year -- it can't get any worse can it?
