There isn't a single UAA Seawolves player on the current roster that has experienced beating the Wisconsin Badgers in a hockey game. The last win against the Badgers came on November 4th, 2006 more than four years ago.
Justin Bourne scored his 3rd goal of 2006-2007 season just 33 seconds into the 3rd period for the game winner. Here was my recap. So why am I bringing up a potentially disheartening point like this? For Sean Wiles sake.
Sean is our lone player from Wisconsin. He isn't the first and he won't likely be the last. But from what I can tell every other player from Wisconsin that played for the Seawolves had at least one victory against Bucky.
It may sound like I'm hoping for just one win this weekend. Nothing could be farther from the truth. I'm hoping for a sweep. I think a sweep is a legitimate hope. The team is clearly playing well over the last few weeks. They seem to have a good understanding of both the level of play and effort necessary for that to happen.
So all I'm here to say with this post is ... let's fucking get a fucking win for Sean Wiles this Friday night for fuck's sake. And then let's get afuckingnother on Saturday. For Sean.
Past experience tells me that Sean "gets up" big time for these games. These two games will be his last regular season chances to play against his home state's biggest school. A school that essentially ignored him during recruiting.
Sean will play hard this weekend. Hopefully, that translates into production that helps the Seawolves deliver the victories. Regardless though, I hope every other player on the team steps it up for Sean.
