I'm planning on a return trip this season.

B1G refs... corrupt, or just incompetent?

Ours too.  Section 122 Fri and 123 Sat.  $29 per ticket.  I remember buying tickets at the will call window when the Kohl Center opened and they were $24 each.  It's nice they keep prices low.

 

When I first started ordering tickets I remember calling the BADger ticket office using the pay phone at Wiley Hall between classes.  Holding for an hour, then having to pick up tickets at Will call.  It's so nice to be able to pick your seats from a map on a website in less than 5 minutes.

This is the first time I can remember prices getting raised for UW  a whole $5    Still cheaper than most.   Wish other programs would do this

Red Shed bar will relocate in Downtown Madison

 

I wonder if the Fruit Flies will stay in the old build or come to the new one

@bertogliat 

how can the U of M charge 70.00 a ticket for hockey games and Wisconsin only charge 29.00? 
the U of M is corrupt 

Aloha!

Friends in Madison want to watch some Gopher hockey, and I'm happy to be a part of it.  The Kohl Center is my favorite place to watch an NCAA hockey game outside of Mariucci Arena.  Going to make the trips to UND, PSU, and Wisc this year.  (3/4 of my least favorite teams [missing Michigan])

Maybe because their football and basketball fans donate a lot more to the athletic department than Gopher fans do.

So the old Red Shed Location is now called Jay's   Nothing is the same. Hell they even updated the bathroom doors.      Not sure if the Shed has reopened at the new location or not yet.

I'm planning on going I might be by myself. Haven't bought tix yet but looking at the lower bowl sections. Could I sit next to somebody if possible?

It's likely going to be difficult to find seats next to anyone in particular at this stage.  Overall, don't worry about it.  Get a ticket someplace for the game, maybe move to an open seat near someone at the 1st intermission, and look for us at the bars before/after the game for the hangouts.

Feel free to ping me on Discord if you're having a problem tracking us down.  Shouldn't be THAT hard to find us, there will be around a dozen or so of us all in one area, and we're not exactly a quiet bunch.

I can’t stand the fact the Shed is gone.  New tradition needed.  Might have to go back to Brats

@steve-mn for me yes.  City is my first stop.  Still debating where to go for stop 2.  It was always Shed but no longer there and from what I have heard the new bar Jay's that is there now is playing Soft Rock on the speaker with hospital lighting

I think there is a group going to the City before the game Friday.  Maybe we will see some of you there

You can switch to Fishbowls at Wandos and have gut rot from the sugar.

I see that Jay's took a page out of the Shed's book and still does LI's in a Mason Jar and colors them Red

Road trip update.  Gambling bad.  Liquor good.  Smoking a cigar on the porch with a cocktail at 9 pm.  Not the plan.  Tomorrow must be better.

Just about every hotel shower here has a removable shower head (can't think of the proper name for it) just like every toilet has a bidet/spray handle. I'll never go back to not having both.

Not the two solid days of eating and drinking…and stressing about stupid referees? 😉

My innards are currently not insanely pleased with my culinary and beverage choices in the past 48+ hours.  😂

I told the wife last night we should do wisconSIN next year, if Notre Dame doesn't work out. And Vegas doesn't break me. Though after Duluth this year, I can guarantee my wings will be clipped a bit for future road trips.

I would have been at City Bar to meet you, if it hadn't taken State Street Brats half a @$#)($%(#^@% hour to get my 2 brat order to me.   I'm quite certain they just lost the order and a manager got around to asking me what I was waiting on minutes before I asked what the F@#$ was going on.

I think so. Felt pretty nauseous and had stomach cramps.  Churning stomach. Couldn't even turn over in bed without feeling it. Woke up and everything felt mostly better. 

The timing was about right. Had what I thought was maybe an undercooked chicken strip in the basket but didn't think much of it until about four hours later.

Hearing rumblings that the semi-final will likely be moved to Sunday afternoon. The Kohl Center is wall to wall HS BBall through Saturday next week.

It could be early... Like even 11am or Noon. But there is just too much to determine right now. UW wants to at least get it to mid afternoon. We will just have to wait and see.

"If" NCAA ever went back to campus sites for regionals, this could be an ongoing problem. It's going to be tough for college's to keep the arena not booked for "potential" games.

Welp, guess I’ll save money not road-tripping.  
Although I’m still hoping to play semi/final at Mariucci. 😁
