First off props to Michigan Tech Guide for the video. What a horrible way to lose a hockey game and you have to feel for the Wisconsin Badgers. In looking at this video, I don't know how this goal counted for the Huskies. There looks like there is definite contact behind the Wisconsin goal. I am not sure what the WCHA officials saw there?
This is a perfect example of why fans in the WCHA hold the on ice officials in contempt, this was a horrible call and this goal should have never counted and the blown call could end up causing Wisconsin home ice or a a spot in the NCAA tourney.
Apparently the Badgers were unamused by the call as well. Andy Baggot had to say about the incident.
Replays showed Pietila skated into Ramage and drove the UW captain into Peterson, who was trying to play the puck behind the net. The cage was empty when center Brett Olson fed Baker alone in the slot for the controversial winner.
It seemed that a penalty was warranted on the sequence, but referees C.J. Beaurline and Pat Britt had a different view.
"If nothing else, interference," UW coach Mike Eaves said after jawing angrily with the two officials before leaving the bench. "Judging by the sheepishness of the two young referees, they had no command of the play."
This is why the WCHA officials are looked at as a bunch of bumbling buffoons and have no respect. This also one of the reason that you will see fans of the teams that are going to the NCHC not wanting the WCHA officials reffing their games in the future. I am just hoping that the NCHC leadership will not allow WCHA officials to ref games in the new league. I would be willing to bet that the B1G isn't going to want these refs in their league as well.
MADISON, Wis. -- The road to a perfect season becomes substantially more difficult in the coming weeks for the University of Wisconsin football team. Away games against Michigan State, Ohio State and Illinois remain on the Badgers' schedule. But before looking ahead, here's a look back at Wisconsin's performance during a 59-7 drubbing of Indiana on Saturday at Camp Randall...
MADISON, Wis. In the adrenaline-infused bowels of Camp Randall Stadium, with Wisconsin football players celebrating yet another blowout victory, there was Travis Frederick somberly expressing disappointment.
Really. Despite a 6-0 start and a No. 4 national ranking already in tow, the Badgers burly offensive lineman had found an area to critique.
Frederick was speaking specifically...
Wisconsin 59, Indiana 7. Eric Crouch did it. Cam Newton did it. Even Andrew Luck did it, just two weeks ago. And now Russell Wilson has done it, too, adding the inveitable "Is there anything this guy can't do?" moment to his Heisman highlight reel on a 25-yard touchdown catch from Montee Ball in Wisconsin's 59-7 obliteration of Indiana. Not to nitpick, Hoosiers...

No.4 Wisconsin wasn't going to need its best effort to get past Indiana, but that didn't stop the Badgers' offense from running wild. Rushing for 332 yards and four touchdowns and unleashing a perfect halfback pass, running back Montee Ball and quarterback Russell Wilson stole the show as the Badgers crushed the Hoosiers Saturday.
Quarterback Russell Wilson added a new chapter to his brief-but-growing legend, making a touchdown catch on a trick play as No. 4 Wisconsin routed Indiana, 59-7, on Saturday. Wilson added another memorable moment to his résumé when he caught a 25-yard score from running back Montee Ball in the second quarter. Ball had a huge day, rushing for three touchdowns.
The No. 5 Nebraska volleyball team improved to 7-0 in Big Ten play on Friday night with a 3-0 (25-21, 25-15, 25-21) sweep of the Wisconsin Badgers at the UW Fieldhouse. With the win, the Huskers remained one of two unbeaten teams in conference play.
Quarterback Russell Wilson added a new chapter to his brief-but-growing legend, making a touchdown catch on a trick play as No. 4 Wisconsin routed Indiana 59-7 on Saturday. Wilson, who is being touted as a Heisman Trophy candidate by Wisconsin (6-0, 2-0 Big Ten), added another memorable moment to his resume when he caught a 25-yard score from running back Montee Ball in the second quarter.
No.4 Wisconsin's high-scoring offense doesn't have too many negative drawbacks, unless you are the team's senior punter. Brad Nortman hasn't been used much in the last two seasons with the Badgers' lighting up the scoreboard but when he gets the opportunity, Nortman shows he's one of the best in his line of work.
