Men’s, women’s hockey bring 4 titles to Madison

Posted on by

first_imgThe men\’s hockey team celebrates their 2006 NCAA National Championship.[/media-credit]Change and success were the themes for Wisconsin’s hockey programs this decade. Both the men’s and women’s teams introduced new head coaches for the 2002-03 seasons, and the teams won a combined four national titles.The 2000s saw the Wisconsin hockey family gain a new member, as the women’s program began with the 1999-2000 season and quickly became the school’s most successful team.The legacy Badger Bob Johnson started in the ’60s with the men’s team was continued after his son Mark took over behind the women’s bench. The UW women won national titles in 2006, 2007 and 2009, and lost in the championship game in 2008. Wisconsin’s four consecutive appearances in the national title game are an NCAA record.Since 2000, the women have lost just 57 games, and Johnson is the winningest active Division I coach by winning percentage (.815). Johnson’s teams are 210-39-22-3, with three WCHA regular season and playoff titles each.Johnson saw arguably two of the greatest women’s hockey players ever go through Wisconsin in Sara Bauer and Jessie Vetter. Bauer scored the 10th-most career points in D-I history, netting 72 (24-48-72) during the 2006-07 season. Vetter owns almost every NCAA goaltending mark, ranking first in save percentage (.941), wins (91) and shutouts (39). She finished her collegiate career second to only fellow Badger Christine Dufour in goals against average (1.19 to 1.09).Wisconsin’s all-time points leader, Mike Eaves, took over the men’s team from Jeff Seuer and wasted little time in replicating his predecessor’s success. Eaves is 154-116-36 as the team’s head coach with one national title and four NCAA appearances.The men’s program saw its share of quality players in the 2000s as well. Goaltender Bernd Bruckler was named a First-Team All-American in 2004 — UW’s first goaltender to make the first team since 1980. In Dany Heatley and Kyle Turris, the Badgers had their highest-drafted players ever, Heatley going second overall and Turris third. Defenseman Jamie McBain was the 2009 WCHA Player of the Year, and forward Joe Pavelski followed up a successful UW career by playing for the San Jose Sharks.A banner year for both programs, Wisconsin became the first school to win national titles in both men’s and women’s hockey in 2006. The women went 36-4-1, defeating rival Minnesota 3-0 in the title game. The men posted their seventh 30-win season, beating Boston College at the Bradley Center 2-1 en route to a 30-10-3 record.With the dominance of the women’s team and continued success of the men, Wisconsin established itself as one of — if not — the premiere hockey school of the 2000s. Who can argue with four combined NCAA championships in five appearances?last_img read more

Rishard Matthews announces retirement from NFL in fiery Instagram post

Posted on by

first_imgMatthews’ post also described how much players sacrifice on and off the field, only to be money makers and entertainment for other poeple. “It was cool being a professional football player and getting to play a (kids’) game for work,” Matthews wrote, “I will always be a fan of the best sport in the world but for me that (kids’) game no longer exist(s).” Patriots acquire tight end Eric Saubert from Falcons for draft pick Rishard Matthews said Monday he is retiring from the NFL after seven years in the league, but the nature of his announcement wasn’t warm and fuzzy.The Saints released the 29-year-old receiver after the first presseason game, though New Orleans said Matthews walked away and left training camp. Josh Johnson joins 13th NFL team after Tom Savage injury Matthews surprised many after he left the Saints’ training camp, with coach Sean Payton saying it was the receiver’s decision to walk away.He signed with the Saints in June after a tryout at mandatory minicamp. He initially was selected by the Dolphins in the seventh round of the 2012 draft and joined the Titans in 2016, where he led the team in receiving yards that season (945) and the next (795). He also ranked second on the team in catches in 2016 (65) and third in 2017 (53).He requested his release from the Titans last September and signed with the Jets the following month, but ended last season on injured reserve. Now it appears Matthews had some issues with the league, which he described had a culture of “fakeness” and “the brainwashing (and) dividing of culture for a small piece of jewelry” in an Instagram post.”Rishard Matthews the football player No Longer Exist & it’s okay. In life regardless of the right or wrong decisions I’ve made,” he wrote. “I’ve always moved forward with the understanding that regardless of what I’m going through someone is going through something a s— ton worse than my bull—. For athletes it’s important to understand (sic) & Move the f— on.” Related News NFL: Antonio Brown could be in ‘breach of contract’ if he won’t play in new helmetlast_img read more

COVID-19 Update: A Look at Long-Term Care Facilities

Posted on by

first_imgAs of Wednesday, there have been a total of 162,068 positive COVID-19 cases statewide, an increase of 652 overnight. Of that number, there have been 11,880 deaths. Over a seven-day average, with cumulative data from April 11 to June 2, there have been 5,232 lab confirmed deaths at long-term care facilities from the virus. Hospitals statewide have reported a total of 2,250 hospitalizations from April 4 to June 2. Increasing transparency and accountability is another major highlight, calling for new procedures to regulate and monitor facility owners, improving oversight and increasing penalties for those who fail to comply. Lastly, it calls for an overall more resilient and higher quality system. The goal is to require facilities to maintain infection control preventionists to better support current surveillance efforts. There are four core recommendations outlined in the report, the first being to strengthen the emergency response capacity. It suggests establishing a new long-term care emergency operations center, which would be a “central point of command” specifically for public health response for these facilities, Murphy said. It also calls for a forward-looking COVID-19 testing plan and stronger resident and family communications. That’s why weeks ago Gov. Phil Murphy called for a team of experts to look at ways to improve the quality, safety and resiliency of the long-term care system. On Wednesday, the team released its report during the governor’s daily press conference. NEW JERSEY – Residents and staff members of long-term care facilities have been hit the hardest during the COVID-19 pandemic. “We continue to trend in the right direction on all the vital indicators,” said Murphy. “The past two weeks have been filled with many more green lights than red ones.” The team was led by 30-year health policy expert Cindy Mann and former deputy commissioner at the centers for Medicare and Medicaid services Carol Raphael. Their recommendations outline how facilities can move forward and reopen for new residents and visitors, and how they can best address mitigation and protection, said Murphy. The team conducted over 50 interviews to put the report together. That’s why this week the governor announced reopening dates for outdoor dining and nonessential in-person retail shopping, effective June 15. Restaurants and bars will have to abide by numerous safety and sanitary protocols when they do open, Murphy said. Salons and barber shops will reopen June 22, with gyms and health clubs expected to follow shortly after.center_img Next, the report suggests stabilizing facilities and bolstering their workforce, Murphy said. That means ensuring staff members have access to paid sick leave, higher wages, minimum staff ratios for direct care and medical loss ratios to ensure payments are used for patient care “and not for lining owners’ pockets,” he added. “That’s a common sense call given that approximately one-third of the New Jersey nursing homes surveyed in 2017 were cited for an infection prevention and control deficiency,” said Murphy. But new hospitalizations and patients in the hospital, ICUs and on ventilators continue to trend downward since the peak of the virus mid-April. “One of the greatest challenges we have faced throughout this pandemic has been the spread of COVID-19 in our long-term care facilities,” said Murphy. “This virus has had a tremendous impact and taken a significant toll on both residents and staff members. New Jersey is far from alone in this grim reality.” “COVID-19 exacerbated longstanding, underlying systemic issues affecting nursing home care in New Jersey,” Murphy said, reading from the report.
