Erickson: Don’t act surprised by success on ice

first_imgIt was like the perfect sport-themed movie where the classic underdog triumphs in the end and dominates its bigger, more intimidating opponent.Before you get your proverbial undies in a bunch, don’t worry, I’m not talking about football.The unranked Wisconsin men’s hockey team swept then-No. 5 North Dakota at the Kohl Center last weekend. While they didn’t outshoot the Fighting Sioux either night – 27-26 Friday, 42-15 Saturday – the Badgers made the shots that counted, winning with five goals each night, 5-3 and 5-4 respectively.I told you they were good.We could sit here and talk endlessly about how Wisconsin is a young team and needs to mature and find be consistent – which they do – but head coach Mike Eaves even admitted at his Monday press conference that UW didn’t even play cleanly or as nice as he would have wanted last weekend.Clearly, there’s still something more to this team. But for this team so early in the season, the best thing is to keep acting like they have a lot to learn and to prove.Wisconsin went into last weekend knowing it would have a tough matchup with North Dakota. Sure, they were excited and pumped up about the match, but it’s not the easiest thing to face the Fighting Sioux. Also, add to the fact that the weekend before they lost two overtime games in Houghton, Mich., to Michigan Tech.If the Badgers want to keep shocking fans and competitors alike, they need to continue playing with an underdog mentality. They can’t let those big wins get to their heads – that’s where mistakes are really made.The underdog mentality is the best way for the Badgers to succeed. No matter what they’ll be forced to fight through some sort of adversity every game, so what better way to handle it than to just expect it?For example, look at the 2010 Green Bay Packers.The Pack essentially played six playoff games on their road to the Super Bowl. After the Chicago Bears clinched the division, the Packers were grasping at a potential wild-card spot. Luckily for them, things went their way and after destroying the New York Giants and grinding it out with the Bears at home, the Packers found themselves seeded No. 6 in the playoffs.It was not an easy road. Green Bay faced three teams it had previously seen that season, two of which it lost to in the regular season. But the Packers won when it counted and rode the underdog mentality all the way to the Super Bowl.Lo and behold, they won.Last week before the UND series, many of the UW skaters noted how they simply didn’t know any differently from the adversity they had faced in the first two weeks of the season.Through the first four games, Wisconsin was 1-3 largely thanks to three overtime games where it wasn’t able to net the golden goal first.The Badgers became used to the constant roller coaster that defined their first four games. Wisconsin had yet to get a taste of a dominating win.A few days later the young, inexperienced team swept North Dakota and started to make a name for itself.But Eaves isn’t trying to let the Badgers get ahead of themselves.“The fact is that we found a way to win two games,” Eaves said in Monday press conference. “The level of play which we had over the weekend was a step for us, but we’re still such a young team that we’ve got to [keep] making these little steps to improve and play more consistently, the way we want to play, in order for us to be considered an upper echelon team, working our way to be a championship team.”Eaves is trying to maintain this idea that his skaters are still the underdogs. They still have plenty to work on and fight for.It’s still very early in the season, with plenty of hockey left to go and plenty of room for improvement.While the sweep will certainly help Wisconsin work harder and attempt to become a stronger squad – as winning often does – it has also shown other teams around the league Wisconsin’s full potential.Still they can’t get over confident. Wisconsin host Nebraska-Omaha this weekend and while it’s no North Dakota or Minnesota Duluth, the Mavericks are still no one to simply look past or consider an easy win. While big wins can help make a team work harder it can also give any team a certain ego, an ego that makes said team overconfident.Thankfully for the Badgers, Eaves believes they still don’t know any better.Their best way to survive and keep winning is to keep acting as if they are the long shot, dark horse team – or in Eaves’ words, stay na?ve.“I also think it’s just being young and just keep playing, being na?ve.” Eaves said Monday. “Because of their youth, they’re excited to get on the ice every time.”They’ve got the talent to succeed, now it’s just a matter of keeping the same mentality – the same underdog feel – to their team to keep them focused and continually working to become better, more consistent and a dark horse to be wary of.Kelly is a junior majoring in journalism.

Coco Gauff’s Black Lives Matter plea: Love each other, take action, don’t be silent

first_imgCoco Gauff delivered a call for action at a Black Lives Matter rally in Florida this week, with the 16-year-old American tennis rising star saying: “I demand change now.”In a powerful speech, Gauff told a crowd outside Delray Beach City Hall to engage in “tough conversations” and “use your voice,” stressing racism was a problem that involved everyone. MORE: Aaron Rodgers, 12 angry Packers call for change in videoThe death last week of George Floyd, a black man, while in police custody in Minneapolis has sparked protests across the United States and beyond, centering on police brutality toward the black community.Gauff called on her social media followers to campaign for justice in that case, and in her speech she repeated a message she shared earlier in the week: that “being silent is choosing the side of the oppressor.”She said it was “sad” she was having to deliver a message on injustices her grandmother fought against half a century ago.”I’m here to tell you we must first love each other, no matter what. We must have the tough conversations with friends. I have spent all week having tough conversations and trying to educate my non-black friends on how they can help the movement,” Gauff said.”Second, we need to take action. Yes, we’re all out here protesting and I am not of the age to vote — but it is in your hands to vote for my future, for my brothers’ future and for your future, so that is one way to make change.”Third, you need to use your voice: No matter how big or small your platform is, you need to use your voice.”My speech at the peaceful protest in my hometown of Delray Beach, Florida. #blacklivesmatter— Coco Gauff (@CocoGauff) June 4, 2020″I’ve heard many things in the last week and one of the things I’ve heard is, ‘It’s not my problem.’ This is why I have to tell you this: If you listen to black music, if you like black culture, if you have black friends, then this is your fight, too,” Gauff added. “It’s not your job, it’s not your duty, to open your mouth to say Lil Uzi Vert is my favorite artist but I don’t care what happened to George Floyd? Now how does that make sense?”So I demand change now. And it’s sad that it takes another black man’s life to be lost for all of this to happen, but we have to understand that this has been going on for years. This is not just about George Floyd. This is about Trayvon Martin. This is about Eric Garner. This is about Breonna Taylor.”This is about stuff that’s been happening.”last_img read more
