This year was slightly different, in that I consulted others for their input (thanks for all the photos and campaigns!) I agreed, with some advice, disagreed with some, and was totally puzzled by some. I decided to invite fellow fans to make their own lists.

Wow, Rob Nolan really sealed that deal:)

Perhaps for the readers not familiar with the players you can link their pix to their name?

Oh, and I object to Hot RJ being on the 2nd team!! :)

Runninwiththedogs said...

I thought about linking, but I made my judgment based on things other than the team photos sometimes... I mean, Bryan McGregor's is downright uggo this year, but I know he is hot. So I think I'll leave the list as it is.

RJ should try harder next year. Maybe hire a stylist? LOL. He's got some tough competition.

Anonymous said...

What is wrong for voting 9 times for one player? Seriously.

HockeyMom- and not the scary "Hockey Mom" we saw standing by they ice cream line either.

LetsGoMavs said...

Good point. Those roster pix are horrible! Perhaps we should take a WCHA tour in the fall and take the pix for rosters!

I demand a recount. Palm over RJ? No way? I sense a little blogger bias here:) As I noted, only you and Hockey Mom (which was your vote) wanted him. TEAM BIAS!! :)

That's ok though. The less women tho know he's hot, the better:)

Nin said...

I know I know....next year we all take candid one and one photos with each member of the team. If they so choose to help their photo and "all hottie team" chances by taking off their shirts, more power to them. But if they get to take off their shirts I want to be the one that makes sure all the abs in the photos are real. Can't have any cheaters on the all hottie team!!

Runninwiththedogs said...

HM didn't even vote for Palm... she is a retard and voted for Porter 9 times... so I filled it in for her.

Nin, I think you're on to something. Keep it on the downlow so we don't get 250 restraining orders against us...

LetsGoMavs said...

Nin- I think that's the best idea to come out of WI this year!!

Anonymous said...

I am not a retard....that was a ligitimate vote.

HM

The Aaaahj said...

Umm… for someone claiming to not be retarded you could at least spell legitimate correctly. ;)

Runninwiththedogs said...

HEY, don't talk about my girlfriend that way!

The Aaaahj said...

Whoa, you have a girlfriend?
(quagmire voice) alllll right giggity giggity (/quagmire voice)

WinTwins57 said...

RWD... Great list!! :) I do agree that RJ should have been first team, but I've seen him up close and you haven't, so I can't blame you. If you saw him in person, your heart would beat a little faster at the mention of his name too! :) Glad to see someone else appreciates Bobby - I didn't dare vote for him, I thought you'd delete my email!! :) Nolan has him beat anyway... Bobby would be on my second team!

I like Nin's idea!! Can I come? I'll be done with my NP Exam by then and in a much better frame of mind! :)

Runninwiththedogs said...

We could have an abs contest... whoever grates the most cheese on their abs, wins. Rrrrrrrrrar!

The Darkness said...

I feel so wrong just reading this, but I'm glad to see that me and my two co-bloggers made the list I feel so hot right now.

MeanEgirl said...

Bobby G goes "woof woof!"

If anyone seriously thinks he's better looking than Robby, I'd highly reccommend getting glasses/contacts/laser surgery/eye transplants.... Even The Darkness would agree with me.

:P

MeanEgirl said...

me, are you a SCSU fan by any chance? And with all those SCSU people... WHERE IS BORER?!!

me said...

yes, i am an scsu fan. but borer, sad as it is, doesnt make it on my hottie team... there are many i would love to include but room doesnt allow. so i had to pick my tops.

me said...

oh and on the top of my all hottie team list for next year will be the michtech recruit from canada, jordan baker, whom i sat by at the final five.

k.w. said...

How does UND coach Dave Hakstol not make the list? My ladyfriend is always going on and on about that guy.

Runninwiththedogs said...

Hakstol is okay, but he looks too stressed all the time.

You should introduce your lady friend to Le Russell.

MeanEgirl said...

me: HELL YES on Jordan Baker. Good choice!

And Hak? He always looks pissed or something. Always has that same look on his face. Jamie can at least look mad.
