Likens is also a bit of a surprise but I guess the fact that Mike Eaves will be coaching the team has something to do with it (although I have liked what I have seen from Likens the few times I've seen him).
Re: Goepfert. My bad, sorry.
I'm actually pleasantly surprised that Likens made it. He's been terrific for Wisconsin thus far. I agree that the list is missing some other great NCAA players: Ryan Potulny, Hugh Jessiman and Matt Nickerson are 3 that come to mind.
