I think this could end up being the biggest off-ice story to happen to college hockey in decades. Good job.
    I don't remember if you're a serious poster or not. On the chance you are: at the time of the post you quoted the Globe had mis-linked the newest article's headline with an older article. It was quite odd at the time.

      I reached out to the reporter via the twitters. She said she was surprised by Parker's quote as well but that he "said it several times." She says there will be follow-up soon.

        This article doesn't sound very good for Jack or BU. Institutional control or lack of??

          Very interesting. Even in cases like this, it's usually followed by a denial/taken out of context claim.

            Maybe you've never worked in journalism. A good journalist can usually tell within a few seconds if a player intends to rape somebody. Larry Bird used to try to rape Bob Lobel all the time... it was just part of the locker room culture, and hey, it was the 80s. Now, if a respected BU student reporter says Trivino didn't give her the rapist vibe, I'm inclined to believe her.

Maybe you should go back and actually READ the thread before you comment. I was commenting that they made a controversial statement in the headline and then there was NO MENTION OF IT in the article. Why don't you READ before you shoot your mouth off...
              My bad. I didn't follow the link. I assumed it was the Globe story today about the sexual culture at BU.

                I did not click the link. I assumed it was the same story in today's Globe about the sexual culture at BU and responded accordingly based on chickenlittle's comments.

                  To be fair, the RA opened her door and said she had to as an RA duty. She was wrong, so she has no credibility!!!!!!!!!!!! Implied consent!!!!!!!! He's a good kid. Opening your door = yes. Mermaid was right all along. YES!!!!!

                  The fact that you BC fans revel in the superiority of your team in an admittedly weak league leads me to believe you will be more sorely disappointed when the end comes than we will.

                    Good Lord is this an ignorant statement. So it's easier to get a 3.0 in Engineering at Lowell than a 3.0 at the College of Basic Studies (Coloring Book School or Children Born Stupid) at Boston University?

                      Mookie, most psychologist say rape isn't about being "horny", its about using power over a female in a dominant sexual sense. It goes to the entitlement issue players like Nicastro/Trivino and others have within that school. "I'm a hockey player and I can bang anyone I want so here goes..."

                        True. But I'm guessing the basic defense will be consensual horniness mixed with regret or misunderstanding.

                          Can't wait for the followup. Observing BU respond to this matter is like watching Texans driving on icy roads.

                            Actually, it should be really easy for them. They need to just respond that Coach Parker has been relieved of his duties and that one of the assitant coaches will take over for the duration of the season, watched over carefully by the university.

                            Anything short of that is unacceptable. No way am I going to support a team lead by a man with that kind of response to the current situation, no matter how "nice of a guy" people say he is.

                              “You can’t change the culture that’s evolved here; we’re not going to be able to step into people’s lives and change them drastically,’’ he said, referring to heavy drinking, casual sexual encounters, and co-ed dormitories.
                              Based on the reportage from our Freep guys, I'd bet a good amount of money that he's referring to the general culture of college life and not hockey players specifically. It's a nice trick by the Glob writer to muddy the waters a bit in her placement of this quote and her editorializing around it.

                              Parker just isn't that stupid generally or that naive about dealing with the media. Unless she caught him at his house at 11:30 at night and woke him up for her interview.
                              Go BU!

                                Maybe he'll say he was misquoted. If he did say it, his days are numbered.
