    Who is to say it still can't?

      I'm not saying it can't. I'm trying to say that the expectations have changed. If they it make it to the FF, we'd all be stunned/surprised/ecstatic. Whereas if we had the entire team in tact, I think they could've played well enough to the extent that anything less than a FF would be a disappointment. I mean this is all hypothetical - just my personal views.

        It's going to happen. And you're going to go through BC in Worcester to do it too.

Trivino has never been one of those players. Even outside of the rink, he'll say hi and is plenty of friendly, but has never been even close to saying or doing anything inappropriate.

            Great win, even if it was Vermont. Nice to see the boys bounce back well and have some good news here. Lots of smiling (relieved?) faces at the end.

              The kids who (possibly) embarrassed the team "off the ice" are no longer on it. Enjoy the good hockey played by the kids who are earning their scholarships, not squandering them. No shame in that.

                    Oh, they most certainly already embarrassed the team/school regardless of what happens down the line, but I understand your point.

I think any BC fan will tell you that their team this year is somewhat underwhelming roster-wise compared to years past yet they are probably the current favorites for the #1 seed and the national title.
                      BC finished fourth in Hockey East and won a national championship a few years ago. Proving almost anything is possible, if you get hot and get great goaltending at the right time.

                      There is no favorite this year.

                          On the road so catching up...so the link was broken on an article and when it was fixed it came up with an article in which Parker said a bunch of inflammatory things that contradict what he said in 2 other interviews? Is the second link valid?

                          At least we won. That is a small consolation in a BAD week.
                          I believe in life, and I believe in love, but the world in which I live in keeps trying to prove me wrong.

                            A few observations:

                            1.) The team was ready to play - congrats to them and Parker for that, no small task considering
                            2.) Alexx Privitera is really, really good-perhaps his return is more important than we/I thought?
                            3.) UVM is pretty bad - If I were Sneddon I'd be getting my resume together, what happend to Madore?
                            4.) How does one graduate from North Dakota in 2 years? Summer school, AP credits, or what???
                            5.) Happy for Grant, I always though he deserved a little more time that he got, he might be a good pro after all if he can keep his rebounds under control - "You can't teach size"

                            Hopefully they keep it rolling tonight.

                              Only watched bits and pieces. Agree wholeheartedly on Privitera. I think he turned the corner before getting hurt, but I definitely see him having a very good career at BU.

                              Great to see Rollie get a shutout, even if it was against a weak team.

                                The follow up article has been posted with more from Jack
                                http://www.boston.com/news/local/mas...?p1=News_links

                                But women’s advocates at BU said bigger changes would be needed to address a pervasive “rape culture’’ at the school, one they said was exemplified by recent comments by longtime hockey coach Jack Parker.

                                In an interview with the Globe Thursday, Parker said he would cooperate with the task force but he doubted campus culture could be changed dramatically.

                                “It’s certainly different than it was in the ’70s. Sexual mores have changed,’’ he said. “There’s girls on every floor; there’s no men’s and women’s dorms. The idea that hooking up is OK - I don’t think that term was even used in the 1970s. . . . Ninety-nine percent of these problems start with alcohol and sex. That’s a bad combination.’’
                                Again this quote out of context so I'm not really sure which "problems" Parker is talking about. Hopefully the problems he's referring to aren't his players raping coeds, but it's unclear. Also, I'm a little confused why the article seems to be conflating "campus culture," which is not the target of the task force, with men's ice hockey culture, which is.
