    no reason these boys can't do what sparty did in 07. look at that roster -- nothing great. played like bu has been playing since january. just keep playing your game.
    I'm being selfish here. I'd like to be able to go to Worcester or Bridgeport to see BU live instead of ESPN online, that's all.

      ..the above is what priceless posted yesterday. so with the loss to umo yesterday the only way bu gets to keep the uhn wins in their tuc record is to lay down
      but then they get 2 losses also! no win situation.

        Winning on the road hasn't been a huge problem for this team, right?

        Again, as someone has said before, the Pairwise doesn't really exist until tournament time. Tracking them right now is interesting, but the fact that teams drop out of TUC is not "punishment," it's just a result of nothing final yet.

          you can't always get what you want.
          but sometimes you just might find you get what you need.

            But you're not getting "penalized." The "full body of work" (as the pundits like to say) has not been considered yet, because the season isn't over yet.

            The other thing is, as I have mentioned before, we are not going to finish in the Top 4, so that means (unless we slip below #8 - which is why we can't screw around and need to put UNH away in two games) that we are going to get shipped SOMEWHERE other than Worcester anyway. We'll be a #2 seed, but yes, probably out West since Lowell is also ahead of us so they'll likely go to Bridgeport. I'd like to go in person as well, but what can you do? It's a tough situation. I would have liked to have seen Millan last night, because, unfortunately, every game is a HUGE game with the PWR. But I certainly understand that Rollie has "earned" the right to start which was probably his last game and it is no reflection on him. It's just that EVERY loss hurts with the way the system is now. I'm still really not sure that I didn't like it the way it was before, where the emphasis was on WINNING GAMES and not "ratings." Now there's this huge distraction..."well, if we lose in THIS round maybe we can still make it, and as long as we win 1.678 games before this date we'll be OK." Before it was just WIN THE TOURNAMENT or you don't go. Sometimes we outthink ourselves, and especially with a team that doesn't alway seem to play with a sense of urgency (and I apologize to Rover - he's right - last night made me retract everything I said about how you couldn't claim that BU comes out flat for big games). Giving up a goal 38 seconds into the game is inexcusable.

            So it is what it is. Guess we'll be watching on TV. Look at the bright side...at least we can watch the games. A few years ago all you saw was the championship game...

              that is by no means a certain truth.

                The only certain truth in life is that we will die someday...but it's d**n likely that we won't finish in the Top 4!

                  Yup...that's what I've been saying. But it's like anything else - all this information overload effects the team too. They don't live in a vacuum and they're aware of all of this stuff. So it's hard not to. As I said above, sometimes we think too much. Things need to be simplified. And whatever happened to the old NCAA "guideline" that playing well at the end of the year carries more weight? Under the PWR, every game is treated equally. That's why it's difficult to play a backup goalie, for example, even in October, which stinks. But it is what it is.

                      The only way UML or BU can be a #1 seed is by getting to the HEA championship game at minimum... and they'll likely have to go through each other to do it. I can't imagine there's a situation where both end up as a #1 seed without BC losing to UMass and some CCHA/WCHA insanity (i.e. Michigan getting swept, Ferris getting swept, UMD getting swept).

                            Is it true?
                            Expectation has the encumberance of truth while hope lives its own life, wild and free.
