I don't fault the effort or the coaching too much. For the most part, the team has done its best with what they have. But they just don't have the personnel at this point. Could Millan steal a game? Maybe. Two? Doubtful.
    Anything can happen. Just win 2 games and you're in the FF. BU still has a lot of talent though a bit depleted with the loss of players. You still have players like Megan, Chiaison, Clendening, Privitera, Noonan, Millan, etc. to anchor the team.

      Yes, anything can happen ... Just ask Bemidji State. And just making the tournament, as opposed to imploding, is an accomplishment this year. But this is a tough draw for BU. Personally, I think Lowell got a better deal going to Bridgeport.

        The one thing that helps BU is the crowd. Since UND is also here, you just inherited a crapload of fans. There are fans that bought Holy Cross jerseys after their MN upset. Not. Kidding.

            FSN might end up picking up at least our game. I can update you guys if I hear anything. Tough draw for us too. Lots of respect for your program. And just an FYI, the Gopher's record at the X the past 4-5 years isn't too hot (including blowing a 3 goal 3rd period lead to NoDak on Friday). Should be a great game.

              I'm happy with the draw because it means that I will see BU play against at least one team that I haven't seen them play against recently. Unfortunately, since the game is in MN, I won't be able to attend, which is the main reason I wanted the Terriers to be in the East. That being said, I'm eagerly awaiting which local network is going to be picking this up.

              Any BU fans or alumni want to organize a watch party for this game somewhere in the Boston area? I'd be down for going to/help organizing that!

I would not want to be in BC or Michigan brackets and I wouldn't want to play against Miami in the first game which is the other bracket (not saying I'm excited to play Minn or North Dakota).

                  I'm not taking crazy pills and think BU is in any way a favorite or anything but they certainly have a chance of getting to Tampa. They have a Sr goalie with a ton of experience, you have a captain who has played and scored in a National Championship so there are some intangibles that could help. I have yet to see a team shut down there top line and they have good depth at defense. Again I know it's a longshot but I guess this rambling is to say it might not be as big a longshot as people think.
                  You've been taking crazy pills. BU is incapable of putting together enough complete games in a row to make any noise in the NCAA's. Couple that with an ineffective coaching staff and I'm guessing they're one and done.

                      Right now they dont have to play more than one game. They just have to go out and play one road game at Minnesota...

                                This was posted in the Regional thread - a very cool read.
