    Maybe Nu should work on winning the beanpot first and/or filling up their arena more than once a year with people who come for reasons other than just to boo the other team before we continue with the dynasty talk.

    A question I have is, once the NCAA gets around to punishing NU for cronin's cheating, will they get a new postseason ban or just get credit for time served?
    ?????????? try decaf..
    GO NU HOCKEY
    Always bullish on the future.

      If your team is as successful as BC has been the last few years, you should see a rise in fan attendance. But that kinda support builds over time. When the islanders won their cups in the 70's they had a huge dedicated fan base, now you can barely give those tix away.

      My point is that what he was trying to say (and what is true of nearly all sports programs, franchises etc.) is that success brings fans and if NU had that success we'd fill the lower bowl too.

      In addition, bu and BC have more successful histories and a more dedicated alumni base. 20 years ago NU was a commuter school and now were a major top 100 research university. With that (in time) will come a broader more supportive alumni base that actually cares about their alma mater.

      Time and success will bring support. Unfortunately the other big programs in Boston and just outside of Boston have that history. We are still building over here.
      GO NU!

        hope your right. NU's academic ascension has been going on for a while now so maybe your theory will come to fruition in the coming years. What has always been striking to me is the lack of alumni that go to your games . I would venture to say that at BC it's the opposite, there's almost always more alumni than students at Conte Forum since i've had season tickets. I hope this season students continue the trend of the past couple of years with their great support growing even more

              Pfffffffffft. We have 8 days before our first home game. You prob won't see squat until late in the week.

                    So infuriating. We should have the tickets a month in advance. Not a day in advance.

                    b) fanboys chanted 'wheres your beanpot' while getting blown out in the semis of the HE tournament

                          Thanks. Just bought an HDTV in May, so this is my first college hockey season with it. In seeing replays of other games on the FCS channels, it looks worse than it ever did on a non-HD TV. Is there something on the TV that needs to be adjusted for that? Or is that just how it is?

                            That's just how it is. There are two issues at play, psychology and aspect ratios. The widescreen ratio does mess up the picture if it's not an HD feed. There might be ways to mess with your TV settings and have the ratio changed to 4:3 instead of 16:9 in standard def - that makes it a little better.

                              Welcome to the 21st century.

                              Make sure you have the screen settings/picture settings/whatever your particular manufacturer calls it to "Full" as opposed to "stretch" "zoom" "adjusted" etc. this at least makes it so your TV is not purposely distorting the aspect ratio to fill the screen differently, besides that I'd agree with Joe and say it is a lot psychology.
