Red Sox fans win a title and celebrate and enjoy without walking around like they own the world, unlike NYY fans who well we all know what this winter was like for us who work with them.

    I have been a Sox fan since the mid 70's and over the years have been to packed houses even when they had terrible teams unlike BC who had a half empty building the 2 reg season games versus VT in its title year(08) of all years. Watch a NYY game from the pre-Jeter years and see all the empty seats those loyal Yankee fans filled.
    I guess this would make you guys the Carolina Panthers then?

    Does it even matter? Would it please you if I were to say the nationals?

    No surprise that this is a ******** point. The HE quarters don't draw well around the league, not just BC.

    Actually, Michigan has the most titles and hasn't won since 1998. Prior to last year, they would have been a great comparison to Yanks fans. BC fans are more like Red Sox fans, great history and tradition, went through a long period without a title.

    I guess both of those are better than being UVM fans. What would that comparison be? The Texas Rangers?

    Ted Ryan on his blog reports Stacey is practicing with the team but it is uncertain if he will dress for the game against Wisconsin. I expect he will be on the ice. Its been a while, but if he is skating, barring an re-injure I expect him to be in the line-up. Maybe with reduced minutes, but Wahs is too important to the offense to be missing the game even if he is less then 100%.

    From the same blog, something I was unaware of

    "He is still tied for third on the team in goals scored and tied for sixth in points."

    He hasn't played in over a month and has missed more then half the games and yet is 3rd in goals and 6th in points. Hopefully he is back !!

    I think DU is a better team today than it was in October. You're argument makes sense if both (or all) teams make equal progress through the year, I suppose. But I don't believe they do. December top 5 UMD finished 6-10 for example. OOC games are an indicator, I agree. I just would tend to give them more weight as an indicator, or comparison, if they took place later rather than within the first few weeks of practice starting.
    Fair enough. So maybe not Bentley, but what about scheduling those team you know are going to be in the low end shooting for teams 20-25? Teams would play a game or two in the beginning against Wisc, DU, Miami and then down the stretch you would end up with games against the middle of the road teams that are TUC but barely. And I don't think any coach would be happy about facing OOC teams as they are preparing for their league tourney. But each to their own.

    Yes, but we're having difficulty in getting our $25M practice facility built. Perhaps if we expanded to 145 pages...

You would be dying to have PC to boost your position..you do this you end up with a BCS type system. I can't wait for that much anticipated DU vs Florida International game

    Actually I don't think that would make any sense. You couldn't "boost" your position by playing PC at the end of the year, (or anytime) because they aren't a TUC. On the other hand if you beat a top 5 team late (or anytime) you could concievably boost your position. The top programs would still look to play the other strongest programs as they do now. An if they can schedule top teams in the second half, all the better. I'd love seeing a weekend of top 10 OOC matchups in February.

    Umm considering they have almost the same record and UVM was able to win two of three in Durham...right now? Probably.
