    Any idea since when? Because there are multiple examples of this not being the case when I look at Beanpot historical results.

    I have to admit that with all the talk of declining attendance, I was impressed by the crowd tonight. The tops of the corners had some bare spots, but other than the place looked full (granted, my seats were facing the side with both the NU and BC contingents).

    I've been to a few. The more recent ones have been because I have gone with a group of work friends with different allegiances. If BU happens to be in the consolation game, I do my best to get there early enough to watch it. After all, it is still a BU Hockey Game...

    The most memorable (other than the Hodge controversial ending in 1987) would be 1994 (I think that is right).. Harvard took care of us in the first round, we came back and trounced Northeastern 8-0, on the way to a very respectable second half, making it to the Frozen Four (as did Harvard).

    Side note: I have a photo from that game with Shane Johnson and Rich Brennan on d, and a line with Bill Pierce, Shawn Bates, and Jon Jenkins on the ice at once. Can anyone tell me why that is sort if a cool thing? (It's possible that only 4 of the 5 were in it, and that my mind has completed the group over the year - I'm too lazy to look for the photo right now).

    Why? What has BU or BC done to deserve it? Nu and Harvard, both better than BU and BC. NU is champ, they play late game.

    Of course it will be, this is how the pairings work based on the prior years performance...it just has not shaken out this way before. Get a nice spot on the 3:45 Commuter from Framingfish!

    Yes, I have been to one of these games. That usually hasn't been necessary as a BU fan, since we haven't actually played in many of them historically. It was in 2013 - Jack's last Beanpot game as head coach. I live down here in Florida, and had arranged the trip to see the Beanpot final with my family. It was the first Beanpot game I was going to see in person in 20 years. We always make the final, right? Well, we didn't and we went anyway since I already paid for the trip. It was my family and about 20 others in the building to start the game. As everyone knows we lost that one badly. I think as it turned out, if we won that game, we were in the NCAA tournament.

    Maybe you should be. That opened the door for York to clean up the mess!

    I am hoping - hoping - that Albie is not BU's Cedor.

    This isn’t a black and white issue. Give me the right kids with highend skill for two years - plus good coaching, you can win.
