  • Over the years I have seen the protocol violations called here and there....remember a call against UNH at Providence, and remember a home game at the Whitt where the call went against BU....

      We don't care about the "color" of the uniform. What we DO care about is the gamesmanship. OBVIOUSLY the violations are deliberate and they're pushing the envelope trying to intimidate and see what they can get away with. Classless.

        I honestly can't believe this is a thing. Did this start on Twitter?

        Anyway, my buddy is only seeing tix available in the corners/behind the net. That can't be right can it?

        • Bummed about the 2:00 game time. So lame. I would have gone with the family for sure if it had been a more normal 7:00 PM game time. NCAA obviously does not care about attendance.

            Probably not selling upper sections until all lower are sold.
            I will not be out cheered in my own building.

So no, I don't think it's petty at all to post about it. And I would hope that Coach Pandolfo knows the rules as Coaches Parker and Walsh did. I suspect that he allowed Merrimack to wear the jerseys because he was showing spoetsmanship, but again, not's not allowed in teh postseason.

              Yes, BU took to the ice at the 1 minute mark as required, while Merrimack did so before then, when they were supposed to wait until the 0:50 mark. And again, that is a 2 minute bench minor, so BU should have had power plays to start those periods as well. However, I blame the Hockey East officials for being lax in that regard.

              Yup, it is a rule (certainly not one of which I was aware) but I still believe it was of you petty to have commented on it. BU won the game. No one called a penalty. It had 0 impact on the GAME that was played on the ice which was terrific and hard fought.

              I get it. You know the rules, perhaps better than anyone else on this board. You clearly know BU hockey history and tradition. This was a colossal "nothing-burger".

              Again, as I posted before, it is a really bad look for Borek to have dissed Hutson. Lane is an incredible player and it is great he is on your team. I hope he stays all 4 years, but I don't think that will happen.

              Good luck to BU, their very passionate fan base (hello Scarlet and others) in Manchester.

                Obviously, there is "gamesmanship" in EVERY game. There was nothing called when a Merrimack player went to the bench to get a new stick and a BU player grabbed onto it at the same time. Just giving an example of a player trying to get an edge when he could get away with it. There are TONS of attempts to intimidate during games (scrums after the whistle, that extra push in the crease, a slash behind the play). If you can do it and it gives you even the slightest advantage, why not?

                Seriously, do you think there was one BU player who was intimidated by the color of Merrimack's uniforms or that they came on the ice early? Maybe the "attempt to intimidate" backfired and it ****ed off the BU players into playing harder!

                  Bottom line is Coach Borek, who as a UNH fan I WANT to like, pulled several minor dickish moves. Some were technically rules violations. Any single one no big deal, but the combination along with his demeanor were a bad look. If more of that beats Quinnipiac, I’m in.

                    His disregard for protocol rules shows a pattern of breaking NCAA rules and regulations, which I find troubling. Remember, he violated NCAA recruiting rules back in 2009 when he was associate head coach at UNH.

                    Furthermore, his challenge of BU's winning goal makes him look like a sore loser.

                      On this, we're in complete agreement.

                      Sorry about "petty" reference. I get a little passionate about my team sometimes.

                      I do appreciate your rules knowledge and generally encyclopedic knowledge of all things college hockey.

                          What were your thoughts on the infamous Parker headset incident (I think it was a headset) and his eating a sandwich? Sounds like you guys would be all over Scott Borek for those!

                            He saw the losing HEA semifinals coaches do it and wanted to fit in.

                              And Borek may come off as the "good guy" in a matchup with Rand Pecknold.
