    Apparently we'd have to in order to be allowed to get excited about our team overachieving their way to the #1 seed.

    (Do BC teams ever actually "over" achieve? We hear about how awesome they are every year...)

    It's no Beanpot, but I'm pretty sure that the BC fans would have been celebrating just as wildly as they were back in February had things broke differently. Of course, on here, all the posters would say, "oh, we weren't that excited." Right.

        Uptick of one? Technically. It was a swing of about 10, had we been swept. Just going from the tie to a loss in game 1 would have dropped us from t-5th to t-10th in the PWR.

        Also, moving up into a 1 seed is a pretty significant 'uptick.'

          I understand that getting a #1 seed in the NCAA's is not a big deal to UNH fans, as that only means that you'll lose to a 4 seed instead of a 2 or 3, but to teams with national aspirations, moving into the top four in the PWR is a pretty big deal.

            Just curious, what about the series makes you like your chances? The whole leading for 45 seconds thing? Not saying UNH can't beat BC, just wondering what makes you like your chances.

            I'm not gonna take anything away from UNH on a major accomplishment. Seeing how competitive the league was, even more impressive. I was disappointed BC didn't hang on Friday night to set up a crazy scene at Conte, but BC is still in very good shape heading into the postseason.

              Don't have a dog in this fight, but I'm not sure why a team that lost the regular season title when their chance to win it was in their own hands should be woofing right now. But then again, if good decision making was part of the BC education, students wouldn't be getting beaten on a regular basis in the Maryanne's parking lot by Gambino family enforcers for not paying off their debts in a timely manner.

                Overachieving? Take a look at our goal differential. Based on our pythagorean expectation, we're underachieving a TON.

                The difference between UNH and BC is that had it been BC, we wouldn't be hanging our hats on a regular season trophy when we had just played 105 minutes of **** hockey in one weekend.

                    BC beat the first place team and their fans are all jazzed up. I'm happy for them. Lets not take away their moment.

                        Your responses show how little you actually comprehend of what you're reading; you're twisting everything to fit your desires.

                        What CbG was saying is that UNH OVERACHIEVED, and so if us Wildcat fans are pleased, and excited about that, it's because we didn't expect it this year. After watching the team start 2-6-2, it was an accomplishment, and overachieving.

                        What you don't hear us saying is, "We're going all the way this year." The expectations of most UNH fans is that we'll be lucky to make the Saturday game in Boston, and if we win one game at regionals we'll be pretty pleased. The expectations are not as high as years past, so winning the regular season championship IS a big deal this year.

                        And despite the fact that you won the season series, by all rights it probalby should have been 3-0 BC. Am I thrilled about the way UNH played in the three games? OF COURSE NOT. But if I'm a BC fan, I'm at least a bit concerned about the inability to close out the two games at the Whit -- it's very unlike a Jerry York team. Rover put it quite well; I wouldn't be blowing my own horn too loudly for a 3-2 victory over UNH. If you outplayed us so well, why wasn't the score more lopsided? Yeah, Foster played great when the rest of the team didn't, but last time I checked hockey is a team sport, and you don't get extra goals just for outskating everybody, you have to earn them.

                        If nothing else, it will be a very fun thread to read if UNH and BC make it to the title game (I'll be very surprised, and, holy crap, pleased, if UNH does).
                        I haven't been on here in a year...
                        Now I'm a dad. Holy crap.
