    I'm glad to be a BU fan
    Funny you would metion that...I was just over on the UNH thread and they are in a FRENZY. The "fire Umile" cries have been renewed. But let's look at this objectively. Coaching and the system are undoubetdly essential components of a successful formula, but the most critical ingredient has to be recruiting. A coach can't play...the reality is that if you look at all of the champions in the past few years, they have had extraordinary talent. So as much as some want to criticize Umile (and even Parker, for that matter), did we forget that we have THREE players from last year's team in the NHL and another who has been up to the big show? The REAL reason we should be glad to be BU fans is that at least we can still get players to come here. Schools like UNH and Maine (now that they can't pay them to go there) are in real trouble. Now that there is more American talent and recruiting has moved away from the small-town Canandian kid who is just happy to come to the states and go to college, you can't get players to go to those schools out in the sticks. They all want the same amenities that schools like BU have to offer - the perks of the city, nightlife, modern facilities (read: "money"), beautiful new dorms. I just wonder about the ecomony and how long parents can continue to afford youth hockey programs. That may be the part of the equation that wans't mentioned when Jack was talking about the "decline" of local talent.

      And I think that you should edit your story to change the start time of Friday's game to "8-ish p.m." Or maybe "any time after 8pm". Because even if the BC-Vermont game doesn't go into OT (which would be a surprise because I thought it was a HE rule that when BU plays the nightcap the opening game must go into OT), our game won't start at 8pm.
      The Beanpot and HE tourney have always been optimistic in regards to start time. Maybe if the 5 PM game always started at 5 on the dot (and not 5:15), it might start on time.

      You still have to have 40 minutes for the warmups and zamboni-ing.

        That's true. I actually mentioned to BU Hammer at the Beanpot how dumb it is that they even list the second game at 8. Same goes for the semis. I think they just wanna trick people into thinking they'll be out of there by 10:30.

          Why not? #97 seemed to do both pretty well last year

            I was reading the Globe's story on last night's game and saw this comment, which surprised me:

            Although the Warriors were right in that they had the tools to beat BU, which they proved Saturday night to even the series, last nightís deciding contest was pretty well commanded by the Terriers, who earned a 3-0 victory in front of 3,433 at Agganis Arena. BU (18-16-3) heads to TD Garden for a league-record ninth straight trip to the Hockey East semifinals Friday against Maine.
            Really?? Nine years in a row?? That's impressive!!!! Not sure why I didn't realize that.

              Glad to see you read my story. Here was my first sentence:
              The Boston University menís hockey team will be heading to the TD Garden for the Hockey East semifinals for a record ninth straight season.

                  Not sure this has been mentioned.... not sure why it really would be mentioned....

                  But we slipped in at 20 in the USCHO poll, maybe we can hang a banner about it!
                  Let's go Terriers!

                    Hey, remember that football game where we beat Kurt Warner in the playoffs?

                      I wish they'd stop this, these national rankings get the team too high on itself!

                        HAA is selling students tickets in 330, so it appears the BU designated section is on the same side of the rink as last year, but opposite side of the red line, if anyone cares.

                        Are you reminiscing about reminiscing?


                        Edit: also the HE exodus to the pro's has begun:

                        UMass has lost Wellman to a max rookie contract
                        NU is reportedly about to lose Newton as he is finalizing a deal with Bonino's squad. So much for not signing players because of their AHL issues...
