      But in my comparison, whatever BC basketball did pales in comparison to what BC hockey has done. The basketball team has not won a national championship.
      And anything the football team has done pales in comparison with the accomplishments of the sailing team. Time to stop putting money into Alumni Stadium and build a new sailing facility!!!!

      Look, I love hockey and wouldn't even mind rooting for a one-trick pony school if the one trick was hockey. That said, BC basketball probably brings in more money and publicity in a .500 year than BU hockey did by winning the national championship last year.

        Ding ding, exactly.

        The sad truth is that no one cares about hockey, let alone college hockey.

        Put it this way. Commercials on NCAA bouncyball are more expensive than any other sporting event save the Super Bowl. Wachovia pays UNC $1m a year to put their logo on a courtside table. KU earned $2.5m just on licensing revenue following their recent championship. And that's nothing compared to football - Texas football turned a $65m profit last year.

        Just remember this - the cost of one courtside ad at UNC (for the season) s about the same amount of profit the NCAA makes on the Frozen Four.

            I don't know the reason for the sudden jump in performance. It could be the arena itself, it could be a larger University commitment to hockey of which the new arena was just the most visible symptom, or it could be Rico.

            What is impressive about York is that he achieves so much success in an aging arena, on a campus where hockey is 3rd fiddle.
            I think it's a combination of the arena, school and coach. No doubt the new arena helped Miami attract better quality players to the school. Building the new arena shows the commitment from the university. Then you need the coaching staff to sign, seal and deliver the better recruits. The coaching staff must also know what to do with those thoroughbreds.

            Obviously, Rico and Jerry, among others, know how to coach the high end talent they have. You don't consistently get to the level they get their teams to each year without the horses.

            Give these coaches mid level talent and they will probably get them to play above their heads and be competitive with anyone, but to consistently be in the hunt for a National Championship, you've go to have high end talent.

                Sneddon is always a name i think of when someone asks if BU would look at a non-BU guy once Jack takes full time naps. i'd also think that he tries to win his way with the guys he has to bring in. if he was given the 'hand of God' job at bc and was able to pick and choose which high talent smurfs he wanted, there is no way he would trap.
                (though whether then he would be able to win or not, your guess is as good as mine.) Jerry is certainly in a small group who fits the- "He can take his'n and beat you'n, and he can take your'n and beat his'n."

                    Screw York, the best coach in history is clearly Roger Grillo. (LOL)

                      Ben's senior year Miami (13-1) was 10th in one poll and, I believe 11 in the other. Was that like 2003? '99 was the last b ball NCAA win.

                          Top 10 in football and we won the GMAC Bowl I'll have you know. There is a reason why Miami dropped everything and ran with hockey once it took off, even when football and basketball weren't neglected they still stunk.

                            Aside from the obvious disparity between the college football/basketball duopoly and hockey, Jerry York is a perfect ambassador for the school and the sport. His players are in the same classy mold, and the whole package makes me proud to be fan of college hockey and BC. No, I didn't attend BC (my Dad was a Double Eagle), but I've adopted the Eagles as my favorite college sports program.

                            Ideally, the search for a new basketball coach should center around finding the next Jerry York.

                              That's the basis of my comparison. If I hurt feelings by calling the basketball team "mediocre", excuse my poor choice of words. You're right, they've had some pretty good teams. But York's hockey teams have been better.
                              We'll never win a basketball championship, IMHO, as we'll never win a football championship. While we've been a consistent second round NCAA Bracket team (and consistent bowl team in D-1A yet failing to make a BCS bowl), Skinner does not have the total package to compete consistently against the UNC's, Duke's, Michigan States on a regular basis. In football our SoS is damaging to a trip to a BCS bowl; losing Obie hurt the program.

                              This season, in hoops, there have been a bunch of upsets. Honestly, I see Duke (a #1 seed) winning yet another championship.

                                York has built a program from the ashes of Cedorcuk, Skinner has had a few nice teams. York now has one of the three best programs in the country, NoDak is one, not sure who the other is, maybe Michegan.
