    Ha, jinx!

    Also, it would appear that the white candy canes are our new regular jerseys. I do not understand why that is and I feel if one would ask Coach Quinn about it, he wouldn't care to answer, not thinking it's anything to be concerned or talk about. That could be me, though.

I think it would have been cool for them to wear the red with you guys wearing the black.
    I STILL prefer the sweaters they wore when I was in school - “BOSTON” with the terrier (and not the number) underneath it. I don’t understand why we need numbers on the front AND back when almost everyone else has a logo or mascot on the front. I get it that for awhile the rules changed and mandated “block lettering” and all that but obviously that is no longer the case. And don’t crucify me but I also liked the BC sweaters with the huge eagle on the front.

    I think the white's are super clean and sharp. I love 'em. Especially paired with the striped socks. #UniWatch

    While we're talking jersey's, why in the name of everything sacred is there black in the USA hockey sweaters!!!?? Red, white, and blue with the big block USA, going diagonally across the front. Thank you.
    It Happened!!!!

    Technically, I think it came up because one of your posters cited the Globe article, which referred to it as a "controversial" Beanpot.

    In regards to recruiting a remark Toot Cahoon made the other night stands out
    He said with BU & BC it comes down to selecting properly more than recruiting
    Plenty of options to choose from

    On another note thought Greenway was excellent today
    Had thought the big surface would be a negative but he was a factor throughout

    I like the throwbacks (both red and white) but do think they are wearing them a bit much. Didn't realize we have not worn the regulars once this year. I would hate to see them go away for good.

    I almost didn't even notice the black with the way it fades into the blue, but now that you mention it, it is an odd color choice.

    Zero times this season, home or away. I too would hate them to go away.

    Not a BU fan obviously, but I really liked the normal reds and whites BU has. Not a big fan of these throwbacks at all, especially the white ones. I'm sure there's throwback sentimental value for BU fans, but from an unbiased perspective, the red and whites with BOSTON across the front are some of the best, most iconic looks in NCAA hockey, IMO

    Won’t matter anyway. They’ll be eliminated soon.

    If only we could find somebody, maybe a FOH member with some access, who could let DQ know that there are a lot of fans who do not want to see the "regular" jerseys faded out.

    Since the talk is about jerseys, the ones that should be brought back are the 1970s version with the Terrier on the front.
    They took off the Terrier and added the numbers on the front because the Walter Brown Arena press box is behind the North goal. They thought it was too difficult to identify the players coming at them, so they dumped the dog and added digits.
    That is not an issue at Agganis, so bring back the dog!!!

    BTW, I do like the scarlet throwbacks and the candy cane whites better the others right now.

    I posed a question about this earlier in the season and someone responded that maybe with the switch to Under Armour, they weren’t able to get the traditional jerseys in time. The throwbacks are nice once in a while for “special” games, but I think they ought to be wearing the ones we all grew up with most of the time. If the Red Wings are still wearing them (the whites anyway), BU should too.

    Interesting discussion on the jerseys. Tough to tell what is going on with things over there. Not that I pay super close attention any more but I don't recall seeing anything about a rebranding of sorts (say BC completely revamping in the summer of 2000 and/or the Under Armor redesign with their stupid "stained glass" stripes). So it seems like BU went from the plain white and reds (for quite a while) to the candy canes (2009ish?) and then to these newer, lesser striped red and whites around the Eichel year(?). But they seemingly had been mixing previous ones in to the season here and there. Identity crisis? I'm not sure what's going on. I liked the old ones, candy canes weren't bad looking back and still not sure about these newer ones.

    You have to remember though, the physical jersey has changed quite a bit since the late 90s when they were heavy heavyweight CCM jerseys that could take a beating. Now everyone wants a slimmer, thinner jersey of performance material started with the Nike Swift movement and going through to the RBK Edge stuff. I'm not sure what the old look from the late 90s would look like on the newer, slimmer stuff but I wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't a good look. It'd be cool to just see BU declare some sort of rebrand on the jersey though and then it's over and done with.

    Re: Boston University 17-18 - thread El Segundo

    The jersey history isn't as complex as this thread may make it seem. Last year BU had 3 sets.

    The Red Wings style classic jerseys, these were the only jerseys BU had for years.

    The throwbacks with more, thinner stripes were introduced in the mid 2000's. In general it seems that fans below their mid thirties (and the players) prefer these throwbacks to the classic jerseys, while the fans above that age (and the coaches) prefer the classic style.

    The throwbacks that say Boston University were introduced in the mid 2010's.

    Last year BU used all 6 (the home and away of each of the 3 sets) about the same number of times. This year BU switched to Under Armour and does not appear to have had the classic/Red Wings made yet, they wear the throwbacks debuted in the mid 2000's almost exclusively, with the 2010's Boston University ones for high profile games.

    I would be surprised if the classic jersey doesn't come back shortly, and expect BU to return to a rotation of all 6 jerseys, but maybe not as evenly split as it was last year. I'd be disappointed if they took any of these 6 out of the rotation permanently, or did a large rebrand.

    The 50s red throwback was introduced at the game where BU played the WJC team at Walter Brown Arena in December 2014.

    If you want to see the classic jerseys go to some women's games (last home game of the season is this Sunday at 3 pm). Coach Durocher has used the classic jerseys since the program began.

    My preference is for the classic jerseys with the late fifties throwbacks worn occasionally and the early fifties throwbacks thrown out.

    I'm also disappointed that BU didn't even mention the 100th anniversary of the men's program at the UMass game.

    Agreed. But I am still wondering why (except for Harry) nobody is discussing the Terrier on the front. I get it that the press box at WBA was on the end. But those days are gone now. I think the uniform is too bland without the Terrier on it and wish they would reincorporate that into the branding again.
