Hysterical.

Let me see if I got all of that:

1. An NU reporter commenting as the authority figure on BC student fan support at Conte Forum in "recent years".
2. No mention of Saponari's complete flop to draw a penalty in the first.
3. Butthurt over Cronin leaving
4. No mention of why BC players were "throwing punches" at the end of the last meeting or that NU had two more PP opportunities last night

Did I miss anything?

I like that he made it sound as if Gaudreau is popular because we "stole" him from NU. Being a favorite for the Hobey and scoring the game-icing highlight reel goal in the NC game last year wouldn't really do much for us BC fans if we hadn't stolen #13 from our 7th place arch nemesis Huskies!

The whole "stole" thought is laughable to begin with. When a coach leaves and a player reopens his recruitment process...oh whatever, never mind.

yes, the BC fans "fawning over Gaudreau is over the top" . The Pravda reporter obviously missed the last few weeks of last year and missed perhaps the biggest play/goal in the history of this storied program, Gaudreau's one for the ages vs Ferris St. Honestly, the "article" (and i use that term loosely here) was so ridiculous i stopped reading it halfway through

If you stopped reading halfway, you missed some gems:


Other than that, the crowd was pretty average. The banner raising drew some applause and the Eagles goals brought celebrations, but for a building that was packed full of Eagles fans and students, it was pretty quiet, except when Gaudreau was involved. Its only a matter of weeks before he is more revered than Jerry York over there.


Dax Lauwers stepped up and made a tremendous hit along the boards to break up an Eagles attack. Unfortunately for Lauwers and the Huskies, the hit was deemed too big and he was called for a rough.


Midway through the period, Vinny Saponari was given a 10 minute misconduct for Unsportmanslike Conduct after complaining to the officials, who had been the subject of Northeastern ire for much of the night. With their captain in the box, any hope of a comeback seemed to die.Cody Ferriero let his frustration boil over with a hit from behind penalty in the closing minutes, but unlike the Eagles a week ago, the Huskies refrained from throwing punches at the final whistle.

Ahahahahhahaahahhahahahaha.

Jesus, did this guy fail out of BU and have to leave the freep and transfer to NU?

Maybe this blog belongs to RossiRules? Poor guy keeps getting his posts deleted over here.

BTW, I missed the coaching handshake at the end of Saturday's game. Did Madigan behave himself this time?

Yes, but even Angry Jack takes more time shaking hands with the coaches than Mad Man Jim did. He zipped right through, probably so he could yell at the refs some more for not giving NU 10 PPs instead of 8.

Ok, fellas. I'll grant you that the writer (who usually writes very well) appeared to be a WUI in this case. Why don't we agree to agree that we just saw two pretty good spirited games between an excellent team and what we hope is an up and coming team. NU clearly outplayed BC at Matthews and BC returned the favor at Conte. Each team had a tailwind helping to inspire their play at home. Most of us long time Husky fans respect BC's program (and in my case - I had great experiences with the many BC grads I have worked with in "real life"). OTOH I can't even begin to comment how we feel about bu.

Hopefully our team and our university has earned a bit of respect from you folks as well. Now let's move on and plan for our meeting in the Beanpot final.:)

I kind of like this one on their tweet sideboard.


BC fans cheer louder when the out of town scoreboard shows BU trailing than they did when the banner was raised.

But, I thought NU was your rival?!? :D

haha on the topic of cheering the scoreboard, it was no different than what would happen at agganis if BC was losing or at the whitt when it's now a formality that maine will be losing...

i don't know the proper term for it, but it simply wasn't/isn't a fair portrayal of the fans.

I know the writer and I'm guessing this was drafted a bit too close to the loss at Conte. Too excusey etc. But anyway, yeah I don't see what the big deal with that is, NU cheers at Matthews when the PA announces BU losing also.

good description, i was watching to see what would happen and zipped through fits, like it was a player shaking hands with another player, not fitting or proper when shaking Jerry's hand , maybe Jack's but not Jerry's


Most of us long time Husky fans respect BC's program

i believe that to be true

Did he mention what a thuggish punk Ferreiro has turned into? I brought a two-time Women's Beanpot MVP to the game and she asked what was wrong with him. She also said that the Harvard's women's team could have outskated the Huskies for most of the game, saying they looked disinterested. :-)

They were about as disinterested as BC in the first game. As the poster above said, two good home teams holding serve.

The PA guy at the whit on Saturday even said "And you're going to like this one, fans! St. Lawrence 8234923 Maine 0!"

Sounds like the typical Harvard attitude toward the world. Did she also mention that her team probably had deeper voices that their men's team?:eek:

First of all, the kid is a blogger, not an "NU reporter," which carries the connotation that he's writing in some official capacity. And agree that the post was partisan but no more so than some of the stuff I read on the BC blogs (as well as on this site). So don't get your skirts in an uproar. There's a long road ahead for both of us.

Maybe you should look up youcanplay.org and be ashamed of yourself.
