Re: comment on 10-11 OOC from the INCH podcast, it wouldn't be the first time they were wrong. I've heard of this GLI thing for a while now, and if we're really going to be playing ND to open their new arena, i have trouble seeing Parker wanting two trips out west to play CCHA teams.

I was hoping the next thread would be the BU 09-10 Offseason thread....you know, just for laughs. And sandbagging.

It might as well be since the chances of BU making the NCAAs is about the same as the chances of Rover remaining sober for a day.

Not to be mean, but INCH is wrong...a lot.

Not to be mean, but that's why I wrote 'It wouldn't be the first time they were wrong.'

From Wikipedia:
"Future participants will be Boston University (2010), Boston College (2011), and St. Cloud State (2012)."

Now that that's settled...

Done. Thread over. Shut off the lights and lock the door.

FWIW - I heard no GLI next season, but rather the Shileleigh (sp?) tourney as part of a 3-game deal with Notre Dame. And I heard Ice Breaker in St. Louis in October 2010, even though it hasn't been the requisite number of years. I want/need confirmation though as I want to plan my vacation time for the rest of the year.

I was just told not to hold my breath for the GLI. So, if I were a betting man, I'd put money on the Shillelagh. That won't be confirmed until ND announces the field, though. IceBreaker in St. Louis would be pretty cool. Not sure how I'm gonna get enough money for all these western trips. Probably by not traveling anywhere for NCAAs this year.:(

3 game deal? how would that work? game this season +1 against nd in shilaleiahssaahksdfagh? then another at ND? kind of an odd deal there. St Louis would be fun, but i'd be concerned about attendance - who are the other teams? They'd better not be the likes of Lowell, Army, and St. Lawrence or it'll be a total flop. Why not throw it in Chicago where it's an easy and cheap flight for an eastern team from Boston/NY, and a chip shot for WCHA/CCHA teams.

Southwest flies from Logan to STL - I just found a round trip price for a weekend at ~ $300 And get a bunch of people in your car and drive the Indiana - it's an incredibly easy drive and you'd have to get a rental if you flew anywhere to get to (Fort Wayne?) Get enough people to hop in your car and gas is surprisingly less expensive. I think we all paid about $50 a person for gas to get to Ann Arbor two years ago, and that included extra mileage getting lost going to Niagara Falls/almost driving into Canada!

The Shillelagh is in Hoffman Estates, which is actually north of Chicago. It's actually just as close to Madison, WI, as it is to South Bend. 15 1/2 drive according to Google Maps. I drove out to Notre Dame last year for the bouncy ball game with a truck full of people, and you're definitely right about gas. I think we spent under $50 apiece on gas IIRC.

isn't it faster anyway to detoit by drivin through our 51st state??

i think the rule for extra games tourneys is no more than twice every four years.:confused:

and i'm not sure that christmas/nye break in chicago is as exciting as it sounds :eek: :rolleyes:

Or the chances of Spin Control changing his underwear at least once a month. :eek: :D

It's kinda more fun that way too. Four of us drove out to Minnesota in 04. Two of us left Boston at about 9 am New Year's Day, drove to Framingham to pick up one guy, Wilkes-Barre to pick up the fourth and then headed out. It took us about 23 hours of driving, but it was a trip I'd do again in a heartbeat.

Also, it helped that the Friends basically plied us with whatever was left of their food when we left for the trek back. I think it was probably Paul Giandomenico who told us to grab it, because they (along with Jack and anyone else we saw from BU) was pretty impressed and pumped that we made that drive.

Some decent stories overall (can't tell all of em here, hahaha). Only thing I wish we could've done was stay one more day in the Twin Cities.

That's great, but the INCH podcast had BU going to the GLI in 2011-2012.

Can someone invest in a "DON'T GO NICK!" poster for the evening?
I, and next year's campaign, thank you.
