Hockeydad probably talked to Jerry at dinner after the Fenway Flop and told him how to handle it......and it worked......what else could have caused the turn around ???

I remember back in January when BC lost 3 of 5, Hokydad said their season was a big disappointment and told us how bad that loss at Fenway Park was. He even laughed off suggestions that BC would get it together and click -- as they have so many times in the past. As I said at the time, it's not what happens in January that matters -- it's February and March that lays the groundwork for April. I wonder how much BC cares that they lost the game at Fenway now. :p

what Fenway game?;) i was there and in my opinion in the middle of the second period of that game is where it started to click.......obviously a subjective opinion but having seen 22 games this year (20-2:D ) that's where i saw it start to come together......sorry to post this on PC's thread, btw

Not a problem. We are pretty open around here to a number of different topics. At least your post was hockey related!!!

Also, I for one will claim anyone willing to claim us.... except if it's Murray. :p

Great job by your team!!!! Congratulations again on a great season.

We knew your boys would get it together. Maybe we can borrow Coach York for an afternoon so our boys can see what a real head coach is like? :eek: ;)

Hockey East is now 3-0 in National Championship games during PC's downward spiral. I'm surprised the league doesn't have a hand in Army's contract extension...

From the land of the utterly reprehensible...

A District Court judge on Monday denounced two Providence College basketball players as "risks to the public" and ordered them held in $10,000 bail after they allegedly picked another PC student at random and beat him up earlier that morning.

What a horrid, awful year for PC athletics. I wonder of the Driscoll/Davis/Army trio how long each one of them has left here...I know Davis is only through 2 years but his freshman recruiting class is nearly as bad as Army's in terms of departures. And at least the hockey players didn't beat up PC seniors just walking down the street. :mad:

That story is so disgusting, it again makes you wonder what the HELL they are doing in there...

If you're going to emulate a PC basketball legend, try not to take after Marvin Barnes.

There is no control at that school. Whatsoever.

james and johnnie are bad bad badddd news and no way represent the basketball program. most of the players are nice guys who would never do anything like what johnnie and james did. out of all of the freshmen players they are by FAR the cockiest and most full of themselves. they have this bizarre superiority complex because they play basketball. johnnie caused controversy earlier this year when he put "can't wait to get the f#*$ out of this place" as his status on facebook...he's essentially a brat and should not be at PC. most of the student body is absolutely horrified by their actions. this is definitely not okay.

I am sure they did not just become baaaad.....this is what Keno recruited and both Davis and Driscoll should pay for the embarasment that the win, win crap has brought to the College......this is not Marvin saying on national TV "Ernie do what he do cause he do" and as a Senior the Alumni raised the roof and stopped the recruits who could not spell their own name.....time for the alumni to speak again

I heard some of Davis and Driscoll's comments on the news. Driscoll's "I'm going to use this as a teaching moment" was just symbolic of the total clueless direction of PC athletics. Davis...I know the guy hasn't been here long, but he comes off as spectacularly clueless as well. Does he really think that these guys were indicative of "representing the best student-athletes" he could find -- and "weren't just here to play basketball"? Really?!? Apparently they were there to assault other students instead, I guess.

It's time for someone to just clean house down there. And thoughts and prayers for this kid who was assaulted, for what sounds like no other reason than walking down the street.

Obviously this is a black eye for the school, and I think that Still should be expelled (easy to say when he avg. 1pt per game) To say this is Keno's fault and the amount of freshman leaving looks bad really isn't the whole story. To group him in with Army is insane. I'm not a college basketball expert, but recruiting in college bball is alot easier to follow then in hockey. The few players that are leaving the team were from what I understand given limited playing time to perhaps slowly work them out of the system in the expectation of transfering. It was a big freshman class this year and opening up scholarships seemed to be a priority. Not to mention Keno has signed 2 top 100's for next year, and 1 top 60 for the following. Also, you have to take into consideration that they (like the hockey team) are in the lower tier of their conference. In order to get the talent they need, sometimes they have to take chances with kids that don't have particularly stellar backgrounds. The situation still comes at a terrible time, it really seemed like the team was on the upswing with Keno at the helm. I found more enjoyment watching the them than the hockey team this year because they were fun to watch.

He recruited them and than spends the year tyrying to weed them off the etam?

Who is at fault? The lady in the cafateria?

The hockey team might take a chance on a kid who has not fully developed on the ice but does not take chances on kids who "don't have particularly stellar backgrounds"
That should not even be an option at a school like PC.
the kids taht left the hockey team went to Notre Dame or UNO, not jail with their hands in their pockets

I am shocked that I agree with Hockeydad......this is most definitely Kenos baby and he should be accountable for both of them as should the AD Driscoll because if he did not know of their ways before they arrived he should have known by now

I have a feeling I'm actually going to agree with this statement when I find out what you're talking about.

It's incomprehensible that Davis wouldn't be at least partially at fault in this...

Both Driscoll and Davis share blame here.

I still can't get over Driscoll's "I'm going to use this as a teaching moment" line. This guy should be fired. Seriously. He has no clue.
