    Evidently Jared Smith is clueless. Can't even pass on the most basic news. Which selection show did he watch?
    Perhaps he had a flashback to 2007, the last time Minnesota actually did earn a #1 seed.
    The worst part is "Boston" Terriers. I cringe when I hear Melrose call BC "Boston" as well.

    But...Melrose brings "passion" to the broadcasts. Whatever that means.

    Actually, didn't they do away with that rule several years ago? I know it's been the typical practice to not have refs from the same conference, but I'm pretty sure there isn't an actual rule regarding it.

    Even though we cringe because we do not refer them this way, technically they are correct in calling BU "Boston."

    Anything "Blank" University can be called by "Blank." Interestingly we never cringe when we hear Minnesota, Northeastern, or even Denver. We just happen to call BU by Boston University or, well, BU. However technically "Boston" is correct. Or, the almost just as cringeworthy, Boston U.

    I don't think they did away with that rule. I know it a rule in College football.

    Boston U would **** me off too. For whatever reason, I don't even like when guys like Brickley overuse "BC Eagles" and "BU Terriers" over the course of a game. How about just BC and BU?

    It bugs me a tiny bit when broadcasters say "Denver University." It bothers me not at all when real people say it, since that is what the letters DU imply, but I think people who make their living (or even make money moonlighting) that way should learn not just the "technically correct" but the actually correct way to name the school. I have no opinion about BC or BU, but if the school doesn't wish to be called "Boston" on air, then they shouldn't be.

    I'm OK with "Boston College". What's wrong with "Denver University"? Is it "University of Denver"? Wouldn't that make you UD???

    I love that Meagher's defense (or defence) was that he was spitting at the Gopher players and not at the trainer.
    Funny you mentioned halos -- I was just about to post how amazing it is you can see the Gophers' halos all the way from 36 years ago! Eruzione "tagged Anderson with a wicked high stick," Anderson "caught" Eruzione. Micheletti "jostled," Meagher "whacked." Meagher "sprayed spit over the whole bench," Smith "reacted instinctively." Those poor Minnesota lads are lucky those prep school jerks didn't take out the imported Canadian shivs they all carried in their skates! (Psst! And still do! Don't tell anyone!)

    that is a midwest thing.. primarily with the big8. OU is university of oklahoma. NU is university of nebraska... so the others kinda picked up and applied the same logic.

    True, they should just use "dynasty" when referring to Miami of Ohio.

    I don't know what this means. I do know that the first page of Miami's media guide asks that they not be called "Miami of Ohio" so for the media to call them that is just ignorant. I'm sure there are other schools with similar things.

    It was a USCHO meme from a few years ago.

    I still would rather be a Badger--or a Bronco, in this case--than be a boy named Sioux.

    I'm sure you'll be sorely disappointed to hear that there will be no boys named Sioux on the ice this weekend...now you will probably be able to find thousands in the stands.

    I was cooking and asked my wife to turn on the selection show on ESPNU. The first words out of her mouth were, "Oh My God, look at that guys hair!" She had never seen him before, quite funny.

    I am sure ESPN might have convinced you to believe otherwise, but Boston isn't the center of the sports world. And since BU doesn't have any other big time programs in other sports, most people probably don't know who the hell BU is.

    Didn't say it was, but what would you consider the center of the sports world?

    Brickley, as in andy brickley, says what I mentioned during bc-bu games televised on NESN...as in new england as the audience.

    Duluth fans cringe when someone just says "Minnesota."
