    Preview for this weekend: https://www.bcinterruption.com/bosto...ts-predictions

    Surprised at how much a sweep (as impossible as it looks) would lift BC in the Pairwise. In a vacuum we wouldn't pick up any positions, but we'd put ourselves back with that huge group from 4-7 in RPI (though we'd still be 10th weirdly because of some flipped comparisons).

    The infinite Escher staircase is brilliant. Only a Huskies' fan wouldn't feel your pain after seeing that.

    Very interested in streaming this game tonight. It "feels" like bc should be able to sweep given their talent and you sort of expect that they will just flip a switch and turn on the power that has been mostly dormant so far this year.

    Even in the worst case for BC, where it flounders through the rest of the regular season, there still isn't some unbeatable power team waiting for you in the conference tournament. Win four games in your playoff and you likely get a winner-take-all game with NU for a spot in the FF. The regular-season pressure is much greater on a team like tOSU.

    I suppose, but if they flounder the rest of the way -- which consists of almost exclusively Hockey East games -- who is going to have any faith in BC winning the league?

    So now I read what you wrote ...
    ... every bit of evidence we have points to a Northeastern sweep.
    What! They were lucky to beat you last time. If BC can stay awake for the whole game, I like the Eagles. Unless there is something horrific going on in the BC lockerroom (and as our crack BC investigative reporter, we rely on you to tell us these things), then BC is still the more talented team and should win. Crowley must have enough video of teaching points by now that they'll start to play better, and they don't have to improve a whole lot to reverse these results.

    Last time we had won 12 of our last 13. Currently we are 1 for our last 6.

    Nothing that I know of. From what I've heard, it's actually an exceptionally tight-knit group. But who knows.

    I think that its some sort of reverse psychology trick that he's trying. Either that or he's sandbagging because he's tired of casting himself as the overconfident BC fan. I can't imagine he really believes they won't find a way to get at least a point out of this. Although now that I think about it, the Eagles' most impressive win was ... beating BU maybe?

    I think it's a motivational tool, and after all the sweep predictions since the beginning of time, who knows, it just might work.

    It wouldn't surprise me if we got something. But come on. 1 for our last 6. NU is hot. And like you said, we don't have any impressive wins. Sports are weird but based on the evidence, NU is supposed to win these games. \_(ツ)_/

    Am I wrong?
