Appreciation for Paris and other links

Lost in the shuffle earlier in the season, Biko Paris is now making a difference and getting attention.


BC goalie Molly Schaus is a finalist for the most prestigious honor given in women's college hockey.


New Jersey lineman Dan Fosse likes what he sees at BC. I expect Spaz to close on a few recruits this spring.


The Fenway Sports Group are showcasing their success with BC in an attempt to win business with Ohio State.


HD attempts to move out of the fluff zone with a piece on returning scorers. Good news for BC, however, I think it might be a case of apples and oranges. Why compare returning scorers when we have a new offense?


In this notebook, Skinner continues his support for Sean Williams. I think the miscommunication in Williams' return was unfortunate. That said, the way he handled the arrest and court appearance shows that he has not matured one bit. What a waste...

obviously Sean Williams is not a model of maturity but anyone who as ever dealt with BCPD knows they are complete dicks

ATL - from what I can tell, the Patty Kazmaier Award is given to the best player in women's hockey. It's not just for goaltenders. My understanding is it is the women's version of the Hobey Baker.

Fixed. Thanks Brian.

It doesn't sound like Williams covered himself with glory. Still, As bcsuperfan08 said, the BCPD are known for being obnoxious and unnecessarily nasty towards anyone and everyone on campus. There is no way BCPD treated Williams any better than they would the scum of the earth and that for being invited to campus to watch a basketball game. The self-importance of the BCPD never ceases to amaze me.

I feel less informed about football in general for reading that HD article. She is a terrible writer.

I know some don't like looking ahead, but if BC manages to win both remianing regular season games and finish 10-6, I think we can sneak into the #4 seed in the ACC and get a bye. NC, Duke and Wake seem like looks for 1-3. I think Clemson will lose to Wake in their final and finish 9-7, and I think FSU loses to Duke tonight and can finish no better than 10-6. They would lose the tiebreaker with BC.

Morrina - I'm with you - let's bring home the bacon tomorrow night. Many of us did not think we'd be in a position like this during that earlier stretch of ACC losses - especially during January. If I was a little bit of a Doubting Thomas then, I'm there now - in the flesh :-)

I scored a ticket for tomorrow night's game at the RBC Center in Raleigh from my long-time friend who works for the Carolina Hurricanes Hockey Team (formerly Hartford Whalers), and although I expect it to be a GREAT SEAT because of his connections in the ticket office - I'm sure I'll be the only maroon shirt surrounded by a sea of red and black and white. That's okay - and I'll be sure to visit the BC bench before tipoff to wish our guys well and to tell them of my pride in them, etc.

And I will SOUND OFF all night. Go BC - beat NC State on their Senior Night - beat the Wolfpack - take the crowd right out of the game.

Most importantly - show up with intensity, having prepared well. Show up EARLY, right from the tip-off.

i think we play pretty well on the road. show up early, control the boards, sanders/trapani with good numbers, i think we pull this one out and cement our tournament berth.

morrina-

I was looking at the remaining schedules and I have to agree that we could easily sneak in there. However I think its actually in our best interest not get the bye. I cant really see us beating Clemson and FSU on a neutral court will be tough. For seeding purposes I think we would be better served with a first round game vs Ga Tech or UVA given the fact we will most likely be facing Clemson/FSU anyways.

by the way I know I'm totally over thinking everything

Is there a DC Gamewatch for the BC-NCSU game?

I agree with Morrina, BC has a really good shot at the bye and I think that would be great for the team to get it. I don't want to play Georgia Tech twice in a week, we already had enough trouble with them in Atlanta earlier this year. BC only gets the bye if they get to 10-6 and if they do that, there is no chance they miss the NCAA's. So losing in the second round of the ACC tourney to Clemson, for instance, would only impact our seeding. But that is getting way ahead of ourselves. Just get another top 100 win tonight and go from there.
