  1. BU is representing strong and Proud!! Way to go Coach Quinn. I KNOW those trolls from last year are HATING this since they were mostly BC trolls. But to those BU fans that waivered in that first year, and you know who you are…I sure hope this shows you what Quinn and Co can accomplish when he has HIS players. I can’t wait to see the team next year. This year is far from over…we have an amazingly talented crew this year and with a little luck and a lotta skill and heart. let’s shoot for the stars!!
    GO BU!!!

  2. I agree Allison. It’s too bad that those trolls get away with talking all that crap and then can just fade away this year and not be held accountable on this site. I will be coming up to Boston tomorrow and can’t wait to see the Terriers play.

  3. Yes Allison – for sure. I hope to get to Boston before 4pm and will be staying at the Hyatt Regency on Memorial Drive (the official hotel of this BU Hockey fan) for the weekend. I hear that Friends of Hockey will be having a pre-game party if we play on Saturday.

  4. Yea, this is great. Can’t wait for tonight. I expect we will lose many players this year and it would seem that Quinn knew this as he has had a great group of recruits at the ready. He was a great choice for coach.
