I don't have high hopes for an upset here. This team is disappointing. We have failed to make the kind of leap I hoped for. I never expected UConn to have the consistency of BU and BC. But Maine, UNH, PC and now even UMass have had very strong teams on occasion. I'd like to see us finish top 4-5 at least once. That should have been achievable by now.

I was going ask what everyone thought about this weekend, but this sums it up pretty nicely. As I fan I always have hope, but the realist in me has to agree with everything Hawk said.

At Conte tonight. The Huskies have been the better team so far. Two lucky bounces for BC. One shot from the corner that hit something and went in, second one went off Ish and took a chopper bounce off the ice. Huskies pushing the pace well and the more physical team.

Pathetic. 5-0. Why am I still watching? No way to make this game seem prettier than the butt kicking it is. Right now, we are a dog with fleas....and maybe mange.

Even the BC announcers wondered when the UCONN program will be ready to take the next step....they are even getting impatient....not sure how the UCONN players talent level is supposedly progressing but the team feels like they are regressing...I know..I know...the facilities...they are young...it takes time....toughest conference....the third jersey....yada yada...tired of the excuses....we are three games into Hockey East season and it feels like we are close to...."Wait Till Next Year" yet again....Wait till next year for what? So I can buy season tickets again when 50% of the XL center goes for free either as a student (if they go) or some promotion. Just beyond frustrated.

For those of you wondering his 5 year contract runs out after the 2020-2021 season. He's making about 330K per year.
What is the going rate for HE head coaches in terms of salary? I found Gendron from Maine getting about 215K. Bazin from UMass Lowell makes roughly 500K while Carvel at Amerhest made about 318K (Due for a raise I'd say).
Sneddon at VT is making about 290K.

and then what happened
There is zero defensive support. I’m not sure what someone saw with “lucky bounces” in the first period, but BC put the puck where Uconn’s defense in the zone wasn’t. 6-0 in hockey is like 42-0 in football. A blow out.

How do you regroup for a 330 tip off tomorrow
