Former BC Captain Tommy Cross takes New England Hockey Journal through his game day routine
Of course you do.
Norm Bazin made roughly $250K less than Jerry York for the same amount of Hockey East championships in the last five years. There will eventually need to be life after York, so just food for thought. And if that's not it for you, just laugh at the UMass football program and the fact that everybody kind of hates the hockey team.
BC took a 1-0 lead into the ninth, but the Hokies hit a walkoff homer off of Justin Dunn to sweep the Eagles and push the season to the brink heading into next week.
While acknowledging that Steve Addazio's teams have outperformed expectations during his two years at the helm of BC, the ESPN college football nation blog doesn't see the outlook as bright for the Eagles this year, ranking them tied for 11th in the ACC in their post-spring power rankings. The writer feels that BC will struggle offensively given the high degree of turnover and inexperience at QB and offensive line, which are valid concerns. Your thoughts?
Good news: according to SB Nation College Hockey's Jeff Cox, the USHL's Youngstown Phantoms have signed 2016-17, highly-touted BC commit Jacob Tortora to a tender. What does that mean and why is it good?
Essentially, this teams that Yougnstown is extremely confident Tortora will play in the USHL in 2015-16 because if they're wrong and Tortora decides to go play in major juniors in Canada, Youngstown wastes a first round pick in the Futures Draft. The NCAA does not consider the USHL a "pro" league and ad such, playing in it does not end NCAA eligibility.
That's not the case for players who jump to the Canadian Hockey League, a huge fear after Tortora was drafted in the first round by the OHL's Barrie Colts. While Tortora could still theoretically end up in Barrie, either this year in spite of the Youngstown contract, or next season in spite of the BC commitment, this news is a good sign that Tortora's plans at least for now keep him in the United States and NCAA-eligible.
