Re: 11/19 | Holy Cross Crusaders | 1:00PM

College sports in general aren't big in this part of the country. Do you ever hear either of the Boston sports talk stations talk about college football or college basketball? If anything, college hockey is the most popular sport in New England. At least they do mention the Beanpot (well, Dale does).

Re: Who would you want to see start in place of EC due to his Injury?

I'm more interested in the trickle down effect. With either Jarvis or Stan starting, that leaves only 2 guards on the bench. So my trickle down effect question would be, how many minutes will Fatts get now?

Now that this over, I want to say just a couple of things. No charges were ever brought against the PC players who started all this shit in the first place. Also, sticking up for one of your coach's daughter is a good thing, in my opinion. Once again, I was not there. Just going by what I was told.
