Re: ESPN Calls Out Mass Youth Hockey during National Championship Game


5-6 years ago when UMass hockey was really terrible and before the coaching change the lack of Mass kids was always a big DBoard topic. And the fact the old regime had scouts all over Europe, Canada and the eastern bloc looking for players when many Mass kids not only could have helped, but their parents had been supporting the school for decades by paying taxes in state. UMN for years had a policy that they could only roster one non-Minnesotan...ONE! Really the Mass hockey kids dream of playing in and winning the Beanpot and UMass isn\\\'t part of that.

I don\\\'t think I\\\'d call BC/BU/NU are \\\'all far better academic institutions.\\\' Yeah on average but the difference is getting smaller than old timers think.
How do you know someone went to BC/BU/NU... They told you!
