The Perfect Viewing Suggestion

My perfect viewing suggestion for BU Basketball game, off the top of my head, would be to fill a camelback with Southern Comfort, show up to the game an hour early, get front row floor seats (if the game is at Agganis), and scream your lungs out until the opposing team walks off the court depressed and embarrassed from a severe beating. But what if the game is away? Very far away, say at #1 Duke?

This suggestion comes straight from the mouth of Kevin Gardner, co-captain and starting forward(I can only assume). While running into KG at Becketts' off-da-hook reopening night, I told him good luck against Duke. He said the best way to enjoy the game is to get a keg, have all your friends over, get blasted, and watch the game on ESPN2 (Nov. 14th, 7:30). Personally, I have to agree with him. We here at BU Hoops :: Doggy Style have very high hopes for this game, but no one is speaking about what we're pretty sure will happen. Frankly, the best way to deal with this is just have some beers and enjoy the game, whether we win or lose.

13 Days.

KG must have been kidding around because he would NEVER suggest our students grab a keg.

The Duke loss will come and hopefully pass before the real season starts on Nov. 22nd at the Agganis Arena. The Michigan game will be a real barometer of this team's talent. While Duke plays at level that no true fan would expect of the Terriers, Michigan can be beat. In fact, we've beat them in Ann Arbor the last two seasons. Michigan will come to Boston seeking revenge and representing the Big Ten. It would be an enormous victory for the Terriers (and the American East Conference) if they can win three straight against the Big Ten 's Wolverines. It will also be huge for the Terrier fans and this community if the arena is packed and rockin. BC (I'm sorry I had to speak of them in this blog) has (Big East) and will continue (ACC) to bring "big time" hoops to the city, but people don't care. Maybe I'm crazy, but I think if BU played at the same level as BC, this city/community would go nuts.

Good luck with the blog - I love it and I hope to see you all on the 22nd at the Arena.

I believe KG was referring to a keg of apple cider, which can be purchased from your local orchard/cider mill.

You're right about the Duke game... but it's still exciting to see the team on national TV playing #1 in the nation. Michigan will be the real test, as you said, but they are a much better team this year than the last two times we played them - they're probably a Top 25-caliber team. If we can beat them in Agganis before a packed house, I think that qualifies as a genuine court-storming victory.

Agreed. I'll meet you at Center Court.

Go Terriers!!

I'm very excited about the Duke game. You know that Wolffie will have these guys ready defensively but do they have the offensive guns to make the game respectable? I have heard real good things about Corey Hassan. Heard he came up big in the scrimmage agaisnt Sacred Heart. He maybe te consistent offense this teams been missing in the past.

Exactly, that's the question. We know Hassan can shoot, but are his nerves up to it? And is Macon just a passer, or can he score as well?

Also, it's great to hear that about the Sacred Heart scrimmage. We're waiting to get some more dirt on that game before posting on it.
