Halfway Home: The Hartford Preview

Terriers are back from their much-needed week off today, and they're on national TV! The question is, why?

We play Hartford today, and this year Hartford stinks so bad it's more like Fartford. The Hawks sit in last place at 2-6, while BU sits above everyone except Vermont right now. On paper, BU should dominate. But the guys can't rest on their laurels, whatever that means - this one smells like a trap game to me.

The Terriers are on a 4 game winning streak because of the effort they've been putting in every game. We know they are rested, but will they get off to a slow start? The effort level worries me - because while this team can be real good when they try hard, they can be real bad when they don't.

This also represents the halfway mark of the conference season. After this game, BU will have played every team at least once. If you told me at the beginning of the year they would have the chance to play for a record of 6-2, I would have been happy. If you told me that at the beginning of the conference season after we lost TyLos, I would have been ecstatic.
