Buckle up, everybody: The Iona Preview

Tonight we arrive, as KW so eloquently put it, at Milepost 0. First game, beginning of the journey that is the 09-10 BU Terriers season.

The Terriers are not making it easy on themselves. Already, Scott Brittain and BJ Bailey are out with concussions. That means were going to have a VERY thin bench for the next few days. More importantly, our youngest Terrier is off to a bumpy and painful start, and any more concussions for one of our senior captains could bring his long-term health into question. I don't even know if Trent Green had 3 concussions. Be safe, Scotty.

On paper, BU should dominate Iona College tonight, right? We won in last year's Bracketbuster, we didn't graduate any of our big scorers, they lost 2 out of their top 3 scorers and they are picked 9th out of 10 in the MAAC. My expectations would normally be for a win of blowout proportions.

But then you account for the injuries on our side (Iona is a little banged up too, but not as bad). And that we're on the road. And it's our guys' first game under Coach Pat Chambers' new system. And they have a lot of tall men.

It'll be a good first test, and a nice tune-up for the GW home opener. And hopefully a win!

IIRC Brittain had a couple of concussions in high school, too. Don't quote me on that, though. That would explain the long recovery time being allotted him. Brains aren't to be messed with.

I love me some K-Dub.

Do they need to practice with football helmets? What the f*ck! I realize they need to hold practices, but not to a brute degree where they get injured.

We could beat Iona with Hot Dog and Jesus as our back court.

82 points? 38% shooting? 22 turnover? Wow, a lot of work needs to be done, this transitional period may produce more growing pains than we thought. At least GW sucks
