[QUOTE]i agree that the attendance wasnt great, but i mean come on. as a BC student, HOW DO YOU EXPECT US TO GET ALL THE WAY TO WORCESTER AND BACK FOR AN 8PM SUNDAY NIGHT GAME?? atrocious scheduling. i wouldve loved to go, but school does come first. know many students who wouldve loved to go. we got shafted tmathuna: what do you mean that BC gets great local support? Newton/Boston fights us everytime we plan to build anything on campus. dont even get me started on tailgating. the neighbors screw us over so bad on that, its sad how it has a negative effect on the gameday experience. WEEI sucks. i have very little respect for the globe either. do the minimum in covering BC sports; the only top-tier college athletic program in boston area. i have respect for the other college hockey programs around here, BC has no business in having more coverage than the others in that area (probably an exception as of late because of the frozen four appearances). but i mean, come on! at least get some sort of Globe run blog for BC football and BBall!! yeah, they suck now, but they wont forever

I appreciate the spirit but disagree with some of these premises.
The Globe supports BC better than it needs to. The school gets a beat reporter for all major sports, and in general gets better column size and placement than any other institution around...this as confirmed by the many haters on forums.
As for students getting to the game, Sunday night may have been a challenge due to Monday classes, but what of 4pm on a Saturday, a game known about all week? Unless things have changed, many students do have vehicles. And if BC does nothing to help transport students back and forth to Worcester, then you're right, the athletic and development depts should be held accountable. What's the point of having a local placement in the regionals if nobody shows up?
This is not taking pressure of the alumni assoc for not promoting and pushing for attendance locally, inexcusable.
