With Beanpot looming, women’s hockey continues hot streak

Brian Durocher, the head coach of the Boston University women’s hockey team, often preaches how it’s essential to respect one’s opponent and not look too far down the road. That’s exactly what BU (17-9-2, 14-4-2 Hockey East) did in Saturday’s 6-2 win over Merrimack College, but a far grander occasion still weighed on the minds of players and coaches alike, […]

Indirect Kick: Football kickers are people too

Indirect Kick: Football kickers are people too

While watching the AFC Championship Game last weekend, I experienced a rollercoaster of emotions. Things were looking up after Steven Jackson scored, but then the unthinkable happened.
