“Podcast” Parker Previews 2006-2007 season

Jack Parker and Terrier radio announcer Bernie Corbett have teamed up for a 30-minute video preview of the new season. The interview, featuring highlights of last season and some pre-season practice video, can be seen as a podcast which is easily downloaded from the the BU athletics Web site. Click on the “subscribe link” and, if necessary, download the free itunes software.

Discussing the freshman class, Coach Parker compares the skill and flash of goalie Brett Bennett to that of Sean Fields and likens defenseman Brian Strait to Dan Spang, an All-American last season.

In addition to looking at the roles to be played by returning players and newcomers, Coach Parker discusses some of the out-of-conference games on the 2006-2007 schedule which includes trips to Michigan and Alaska (perhaps to open the season at the Nye Frontier Classic?--TBD) and the renewal of the BU-Cornell rivalry, beginning with a neutral ice matchup at Madison Square Garden the Saturday after Thanksgiving.

The interview also reveals that, during the current season’s December 2 game against Boston College at Agganis Arena, BU will honor the 1976-1977 squad, captained by Mike Eruzione and Rick Meagher, whose seniors won four consecutive ECAC tournament championships.
