The Greater New York Alumni Club and the national organization are planning a three hour pre-game reception and pep rally prior to the BU-Cornell matchup at Madison Square Garden on Nov. 24. The venue is the Club Bar & Grill inside The Garden and, while details are still being finalized, we’ve learned that University President Robert Brown will attend the event along with former Terriers and 1980 Olympic gold-medal winners, Mike Eruzione, David Silk and Jack O’Callahan--all BU Athletics Hall of Fame members. The office of the Dean of Student is planning a post-game party as well, to complete a very full—and hopefully turkey-free—day.
Advance to the Reading railroad
Four-year starting defenseman Kevin Schaeffer has signed with the Reading Royals, the Los Angeles Kings’ ECHL affiliate. Schaeffer had been drafted by the Nashville Predators in 2004. Ex-Terrier Justin Maiser also is on the Royals’ pre-season roster.
