Terrier Hockey

Boston University's Hockey team has appeared in more NCAA Frozen Fours (Hockey's Final Four) than any other team (20 times in 27 tournament appearances). In all, BU has won 4 National Championships and 5 runner-up trophies since the NCAA hockey tournament began in 1948. The Terriers play in the Hockey East Conference, along with crosstown arch-rivals Boston College and Northeastern. The series with Boston College is known as the Green Line Rivalry or the Battle of Commonwealth Avenue. Under long-time coach and former player, Jack Parker, BU excelled in the 90's, winning four of ten Hockey East regular season titles (and sharing two more), the 1995 National Championship and 3 National runner-up trophies. Every year the four major Boston area schools, BU, BC, Northeastern and Harvard meet at the TD Banknorth Garden for a mid-season tournament called the Beanpot. The televised tourney is a local institution, and a fierce battle for bragging rights. As of 2006, the Terriers have won 27 of 54 beanpots and 10 of the last 12.

Dropping Football

Played annually until the 1960s, the Green Line Rivalry was once a fixture of college football.
Played annually until the 1960s, the Green Line Rivalry was once a fixture of college football.

Boston University terminated their money-losing DI-AA football program on Homecoming Weekend 1997 during a one-win season in the Atlantic 10. It was a controversial decision (made worse by the timing of the announcement). The decision was especially painful for alumni and students who felt a national university needed a football team to be credible as a "major" college. The players at the time were allowed to keep their 4-year scholarships or transfer without NCAA penalties. Since then, the University has used those football scholarships to expand and improve other men's and women's sports teams while adhering to the letter and spirit of Title IX (women typically make up more than 55% of BU's undergraduates). BU has also greatly improved facilities for hockey and the other sports, assuaging critics' concerns that football was dropped for mere penny-pinching or as part of a plan to neglect athletics.
