BC had an open practice this past Saturday at Conte Forum. Fans were given a tour of the renovated lockers and provided food and drinks at the morning practice. The NCAA trophy was on display while York gave a speech to the fans after practice and players availed themselves to kids after practice for autographs on the concourse.

Hard to to tell how Jimmy Hayes will be during games as it is too early but he and the rest of the incoming class looked OK during the first practice.

Looking forward to the home opener against the Badgers and the banner raising. I drove to Milwaukee from Boston in 2006 when the Badgers won the NCAA. It was a tough drive back but the pain is lessen with the win this past April in Denver when they finally won one in quite a few tries lately.
