Boston University Students Swear At Hockey Games

The BU Administration has cracked down on the BU Student Section for the upcoming season. University officials said yes that they have a "new policy" forbidding the use of swear words at BU sports events, along with racist and sexist comments (Doesn't this imply that the "Old Policy" endorsed the use of profanity, racist cheers & sexist comments). The penalty is expulsion from the sporting event, and it has enraged some students who say that cursing is practically tradition.

In honor of the BU Students LetsGoDU has obtained two video clips from YouTube.com of the "Good Old Days." The 2nd video is an ESPN Instant Classic as the BU fans get the whole "train" involved on their way home from the game.

The Western fans need to step it up. We cant allow the BU fans to be the crudest in the country.

You have to love BU fans. BC owns them in most aspects of life, hence the pathetic "Beanpot" grasp. The neat thing about that video is when they chant it together, their Middle Eastern accents are barely audible.

Collar Up.

truthfully, this is needed. the cursing increased over my time there in section 8, though the section "leaders" still maintained some control (if you will) over everyone. when things moved to agganis, however, the student section got louder and less-organized. as a result, it was only a matter of time until they got the crackdown. though, chanting "f you boyle" and other such things during regionals last year and being heard on national tv didn't help, either ...

THAT'S the cheer?

Good lord, that NEEDS to go. It isn't even INTELLIGENT.

Aren't kids at BU supposed to be, like... smart?

dggoddard is right we are lagging way behind the BU boys and girls.

...Not to mention all the free National "Pub" BU students are getting. Heck, BU College Hockey fans even made it onto Houston drive time talk radio.

Whoa whoa whoa. runningwiththedogs.

Who said BU students were smart?!?! I hope a BU student didn't tell you that and then you just believed it.

It's widely known that BU is a good school but not a great school and is full of very smart kids from another country or semi-intelligent kids from America that couldn't get into BC.

Oh, BTW, I'm President George Bush!
