Hockey News Votes DU's Jersey's "Worst In WCHA"

(above) The Hockey News judged DU's hockey sweaters to be the worst in the WCHA

The Hockey News ranked all the jerseys in college hockey and divided them by conference. Despite winning seven national championships, DU's jerseys came dead last, even finishing well behind WCHA upstart Bemidji State.

The Hockey News noted DU's jersey's were, "Too crowded for hockey; almost looks NASCAR."

As we've been saying for years, bring Boone back to the jersey, eliminate all the fluff and watch merchandise sales go through the roof.

The fans have spoken, the Hockey News has spoken, its time for DU to listen.

I would buy a Boone hockey jersey in two seconds.

Not to take away from the "put Boone on the jersey" stuff, but this ranking is total BS. I'm not exactly sure what they're ranking on, but Bemidji isn't even in the WCHA yet and they magically did away with Nebraska Omaha.

And come on...Michigan Tech's boring black jersey is better than ours? Right...

I agree Boone would look sweet on the front of that jersey.

UAA is commended for having a realistic bear. I'm curious how that is helpful. Maybe DU also needs a realistic bear.

Speaking of realistic bears...

THEY'RE THE FUCKING SEAWOLVES! Now what part of that said "bear" to anyone? Am I missing something? Has my knowledge of the English language completely left me?

Didn't think so...

The Hockey News should stick to reporting about the sport, not the fashion...

every jersey should have a realistic bear on it

I'd like to see DU return to a 70s era jersey with lots of red/yellow and less white. That would be cool IMO.

I think realistic gummi bears would be dope

I think CC should use the Jerry Garcia bears

Let's just remember this when all those paddywackers are standing inline at the souvineer stand in Detroit to get thier hands on a DU sweater

Twister said...

I don't think DU's sweater is the worst in the league, but it certainly could use some improvement. They are too benign and bland. I like the color scheme, but an old school Boone or Pioneer on the front would be an improvement. Even a cool "D" would be nice.

There's no way UAA has the 3rd best sweater. I like the Seawolf nickname a lot, but the animal on the front of their jerseys is hideous. Someone needs to come up with a better design than that for a wolf. And I think the Sioux have the best sweater, hands down.

Coach said...

At least now the jerseys have DU on the shoulders instead of that goofy bird/toupee which has nothing to do with a Pioneer.

A Boone jersey would kick ass.

FUCK BOONE said...

BOONE WILL NEVER BE BACK!!!

GET OVER IT, AND MOVE ON!

i dont think he swings that way said...

^wow, who pissed in your corn flakes this morning?

FUCK BOONE said...

Kiss My Ass Bitch!

I bet you have fantasies of banging Boone every night.

must be amateur hour on the internet. who invited this F*** Boone dipshit to the DU blog?

FUCK BOONE said...

Your mom invited me jerk, especially after I had a threesome with her and Boone.

I'm confused by your 3-some reference Mr. Fuck Boone. Does your name imply that you want to have sex with Boone and that you are a total homo that likes to play catcher and take it rough? Or, do you not like the Boone?

Please clarify.

(if you say something like "no, i just want to fuck your mom" i'll think that you are the funniest guy in the world).

and, p.s. boone already is back. you'll see him at games next year as a mascot and on many t-shirts.

Is that you Randy?

Boone will be back "officially" the minute some DU donor says, "Sure I'll donate Building X, but first..."

DU knows their position on Boone is so weak and they are so scared of pissing off more alumni, that they won't even write about why won't bring Boone back in the Alumni Magazine.

Anonymous said...

Dude, this blog of yours is a worthless waste of time. Why don't you do something more worthwhile with your time and energy?

Boone will not be back, period. Get over it. Do something more productive with your life.

The school has many more things to worry about than a mascot that will not come back.

This Blog has had 480,000 visits in just under four years. So somebody is reading this.

The same people who don't want Boone back at DU are the same people who have raised tuition every single freakin' year despite the economy.

We had 25 alums, parents and fans donate over $8,000 to build the Boone costume last year. They obviously care about the school and the mascot issue.

We are the Pioneers, we need a mascot that looks like a Pioneer. DU is virtually the only school in the country without a mascot. Is it because our Chancellor is too weak to stare down a couple of radical faculty members?

I'll keep writing the Blog and you just keep doing whatever it is that you do.

FU** Boone......thanks for the comedic relief, homeboy. You must be the class clown in your 4th grade class. You and anon @1:26 must be sharing the same knothole in the tree out back, based on the intellect of your postings.

In a world with 6 billion people, and a country with 300 million + people, having 120k visitors a year is no big deal. Don't let that get to your head when other sites get that a day.

Regarding the 25 alums and parents that financially supported $8,000 to a Boone costume, that's nothing.

This university has graduated THOUSANDS of alumni. If Boone was such a big deal to them, you would see tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars dedicated to this cause, by a larger number of alumni.

Yes, we are the Pioneers. We need to create a mascot that fulfills our school spirit, and is widely acceptable to everyone, while Boone is not.

1:51.....get off your high horse, you pompous twirp. This blog is for college hockey fans and DU fans. It's informative and well done, plus fun. If you can't appreciate that go take a flying leap.....DU doesn't need fans like you. And if you can't appreciate a grass roots effort to get a mascot put together you have some serious issues.

Hey guess what? CC Sucks, and NoDak swallows!

dggoddard said...

This is classic.

You want a mascot that is, "widely accepted by everybody."

Guess what? 87% wanted Boone on DU's online poll. The Clarion poll of students this past Spring was overwhelmingly pro-Boone.

You say this blog sucks. You hate Boone. I'll pay along, What mascot do YOU propose to represent a "Pioneer?"

Why would someone who dislikes this blog and Boone bother to read the articles, post comments, and reply to criticism?

From Howard Stern's movie "Private Parts...

Researcher: 'The average radio listener listens for eighteen minutes. The average Howard Stern fan listens for - are you ready for this? - an hour and twenty minutes.'

Pig Vomit: 'How can that be?'

Researcher: 'Answer most commonly given? "I want to see what he'll say next."'

Pig Vomit: 'Okay, fine. But what about the people who hate Stern?'

Researcher: 'Good point. The average Stern hater listens for two and a half hours a day.'

Pig Vomit: 'But if they hate him, why do they listen?'

Researcher: 'Most common answer? "I want to see what he'll say next."'

DG as a Sioux fan even though DU is our heated rival, I can say that I love the Boone mascott and wear my tee shirt with pride.

Goon said...

Lastly, any chance that Fuck Boone is either a Tiger or Gopher fan?

Anonymous said...

You guys need to stop being hussies for Boone.

puck swami said...

I always find it amazing how Boone's opponents have provided no visual alternative to Boone beyond their verbal criticism. At least DG and other readers of this site were able to fund, create and train a viable Mascot alternative to the Hawk, which is far more than any Boone opponent has done to date.

Swami-these are the same people who watch hockey at Magness and act like they are at a Golf tournament.
