There are 5 comments on Jack Eichel to Play Next Season for Buffalo Sabres

  1. I don’t understand the (CGS’16) designation. I know that CGS means College of General Studies but the 16 is exactly what? Date of Graduate, Date of Admission, Date of Anticipated Graduation?

    1. It means that he would have competed CGS after the 2015-2016 academic year. CGS is a non-degree granting program, therefore his college graduation year would be 2018.

  2. Congrats to this talented young man — brought some great energy to campus and certainly deserves a shot at the pros. Now, is there any chance his remaining scholarship funds can go to deserving, underrepresented students who would love to actually earn a BU degree?

  3. Happy for him, yet just another example of how athletes use colleges to further their own ultimate cause. And yet………there is a strong movement, supported by the courts, to PAY college athletes for playing? Yes, I know athletes bring in a great deal of money to the university. I also know how much tuition, room, & board are at BU and every other major academic institution around the US. They ARE getting paid- it’s called a full ride. I do know that the overwhelming majority of college athletes get their degrees. I cannot, however, justify paying “students” to play sports at a college.
