Scandal rocks hockey east: druggiest college conference in the country?
According to what I imagine to be a ridiculously unscientific analysis The Daily Beast has proclaimed the druggiest college campuses in the country based on (I guess) drug arrests on campus and statewide rates of pot and cocaine usage. Here's the Hockey East rundown from the top 50 list:
Well I guess if you can't be the best rivalry in college hockey, there's no shame in shooting for the most drug-addled? Seriously I'm not surprised that the choir boys didn't make the list (didn't want to have to confess to it) and I'd have been mildly surprised if BU were on there. My main pleasure about this list is Northeastern being on there number 2 with a bullet. Big surprise though, right? I mean if my hockey team were that terrible on such a regular basis (even when they're having a "good" year) I'd prolly need the occasional bit of relief (read: blow) too. I just thought they did much more at UVM; I figured those hippies smoked enough grass to be 1-49 on the list, not just 18. Anyway, I think we can firmly conclude that Hockey East is the most drug-abusing conference in collegiate sports. Keep up the good work, mediocre schools that make up half of the conference!
As a side note I think the only reason Merrimack missed is because the French just smoke mad cigarettes. (Great work, da Costa!)
