"Hello, Cleveland" and other links
It looks like our game against Kent State might be played in Cleveland at the Browns Stadium. I don't think we'll pack the place, but there is a decent BC-contingent in Northeast Ohio.
Here is an article on future Eagle Evan Ravenel.
In the notes section of this article there is a little mention of Mike Mottau's return to Boston. Nice story of perseverance.
UVA is having trouble selling tickets for the Gator Bowl. This doesn't excuse our turnout for the ACCCG, but it will help during future bowl jockeying as UVA won't seem that much more attractive than BC for Florida bowls.
SMQ is producing a great series -- "Am I a bowl team?" We are a key mark on the resume of his latest entry.
Many of you probably read this earlier in the week, but I wanted to highlight the blog on bowl presidents' salaries. This process will never change because so many people are invested in the current system. There are 30 bowl committees who have created a cottage industry around these games. They create an artificial postseason that is essentially a kick back to college coaches and provides none of the pressure of a playoff. ESPN gets built in controversy all year and cheap programming during Christmas week. Ugh. I wish the university presidents (not Leahy specifically) would wake up and realize their ADs and coaches are pulling the wool over their eyes. There is a better system and billions of dollars to be had in a playoff.
