South Bend blogger takes shot at BC and other links

In Ivan Maisel's new book, he calls BC underrated. This South Bend blogger disagrees. I am surprised Kelly even took the time to write about BC since most ND fans don't care about us and surely don't consider us a rival. (Thanks to Brian for the link.)

Here is a look at Georgia Tech. Same narrative as before: "It will take time for Tech to adjust to Johnson's scheme."

A Texas QB BC targeted is headed to Nebraska.

Here is ESPN's preview of the football team.

The Red Zone Report also produced a BC preview. (Thanks to Nick for the link.)

The Hancock hat mystery is solved and it is not our Eagle:

Mr. Smith’s hat is a dingy gray with maroon stripes, bearing an embroidered eagle in attack mode. Some have questioned whether the aggressive bird was a nod to those logos of American Eagle Outfitters, American Living at J. C. Penney, Boston College or Anheuser-Busch, but it was actually the creation of Louise Mingenbach, a veteran costume designer.

Haven't read the book yet, but Kelly mentions that BC is the #1 most underrated program.

Finally .... #1 in something!

The ND guy has a point. Don't know if I'll ever get over Frank Leahy's betrayal of 67 FRIGGIN YEARS AGO !

I mean, I am sure my parents, then pre-teen children of Irish immigrants living in NYC must have been furious with him. So, by genetics, now my cross to bear.

I realize it was his alma mater, but why would Leahy choose rural Indiana over Irish dominated Boston in 1940's ? He was running from something. Died in Portland - blech. Good riddance, psycho.

I don't see TOB enjoying the same legacy as Leahy. TOB is already semi-retired and will be out or on the way out before the end of next season.

Coach O'Brien's first 5 years were

1997 4-7-0
1998 4-7-0
1999 8-4-0
2000 7-5-0
2001 8-4-0

Total 31-27-0

His 2nd 5 years were

2002 9-4-0
2003 8-5-0
2004 9-3-0
2005 9-3-0
2006 9-3-0
(Spaziani coached the bowl game)

Total 44-18-0

I think we have to look at the "body of work" turned in by these coaches. Perhaps 5 year windows are fair.

Jack: Don't post complete articles from ESPN or anyone else. I can quote, but I have to honor copyrights.
