Paquette leaving for Loyola and other links

Jim Paquette, one of BC's key athletic fundraisers, is leaving the Heights to become the AD at Loyola. While this might be under the radar for many BC fans, this is a big deal. Paquette and Gene's other fund raisers have been a critical part of BC's success and now Gene will have to find a replacement who can bring in big dollars in a down economy. It will be interesting if Gene promotes from within or brings in an outsider. Speaking of revenue, this article lists the revenue of most of the major Athletic Departments.

Anyone have insight when the equipment room guys are going to start their equipment sale? It was running at the spring game last year, but I think that was toward the end of the sale.
