BC stays alive and other links

A comfortable BC lead fell apart this afternoon, but the guys rallied in what turned out to be an exciting extra innings affair. With the win and FSU's win later in the day, hope is still alive. The baseball team takes on the 'Noles next.


Eagle Action is holding a multipart interview with Steve Donahue. In part 1 he talks about the transition and his early recruiting efforts.


We haven't discussed Phil Steele much but BC players are scattered throughout his all ACC teams. Castonzo, Claiborne and Harris all made first team offense. Kuechly is the only one who made first team defense (Herzy is second team). Quigley also received first team honors.


Will Sean Duggan be BC's next Cincy recruit? His offer list is picking up.

ATL -- the link to the donahue interview gets one to only the first few sentences of the piece and an invitation to buy a subscription to eagle action.

can you publish a few key excerpts? I think you can under the fair use doctrine.

BC baseball has come a long way from giving scholarships to hockey stars who just happen to own a mitt.
Definitely in my plans to catch a few games next year.

Duggan: 6'4" 215 with the same coaching as Keuchly & Albright. I'll take him. Hopefully they sell him BC pretty hard.

cjack: Thanks so much for the link, thought all EA stuff was behind a paywall.

For those who enjoyed the Kostas Maglos era, looks like Coach D is looking to bring in European players to the team. Definitely an interesting twist I hadn't heard about and probably smart, when people think of American Universities, they think Boston because of Harvard/MIT/BU/BC, so a top foreign talent may be more excited about coming to Massachusetts than your average US high schooler.

Kudos to EA for some good content.

Did anyone notice that UConn' men's basketball program was cited for 8 violations and that Calhoun was cited for "failure to promote compliance"? Surprise, surprise, surprise!

RE:UCONN

Not surprised in the least; just more shady behavior from a second rate school.

The (basketball)players there are not required to attend class - what a joke!

They have always been a joke for people in the know.

Calhoun is a disgrace - but a well-paid disgraceful individual. No ethics for sure.

cjack -- muchos gracias for the link. Good article.

As Rob noted, I like that Coach D is presenting BC as one of the best option for EU players. Maybe we will get the next Serbian star!
