Expansion overload and other links
David Glenn -- who I like -- is the latest ACC guy to write about the impact of expansion on our new conference. Glenn talked to a representative of every ACC school and came away thinking the conference is secure. In the article I linked he explained his reasoning. I still think we are in the poker stage. I have no doubt every school has talked to a third party about joining the Big Ten or the SEC. (In BC's case it would probably have been the Big Ten.) I also doubt that any would turn down a chance to move because the windfall is so big. Until the ACC has either its own cable channel to rival the Big Ten or a megadeal from ESPN, we can be poached.
On the recruiting front, BC is in the mix for Paul Gaughan.
Hofstra should do everything in its power to hire Skinner. My guess is that Al would rather wait for a bigger job to open next year.
Ayla Brown is the latest young BC grad to get a network TV slot. She'll bring her youthful perspective to CBS's morning show.
BC baseball put their rough weekend behind them and beat Northeastern tonight.
