Criticism of Donahue's recruits and other links
While I've been gushing about Donahue's incoming recruiting class, others are not so enthusiastic. Even though the class is not full of McDonald's All Americans, as I've said, the real upside is that the guys come with defined skills sets. My only criticism is that the class is too big and will leave us with holes in the coming years.
As you've probably read, those incoming recruits will be playing Penn State in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.
Have you heard the rumors about potential basketball transfer Allen Huddleston? Don't read too much into them yet since he's shooting them down on Twitter.
In other Twitter news, former Eagle Brady Heslip has changed his physique at Baylor.
BC baseball wraps up their season against NC State this weekend. Although it has been very disappointing, I still have faith in Mike Gambino. Consensus is that Aoki left the cupboards bare and that Gambino's recruiting efforts are paying off.
This is from a few days, but definitely a worthwhile read on former BC basketball player and new grad Burnett Adams.
I've been a bit surprised by the reaction to the Jim O'Brien to Emerson story. Most are shocked that he is willing to coach in Division III. But those scratching their heads are overlooking how many bridges he has burned over the years. And although it was lifted, remember that JOB was banned by the NCAA for a few years. I obviously am not a big fan, but I hope for Emerson's sake it works out.
HD is definitely creeping onto the BC bandwagon. Now she sings Kuechly's praises here and here. She also sees good things ahead for Rettig. Now I wonder if BC doesn't perform well this fall, will she finally call out the staff?
