Football Alumni on Spaz
As fans and alumni we are all stakeholders in BC football. But the football Alumni are in a little more vested club. Most of them are closely identified with their time at BC even years later. And I am not just talking about the current guys playing in the NFL or Canada. Your typical BC football player is in a normal job and like all of us fans is hearing: "what happened to you guys?"
What's interesting is that despite their gripes and frustrations with the program, most are pretty loyal. They might be critical of a coach, player or admin at a cocktail party or in an email, but rarely will they go public. Thanks to social media, that is starting to change.
Matt Tennant has been one of the more vocal critics of Spaz. After slamming Spaz during the game on twitter, Tennant backtracked a bit today:
Sorry Eagle fans, last night my emotions obviously got the best of me.I care a lot about the program, and while the losses are not directly
Spaz's fault, we do all need to work together to help BC football get back to where it belongs.
Tennant shouldn't have to apologize. He wasn't the only one questioning the leadership and direction of the program. I hope other football alums start speaking out. We need a change and it will only happen if influential alumni take a stand.
