Lively takes his fight to Facebook

When Jack Dunn rebutted Steve Lively's criticisms of Gene, he included the following:
It has caused a number of people, including several of Steve’s former football teammates, to express concern for him and his judgment.


It seems that there are a growing number of BC Football Alumni supporting Lively's efforts. He has a private, football Alumni group on Facebook that currently has 120 members and growing. Most of the members are players from the '80s and '90s.


Although Facebook groups are a dime a dozen, I think Lively is using the right approach. He's got select membership who understand BC football's history and potential. Ultimately this will come down to wins, losses and money. If Lively's group is organized and well funded, BC will have to listen. I also think that using former players as a sounding board will only help his message. At times his letters have missed their target or got bogged down in personal minutia with Gene. As a group they are much more likely to deliver effective communication.


I don't know if Lively will open the group to non-football players, but even without fans, he has momentum.

ATL, you are much to kind to Lively: "At times his letters have missed their target or got bogged down in personal minutia with Gene."

In truth, Lively is highly inarticulate, and has no clue about how to be a successful advocate for any cause.

Maybe the FB football group will provide Lively with some needed guidance.

Where is CJ Jones on the depth chart? Is he still hurt?

manny asprilla not on the depth chart? he played really well towards the end of last season.

Surprised ALJ is the back up PR??

KPL is the back up long snapper??

our "fullback" Naples is a TE?? will Martin have multi-back sets?

Surprised Quinn is not a starter. very odd. Nice to See Ramsey back. DL could be decent. Got a 6-8 DE. he should bat down a few balls!

OL looks pretty solid too.

Surprised our prized TE prospect Miller is a starting WR. We have a TRUE TRUE green frosh Joel Z as #2 WR. kid must have some promise.

Surprised Bordner is still #2 QB, what about suntrup?

CJ?? Manny??? hurt??? Andre Willimas?

Duggan replacing Kuechly...seems kinda light...

Hope i'm wrong but it is real hard to get excited about that OLine. Cleary's the only one I have any real faith in.

Zoungrana won't be a "true true green frosh" since he's already on campus and participating in spring ball. More like half a redshirt freshman.

Ry - Joel Z is green because he just showed up at BC and walked right onto the depth chart. Surprising, but there are several injuries at WR too. Might just be a place holder.

I think the OLine will be decent. But we will wait and see as to the Ol and the whole crew.

We of course can not forget the "anti-magic" Spaz brings to the party. Maybe Martin will be the Spaz antidote -- I hope!

Ryan, picture from that Facebook group is of the 2006 BYU game:

Know this because I have this picture hanging in my office...got it as a gift, but believe you can buy it at the bookstore. The picture on the FB page has been photo-shopped to remove players/refs/coaches.

We've long been inspired by urban art and have finally created a collection that pays homage to this secret addiction of ours!
