ESPN defends ACC deal, big hockey donation and other links
Given the growing criticism of the new ACC deal, ESPN felt the need to defend and explain the specifics of the agreement. What's interesting is that Syracuse and Pitt triggered the opportunity to evaluate the deal but was not a contracted "out" of the old deal. Still my point from yesterday holds true: ESPN needs to keep the ACC at parity with the other conference.
An anonymous donor gave BC a $5 million donation to to turn the hockey head coach position into a endowed job. I think this shows BC Development team that success in sports can open up wallets. BC is losing money ever day that Spaz is in charge.
This preview of the football team is spot on, very candid and depressing.
The ACC and Big Ten announced the pairings for the Challenge. BC will face Pen State on Wednesday November 28th.
Baseball lost to Maine 9-4 on Monday. The final series of the season begins Thursday against Duke.
Spaz believes the new playoff needs to have conference winners.
