Stephanie McCaffrey brouhaha and other links
BC suspended women's soccer star Stephanie McCaffrey for he twitter jokes regarding Jerry Sandusky and Penn State. She will miss BC's NCAA tournament game against the Nittany Lions. I feel like this is a slight overreaction by BC. Clearly what McCaffrey did was stupid and in poor taste, but would she have been suspended if we were playing some program other than Penn State? Let's say BC was playing PSU in football and she made a Sandusky joke on twitter to her brother (Football's James McCaffery) and her team was playing Stanford in the NCAAs. Would she still be suspended? I hope BC wins the game so that McCaffrey's dumb jokes don't cost her teammates. Lesson to all college athletes: think before you tweet!
The men's soccer team is out of the NCAA Tournament after losing to Northeastern.
Erik Johnson got his first win as BC's women's basketball coach. He also added three new recruits.
I know some of you are aware of BC's relationship with JB Harvey, but this article shows how much the team has done for JB and his family.
