'Cuse facilities, Hockey loss, Bollman update and other links
Syracuse announced their plans to build an indoor practice facility. We all owe them a debt of thanks, because now this might finally light a fire under the BC administration for us to build one. If Syracuse can do it, so can we. Raising the money is not an issue. Finding a location is an issue but can be worked around. The issue is if our new AD and the rest of the University are willing to fight for this. I know people don't like the arms race aspect of big time sports, but we will be playing with one hand tied behind our back if we don't keep investing and upgrading our facilities.

Remember when Dan Monteroso decommitted to sign with Purdue? At the time he was following former BC coach Jim Bollman. I wonder if Monteroso is second guessing himself now that Bollman is off to Michigan State. Bollman is just another reminder how mercenary the coaching business is and BC as an institution should not forget that. We -- the fans and the school leaders -- always place too much emphasis on a coach's desire to be at BC, when the coaches are just looking for the best job for themselves.
BC target Sam Hubbard is now getting Big Ten interest.
