ACC Kickoff Day 2 Highlights

The second day of the ACC Kickoff focused on the coaches. Addazio did the rounds, including this sitdown with the ACC Network.

The assembled media picked BC to finish last in the division. I don't think anyone was surprised. After a 2-10 season, how can you not?

Addazio made positive impressions on the media.

Some writers are still surprised that our head coach is serving as his own recruiting coordinator.

I was surprised that the Globe has not written anything. Based on his tweets, it seems like Vega is there. Maybe I overestimated his excitement about returning to the BC beat.

The "honeymoon" goes on. So far, so good for Addazio.

The Globe has an article about recruiting today:

Unfortunately, since the Globe retreated behind its "paywall", it has become increasingly irrelevant to BC coverage.

It has become necessary to find alternatives to Globe pieces on BC Sports. I'm signing up for every BC-related page I can find on FaceBook, adding them to an interest list...also YouTube subscription for videos....following BC folks on Twitter.

Sadly, the days of Vega's columns making it to BC fans across the country are gone.

Too bad that the business actually needs to make money.

My Review
is a big, fat, outrageous scam. A few months ago I happened to place an order for a 20 page paper through their website. With “transparent” writer reviews and “affordable” prices, I thought I was making the best choice available. I was wrong. (A bit of background information: I am a senior in college who wanted a sample paper to help me complete my comps). When I first saw website, it didn’t seem horrible. They promised low prices and their writers seemed American or at least fluent in the English language (stupid me thinking that their writers’ names were real). But what was advertised as $7.50 per page quickly spiraled into $25 and $30 per page. On top of that, I realized that if you didn’t buy from a pricey writer, your paper was going to be complete shit. Like illegible. Like an F. So after I placed my order with a writer named God-knows-what in real life, I sat and waited for my paper. I had written a draft of my paper already and was going to use this to ease the process. What I got was COMPLETE GARBAGE. The paper was formatted incorrectly, it didn’t reach the page limit I PAID FOR, and didn’t even address the topics I requested. I think assumes that students who use their service are complete idiots. Some may be. But I am not. I ordered a paper with them because I care about my grades (who doesn’t when paying 50K a year for school) and wanted to IMPROVE my dissertation. So, what did they do when I called to ask for a partial refund? They told ME that nothing could be done. That the terms and conditions I agreed too were set in stone and that it was my fault for having selected the writer that I did.

Essentially they told me that they can take my money but not offer a shred of accountability when one of their employees fucks up. WOW. And then here’s the best part: when I called to speak with someone about giving a negative review of their service, they told me they would find out where I go to school and make sure I would always regret speaking poorly about them. Real professional. So, as an aspiring computer programmer, A REALLY PISSED OFF CUSTOMER, and someone who doesn’t give a flying fuck that these scam artists have my contact information, I created this website to inform students around the world that is a scam. I encourage fellow students who have been scammed by this company to give their reviews on as well. The more reviews the merrier.

As I dug a deeper review of past, I found some pretty scary things. Like for instance that their writers are almost all Pakistani (over 30% of their daily web traffic comes from the country) and use FAKE AMERICAN NAMES to pretend they are native English speakers. Isn’t it time this bullshit be investigated? I don’t care what you think about paper writing services (whether you believe they are ethical or not) but at least take down the companies that are pure scams like
