Make Monday's Doubleheader a 'thing'

Boston's latest snow storm forced BC to reschedule both the Men's and Women's Basketball games to Monday. The Men's game against Miami will start at 3:00 pm and the Women's game will start 30 minutes after the Men's game ends. The key aspect of the unique event is that admission is free! I understand that many fans won't be able to make it. However, students don't have the same excuses. This means that ALL STUDENTS SHOULD GO TO THE GAMES!!! There is no real reason not to go. "The teams stinks." So what? These are games they can win. They need your support. Maybe a little bit of fan support can push them over the top. "But it's cold. I can't get there." Most of you don't live that far from Conte. Even if you live off campus or Newton, you can make it. Just trudge through the snow. It will be warm in the building. "I have other things to do." What else do you really have to do that can't be done later? As I have said in the past, none of you really realize what busy is. It won't be the same after graduation. Take advantage of these moments now!

But it is not enough to just go to the games. You all have phones. Take pictures. Tweet it. Put it on Facebook. On Instagram. Or whatever else you might do. Get this trending. Make going to BC basketball games fun again. Make it a thing. Monday will be a slow news day and a slow sports day. If everyone in Conte starts cheering and making noise and taking pictures, it will be a game and moment you won't forget.

I don't know if the team will come through, but you can. Get there, make noise and have fun.

These two teams have combined ACC records of 4-18. I wouldn't blame anyone for finding some other way to spend the afternoon.

Make that 4-19, as the men's team blows a 7 point lead in the second half to lose in OT.

Combined 4-19 in the ACC is pitiful. What's more, it has been going on for way too long, and there's no end in sight.

Our school has let us down, and getting fans back won't happen until we see a commitment to compete and to win.

I appreciate that there is much more effort this year, but I am sick to death of blown leads and close losses.

With the long Presidents Day weekend, we made the trip up for the game. Understandably, attendance was low...but there were NO students at the game. No band, no Baldwin and maybe half the cheerleading squad. I know some kids may have had class, but fewer than 100 students??? The program is in disarray, but when those on campus don't care, that's a bigger problem.
