Battle against ALS continues with Comm Ave Classic

Last summer, the Ice Bucket Challenge went viral in part due to the support of the Boston College community. This summer a different BC alum is keeping the fight against ALS alive. Friday night a group of BC and BU Hockey Legends will square off in the 1st Annual Comm Ave Classic. The brainchild of former BC Hockey Captain Pat Mullane, the game is a fundraiser and a tribute to former BC Assistant SID Dick Kelley.

Obviously the best way you can join the fight is heading down to BU's Walter Brown Arena Friday night. The doors open at 6 PM and the puck drops at 7 PM. Tickets are $10 and all proceeds go to Compassionate Care ALS. If you cannot make it, donations are always a good idea. Of course you can always help a local ALS charity in your area.

Spygate and Deflategate were about the integrity of the game in the NFL. College football has similar issues. A Syracuse lawyer whose livelihood depends on the goodwill in his city is allowed to officiate games involving BC, Clemson and FSU. How can he be neutral? A serious ethical question has to be posed to Meyer of Ohio St. and Delaney the Big 10 Commissioner. Two years ago the Orange Bowl was played with OSU facing Clemson. The referee for the game was McGuin of the American Conference. Prior to being there he was a Big East official. Clemson won in spite of a totally one sided officiated game. Even ESPN noted how uneven the refereeing was. Twice as many calls against Clemson. Where is McGuin working the next year? He's in the Big 10. When conferences expand they sometimes let new members bring an officiating crew. Syracuse brings the local lawyer and it looks like Rutgers brought McGuin. The issue is when did the Big 10, OSU and Meyer know that they were going to hire that ref? Had he applied or been accepted prior to the Orange Bowl? If so he never should have done that game. Bowl refs are supposed to be neutral. If his hiring was already in the works a substantial breach of procedure occurred. The NCAA should get to the bottom of this. OSU and the Big 10 may have failed to disclose this blatant conflict of interest.
