Rough night for BC fans. We lost in embarrassing fashion in football and in embarrassing fashion in basketball. Both programs are well beyond the point where these sorts of games should be happening. Both coaches look very overmatched and ill-equipped to handle their own, hand-picked rosters. You can't fire either coach yet, but you can fire the guy who hired them, Brad Bates.
Bates is practically gone, so firing him now might seem unnecessary. But I think you do it for one reason: send a message to the fans that BC cares and things will change. Firing someone to send a message might seem antiquated or not in BC's style, but who cares? Bates is and has been well paid for that type of risk.
As for the specifics of the football game, BC played ultra conservatively and not well and when things went bad there were no adjustments.
I will have second viewing thoughts and grades up late Sunday.
It wasn't a great night for BC Sports, but some of us commiserated on Periscope. I appreciate the interactions from you all. The more interactive the better. Thanks for the support.
