A Boston College sports blog capturing the highs and lows of being a BC fan living 1,000 miles from Chestnut Hill.
Daz recruited MAC level players and against UConn they were in their glory. If you throw those same players into the ACC pool, they cannot compete. An example of the huge difference a half-step in quickness makes. Daz appears to dislike Wade No Reps. Wonder who next year's 5th year QB transfer will be? Hayden Rettig?
It is pretty amazing how much of a difference that incremental speed makes. Hopefully the powers that be weren't enjoying the UConn game and thinking how much better it would be to be winning like that every weekend against the likes of Lehigh and Bucknell.
You forgot Lafayette where I taught ROTC. I think their stadium holds about 15k. The only time it's filled is when they play Lehigh.
There's a pretty good chance that BC will go bowling even with a loss to Wake Forest this weekend. Right now there are 64 bowl eligible teams. There are 16 more that would become bowl eligible with a win in their last game (including BC). Chances are that not all 16 are going to win. BC would among the first 5-7 teams to be invited because of the strong APR score. Most projections right now have 4 or so 5-7 teams going bowling, BC being one of them. Feels hollow but still good for the players (extra practice, another game for the seniors, etc.)
See you in Detroit against Army.
Since when is APR score a factor for the bowls?
What a travesty. The bowl system is out of control.
Only if there are not enough 6 win teams to fill all the bowl slots (80 slots this year) -- the tie-breaker of the 5-7 teams is the APR scores.
Don't waste your time...let's see some coaching and AD candidates. Apparently the women's basketball team is having another lousy year under one of Brad Bates' stellar hires. Has he done anything right besides not hiring Bob Diaco?
Question - if we wanted to refuse a bowl invite at 5-7, would the ACC make us go to collect the money?
A bowl at 5-7 will be great news for DAZ. Of the 5 wins, BC easily will have the least impressive win record and quite possibly the least deserving bowl team EVER. (sagaRin ranks OF OR 5 WINS: 52, 125, 144, 176, 202; avg 140)But it does not matter, our big bald-headed a-hole will scream from the roof about how he is building a championship team and things are really improving.. it will be insufferable to listen too.of course the lapdogs in the BOT and BB, will be an echo chamber for this propaganda...F them all!
I for one will not watch that game. This is simply putting lipstick on a very ugly pig.
Not even lipstick, Georgia... chapstick at best, given the crappy bowl it would certainly be.
When I was a young man, there were sixteen bowls. Now that meant something. The bowl system has since deteriorated to the point where 90 percent are meaningless scrimmages.
meanwhile, 1AA just released the bracket for their 24-team playoff:http://i.turner.ncaa.com/sites/default/files/external/gametool/brackets/football_fcs_2016.pdfremind me again why D1 can't do this? it would generate far more money and interest than the current iteration. i know, baby steps, yadda yadda yadda, hopefully we go to 8-soon and 16 soon after that. would love nothing more than whatever toilet bowl BC makes being done away with.
We went 9 and 2 in the early 70's I think, and didn't get a sniff at a bowl game.There weren't enough of them.
When we won 7-8 games per season we went to lousy bowls. Take the invite, assuming we get one, and use it for practice. I don't want any excuses from Addazio for how the team performs in 2017. Can hear him say "the admin sold him out" and "didn't give him a fair shake" etc etc if we are invited and don't go.Frankly, there is no fucking way we turn down a bowl invite nor should we. It is totally defeatist.Lunes noches futbol es horrible. Jesus
Knucklehead, in previous bowls, BC went to crappy bowls bowls because students and alumni attended in embarrassingly small numbers. A 6-6 UGA will always get a better bowls than a 9-3 BC.
What is your point? We went to crappy bowls when we were "good" and we will go to a crappy bowl this season, if invited. So the "level" of the bowl shouldn't be a criteria for not going.
My point is obvious. BCs wretched bowl attendance record has a profound influence on bowl selection committees. Short of winning the ACC, they will never select a team that leaves half the stadium empty. No Peach Bowl in BCs future.
