Baseball loses series opener to VT

It wasn't close Friday as Virginia Tech really took it to BC Baseball. It is the Hokies' tenth straight win over BC Baseball. With the loss, BC is now 1-9 in ACC play. As the season moves on, last year seems more like a fluke and not a step forward. Let's hope they start to turn things around the rest of the weekend.

Nice reference to BC - it makes you feel so proud. http://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/story/_/id/19045201/acc-make-100-million-men-basketball-teams-combined-ncaa-tourney-runs-last-three-years

And Leahy is smiling as he takes the check while thinking how he's spent near nothing compared to the others and he still manages to complain about the cost of sports.

BC sports need an exorcism. Aren't the Jesuits specialists in that?

@Nspolean Bonaparte: I did read about the basketball revenue for the previous three years going to the ACC. That is only for basketball. This does put a crimp in the motives behind the moves or lack thereof of Father Leahy.

Lacrosse - save ur $$$ on building baseball stadiums that are not large enough to host regionals. Either go first class or give it up . What , the neighborhood groups are placing more restrictions on BC's seating capacity - what a bunch of patsy's run Boston College !!!! Baseball in the northeast is a joke. Lacrosse !!!!Tell the neighborhood groups to get lost !!!!!

Not sure why it is baseball over lacrosse at BC. Doesn't make sense on any level.

I have been saying it for 2 years. BC is spending more on basketball and football than it ever has before. Compare who is on the coaching staffs(not the over paid HC's), their resumes and their salaries against staffs from prior to 2015. You have former head coaches as assistants on both teams and big name assistants with successful track records(loeffler, pasquoloni, spinelli, heath).

The problem is that they are not recruiting good competitive players.

The administration needs to hire better coaches who recruit players who want to win games in their sport. That is the problem. Is not financial support.

The "throw money at it" mentality has ruined Boston College athletics.

HOPEFULLY A NEW JESUIT PRESIDENT SOON
A SAD FOLLOW UP TO FATHER MONAN A GIANT "FOR BOSTON"
INTERESTING TO SEE A FEW TIGHT FISTED REACTIONARIES MOANING MONEY.

While I feel these head coaches salaries have gone absurd as a general proposition (and as a result they deserve very little patience and job security), Christian's overall comp of around $1.3MM probably puts him at the bottom of the ACC barrel by a fairly significant margin. We pay roughly at the same level as an Xavier or a Temple. Even Cooley at Providence gets paid substantially more at $1.7MM. Yes its probably more than we have paid and yes its absurd overall - but if we want to get an experienced/successful lower risk guy in there (as opposed to rolling the dice with a lesser candidate) - we need to swallow hard and compete. And if we don't like getting in the coaching $ arms race - then we need to get the hell out of the ACC and into a much lesser conference. It is what it is.

The only way to be this bad at sports is to consciously decide to be so.

Money is not the issue. People are.
