BC might debut on ACC Network

The ACC Network is still another year away, but BC could find out soon if they will play the first football game on the network. Half the conference can't play on the network that weekend in 2019 because they've already booked a non-conference game. BC hasn't locked in a game yet making them a likely candidate.

In my opinion being the first game -- or one of the first -- is a good thing. BC can hype it up to recruits and earn some goodwill with the schedulers at ESPN.

The downside is we don't know what the carriage issues will be like then. I would hate for BC fans to not be able to see the game due to a fight between cable companies and the conference. Hopefully there is some online option for those who won't have the ACC Network in 2019.

This is great news for BC! :) I credit new AD Jarmond for this. Exposure for BC is good. I'm not worried about the downside.

Will the real mod please stand up. ATL is definitely a hands-off style leader.

All that stuff aside, I'd be totally stoked if BC was the first game on the ACC network. I don't believe in this age of streaming we'd get shut out of seeing the game no matter what the cable situation is.

no one will care about who's playing the first game on a network that will be channel 10010

raycom sports network isn't good enough? The Bojangles ads are fitting for the Boston market.

I guess we shouldn't disparage ATL. He's merely following Leahy's cues. Perhaps, it's his way to curry favor with the administration like the authors at BCI.

Piss-poor way to manage a blog when he can't even police the fakes m

Could the second mod34b have been a roommate of the original?

I'm sorry ATL, I was all full of anger. It's just because I love this blog so much I could.... oh I don't know what I could do!

I think this blog has lived beyond its useful life.
