Jarmond explains scheduling


Scheduling for Ohio State is very different from scheduling for BC. But there are a few lessons from this OSU piece that provide insight into how new BC AD Martin Jarmond thinks.

Jarmond tries to measure stability and predictability of opponents. But as he admits in the piece, this is somewhat difficult when you schedule games ten years out. (That's why I find BC's scheduling so cynical and dumb.) Like BC, he also tries to schedule opponents who have a geographic tie to our alumni base or recruiting needs.

Given their budgets and fanbase, scheduling for Ohio State is a bit different than what Jarmond will do at BC. I hope he continues to look for quality opponents and not just easy wins.

Really insightful, but doesn't mean we'll get more games with Notre Dame out of it. (and yes, this is me, the real Mod34b)

I'm sure our guys did pretty much the same thing - Washington D.C. and Staten Island must have been targeted as fertile recruiting territory when we looked at Howard and Wagner.

Maybe they thought they were scheduling basketball games.

I was ready to ask which "mod" this was. With a "fail safe" system in place, it is difficult to see how someone could get mod's Google password. Evidently, that is what happened.--------Scheduling is one thing. Xs and Os is another. Two coaches are on the hot seat. Let's see how the new AD does with that come June 30.

JBQ - No person hacked my account. the scrounge just set up a blogger account and called it mod34b. Blogger is a crappy system in that it provides no identity protection. Multiple people can use the same name. On other blogs, like BCI, each name is unique and cannot be duplicated.

it is time for a blog-vacation.

adieu.

This blog is like the old wild west - NO LAW AND ORDER.

We need Cleavon Little for sheriff!

EL MIZ said...

perhaps once Law & Order Trump is impeached for obstructing justice he can be the hallway monitor for Blogger dot com and make sure the "real" mod34b is the one posting. very sad to see mod's account "tapped" like this. sad! whoever it is - bad (or sick) guy!

Georgia Eagle said...

Miz, not a shred of evidence Trump did anything illegal or impeachable. you lefties suffer from TDS - Trump derangement syndrome.

mod34b said...

Ahh, just joshing. I'm back. Gonna Make ATL Great Again!

EL MIZ said...

GE - as a former Bloomberg and Lhota voter in NYC, not sure I qualify as 'lefty'. Anyone suffering from TDS seems to be the Failed Casino Operator's fanboys who are too blinded by the orange glow of his fake tan to realize what a con artist he is.

get your popcorn ready - can't wait for Mueller, Esq.'s investigation to start digging.

8:35 pm - the "real" mod?

knucklehead said...

Comey will clear it all up on Thursday. Fox News has been showing Comey speaking at the Cyber Security forum at BC all week.

Always comes back to the eagles.

Bill Bratton for FBI director if I am choosing.

What happens if Trump gets impeached? Pence gets elected. The Democrats have zero main stream candidates and no platform. They have gotten all the social/societal changes they have been pining for and have nothing to stand on now except trashing the country to make themselves look viable for next election cycle.

Interesting that Trump passes medical plan through congress and then gets this garbage dumped on him this week. Total political BS. They know he is not getting impeached they just want hamstring Trumps projects.

Ask Obama/FBI why when the Russians tipped us off about the Tsarnaev brothers why they didn't follow up? The Russians know that our government has been run by tools for the last 8 years.

The whole thing started because the "progressive" Democratic National Committee didn't have a secured network. Real progressive. Losers.

Georgia Eagle said...

The socialist Democrats, their stooges in the mainstream media, and El Miz still can't get over the fact that the Hildabeast lost.BUILD THE WALL !

EL MIZ said...

Knucklehead - agreed; the Dems are a disaster. Pence as POTUS would be a bigly upgrade over Trump, who is a walking, talking disaster and embarrassment.

Trump didn't "pass" anything - the House drafted a bill which the Senate now has to revise and pass with a much slimmer margin in terms of seats. we'll see what happens - hopefully they improve our country's medical care, lord knows we need it.

"this garbage dumped on him" was his own doing - remember? he fired comey, not the democrats or any other bogey man. he then contradicted himself, lied about it, and threw a temper tantrum because that's what 70 year old grandpaboys do - they complain about how unfair everything is and tweet. very sad!

Georgia Eagle - HRC was an awful candidate in 08 and an even worse one in 2016 - agreed. doesn't change the fact that The Don is a Charlatan with a capital C, and his Wall isn't getting built - sorry!

will the real Mod34B please stand up?

EL Miz,
Dork.

Georgia Eagle said...

Omg, Knucklehead and I on the same team. What's next, The Donald and Hildabeast sleeping together?

Napolean Bonaparte said...

Sorry to add to the fire. The current political situation is indeed pretty scary to everyone. Clinton was so bad that she managed to lose to Trump. I think that pretty much sums it up. I'd be surprised if anything comes out of this special prosecutor other than a lot of expenses to be absorbed by the taxpayer and a huge distraction. I pretty much support a number of Trump's initiatives more than I support his style. Its fine to be aggressive and to be a fighter in the interests of the people. Its not fine to act like an immature jerk, get in the gutter with every enemy and in the process get sidetracked from governing. Trump has some fine qualities - but maturity isn't one of them. I think Comey deserved to be fired as he forgot the role of the FBI and should have merely turned over the results of the bureau's work to the DOJ. He seems to have gotten wound up in his underwear for no good reason. Having said that - while Trump had every right to replace him - he did not have to humiliate the guy and terminate him with a public letter without even speaking to him. Just further proof that Trump is a jerk. Its apparent that he is more interested in maintaining his celebrity and being the focus of attention rather than governing. You would think some of his advisers would have politely told him to STFU and do your job. But he may not be able to listen to anyone. I realize the Democrats have one agenda - to undo a democratic election and bring Trump down at any and all costs to the
country and reestablish their power and agenda. Unfortunately, Trump is allowing them to do that because of his character and immaturity. Its anybody's guess as to where this is all heading.

Georgia Eagle said...

Nap,
I completely agree. Well written. I love and support Trump's agenda. But he really is a big mouth, narcissistic jerk. Trump's​ worse enemy is Trump.

Knucklehead said...

He couldn't just turn the results over to the department of Justice. Lynch is on a plane with Bill Clinton whose wife is running for president while under fbi investigation(she shouldn't be allowed to run while being investigated. Lynch shouldn't be speaking to Clinton in private. She should have been fired.).

Then the DOJ decides to go the special prosecutor route against trump when there is no crime committed? Trump does not communicate like a lawyer. You all have gotten too used to politically correct communication and the communication style of Clinton and Obama both of whom were lawyers and had to speak publicly in legal terms because of their activities while in office. Trump didn't do anything illegal so he doesn't need to parse and pause over every word he says. He is hiding something though, probably personal but not illegal.

Comey went public with the Clinton results last year because he had to. The DOJ is corrupt. Remember Eric Holder? he slithered away quietly. They allowed Lynch to slide as well . . . again she and Bill were discussing their grandchildren while waiting on a tarmac in separate private planes in Arizona? I call BS.

This sucks for people who wanted things done in America. Infrastructure, lower taxes, less crime, a push for better jobs, a moderation of entitlements and an aspirational american society again.

The whole thing is political. This all proves that nobody in their right mind runs for political office.

Napolean Bonaparte said...

Agree with a lot of what you say - still think Comey could have handled it better. Irrespective - you are indeed right about political office - especially President. Just look at who is choosing to run. The money required, the absurd level of scrutiny, the exhausting and overdone election process, a media run amok with analysts and advocates instead of objective news journalists, the unbelievable partisanship and lack of compromise, lack of term limits and professional politicians interested in government and themselves more than governing. All I can say is - thank God for sports.

CT said...

NapKnuckle...well said. You two have hit the nail squarely on the head. Truth be told, we know the Left has nothing to run on except identity politics and phony culture wars. However, the true adversary is undoubtedly the media. Off the cliff! They used to make an effort at hiding their bias, but now they are agenda driven hacks with visions of Woodward and Bernstein in their heads. It's sad, but fake Mod turns out to be more authentic than the loony, frothing at the mouth talking heads who have conveniently forgotten the outright and unabashed corruption of the last 8 yrs. But I can't say that because it makes me a racisthomophobexenophobemisogynist. Or a baseball fan. Anyway, now that mod is on a blogcation, maybe I can go more than 15 minutes without reading another firedaz post. Fake mod has done his community service. Probably from prison, but whatever.

Georgia Eagle said...

I've never seen liberal bias from the media this bad before. No attempt at objectivity
