Cbeckout these new basketball uniforms

I guess I should have been an Oregon fan, because I keep finding myself getting excited about uniforms. Look at what basketball is going to wear against Providence Tuesday.

These look cool, are not over the top and relate to BC's past. What's not to like? I want a classic and consistent look for all our sports, but appreciate that the occasional special uniform gets players and fans excited.

It would be nice if BC could figure out a way to sell these uniforms in the bookstore/online. It is 2018 and the bookstore webpage is made for a dial up modem. I guess ACC money is in short supply.

^^^^^ Agreed. Our bookstore does a terrible job. Not that I don't own enough BC stuff already, and am embarrassed by the state of most of our teams, but I would own so much more if they did half of a decent job. Jarmond parades around wearing all sorts off cool, mostly throwback, stuff, and it isn't available anywhere.

When I was a student, 15 years ago, I had a cartoon and I wanted to create limited edition "game day" shirts that were a cartoon of the Baldwin and the opposing team's mascot fighting it out with a cheesy saying, like "Vanderbilt it, BC Sank it" kind of thing. They do them at all of the SEC schools. The bookstore shot me down because it's managed by a 3rd party and BC had little say. Athletics said I could do it on my own dime, but they wouldn't support it, and I'd have to license the likenesses. What a PITA.

It is outsourced.

Did we just hire the Rams WR coach as our new OC for football? Blauds reporting... guy is only 32 and was a QB at UMASS - might be the next Ryan Day (if only we could find guys like that?!?).

"Feb 26, 2018: Rams coach Sean McVay, preparing for his second season, filled voids on his staff by adding Liam Coen as assistant receivers coach and Matt Daniels as assistant special teams coach, the Rams announced Monday.

Coen, 32, replaces Zac Taylor, who was promoted to quarterbacks coach. Coen will work under receivers coach Eric Yarber.

Coen was hired as offensive coordinator at Holy Cross in December [2017] after two seasons as Maine's offensive coordinator. Coen played quarterback at Massachusetts. He also coached there, as well as at Brown and Rhode Island."

in other words, Coen had a deal with Holy Cross and dumped the Cross when a better offer came his way just 2 months later.

Why would you stick with the Los Angeles Rams when you can join the FATHER of their offense?

ObserverCollege said...

Schrute/Coen's resume probably said "Assistant Coach, Receivers" rather than "Assistant Receivers Coach". Can't blame Coach Addazio for failing to read all these newfangled titles carefully.

Observer, you will never sucker me again. Keep up the good work .

Smart move on Coen's part. He'll only be here a year anyway. If the offense does well, he takes the credit. If it goes poorly, he tells one and all that Addazio handcuffed him. Either way, he has NFL street cred as an assistant) assistant coach, and a Power5 resume line. Not a bad rise up from OC at HC.

BTW, I like the UMass move for Walt Hill, their new HC. As FSU OC he spends a year harvesting the fumes of the Jimbo Fisher offense, then he gets out before the Taggart stench drifts over to him. He's a hero if he wins at UMass, and can parlay that into a move to say Kansas when Les Miles falls apart.

If he loses, well, so what? It's UMass. He can go back to being an OC or move to an assistant (just assistant, not assistant-assistant) job in the NFL.

I said the Rams were in play two weeks ago.

I have voiced my frustration to Associate AD Jamie Di Loretto and even went so far as to send him my BC gear and some gear from other schools. (for example, the OU maroon hat, as an iconic and comfortable example of what should be done). He responded, but not constructively. I think our merchandise is awful. All I want are some cool hats maybe even the same ones as the baseball team wears, maybe a hockey polo, the ability to purchase some cool golf apparel, how about cool workout shirts with some slogans or references to our storied past, maybe some co-op with other manufacturers that don't compete with UA. Look at North Dakota in hockey, seeing their cool gear at the frozen fours is what opened my eyes. We need to redo aspect of our Athletic Department as it is substandard and doesn't reflect our fine University.

Christian pulling a Daz and not fouling at the end of regulation up 3. Now it’s overtime and they will lose.

Frustrating home OT loss.

Tim said...

Tough loss

knucklehead said...

Choke. Who paid Jokavik or whatever his name is not to play tonight. More undefended layups inside than I have ever seen.

TGS's "son" gets his first big win in life. Congratulations shithead.

Bravesbill said...

Seriously, how do you not foul? Saddled with idiots with no time management skills.

c'mon its a moral victory.
