Fire Jim Christian

This is my final post of 2018, so I might as well have it deal with the biggest issue of 2019.

BC Basketball lost to Hartford in overtime. We were without Mitchell. Tabbs was limited and Chatman rusty. Those are just excuses though, because there is no reason this BC team should be losing to that Hartford team. It's coaching. The lack of depth. The lack of a consistent defensive system. The curious ingame decisions. That's all on Jim Christian. Too often he has more talent and yet his team plays down to his opponent. If they played up to their opponent more often, than we could discuss saving him. But they don't. They are too often flat and without direction. This is not working and it is on the coaching. There is some talent and there are some coaching moments worthy of praise, but not enough of either to compete in the ACC.

This post might look foolish in a month. BC might get healthy and start rattling off impressive wins. I doubt it though. I don't think Christian has it in him to turn this around.

Martin Jarmond used his goodwill to save Addazio despite a frustrated fanbase. He can ask for patience if Christian has another losing ACC season and we are an NIT bubble team, but why waste everyone's time and money. This is not working.

And a 4-0 hockey debacle outdoors in South Bend. Not a good look for men’s sports as 2018 comes to a close.

Georgia Eagle said...

Funny, not once has ATL called for Dazoshit's head. Not once. Jarmond is in over his head. No leadership, no balls. Our entire sports program is collapsing.

Bravesbill said...

I’d rather get rid of Daz than Christian at this point. Christian has at least shown some flashes, Daz not so much.

Big Jack Krack said...

Jarmond extended Christian as well, and he's good for 4 more years, counting this one.

Good work if you can get it.

Addazio and Christian - 4 MORE YEARS, 4 MORE YEARS!

Big Jack Krack said...

Basic game coaching would save these guys.

As they say in thoroughbred horse racing "Show me the past performance."

Napolean Bonaparte said...

They are both subpar. BC is locked into mediocrity. It all starts at the top. If Jarmond wants a long prosperous career he better start riding herd on these highly paid coaches - he's there boss not their buddy.

Teddy Errico said...

Both Daz and JC suck and need to go. But to say JC has done a better job? At least BC Football was ranked. BC Hoops is an embarrassment. This difference between the two is only that Daz beats his cupcakes. I cancelled my donation to the Flynn Fund. We are BC We are an embarrassment.

mod34b said...

Mouse extended XC 8 months ago.

Fire XC now? Not a likely Mouse move. .

Fire Daz first.

mod34b said...

.... who was extended 3 weeks ago. ...... not happening either

Georgia Eagle said...

My New Year's resolution- not to give a dime to BC until they commit to a winning sports program, starting with the termination of Dazoshit and Christian piss.

Big Jack Krack said...

The biggest heartbreak is that this isn't fun anymore.

Edward Griffith said...

Hartford is supposed to challenge Vermont for first in their conference . We will be very
fortunate to finish two above last place. NIT a major STRETCH.
Martin needs to match his great find in women's bb with one in mens.
Jim has a major recruiting problem. Ky Bowman could start for any team in the
country. Tabbs may eventually prove he could be anyone in the ACC 's sixth man. The remainder
could not start for Hartford.
Jared ,Danya and Malcolm would solve recruiting problem and have us steadily in
the 4-6 range ACC.
GOOD LUCK to coach Mac and her ladies

You have to wonder if Jarmond is just a lame-duck OC and a figure head for either the board or Father Leahy.

He doesn't seem particularly interested in facing facts or addressing the concerns of the fans, students, and alumni that support the program. He seems to only invest his time in appearances where they are scripted or the questions will be non-threatening. It's safe to assume that he's only bending knee to big money donors who don't care about performance.

Jarmond has only addressed the Daz situation with a weak press release. He's never really acknowledged the debacle at the Syracuse game with operations and concessions. He's hoped the Texas A&M thing would go away, but it isn't.

Now he's faced with a lame-duck football coach who can't find anyone to take his Offensive Coordinator job because he insists on running his own offense, which has shown it does not work, and everyone knows he is a lame-duck. He's saddled with a men's basketball coach who he just gave an extension to, that can't inspire his team or coach them to any sort of competitive being. He has a women's soccer coach running for the hills, and her best players fleeing campus.

Add to that that our legendary men's ice hockey coach is seemingly on his last legs, with the team being non-competitive the last few seasons, and continuing a trend to being irrelevant this season. With other schools throwing money at Ice Hockey programs in our backyard, we are complacent, at best, if not falling off of a cliff. You can't fire Jerry, and Jerry has made no mention of retiring or stepping down, and Jarmond needs to handle that with kids' gloves.

Really... what has Jarmond actually accomplished at this point? The practice facility wasn't him. GameDay wasn't all him. The only thing I can think of that he can claim credit for is these debacles and PR Nightmares.

TGS said...

The posters here need to wake up. As I’ve written a million times, this is not the BC you grew up loving.
It is now an ACC money grubbing operation more concerned with being properly PC and liberal enough to keep pansies like Khead happy.
I haven’t given a dime in over ten years. Wake up and move on!
Believing in BC now is equivalent to sentimentally holding onto a stock that you inherited from your grandfather even though the management team is in jail and the price has fallen to ten cents.
Nothing will change when HUGE money like this is at stake.

Georgia Eagle said...

But Jarmond knows how to party. What more could you possibly want from him, 1331?

Unknown said...

They both need to go, but it is not going to happen, given extensions. Depressing, though things were clear when a no-name like Jarmond was hired. Let’s face it, a competitive athletic program is not one of Fr Leahy’s goals for BC; how else do you explain Flipshit, Spazshit, Dazzoshit and Christianshit?

dixieagle said...

If it is indeed all about ACC money-grubbing, shouldn't they understand that there would likely be even more $$$ to grub if they had consistently competitive teams?

Flexman said...

Daz, Christian and Jarmond all need to be shown the door. Right now they are just guys collecting a paycheck. No vision or plan is in place to bring the football and basketball programs up to Division 1 standards. My Lord VT now has a ranked basketball team. Spinning our wheels with these clowns.

Georgia Eagle said...

Dixie, stop making sense. Shame on you.

mod34b said...

Eagle1331. Good post. Jarmond has never discussed any even mildly uncomfortable issue publicly, takes no partial or full responsibility and offers no solutions.

Was he really unaware of widespread disgust with Daz and just ignored it. (Despite his bs Twitter phrase #WeHeardYou)

Instead, he takes the easy way out with undeserved extensions hoping for a miracle.

Jarmond brought booze to Alumni and luvs to party. Decent cheerleader too. Kind of embarrassing that this is his mark so far.

He is just not up to the job. No gravitas to push an agenda

————————————————

Ps. What the story with Women’s soccer coach and players leaving?

Knucklehead said...

TGS balls dudes.

TheFive said...

This is an embarrassing post, Bill. The team and program are on the upswing, with a few bad habits (like playing down to bad non-conference teams).

On the upside, we have a future all-everything freshman at PG, Ky at SG, and a decent front court. This team should be right on the tournament bubble and has the talent to hang in the ACC. And you shouldn’t state otherwise until ... hell, a few conference games have been played.

Jim Christian is a good man who runs a clean program on the upswing and treats everyone around him right. See how the season plays out.

In the meantime, maybe clean up your comment section to eliminate the clowns who keep referring to our promising AD as a “mouse” who “parties” and espouse viewpoints more befitting of the 19th century than the 21st.

Georgia Eagle said...

The PC police are back. If our comments aren't politically correct liberal speech they should be censored.
Move over, Joey. You have a fellow comrade commissar.

CvegasEagle said...

TheFive is delusional. We arent making NIT buddy

Georgia Eagle said...

He is indeed. Just a no- nothing cheerleader for the establishment.

mod34b said...

The Five are you a BC grad? You want censorship ? Remarkable how political orthodoxy so easily slides into censorship of non orthodox speech.

What is your issue with calling timid no action Jarmond “Mouse”? Is talk of his luv for partying somehow wrong? How are those terms befitting at time 200 years ago?

At least have the decency to explain your comments . I expect you will simply Turtle. (Omg can I say “turtle”)

Georgia Eagle said...

Lol Mod, you are killing me. Go easy on our new comrade. You have your hands full with knucklehead and CT

mod34b said...

Georgia. BC really brain washes these kids now.

I also luv the faux intellectual sniff of saying our comments “espouse”. (Really douché?) a “viewpoint”. (Asshole) “more befitting” (fuck off!!) the 19th century. Wtf.

Bc recent grads trying to insult like a Harvard man from 1940 shows how pathetic thing are.

Georgia Eagle said...

I couldn't agree more. The snowflake doesn't even have the balls to defend his assinine comments. He's used to campus group-think.

Bravesbill said...

The Five has to be either a BC board member or Jarmond himself. His entire hysterical screed is hilarious and not tethered to reality. Seems like he’s building his candidacy for the next AD!

Edward Griffith said...

Take 250,000 from the money DAZZO=SHIT is stealing and give it to ALLISON FOLEY some one
who is actually something "FOR BOSTON" and get her to reconsider.
Men's bb on upswing in what alternate universe those horrible losses to not very
good teams count heavily against anyone trying for NCAA bid.
Maybe the tourney below the NIT even there don't expect much.
Other than Ky and Tabbs the remainder would not make the top 8 ACC teams and perhaps
even 9.
Jarmond has done it for women's bb now he must repeat it for men's bb !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

JBQ said...

@Eagle1331: Ya think? @CVegasEagle: Ya think? @TheFive: You don't think.

TheFive said...

I like Jim Christian. I think he was given zero tools to succeed and is damn near doing so anyway. I think the basketball program is on the best footing that it’s been on, with a continued upward trend, since Gene needlessly fired Skinner and that BC’s best athletics blog should recognize that before calling for its coach to be fired before conference play begins. I think the middle of the ACC is soft and that we are in it. BC should never, ever lose to Hartford; that it did so without 2 of its best 3 players, is not the basis on which to fire a coach.

Unlike the mod and Georgia Eagle I do not pine for some bygone time where there was no PC police. Don’t call grown men animals. Particularly don’t when they’re African-American. These are not complicated concepts. If you have a BC degree, I’m deeply sorry that they have to be explained to you. I also think it important to let whoever reads this thing know that your antiquated, angry venom is not representative of the university you purport to support.

Georgia Eagle said...

Mod, did you call someone an animal? Bravesbill, did you call someone an animal? JBQ, did you call someone an animal? I didn't call anyone an animal. What is Comrade Five smoking? I think he inhaled too much tear gas at an ANTIFA rally against conservative free speech on college campuses.

mod34b said...

TheFive -

Tiger Wood needs to tell his mom to call him Eldrick

Nobody can call BC fan Kobe Bryant Black Mamba. Or Celetic player Glen Davis, “Big Dog”. Muggsy Bouges, Clyde Frazier, Tiny Archibald nick names are all an affront.

Did you know BC Police chief William Evans is also known as Mouse.

Nobody is sweating a nick name or packing it with bogus racial baggage, except you

Your smugness is hysterical and your judgment is poor and highly uninformed .

In fact, your approach of never using a nickname for a black American seems itself to be down right bigoted, and wrong

You either are a spoof or a joke. . Not sure which. I doubt any one who reads this blog will think much of your virtue signaling.

Mouse can and should be criticized for poor performance, as will Dazoshit, Jim ‘the dud’ Christian, Leahy-hoo and the rest.

Ps your hoops knowledge is way off too.

Bravesbill said...

I surely never did GA. I was merely commenting on his myopic view of Jim Christian. Somehow that was turned into accusations of racism.

BCEagles2014 said...

Just my 2 cents... anyone who claims “mouse” has racist intentions is delusional and just looking to make a problem out of nothing. People who remember my previous comments will know I was a staunch Jarmond supporter. That all changed when he extended Addazio. After this recent loss to Hartford, it wouldn’t surprise me if Jarmond hands a 2 year extension to Christian now if mediocrity is the standard for extensions these days.

That said, there are some asinine comments made on this blog that detract from the great community we have here. Sometimes, it has become outright unreadable. There was a comment made the other day likening Daz to a man who beat his wife. Please tell me how a comment like that is event remotely logical or defendable.

Georgia Eagle said...

I want Dazoshit ridden out of town on the rails. Is that tame enough for you, Junior?

BCEagles2014 said...

So Daz being a terrible coach is equivalent to beating your wife? Ok got it.

Georgia Eagle said...

Why do you young liberals keep putting words in our mouths? Very disingenuous.

BCEagles2014 said...

Comment from JBQ at 10:07AM on the Daz Film Room Blog. First sentence:

“The Dazzler is like the guy who beats his wife.”

Please tell me how I’m putting words in mouths...

BCAlum2000 said...

Daz sucks. Christian sucks. Leahy sucks. Jarmond is proving to be a spineless puppet. Its that simple.

Georgia Eagle said...

It was a play on words, Junior. Lighten-up. You kids today are wrapped way too tight.
Alum2000, you summed it up nicely.

Before I go completely ham on Jarmond - I want to know how much authority he has to remove the coaches? Does he have to get trustees' permission for Addazio/Christian because their buyout costs will be so high? If so, did he ask for and was he granted permission?

For the love of God, ATL, get this troll out of this forum. Do something!

BCAlum2000 said...

I have to wonder, is anyone actually stupid enough to click on any of those links?

TGS said...

Looks like Khead finally got a job. Now working for Bangalore tourism ministry.

mod34b said...

as a pimp! ha!

Georgia Eagle said...

You guys just poked the beast and the shit is about to hit the fan.

BC '65 said...

Well said. JC doing okay.

Tony Abardo said...

TheFive sounds as delusional as some of the posters from BCI. Maybe he came from there and decided to try out his crap on a new audience.

BCEagles2014 said...

To switch over to some positive news, BC Women’s Lax is ranked #1 in the preseason polls. Awesome recognition for a team that deserves to finally win a champsionship this year after coming so close in the last 2. Would love to see a men’s team at BC one day...

Georgia Eagle said...

Woman sports teams appear to be carrying BC.

TGS said...

Women’s sports is an oxymoron like jumbo shrimp, intelligent liberal and cogent Khead.
Watch the millennial wimps here go insane over that one.

Knucklehead said...

TGS is a ropesucker.

Knucklehead said...

Mod and his alter ego at work commenting together.

Knucklehead said...

TGS's "son" goes to Providence College.

He peruses the Big10 websites looking for me. Cannot get enough K.

Georgia Eagle said...

Lol I love you guys.

Knucklehead said...

Mod-pig rolling around in the mud trying to act like he and TGS didn't go to Rutgers.

Knucklehead said...

TGS, Your "sons" are millennial wimps. The BC one the Trinity on and the Providence one. All twobit pussies like their "father."

Knucklehead said...

Been in northern san diego for a while taking a break. While you two(mod-pig and his other email) are working.

Fucking losers.


Having fun trying to communicate with your boss in Bangalore TGS(aka mod-pig)? Sounds perfect for a stupid motherfucker like you to be working for someone in Bangalore.

And the new year has begun but equilibrium has returned. All is well . The Knuck is back. All hail the mighty Knuck.

Edward Griffith said...

TGS tell it to ND , UCONN, U TENN etc.

IT is all about recruiting and except for two superman guards unfortunately not 6'8"
Jim is not getting ACC caliber people. IF KY had not returned MEGA DISASTER !
Jared , Danya and Malcolm would be great recruiters and I believe have the smarts to
get BC to the middle and slightly better in the ACC
