Leaving the Big East was a no brainer and every school in our situation would have done the same thing (all of them tried behind the scenes). Yet it sparked plenty of ugly behavior from the remaining Big East schools. The most outspoken and obnoxious critics were Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal and UConn basketball coach Jim Calhoun. All this background made last night’s upset of No. 9 UConn that much sweeter. BC won 75-70 with Craig Smith on the bench most of the game in foul trouble. I didn’t see the game, but based on the gametracker, radio broadcast and highlights, it appears that we played very aggressively on D; attacking the ball and breaking up passing lanes. I am really excited about the season and love sticking it to UConn, their slanderous coach and their bottle throwing fans.
