How things have changed

A poster on Eagle Action brought this picture to my attention. It is former BC athletic director Bill Flynn touching up the logo on the basketball court. I don’t know the date but imagine -- based on the hair and logo -- that it was taken in the late ‘70s. It is a nice tribute to a guy who put his heart and soul into BC athletics. It is also a sign of how things have changed in college sports. Now there are whole teams of people working in these departments and the AD is a CEO, not a down and dirty, do what must be done, jack of all trades. Can you imagine an AD from any Division IA school doing this today?
