More Alumni shots and other links

A day after we put a pic up, BC released their own shot of the new field. Hopefully they keep documenting and sharing the progress via social media.

Heights and Lows has the first look at the new SuperFan shirt and an all important ranking of the slogans. Some of us are old enough to remember when the shirt had nothing on the back.

BC offered Ohio TE Kevin Kavalec. He currently has offers from MAC schools, but I don't mind us reaching a bit on a kid from St. Ignatius. At one time it was a mini-pipeline for us. Getting our foot back in the door there may pay off down the road. Virginia prospect Brandon Ravenel had good things to say about BC.

The field of our early Novermber Tournament in Charleston is set. BC won't be favored but that is a winnable tournament. Baylor and St. John's have the most returning talent, but all of those teams will be replacing key contributors. BC -- of course -- will have 90% of the team back.

Here are the bios of Mike Gambino's latest recruiting class.

The Globe published a great feature on Anthony Melchionda.

Hearing that Presto's suddenly closed...say it ain't so

Unknown - Hawaiian skirts were big at football games in the 90s.

At least Pino's is still there. As for the slogans, the worst by far is "talons of fury...get ready". My recollection is that that was the slogan for the year we entered the ACC; orientation leaders select the shirt slogan and they somehow chose that ridiculous one over "The Eagle Has Landed".

How about "We're not the douchebags our slogans suggest we are"?

Tim said...

They should use "Through thee we shall prevail!"

It's a line from the alma mater, and it suggests that we might actually win.

Big Jack Krack said...

"We'll hit you even harder in the 4th (period)."

I will definitely check out the Charleston Classic this year to see if we are making any progress.

The Superfan shirts etc started when I was a freshman. Never wore a yellow shirt myself.

My suggestion however is to pick a slogan for the football program and use it in perpetuity. Put the year under the slogan for folks who want to distinguish themselves. Alternate the colors; maroon one year and yellow the next.

No one outside of the school knows what the slogans are or that they change but I do and they are embarassing.
