Chin drafted and other links

The Yankees selected Andrew Chin in the 15th round of the MLB Draft. He was the 452nd pick overall. Congrats to Andrew on getting drafted a second time (he was previously drafted out of high school). Chin now needs to decide if he wants to forego his remaining eligibility and sign this summer or complete his college career. Given his injury history, it wouldn't surprise me to see him sign.

UMass announced a 3 pm kickoff for our season opener at Gillette. ESPN3 will carry the game. The Red Sox have night game, so maybe, just maybe, NESN will pick up the ESPN3 feed and distribute it locally. But then again that would make too much sense.

The ACC increased its team payout by $1.2 million. What this means is that BC's major revenues are inline with the sports biggest players. Where we start to fall behind is in ticket revenue and licensing deals.

Not a bad deal BC to still get all that ACC revenue in return for merely delivering an overall league record of 47 and 118 for a whopping .398 ACC win percentage. Now getting away with that kind of deal is what I call "ever to excel"!!
