    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: ACC Team Records For BC Athletics : same old same old BC lame circles.....  I am not angry but explaining things over and over does get tiresome.  You still keep your current BC team and I'll keep my Uconn team and we can see who comes out on top.   Not even close in the past so you can argue future success with yourselves.  In the meantime why don't you join the other 36 people at a BC game while I try to get tickets to Uconn in a packed house.  You like the Pinto, I like the Benz.  You are crazy for liking the Pinto better but common sense and logic are not your strengths...

    No, Donnnnn.  You are a pretty angry person.  Just go back and look at your posts if you have any doubt.  What's more, you don't believe a word you just said.  If you did, you would not be wasting your time here with the "pinto" crowd when you could be hanging with the cool folks driving the "Benz's."  Again:  "you are known by your deeds."

    Eagle78, naw I had a feeling he would use words like "silly" and "dumb" and then the car analogy thing again.  It's all he's got.

    Yes, Donnnnnnn.  I am a BC sports fan, writing about BC sports, on a BC thread.  Imagine that!  What I am not doing is going to Uconn Boards and threads to bash their teams.  Only an obsessive person would do that.

    You seem to fit that bill quite nicely.

    Oh, and BTW, thanks for the spelling check.  I guess when you cannot respond to any of my rebuttals, you focus on spelling. Go figure.

    Adding Pitt and Syracuse seems like an attempt to correct the problems from the first expansion though, rather than supporting evidence that the initial expansion worked.  The initial expansion was pretty clearly done to improve football and get enough teams for an ACC championship game in football.  This one doesn't make much sense other than to try and improve basketball.

    This is my general view of the situation and I don't think staying in the Big East is a such a bad thing.  Donnn represents one point of view on this issue in terms of UConn hopes to join the ACC.  Basketball still should be pretty strong with UConn, Marquette, Notre Dame, Georgetown, Louisville, Cincy, and Memphis.  Hopefully, St. Johns and Seton Hall will improve too.  

    Personally, I think there is a bigger chance for a Pitt decline in basketball post-expansion than UConn.  Calhoun should retire and they should have an open search and hire the best available coach.  People here might not agree but it's hard to dispute that UConn is a top five program in the past 20 years so they should be able to hire a good young coach.  Calhoun is a great coach but it seems with his age and medical problems that the program has gone off the rails a little in terms of institutional control.

    ESPN Basketball Recruiting Insider has Pitt with the #13 recruiting class in 2012, with 8 ACC teams in the top 25. The BE has 1, that's ONE, and it's Providence. Could this signal a resurgence of the ACC and the decline of the BE?

    Re: ACC Team Records For BC Athletics

    Pitt and Syracuse will probably still be in the BE next year so claiming their draft successes already seems a bit presumptuous.  Rivals.com has 6 BE teams in the top 25 and 5 ACC teams (4 and 7 if you want to count Pitt and Syracuse already).  These things can vary year by year depending on the previous recruiting class--last year St. John's, Louisville, UConn, Rutgers, and Georgetown had top 25 classes. 

    Certainly, the ACC could use the help. According to this article, attendance at basketball games has dropped every year since 2008 and this year's attendance is the lowest in 25 years.


    Not surprisingly, the ACC fans commenting on the article overwhelmingly blame expansion.

    Good points and an interesting article. I can sympathize with the comments of ACC fans because I thought it was a mistake for BC to leave the Big East. I'd much rather see them play UConn and Georgetown than NC State and Virginia. The Miami Herald had an article about Miami attendance yesterday. They're averaging 4,467 and had only 4,292 vs Va Tech on Wednesday with many empty seats in the student section despite a university sponsored pregame buffalo wings party. I wonder what the attendance figures for college basketball are in general. I watched several preseason tournaments and the stands were practically empty. TV overexposure and shifting conference loyalties are certainly factors.

    Are you actually thinking (I know it's a huge reach for you) that that's Jared Dudley in the photo with Lin? Last time I checked, Dudley played for the Suns. Nice try, but that's Matt Barnes of the Lakers. And for you to make a statement like Jeremy Lin is a much better basketball player than "bench warmer" Jared Dudley (who, by the way, has started 21 of 26 games this year) shows how little you know about basketball. Dudley's also 6th among NBA active players in 3-point percentage, 12th overall. I thought your credibility was at an all time low, but you've sunk even lower.

    Dogboy, you continue to spew out these falsehoods. "All prospects headed to either Kansas or Syracuse" is  total BS. DeMatha's #1 prospect point guard James Robinson committed to Pitt.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: ACC Team Records For BC Athletics : Nice try...now how about responding to even one of the comments in my above post. Lets try again: A "doormat" would be a team that is the least successful in the conference - i.e.., winning the fewest games.  BC football has won more games in its 7 years in the ACC than everyone else in the Conference but VT.  Even this year, BC's worst season in 13 years, it still won more games than 2 other ACC teams. Do they not teach math at Uconn? As for Men's BB, if you want to say BC is a doormat based on the season to date? - fine.  Then by your logic, your Uconn Huskies are an also-ran team fighting to stay out of the lower part of the BE standings.  Agreed? And yes, the ACC is quite happy with BC.  They have had successful FB, Men's BB, and Soccer programs since joining the ACC.  BC's FB team enjoys solid TV ratings in the huge Boston market and don't think that isn't important to them. Many more ACC games - and significantly less BE games - are now televised in Boston. Plus, BC brings top level academics (#31, USN&WR) to the ACC which is also extremely important to them. Look, you are a Uconn fan so I understand your envy.  BC, and now SU and Pitt, are part of the ACC.  Uconn, despite all of the rather all-to-obvious pleadings, is not.  WVU is leaving the BE.  Uconn and RU will now be the ones on an "island" in a conference that literally extends from coast-to-coast.  Should do wonders for your recruiting going forward.

    Indians1948 -

    Not sure you realize, but UofNDKing and whr are actually the same person. He has other logins as well including postingking, 82ndAB, cheeroh and googleboy.

    One of the ways he gives himself away is that no matter the persona he adopts he always makes the same mistakes. See this example  - "Tobacco Row".

    My favorite was when all his personas went on and on how Lou Saban was the best coach in college football. Lou Saban. Not Nick Saban.

    And on and on it goes.
