In response to whr's comment:
While all alums care about the progam at BC, is it a foregone conclusion the BCS emphasis has by-past BC? I believe the Army game was the nail in the coffin for Spazoo, and he knows this is his last year.
Recruiting has been a problem at BC, and I believe getting good recruits to come to this institution is very difficult with what the College offers small venues. This is the reason Tom O'Brien left, as BC cannot expand as its urban campus is restrictive with neighbors who could care less about Football.
Even with an exceptional QB as Matt Ryan was at BC, and now in the NFL, BC could not put it together, as the big boys in the SEC with their stellar venues that pack close to 100,000 fans are what the networks are paying to attract viewers. Notre Dame draws, and the Longhorns are King of the Big12 in revenue, and this is way Nebraska left, they were tired of Mack Brown's arrogance when it came to sharing revenue. Tom Osborne hated Mack Brown.
Perhaps a good example of failing football and academic institutions is Vanderbilt where they barely break .500, and I won't go so far as to bring up the Rice Owls which have been down and out for years. Stamford, UND, and Georgia Tech are very good schools academically second to none, Recruiting has been a problem at BC, and I believe getting good recruits to come to this institution is bleak. There is also a saying at GT, there's admission to GT for Football players and the rest.
BC has been at a turning point for years, and frankly the institution has lost the edge in completive scheduling, where Stony Brook might be a challenge for them in 2013 and beyond. It certainly appears their mind set is perplexing over there at the Heights, and their embarrassment will be a wakeup call as it is with the Red Sox.
WHR, you are an enmbarrassment. Stay off the sauce, please, and try to write a coherent sentence. Can you explain the following nonsense?:
"with what the college offers small venues."
"this is way Nebraska left."
"there's admission to GT for football players and the rest."
"the institution has lost the edge in completive (sic) scheduling."
And you have the stupidity to post this garbage on, not one, but two discussions. Where did you go to school???
