Re: BC fans: Feel Bad for UConn

As time goes by and UConn sinks further this is going to be too easy.
So Donnn remember all that talk before about the academics part...you know...all those times when you said that UConn was a better academic school (chuckle) than BC. Not lookin so good now is it now. Not that we needed the above article to establish UConn ain't the best school academically speaking. But now recruits know that if they go to UConn they better hope they're getting into the NBA, because that diploma isn't worth the paper its written on.
bac, I'm just following Donnn's lead. When another BC fan responded to him with a history of BC sports, he stated only the present time counts. So disregard uconn's prior accolades in 1 sport. I won't even address football because its no fun to pick on a I-AA team. Regarding basketball, that means BC is on the rise and UConn is falling in disgrace. Sure, BC is a young team and I think its totally fair that UConn stands a chance at beating BC presently. But BC is a team on the rise, especially with 9 freshmen knocking off the 15th rank team in the country. Any game with them is fun to watch because they're expected to lose, so if they win its a bonus.
UConn, on the other hand, is a team lead by 4 seniors which has lost 5 of its last 6 games (3 certain losses to come in the near future), probably wont make the tourney, won't be allowed to make the tourney in 2013, its team is under scrutiny for being an academic disgrace, and its coach is a cripple unable to lead the team.
I would much rather be hopeful and root for the team on the rise, than watch the team losing and falling in disgrace. As I've said from the beginning, UConn is on a downward spiral. The sad thing is, Calhoun is a selfish old man and he will stay with UConn for the next couple of years, delaying the inevitable search for a new head coach, and firmly sinking the program. Combine that with the fall of the big east and UConn has a sad future.
Question: does anyone truly think the BE is going to survive or the BE is better in basketball with Syracuse and Pitt gone? or that Calhoun has his best coaching years ahead of him. The answer is no to both.
