[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Big 10 football conference crushes ACC : Huh? Again, get me some of what you are smoking! I think this was just a silly unspported with facts post to try to get a rise so I'll take the bait with the hope your comment was just a rant because Boston doesn't have big time college sports. Uconn is a better school academically than most of the ACC. Fan support? you kidding me, they let BC in with no fans, No big time Coach and ZERO fan base while Uconn has all of that including ESPN in their own backyard! And Yes, BC certainly was scared of the competition and looking at their teams, I understand why they didn't want Uconn in. trust ME, BC is VERY afraid.

UConn is not a better school academically than most of the ACC schools, are you kidding me? A few of them, yes. But not "most" by any means. And looking at the competition BC faces every year within the ACC, theres absolutely no reason for them to be afraid of just one more team. The only threat UConn would put against BC in big time sports is in bball, and theres already heavy competition already.
BC (and by BC, I mean GDF only) is opposing UConns entering the ACC because of their lawsuit. I agree its stupid, but thats what GDFs feeling like doing. Its unacceptable for personal grudges to get in the way of athletic department administration.
I'd say that BC qualifies as a big time college sports team. But in Boston, pro sports definitely takes priority, which makes sense considering that they have 4 championship teams. Once BC builds up a better bball team, there will be more people going to the games. Of course not a whole lot of people will go to games for the worst team in the conference, and that goes for any school. I dont care what conference youre talking about. DePaul bball is basically the only sport the school has, and the only fans that show up to their games are the ones supporting the visiting team.
It'll take time, but BC can and will become a better team. Its year one.
