    The Throngs Arriving at Logan

    Normally, colleges seeking to contact a coach under contract at another school first seek permission orally, and then by writing.

    As a result of last night's thrashing of McNeese State, that practice is not being followed in at least one situation.

    Rumors abound that AD's from top schools all around the country jetted into Logan overnight, dashed into their waiting cars, and then sped to Conte early this morning to BEG for the OK to interview Steve Wonder.

    He is now so hot a property that one wonders if Flippo will insist on a package deal (i.e. bringing him, too) as a condition of granting the requested permission.

    This is as believable as Longracist owning a duplex on Blue Hill Avenue.

    It sure is getting mighty thin in LP's world. 

    Then again this is as believable as the rest of the stuff he has posted here

    But wait Skinner, the "master recruiter", is out there why isn't he being pursued ? AD's from these top schools should've realized Steve Donahue won with Al's kids so shouldn't they be stopping by Skinner's house ?

    According to some Providence College should've already hired Al so those AD's better hurry...

    Excuse me, wait in line. First the saintly Jim O'Brien - who never did anything untoward or unethical will be hired. You remember him - the great man unjustly ousted by the Gang of Two in 1997.

    The nefariousness and power of the Gang of Two are certainly to blame for the fact that Coach Skinner and Coach O'Brien are presently unemployed.

    One day - when sanity reigns - I am sure we will see the two of them as coaches at Kansas and Kentucky.

    And this person claims some connection to "Dartmouth".  Is that Dartmouth, MA, High School?  No, can't be.  A public HS grad could at least write a comprehensible sentence and spell correctly, right?  If you are claiming to have Ivy League connections, then you're up there with LP in terms of delusion.  What's the connection between the NIT and Jim O'Brien? To quote you, "BC is in the forgotten NIT, where Jim O'Brien walked off with....".  Did O'Brien walk off with that $$$ in/from the NIT?   Did you complete the 5th grade?  Is anyone supposed to take you seriously?  Do you know how pathetic your ramblings are?
    Thanks for the laugh (again).

    Oh, and at the risk of "piling on", the legal action you refer to was a suit brought by O'Brien against OSU for wrongful termination of his contract there.  The award of the Ohio circuit court was reduced on appeal, since some of O'Brien's compensation resulted from wins that were subsequently voided due to NCAA rules infractions.  It had nothing at all to do with BC or Fr. "Ronan". (The name of the outgoing President of BC around the time that O'Brien was dismissed was Monan.  The name of the Barbarian of movie fame was Conan. But I  would not have expected you to know that).

    Glad you agree with me ("no kidding troll").  As for the rest of your post, it's the usual incomprehensible, illogical garbage.  Looks like you're admitting that your original post made no sense at all, as usual.

    Great to see the University of Notre dame in the news again for another National Title in Baketball. As the NCAA's progresses UND will be in the Elite 8  and venture in their quest for the Final Four, an accomplishemnt this team richly deserves. UConn is a big test, with Kansas in the mix and with the addition of the Duke super star getting medical clearance it could be one heck of a tournament.

    As for the BC basketball program never was, never will! For the insipid morons who keep on jabbering, cable has taken the NIT off air where the yocals can further humiliate themselves devote more time watching the QVC channel and post on this moronic blog.

    UNDking (aka whr, postingking), we really enjoy exchanging opinions with YOU on this moronic blog.  We think it's wonderful that you have such interest in Boston College sports that you post so often here.  ND is having quite a good year in b'ball, but don't go hiding on us if they lose, like you did when they lost to Louisville.  Act like a grownup and come back and post, win or lose.

    Re: The Throngs Arriving at Logan

    Gents,


    1. As usual, Gatzie checks in with his trademark factual inaccuracy.

          Coach Jim O'Brien was never charged with any dishonesty. In fact, the then-AD at OSU so testified. All concurred that he used his personal money to make a loan to a family in need - as he had done often before.

    2. When Leahy went on his rampage and let JOB go because the Globe published what he did not want known - i.e. that he'd OK'd reduced admissions standards for ballplayers - there was no Gang of Two. Flippo was not hired until months later.

           Coach Skinner IS employed: The Institute is paying him $1.1 million per year this season - and for the next two. (And y'all are paying that freight, by the by).

    2.  Why the distress at my news? The inevitable is here, now that the hoops world has discovered what y'all have been preaching all season - i.e. that, next to Dr. Naismith, Stevie Wonder (and his discoverers, The Gang of Two) is the most enlightened basketball entity ever - every college want him to come rescue their program, as he has convincingly done here.

    3. With the Vols' loss today and the likely change of coaches there, Logan can expect a plane bearing orange-clad lads to land imminently, so those emissaries can make a bee line for Conte, to ardently entreat Flippo to free Stevie Wonder.

    Peace on, my brethren.

    Re: The Throngs Arriving at Logan

    well you are right Skinner is employed  doing the same thing as he did last year when he was a no-show at Conte and allowing others to run things

    Tell me LP when is the right time to fire an underperforming coach...only at the end of his contract; and if Leahy and GDF had it in so badly for Skinner how did he last 13 years in their regime?  Why did a man of such great integrity choose to stay with a detestable group? after all should he have not seen them for what they are?

    Or did he enjoy collecting his money while providing minimal effort the last few years of his contract?

    It has to make you wonder, with all the latest round of NCAA coaching positions opening, who is more likely to get a call, Donahue, Skinner or O'Brien?

    All over for the Boston Basketball scene!

    It took one game, by a pretender, 16th seed, a perennial NCAA non qualifier with BC, and it's gone so for Collegiate Basketball!  Coupled with the aging Celtics, no shows in Long Island, and Houston it's a  long summer watching way back Papblebon and Dice K on NESN!

    But then it's UCONN, and it's quest again for a dual NCAA Championship leaving the Boston sports scene Green with envy!

    Here is a comment from a Kansas fan, reacting to cheeroh and friends dumping on BU's effort against the Jayhawks.  These idiots don't know how much they are scorned by true sports fans.

Great job. Your comments say a lot about you and what you are. Anyone can get a log in. Usually the types that smack talk on a computer are those who can't do anything else.
