In Response to Re: What are Realistic Expectations for the BC Football team
[QUOTE]It's really sad to look in on this blog and see how many trolls are here spending valuable time bashing BC on it's own thread. The simple fact of the matter is that we are discussing a game, what used to be just an extracurricular activity. Nothing more. ND and Husky.... get your own houses in order before bashing others. ND, you have nothing to say now that Our Lady has admitted they are now lowering their academic and disciplinary standards to field a more competitive team... look to see your graduation rates take a deep dive. Here are a few facts that some of you never mention. 1)FBS football is nothing more than a cheap minor league for the NFL, and College Basketball is nothing more than a cheap Bush league for the NBA. Until those issues are addressed then there is no hope in even touching the corruption in the institutions involved. 2)Tom O'Brien left BC stating he could never bring BC to the next level, then BC won more games in a season than it did with him there. 3) BC will probably never be a National Champion, Neither will UConn, their appearance in a BCS game was looked upon as a joke by most of the Media, then they went and proved the pundits right. 4) 11 wins is the high end for any BC team. This year 8 wins is the ceiling, with Harris ailing and half their secondary missing. 5) Only about 2 dozen teams ever have a legit shot at the National Championship and most of us know the names by heart. The thing is that they rose to or were at prominence when the TV era began, before that teams like Fordam, Army and the like were legitimate contenders, today they can't play in the same division. 6)The bowl system will continue to make the game smell like raw sewerage at high noon as School administrators are treated to the same benefits that Miami players are being sanctioned for. Time to cut bait, kill the Bowls and institute a playoff system, 32 team smash mouth single elimination. No questions asked, no shared titles, no titles vacated decades later on a whim, just winning it on the field. So what if the finalists play 17 games, it's not as though finals really mean anything at schools like Alabama, FSU or Mississippi State.... or ND now. And as far as the schedule being too long... this is supposed to be the premier fotball level, the FCS has a playoff and there are about a dozen states where their high school champions play 17, seems as though the BCS is a let down for these kids. In the end though, it's a game, chill out.

Some of your points were excellent and well taken. There are several people on this thread that are either mentally impaired or possibly immature adolescents who seem to thrive on being complete idiots.
I am certain that there are plenty of folks like yourself who only want to engage in quality discussions about the football & basketball teams.
Unfortunately, these few idiots (you know who you are) will go to great lengths to sabotage anything constructive which is posted on these threads. Similar to you, I have also suggested that these clowns just start their own thread in order to feed off of each others negativity. Based on the way they continually respond,it is obvious that their primary agenda is light years different than the rest of us.
Up to now, I have only seen one of them (Long putter) start his own posting. I have also made it a point to never respond, no matter what ridiculous stuff is on there, because those particular post are for people who think in a similar fashion.
