    What does this tell you?

    So, Alex Murphy, is now the second basketball-star son of prominent Eagle hoops alum Jay Murphy to bypass The Institute, today committing to Duke. (His older brother is now playing at Florida for Billy Donovan ,who also bypassed BC, his own hoops starter father's alma mater).

    Seems that the euphoria over the firing of Coach Skinner and the installation of Stevie Wonder that some on this forum reflexively chirp has not reached the Murphy household.

    Hmmmm.

    Re: What does this tell you?

    Erik Murphy is a sophomore at Florida.  Skinner was BC's coach while Erik was still in prep school being recruited.  Coach Donahue did not factor into his selection of colleges, nor is there any proof that Donahue's hiring at BC or Skinner's departure influenced the younger (Alex) Murphy's decision.  Jay Murphy, their dad, of course had academic issues (flunking out of A&S and going to night school) while playing at BC under the watch of former coaches and administrators.

    The only thing this tells me is that Jay must have been severely mentally challenged to flunk out of Brainless College

    Re: What does this tell you?

    who said that Jay Murphy was enamored for his children to go to BC? Not every alum wants his kids to attend the school they did.  Did you have a conversation with JM in which he said his kids would have attended if the coaching change was not made (younger Murphy only?)

    Re: What does this tell you?

    Nice deflection tries, gentlemen, but the facts speak for themselves.

    The Institute DID recruit Alex Murphy - and failed, once again.

    My point is that evidently not everyone shares the zeal of the "faithful" on this forum about the prospects of the The Institute.

    Thanks to The Gang of Two, alma mater is now in a far from ideal athletic perspective, both fiscally and competitively.

    As long as they keep the current regime, they will flounder.

    When you folks muster the honesty to recognize that, you'll escape the perils of blind devotion.

    Things CAN change, and a better climate CAN be had on this campus.

    Just imagine the joy of that!

    Peace!

    Re: What does this tell you?

    talk about deflections; you still fail to address getting Eric Murphy even with Skinner there.  If it is about the coach as you intinate in your OP what happned there. You can recruit someone but not always get them.  facts have no relevance in your world LP

    Re: What does this tell you?

    LP, please....the only person with "blind devotion" problems appears to be you, with your devoted anitpathy to the current President and AD.  Once again you dodge the issues: Skinner's failure to recurit Erik Murphy to BC, and the fact that there is an unfortunate history between Jay Murphy and BC from his playing days in the '80s under the administration in place at that time.  I can't say for sure that this history influenced his sons' decisions not to play at BC, but at least I admit that my speculation and the facts may be two different things-something that you never do.

    So true, Dog.  But hey,I wonder if LP has any eligibility left.  Coach D might welcome someone who spins and twists as well as LP does!

    Re: What does this tell you?

    OF COURSE no sensible recruit would choose The Institute over Duke - or over ND, G'town, Nova, Cuse, UNC, most other Big East schools, the Big Ten et al. , for that matter.

    Point: our program is considered small potatoes.  The sacking of Coach Skinner and the substitution of an all-Ivy staff who can't beat Ivy teams has done little, if anything, to elevate our status. Most nights, we can't half-fill an 8000 seat arena.

    Why is that?

    IMHO, the national perception of the athletic dimensions of The Institute needs dramatic improvement.

    In fact, there are few places in more need of regime change than The Institute (maybe North Korea and Iran have higher need, but not many others do).

    But , then,  y'all can dream on in your illusion of reverie, as I anticipate you will.

    Peace, nonetheless, chaps.

    Re: What does this tell you?

    Trouble with recruiting the Murph's, is that BC needed to be out on the road recruiting.  Al, a fine gentleman we all agree, had decided to skip the recruiting process.  Now, all prior connections need to be rebuilt by Donahue and staff in former grooming areas for talent.  A number of existing recruiting strengths were lost as Al settled in with alternate methods.  This was all well and good for awhile as he compensated for it with his own connections while hanging onto some of those held by his assistants.

    So LP, it's ok for you to blither and blow, but how about a positive coment on the hockey game, or the latest victory by both hoops teams?  Or, just respond to how Super-Skinner could have lost the Murphys because he never wanted them.

    Or, just ignore and start another topic.

    Re: What does this tell you?

    LP, listen to what you are saying you nitwit.  First, you just admitted that Skinner did NOT bring BC to national acclaim.  Second, you once again, after only 1/2 of a season and after exactly ZERO full recruiting seasons you have deemed SD to be a failure.  Makes total sense, you are showing supreme logic....cripes.

    Second, was it not too long ago that BC hoops made a run at the Final 4, or not long ago that BC football was ranked #2 in the county.  Yup, sounds like they are horrible to me.  Or out of 120 give or take Div I football teams BC footballs latest recruiting class was ranked in the top 35.  Def sounds like a team and athletic program no one wants to go to, beating out 85 or 70% of the other teams.

    This doesn't even mention the Final 4 the women's soccer team just reached or the consistent seat in the top 25 the men's soccer team has.  Oh, I forgot, our hockey team is the single most dominant team in all of college sports over the last decade.

    Yup LP, sure seems the rep of BC needs dramatic improvement, they seem to be really struggling.

    Dear, you are starting to post in the manner of Longputter, who is not a good role model for someone of your tender years.  And by the way, it's Ms., not Mr, and its eaglebeagle, not beagle eagle.  A remedial reading course will help in the latter regard.

    Regarding BC's basketball record this year, it's obviously a major "rebuilding year" given the lack of recruiting in recent years.  Rebuilding years are something that ND fans are quite familiar with.  If you need a reference on that point, check out ND's football records in recent years and the history of coaching changes in the past decade as they try to improve their football program.

    To the blind Gang of Two fans here:

    Careful when criticizing ND.

    Seems that Coaches Brey and Kelly have the Irish in a position that we at The Institute can only dream of - and one which we may not attain until wholesale administration change sweeps The Heights clean.

    Peace.

    Re: What does this tell you?

    Your point is pure speculation, and it has nothing to do with the topic you started.  But I admit - Kelly has a good track record.  We'll see how he does keeping within ND's academic expectations. 

    But what about the topic you started, trying to blame the exodus of the Murphy's on Donahue?  The fact is, Al, a fine gentleman you must admit, showed no real interest in recruiting either one of them...not that he was really after anyone for the final two years in any case. And yes, the parent had academic issues during the regime of excellence, where he was dipped into the night school for his credits.  Not a big deal - the facts, no, not a big deal.

    LP, what ND position are you talking about for their football team?  Please do tell???  Kelly will be fired in 3 years, just like the last 3 coaches....you have ZERO basis for your comment.

    And don't worry, I don't take offense at your lack or response to my comments about what you said.  I mean, you have nothing to say, how could you, everything I said cannot be argued against....
