In Response to Re: ACC Team Records For BC Athletics : Idiotic? read Fukowi's post and his records and then you tell me how "idiotic" it is to see those records and NOT think BC is a doormat... Keep in mind the ACC is a very weak Hoops and Football league! You don't think the ACC regrets inviting BC?

Nice try...now how about responding to even one of the comments in my above post.
Lets try again:
A "doormat" would be a team that is the least successful in the conference - i.e.., winning the fewest games. BC football has won more games in its 7 years in the ACC than everyone else in the Conference but VT. Even this year, BC's worst season in 13 years, it still won more games than 2 other ACC teams.
Do they not teach math at Uconn?
As for Men's BB, if you want to say BC is a doormat based on the season to date? - fine. Then by your logic, your Uconn Huskies are an also-ran team fighting to stay out of the lower part of the BE standings. Agreed?
And yes, the ACC is quite happy with BC. They have had successful FB, Men's BB, and Soccer programs since joining the ACC. BC's FB team enjoys solid TV ratings in the huge Boston market and don't think that isn't important to them. Many more ACC games - and significantly less BE games - are now televised in Boston. Plus, BC brings top level academics (#31, USN&WR) to the ACC which is also extremely important to them.
Look, you are a Uconn fan so I understand your envy. BC, and now SU and Pitt, are part of the ACC. Uconn, despite all of the rather all-to-obvious pleadings, is not. WVU is leaving the BE. Uconn and RU will now be the ones on an "island" in a conference that literally extends from coast-to-coast. Should do wonders for your recruiting going forward.
