    "Great School" is a brain washed Jesse James comment. Numerous schools in Boston far superior to Blovite College.

    UConn is a joke, they have only sold 4500 of their 17500 mandated ticket allotment. UCon is a national embarrassment and thier making the Big East look horrible.

    @screennamegoes: needs a reality check ... a sit down session with Mike Felger on BC being a non entity Nationally, especially down in Dixie!   
    Posted by 82ndAB

    But Fleger is just another jealous pundit who's  bitter because BU dropped football and baseball.   C'mon, though I enjoy following BC sports, additionally I love all local university athletic programs, no need to belittle one for the benefit of another. 
    While on the subject, though it's difficult to understand why anyone really cares which bowl is better, Fiesta is a superior assignment.  This year however, both bowls are unimportant on the grand scale of NCAA sports.

    First, I am surprised Longputter hasn't come into this thread and ruined it with his bombast. JBQ I disagree with your assessment that BC is regressing under Frank Spaziani. Had Joe Boisture not decommited after JAGS was fired, BC might actually have been 10-2 being run by a 4 star phenom, instead BC did back into a bowl and Boisture will languish behind upperclassmen at MSU for the foreseeable future. However BC did have a decent Defensive season with a sophomore All American that was recruited by Spas, and a run D that was #2 in the country. This past recruiting season was probably BC's best in my memory. BC's future for the next couple of years looks good. Finding a more imaginative offense would help.
    82ndAB, thank you for everything, but I wonder if you aren't a little extra biased due to the Other Division. That said, you are generally correct, BC is a Non-entity, Nationally, in football but that is true of 100 other FBS schools. Other than a handful of perennial powers, no-one else has a shot at the BCS Championship and therefore ever becoming relevant.

    BC football is in really good shape.  They has something like 24 freshman and sophmores on the team this year, many of whom played and played well.  In today's news they signed a top 10 dback who was gonig to Miami but changed his mind and chose BC instead.  Penn State was also in the running.  We have a solid D and a QB who looks every bit the part.  Its going to be a fun next 3-4 years.

    Let's not kid ourselves. 

    1.  Rettig is better than Boisture.

    2.  Rettig came in a semester early and was as ready as any true freshman could have been. 

    3.  If your argument is about QBs not helping BC get to 10-2 then the problems were Spaz playing Shinskie for the first few games and screwing everyone and Spaz screwing up the OLine, which got Rettig injured early vs. ND, which was winnable.  It took Spaz weeks to figure out he should put his line back the way it should have been and to play the best QB and not Shinskie.

    Agreed on numbers 2 & 3 and especially about Shinskie who seemed talented but did struggle.  Unsure of #1 because we have little to judge.

    Re: BC Bowl Better Than UCONN's

    I fully agree on the coaching staff starting Shinskie, he was barely able to set up under center and still screwed that up once. As far as Boisture and Rettig, We will probably never know, because Rettig will be the BC QB for the next 3 years while Boisture may never make it on to the field at MSU. However, I think Boisture might have been given the nod early on because of 4 star perception, and would have been better than Shinskie, even with only a month in the program. He would have been responsible for less turnovers and that would have put BC in the VT and ND games and won both the FSU and MD games. NC ST was just too imposing with Wilson at QB for any BC QB to have made a difference, though the score would have far less lopsided.
    I seriously doubt that Spaz made he O-line and QB decisions. He is a Defense coach and knows it. Those decisions were all Tranquil. Now that the Fridge is out at Maryland, I wonder if he might be available for Offensive coordinator, as his offenses were always good, and he turned some mediocre QB's into weapons.
    As I stated in I think BC has a very strong future with it's young squad this year and it's outstanding (for BC) recruiting year. With three strong backs,(Kimble will be special I think) outstanding ends, strong O line and improved WRs (especially with Larmond back next year) and Rettig not only a year more experienced but pushed by another good QB from this crop, I see a strong offense complimenting an Outstanding D to give BC s strong shot at a BCS bowl next year and winning it. 
    BC will be a top 10 team the next few seasons but like TCU, will be blocked from a shot at a National Championship because the SEC will still get a virtually automatic bid.

    High school D Backs a dime a dozen. Good college D Backs are good high school wide receivers who can't catch the faster ball in college. He probably didn't academics for Miami.

    "However, I think Boisture might have been given the nod early on because of 4 star perception"

    Are you serious with this?  Come on.  Seriously, the talk about stars is ridiculous.  Boisture was #18 and Rettig #21 on the rivals charts.  5.7 vs. 5.8, the difference between the highest three-star (Rettig) and the lowest 4-star (Boisture).  Both were All-Americans. 

    And seriously, you think the staff is playing guys based on recruiting stars handed out by pedofreaks from rivals and scout?  Sorry, but that's ridiculous.  I won't go into the myriad of 3-star guys that play more than 4-star guys (Will Thompson for one).  Rettig was STILL higher rated by rivals than Shinskie but that wasn't good enough because he was a few spots away from another star?  Seriously...

    Sorry, I know having a serious conversation about sports is not fun for you and your broad brush generalization MO. 

    Get working on that resolution list for 2011, bagelboy.  If you want to do something other than play WOW and work at Wendy's, you're going to have to work for it.  Remember what Dean Wormer said to Dorfman?

    googleboy, are you giving him grief because he's talking about BC on a BC blog?  Really?  If you don't like BC and don't want to discuss them, THEN LEAVE!  Go read something else you nitwit.  Your post was pointless and juvenile.

    Was it just me or did anyone else get a feeling of Deja Vu watching Dominique Davis cough up a couple of interceptions in a bowl? After Dunbar's late hit on Ryan, how awkward is that class reunion going to be?

    I concede the point that stars is almost meaningless, see Ryan, but Boisture being in the BC fold would have made starting Shinskie far less urgent and might very well have allowed the staff to lift the red shirt much earlier on one of the Frosh. All things being equal, the 4 star perception would have been Boisture's self image and that swagger probably would have been the difference. 

    In any event, Rettig is the man now and I am comfortable with him under center not only going into next season but also on the 9th against Nevada. I am happy to see several RB's available to take some of the load off of Harris, and I hope they rest him for the game. He and Williams should make an awesome tandum next year, if Tranquil can use some immagination and make use of them properly. I can see BC averaging 200 YPG on the ground with both threats on the field, with significant outlet action for the passing game. This single RB stupidity is what got Harris hurt and cost the Eagles 50-100 YPG and put too much pressure on young QBs in any event. An old T style backfield with frequent shifts would at least give Rettig better looks at the D. But, even though Tranquil has been hamstrung in his ability to run more complicated packages, I wonder just how immaginative he really is. The O looked like there was little thought given to it.

    HA.  OKKKKKKKKKKKKKK.  Rettig doesn't have that swagger and self image because he was ranked 3 spots down from Boisture and that is why Spaz would have started Boisture instead of Shinskie but wouldn't do it with Rettig.  Hahahaha.  Some of you folks live in an alternate reality.
