    Hats Off to UConn & Coach Calhoun

    In the 3 years that the Big East has gone to a 16-team tournament, until now no school had managed to do the nearly impossible: win 5 games in 5 days to earn the crown.

    Last night, UConn did that Herculean feat.

    Well done, Huskies and Coach Calhoun!

    Calhoun has no class.

    I never heard him give any credit to his predecessor, the illustrious Don Perno who brought uconn to the brink of Big East greatness.

    Totally lacking in class.

    You people are pathetic.

    How sad that you are so insecure that you can't recognize an unprecedented basketball achievement.

    And you wonder why alma mater is detested in some other quarters.

    Like your poster handle that was a professional comeback well played!

    "You people are pathetic. How sad that you are so insecure that you can't recognize an unprecedented basketball achievement."

    @ Ye Ol Crumudgeon you are the last person in this universe that should mutter how pathetic other posters are. Try reading your signature LoL!

    Bye bye screen name now go back to the Jesuits and sulk and say that pontifical Hail Mary where you might light a candle and rant to the almighty on BC's continued lack of recognition by the NCAA!


    UCONN ROCKS!

    Good, great, Calhoun did something no one else has done.  Well done.  He's still suspended for the first 3 games of next season.....interesting how you rail on BC for every small wrong you percieve yet have no issues with Pearl or Calhoun!....

    UConn deserves recognition for that great run.  I hope they keep up the pace next week.

    As for BC, not disappointed, they didn't deserve selection, and most reasonable fans didn't expect it.  I don't know why they're being discussed in the UConn thread, but whatever, throw your stones lpga.

    Calhoun and UConn don't belong in the tournament. The only reason they are there is ratings. Coach calls high-school recruit during blackout period!!!!

    Lot worse than some 20-year old kid taking a gold chain by some Hartford scum-bag!!

    Notice who Calhoon fired, the two guys filling out his orders!

    Congratulations Jim Calhoun!
     
    Love to see these BC nobodies who accomplished nothing in their NCAA debacles all year rant, and rant, and rant regarding the respect BC never attains. 

    Great to see Ryan rock and roll'en down to Houston, where his beloved BC sits back dreaming of the perhaps' and somedays' which never come!

    See, here you go again making up things we do and then mocking us for them.  No one on here has ever ranted about any respect that BC doesn't get.  Not one single time has that happened.  No one complained when BC didn't make the NCAAs, no one complained BC didn't make a better bowl.  No one cried BC had to go to the midwest for hockey.  You are a lying idiot. 

    Who makes things up and then makes fun of it?  That's an exercise in crazy...

    Therein lies the complacency that dooms alma mater to football and basketball obscurity.

    The sheep here take what The Gang of Two give them and say thank you.

    And then pretend that everything is fine.

    Peace

    I disagree.  I think I take a realistic view.  BC graduates 90% of it's athletes and they don't let any athlete a coach may want in.  So from the start that puts us at a disadvantage to the vast majority of Div I schools.  Am I wrong?  We are also much much smaller so we don't have the ability to have a 60,000 stadium and fill it.  We also, for many reasons that are in and out of BCs control, have a small local following.  As the saying goes, "it is what it is".  They are not built, nor do they want to be built, to contend with teams that are constant national title hopefuls. 

    However, in the time the "gang of 2" has been around, we have put countless players in the NFL and the football team reached #2 in the country and at one time held the bowl win streak title.  Basketball has been as good as its ever been, has sent more than a few to the NBA and had 1 or 2 legit final 4 contenders even though they didn't make it. 

    You make it seem like since these two took over its been nothing but doom and gloom.  the reality is, the last 15 years of BC sports has been, by far, the most successful 15 years of BC sports they've ever had on an overall basis.

    You can hate the gang of 2 for your own reasons, but when you try to equate it to the misery of BC sports you are waaaaaaaaaaay off base no matter what you try and say.

    Hey, ScreenNameGoesHere,


    ND GOT INTO the tourney.

    And THEY never drew less than 3,000 fans to a final home game, did they?

    To say nothing of the fact that under the current regime, The Institute has NO chance to beat them in hoops.

    Peace
