In Response to Ideas to Expand/Improve BC Sports
[QUOTE]Hey everyone, I'm a student at BC and I'm writing a paper about steps the admin and AD could take to make BC sports (specifically football) more prevalent on the East Coast. Coming from Chicago, I've noticed that not many people around here care for BC sports, which is strange for me (Chicagoland area is firm ND/Illinois territory). I understand New England is a region completely dominated by pro sports, but I think that there can be a niche for college sports in there. BC is the only major college athletic program in the Boston area (not including Connecticut here, for the record), so I think it's possible for the program to attract the casual NE fans if the admin/AD make the right moves. What do you guys think would help this happen? Besides the program performing well and racking up wins; that's a given. It would probably be difficult to attract people with strong ties to BU, NU, etc because they already dislike BC because of hockey. But I think its definitely possible to get the casual NE fans to support the Eagles. Especially small families who want to go to sporting events- the pro teams's tickets are quickly becoming too expensive, and BC could become a cheaper alternative. Sidenote: that could eventually attract a large fanbase because those kids would grow up with the Eagles, and be loyal. What are your ideas? I actually plan on submitting this paper to the athletic department itself, and do everything I can to promote the ideas in it. I love and care about this school deeply, and I'd do anything to fix the condition it's in now. This thread isn't meant to promote any sort of "BC elitism" that I hear about sometimes. I hate elitists myself. THIS IS MEANT FOR PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY HAVE AN INTEREST IN TALKING BC SPORTS. Donn et all, PLEASE DONT RESUME TO YOUR NORMAL MINDLESS BC BASHING HERE. We already know what you think about BC, so please keep it at that. Please don't let this thread be reduced to the same level as the other ones, I want to actually do something with this paper, and ideas from people who care really help.

I apologize for the deterioration of this discussion, but that's what generally happens. Donnnn will post WHAT HE WANTS, WHEN HE WANTS as he has told me IN ALL CAPS for emphasis, because he's DONNNN, and he knows how to put people in their place while trying to goad them into answering his ridiculous questions, because he's DONNNN, and he has an EXTREMELY LUCKY wife, because he's DONNNN. ND and Cheeroh and postingking are totally brainless, and will post unintelligible nonsense. And so it goes. Since you attend BC, you're obviously smart enough (drumroll, chest-pounding, after all we're the BC CROWD and we're ALL egomaniacal elitists, just ask DONNNN) to separate the wheat from the chaff.
