    [QUOTE]Never been to a BC game however, with the confined and prehistoric facilities, and team losses piling up each Saturday, why would one deem BC big time collegiate FSB football? My god “altar boys”   urinating on inhabited property at $54,000/year, such a neighborly act for these Medieval and Ancient History majors! Appears to resemble Fenway Park where you can have a Dog with the reek of urine all over the place?

    Not surprised you've never been to a BC game.

    Have you ever been outside East Hartford?

    I've only been to a Dylan concert there, and it was filled for that, too. Great venue for a concert.

    actually PROVPATS ... I've been at many venues however, it appears you changed your abode, away from Fields Corner and moved onto Blue Hill Ave. Enjoy the good happenings each weekend there between the fireworks in your triple decker, while you screen the blogs for BC negativity! 

    Another home loss for your boys today at the bake & shake gym!
    Does Donahue know the meaning of the term win?

    You keep following me around and I'll keep correcting your "typos."
    figued = Figured
    your = you're or you are
    Dylon =Dylan
    fan no one = fan. No one
    Spend some of the money you saved by not going to BC on a remedial English/typing class.

    [QUOTE]I never cared for the Carrier Dome.  It's way too big for basketball.  I'm old, so I like the smaller, dumpy arenas actually.  Not a huge fan of Conte, it's dumpy but not that small.  I liked the Roberts Center better.  I love the Cage out in Amherst, but then that's where I first watched college hoops back in the 70's.  First time I ever saw Jim Calhoun, in fact,  was there when he was still leading NU.  The Mullin Center is okay, it would be better if, you know, it was actually filled with people. I've never been to Storrs, so no idea what the town or their arena is like.  Hartford is the only place I've seen hoops down there, and it's the usual City Arena, nothing special, nothing terrible either. I imagine every on campus game is sold out, yes? In Greater Boston the Agganis is hands-down the best.  And they serve beer, woo-woo! Only thing missing is top notch hoops.

    No ConnU does not sell out every game. Their pitiful OOC schedule is usually an easy ticket. Only the Big East games fill up.

    Re: Storrs CT

    SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Jack Cooley scored 17 points and grabbed 10 rebounds Saturday night as Notre Dame upset No. 1 Syracuse 67-58 and handed the Orange their first loss after 20 straight victories.

    Fans stormed the court after the Irish's rousing victory. It was the eighth time Notre Dame has beaten a No. 1 team -- that ties for fourth-most all-time, with North Carolina having the most with 12.

    The Orange (20-1, 7-1) played without starting center Fab Melo, who did not make the trip and will not play Monday against Cincinnati.

    Without Melo in the middle, the 6-foot-9, 248-pound Cooley was a major force for Notre Dame (12-8, 4-3) and the Irish won the rebound battle 38-25.

    Melo had started all 20 of the Orange's first games, was their leading rebounder with 5.7 a game, averaged 7.2 points and three blocks. School officials gave no explanation why the talented center did not make the trip. C.J. Fair started for the Orange.

    James Southerland scored 15 points for Syracuse, which shot just 34 percent and had its lowest scoring game of the season. Scott Martin added 13 for Notre Dame, which hit 50 percent of its field-goal attempts.

    Southerland's 3-pointer with 53.9 seconds left brought the Orange to within 62-56 before the Irish held on as Jerian Grant sank four free throws in the final 32 seconds.

    It was the first time the Irish have beaten a top-ranked team since 1987 when they defeated North Carolina, also in South Bend. One of the Irish's most dramatic victories over a No. 1 came in 1974, when they stopped UCLA's 88-game winning streak by 71-70.

    Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim was denied his 877th career victory, which would have put him in sole possession of fourth place among Division I men's coaches.

    Notre Dame led in the first half by as many as 18 and was up 35-23 at the half, shooting 54.4 percent and holding the Orange to 2.6 (8-for-18). Syracuse was only 4-of-13 from the 3-point line and was beaten on the boards 20-13 as Notre Dame seemed to be half step quicker.

    Syracuse got off to a better second-half start and whittled the lead to eight less than three minutes in. But Martin hit another 3-pointer for the Irish as the shot clock was winding down and Cooley -- benefiting from Melo's absence -- bulled his way in for a layup to restore the lead to 12. Cooley then dropped in two free throws and Martin again sank a 3-pointer and the Irish were rolling with a 17-point lead.

    The Orange then went on a 9-2 run and Kris Joseph's 3-pointer made it a 10-point game with 7:43 to go. Syracuse again cut it to eight before Cooley roared down the court for a dunk with just over five minutes left.

    Triche's three-point play with 2:24 left cut it to seven as the Orange made a final run.

    Pat Connaughton, inserted into the Irish starting lineup, had a pair of 3s in the early going and Notre Dame bolted to an 11-2 lead.

    Notre Dame kept up the long-range accuracy, making four of its first six attempts. And when Eric Atkins grabbed a rebound and went the length of the floor for a layup, the Irish were up 21-10 as the fans at Purcell Pavilion went wild.

    And without Melo in the middle, the Irish were all over the boards with an early 13-4 advantage.

    Atkins picked up his third foul with 9:04 left, but Jerian Grant's 3-pointer gave the Irish a two-touchdown lead at 28-14.

    The Orange missed 14 of their first 19 field-goal attempts and nothing was falling. Tom Knight's left-handed shot in the lane doubled the score, putting the Irish up 32-16.

    Alex Dragicevich's 3-pointer as the shot clock was running down put the Irish up 35-18 with 1:12 left in the half. Dion Waiters then responded with a pair of quick 3-pointers to get the Orange to within 12 at the end of a frustrating first half.

    The 23 points represented the Orange's lowest-scoring half of the season.

    Seriously? You can bark all you want, the fact remains that uscum-storrs doesn't even own a stadium. 

    Question - why won't ND play in East Hartford?  Why will no big name school play at the super fund site? Why wont' Michigan?

    Why?

    I would also ditto this statement to a gloomy school at Chestnut Hill whose athletic program can only recruit displaced "misfits" no top tier programs accept!

    Awesome post Queen.  I'm sure the green font makes you an official subway alum. Anyway, as an officicial subway alum can you opine as to why Notre Dame (the one in Indiana, not West Haven) scoffs at the notion of playing at State of Connecticut Field?

    There are approximately 120 1A and 1AA venues in America.  Have you visited them all?  Have you evaluated all the fields?  Have you even seen 10 college football venues?  15? 20?
    Do you have any idea how stupid a post like this makes you look?  Try using you head and forget this all consuming hatred of all thinks related to Boston College.  You'll live longer and be happier.

    Just stating a fact.  For being such a horrible football program they sure do seem to put an awful lot of players in the NFL.....
