    Academically, this small College in rural Mt. Carmel, CT has a great Law School, and also a good Medical School serving the metro New Haven area, and will give YALE a run for academic achievement at half the cost.

    And what does BC have to do with this thread?  You BC guys really need to stop overcompensating all the time. It's pretty embarrassing to watch.

    Duke University well represented on U.S. Olympic diving team!

    Harvard Well-Represented at 2012 Olympics!

    CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Ten athletes and coaches with Harvard ties will represent five countries at the 2012 Olympic Games in London, England, with competition beginning Friday, July 27 and continuing through Sunday, Aug. 16.

    From the group, nine athletes are comprised of six rowers, one swimmer, one women’s basketball player and one track & field athlete.

    Additionally, Tim Murphy, the Ulen-Brooks Endowed Coach for Harvard Men's Swimming and Diving, serves as the head coach of the United State open water swim team.

    Harvard has one current student-athlete in the Games as Temi Fagbenle will represent the host nation in women’s basketball.

    Among former student-athletes, Caryn Davis ’05, Will Newell ’10 and Henrik Rummel ’09 will all row for Team USA while Brodie Buckland ’06 rows for Australia and Malcolm Howard ’05 for Canada. Samyr Laine ’06 will represent Haiti in the triple jump and Alex Meyer ’10, the first American to qualify for this summer’s Games in any sport, will compete in the open water swimming event.

    Harvard has been represented at every modern Olympic Games. This year’s contingent is the most since the 2004 Athens Games when Harvard had 13 participants.

    All told, Harvard has had 223 Olympians (athletes, coaches and administrators) representing 14 countries and an astounding 344 different events.

    BC A.K.A. LOSEVILLE
    STRIKES OUT YET AGAIN!
    All smoke no delivery!

    Didn't think BC would be involved with anything realistic, other than throwing BS where it's irrelvant.

    Hope ya'all ready for some more 'Bama football come September 1?

    Quinnipiac currently sits at number 1 in the rankings as I type this post.  That's great,  and reinforces my earlier notion that moving from Quinnipiac to UMass-Amherst would have been a step down for Rand.   The only thing UMA had over Q was their HE affliation, and that is a big deal.  But as this season shows, not necessary to make the big time either.

     

     




     

    AD is a BC boy there Slim, Jack MacDonald, former AD at Denver.  Has done much with the Q Bobcats.

    Ah.  I knew a Jack McDonald who played hockey, so I just looked him up. Wrong guy, but I do know this McDonald too.  Not personally, but I was a distance runner myself in the 70's.  This Jack was the best in New England at the time and he was always in the paper back then.  Yup, that entire program down there, the facilities, etc,  are all on the upswing.  

    A great AD makes all the difference.  I'm a UMass alumnus,  ours is just average, I think.   And that, arguably is a step up from what BC has.   Other than hockey I'm not seeing alot of great things coming out of Chestnut Hill these days. 




    Slim: Not the Hockey player; he was the first BC athlete to run a sub 4.00 minute mile... A very good athlete in track.  He got fired as AD at DU, for polical reasonings ($$$$) not elevating the program to its' potential, and has turned it around at the Q.

    Also, UML has an outstanding goalie from the Ukraine that is worth watching and is very good in net. UML is a sleeper, and has come a long was since Bruce Crowder left for NU many years ago and subsequently was fired from that program......

    I'm a BC alumnus and I think UMass did a really stupid thing moving to the MAC for football and made an even dumber decision by playing home football games 93 miles from Amherst in Foxboro, and lost $700,000 of the state's money.  And you're saying that your AD (who has been there since '04) is average and a step UP from the new BC AD, who has been in since September of last year? Please explain.

    Perhaps Buffoon College should consider America East as UMass Lowell in basketball with Wonder boy Donahue at the helm. At least in America East Buffoons would have a winning record?

    Enjoy your last win of the season against WF troll... next four games count in the L column ,and as my predication comes to fruition, Buffoons will be 12-18 by seasons end!

    An exemplary record, for a NCAA D1 Basketball program?

    Explanation Buffoon!

    BTW: Jack MacDonald brought Walter Dix, a world class 200m sprinter to the Q Track  & Field program, and out to the Drake Relays. Been out to the relays several times in Des Moines and they are growing this program along with wrestling thanks to MacDonald's leadership.

    I'm not a fan of the football move. But let's get one thing clear right away - this is NOT the "State's money".    Student fees are paying for it, so unless you're supporting a UMA student it's not costing you anything.

    Personally I think they waited far too long to make the move.  The mid 90's, when the BB was at it's peak and the FB team was competing for the 1AA title, that was the time. Once they finally did pull the trigger there were not that many paths to get there.  If not the MAC then where would you suggest they go?  It's not like they had a slew of invitations to pick from.  

    Then there was the Stadium.  If they waited to get that up to standards another decade would have gone by.  The Gillette move was actually pretty shrewd,  getting the Krafts to go along.   It's temporary.   They'll recoup some money,  they've volunteered to be the sacrificial lamb to ND and FL in the upcoming years, with 7 figure payoffs as the reward.  McCuthcheon did an okay job navigating these tricky waters.

    I prefer to look closer to Campus.   Three new athletic faciilities are scheduled to open in the next 2 years, in addition to the FB stadium upgrades.    A new Campus Rec facility opened 2 years ago.   Many of the minor sports programs are doing well.   LAX was ranked as high as #1 last year,  the BB team went to the NIT Final Four and has a local guy with strong ties to the school leading the program, which promises some much needed stability.  The hockey team still has unrealized potential,  hiring the VT coach migt pan out,  but they gave Calhoun more than enough time to make some waves and he failed.

    Looking towards Chesnut Hill I see a nice hockey program,  entirely thanks to York.   A BB team that's now ducking the tougher local teams.  A FB team in decline.  So, what is the BC AD doing?


    Thank you. It is a "nice" hockey program, with 4 national championships since 2001. As far as the AD, I'd rather not get into a debate about whose is better. Brad Bates has been at BC since Oct. 9. Four months. As for what he's been doing, he hired a new football coach. As a season ticket holder since way back in '77 I'm more interested in the BB program, and I like what Donahue is doing. He recruited 2 terrific freshman guards so far and I like their style of play. They lost two tough 1 point games to the #2 and #3 teams in the country. I'm still hoping he can recruit some size, so recruiting, as always, is a key. As for ducking the local tougher teams, I want them to play UMass, Providence, continue with Harvard, and even add in BU and NU. I think they scheduled Bryant as a favor to Tim O'Shea who played at BC in the 80's and was a long-time assistant under Skinner at URI and BC. I thnk the decision to drop UMass came from the former AD, although I don't really know who makes the final scheduling decisions.

    BB is my primary interest as well.   I suppose I still haven't gotten over the cancellation of the series with BC.  It meant more to UMass,  but show me a BC fan who would prefer a mauling of Bryant over a battle with UMass.  If they're doing O'Shea a favor fine, then dump a Florida International to make room for a long time rival. 


    Hmmm.  A civil dialogue.  When's the last time one of these was seen in this forum? 

     


    I'm with you. They need to dump Bryant, UNH, Dartmouth, and Florida International. Definitely schedule UMass on a regular basis, and I'd like to see them play a Jesuit rival like Georgetown or Gonzaga or St. Louis. They don't gain anything by playing the aforementioned 4. They'll want a lot more money from me though, for me to have any input.
