    Eagle fans may want to be hesitant in criticizing ND until we see what they have when we meet.

    King. Please only comment on Big East matters. Bison has become the Brian Hamilton of the (sorry for the small T) Globe - some facts and some almost facts. Hope to see you all in November - will work on the "culchah". I think Domers were referred to as "the unwashed" by another lad. We will shower beforehand. Minnesota is not going to share that NC in 1940, sorry Missouri Mortgage. Cousin did get a good rate at momort.com. Cam on ong, nhieu lam.

    Typical.  You rant like a lunatic when BC fires a coach (oh the horror) or buys some piece of land in Ireland that no one knows, cares about (real estate, oh oh dear) and harp on gambling incidents that happened over 10 years ago.  Yet when Uconn has current incidents of "major" (uconn's own words) recruiting violations and terrible athlete grades and Notre Dame kills an student working for the team we should be "hesitant"?!?! 

    you are quite the hypocrite OAM.

    Experts predict Florida State to win the ACC with Nebraska crushing FSU in the Orange Bowl. We all are still looking for BC in any FSB poll ranking?


    UCONN NCAA NATIONAL CHAMPIONS!

    You big Husky you!! Why the obsession w/ Flutie U? Why aren't you castigating Edsall for abandoning his Dawgs in favor of TurtleTown?
    Why are you not up in arms w/ the tawdry aspects of UCon b'ball (Psst, wanna buy a "hot" lap-top cheap?)." Nat'l Chumps" at what cost to every graduate whose diploma is be-smirched while the admin looks the other way.
    Yeah, great bragging rights in "arf-arf" land...

    Band Box? One outing in UCon land was enough for this scrivener. Bags of urine, language that would make a dock-worker blanch & then run to cover as your bus is pelted. Let's assume these are not all Dawg-grads but where do these Nutmeg numbsculls come from??
    BTW, how many schools were panting for a Paul Pasqualoni to lend credibility to a floundering program? Break out the life preservers, Sandy.

    Yes, so ONE preseason, before a snap has been played game, says that FSU will win the ACC and then get crushed by nebraska meaning the ACC is no good and BC is worse....

    totally....

    Re: What are Realistic Expectations for the BC Football team

    It's really sad to look in on this blog and see how many trolls are here spending valuable time bashing BC on it's own thread. The simple fact of the matter is that we are discussing a game, what used to be just an extracurricular activity. Nothing more. ND and Husky.... get your own houses in order before bashing others. ND, you have nothing to say now that Our Lady has admitted they are now lowering their academic and disciplinary standards to field a more competitive team... look to see your graduation rates take a deep dive.
    Here are a few facts that some of you never mention.
    1)FBS football is nothing more than a cheap minor league for the NFL, and College Basketball is nothing more than a cheap Bush league for the NBA. Until those issues are addressed then there is no hope in even touching the corruption in the institutions involved.
    2)Tom O'Brien left BC stating he could never bring BC to the next level, then BC won more games in a season than it did with him there.
    3) BC will probably never be a National Champion, Neither will UConn, their appearance in a BCS game was looked upon as a joke by most of the Media, then they went and proved the pundits right.
    4) 11 wins is the high end for any BC team. This year 8 wins is the ceiling, with Harris ailing and half their secondary missing.
    5) Only about 2 dozen teams ever have a legit shot at the National Championship and most of us know the names by heart. The thing is that they rose to or were at prominence when the TV era began, before that teams like Fordam, Army and the like were legitimate contenders, today they can't play in the same division.
    6)The bowl system will continue to make the game smell like raw sewerage at high noon as School administrators are treated to the same benefits that Miami players are being sanctioned for. Time to cut bait, kill the Bowls and institute a playoff system, 32 team smash mouth single elimination. No questions asked, no shared titles, no titles vacated decades later on a whim, just winning it on the field. So what if the finalists play 17 games, it's not as though finals really mean anything at schools like Alabama, FSU or Mississippi State.... or ND now. And as far as the schedule being too long... this is supposed to be the premier fotball level, the FCS has a playoff and there are about a dozen states where their high school champions play 17, seems as though the BCS is a let down for these kids.
    In the end though, it's a game, chill out.

    Some of your points were excellent and well taken. There are several people on this thread that are either mentally impaired or possibly immature adolescents who seem to thrive on being complete idiots. 

    I am certain that there are plenty of folks like yourself who only want to engage in quality discussions about the football & basketball teams. 

    Unfortunately, these few idiots (you know who you are) will go to great lengths to sabotage anything constructive which is posted on these threads. Similar to you, I have also suggested that these clowns just start their own thread in order to feed off of each others negativity. Based on the way they continually respond,it is obvious that their primary agenda is light years different than the rest of us.  

    Up to now, I have only seen one of them (Long putter) start his own posting. I have also made it a point to never respond, no matter what ridiculous stuff is on there, because those particular post are for people who think in a similar fashion.

    Re: What are Realistic Expectations for the BC Football team

    Back on topic, a few concerns:

    1. Offense - a new coordinator and an injured Harris, it may take a few games to get the act together.

    2. Defense - very concerned about depth here.  This will be either a springboard for Spags to prove his recruiting & development ability to his strengths (defense)...or the beginning of his decline. 

    Six or seven wins is realistic, hoping for better.

    Back off topic: I wish BC would schedule Conn as often as they do ND so the husky troll and the ND queen would both have something legitimate to say, that is if they were capable of legitimacy.

    Great post athos16 however, some errors need to be articulated and corrected.

    First, Congrats to the NY Yankees and the NY Giants for coming into town and going out winners!

    With that said, Catholic Universities whether BC, ND, Scranton, John Carroll,  or Stonehill will never achieve their glory years. Unfortunately, BC has never achieved none of the former other than the Flutie Hail Mary some 27 years ago. BC is just that a Catholic University in an age where religious affiliation seem to be an impediment for progress in NCAA athletics for today's athletes. 

    BC is a unknown Nationally as a Football or Basketball powerhouse program where Universities generate the big dollars. Coupled with a very weak program, poor head coaching, a very poor Athletic Director with no vision, you have Boston College an also ran which cannot compete in securing top tier talent from the States' of Texas, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, and California.
     
    Nationally BC is doing what it does do best scheduling opponents whose programs are pretty much the same. Give the fans, alums , students a Saturday afternoon game in the Northeast and they think their witnessing big time NCAA football held hostige by very poor athletic venues with no room to expand. (Conte & Alumni)

    Further, the ACC is not one of the elite Football conferences as it faces  challanges, probation and the lurking of the SEC after it better football programs (FSU).

    It is what it is only BC Football!

    Looking forward to see the Red Sox PATS & BC take it on the chin this season! But, I would not put BC in the PATS category BC has never won anything?

    athos 16,

    You aver that ND lowers its admissions rate to field a more competitive team.

    Assume, for the moment, that you are correct - though you've offered nothing to show that you are.

    Even if they did, however, did their President try to suppress that policy?

    Nope - but ours did.

    BC hires Jack Connors of Hill Holliday to step up there sorry attendance at Alumni. Massive advertising campaign to promote attendance drop off at the sand box! Scheduling Stony Brook in 2012 will promote the local interest beyond their Route 128 mapquest locale for directions to Alumni Field.

    Fly-Boy: Glory years? Scranton ("Dunder Mifflin Award winner"), Stonehill(given up on that "ND of the East?)...surely you jest!
    ..."religious affiliation...an impediment for progress for today's athletes." Discuss graduation rates vs. factories; not likely the majority will ease into the NFL.
    "BC unknown nationally? Maybe you had too many jumps; did the chute always open?
    That "poor AD" extricated us out of the BE into a viable ACC w/ peer schools; that's called "vision."
    Instead of using the Yankee logo (makes you appear "brighter?"); why not your HS emblem where there's a connection.

    What does Texas A&M leaving the Big 12 have to do with the ACC or the Big Least ? You usually do a great job of being incoherent but that takes the cake.

    Why do don't you try an pump us up about Huskies Football ? Instead of always diverting the attention away form your favorite school.
