I am always amused when a writer claims indifference to something then subsequently takes the time to write a lengthy article critiquing something they are supposedly indifferent towards. The writer s more »
Comment on: 'In ACC, BC hasn’

dkkk: I am at a loss re: your comment above. The article is about BC's move to the ACC. A move where BC has been just as competitive in the major sports as it was in the BE. It is a move where BC is n more »

Mystic: IMO, this is more the case for BB than FB. In BB, there were the Georgetown's and the Villanova's and the St. John's that I am sure BB fans miss. For FB, however, (and I am a long-time FB seas more »

SJS1214: Come on man, you are cherry picking your stats to support your agenda. Most of criticism about BC's on-the-field performance relies on carefully selected facts over just the past two years. T more »

Dkkk: you obviously didn't attend the one game BC played @ UCONN in 2003. Beer bottles thrown at the BC student busses, general verbal abuse to BC families. I think you would be hard pressed to find a more »

Embalmer: your comment about BC playing "at least 2 cupcakes a year" doesn't make any sense. Go check out how many "cupcakes" per year the top college programs play OOC. I think you will find that BC' more »

PragmaticAmerican: A couple of points in our "back and forth" on this issue: If you go back and read my posts, I never said that BC should purge the rest of the collection not having anything to do wi more »

Thanks. SanDogBrewin. Your comments are right on target, as usual. This thread provides a fascinating glimpse as to the alternate reality in which many of these BE/Uconn fans exist. Given the differen more »

Not surprising...the anti BC crowd and the BC-obsessed Uconn fans are out today. The hypocrisy here is stunning! Uconn fans complaining about BC's recruiting tactics? Wow! Didn't Uconn just a few week more »

BC's AD has repeatedly stated that "BC is an ACC team and will be an ACC team as long as there is an ACC." The BC fanbase is thrilled with the ACC. There is absolutly NO desire on the part of anyone i more »

Longputter: I understand your point. I would not disagree with you that BC's record of alumni giving is low compared to ND. However, that's all relative. BC's level of giving is low compared to ND and more »

Longputter, I am also a BC alum and couldn't disagree more with your arguments. To your 4 points: 1. BC's President DOES call the shots. Ummm...the President is GDF's boss, what would you expect him t more »
