    not sure i need to go any further than my subject line?? in either case; as the article notes, the FB and hoops team are neither BCS bowl or Final Four calibre. and while BC alums think their academics are on par with Notre Dame; US News says William & Mary have surpassed them….

    From the fan of a team that has never beaten BC on the gridiron nor in academic rankings. Enjoy getting taken behind the woodshed by ND…oops, you already have…nice away, away, not even playing in CT schedule you guys worked there.

    The switch (to ACC) was unpopular with some alumni and fans…. Oh really Jason, what alumni might those be? I don’t think you know anything about BC.

    Horrible article. Why would you imply that Flip is a hypocrite and then directly show why he isn’t when you quote him talking about recruiting issues with Jags looking around, a job with ADs do not do?

    The agenda was clear with the Barber quotes, a big check-writer who had a mancrush on coach O’Brien. Flip told him to go pound sand when he whined like a sissy when TOB was allowed to walk.

    95% of BC alums under the age of 90 love this ACC move.

    GDF is guilty of one bad hire in Jags. We’ll see on Spaz.

    The current Forbes has BC ranked as 16th best college, just ahead of Northwestern, Bowdoin and Vassar.

    really, john? you’re actually going to cite the forbes rankings? the same poll that listed centre college (KY) ahead of BC at #14?? the same poll that listed dartmouth at #98??? at least the USNWR rankings have some standing in the academic world. the best use for the forbe’s poll is in a bird cage or litter box – it is utter garbage. sadly, i’m not surprised a bc student/alum would cite it.

    The only thing that’s obvious, Mark, is your pathetic jealousy of BC. Their students, alumni, and fans don’t have answer to your childish accusations. The school’s application rate speaks for itself.
