So Many Awkward GDF Moments

+

Maybe this is old news, maybe it's not.....but this is a poorly-thought-out made-by-BC video of GDF honing his acting chops. So many awkward moments....let's try to name them all! (h/t to my buddy who forwarded me this link and several other alumni notes making the rounds expressing outrage over GDF's performance)

Three More Transfers from MD: Is This Scenario Waiting for BC?

20

"What was expected is now official: Maryland quarterback Danny O’Brien, along with offensive lineman Max Garcia and linebacker Mario Rowson will leave the program. All three requested and have been granted their releases from the football program." Sure, the BC locker room is not nearly as septic as the MD field house, and the dynamic on the team is very different, but besides loosing top recruits, are we moving towards a point where we see an exodus ourselves? Taking a page from the GDF guide to leadership, Edsall placed a condition on O'Brien's release - he can't transfer to Vanderbilt, where the coach that originally recruited him to MD now works. Stay Classy.

"Former University of Miami football players who allegedly received Cadillac Escalades, jewelry, party invites, champagne, lap dances and the services of prostitutes and other gratuities courtesy of a now-imprisoned athletic-booster-run-amok won’t have to talk about it in a bankruptcy pleading. Nor will they have to give anything back."

Miami Herald reports that UM has agreed to pay back $83,000 in illegal donations.

Would Colleges Be Better Off Without Football? (The Atlantic)

8

"Everything we think we know about college football's impact on students' grades, graduation rates, rankings, and school finances adds up to this: Football might be bad for some colleges" Very interesting article that includes, of course, the Hail Mary and the ensuing 30% bump in freshman applications BC saw the following year. Equally interesting finding that public universities that win major bowls or in-state rivalries receive more funding from state legislators...

Spaz Makes Top 10 List: Coaches Who Need a Demotion (BleacherReport.com)

8

Spaz is enjoying a rare top finish....this time with the likes of Randy Edsall and TOB... "There's a good reason why Frank Spaziani was a career assistant coach until 2009. Each of his three seasons as the head coach at Boston College, the Eagles have deteriorated to this season's 4-8 record. Spaziani is considered a solid defensive coordinator, so maybe BC could move him back and go find a better fit for head coach. His overall record is 20-19, and that includes a 2006 win in the Meineke Car Care Bowl when the Eagles eked out a 25-24 win over Navy."

Virginia Tech football kicker, 2 others face felony charges

Virginia Tech place-kicker Cody Journell and two other Blacksburg men charged with breaking into the home of a Hokies basketball player...they said stole marijuana from [them]. almost as classy as brandishing a handgun at McDonalds

A Tough Look at Randy Edsall's Job Performance...

3

Yesterday The Washington Post published an article by sports writer Eric Prisbell that succeeded in asking the kind of tough questions of a local football program (Maryland) that I wish a major media outlet would attempt to ask about BC. The article is balanced and does not attempt to editorialize either side of the story, yet takes into careful consideration the concern of the fans, students, and players' parents...
