Wednesday--January 30, 2013

The Eagles blog "BC Interruption" looks at the Big 10's move to a 9 or 10 league slate. BC could have troubles signing home and home contracts with Big 10 teams in the future.

How about an annual series with UMass? The Eagles were #65 in total attendance last year. A Minutemen-Eagles series would help both athletic departments. Back a couple of years ago, I did a question-and-answer series with one of the BC blogs. One of my questions was that I was surprised how well BC football was doing in the ACC. Given BC's high academic requirements, I had expected the Eagles to be another Duke or Wake Forest.

A three or four years later, the Eagles seem to be slipping to the bottom of the ACC. A BC-UMass-UConn series would add some New England excitement. And lets face it, BC could use the wins.

Football Scoop has a story on an easy-to-do video promotion that could help with recruiting.

The NCAA banned showing a recruit a locker and a game jersey with his name on it. Why? I have no idea how that could be bad.
