BC should have a balloon festival each year to coincide with the football season kickoff, they're so full of hot air!

Every year we hear hoe theyre SO great and soar to new heights, just to fall back to earth, wounded eagles.

And to say "UMass doesn't have any players worthy of a statue"...I offer Greg Landry and Milt Morin for starters!

UMass 17-BC 14
