BC Bowl Bound

I am thrilled that our Eagles closed out the season with 2 straight wins.    But let's not get carried away by a 6-6 record.    Examine the ACC record and we see a 2-6 record.    The other four wins were over cupcakes Wagner, Buffalo, UMass and UConn.     And to say that Coach Addazio has worked wonders by getting BC back to a bowl is a joke.    Change is needed now.  Let the PJ Fleck era begin!

Boston College Football and Basketball - Changes Must Be Made Now!

We are the laughing stock of the ACC and the country in football and basketball.   The following article says it all.

Enough is enough!. Blow it up and start again. How can it be justified that our football team has been outscored 202-24 against VT, Clemson, Louisville and FSU this year? That's an average score of 50-6! I've had 5 seasons tickets and a tailgate spot for years. I'm not going through this again next year unless changes are made NOW.
