Old-fashioned Sports

Old-fashioned Sports

The other sports all suffer from similar issues: facilities, talent, geography and traditional. That situation has one major parallel with the Eagles’ current issues: Henning replaced Tom Coughlin, theoretically taking control of a team on the rise, Indianapolis Colts Men's but like Spaziani, he failed to match his predecessor’s success. Someone like O’Brien, who altered the entire culture of the program, would constitute a drastic change - especially after Spaziani, who seems befuddled by the program’s steep decline over the last 36 months. Not only that, but they lost to Mexico in the U.S.and in a stadium where Mexican national team jerseys far outnumbered (according to people who were there) U.S. The Spectrum was the stage for many of my sports memories, a place where I went many times with my father, who has been dead for 25 years. In a few years I could see us winning the men. But even then BC is going to have to earn an auto bid because it would take a miracle for us to get one of the few at large bids. Boston College is suffering from a deep-seeded malaise; the Eagles have seen their win total drop in each of the last four years, bottoming out with a four-win finish a year ago.


For example, we could have Nick Saban as our football coach and I still think we would be more likely to win a National Championship in basketball. NORFOLK, Virginia - Six Florida A&M University football players were named to the Preseason All-Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference team during the MEAC Football Media Luncheon here Friday afternoon at the Norfolk Waterside Marriott Hotel. First I think our Women's Ice Hockey team is close to a breakthrough. Of the revenue sports, I think women's basketball has the best chance to win a national championship. While less likely, I still think the men could win a National Championship. Relax: Relax yourself while spending time with the family and friends. All at a time where paying for college has become prohibitively expensive and where the average kid has to take out a staggering amount of loans that she/he will struggle to repay and cause him or her to change his life plans -- by delaying buying a house or a car and by having kids -- all of which are having, and will continue to have, profound effects on the future of the country (which now is also the world's best democracy).


We've had past success in Cross Country. Most games with score use it as a quantitative indicator of success in the game, and in competition, a goal is often made of attaining a better score than one's opponents in order to win. And both can stake respective claims to a certain measure of success. "He has a good work ethic and can run all day," Bilas continued. Using terms and words like "befuddled" and "mishandled" is never a good sign. In digging into UMass's football potential, Presnap Read captured the feeling that most of us share: "malaise." If the New York Times writers have a good feel for the mood of BC fans, why doesn't our Athletic Department? Football is not going to happen. What the institution must do, however, is to move forward with its football program without further lament from current players or former players, most of whom are dismayed to disillusioned to devastated, but none of whom will help the process by arguing about the penalties the school incurred or Coach Paterno's legacy. While there were other factors in the attendance issues for the Spring Game, the black eye it is bringing to the program doesn't help perception.


Hearing a drive-time talk show host call his callers idiots frequently (as one so-called luminary in Philadelphia did for a while) is not appealing. It had me thinking this might be one of his "on" days. With the depth of female talent in the northeast, there is no reason BC women's basketball couldn't be one of the elite. The key there is recruiting and fortunately BC has shown the ability to bring in top running talent. The survive and advance aspect allows for a team with a talent disadvantage to get hot and make a run (see Butler, VCU and George Mason). This is a team that collects six wins per season against dreadful division opponents, and the other NFC East playoff team (the Eagles) was humiliated by the Bucs on Sunday. Had to sit out a season. B.C. hasn’t been this devoid of hope entering a season since the mid-1990s - before Tom O’Brien rebuilt the program, the Eagles spent three years scuffling under Dan Henning.
