Ave. 35,709 in 2011. I expect basketball attendance this year is also heading for an all time low. Only 4583 at yesterday game. Ouch!!
What would help them actually would be to have UConn invited to join the ACC. Maybe having a geographical rival would be a step in the rigtht direction.
Both their basketball programs are in an absolute world of hurt. There is simply no reason why top recruits wishing to play ball in the ACC would do so at BC. None. I've been saying this for years.
If UCONN and Rutgers get on firm conference footing with their football programs, BC is toast. They will aspire to be Indiana or Duke.
Its amazing the number of Boston College threads on this garbage message board
It may be a garbage message board (that's left up to personal opinion, I suppose) but it's obviously a garbage message board you apparently care enough to come to.
Frankly, I find it ironic that your argument in a nutshell is that UConn is irrelevant, and yet, you've created an account on their unofficial message board. Ever considered that you might be undermining your entire point by showing up to a message board devoted to an irrelevant subject matter?
you got a good ct commit for 13-issacs. let me help you understand why though, he has family from the boston area and iether grew up there for some time or at some point lived there and wants to return there. uconn isn't going to win a battle when the kid wants to go somewhere thats not in our hands. oh and he is prob a top 3 recruit for CT next year. He will get 3* from espn and scout and 4 from your boy on rivals. Boeing Brown will **** stars on that kid next year, just remeber that you clown. There are 1 or 2 other guys next year that will have the same ranking as issacs. he is a solid recruit and a good get, but please...
some 1 else can handle the rest of that mess. but really have fun hanging hockey banners like any1 cares.
Yea, they've were ranked #2 in the country since the switch, but I guess thats irrelevant. Its amazing the number of Boston College threads on this garbage message board, be a little more envious. It will be interesting to see what yukons attendance does when they make a switch, back to 1AA where they will still be mediocre.
And how does a regional rival do anything for attendance at Boston College? 1 game against THE WORST TEAM IN THE WORST CONFERENCE IN AMERICA will not help attendance at BC. Sueconn at BC did nothing for attendance when they came in the past (and shockingly UConn was better then they are now and still didn't belong on the same field) and will do nothing now. PP is going to sink this program worse than Spaz is sinking Boston Colleges (simply because BC can recruit itself as a GOOD school and not a mediocre regional state school in the northeast.)
The delusion on this board is comical. The way you all talk you would think you have a product on the field that means anything. sueconn has never been relevant and never will be anything of significance. You tied for the worst record in your conference and have the worst recruiting class in the NNNBE. The future looks bright. Keep building that fence pawl (even though you already lost the states top 2013 recruit ... to Boston College) Enjoy that AQ because its gone in 2014. Keep hanging those women's bb baners because clearly EVERYONE CARES.
