Yup. Flipper chased away a long standing successful, solid coach in TOB, who recruited the players that were around for BCU's best years. He catches lightning in a bottle with Jags, but fires him b/c he knows Jags wants to be anywhere but BCU (and he couldn't recruit - these are his players now), and then hires Tom Selleck's mustache, who I hope they never fire. He fired Skinner in hoops, and that has payed wonderful dividends.
Admittedly, I'm torn. If they fire Flipper, it helps UConn's chances with the ACC. If they keep Flipper, it ensures BCU will continue their nose dive (they've already hit rock bottom, and now they're starting to dig). I guess it's a win either way for UConn fans.
I was probably the only one rooting for BCU. Had they won, it would have confirmed that Florida State needs to worry about their own football program rather than complaining about who the ACC wants to bring in. Of course they lsot to Wake Forest, so they still need to do that, but BC would have been the icing on the cake.
Found this on another board about BC and a recruit on a visit.
road the needham shuttle to the game last night with a visiting recruit and a couple of his people.
that's right, the team makes recruits on visits ride through the backwoods of needham 20 minutes on a beat-up yellow school bus with a driver who's asking the 6 people on the bus if anyone has a gps.
these guys were at the stadium at 6pm and were turned away by BCPD. Apparently someone on the coaching staff said they'd be able to park, but the bcpd guys wouldn't even look at the email the guy had. There was nobody to meet them, no handlers to make sure everything went smoothly on their visit.
they were coming from a visit to UConn where they had valet parking for them at the stadium, and were next on their way to Miami and Florida, where i'm sure he will not have to ride a goshdarn school bus to the game.
they lost the recruit right there, before he even reached the game. Also didn't help that the perception of the program is this season is a disaster:
"that's why you're 1 and 9, when you treat recruits like that"
I swiftly defended my school and mentioned that we had TWO wins, thank you very much, UMass counts.
