BC Recruiting video

A bit long, but I enjoyed it. Seems like they have upgraded in the editing department too.

A few things:

1) that was awesome and I am a cynical asshole who hates almost anything targeting people younger than myself.
2) while this could be an aberration it appears that the staff/administration understands the value of selling the product
3) 5 IN THE LAST 5 is an incredible, incredible figure that should be the fucking title.
4) remove the nerds studying in bapst
5) this is such a step above: Image

Great video. Could have used some William Green and Romo but since they're targeting HS kids I uderstand why they didn't make the cut.

The good: it shows how incredibly easy a sell BC should be for most students (even without the academic piece).
The bad: it unfortunately does not conclusively tell the viewer whether or not the football program "will protect this house."

That's a high quality piece of propaganda right there. Kudos to the new administration.

A few observations:

1) All those different uniform combinations has to confuse the fuck out of a recruit.
2) Herzy was awesome.
3) I forgot how good the first TD pass by Matt Ryan was in the 2007 VT game.
4) Fuck you Spaz.
5) The Dazzler is a meathead.

First five minuytes of that video might be the best collection of BC football highlights I've ever seen.

All the big highlights are in there... i can't think of one that is missing.

You sure? Oregon uses their 50,000 or whatever combinations as a selling point.

There were parts of that clip that could easily be an upgrade to the typical national commercial BC shows during a game on ESPN.

Showcase Boston, showcase the awesome buildings at BC. Showcase how good we are at sports.

Done.

The only thing that could improve the video, IMHO, is a shot of Spaz and Gene being waterboarded Zero Dark Thirty style.

Two points:
- one of the lyrics for one of the rap songs said "back to the MAC". Didn't like the irony in that.
- its gay to cite 3 division championships, which necessarily includes the one year when we were in a 3 way tie but didn't go to the ACCCG due to the tiebreaker. I though we mocked Yukon or RU for doing something like this.

But a great video no doubt. Would have liked to see more Paul Pete. Was he even in there?

I was hoping Waddle's one handed catch against Penn State was in the video. I have heard a lot about it but haven't seen it.

INT return for TD against undefeated ND in 2002.

Maybe something from our win against an SEC team at the Music City Bowl in 2001.

Paul Pete to Gonazalez at ND.

Hartsell to Grice at Ann Arbor.

Also the short video of Jags tossing an orange to the players chanting, "WE'RE GOING TO THE 'SHIP!"

There's probably a couple more, but this season has made me drink those good memories away.
As long as I'm breathing, I'll sing for the Metro...

Don't think Keeks INT return against Miami was in there either. Awesome video though. Def should have added Jags and "goin to the 'Ship"

I was ready to button up my chinstrap after the first 3 minutes.

Definitely agree with MF73 that the Josh Ott play and PaulPete -> Gonzo have gotta be in there.

But the most glaring omission to me was zero clips of Kiwanuka. (BTW, eff you Boise)

would have liked to have seen the clip of Cowboy Jack yelling "we're gonna go somewhere big" in the locker room after the Flutie Pass.
That gets me fired up everytime I see it.
