From: @TedescoHeights

"One of the most exciting things to me is when you're driving into a stadium and you see the fan base and alumni and tailgating"- Addazio

"What I want to do here with this football program is build a program that you're proud of" - Addazio
"I want you guys to feel like you can watch practice. I want you guys to feel like you can be part of the program." - Addazio
Addazio said he won't be standing on the sidelines "like this"...and then folded his arms and did his best angry Spaz impression
"I'm kind of disappointed. No superfan shirts in here?" - Addazio
Spring game is April 20th
Addazio is reading a poem called "The Oak Tree" now
"It's my job as a head football coach to be the No. 1 recruiter for this football program." Addazio says his goal is to have top ACC class
Addazio says he wants "more exciting" offensive players and wants to attack more on defense
Oh, here's the men's lacrosse question:
"The quicker answer will be answered in about two months when we're done with our strategic plan" - Bates on men's lax
Kind of a round about answers on men's lax. Implied everything is being looked into, but doesn't sound like its being looked into seriously
"I told Brad Bates that I think BC is a sleeping giant" - Addazio
Bates gives the same answer about the strategic plan when asked about indoor practice facility. Sounds like we'll know more in 2 months

Did you guys know that Luke Kuechly and Matt Ryan weren't highly rated recruits? Got another reminder just now
"We have got to create a waiting list for Conte Forum and Alumni Stadium" - Bates says it's ambitious but that is the goal for ticketing

It sounds like fixing ticketing and getting students to the games through rewards and other things is a serious goal for Bates

More parking spaces will be offered. Goal is that every season ticket holder can walk to stadium from spot.

Addazio says goal in non-conference scheduling should be one national opponent, a regional opponent, and "an opportunity for development"
"Does that mean you're going to start recruiting New Mexico?" - student in response to Bates saying scheduling and recruiting go together
"We're going to get back to 7 home games" - Bates

Bates' response to New Mexico question was saying it was best of 3 options when he got here
Bates says BC is planning a lot of events and activities leading up to USC game for West Coast alumns and to get people to fly out there.

Confirmation from Bates that Nova is on Saturday, not Friday

"If we give you those seats we need you to show up bc we are going to do some things that put you right on top of the court" Bates on MBB

Bates made it clear the goal is to change student seating at men's basketball for next season. Plans aren't set yet though.

"I really don't like the 2 quarterback system, but I do like dual-threat quarterbacks" - Addazio. Says right now he's maximizing what BC has

Addazio says he will not call the plays because he doesn't believe the HC can manage the game and call plays, but says he will be involved


"I will not call the plays on either side" - Addazio. Says its his job to say to go for it on fourth down or not, but not the play

Three points for under the bar, one point for under the bar.

Galway was in the Finals last year (Go Tribesmen!) against...Kilarney (?) and I was watching it live at the Thomand Bar in Cork City, where I was working at the time. As time was running out, one of the guy's from Galway hits this really long shot to tie the match. People start going nuts. The announcer starts talking about "Now, on to the replay!"

I thought to myself "Hmm, "replay"...that's a funny word to describe overtime."

Nope, no overtime. When the match ends in a tie....they re-play the entire match a few weeks later!

At the time, they didn't even know when the match would be played. It took them a few days to figure out the schedule.

It is only a one-game championship so imagine in the SuperBowl ended in a tie and instead of going to overtime they played another whole game weeks later.

When I was a kid, I was forced to go to a lot of Irish cultural festivals to support my sister in her step-dancing competitions. It was at one of these festivals that I was introduced to hurling. I saw a guy take a ball to the mouth and he started gushing blood. I had finally found something worth watching at those damn festivals.

They used to do the same thing in soccer. The FA Cup Final for instance, which was pretty much the biggest one-off sporting event in the UK for a long time (really until all the Champions League TV money started pouring in and the Cup became devalued), would be replayed in its entirety if it ended in a draw.

ATL posted that Dazzler mocked Spaz's body language at the event, and the comments have a bunch of :whalepants objecting that Daz isn't "classy" and doesn't get the "BC way." Can these people just shut the fuck up already.

If this is true, then A) I gained a little more respect for the Dazzler, and B) Whalepants suck donkey balls. Everything about the Spaz era should be mocked and used as a guideline of what not to do with the football program. If Daz recognizes that, then Kudos to him.

This.

For all my concerns, skepticism and disappointment over the hire, I like that he is going all-in. He is not setting the bar artificially low. He is talking very much like Jags did. In the past, BC teams have taken on the personality of their coach. Will be interesting to see if that comes to pass again.

I think you may have missed the bait I was referring to, and who it's bait for.

The golf ball on a tee would also be appropriate response.

Spaz did more to harm the integrity of the university with his reticence during halftime interviews and awful demeanor during just about everything involving the press. Or, you know, when playing another team. He deserves to be poked fun.

If the crusty old shitheads that make up the whalepant demographic don't like the Dazzler, then consider that a +1 for him.

Nice to see some of you start to see the light and jump on the Addazio bandwagon.

I just want to restate my 100% support of this hire - I think Addazio will turn out to be a great coach for BC
