Stop. Going to BC over Stanford is stupid.


troll


Lol. Homer douchebag.


I think you're lost. Here you go: http://bigpurplefans.ipbhost.com


I'm not lost. Send your kids to BC instead of Stanford. Yeah. Thought not.


Perhaps all recruits should go to Harvard and Yale


Only if they want a job.


But not the best decision if they want to make millions in the NFL


Lol yeah, BC is feeding kids to the NFL. Go Costanzo.


So I guess the cornerback who chose BC over Florida should go to Stanford? Or is he right that the current BC coaching staff will give him the best chance at the NFL?


Stop.

Always.

I will say if you are a DB recruit BC is the place to be right now. I can comfortably say that has never been the case before.

Stanford is better academically but BC is no slouch, we arent comparing SMU to Stanford. Also, depends what you want to do, where is your alumni network going to help more, etc. Someone like Kendall would get a job where ever he wanted with a BC degree. We look after our own. Also, there is an advantage of staying on the East Coast.

I think all recruits should go to BC. Most don't. This is just grumpy whalepants feeling jilted over a kid that might choose Stanford because they feel it is an offense to alma mater. It is not.

I hope he picks BC so they can be vindicated this time.

BC has an excellent national academic reputation, as does Stanford, Northwestern, ND, Vanderbilt, etc. It’s not academics that will lead a recruit to choose one school over another in this group. It’s the coaching staff primarily that makes the difference. Location plays a role as well, some kids want to get away. If they plan on living in the Boston area after their playing days are over, local kids are better off going to BC.

Whatever Kendall’s final choice is, it will not be due to academics with this group of schools. He will get a great education at either BC, Stanford or Michigan.

Go Eagles!

Stanford does not have an undergrad business school. BC's is elite. So there's that.

This is dumb. Stanford is Stanford. I will never have a problem with a kid picking Stanford, Duke, Vandy, Northerwestern or the Ivies over BC. The best student-athletes should go to the best academic schools. If that ideal held, BC would be fighting for Top 10 classes with Wake, USC, UVA and ND. In my mind, the issue is not athletes picking Stanford over BC, it is picking Clemson over BC.

That said, I don’t think you can ever go wrong with choosing BC (unless you’re someone with criminal proclivities or no interests in academics). Hafley has a Coughlin-like feel to him in a “right time, right place” sorta way. David Shaw is also an excellent coach and supposed to be a good guy. But, there seems to be some upheaval going on there (along with disappointing seasons). Both are at risk of being poached by the NFL (but so is any good coach).

Don’t think Hafley wants to be an NFL coach. He’s said numerous times in interviews that he likes college better because the focus is more on player relationships which he missed in the NFL. Could the right deal Financially convince him? Sure, but my point is that he’s not one of those guys doing college solely as a means to an ends. I just hope that when he starts winning Leahy-hoo makes a reasonable effort to keep him here.

And David Shinskie is at risk of declaring for the NFL draft early.

Based on the tweets on the Twitter verse seems like we just picked up another commit.

Edit: Looks like it’s a 2022 commit. Carry on

This was beyond dumb.

I love BC. But if my kid is between Stanford or BC and he’s not a top 6 forward, top 4 defensemen or starting goalie, it’s a not brainer.

I don't know what recruiting letters said under Addazio, but I like the closing statement in Hafley's letter in terms of aiming for an ACC and national championship.
