Basketball Practice Facility

Postby eepstein0 on Mon Jun 04, 2018 11:40 am

I forgot to mention this, but talked with a few people at BC in Brooklyn who mentioned a basketball-only practice facility is on the way.

I would imagine they'll start fund-raising on it this summer/fall. Should probably hit up Jackson & Dudley the same way some other schools have for an initial donation to kick it off.

Well that's good news. The program will have no excuses after it's built and Leahy is dead.

Leahy is WAY overdue to step aside. We need a change, but I have little faith we'd get a good replacement.

College presidents are also spending less time in each job. The average tenure of a college president in their current job was 6.5 years in 2016, down from seven years in 2011. It was 8.5 years in 2006.

Leahy has been president for 22 years.

Why do you have little faith that we’d get a good replacement?

How did this thread spin into a fire Leahy thread? This is EO at its best.

Because I'm assuming it would be a Jesuit priest selected by a board of trustees that is made up of a group of people who have not convinced me that they care or know enough about competing in big-time college athletics.

i disagree. i see the next president being a lay person. that doesn't mean they won't pick the wrong lay person, but my guess is no white collar in the president's office when leahy retires in 8 years

That would be a small step in the right direction and certainly possible.

It has already been decided at high levels that Kevin Shea will succeed. This should not interpreted to meant that Shea will succeed, however.

Previously, he served as the Boston Red Sox’ director of public relations, internal and external communications and media relations.

Interesting.

I wonder what ol' whalepants would have to say about this.

I was just talking to a BC person recently and the thought is the BOT and the Jesuits want another Jesuit President.

I went to high school with Kevin Shea. I can't imagine him as President of BC but a lot of HS people have ended up in places I didn't expect so who knows. He's from a big Holy Cross family. If it happens, it's probably good news for BC hockey since the Sheas were a huge hockey family.

Shea will never be BC president. He's not an academic nor a high profile leader from another area (business or politics).

Would be a huge raise for him.

No one could be worse than Chris Crane.

Does this Dudley tweet have something to do with the rumored new hoops facility?
