    I figured I would set up the thread in a generic name. I will let one of the more creative posters update the title. Since we are now talking about 2019 Red Bandana games and Dead Daz Walking, we probably shouls flip the page and open up a new thread.

    Dead Daz Walking gets my vote

    New DB Coach, Eric Lewis, son of NFL DC Sherm Lewis.. looks like he's bounced around a lot but now we have a full staff

    Kansas game moved to Friday night so battle of titans, Daz vs Les Miles on Nat TV

    Les Miles is my favorite college coach of all time and I really wanted to have a 27 hour fun day of The Who, BC Miles, Billy Joel. Now I have to skip one of the first two.

    I hope BC Facilities/Athletics can make the grass extra tasty for Les.

    Because it's the offseason, here's a weird esoteric story relating to BC football. I'm sure many of you have seen Fyre Festival in the news recently thanks to the two documentaries released by Netflix and Hulu. The Netflix doc was supported by a company called Jerry Media, who also happens to be the company that promoted Fyre Fest in the first place. Jerry Media is getting major backlash from media figures for being a shitty company that exists because it steals videos and memes from other people and posts them their flagship Instagram page "FuckJerry." (Got all that? Me neither.)

    Guess who is the "Chief Content Officer" of Jerry Media?



    I had to double check to make sure that name was who I thought it was. Yep, Ryan Ohliger, infuriating and much-maligned BC kicker from the Tom O'Brien era, is now better known for being a professional asshole on Instagram. What a world.

    Somehow in their 50-55th rated recruiting class*, they did not sign a kicker. Maybe they're expecting Ohliger to steal one from someplace else.

    * I think these recruiting scoreboards are usually a crock and they did ok for themselves. Certainly they are not the 12th best team in the ACC, Daz or no Daz. But no kicker is the type of stuff that kills them year after year.

    Just picked up a 4star 2020 recruit Kevin Pyne from Milford. #23 recruit in country and offers from all the Big’uns. He has to be related to the Pyne brothers who played for Va Tech A whie back, I think they were from around Milford

    Nice. OL-U continues. This kid is tall, 6-7, but only 275, so will need to bulk up some. That said, he was "100%" expected to go to SBCC so this is extra special!

    Yes there are several Pyne football players, all related to one another going back a couple of generations. I think the first one played for a very early Patriots team.

    For those of us out here in California, good news this week as the Holiday Bowl in San Diego will be affiliated with the ACC starting in 2020. There are over 12,000 BC alums in California and CA is the 4th largest home state for current BC students. Additionally there are 3-4 players on the Two deep from CA and BC has inroads to the catholic high schools out here, especially in So Cal.

    BC is probably a natural fit for the ACC representative given the above. The game is played mid week of Christmas week so you have a huge alumni and student base out on the west coast and that should generate decent ticket sales, which will make the bowl committee happy. Recent PAC 12 teams that have played in the Holiday include: USC, Washington State, Utah, Arizona State and UCLA. So the opponent should be pretty good. Plus you are in San Diego with plenty of golf, Sea World and Disney (90 minutes away), beaches and fabulous weather. I can see this being a spot BC lands multiple times, assuming they win 8 games. Alternating between New York and SD and the occasional Tier I trip to Florida (Outback Bowl is now an ACC event) are pretty good destinations. Now, if we can just get 8 wins.......

    The game accounts indicate they'll just ram it down the other team's throat until they can't, much like 2018 except they perhaps have more guys to do it with.

    Any other conclusion can be reached from that game?

    Ummm, that Anthony Brown has a problem leading his receivers. He has a tendency to throw to the wrong side of his receivers, forcing them to turn or slow down to catch them, thereby reducing long passing gains. We still have a big problem in the kicking game. Our defense is swiss cheese and will get lit up as there is little to no pass defense off the edge and will put huge pressure on the secondary.

    Looks like a 6-6 season at this point.

    Brown stinks. 6-6 seems about right.
