This is what the Captain argued: "This year's team had no discipline and no heart. They were inconsistent, and struggled to do anything well. 2 straight years they've lost to Harvard on their own floor." "He doesn't go on recruiting trips, etc. Etc."
Well BC fired Donahue Tuesday with two years remaining on his six-year contract after he went 54-76 over a protracted four-year struggle in the ACC. Hmmmm. Let's compare my boy Al Skinners record?

Dude was mint. BC's all time best coach and BC fired him because BC thinks they are a major sports university and can just do the next man up. Al Skinner was the man, he didn't run a Hoosier's esk offense that would waste 31 of the 35 second shot clock passing back and forth to each other.. BC had something like 70% of it's offense, rebounding, assists returning this season and other than a Syracuse win, they did nothing.
So BC admit your mistakes and bring Al Skinner home.
