In 2015, Boston College will have a new offensive coordinator.
Ryan Day is no longer a member of the Boston College football coaching staff. The offensive coordinator returns to his old college coach by accepting the quarterbacks position coach slot with the Philadelphia Eagles. Reunited with Chip Kelly, Day will be at the reigns of a position featuring one of the brightest young arms in the NFL.
With Day gone, there will be much speculation as to who is the next man up to help run the Eagles offense. There is also going to be a reverberating impact on the team, especially with a plethora of young talent still waiting to be refined by the Boston College system. As the team heads into the spring of 2015, this adds to the question marks surrounding the wide receiver, offensive line, and quarterback positions.
We try to make sense of Day's departure and try to look forward into the crystal ball of who could be stepping forward as the new OC of the Eagles. Join us Tuesday at 8 PM as Dan and AJ jump on live with BCI Radio for what is sure to be a tense show. Give us a call at 646-200-0446 to discuss Day, the BC Eagles, and the steps forward.
For the first time in what seems like a long time (but not too long at all), the Eagles are at a crossroads. We try to talk it through on BCI Radio. So tune in and let us hear your thoughts!
LET THE HATE FLOW.
Come Saturday, Boston College and Boston University will play each other for their second meeting this season. After a 5-3 Terrier victory at Conte Forum, the series shifts down Comm. Ave. to the home of the red and white.
The Eagles will board the Green Line and invade BU for round two of the Green Line Rivalry. After five goals in the third period of their last meeting, the blue collar BC squad, hoping to turn around their second half of the season, will take on Jack Eichel and the Terriers, a team vying for a #1 seed in the national tournament.
We'll have a special edition of BCI Radio, one featuring Eastern Bias's Joe and Shep. We'll set up a great roundtable discussion, with Joe and Grant on one side and Shep and a partner of his choosing on the other. In the middle, reffing the situation, is New Guy - the regular host of BCI Radio and a noted fan of both programs.
Tune in at 8 PM and deliver your questions for the guys to answer at 646-200-0446. It's a Boston city showdown in the timeless college hockey rivalry!
The first half of the college hockey season is nearly in the books, and while the Boston College Eagles struggled through their first run, the Boston University Terriers enjoyed a renaissance to the days when they were one of the most feared brands in Division I.
Throughout the college hockey season, we've had the privilege of listening to BC Interruption's Joe Grav duke it out with his buddy Shep on the Eastern Bias podcast. Eastern Bias quickly became the preeminent voice of Hockey East, and their list of guests include some of the elite names throughout arguably the nation's best college hockey conference.
Now Joe and Shep will stage their first ever "takeover" of BCI Radio. With football season in our rearview mirror and the bowl game off on the horizon, our football guys will step aside for a week while the dynamic duo of Massachusetts ice rinks talk college hockey. For the first time, they'll be taking calls, and they'll be doing it on BCI at 646-200-0446.
So tune in to talk hockey with Shep and Joe as BCI Radio has its first ever Eastern Bias Takeover
We are now less than a week from the big game on Saturday - the 2014 New Era Pinstripe Bowl between Boston College and Penn State.
Dan and AJ return to break this one down on the field and look at the matchups between both schools. It'll be a fun chess match on the sidelines between James Franklin and Steve Addazio, but what happens between the stripes? What can we expect?
When discussing Penn State, we'll be talking about the controversy swirling around their program this season. When the season began, the Nittany Lions weren't even supposed to be in a bowl game, still serving the ban imposed by the NCAA. Since then, though, the revelations about potential wrongdoing by the governing body in the wake of the horribly tragic scandal in Happy Valley became public, and the bowl ban was lifted. What kind of impact could that have on Saturday, and what are your thoughts on the matter?
We'll be talking with guests about their thoughts for the bowl game and what to expect out of both the Eagles and Nittany Lions. We'll be taking your calls at 646-200-0446.
It was close, but it wasn't meant to be.
At 6-5, Boston College marches forward to its season finale. The Eagles will play their final home game of 2014 at Alumni Stadium on Saturday when they host the Syracuse Orange. It's the final time to see Tyler Murphy and the ultra-tough offensive line, and it'll come at a time when a win can mean a helluva lot.
There's absolutely nothing the Eagles can leave on the table come Saturday because of bowl implications, and they'll have a great chance to match last year's 7-5 record when they take on the struggling Orange.
We'll answer some of the tough questions surrounding this matchup - how does BC line up against a bad Syracuse team that seems to always play the home team tough? Will Scott Schafer destroy another podium? Is Otto a man, woman, or something kind of in the middle?
We'll be joined by the guys from Troy Nunes Is An Absolute Magician to talk Orange Eagle Trophy and bowl implications. It's the last chance to talk BC football this regular season as well, so call in at 646-200-0446
We're under two weeks away from Boston College vs. Penn State in the 2014 New Era Pinstripe Bowl. We're also in the middle of a basketball season that's been pleasantly surprising. How could we choose which sport to cover?
Easy. We couldn't. So we're going to do both.
With the shadow and the excitement of the bowl game hanging over BC, we couldn't just turn that away, but at the same time, we can't avoid talking about the encouraging start by the hoopsters. So we're going to talk both on BCI Radio!
Be sure to tune in as we talk attendance, marketing, and excitement surrounding the bowl game. We'll analyze how this bowl game has been different from the rest, how the efforts of the administration are totally different, and what we can expect from both fan bases as we get ready for the bowl game.
We'll then transition to the hardwoods to start gearing up for the BC-USC game on Sunday. Hey, remember the last time these two schools met in any sport? That was exciting.
We'll have our guests on to talk this one through, and be sure to call in and voice your opinion at 646-200-0446!
Following a week layoff following the loss to Louisville, the Eagles are back for what might be their best and strongest opponent of the season - Florida State.
Few teams need no introduction in the way FSU does. The Seminoles are the defending national champions, their star starting quarterback as controversial as he is talented, the defending Heisman Trophy. Their team, well coached, is among the best in the nation, and they're in the running for a shot at the national championship's inaugural College Football Playoff.
On the other hand, there's much to talk about with regards to BC. Tyler Murphy will need to bounce back from his worst performance of the year, and the offense will need to get back to its basics. We're at the stage of the year where we know what we're looking for from the Eagles, and this gives us the chance to reset how it can work against a team like FSU.
With Dan visiting the sunny Caribbean sun, AJ takes over the reigns of the BCI Radio Show. Give him a call and rub it in about how much better he does than Dan at 646-200-0446. Also be sure to razz whoever is grabbing the cohost chair or weigh in with thoughts shared from our guests.
ESPN's critically acclaimed "30 for 30" series premieres this Tuesday with Playing for the Mob. The story details the Boston College point shaving scandal of 1978-1979, its players, characters, and how the mob bought college basketball.
In 1978, Henry Hill, a noted gangster from the Lucchese crime family in New York City, teamed up with Rocco and Tony Perla from Pittsburgh to buy Boston College basketball. Hill, the protagonist from the movie Goodfellas who passed away last year, the Perlas, and BC basketball player Rick Kuhn spearheaded an effort for the Eagles to fix games by shaving points.
With teammates involved, Kuhn orchestrated point shaving games across nine games between December and February, 1978-1979. What started as a simple scheme became a story of high stake gambling, the Mafia, and Boston College. The scheme remained a secret until Hill turned informant in 1980.
We will spearhead a discussion of the story, its impact on college sports, and the prospect of match fixing as it continues today. We'll be joined by a panel of guests throughout the night, and we'll help get you ready for Boston College basketball season, the first under recently appointed head coach Jim Christian.
This is going to be one helluva show, and like so many before it, one you won't want to miss! So tune in and talk BC basketball and Goodfellas as we gear up for Tuesday's premiere of Playing for the Mob!
Two weeks ago, the world was falling. A Boston College defeat left the team at 3-2 heading on the road out of Massachusetts for the first time this season. They were about to get back into ACC play against an NC State team, and the outlook was grim.
But BC dominated on Saturday, taking a 30-14 victory over the Wolfpack to pull up to 4-2 on the season and within two victories of bowl eligibility. The Eagles controlled the clock, and Tyler Murphy ran for over 130 yards with a couple of long touchdown runs. The defense held NC State to under 250 yards overall, and they averaged 1.7 yards per rushing play.
That was then, and this is now. We turn the page to Saturday with help from all of you for the next opponent - Clemson. We'll talk the Tigers and the young yet fierce rivalry, and we'll speak with people who know a Top 25 team best. Clemson is back into the top 25 at #24 this week, and they'll be coming up on Saturday with their troves of fans.
So tune in at 8 PM and give us a call at 646-200-0446 to talk Tigers. Game day is right around the corner!
Football season is over.
Those four words might hurt enough to make you sad, but we're here to make things completely better. We'll relive the Syracuse game and analyze what happened, and we'll set things up for the bowl season. We'll look at where BC could land, what you can expect from potential bowl matchups. We'll look back at the season that was and relive as many moments as we can, from the reverse option to Sherm Alston to any one of Tyler Murphy's game breaking runs.
Eric Hoffses joins AJ and New Guy to put the final stamp on the Boston College season, set up a potential bowl game, and move forward with talk of offseason training expectations at about 8:15.
From there, we'll switch channels and move to the hardwood. BCI's newest new guy, Dan Doolan, sits down to talk Eagles hoops with the season kicking up under first year head coach Jim Christian. Following the Marist game, Dan will help us reset expectations and how the team's been playing.
We'll take your calls at 646-200-0446, so be sure to call in and talk with us about all things Eagles!
Angry? Frustrated? Ready to explode?
Good. So are we.
Everything about the Boston College loss to Colorado State stinks. The Eagles blew a fourth quarter lead, failed to put up points in the final frame, and collapsed worse than a video board at UMass. These are the facts. They are indisputable.
So let it out. Dan and AJ are back on the air to discuss the multiple fronts on which everything went wrong. Send in your calls to talk about what happened, where the game went wrong, and how BC can fix it moving forward. Want to talk about the lethargic Eagle fans? We'll do it. Want to talk about the lack of an effective kicker? We'll do it. Want to talk about the defense's inability to make the stop when it mattered? We'll do it.
Give us a call. 646-200-0446. We're mad. You're mad. Let's be mad together.
