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!
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.
Rob and Riley are back to recap the awful Syracuse game, look ahead to the Boston College game, and provide more thoughts on the Wake Forest basketball team after yesterday's media day.
Your calls are always welcome, so please call in and voice your opinion or ask us a question.
#TheRivalry week is here.
After a disappointing loss to Clemson last week, the Eagle retake to the road at 4-3 to take on the Wake Forest Demon Deacons in Winston-Salem. We'll have all the coverage kicked off this week, but we'll get into the X's and O's of what to expect with our weekly coverage of the BCI Radio Show!
Dan and AJ will return at 8 PM, joined by the boys from Blogger So Dear, to profile the Eagels and Deacs game on Saturday afternoon. They'll discuss how Wake Forest could pull out a potential upset, and they'll discuss at length some of the factoids about this Boston College team. They'll also look into some of the hockey and basketball goings on as the boys of winter get started with their games.
Tune in and be sure to not miss another episode of our weekly show! Call in at 646-200-0446 and let your voice be heard!
We're back to football.
After a bye week, it's time to turn the page completely from the loss to Colorado State and start talking about NC State. The Wolfpack are 4-2 on the season, but both of their losses came in the last two weeks to Florida State and Clemson. This puts the ACC 0-2 NC State team one half game behind an ACC 0-1 Boston College team. To call this game a must win is not that far off from the truth for both teams.
It's the Atlantic Division opener for the Eagles, and Dan and AJ will be back to talk about it. So call in at 646-200-0446 and weigh in with your thoughts about the game!
The Eagles are 3-1 after beating the Maine Black Bears back to Northern New England. But questions still loom about this Boston College team - are they good enough to win another big game, how dominant can the running game be, and what is up next for Ryan Day, Steve Addazio, and Don Brown. How will BC handle a team we really don't know all that much about, and can they end the month of September needing just two more games to be bowling?
Join Dan and AJ as they're joined by the Mountain West Conference. Colorado State's coming for Saturday, making this yet another can't miss show!
For the first time in their storied history, the Sons of Troy will come east to take on the Boston College Eagles!
Tune in at 8 PM EST (5 PM PST) as Dan and AJ talk about last week's game against Pitt and begin previewing the game on Saturday night against USC. The Trojans are coming off a tough game against Pac-12 rival Stanford, but they also are a team that slaughtered BC in the LA Coliseum last year, 35-7. The game will be one of the featured national games of the week, finding itself on national television under the lights in Chestnut Hill.
USC is 4-0 lifetime against the Eagles, but they're a very different team from the one that took on Steve Addazio's crew last year. The Trojans defeated BC right before head coach Lane Kiffin was fired, and they transformed overnight from a 4-3 middle-of-the-road program to a 10-4 bowl champion. Now they're a nationally ranked team under the direction of new head coach Steve Sarkisian, and storylines are already abound.
Be sure to tune in and be sure to call in as the Eagles take on the Trojans for the first time in Boston!
Join us as Boston College comes off its Week 1 game against UMass and prepares for a Friday night national television matchup with Pittsburgh!
We'll take one final look back at the matchup with the Minutemen and discuss what went well and what went wrong. Then we'll turn the page to the game with the Panthers, the first meeting between the two programs since 2004. When last they met, Pitt beat BC at Heinz Field, 20-17 in OT, in the middle of the season. After BC lost to Syracuse at the end of the year in the Diamond Ferri Game, the Panthers won the Big East's automatic bid to the Bowl Championhip Series. Selected for the Fiesta Bowl, 5th-ranked Utah defeated them handily, 35-7, while BC defeated North Carolina in the Continental Tires Bowl. Following the season, the Eagles left for the ACC.
Now it's time to revisit the long-lost matchup. We'll talk the Panthers with Cardiac Hill and also discuss the concept of Friday Night Lights. Both teams will have short weeks of preparation with Pitt coming off a game against Delaware. Is this a good thing or a bad thing?
Weigh in on both the UMass and Pitt games by calling in to 646-200-0446 and tune in to talk Eagles football!
There's no reason to come down off the high from Saturday quite yet!
We're not quite sure if AJ is still alive, and Dan may still be running through the mods hugging everyone in sight, but they should be back for Tuesday's radio show. Boston College is coming off arguably its biggest home victory and one of its most memorable wins of all time, a 37-31 thriller over #9 USC, so tune in at 8 PM EST as we revisit what happened at Alumni Stadium on Saturday night.
There will also be the task of putting BC on the track for Saturday's game against Maine. As we've learned, there's no reason to ever have a hangover game, even if it's against an FCS opponent. This will be a great chance for BC to level set their season at the quarter pole with a 2-1 record.
Many of us said the Eagles would be 2-1, but we never thought it'd happen this way.
We'll also have some guests on to talk Boston College, so tune in at 8 PM EST or give us a call at 646-200-0446 to discuss!
