SORT BY Relevancy
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
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.
Where we will be talking about things that happen in college. We will be talking about different events that happen. I will be giving advice about different things about college life and the process to get to college. The feelings you get when you get in and the feelings you get when you move in. As I go through my freshman year I will keep you updated on how it is going and how I am doing. I will also be talking about different issues that happen.
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!
