    Boston College Athletics: Football Post-Mortem and Basketball Review

    in Sports

    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!

    Boston College Athletics: Bowl Coverage Begins...And We'll Talk Some Hoops

    in Sports

    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!

    GCL SportsBiz Brief: Benefits of College Athletics Success

    in Sports

    Roll Tide...
    The SEC proved it is the dominant conference in college football once again in what ended up as a less than entertaining BCS National Championship Game. But sometimes, a victory is more than just a victory!! On this week's GCL SportsBiz Brief, we'll analyze a hidden aspect of the 'Bama victory.
    Do you ever wonder what the impact of Alabama's "dynasty" in college football will have on-campus? There's no doubt that Alabama's 42-14 thrashing of Notre Dame will definitely help Nick Saban secure another Top 5 recruiting class on signing day in February and will help the ticket office continue its streak of consecutive sellouts in the 100,000 stadium. But what impact will this victory have on the # of applicants, the SAT scores of those applicants, donations to the university, and more? Does a strong football program impact the quality of student who attends a university?
    We are joined by Professor Michael Anderson who will discuss the correlation between strong athletic programs at the collegiate level and SAT scores (or academic success).
    Anderson, Professor of Economics at UC Berkeley and a Faculty Research Fellow at the National Bureau of Economics, has written a fascinating research paper that states that spending on college athletics is justified because a successful college program attracts better students to the institution as well as other beneficial outcomes.
    Join us Tuesday at Noon ET/9am PT for this conversation (and more) as we also cover 5 Hot Topics in SportsBiz heading into 2013!

    College athletics...Is it a fair exchange?

    in Culture

    Every year around this time, when its time for the big time college football programs to cash those huge TV deal checks and for the best coaches in the land to jocky for position at the richest schools in the nation, there are also hundreds of big time recruits who feel their lives will be changed forever. They've worked hard to sign with the college of their choice. For many its one of many schools ranging from Oregon to Alabama who feel they are the best at their positions and deserve to perform on the big stage. They've been heavlily courted better than the best looking prom date could only imagine. 


    Then there are those kids who are playing for schools with smaller budgets and no TV contracts. Schools like Grambling St. and Temple who have the make the tough decision to cut certain sports to keep the school afloat. 


    There are many who believe that big time athletics, specifically big time football and basketball are simply farm systems for the NBA and NFL. Many of these same people believe that the schools do not live up to their end of the bargain in assuring that these big time athletes actually graduate from the schools who made them millions and in some cases billions of dollars. There are also many who say, these young men are adults making adult decisions. No on is responsible for their academic well being but them. 


    Is it strictly the athletes job to make it through on their own, or are the schools culpable for insuring the future of these young people? We will debate that on this episode of Life Full Circle Radio.
