URI fan here, but I take it with the game tonight we may call off next Friday's game in Chestnut Hill now? Was hoping one of us would win last night in order to play a true "round robin" between the 4 Empire teams.

Better team than I figured BC would have. Hopefully the issue with Heath is not chronic.

Why does one guy say "Ashton-Langford" on his uni and the other one says "Langford" (or "Langford Jr" to be exact).

I saw the last minute or so of the game.

I like college basketball, don't get me wrong; but it was everything I don't like about college basketball.

It must have taken 15 minutes to play the last minute. There were 3 or 4 time outs, which were a hell of a lot longer than a minute; plus I'm pretty sure the antiquated rule that you get 20 seconds (which is more like a minute and 20 seconds) to decide who to put in when someone fouls out.

Plus a nearly five minute review of something (game clock, shot clock, something else?). BC had fouled someone before the stoppage; talk about icing the shooter (the kid missed the first shot of two).

And, St. John's isn't any smarter than BC basketball-wise. They barely hung on.

Get Jim Christian the fuck out of here already. What an incompetent loser.

Thank god for DVR and FF
That was the most lopsided 20 point game I've ever skimmed.
FF'ed the play to see the mostly empty shots of Mohegan Sun

Christian must go
Like 2000 years ago

Having a good coach in Hafley really puts the spotlight on Christian, IMO.
The contrast is jarring. If Christian survives this year, he really is the cockroach of college basketball.

76-123 (.382)

He has to go. Did well at Kent State and Ohio and sucked at TCU and BC. The guy needs to stay in the MAC.

No one will ever match Gerry Friel's 19 years at UNH with an overall record of 188-325 (.366). Talk about the phrase "must have photos of somebody".

Langford may have basketball IQ of 25
Just got called for kneeing a Syracuse guy. Might have gotten away with it with no replay, but pretty stupid to think the film wouldn't show it.
Judging from this game, I'd set the over-under on Christian's employment being terminated at Martin Luther King Day.

I feel rewarded for watching the 2nd half of FGCU - Miami instead. Oh man, what a disaster. Christian better not make it to Christmas Eve.

Jim Christian coaching.
My Jim Christian WTF moment this year was the St John's game. 43 seconds left, down 2, St John's has the ball and a foul is called on Tabbs. I don't remember exactly why (maybe to see if it was a flagrant), but the refs review the play and it takes a long time, so in effect both teams get an extended time-out of at least 3 minutes as the refs watch the replay. St John's misses the first FT, makes the second, so they are now down 3. BC then inbounds, dribbles over half court, and he calls their LAST time-out with 39 seconds left. This after he had an eternity to go over every possible scenario while the refs were reviewing the previous play. And there was no intricate play called after his timeout. The play was inbounds to Tabb and clear out while he went 1 on 1. Tabbs got fouled and made 2, so they were down 1. But no timeouts left. Mind boggling. They lost by 4 after sending St Johns to the line again and then turning it over a couple times to seal it.

I thought for sure the new AD would fire him. Now we have wasted yet another year.

Playing Louisville today, a really bad matchup for BC. Wouldn't be surprised if he is fired by the end of the month and coach Spinelli takes over for rest of the year.

Every team is a really bad matchup for Christian. Worst coach we’ve had at this school in any sport in a long time. Even worse than Spaz.

If you don't count the 3-35 run, they would have won. One of these days they should switch things up and have Huckaby coach and Christian put on the headset. At least Huck gets paid for watching that filth. It must be weird for him.

There's no way Christian survives this, right? Please tell me he doesn't get a pass because of the bizarre covid season . . .

Wake couldn't make any free throws down the stretch but they couldn't score. Stefon Mitchell shooting threes when could have chipped away.

There's no more years left on his contract, are there? The only thing I could see saving him is if the financial losses at BC are so severe that they refuse to buy anyone out. I find that possibility extremely slim.
