Boston College basketball preview!

(was: #16 R.P.I.) NOW #46 Virginia Tech vs. (was: #241 R.P.I.) NOW #184 Boston College:

Virginia Tech men’s basketball IS butter! Again. Or at least for a few (un)CommonWEALTHY, days!

The Hokies are on a Major Williams, roll! Or, at least on a very tasty Owens Dining Hall freshly minted, lê croissant kinda way. As this team is playing pretty dang tight on O. Very when they gets it cooking with CH4 and put in a hellUVA a nite of works. Now Boston College takes their traveling shot at us. The F’n Eagles check in at a very pedestrian-looking: 11 up against 13 down or basically code for 11th place (at: 5 vs. 8 or .385) in the A.c.c. race of 15. .5oo could be their (remaining) 2o22 apex here; as these Eagles have had their hooping wings clipped a bit of late, (mo’: below). And yet they ARE a ½ game out in Atlantic Coast front of guess O&M, who? Nevertheless, what you wanna know is… who is gonna win and by how much, rights? So, read on… to finds, out!

Boston College Head CoachEarl Grant: Age=,151–121 (.555) overall, and 24–32 (.429) @BeeCee. Has a rep’ for: music… wait… and, well… I’m not sure? A stall-ball pace?

(His bio’s prior to the B.C. posting say: defensive rep’).
$1,500,000.oo (with: $437,500 per annum, and a $225,000 buyout)

Pianist, who rose to some ebony & ivory acclaim back in the late 1950’s up through the late 1960s… The Ed Sullivan Show reg’… and… wait a damn St.Val’s minute b.street?!?

Baller Grant was/is a native of North Charleston, South Carolina, where Grant attended R.B. Stall High School.

A former student-athlete, jock’ Grant played two years at the NCAA Division II level at Georgia College in Milledgeville, Ga. He led the school to two appearances in the NCAA Tournament and to consecutive Peach Belt Conference Championships (1999 and 2ooo). In 2ooo, the Bobcats advanced all the way to the Elite Eight of the NCAA Division II national tournament. He was named an All-Peach Belt First Team selection in 2ooo.

Shows he rides clutch, don’t it?

The A.c.c.’s Duke of… Earl?!?

Big Whistle Grant began his coaching career as an assistant at The Citadel under Pat Dennis from 2oo2 to 2oo4. Gregg Marshall hired Grant as an assistant at Winthrop University in 2oo4, and when Marshall left to take the head coaching gig at Wichita State in 2oo7, he brought Grant along with him. Grant was hired as an assistant at Clemson in 2o1o, serving under Brad Brownell.

On September 2, 2o14, Grant was hired as the head coach of the College of Charleston, replacing Doug Wojcik. Where Coach G spotted two so-so-seasons, three near-stellar seasons, and then three mo’ so-so-seasons. Hard guy to super-peg for it, like the old high school gymnasium climbing board over on the side, way way back when. Tho’ he did make the post-season twice for Charleston too.

Championships: C.A.A. regular season (2o18) and the C.A.A. Tournament (2o18).
Awards: C.A.A. Coach of the Year (2o17).

Pretty much the neverwasbeen celtic’s attempted Prybar of their very own.
Hard to say here either way… could be a good hire?
Could be a: Bridge Too… Far?

Official Title: The Clement and Elizabeth Izzi Family Head Men’s Basketball Coach… whatever that means? earned his bachelor’s degree in psychology from Georgia College in 2ooo. Daddy Earl and his wife, Jacci, a 2oo1 College of Charleston graduate who received her degree in elementary education.
They have three sons: Trey (13), Eyzaiah (12), and Elonzo (9).
God (thrice) Bless!

Boston College at a glance:

  • 89th best in Swats/game. (NOW: a decent 1o8th, tho technically)
  • 311th best in 3-point percentage D allowed! (NOW: 328th, not much trifecta D here, )
  • 329th best in Effective FG percentage O!! (NOW: 3o5th, little here)
  • 331st highest in Scoring O!!! (NOW: 314th, little here too).
  • 332nd tightest in Assist:Turnover Ratio!!! (NOW up to 222nd best, mucho better ) (VeeTee was 6th best, NOW 15th F.Y.I.)
  • 35oth best in 3-point percentage O!!! (NOW: 334th, smidgeon better here, )
  • Injuries listed: (Coach God!)
Observe since I updated all this BeeCee ONLY has one, that’s (1), uno, singular ranking better than 1o8th best outta all 351 2o23 D-1 menz hoops teams! One. (81st fewest fouls ‘whistled’ against).
i.e., this is NOT a good-looking team folks, myspacebook ethos aside, it; jus’ ain’t.

Returning Starters=4!

Boston College Strengths:

  • (In theory: my preview mag’s all ratify that Coach Earl has an experienced backcourt and some perimeter continuity available this time for the first BeeCee time, ever. Such should theoretically help.)
  • The (former) leading scorer, leading assistor, and leading stealer alike would be one double #1, Makai Ashton-Langford. Makai is a 6′3″, 18o lb., One, who is really prolly mo’ parts Lead-G that pure orange-ball Qb1. He has also been dinged up all year so far; Godspeed on that. He was also BeeCee’s only returning starter last season as well. So, systemic experience he surely gots. Tho’ Makai is down/off a bit thus far this year: per his: 12.9 ppg with 2.4 apg on 3.2 rpg and .8 spg is decent if not useful all-’round stuff. (Pardon the hoopy pun). The BeeCee Roster says he has cut a whopping 2o lbs., down to ≈18o since transferring over from Providence College. And yet he (somehow) found 1″ in height since we saw him last. LOL, go fig’ there? Someone unplugged his deep… Friar, indeed. 18 ppg along the High School way… where Ashton Attended Brewster Academy in 2o16-17, helping to guide the team to a 33-o mark and the National Prep School Championship. That counts. So did Langford’s Attended Cushing Academy run in 2o15-16, averaging 22 points, 4 rebounds, and 7 assists per game as he helped his team win the AA New England Prep School Championship. As M.A-L was merely a consensus Top-5o rated recruit as a prep— peaking at 33rd per Scout. I’d say that count as well, as well as I would say mo’ was counted on here (by both schools). Does have a history of trick knee(s), (St.Nikon bless) which have expensed him a handful of games or so per season(s) thus far. He did get his BeeCee degree; so .edu props on Graduate Year dats. Has run hot-n-cold the whole time for it; or up then down then back up. Is willing, and does get to the rack, tho’ his range is a tad limited at 28.7% deep, now down 16 icy percent this season. Likewise, a relatively mere 4o.5% from the floor. As Mr. Ashton-Langford is more of a mid-20s 3-point percentage caliber gunner career-wise so far. Does keeps a long-azz burnt orange twist-top, so there is that as well. A solid baller, with a very fringe overseas backup kinda potential who has prolly found his collegiate level. (UPDATE: …very chilly shooter of late, snowbank slumped if you will). (UPDATE2: overall, one of the few mixed guys, some went up and some went down, for a ⇔ sideways grade since we saw him last).
  • 6′5″, 22o lb., Junior year, DeMarr Langford Jr., is another guy on the ’22 drop. Even if his bench is on the incline as he has found a 10-lb. plate of right mass this off-season. As he was BeeCee’s 2nd-best scorer last year. This year DeMarr is down to: 7.3 ppg with 2.7 rpg and 2.1 apg are what your Off-G gets here. 247Sports 94th hommie outta high school. McDonald’s All-American, and the younger bro’ of the above/aforementioned Langford. Likes to flex his not-really-bulky muscles; a lot. Knifey penetrator who takes contact well; is stronger than he looks, and looks older than he is. Clearly, shooting does not run in the family, as he was at a lowly 9.1% on dialing long-distance (now improved to a nearly doubling 2o.1%), he was at a lowly 58.5% from the charity stripe (now improved to a quite reasonable: 77.4%), and he was just north of 40.6% overall (now improved to 43.8%) would aver, connote, and posit. Also made the Brewster National Bling a family affair. So, that is a checkmark in the family dinner icebox. Lindy’s says this Wing is good off-the-dribble and a solid lockdown defender. I would not be inclined to dispute that… needs to add depth to his O-face or offensive game, however. An average Wing, kinda not a great or a bad Wing, (boneless or not). (UPDATE: one of the best in-season statistical betterment Eye’ve ever seen! Worthy of a rarified two, that’s (2) up-votes here, ⇑⇑). (UPDATE2: now listed as: QUESTIONABLE, having missed his previous two contests with a knee-ding, St.Culbreth help! )
  • Double-Soph’ or redux year Jaeden Zackery is a Pt.Guard. Who checks in at: 6′2″, 215 lb., and finds his way to a was team-pacing now third-placing: 1o.4 ppg with 3.1 rpg and 2.6 apg as your quasi-first option on O here. None of which is all dat and a ‘snap’, less his range itself. As this kid can flat-out shoot the damn rock. His range is the gym. If he is in it? He is open. Nearly 20% better than ANYONE else is on the 3-ball. Or, at least he was, as Jaeden is now down to a very middleocore looking 32.4% on his 3’s this year. Which does not technically suck. Although the 4o.5% from the floor needs some mop-n-glow to boot. And yet neither does being a 2o2o-21 Third Team NJCAA All-American out of Chipola College. Wherever/whatever that means… that is supposed to mean he is a decent small-school pick-me-up hand-me-down get. Supposed to be a 3-n-D One; in a very crowded One-through-One-through-Wing 3-Guard BeeCee backcourt. Tho’ the on-trend: 1.83:1 assist/turnover ratio and a 1.20 steal/turnover ratio say this is a pretty handy guy as handles go as well. As he does lead BeeCee in swipes with 1.5 spg. Does have a near lowercase fullback build from football, a pretty strong northward or penetrating guy when he wants it for all his legwork. Did southern hemisphere impress upon breaking tape here. Not a soft touch on the outside. Kinda a very light-complected less bulky Mitch Richmond Lyte. Tho’ +1 for the Jersey Shore blow-out afro’ look. That takes the triple-double pre-game mirror, time. (UPDATE: whatever Mr. Langford found above this kid basically L, Down everywhere less assisting, dang… -vote here).
    This BIG ain’t small on, potential.

Boston College Weaknesses:

  • Well, for starters, BeeCee lacks playable or pliable depth.
  • BeeCee also enjoys zero, that’s (o) pre-season A.c.c. Honorees in any of my mag’s for anythang. And that typically tracks rather power conferences poorly, indeed.
  • Health; or, lack thereof. As BeeCee is not running at full strength. (Mo’: down below…)
  • One #12, Upperclassman (with unused cv19 year) Mississippi State Bulldog transfer: Quinten Post, is OUT. As this poor Post sustained a key foot injury (St.Servatius bless), and he is expected to miss four to six weeks. Also expected to miss 4-6 weeks would be his: 7′, 25o thickly lbs. As Amstel Lyte this just, ain’t. As this is a big boy by way of: Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Q’ is said to be a versatile player with a legit inside/outside game and some credible 3-point range (34.4%). Has FIBA experience, and has 1 mo’ Dutch National Championship bling than you and I do combine for too. Academic Honor Roll member; props on that. Has Germanic H.S. experience as well— where his scoring got him internationally hoopology radar scope noticed. Does have 3-years of eligibility remaining, this after 10 points and nearly 6 boards last year down in Starkville. This is a pretty big subtraction for BeeCee down-low folks. Interesting kid… worth a 2o23-2o24 ask back too.
    NOW back however (since: ’22 NYE nite) and this post-up is a baller ‘on the come’ as they Ring-Ball say: “over there” in jolly ole England. Post is now winning the BeeCee scoring race at a nifty returning :15.8 ppg with 6.o rpg and 1.5 apg! This all on: near team-leading 54.6%, A.c.c. leading 94.1% free-throwing and a quite respectful 36.4% from behind the 3-point arc! This is a BIGtime get-back for the Eagles folks. As this Post playar also paces Boston in swats (1.2 bpg) and this is all from a kid with a tag of: ‘rebounder and rim-protector’. That’s quite an enlargement from a big man to his overall hoopology and BeeCee is noticeably better for it too!
  • Also truly hurting would be: Donald Hand. As Mr. Hand Jr. will miss the rest of the 2o22-23 season with a torn A.c.l. Yikes and St.Culbreth bless. Also missing the season would be his: Virginia Beach, Va., escapee 6′5″, 195 lbs. worth of S/G or Two. As Don’ was merely named the 2o22 Virginia Class 6 Player of the Year after a high-scoring (26 ppg) senior scholastic season. His old man: (Donald Sr.) was only a three-year captain at virginia from 1997 to 1999 and only averaged nearly 13 points per game for his career. So, the basketball Genome Project projects swell enough here. Top-5 consensus in-state Commonwealth baller. 247’s 141st baller overall and something of an out-of-state recruiting coup for BeeCee. Said to be a combo-G who can score at all three levels (inside, midrange, outside) alike. Good handles, textbook shooting form; (was averaging over 5 ppg early this year)— as this too is hurtful subtraction for depleted BeeCee to 2o23 add-up.

Fn Eagle nest: (depth=1 or 2, tho’ who starts/subs do match-up vary)

(true) final-year T.J. Bickerstaff: P/F, at: 6′9″, 22o lbs. No (coaching the verb) nepotistic relation that Eye could find? Until I went a generation deeper… ‘aye’, his old man’s old-man is coach Bernie of Supersonics fame! How can we be that old, now?!? This grand-sonny Bickerstaff started all 20 games for Drexel during the 2o2o-21 season. Where TeeJay averaged 1o.2 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 1.4 assists per game for the Dragons in his debut or rookie voting season last year. This year he is getting you 5.2 ppg and a silver medal at 5.6 rpg, in relief! With a 1.3 spg and a block and yet the 46.7% that close to the rack is not a sophistican’t look. Did seem to play bigger in bigger games on bigger stages last year— which could be a sign of being a gamer. The ≅82% from the FT-Line careerist maker says there has to be some Talent here on the O side, somewhere. Tho’ the still decreasing and mere 56.8% from the ’22 FT-Line says he too is shooting slumped this year. A high-energy guy, attacks the rim, and does not seem sweat-adverse… so maybe ask back in 2o24 if/when he returns? As the only place winning comes before working is Webster’s. And T.J.B. is at least willing to put in work. (UPDATE: tough one to grade, some yin some yang, closest of all to a net or horizontal rating).

Grad’-student, C.J. Penha Jr. Is a 6′7″, 23o lb. thumping S/F or oversized Three. He is also 4th best in netting: with 7.5 ppg and 2.8 rpg off the pine. CeeJay also leads the rotational way with 36.8% from behind the arc and a sporty looking 53% overall. Less than (<) 1 outta 2 (43.5%) from the free-throw line is a throwaway here. As this is a Graduate Student by way of little ole: Division II Trevecca Nazarene. So, getting to Beantowne is a huge come-up-in here. The 34% when dialing long distance is a (pleasant) surprise. Accordingly, maybe we do not grade this one so stringently. As C.J. was a solid scorer and board man down two levels below… as he broke in three, that’s (3) levels down below at: Taylor University (NAIA). WoW. And welcome up @Mr. Penha Jr. (UPDATE: slight ⇓-grade or a little off here, not bad, just enuff to negative slope).

6′7″, 215 lb., r-Fresh. year, Devin McGlockton F… only leads the way at 56% from the floor and another shiny looking 67% from deep. This paired with his: 5.7 ppg and 4 rpg and a steal and a team-leading 1.1 bpg gathered to all of that. As this Glock’ gathered some cross-sport honors to boot as an All-Metro ATL award winner on the hardwood and on the gridiron alike. Check it… Mr. McGlockton was only a 2o2o First Team All-State selection in football, starring as a Te1 for the South Forsyth H.S. War Eagles. So, there are some who might be wondering if this was/was not his alpha sport? Lindy’s however is saying that Devin is good enough to: “help inside right away”. As this is a curious prospect; maybe even in mo’ than one, sport. (UPDATE: down-slope, again; same as above, not awful, tho’ enuff to get the pointing arrow here).

Mason Madsen, is a true pasty red-bearded 6′4″, 19o lb., Jr. year, lead-G who never met a shot he did not like— or would not, take. Although mo’ parts taker than maker (32.8% overall married to 28% long), Mason Madsen is one other thing. He is a downright explosive leaper with a team-best 44-inch vertical leap! He was also a three-star rated recruit out of Mayo Senior H.S.; starred alongside his 13 ppg Utah Ute twin brother Gabe ‘ Samson’ Madsen while scoring better than 2,000 points for his father Luke’s squad. So, he is a coach’s son and that is typically code for a pretty high in-ring I.Q. This Madsen bro’ is ambidextrous, does ‘yell’ a lot, can shoot with either hand and did Eye mention the “volume”, yet? K’. M2 is a Cincy transfer, where he did average 36% from trifecta-land on the reg’. Said to be a shooter who can jump and his (now) coach likes him as a hardwood Qb1 head-game-wise. So, time=tell here, as there are some lofty adjectives -in addition to leaping itself- that this Mason needs to un-jar at some point in time. As this is a very streaky kid; like mid-teens pops clean or pops for goose eggs (zeros) in ppg terms. 5.4 ppg with 2.5 rpg and 1.o apg on the campaign. (UPDATE: , maybe up just a bit since we faced him last, or at least raising his floor which smoothed his overall: Mean, Median… Mode).

The key to calling this home date before St.Valentine's Day vs. BeeCee is, what(s)?

Illationconclusion(s) and OPT digits:

Number of Eagles who could soar @Tech=2-point-something give/take.

the takeaway:
The takeaway here is

that there is just not a lot to be truly F’n Eagle taken with, here.

Such is the science-fact Coach Spock objectified realm of teams who tally twenty-six; that’s (26) National Rankings of 150th best or worse outta the 32 National Rankings I track for each-n-every, game.

Or, they did… NOW they are improved all the way to: 22!

That is C, C— or all the way down to, F+ caliber roundball.
Right at a near ∼70% of the main components of hardwood work itself; if you are keeping score @home.

As in… basically nine, that’s (9) of said lowly National Rankings are rather; well, ‘rank’ indeed.
3o5th worst or even worse than that if you are keeping score @home.
NOW… only eight, that’s (8). So, there is that…

And I suppose that has to be code for some measure of improvement— slight or not, notwithstanding.

Meaning, this is just not a good All Championship Conference calling male hoopz team.
And getting upset by them even 7o3-miles So-by-So-East @home would be a meme thing indeed.


Our handy-dandy friend the so-called Forum Guide of Graham Houston fame is calling for a near-shock +32-point VicTory Dance here! The Forum Guide took its first L of the year last time out as admittance goes. Tho’ it yo-yo’ed a bit here, BeeCee was closer/better earlier ¦ and yet has faltered or fallen off a bit of late. Let us hope that late is mo’ up to… date.


The annualized year-to-date vitals say that… VeeTee was up right at +11% in shooting percentage margin ¦ NOW down to only being up +5% however (per: being very efficacious on O; and a little better on D. VeeTee wins both, VeeTee wins on O mo’) with VeeTee has been up whopping ≅+16% in 3-point percentage margin ¦ NOW down to only being up +1o% on ‘3s (due to: BeeCee cannot make a “3” with a pencil and 6th to last at such might just be a clue here. BeeCee is also 12th from last in 3-D. Whilst VeeTee is 116th in 3-O and a near-matching 115th best in 3-D… or quite a gap opens up here), and VeeTee is up an okay +2 caroms in rebounding margin for the duration. (VeeTee is a little better than average off the ‘glass whereas BeeCee is below average in collections for the year; in particular really below average at: 298th in D-glassing).

7 PM kick!

The most recent 5-game metrics say that… the Hokies were up a shocking +17%; NOW however we are only up +3% in shooting percentage margin (from: VT is ever slightly honing/increasing their possession efficacy of late, though not much D (more below) and the Eagles are basically breaking even, so-so O against so-so D recently); with the Gobblers were up a mind-numbing and nearly unheard of +27% in 3-point percentage margin; NOW however we are only up +6% in the 3-point margin  (due to: VT netting a bit better and same as from the floor, the F’n Eagles are so-so on 3-point O and so-so on 3-point D recently), and the Techmen were up a rather beneficent +8 misses in rebounding margin in the last fortnight of board-work. NOW however and it is the BeeCee’s who are up +1 miss in rebounding margin in |absolute value| terms. (As in… the O&M has gone fiberglassing negative of late whereas Boston (same as above, for the third time) is so-so on the O-glass and so-so on the D-glass of late). Go fig’ here?!?

That said… do observe how much we/VeeTee have dropped from being oh so hawt-hawt-hawt when we last attempted to climb Chestnut Hill. This tells us -even though we have improved of late a bit, granted- there should also be some mo’ headroom to capture before we declare ‘roofing’ indeed. A little on O and mo’ than a little from O&M, D.


Armchair Pt.Guard’s:

Boston College has a 3-12 record in games decided by 1o or more points. i.e., this team lacks cultural staying power and it shows out, late. i.e.e., they are getting way tooooo used, to… L’ing.
(So, do not give them any hope— early).

Hokiebird D buy-in now trending, Bearish?
Virginia Tech is averaging 80 points over its last four games.
It is also averaging right at 75-allowed over the same timeframe.

Streakin’ 1o1:
Mike Young is o-4 against the Eagles since he was hired as Virginia Tech’s head coach, and two of those L’s came in the 24o6o!huh?

Charles Emerson Winchester ‘the third’; M*A*S*H(ed):
Injuries have been a problem for the Eagles, who have been without guard Makai Ashton-Langford, guard/forward Prince Aligbe, forward Quinten Post, guard DeMarr Langford Jr., and guard Donald Hand Jr. for at least part of the season.


…spies hint that BeeCee has been very Post porous of late. This could be… Key… here.

BeeCee was up +7 in R&R in the last two weeks of runs (NOW VeeTee is up +2 in R&R).
V.P.I. was up +7% at the charity stripe for the year (NOW: only up +2% tho’!).
BeeCee is a .143 as as guest; whereas VeeTee is .846 as a host.

The Call...

(Was: no.19) NOW no.5o Net Ranking Virginia Tech vs. (was: no.246) NOW no.189 Net Ranking Boston College:

So, to me… oddly enuff, the very same as last time… as this time this one has that so-called Association Property of a: “get-away game” to it to me.

Code fo’: …the final homie for a Hokie team that just has just won .75o or 3 of their last 4— and yet then hits the All Coaching Conference road for a week. A week that historically generates a 9% chance at sweeping both @away games.

Or… in other words… you had damn well better butter your Owens Dining Hall bread
-while you can- @home, here.


Or, a bit of an Ichy Crane look or a contest played vs. an A.c.c. J.V. Parquet squad inside of… Sleepy, Hollow, or possible let-down trap Cassell.


As in… the 8,6o6 capacity Conte Forum typically has a lotta spectators cleverly disguised as empty, seats.
As in… Boston College has fielded one single solitary winning menz hoops campaign since 2o12!
As in… the Eagles have swooned to single-digit victories in six, that’s (6) of those talon years.

…which is to say… their 11teen victories thus 2o23 far are (already) better than 5 of their last 11 campaigns. So, why give them a reason(s) to feel any better now?

Go’on and put the pedal to the O&M metal from the jump.
’cause you let them into this contest and you let them hang around a bit and they suddenly begin to contest you in earnest?
That’s on you. You did that… as their history speaks to that jus’ the same.

(caVeaT from above):

  • VeeTee is checking in at what would be: 2nd-ranked on shooting overall Nationally overall in their last 5!
  • VeeTee is checking in at what would be: 4th-ranked in 3-point netting Nationally in their last 5!
  • … however, …
  • VeeTee is also checking in at what would be: 333rd best in stopping shooting overall Nationally in their last 5!
  • VeeTee is also checking in at what would be: 235th best in halting 3-point netting Nationally in their last 5!

Now… riddle me this… which one is mo’ likely to go ‘cold’ at some point?
Or offensive shooting or our defensive shielding?

Eye’ll give you a hint… defending and rebounding are perspiration or sweat based,
same as all things hard-work that tend to be, warm.

The VerdicT:

…do you sees what Eye means?
This one has that ‘cold‘ gym feel to it to the shooter in me.

Not that Boston College records an upsetting: Tech Triumph over in the warming New River Valley.

More like we/VeeTee may be due for a chilly shooting nite and that leaves BeeCee within contact -through no credit of their own- for the duration.

🦃 >>> 🏀 >>> 🦅

’cause since we saw and got upset by them -mind you- last… BeeCee has… actually (somehow) gone a nifty .6oo having won 3 in 5.

The thingy is -improvements to their credit aside- when BeeCee gets A.c.c. DeeCee’d they tend to get worked if not get punked itself. As they have tallied16,15, 2o, 16, 22, and another unsweet 16 outcome effort in All Championship Calling play.

The closer:

…meaning: there really could if not should be a reasonable -or better- look at getting a look at some guys at the end of the O&M bench here.

As in… start=finish.
Go’on and finish BeeCee off the (bleep) off from the start.

Scrubs need love(s), too!

Sixty-eight. (Yes, we owe you one).
Although, BeeCee has been trapped below 68 points in every A.c.c. L less one.

So, that is my magic number here men… anything O&M north of sixty-eight and we get this one done.
As BeeCee has tallied 68 (or mo’) once since early January!




(69% confidence interval)
Virginia Tech=72, Boston College=67

please support the VT F.C.A.!

  1. You are the “Ramblin’ Jack” Elliot of sports prognostication my good man…. It was a long journey to get to the meat of your column. But good on ya, as the old Bluefield Beaver came up with a good summary. AH

  2. Queue up the coach’s speech in the Revenge of the nerds regarding the loss to BC last time “…you just got your asses whipped, by a bunch of goddamn nerds. [removes hat and throws it against wall] NERDS!! Well, if I were you I would do something about it. I would get up and redeem myself in the eyes of my father, my Maker, and my coach!” If nothing else they should be motivated to defend.

    1. They sure have Mike’s digits.
      Every # so far at that…



  3. b.street, another missed prediction……the boys are really letting u down this year.

    They are the “not ready for prime time players”.

    Remember this the next time u predict a hokie win.

    Rock on b.street!
