Ugly

This is complete domination...

There aren't any words left to describe what our athletic department has become. It's so much bigger than one coach, one program, one...anything.

This kind of outclassing shouldn't happen at the collegiate level.

I'm posting on the men's lax board but it's so much bigger than this sport.

FWIW - It's 15-2 with 11 to go.

I stopped by the campus today on the way to the Water Gap (which was great).
Our games are too ugly to watch.
I know nothing about lacrosse but I know we need new coaches in several other sports.
Just do it. It can't get any worse.
Evaluate each job.
If in doubt, terminate.
This is D1.

Worth noting is the fact that this is only BU's third season fielding a lacrosse team. The embarrassments to LAFAYETTE just won't stop. It's inconceivable to most of us that our athletic programs have fallen to this depth.

Well, the woman weren't doing any better when I left. They were up 5-2 and had the ball in the offensive end with less than 2 minutes left in the half. Seemed like they would hold the ball for last shot. Nope, they gave up the ball and Colgate scored 2 goals before the half to close the score to 5-4. Colgate came out strong in the second half scoring 4 goals in the first 4 minutes of the second half. Exit stage right.

Bruce.  Do the right thing and do it now.  

Failing that, President B do the right thing and lets start to move on.  This has become a culture of losing and change only comes from top down.  We have been watching for years, its not about funding or admissions, or injury or any of the other pieces we blame.  Its the whole, and unless something changes it just keeps going.  Stop it now.

We tell students and parents sending their kids (and $) here we don't settle for mediocrity - well unless we change this we certainly do, only worse.

I don't think this athletic program wants to go from embarrassing to who-cares?; but, with each passing day, I become less sure of that.

Bruce is an administrator not a leader.  We need leadership not administration - those come cheap.  I fear academia does not understand the difference.

Barry Alvarez (Wisc. AD) to Mike Eaves (ice hockey coach for 14 yrs at Wisc. with an overall winning record, barely) after 4-win season two yrs ago:  "You're the gatekeeper of hockey.  I'm the gatekeeper of this department.  We both have a responsibility."  Eaves won 8 games this year and was fired.  
   Bruce saying that to a coach?
   Alison saying (some version of) that to Bruce?

Bruce would give the coach an extension after doubling the win total from the year prior!

Convincing Alison and the BOT of the importance of a successful athletics program is like "explaining fire to fish."
