so much for that
Boston Globe profile of new Boston College AD Brad Bates. Bates was a football walkon during the Bo Schembechler era in the late 1970s.
Given the way Dave Brandon has scheduled with other ADs with Michigan ties (Jeff Long-Arkansas, Bob De Carolis-Oregon St, Warde Manuel-UConn, & Derrick Gragg-EMU), I bet we will see Boston College on Michigan's football schedule soon.
Brad Bates, who Bo Schembecher thought would make a great Michigan AD in "Bo's Lasting Lessons," leaves Miami (NTM) for Boston College, according to the BC school paper The Heights. Bates played under Bo from 1977 to 1981 as a walk-on DB.
We are just a few minutes away from puck drop in Tampa for the 2012 Frozen Four.
Our 4:30 game is Union vs Ferris State (ESPNU) and the 8:00 pm game will be Boston College vs Minnesota (ESPN2). Should be another day of great hockey so tune in if you get the chance.
At least it sounds complimentary to me. Emphasis mine.
"There's a certain BC type of player that I like to have. It's hard to describe it but, he's gotta be — this is where he wants to go to school, he wants to compete at a very, very high level, and he wants to go to school," York said. "Because it's not an easy place to play Boston. There's pressure on the kids that go to BC or BU, and they have to handle that type of pressure. Michigan is the same way — you go there, you have to be ready to play."
