      Agreed, and that is where my concern is.

        I saw the bc blog tweet but didn't really care until Mav emailed me a reference to an unnamed bu player leaving the team on an eagleaction thread. I figured I'd connect the dots on my own and take it to Hoky. Who posted his comment at the exact same time. I didn't see his come in threes until after my question.

            You are absolutely correct. A test for leadership. Military units who suffer losses have to soldier on and in some cases they regruop and are successful and in others they spiral downward. This will certainly be a test for Chris Connolly and the guys with the "A".

            IIRC University of Arkansas FB team suspended 3 starting players at end of the 1977 season for, if I am not mistaken similar allegations. One was an All American Lineman and the other was a 1000 yeard rusher (Ben Cowins). They were headed to the ORange Bowl to play Oklahoma who was #2 ranked.

            Lou Holtz went to one of the early press conferences and was asked how the team would do in the absence of the 3 players. He commented to the effect that we are focusing on who is here not those who aren't. Backup runnig back Roland Slaes rushed for a then OB record and the Hogs whipped OU 31-6 Jnauary 1, 1978.

            There's the model. Move ahead and focus on who's here and hope that one or more individuals can seize the moment and step up.

                I suppose, but if the opportunity presents itself now, wouldn't it still be there after the season? I personally just don't see the sense in leaving midway through a season.

                  Completely see where you're coming from.

                  I've never seen the blog, all I know about it is it has been the 1st to report who is between the pipes for usand every instance it's been posted on EA/BUSCHO it has been right. But beyond that no clue about the blog.

                    I'll add that a "source" of mine also spoke with Charlie at some point today after this came out, and he told that person he was not leaving. When asked just now about the story of him going to Canada the person hadn't heard of it and said it would only be true if Charlie lied straight to them. Take that for what it's worth. And for the record, I'm not just making this up sarcastically.
                    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

                      Any chance Trivino's situation carries over to other players either by frustration their #1 center is gone, anger in how the school handled it or because they may have been with him during the drinking and been on their own 'secret probation' with JP?

                      Those are a few things that could cause somebody to seek the door quickly


                      Or, reading between the lines below, if Coyle hadn't done his work this semester or just failed an exam and is about to get some bad news regarding grades and eligibility...maybe he jumps before he gets pushed

                                I just asked my 14 year old cousin to start a blog, and he did. His blog is reporting BU no longer has an athletic department. Seems as credible as the BC blog. He said he had 49.3 sources for that report.
