Cycling through coaches is a hit or miss proposition. It’s difficult to find very good football coaches. That’s the weakness in the “embrace the stepping stone “ approach. The answer is to retain your top coaches and build your program into a national brand. Think Jim Calhoun at UConn or Frank Beamer at VT. HAFLEY could do that at BC. BC is already well respected nationally. With the Fish Field House they finally can hold their own facility wise. 30 million in ACC revenue and growing really helps with coaches salaries and the recruiting budget all of which have grown substantially with the hiring of Hafley. The future is very bright for BC football.

    Go Eagles!
    Ultimately, what did Frank Beamer win? I think VT made it to the National Championship game once while he was the coach. And I seem to remember I guy named Vick at the QB. Who was an in-state recruit. Calhoun, I'll give you, but basketball and football are kind of apples and oranges recruiting wise because a basketball team only needs to recruit a roster of 12 versus a roster of over 50.

    Hafley is doing a good job of recruiting so far, but don't lose fact that those incoming recruits are all 3 star recruits, not 4 and 5 star recruits like he was able to attract when he was recruiting at Ohio State, where his own recruiting skills were greatly augmented by the fact that he was recruiting them to Ohio State. When he starts to continually lose recruiting battles for the top recruits to the Ohio States of the world, it will get old quickly. If he is successful at BC, and has the opportunity to move to a job at a top school, he will be gone.

      100% agree.

        Hafley was only at OSU for one year and doesn't have any previous connection to BC. Completely agree that if he wins here he will then move on to a bigger gig. I would have no issues with that.

          If he has that level of success, hopefully BC goes all out to keep him. It would be a devastating loss especially given his age. Pay him the 6-8 million to keep him. Eventually, hopefully it’s Hafley, BC will get a break and be able to retain a great football coach for 20 plus years. The grass is not always greener on the other side of the fence especially if the money is comparable. BC is a lot better job than most people think.

          Go Eagles!

            Where does he play?

              I don't see any info on this kid other than his own twitter announcement. Seems like a walk on to me.

                Is he a real recruit? I looked him up and couldn't find anything. Maine had a player, Mike Golden, in the 80's and was curious if he was related.

                  He announced on Twitter. Whether that's fake or not, no clue.

                    Per Heisenberg, Posma pushed back to 2021, leaving only 5 incoming forwards. He no longer lists Dempsey as a future 2021 recruit. Is it possible he's coming in the fall? (He's 19.) Or decommited?

                        Dempsey? Not sure I even know who that is. Heisenberg does a good job but he's not always accurate with the incoming year data.

                          I'm pretty sure this isn't a real person. Or at best is a fake loosely based on a real but obscure person. His profile picture is of a different player and an EliteProspects writer tweeted at him asking who he is and got blocked.

                            Jack Dempsey committed in March 2020 (most likely for 2021-22) who fell off Heisenberg's spreadsheet probably when it was converted from the 2020-21 season to 2021-22:

                              Heisenberg now has Dempsey coming in the fall.

                                Eagles landed a transfer from UAH. https://www.uscho.com/stats/player/mid,31323/Liam-Izyk/
