Looks like after this weekend, BC's contributions may include some payback to the Green Line:eek:

Apropos of the effects of the Hail Mary pass on BC's admissions standards, let me just pass along an observation from my cousin, who chaired the math department at Syracuse for many years.

Whenever the Orange football or basketball teams did well, the volume of applications invariably soared and so did the quality of the applicant pool. This phenomenon included prospective math majors (mathematicians delight in noticing correlations like that). Admitting better math majors delighted the senior math faculty because they would get to teach more advanced courses rather than introductory calculus. Admitting more math majors delighted the junior faculty because it improved their chances for tenure.

It was the unanimous view of the math department that lowering academic standards for approximately 100 students out of many thousands was a trivial price to pay if doing so achieved the aforementioned benefits for the math department! Faustian bargain or not, they prayed for the coming of another Jim Brown.

Is there any mystery as to why many newspapers and other periodicals are going out of business when the best they can do is publish trash like this article. I guess The Globe ran out of opportunities to print positive articles about anything BC or the other three institutions provide.

Not a BC fan in fact spend more time hoping they lose in any sport. However I must say that I am in the schools corner on this one. it makes no sense for them to give money to the government that has already spent itself poor. As far as the author What a TOOL.
