Well, there’s no Boston College football this week. That’s a bummer. How are you going to get through your weekend? We’re glad you asked.
When Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh, WCAS ’09, returns from a trip abroad, he’ll have an ordinance waiting for him that, if signed, would directly interject local government into the BC athletic department and every other athletic department in the city.
City Councilor Josh Zakim has taken it upon himself to push college athletic departments in the city to protect their athletes better. Although the NCAA has been slow to change policies for players’ health and safety, it is not the city’s place to step in and intervene.
Thanks to Famous Jameis, we compiled a list of phrases BC athletes could scream in Lower to receive a similar punishment.
In both the new SuperFan Zone before the game and the football game itself, BC successfully created an atmosphere around the game that complimented the upset over the Trojans.
Concurrent with the start of the football season, the Boston College athletic department implemented new features to the Gold Pass—an athletic event ticketing mechanism available to students via their Boston College student IDs and now through a smartphone app.
BC Athletics has improved the Gold Pass experience with a new app that tracks student attendance and offers bonus points. Their new “Superfan Zone” is a worthwhile attempt to enhance student spirit before games.
Predicting that this Saturday’s football game against USC will draw prohibitively large crowds to Shea Field, BC has allocated 10 wristbands per tailgating spot to disperse at the holder’s discretion.
Nothing says November football in Boston like some soft-shell crab, cucumber, avocado, and rice. A simple spider roll won’t do, though. The Heights editors went ahead and came up with a menu for tomorrow’s home opener.
