Jeff's Initial Reaction to Spaziani Hire

Jeff: I am very disappointed in Gene, the athletic department, and Boston College today. If Frank Spaziani is the best choice for the job now, why was he not the best choice for the job a week ago, or two years ago? Spaz is starting to get up there in age which doesn't bother me too much ...

But what does bother me is that BC just paid Jeff Jagodzinski approximately $2 million to walk out the door and go find another job in the NFL or wherever he chooses. They did this seemingly because it is best for the program. If getting rid of Jags and promoting Spaz is best for BC, why did we bring Jagodzinski in in the first place? Why pay him to walk away? Why should I continue to support the program financially if money is going to be thrown around so carelessly in this tough economic time.

In the last two years, I have gone to both ACC Championship Games and sat in the most expensive seats that BC was selling to the game. Why? Why not just get extremely cheap scalper tickets? Because I wanted to support the program financially as well as emotionally. Well, I will continue to support the program in any way I can, but it will not be financially because clearly the football program does not need help in that way. I have been living in South Carolina for four years and have continued to purchase 3 season tickets in my name, but I will not do that anymore. When I go to games I will get extra tickets from friends, or buy tickets on eBay or stubhub for typically cheaper than face value. Gene has sent some messages in the past week and the one that I am getting loudest and clearest is that the football program does not need my couple hundred dollars for season ticket sales and an additional couple hundred for ACCCGs and bowl game tickets which they are required to purchase anyway. While I will continue to attend just as many games, I will go about purchasing tickets by whatever method is best and cheapest for me, without worrying about purchasing through the BC ticket office in 2009.

I hope Spaziani enjoys more success than Jags. I will certainly support him and the program, but as a fan, an alum, a Flynn Fund donor, and a season ticket holder, I will show my frustration with the program in my own way which will not be to not come out and support the players on Saturdays whenever I can.
