Happy Time: Ridiculous Recruiting Story and Oates

No BC birthdays of note today or this week. If you know of any, please leave them in the comments section.

Happy Trails this guy. The Eagle in Atlanta linked to this story about a New York recruit who, while speaking with Jags and Bill McGovern, was interrupted by a helicopter landing on his HS practice field. Out came Greg Schiano and assistant Kyle Flood to recruit him for the Rutgers Scarlet Knights. This leads me to ask three things:

  • What is Schiano doing wasting my parents and the good people of the State of New Jersey's tax dollars gallavanting around in a helicopter?
  • Who doesn't want to play for this guy?
  • And who is wowed by a helicopter landing on their practice field? Not a BC Guy.

This series of events lead to another classic quote from Jags [as reported by the Globe's Mark Blaudschun]:

"If that's what it takes [to get someone], I don't know," said Jagodzinski with a laugh. "I told Billy we should have shown him the jet packs we had under our seats."

We here at BC Interruption absolutely love Jags, if only because he is a quote machine!


Happy Anniversary John Oates. On this day yesterday, you were kidnapped and replaced with ... someone else completely and had the game of your life. 5-5 from beyond the arc (absolutely on fire in the first half), 8 for 8 from the floor and finished with 21 points, 4 boards, 3 steals and 3 blocks. Oates had 0 points in his last game against Clemson!

I don't know what you've done with the real Johnny Oates, but I like what you've done with the place.
