2011 BC Football Retrospective, Part III: All The Rest (Soaring To Glory)
This year was not a success by any rational measure. I am not into moral victories, and I don’t believe 4-8 is an "improvement," despite the results getting slightly better towards the end. The season didn’t start with the Maryland game, it just started to not be as bad. One must consider the entire body of work, and on that basis, it was not a good year. One must also consider that this is the first year in over a decade where BC has not been involved in postseason play. The bottom line is what matters to me, and in the words of Bill Parcells, "you are what your record says you are." It says BC was 4-8, and the last time I checked, BC has gone from 9-5 > 8-5 > 7-6 > 4-8 since 2008. The trend is disturbing enough.
