On Sunday night, the BC Eagles were on top of the world after their basketball team upended No. 1 North Carolina. Now, it's Thursday morning and things are not looking quite as rosy.
First, there was the whole Jeff Jagodzinski "unpleasantness." Firing your football coach to prove a point is never a fun day. But at least the basketball team was riding high. They skyrocketed from outside the Top 25 up to No. 17 after the UNC win and were pushing a 10-game win streak, so thing were looking pretty good for the remainder of the season. Now what's this about the Harvard game?
Oh. The Cambridge Snobs beat the BC Slobs last night, 82-70, marking the first time in school history that Harvard has beaten a ranked team and their first win over Boston College in 10 years. Point guard Jeremy Lin scored 27 points to lead the Crimson. (A nerdy Asian kid from Palo Alto who can ball. Nice job, Stanford.)
So much for all that. Maybe the Eagles gymnastics team could run over a puppy in their team van just to put a capper on this most excellent week.
