III. Mission Excellence: "Bring Back BC"
With scholarship football returning to the Patriot League and to Mt. St. James, lots of alums are inquiring as to when we might see Boston College back on the schedule.

How about 2017? Why then?

Read the story below as to the 10 reasons why a game against the Eagles in 2017 would be spectacular and would serve as the cornerstone of a 5 year plan designated Mission Excellence.

One of the reasons is the simple fact that 2017 represents the 75th anniversary of perhaps Holy Cross' greatest athletic victory ever, that being the 55-12 win over those very same Eagles.

IV. Thank You
A few weeks back I was in attendance at the Spring Game/Alumni Game and post game barbecue.

Major thanks to Dan Adams for rallying the alumni troops who once again put up a W. Many of the alums clearly still "got it." Well done, gentlemen.

During the post-game barbecue, countless current Crusaders thanked me for the help and guidance they have received from their mentors. I want to once again thank all 125 alums involved in this fabulous program. I graciously accepted the Jackie Mo' Award on your behalf.

I'm going to see 120 of you at Blackstone National the end of May, right?

Get involved, especially those in the reunion classes. Rally the troops and come to the outing. LET's WIN !!
