At BC's level, Power 5, most jumps from 1AA are to coordinator's positions, not head coach. Unless someone gets hired there who's had some kind of professional relationship with Chesney, would not expect him to end up there.
The BC big wigs would freak out if they hired someone who, the last time they saw him coach, lost 62-14 (could have been even worse) to the guy they fired.
ACC is a southern conference. BC will never be able to recruit ACC caliber players, Not in New England. FBS is controlled by the South, Midwest and once in a while a couple West Coast schools. They are in a tough spot. too bad thy couldn't put together a solid Northeast conference.
Seems to me BC annually grabs recruits from NJ, Ohio and Pa in addition to Mass.
Have you studied their current roster ? I haven't.
Joe Moorhead of Miss St (formerly OC at Penn St and HC at Fordham) being mentioned by some as a candidate for the BC job - folks in Miss. would be happy to see him go as it hasn't worked out well there. This is just a rumor but it wouldn't surprise me if they talk to him

Well we damn sure know they didn't go three pages when Tom Gilmore was let go and Chesney was hired, just to make the comparison apples to apples! In fact, I can't remember a BC related comment when HC hired Marcus Blossom.
Eagle Outsider's new coach thread is at 28 pages currently....whenevah you think some of us go too far here, check that board out sometime.
We can only imagine, (actually we could check it out if we desired), what goes on with Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Auburn, etc.), message boards.
Other boards can be most entertaining. I remember checking the Notre Dame board one time and a poster said something along the lines of "we could do a lot better in sports if only the administration provided some support".....
I used to visit the Fordham board from time to time--most entertaining to read the posters unrealistic expectations about the basketball program
The NJ Big 5 or is it 6 is awesome, a recruiting hotbed for the FBS Power 5 and the NFL. A couple of years ago my hs alma mater had the # 1 NY hs football team in the Tri-State and we were # 6 behind the NJ schools. Whoa! Gotta' get more of those Jersey Boys up to the hill. LoveHC
Jersey HS sports eats NYC and NY State alive. These programs are also a big reason why you never hear about the big public schools in Rockland County making any major waves sports-wise (outside of track, cross country, country club sports) like Suffern, Clarkstown North & South, North Rockland, Spring Valley, Pearl River, Nanuet, etc. Its because the top athletes in these towns all go to Catholic school in Jersey.
