Bad day for Boston College
The Transitive Property states that if a = b and b = c, then a = c.
When applied to sports, common logic says:
"Team A defeated Team B, and Team B defeated Team C. Therefore, team A will defeat team C."
So enter Harvard as Team A, Boston College as Team B and North Carolina as Team C and we prove that Harvard will defeat UNC.
Of course mathematicians will tell you that's an unsound application of the property, to which we say, bullshit! Harvard wouldn't beat North Carolina, but the Crimson should probably be ranked No. 3 in the country. Or maybe No. 2. Fuck Duke. And fuck you eighth-grade algebra.
Meanwhile, things in the Boston College football department weren't so warm and fuzzy either.
After head coach Jeff Jagodzinksi was told he could not interview for the Jets coaching vacancy, he did anyway and was promptly fired Wednesday.
The Big Lead says its a win-win, while we're still wondering who the fuck Jeff Jagodzinski is. Didn't the Eagles lose five games this year, including a bowl stinker against Vanderbilt? Um, why would any team be interested in this guy? And why would he risk getting fired when nobody in their right mind would want this guy?!
Anyway, Boston College had a shitty day and the rest of the world can smile upon its failure. It's not the Red Sox or Patriots, but any sports failure in the state of Boston is a national victory.
