What non-BC fans are saying
I think BC bloggers were so quick to attack the Donahue excuse narrative because we feared BC would face criticism at the end of the season when they would presumably fire Donahue. The continued losing -- especially to undermanned teams like Georgia Tech and Notre Dame -- is ending any need to combat a media narrative. If Twitter is any indication, the media expect Donahue to be fired. Take a look at some of these comments over the last few days.
If he’s not, someone at Boston College is asleep? RT @thrillis4: @lebrownlow Donahue on the hot seat?

So who will be BC's coach next season?

Wondering if Steve Donahue will survive a 6-19 record and bottom of the ACC with this being his 4th year at BC.Now that is just a small sample of ACC folks following another loss. It is not going to influence Bates. But it does show that some others expect more from us. I know our fans do. I just wish the Boston media would share the same perspective.
