Boston College AD DeFilippo Apologizes For Blaming ESPN For ACC Expansion
Published October 12, 2011
TWITTER REAX: DeFilippo's apology drew a variety of columnists on Twitter yesterday. CBSSports.com's Dennis Dodd wrote, "Possible to unring a bell?" The N.Y. Times' Pete Thamel wrote, "it was inappropriate to express personal feelings that might have been construed as the position of BC or the ACC." Former college basketball coach Tom Penders: "What kind of clown is BC's AD? He's now leaking that ESPN influenced ACC's expansion plans. Hey Gene Difillipo,BC is 1-5 in FB & Bball down!" VMW Communications Owner Vince Wladika: “Should Big East sue ESPN for 'tampering'? Is that why BC AD now claims what he said about ESPN’s involvement was 'erroneous'?” The Hartford Courant's Paul Doyle wrote, "DeFilippo Comments About ACC Might Help UConn After All."
