New Boston College-related accounts appear every year on Facebook, Tumblr, memes and, of course, Twitter. With so many clever BC hashtags cropping up, it’s easy to miss some of the more hilarious accounts, like @NotCoachSpaz.
Everyone is sincerely proud of the fact that BC has an all-star Division I football team. Just imagine Saturday afternoons without tailgating at the Mods! But for all of you who slink out of the games early, or slyly change the subject from BC football to BC hockey when people ask about college sports, you definitely should be following @NotCoachSpaz.
It’s a hilarious account that sarcastically makes fun of the team and the famously incompetent Coach Frank Spaziani. Some of its best Tweets are “The end-zone is lava!!! #BCEagles;” "300 followers!!! Probably more than will be in the stands by the end of the season #BCEagles;” and “I knew I forgot something this summer #BCEagles" with a picture of a to-do list with "Eat donuts," "Take nap," and "Cross arms" crossed off as completed and the fourth item "Coach defense" still unfinished.
So if you’re procrastinating from homework and need a good laugh, you should peruse the account @NotCoachSpaz.

What makes the Gavel so BANGin’? We keep it fresh. It’s drippin with swagger and is home to some of the coolest cats on campus. The Gavel is always fun and I’ve met nothing short of amazing people and writers here.
You have 24 hours to give prospective students a tour of BC and convince them to enroll. How do you spend the day? I’d start by getting some coffee and a personalized omelet at Mac. Then we’d go lose our voices at a football game and wear our super awesome Superfan shirts. We would then go see one of the amazing Acapella groups perform. We’d get some Mac N Cheese from the Rat for lunch. We would go see My Mother’s Fleabag for an awesome good time. Then we’d take a break and visit the dorms (i.e. sit in my room and watch Mean Girls…because Mean Girls.). We would then go to a hockey game, then to the Mods, and end the night at Late Night.
If you could go back in time and give yourself a pep talk the night before you moved into BC as a freshman, what is the most important piece of advice that you would give to your former self? Eat your vegetables and take a lot of pictures.
What is your favorite study spot on campus? The Rat
What is your go-to meal at Late Night? That delicious Simply Orange juice the dining halls always have stocked. This and a personal pizza topped with ketchup. Judge all you want, but ketchup on pizza is the best thing to happen since Game of Thrones.
What is the #1 most played song on your iTunes? “I Always Knew” by the Vaccines
What is the best Halloween costume that you have ever worn? I was Minnie Mouse as a kid. Not trying to brag, but I rocked the ears off that costume.
If you could only eat at one restaurant for the rest of your life, which would you choose? Del Taco
If you could befriend the main characters from any TV show or movie, who would you choose and why? Easy. Harry Potter. (I’m assuming) I’d get to go to Hogwarts, be a wizard AND be friends with Harry, Ron, and Hermione. It’s a win win, for me anyway. If I can’t be a wizard then i’d be friends with the main characters from This Is The End.
