The hashtag #pcbb began during the dark times of the Keno Davis era at Providence College. It was a way for fellow Friars and fans to comiserate on Twitter. Now that Ed Cooley has arrived and turned things around it’s time the hashtag makes it’s way into everyday society. I’ll provide my own opinions here as well as links to articles and news involving, you guessed it correctly, #pcbb.
As for who I am:
My name is Mike Hopkins. I’m a 2010 graduate of Providence College so my time spanned the last year of the Tim Welsh era and the first 3 years of the Keno Davis era. Back in 2006 I signed up for the ScoutFriars.com message board and began posting under the username flyerlax06. Many people mistook the flyer for friar and some even thought I might be a random Dayton fan but the flyer refers to my high school, Chaminade. “We are the Flyers, strong and warriors bold….” Sorry. Embarrassingly enough that was my first email address (now defunct): firstname.lastname@example.org. I also used flyerlax06 as my AIM screen name. Good times. Simpler times.
I’ve always enjoyed writing and it’s always easier to write about subjects that you are passionate about so I decided to create my own Providence basketball website in January 2014. It’s been a fun ride so far and I’ll keep doing it for as long as it stays fun.
I’ve been credentialed for Providence home games at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center the last two seasons, as well as being credentialed for games at Mohegan Sun, the Barclays Center and the 2015 NCAA Tournament in Columbus, Ohio. I have also been credentialed for the Big East Tournament in 2015 and 2016. I also write occasinally for ScoutFriars.com and the SB Nation site BigEastCoastBias.com.
