    the side opposite the largest angle is the largest side and so on

    So the greatest side would be BC?

    largest side is BC since it is opposite the largest angle

    The largest side will always be your hypotenuse, and your shortest will always be an adjacent angle.

    @Compassionate this is not trig, there is no right angle here

    In basic theory, that's how I understand it. Hyp is the largest, opposite from that is the second, and your last is your adjacent. Triangles always take this format except in special cases.
