Bowl games, baseball and boxing

Interesting article in the Orlando Sentinel on the implications of the TV deal for the premiere Orlando bowl (f/k/a the Citrus Bowl) and how it will impact all the other second tier bowls. Basically the expanded BCS devauled their offering and so their payout should decline. Which means conferences might switch slots. The Sentinel makes a prediction on how it will shake out. Still doesn't look good for a Disney World trip for the Eagles, but most of the ACC options appear to be in the southeast.

MLB held its draft this week. I normally don't cover much BC baseball but it is nice to see a few kids get drafted. If I had only been tall and a lefty. Future draftees that aren't on the Cape are now playing in the Berkshires.

Finally, an odd note at the end of Ron Borges' column. It seems that former BC lineman Derric Rossy is now a boxer. The heavyweight ranks are so thin now, maybe he can make a run.
