Links from Jacksonville
Greetings from Jacksonville. Well, actually right outside the city on Amelia Island. Believe it or not, my being here at the same time as the inaugural ACC Championship is purely coincidental. (We are here for my wife’s company retreat.) Seeing the Hokie fans check in this morning -- knowing that BC would be here if Matt Ryan started the UNC game -- added to the bittersweet aspect of this season.
There is very little buzz around town about this game. Maybe it will build by Saturday. Here is an article on pros and cons of the game.
Kiwi made the AFCA Coaches’ All-American Team. Congrats.
Kiwi did not win the ACC player of the year or even the defensive player of the year. Those honors went to Chris Barclay D’Qwell Jackson respectively.
Here is a Q&A with John Swofford. I can’t tell you what a difference it makes to have a real leader and advocate as the Conference Commissioner.
Earlier this week former BC Jack Concannon died. BC grad Bob Ryan had a nice write up on his life and career.
BC is crawling up CNNSI's basketball power rankings.
