Rumors abound that BC and Florida State will play in the primetime Labor Day slot on ESPN. That is great news. The curveball in the speculation is that the game will be held in Foxboro. Nothing is official, but here are my thoughts:
-- Huge national spotlight. Great publicity for Matt Ryan and a nice introduction for Jags
-- Not on campus. This is unfortunate. Having Gameday on Campus vs. a Foxboro set is a world of differnce. For better or worse it becomes about the game and not a showcase for the school. Getting the students to the game is also a major inconvenience.
But even with the drawbacks BC should do everything it can to make this happen. I just hope that something is done for the students so they can get to the game.
Clemson is also hoping to land FSU for the Labor Day slot.
