Ryan coming back to BC (for workouts) and other links

Matt Ryan will not throw at the NFL combine. Buried in this story is his explanation:

The first question Matt Ryan fielded was about the No. 1 overall pick in the draft. His name has come up in every press conference involving a quarterback today, and it’s pretty obvious he’s the measuring stick in this year’s group of QBs.

In an interesting turn of events, Ryan will not be participating in throwing events here, just the running events. He said Boston College has “put up a bubble” around its stadium so Ryan and the other Eagles can continue to work out, and Ryan said he’s more comfortable throwing to people he knows, so he’ll conduct his own workout for throwing drills sometime soon.

As for where Ryan goes...Atlanta won the coin flip for the third overall pick. Mel Kiper thinks they might use that pick to move up to No. 1 and take Ryan.

The City of Boston is now against BC's plans for the Brighton campus too.

Georgia Tech and UVA postponed their game Thursday night because of a leaky roof. If and when the game gets rescheduled will certainly have an impact on the ACC tournament seeds.

Many of you probably read this in the Herald, but I think it is interesting to read Al's take on Rice entering the draft and player's testing the waters. I don't think Rice is ready for the NBA. I imagine Al doesn't either and will be honest with him. I hope he stays.

The school's site posted an interview with Josh Southern.

Bob V. took note of Rivals labelling BC an overachieving program.
