The Boss's kid and other links

Arnold and Maria's kid couldn't get in to BC, but Springsteen's son did. Evan will be a freshman this fall. I eagerly await Bruce's pregame intros on ESPN.

Interesting article on Billy Flutie, including the mention that he tried to get another shot at QB. I've wondered what the emergency QB situation would be this season. If something happened to both Crane and Davis, would they move Boek back? Go with Johnson? Burn Tuggle's redshirt? Does Flutie move over? Let's hope we don't get to that situation.

The Globe is relaunching their college blog. This is either the third or fourth iteration of it. What I hope they understand is for it to be a success, they need steady, good content and prominence within Boston.com. Does anyone expect it to work this time?

Patrick Muldoon is still considering BC.

Former Eagle Jason Delaney is working his way through the Pirates' minor leagues.

BC Guy Tom Pelissero is on the Favre/Packer beat.

Want to read a longish explanation of which conference is the best? Although this reinforces the SEC's dominance, it does go against the general perception and recognize the strength of the ACC.

Matt Ryan's NFL highlights for those who missed it. (Thanks to Alex and Jonathan for the link.)

With Bruce's kid in school and JoJo's application already submitted, it looks like we may have some nice halftime shows in our future.

Also, with Flutie punting and holding field goals and PATs, I smell some nice opportunities for Logan trickery.

Finally, what's the latest on Fontaine? Will someone please call his parents and tell them that the UGA Football graduation rate hovers somewhere south of 50%? The place is an academic joke. If this kid doesn't make the NFL, doesn't he want a decent chance at a good job?

Fontaine's a gonner. Forget about him.

Yup. Officially committed to UGA at 1 p.m. today. We'll at least he won't have to worry about going to class.

Eagle1, you might want to be careful what you say around here about UGA. Atleagle got his MBA from there.

I take no offense to the slights to UGA. BC is always first in my heart. Athletes can get a very good education at UGA, however, the typical experience of a football player at both schools is night and day. Fontaine's loss. I wish him the best but always have a distrust of decommits. You can't go home again...

ATL knows that he's the man, but, as he points out, facts are facts when it comes to that football team. Academics take a major back seat to 40-times down there. UGA Football's graduation hovers around 45%. Additionally, although this past year has not been a great one with respect to BC guys staying out of trouble, BC football players are well north of those of UGA on the good-citizen scale.
