More on Coleman and other links
I am really drinking the kool aid on this but does anyone else think the Johnathan Coleman story bears a strong resemblance to Michael Oher's? For those who don't know, Oher is the center of Michael Lewis's excellent book Blind Side (a great Christmas gift for football fans). Kid with a rough upbringing: Check. Wants to be a basketball star: Check. Pulled out of rough surrounding and put in ritzy day school: check. Proded by new coaches to come out for football: check. Lands DIA scholarship! Now Oher received a lot more attention than Coleman, in part because he was playing in the heart of Memphis and in part because he played more than one year of football. But still, this sort of flyer has a lot of potential.
A reminder for Oklahoma papers: BC has the highest winning percentage in bowl games.
Jake Sinkovec received Defensive Player of the Year honors in his area.
Brian St. Pierre is still hoping that he can get a chance to shine like other back ups.
Vandy thinks they are practicing in the cold. Have they seen the weather in Boston?
Pat Muldoon, who once seemed destined for BC, is going to Wisconsin.
