Previews, previews, and other links

The NYT's college blog put out their usual solid preview of BC. The writer Paul Myberg did his homework. He predicts Tuggle prevails at QB and has BC as a borderline bowl team.

Athlon's preview is a little more dated and didn't have the latest on Davis.

Looks like rising soccer star Charlie Davies could transfer to a French team.

Nice plug from Myerberg, he definitely read the blog before writing this.

Would second ATL's opinion of the write-up. Nicely done.

from ESPN, Pat Forde:

BC - VT ranked #10 in red-hot college fb rivalries

Why It's Hot Now: The former Big East opponents have upgraded their rivalry in the ACC, facing off four times in the past two years -- twice in the regular season and twice in the ACC title game. In those meetings the regular season has belonged to the Eagles and the postseason has belonged to the Hokies. With BC's moving on to its third head coach in the last four years, there's no telling how that might affect the rivalry.

Upper Hand Today: Tech has the league hardware and BCS bowl appearances on its side, which more than offsets losing three of the last five in the series.

Upper Hand Historically: The Hokies own an 11-6 all-time series lead, including seven straight from 1996 to 2002.

Baldwin the Eagle to HokieBird: Which former Atlanta Falcons No. 1 draft pick would you rather be, Michael Vick or Matt Ryan?

HokieBird to Baldwin the Eagle: What's it like to have head coaches walk out on you more often than John Daly's wives?

Wow, I had completely forgotten about Dominique Davis. Is that bad?

Davies' move to a bigger team than Hammarby is great news for his career and speaks to his potential with the USMNT. He does the BC program proud.
