New captains and other links
The BC football team elected three captains today. With the honor Mike McLaughlin becomes one of the rare two-year captains. Matt Tennant also got the nod. The surprise election was Rich Gunnell. Hopefully that is a sign the Rich is ready for a big year.
BC finalized a two-year basketball series with South Carolina. Adding an SEC team is a great idea for strength of schedule. My only quibble is that South Carolina provides another road game in the Carolinas. That's great for me and other BC fans in the southeast, but if we had played a Pac 10 or Big XII team, BC fans in other parts of the country would have been able to see the guys in person.
Raji remains a holdout in Green Bay. (Thanks to Mike for the link.)
Forbes is getting attention for its new college rankings. This is a potential challenge to US News' more established rankings. BC is in the Top 20 with Forbes.
