Reading too much into the preseason All Conference team and other links
The ACC media members selected four Eagles onto their Preseason All-ACC Football team. The honorees were Anthony Castonzo, Thomas Claiborne, Montel Harris and Luke Kuechly. The only team with more was UNC. If we had the second most players on the squad and some of our better players were snubbed, does this mean we have the best talent in the ACC this year? I don't think we have the best talent, but the gap between BC and the conference powers is not a wide as the media or some at BC would leave you to believe. I think the team and the fans should use this list as a confidence boosters. BC can compete for the division. Don't let the excuse makers lower expectations. We are all about "ever to excel."
This preview thinks BC will go 10-2. I love the optimism, but don't think our schedule is as easy as they do.
Mike Gambino hired his first assistant Scott Friedholm. The Providence grad has coached at Navy and Maine.
Ryan Quigley spoke with his hometown paper while coaching at a kicking camp. He seems like another good BC guy.
IMG acquired our radio rights holder ISP Sports. This probably doesn't mean a whole lot for BC. The only real synergies might come in ad sales and marketing programs when IMG puts their marketing clients in ISP's broadcasts.
Here is a decent season preview from a Virginia blog.
BC hoops recruit George Matthews is trying to decide if he should go to prep school for a year or give college a shot now.
