Hockey sweeps PC, Hoops beats GT and other links

I don't give Hockey enough attention around here, so I thought I would start the night off with their sweep of Providence. Friday's game had a little more back and forth while Saturday, BC controlled from the start and never looked back. The team is showing no signs of rust from the Christmas break and will load up on Hockey East teams over the next few weeks.

Georgia Tech is not a good time. So when they were playing us close at times, I had fear that we might let things slip away. Fortunately, we hung on for the win. What most impressed me with those final few minutes though was that we made some big defensive stops. Uneven day for Reggie, but Corey Raji had a huge day and grabbed many key rebounds.

Dave Shinskie thinks he can win the starting job back next season.

BC recruit Paul Gaughan has been selected for the prestigious Big 33 game.

Oh, Dave. You're always good for a laugh.

Starter of... the Twins??

Uncle Dave's best shot of playing is as a Codi Boek style fullback. Maybe a more imaganitive OC will sprinkle in a few plays with him at FB and let toss a bomb.

Herald has Coleman and Claiborne as questionable but says Shakim has been practicing. Given that he got his redshirt burned for basically one catch it'd be nice to see Shakim have a breakout game.

Ice hockey has been, is and will be BC's best performing sport.
Nice to see it getting some recognition

Good for you Shinskie

The more competitive Shinskie is, the more competitive Reiig will be.

And if the starter gets hurt, it will be nice to have a chomping-at-the-bit backup

Everyone knock on wood right now.

Shinskie deserves an attaboy for keeping a positive attitude despite all the crap he's had to endure from BC fans, myself included I confess. If he's capable of winning back the starting job over a rapidly improving Rettig, that would be a good thing.

Go Eagles!

Channeling my BC quasi-Al Davis,I must declare,"Just score TD's, Eagles! Just score TD's!" We need to put up big points tonite in SF, and win this game with authority. When Chase, Dave or Marsco have any snaps this eve they need to be error free and on target. Take a page from Matt Hasselbeck's dismantling of the Saints and quiet the oddsmakers, shut down Nevada with great blocking and good pass protection, and throw some explosive pass play TD's. GO EAGLES! Let's win this thing!
