Out of conference previews and other links
This writer previews our out of conference slate and thinks we took on too much. I agree that UCF will be a tough game, but this is the type of schedule we should be playing every year. Padding our win totals is not selling tickets or getting people excited about BC bowls. What is surprising is you haven't heard much talk from Gene or Spaz about the difficulty of our schedule in the lead up to the season.
BC is a finalist for New Jersey LB Michael Strizak.
BCI applauds Vanderbilt leveraging academics to land recruits. I think their success and Stanford's recent success selling academics is somewhat misleading. Duke, Stanford, BC, Vandy, Northwestern, etc have been selling their classroom experience and graduation rates for years. Vandy and Stanford's recent success recruiting is more about a fresh delivery and passion from new head coaches.
