Williams' NFL future, NC State gametime and other links
Andre Williams' breakout year is getting attention among NFL scouts. I didn't think Williams had much of a chance to get drafted prior to the season. Running backs are a dime a dozen in the NFL. Plus he had never shown any consistency (part of that was scheme and injuries). Now that he has improved his already powerful running, NFL teams are taking notice. As the article states, he hasn't caught many passes. Can he add that element to his game? I also wonder about his pass blocking. And then there are his usage rates. He is carrying the ball a lot and most running backs have only so many hits in them. There is still a lot of football to play, but if he keeps averaging 150 yards a game, someone will draft him on Day 2.
The NC State game will kick off at 12:30 and will be carried on regional sports networks (mostly Fox). Whatever network carried the UNC game in your region is likely to carry this one.
I am all for passion at the game, but agree with the Heights Board on vulgar cheers. You're BC students. Use some wit.
KPL earned All ACC honors for his performance against VT.
HD thinks the Virginia Tech win was a "statement game" for BC and Addazio.
