Basketball wins and other links

The basketball team beat Philadelphia on Sunday. They're a Division II team, so it doesn't do much for BC's resume. However, I am glad we finally won.

Matt Patchan turned out to be one of the key players of the season. It worked so well because he was immediately available and had a prior relationship with Addazio. Another Florida player just graduated early, is available and looking to transfer. This time it is QB Tyler Murphy. Speculation on his destinations include BC.

BC offered Evander Holyfield's son. As an example of the change in mindset, Holyfield is a 2016 prospect!

One columnist explained why he voted for Williams for Heisman.

Brian broke down the votes for Williams. I guessed that he would earn around 50 1st Place votes. He only received 29.

Williams and Arizona Running Back bonded on the award circuit.

From reading the column, it appears that Murphy from Connecticut will be at BC due to the strange rules for early graduates and years of eligibility. The story on Holyfield is strange. He is only a freshman. You also have to remember the genetics of Holyfield. He only has one ear due to Mike Tyson and the DNA was affected. The son was born "with only one ear". If the yelling of Addazio bothers him, then he will just shift where he stands. Santa lives.

Good stuff with Florida QB Tyler Murphy thinking of BC.

Liked this quote from article: "Florida also will have a new offensive coordinator, and numerous reports have the Gators switching from a pro set to something that incorporates a lot of spread-offense components. Driskel and Grier both fit that style; interestingly, so does Murphy."

And look at who recruited Murphy to Florida: Tyler Murphy Rivals page

Senior Florida OL Silberman is also transferring. Might we get him too?

Good stuff. Matt Patchan was a great p/u for us. It would be great if we could get more like him.

Nice catch mod34b

I didnt watch Florida too much... anyone have a scouting report on Murphy?

if he chooses to come to BC, maybe we can redshirt Wade and not force feed a true freshman

Just throwing it out there.....all this talk about Florida transfers got me thinking, if Muschamp gets fired, does Florida become Addazio's next "dream job"?

Reading this blog post, it definitely seems to be a possibility:

ESPN names 2 BC Eagles to their All America team. One is easy to guess, but the other was quite a nice surprise.

It is a nice surprise considering he was not even a finalist for the Groza award.

There are other Florida players leaving-not just Murphy:

"...GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Six players, all on the offensive side of the ball, will not return to the Florida Gators next fall.

Offensive lineman Ian Silberman is one of five players who are transferring from Florida.
Sophomore tight end Kent Taylor, true freshman quarterback Max Staver, redshirt freshmen fullback Rhaheim Ledbetter and offensive linemen Quinteze Williams and Trevon Young will transfer. Junior offensive lineman Ian Silberman, who is graduating on Saturday, plans to play his final season at another school...."

Murphy would do well at North Dakota State.

He played okay against lesser competition, but really struggled against the better defenses in the SEC. Of course, he had little help at WR. You know, 'cause it's only Florida. Not like they play high school football in that state. Recruiting is really tough.

Sarcasm aside, let's start fresh.
