Cuse kickoff time and other links

The ACC announced that BC's game with Syracuse will be a 12:30 start. It is considered a regional game and carried on most of your regional affiliates. (Probably similar to the same station lineup that carried Wake or NC State.) It will also be BC's Senior Day. While I would have preferred a national slot on one of the ESPN networks, at this point I just want BC to avenge last year's heartbreak to the Orange.

The spread of the BC-Florida State game is now up to FSU-20. But as this betting column noted FSU has faced inflated spreads all year and are only 3-7 ATS.

Hanlan made the preseason Wooden list. Based on the first two games, the team and Olivier will have to improve to remain on the list.

In Addazio's press conference, he twice took a dig at BC facilities. They went to Foxboro to use their indoor facility today. Both times there was frustration in His tone.

Pretty entertaining!

Interesting note in the Ohio St. game. It was pointed out that OSU has only lost three games since Meyer took over. If OSU runs the table in the Big 10 they will have a three year record of 36-3. Their Big 10 record will be 25-1. OSU record against the ACC isn't so bright. Over that time span they are 0-2 vs the ACC. They lost to VT and Clemson. They didn't even play the top team in the ACC ( FSU ).

A typical BC pattern here would be a huge adrenalin win over FSU followed by a deflating WTF loss the following week to Syracuse. A better test of progress for BC would be a decent showing at FSU followed by a solid win over Cuse. Although I'd take an adrenalin victory over FSU and a business like win over Cuse. Do fairy tales come true?

i'd much prefer an FSU upset followed by a WTF home loss to Cuse.
