Experts predict the Pinstripe Bowl and other links

Most of ESPN's experts expect BC to win the Pinstripe Bowl. Phil Steele likes Penn State.

The Walter Camp Foundation also named Murphy the Connecticut Player of the Year. ESPN also published a nice feature on Murphy.

CJ Parson received a suspended sentence for his fight with a homeless man earlier this year.

Josh Bordner has many ties to Penn State and James Franklin.

The ECAC named Hilliman its Co-Rookie of the Year.

I had no idea the Eastern College Athletic Conference was still in existence!

ECAC??? huh... in what decade??

seems to be voluntary organization.

FBS football is very quirky .. BC, UVA, SYr, Pitt, PSU, WIsconin RU, WVU, UMass, MD, Temple

Wisconisin in ECAC?? WTF?? maybe a hockey thing

BC has no all stars. Yet UMass has 5! Temple has a few too

what a joke

The ECAC is still around, I believe a small group of sportswriters keeps it going, as far as awards, the Eastern Champion designation etc.

Wow, he beat out Flutie. That's a huge surprise.

Years ago the ECAC holiday festival in NYC was fun. BC played in it several times. The cornerstone was always the Johnnies. I understand the buck rules all, but we have lost quite a few nice traditions along the way.
