More opponent previews

Now that Scout finished all of their team previews, I thought it was a good time to revisits some of our other opponents. (Part I is here.)

Clemson -- The Tigers have new Offensive Coordinators. It will be a "co" set up. I hope it blows up in their face. They have so much talent that they will win plenty of games, but this will be the year to see if Chad Morris was really the brains behind Dabo's operation.

Duke -- We should be able to run on Duke, which will make the road game more manageable. They also are breaking in a new QB.

Louisville -- Will probably have a quarterback controversy this season. All three guys played last year and all three want to start when each gets healthy. As much as I want this to disrupt their season, Petrino's offense is usually so good that it doesn't matter who plays QB.

NC State -- Like Addazio, Dave Doeren enters his third year. Unlike BC, expectations are a bit high in Raleigh. Have they upgraded their talent enough to pass BC?

Notre Dame -- The Irish should be very good this year. We are in the easier portion of their schedule, so hopefully they will have had some momentum killing losses prior to playing us.

Virginia Tech -- The D should be really good again and no one has any ideas what to expect from the offense. A Virginia Tech in decline might not be good for the ACC, but it is great for BC.

3 wins out of 6 games here. 3 out of 4 from Part 1. 2-0 against Maine and Howard and we have an 8-win regular season.

ATL - I saw a bit on the news last night about a new Pete Frates fundraising approach featuring a Pete-in-BC-uniform bobble head.

The new bobble-head was featured at a minor league event and his father said Pete could not attend because "he was in the end stages of the disease." Sad stuff. I am guessing you might do a piece on the new fund raising pitch?

Anything that comes my way regarding Pete, I try to help, but unlike some other BC-related people and charities, I have no direct relationship with Pete and his family. If they reach out about specifics, I am always glad to help, but with all of these things I try not to intrude.
