Could BC be terrible this year and miss out? Sure. But I just don't see it. There remains enough winnable games on the schedule and enough talent on D that BC should get to the required number of wins. If not, Jarmond will have to make some tough decisions early in his tenure.

You can also see that Defensive Coordinator Jim Reid is pretty pleased with things. It is only a tweet, but there is plenty of truth in his comment. Camps are the best way for the staff to get a feel for a player.

I don't know if the ACC Network will be a financial success, but it looks like the conference and ESPN are committing the resources needed so that there will be lots of coverage and quality production.

I find it interesting that this news comes just a day after the Football team slipped in a very, very late academic qualifier. You would hope that the school had a consistent policy on athletic admissions. Ultimately we are still a school and trying to keep some semblance of an educational mission with our players. I get it. However, we do need some leeway and the coaches need to know how far they can go.A tough hit for the Eagles: Eeli Tolvanen, a likely first round pick tomorrow, has received a thumbs down from the BC admissions department.— USHR (@USHRhockey) June 23, 2017

Athlon always quotes an anonymous coach about each team. Often times it can get catty. No so with BC this year. Here is what one ACC assistant said, "They just don't have the same kind of skill players that the other schools in the league have, but they're very sound in what they do."
The Athlon preview online also ranks the all-time best college football players of the Athlon era. Flutie only came in a No. 49. That is a big disservice and shows lack of perspective. Flutie's stats look small time now, but his offense helped change college football.
Our current QB was ranked 105 among all starters entering the season.

The focus of recruiting has been the 2018 class, yet Addazio just added one more piece to his incoming freshmen group. On Wednesday, New York DT Jaleel Berry signed with BC. I like this signing because he was personally scouted by Pasqualoni and has DT size now.
Berry is only available because he qualified so late in the process. While that is usually a red flag for BC, Addazio somehow got him through. The fact that he also had a scholarship available shows how tightly he is managing the roster. As soon as one guy drops out, the position is filled.
Best of luck to Berry. This could end up being a great BC story.

Normally I don't pay attention to the companies BC uses for construction and renovation. Maybe due to the size and the profile of the project, Skanska sent out a press release. BC is still keeping their mouth shut.
