Alums in the pros and other news

Quinton Porter is going north of the border to play football in the CFL. The article takes an angle that will probably follow Quinton the rest of his pro career -- "he was benched for Matt Ryan."

Former Eagle Chuck Kobasew signed an extension with the Bruins.

Jonathan Loyte is still looking for a team after not getting an offer from Tampa Bay.

Here is more on recent commit Arthur Lynch-Fontaine.

Interesting note: the ACC schedules the fewest cupcakes of any of the major conferences.

A Big Lead reader crunched the numbers and concluded that the BCS bowls are not very competitive. My bigger complaint is that New Year's Day is not as fun as it used to be. Now you get six games. Back in the day you could watch nine in day-long football extravaganza.

This is the best defense I've seen of Matt Ryan from a non-BC fan. (Thanks to Brendan O. for the link.)

A little more background on our new recruits.

I love the video from the Sporting News blog.

"And Lane Stadium goes silent."

It will never get old.

Can we please not bring up Quinton Porter in relation to BC? That drudges up some awful, awful memories. He should be known as the guy who should have sat his entire career behind Ryan (and Peterson)

Atleagle... have you found any articles about Matt and his experience representing BC at the NCAA National Leadership Conference in 2006?
