Captain Crane and other links

The team voted Chris Crane and Mike McLaughlin captains for this season. It may seem inconsequential, but I find it to be a good sign that the players have confidence and like their new QB.

The defense continues to tear apart the offense. You can read recaps here (Globe), here (Herald), and here ( Don't read too much into this...a very similar thing happened last season.

The team took pictures Thursday. As far as guys who won't be photographed...Patrick Neumann is not on campus. No link yet. I've heard various rumors but nothing troublesome to BC. Regardless with a recruiting class of 29, any program is going to have some washouts.

Neutral parties think BC and ND are rivals. (Thanks to Dan for the link.)

Former Eagle Brian Leetch is a soon to be Hall of Famer.

Here is an interview with Ryan from The Sporting News. (Thanks to Mike for the link.)

The ACC Football Report posted their BC preview.

Yeah it should be an interesting matchup when Ga. Tech shows up at your place in the Fall. I expect it to really be a defensive struggle.

Don't worry about the offence! We are going to score and you know what we won't let people score.

I used to work for the team, doing the video work, when I was in school and I learned that you really can't judge the offence from practice when they are going up against the 1st team d. The Defense become so familiar with our playbook they have a huge advantage over the offence. They pretty much no what's coming and can jump routs.
I would be more worried if the Defense was giving up a ton of big plays.
