"Unfortunately, our strength (our offense) just took a major ding. And it wasn't quite up to snuff with theirs anyway. And of course, what better way to break a stalemate than by committing an extra penalty or twelve? There's too much adding up here to like our chances very much in this game."

Sense of greatness at BC (Boston Globe)
""The kid from St. Xavier High School in Cincinnati who didn't fit the Ohio State mold of linebacker (not big enough) or defensive back (not fast enough) has fit in very nicely with a BC unit that leads the country in rushing defense.

No #31 will be worn today in honor of Jay McGillis: "DeLeon Gause was actually the McGillis award winner this year. (Davis last year.) Oddly enough, both are injured and won't play, so BC will forego the jersey this year and Gause and Davis will be introduced at the game as the past two winners."
