BC’s Sean Duggan leans on Luke Kuechly (BostonHerald.com)
"I didn’t play with (Kuechly) in high school but I practiced with him every day and I learned what I could from him because he was a great role model," said Duggan prior to yesterday’s practice at Alumni Stadium. "I try and watch film with him like two days a week. I try to learn as much as I can from him on the field and off the field. He’s a great guy and I want to be like him in a lot of ways."

"I was running with the twos [the second team] for a while and we get a lot of reps,’’ said Duggan. "The first couple of plays, I was nervous being a true freshman. But once you settle in, everything slows down. You trust your teammates next to you and just get the job done."
Given chance, Boston College football's Finch takes flight (The Boston Globe)
"He’s compact and he has some power and vision,’’ said BC coach Frank Spaziani. "He’s not a bowling ball, but he’s more like a duckpin ball. He has some good speed. I wouldn’t say he has blazing speed. He was hampered by some injuries and is not as fast as when he came here, but the more he plays, the more he is going to accomplish."

ACC upset watch: Week 10 (ESPN ACC Blog)
No, I don’t think BC is going to win, but I am willing to give them a chance. It’s a Thursday night home game for the Eagles, a long trip for Florida State on a short week, and BC is coming off its first ACC win of the season. The Eagles have shown improvement on the offensive line in recent weeks, and got their running game going at Maryland. FSU’s defense is one of the best in the country, though, and as long as the Noles are focused and don’t make silly mistakes, the Noles should win their fourth straight.

Steve Donahue was nice enough to sit down with Around the Res last week in order to field a few questions about his experiences at BC, his expectations for the year, and where he sees the program going in the long haul. After meeting Donahue, I can say that he is probably one of the toughest guys I've ever met, and he definitely brings a new intensity to our program. Special thanks to Dick Kelley at the athletic department for helping to set this up.
