College coaches enjoy Bruins’ Cup run (BostonHerald.com)
Count Boston College’s Jerry York as another coach who is happy to see the game back in the forefront of the local sports scene. “The Bruins showed how special hockey is to all of New England,” York said. “It was fun to watch. The lead stories on television. The front page of the Herald. . . . We haven’t had that in so long. It reaffirmed the belief of a lot of us. You saw Bruins T-shirts from Springfield to Watertown. We all benefit. All the young players now will grow up idolizing (Milan) Lucic, (Zdeno) Chara and (Tim) Thomas. It will spread out right down to youth hockey.
BC’s Reggie Jackson a man of mystery (BostonHerald.com)
Since the Boston College junior decided in early May to enter the draft, his stock has been all over the map. Some considered Jackson a potential lottery pick due to his impressive athleticism, while others rated the 6-foot-3 combo guard as a second-round talent.

The reality is, there are lots of smokescreens at this time of year, from agents trying to pump up their clients and teams trying to confuse competitors. I recall Braylon Edwards complaining in 2005 that the Dolphins had promised they would take him at No. 2. They took Ronnie Brown. Life moved on.

ACC team position rankings: RBs (ESPN ACC Blog)
"2. Boston College: Montel Harris could break a 33-year-old ACC rushing record this fall, and his backup, Andre Williams, is a bigger back who has proven more than capable of shouldering the load himself. Together they’re one of the best one-two combos in the league."

Until proven otherwise, this record-setter is tops in the ACC. He’s currently the league’s most accomplished back, and has topped the 100-yard mark 21 times.

EVEN A HATING HEART LIKES NOVELTY: NOTRE DAME AND POSSIBLE COMPETENCE (Every Day Should Be Saturday)
"We realize an entire generation of football fans have grown up to maturity (or at least as close as you'll ever get to maturity) without Notre Dame being "good." They have seen spikes, sure. Tyrone Willingham, a degenerative nerve disease and coach, took Notre Dame to ten wins in 2002. Charlie Weis, who later went on to work as offensive coordinator for an obscure team in Central America, led the Irish to a 10-2 record in 2006. That season ended with an exhibition against Louisiana State in the Sugar Bowl. Remember the time Charlie Weis tried to out-Les Miles Les Miles? Oh, Charlie. You couldn't have known the power of the Cult of Les, but did you have to make a mockery of his rites, his traditions? His fakes on special teams?"

Filed this under I thought UCF Week was last week ... "UCF, which cracked the Top 25 last season for the first time in school history, brings back much of its offense this fall, including a trio of accomplished tailbacks (Latavius Murray, Brynn Harvey and Ronnie Weaver) and a veteran offensive line. The defense must replace several key players, including two-time Conference USA Defensive Player of the Year Bruce Miller, but O'Leary is confident heading into 2011. "We have a lot of pieces in place to be a very good football team," he said."
