A number of teams are trying to figure out where Boston College’s Reggie Jackson could go in the first round, but the consensus is that he is a lock for No. 31 Miami with a multiyear guaranteed deal. Jackson hasn’t done anything since the end of the season, bypassing the draft process without working out or conducting any interviews. His camp said he has jumper’s knee and didn’t have surgery.
2011 NBA Draft Rumors Featuring Klay Thompson, Reggie Jackson And Courtney Lee (Ridiculous Upside)
I've been told by Jackson's camp that he did actually have surgery, but the real juicy part of that paragraph is that the Heat have already given him a multi-year guarantee if he falls to them. For some reason, I think the Boston Celtics might snatch him up before he falls to the second round.

Sports Illustrated's Sam Amick has RJ going to the Celtics. "Apparently the Celtics aren't concerned about Jackson's minor knee surgery in mid-May, as a source insists he won't get past Boston.

Nets Draft Names Down To Four: Jackson, Harper, Smith, Goudelock? (NetsDaily)
Everybody has names, but no one has the name, the player at the top of the Nets list. A lot of pundits, beat reporters and draftniks think it's Justin Harper or Nolan Smith. Chad Ford hasn't relented (through three mock drafts) in his belief that it's Reggie Jackson of Boston College. And there's always someone no one's thought of.

Hockey Schedule, Realignment, Demon Dogs (mgoblog)
"The schedule is out, and the nonconference is meh: one-offs against Niagara, St. Lawrence, Northeastern, and Union and a home series against Bentley. The only marquee nonconference foe is Boston College in the opening round of the GLI."
No. 69: Maryland (Pre-Snap Read)
Agree 100%. "I don’t think Edsall is going to experience immediate success with the Terrapins: this team won’t near last season’s win total, in my mind, in part thanks to the changes that occur with any coaching change. The list of recent first-year A.C.C. coaches – not counting former coach-in-waiting Jimbo Fisher – who have taken over a bowl team and made a substantial improvement from the start is a short one."
Why We're Optimistic About the Future of Big East Football (Big East Coast Bias)
In which Big East bloggers rationalize better days to come. "The 2010 season did little to quell the criticism that the Big East is, after all, not worthy of its BCS automatic qualifying status and, judging by 2010 alone that would seem to be the case.
