2011 Position Previews: Offensive Line (Eagle in Atlanta)
Despite my growing cynicism surrounding Spaz, I actually believe the offensive line will play better this year. Rogers' Olines at Syracuse and Notre Dame were always decent.

2011 Boston College Preview (Scout.com)
Boston College should get off to a fast start, with a slate that includes four manageable home games in the first five weeks. It's in October that the waters begin to get a rough.

The Eagles should be better in 2011 and they better be because Spaziani’s job depends on it. There’s no question the weak link last season was the offense, which finished 109th in scoring.

The 12-Pack Welcomes Virginia in the SBN Conference Re-Draft (Bruins Nation)
As we wrote yesterday, the addition of UVa not only gives the conference a foothold in Washington DC and the greater Mid-Atlantic region, but fits in great with the main priorities of the conference - including the aforementioned media markets, academics (US News's #25 undergrad, plus top-10 business and law schools), facilities and revenue-generation and being yet another prime road tripping destination.
