After what seems like eight road games in a row, the Boston College Eagles finally return to Chestnut Hill this weekend to play the Maryland Terrapins. In what is expected to be a light crowd, AD Brad Bates will get to witness his first game as the AD on Saturday. BC is primed to score its first ACC win this year against the Terps, as Maryland is now on it's fourth string quarterback. But as we all know, with Frank Spaziani anything is possible.
Can the Eagles defend star wideout Stefon Diggs? Will Chase Rettig return to his early season glory, or will his struggles continue against a good Maryland defense? Are the Terps the real deal or are they just the product of an easy schedule? Will this be Frank Spaziani's last game at coach of the Boston College Eagles?
Under Armour uniforms hideous, patriotic or both? Will Alumni Stadium be half full? If BC struggles early will the crowd turn ugly? Will anyone be watching this game on ESPN3? What will Bates be thinking as he looks out over a half empty Alumni Stadium? Will Stub Hub be forced to use those extra BC tickets to wallpaper their offices?
What To Drink If Boston College Lays An Egg
Bud Light: This weekend highlight's our wounded veterans and some red white and blue jerseys for the Eagles, and what screams AMURICA more than Bud Light. As a beer snob, I haven't drank one of these in years, but I understand it's importance in AMURICANA. So it's cold, crack one, sing God Bless America, and talk about Gerald Ford's college football days at Michigan. But please do us all a favor, don't talk politics at a tailgate, no one cares what your political views are.

Gametime Song of the Week
REAL AMERICAN- HULK HOGAN
To continue our theme of patriotic awesomeness, I present you the second National Anthem, Hulk Hogan's theme song. Forget about the tape of him bagging Bubba the Love Sponge's wife, Hulk was the man when I was a kid. In terms of great moments in our National History the order goes
1. Win American Revolution
2. Walk on Moon
3. Hulk Hogan defeats Iron Sheik at Summerslam
(and if you never liked wrestling as a kid, I have nothing to say to you)
