"I’m open to anybody right now. Knowing there is going to be a new coach I don’t want to stop my recruiting and then be stuck with nobody. But I’m not really worried. I’m more excited right now to see who the new coach is going to be and then we’ll go from there."

"Yep, I’m still solid," Kavalec said Monday evening. "I would like to see who the new coach is going to be, but I’m still a solid commit. I’m hoping some of the assistant coaches are still around. I never got a chance to know Coach Spaziani all that well."

Three-star running back LeShun Daniels (Warren, Ohio/Warren G. Harding) knew there was a possibility Boston College coach Frank Spaziani would be fired at the end of the season, so he has been bracing himself. The news came down Sunday as Boston College fired Spaziani. Daniels is committed to the Eagles.

4. Notre Dame defensive coordinator Bob Diaco: If Yow doesn’t scoop him up, somebody else likely will. In his third season as the coordinator for the Irish, Diaco has been the leader behind the nation’s No. 2 scoring defense. The Irish are No. 6 in the country in scoring defense, and Diaco is a big reason Notre Dame should be playing for the national title this year.

12. Boston College (2-10, 1-7; LW: No. 12) – The program hit rock bottom this weekend, as coach Frank Spaziani was fired Sunday after a miserable 2-10 finish that included only one win against an FBS team -- Maryland. Head-to-head results are a bit deceiving here, as even though Maryland lost to the Eagles, they were overall the better team this year -- even with a fifth-string quarterback.
Predicting all 12 games in this week’s ACC-Big Ten Challenge slate (The Dagger)
Here's the most damning indictment of the worst game on the Big Ten-ACC slate: It's less watchable than Nebraska-Wake Forest. Penn State already wasn't going to be good before losing leading scorer Tim Frazier to a season-ending injury. Boston College has lost four of five including a humiliating 56-54 setback against Bryant University on Sunday. Since the Nittany Lions are at home and they showed some life with a decent win over Bucknell last week, they're the pick. Predicted winner: Penn State
Coach Tim O’Shea Leads Bryant Past Boston College (NYTimes.com)
This season is O’Shea’s fifth at Bryant. The first four seasons, during which Bryant competed in the Northeast Conference but not in postseason play, were rough as the team went a combined a 20-99, including a one-win season. But on Sunday, the Bulldogs, in their first season as a full-time member of Division I, brought some validation to the program’s long road, as well as O’Shea’s journey.
