Boston College Daily Links: CBS Sports Football Preview

Hope springs eternal. Sam Sharpe-US PRESSWIRE

Spring practice starts on August 6. Get pumped.

Boston College: Countdown to kickoff (CBSSports.com)
Who will run the ball? The Eagles will be the underdog in most conference games, which means they'll need to try to shorten the game and keep it out of the hands of the other team. And as the northernmost ACC school, weather will be more of an issue in Boston College as the season goes on. "It's important for Boston College to run the football," Spaziani said.

Speaking of filling in for All-Americans, Boston College linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis has a tall order replacing Luke Kuechly as the Eagles' leading tackler. Pierre-Louis finished 2011 with 74 tackles (second on the team behind Kuechly) despite missing three games due to injury. He has started every game he has played, and arguably could have been overshadowed by Kuechly's dominance in year's past. 2012 will be his chance to emerge from that shadow and become a household name in the ACC.

Camp notes: Kuechly earns respect (Panthers.com)
"He kind of stays in his lane because he's a rookie, but we've opened the door and said, 'Hey, you're one of us,'" Beason said. "We don't treat him like a rookie, and we don't expect him to play like a rookie, either."

"I don’t do what-ifs," Herzlich said Sunday morning. "There’s too many instances in my life where I could go back and say ‘what if, what if’ — what if I didn’t get sick, what if I didn’t get hurt. That’s not how you move forward, so I don’t do that at all."

LaPointe is Gaining the Most Playing in Sanford (BCEagles.com)
LaPointe is coming off a huge weekend, going 3-for-5 with five runs, two home runs, including a grand slam, two sacrifice flies and eight RBIs in two games. We caught up with him to see what he is working on in the off season and how he is spending his summer.

BC's McNelis: Harder to Walk in the Coach's Shoes (Lacrosse Magazine)
With the end of July comes the close of another summer club lacrosse season. This summer was my first time coaching a club team, and I really enjoyed it. I knew leading a group of 20 rising high school freshmen was not going to be easy, but I was up for the challenge.
