Game 1 Preview: Miami Hurricanes @ Boston College Eagles (The 7th Floor)
Have to be honest here, it was kind of hard finding a clip of any significance in Boston College's football history. You'd think they have at least one memorable play we'd all remember, right? Something we could all look back on a couple dozen times a season, gratuitously? Anyways, if anyone knows of any, let me know. For now, all I could scrounge up is the Tom Coughlin led 1993 upset at Notre Dame, ruining their perfect season, which was also the last time the Domers were ranked #1.

"It’s that level I always dreamed of reaching, through high school, and obviously a scholarship never came in high school," said Davenport. "I knew I could do it, so that’s why I wanted to come to Boston College, to prove that I was worthy of a scholarship and be a scholarship player. To get to that next level, the honor of it, it means a lot to me. It’s definitely something I’ve always dreamed of doing. It’s been a big-time goal of mine for a while, and it’s definitely nice to achieve."

"I can’t wait to get back,’’ he said. "That’s all I think about, when I’ll be able to get out of my cast and get back healthy, strengthen my leg back up, and just get back on the field and have fun playing football.’’

"I was just kind of a man on a mission in this camp, the ‘mike’ position was open and I was going to do everything it took to get that spot," said Clancy. "I knew if I could just perform at the top of my game I’d be the guy."
ACC predictions: Week 1 (ESPN ACC Blog)
Miami 17, Boston College 14: The Eagles will give it everything they’ve got in a hard-fought game, but they’ll come up short late in the fourth quarter. Miami’s speed will be too much for a defense that will sorely miss tackling machine Luke Kuechly.

Clifford’s Take: Day Four In Spain (Heights Sports Blog)
My action shots of the team with the buildings in the background were absolutely flawless; using the black and white effects like the instruments in my orchestra. The amount of gems that can be found in Jordan’s camera right now is overwhelming – I even received the praise of Lonnie and John Cain Carney about how my photos of the team were so electrifying. I am going to continue taking photos while demanding that I get paid by the hour. Ryan seems to be upset with my sudden breakout of photographing potential, as he was the only one unimpressed by my work.
Anderson's Spain Blog: Day 5 (BCEagles.com)
The game was a very interesting one to say the least. We played a top division team here and they showed why those guys get paid so well. They were crisp on offense and defense. At one point, we cut the lead down to four points, but that's as close as we got. They ended up winning by 27 points, but it was a great learning experience for us.
