Good morning! It's a great day to be an Eagle. To the links:

Vulgar Chants At Sporting Events Reflect Poorly On BC (The Heights)

While students can make an effort to hold their friends accountable for the language they use, the student body can't solve the problem alone. The athletics department can work towards preventing these explicit chants by embracing and encouraging the long-standing, popular chants and cheers that have cemented themselves within the student body.

I chalked up the "F Wisconsin" chant to dumb people at their first hockey game. Hearing that carry over to the NU game was troubling, although it should be said, the "F Northeastern" chant was short-lived and only came from one small section of the crowd. Still, unacceptable at BC. Clean it up, kids.

Reggie Jackson has a lot riding on his 6-foot-3, 200-pound shoulders this season. The Boston College alum needs to develop a consistent outside shot and become reliable on defense for the Oklahoma City Thunder to continue to rise in the Western Conference.

The Eagles swept Northeastern in a hard fought series. "I'll sleep well tonight," said Jerry York after Saturday's game. The Eagles continue to get production from their tremendous freshmen class, but Johnny Gaudreau had three more scores on the weekend. Chicago Blackhawks prospect Kevin Hayes was an absolute beast on the ice this weekend.

6. Boston College (4-4, 2-3; LW: No. 10) - The Eagles have been oh-so-close to a breakthrough win this fall, and they finally knocked the door down against Virginia Tech. BC has established its identity as a disciplined, power running team with a determined defense, and it's been a remarkable turnaround in the first season under coach Steve Addazio.

"Their defense had some really great schemes and we hadn't played against a 4-4 defense this year," said Williams. "The safety was always in the box and I think the type of game that we played (was) a physical run game. "As long as we stayed on the field and let the (Virginia Tech) defense feel the brunt of our attack by the third and fourth quarter, it gets easier. You can sense it coming out in the second half when you are getting more yards after contact with people bouncing off of you."
