Daily links for Tuesday, February 26, including reactions from around the ACC on the 2013 football schedule release.
What Was The ACC Thinking? (Gobbler Country)
Or overreactions. "Let me start off by saying that, as a fan, I am fed up with how the ACC constantly appears to sabotage Virginia Tech. When Virginia Tech was admitted into the ACC, nobody thought they would be dominating the league in football, claiming four titles when the expectations were for FSU and Miami to be annually battling in for ACC supremacy."
Florida State 2013 football schedule (Tomahawk Nation)
FSU's scouting report on BC. "With a new coaching staff wanting to emphasize a smash mouth running game, one has to wonder just how well it will work. BC's personnel is a better fit for spreading things out and throwing the football. On defense, BC returns 9 of 11 starters and 19 of 22 defensive contributors. BC was very bad last year, and should improve, but the Eagles could improve significantly and still not be considered a good team."
2013 Clemson Football Schedule (Shakin The Southland)
The ACC finally released the conference schedule this afternoon, only 15 years after every other conference had already announced theirs, allowing the football fans of each conference to have their Fall Saturdays planned out. It is shit overall and shows the conference has little intelligence, but I'm pretty pleased with how it sets up for Clemson.
Maryland's last ACC football schedule finalized (Testudo Times)
Boston College 20, Maryland 17 tho. "The back end doesn't have the same high-end opposition, and in fact includes the easiest game on the conference schedule: BC at home. Syracuse at home, too, could prove to be very winnable. The road games aren't easy and, at least looking at it right now, Maryland would probably be expected to drop both. But so long as things are taken care of in the earlier two "seasons", 2-2 down the back stretch should be enough to get Maryland into the postseason and is certainly viable."
12 years later, BC Lacrosse cherishes hero’s legacy (The Gavel)
On Monday night, the BC men’s lacrosse team convened at Roggie’s Bar and Grille to honor a member of the team that personified Crowther: he was a man with grace and compassion that, in an act of sheer courage, shed his duties as a Sandler O’Neill equities trader and assumed the role of New York City firefighter.
Women's Basketball Falls To Clemson, 64-61 (BCEagles.com)
Despite 14 points and six rebounds from senior Kerri Shields, Boston College lost to Clemson, 64-61, in front of 1045 fans at Conte Forum. BC is now 10-17 and 4-12 in the ACC, while Clemson is now 9-18 and 5-11 in the conference.
McKenzie Meehan Named to US Under-20 National Team Roster (BCEagles.com)
Boston College women's soccer has a lot to celebrate as of late. Not only is Kristie Mewis with the full US Women's National team next month, but freshman McKenzie Meehan has just been named to the roster for the US Women's Under-20 National team for the 12 Nation Tournament in La Manga, Spain. Meehan and the team will compete in the tournament from March 1-12.
