Herzlich said being a starting linebacker in the NFL is a dream 25 years in the making
5. Boston College: If senior quarterback Chase Rettig can make in impact in the Eagles' new offense -- Ryan Day is Rettig's fifth offensive coordinator in 3.5 years -- like he did in 2012, Boston College should be able to reverse the program's five-year slide in the win column.
Is this the most optimistic BC preview in the media thus far?
What are the benefits? Money. And potentially lots of it.
Boston College asserted itself as one of the top ACC teams in the Atlantic Division after joining the conference in 2005. The Eagles won the division in both 2007 and 2008 yet the struggles in recent years have become paramount.
3. John Gaudreau, LW: The Flames know they won't have Gaudreau when they hit the ice at training camp; he's committed to a third season at Boston College, where he was a Hobey Baker Award finalist last season. Don't be surprised, though, if the Flames try to talk him into signing after BC’s season is over. Gaudreau's size (5-6, 141 pounds) is a concern, but there's no questioning his skill.
Listen, Canada, how many times do we have to tell you you can't have Gaudreau until 2015?
Enjoy your Friday, BC fans.
