Listen to Steve Addazio for 30 seconds and you're sold... on his desire to rekindle the the fire on The Heights that produced NFL-caliber linemen year after year and the occasional superstar in Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan and Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly.
This is another one of those "rah rah, new energy" articles that, as I mentioned the other day, simply never get old after four years in the doldrums.

Thanks for the chuckle, Sahir. Best wishes to you, especially if any future success annoys BU fans.
If you have a hankering to watch some BC soccer, field hockey, or volleyball, you're in luck. Counting ESPN3 as "televised" is pretty weak, though. The women's soccer team faces Pitt on September 12 at 7 PM on ESPN3; their games at Clemson on 9/15, NC State on 9/29, and FSU on 10/3 will also air on the Tres.
The Field Hockey team airs on ESPN3 on October 19 against UNC. The men's soccer team faces Clemson on October 25 on a game that will air on actual TV via RSN, presumably on NESN in New England. Finally, the Holy War in Short Shorts takes place on November 29 when BC volleyball faces Notre Dame on ESPN3.
