Boston College Daily Links: Orlando Sentinel Has BC Football at #84

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Daily Links for Tuesday, June 3, 2014

It's just about that time of year where everyone starts chiming in with their college football rankings, filled with cliches, poorly researched information, and text probably copy-pasted from their preview the year before. The worst offender for this sort of thing is usually Athlon Sports, who, as you may recall, showed BC a little more love than usual, ranking them #64.

Yesterday, the Orlando Sentinel college football blog continued their countdown and got to BC at #84:

Boston College ranked No. 84, Eagles are counting on UF transfer Tyler Murphy to lead offense (Orlando Sentinel)

Boston College's success will largely hinge on Murphy. The senior started six games for the Gators last year after Jeff Driskel went down with an injury. He had 1,216 passing yards and six touchdowns last season, but he worked with an offense that lacked talented skill-position players. Boston College has a chance of becoming bowl eligible if Murphy steps up as the focal point of the offense.

ACC recruiting well in Tampa area (ESPN ACC Blog)

Clemson is up to No. 4 in the latest ESPN Recruiting Nation class rankings, and a big reason why is the way the Tigers have emphasized getting athletes out of Tampa and the entire West Coast of Florida.

Nice story about Brian Billet, written by a familiar face in the BC blogosphere:

Billet's Cause to Run (College Hockey News)

For Billett, this cause is very personal. His older brother, Christopher, developed a form of epilepsy during his freshman year of college at the Maine Maritime Academy. Chris, who had dreamed of being an officer in the Navy, ultimately had to transfer to the University of Southern Maine, his military career done before it even started.

Sailing Placed Fourth At The APS National Team Race Championship (BCEagles.com)

The Boston College sailing team placed fourth overall at the APS National Championship Team Race and the Walter C. Wood Trophy today in Maryland hosted by St. Mary's. Yale went 22-3 in the competition to win the event, while St. Mary's went 18-7 for second place and Stanford was third at 17-8. BC was 15-10 in the competition.

That doesn't seem up to our usual standard. FIRE BATES!!!!
