But, admit it, playing Boston College is, well, about as exciting as getting a pair of brown socks from your uncle on Christmas morning. Wow, gee, thanks. I needed socks. How did you know? Nothing against Boston College, a proud football program with a fine tradition. Just not this year. Doug Flutie or Matt Ryan won't be at AT&T Park on Jan. 9. The Eagles won't be coached by Frank Leahy, Tom Coughlin or Jack Bicknell. Is getting to play a 7-5 team that finished fourth in the Atlantic Coast Conference really all the reward the Pack gets for going 12-1 and being ranked 13th in the nation?
