Happy Time: Chamberlain, Longwood and Cotton Bowl

Brian's happy that despite being another blowout at least West Virginia's rout of Oklahoma last night was not predictable so we go to Happy Time!

Happy Birthday Frank Chamberlin (January 2). Frank played 5 seasons in the NFL as LB - 3 seasons with the Tennessee Titans, 1 with the Bengals and 1 with the Texans, before being cut from the Houston roster in 2005. Frank was the only returning LB starter for TOB's 1999 football squad, and was the star of a 24-23 win against Syracuse his senior year.

Happy Trails Longwood University Lancers. The Lancers were dispatched by Tyrese Rice and the Eagles last night, in a warm up game for this Saturday's huge out of conference game vs. Kansas.

Happy Anniversary to BC's and Doug Flutie's Cotton Bowl victory. On January 1, 1985, the Heisman Trophy winner completed 13 of 37 for 180 yards in a 45-28 victory over the Houston Cougars. Boston College would go on to finish #4 AP / #5 UPI in the polls. The 1984 #4 ranking in the Associated Press poll is still the highest the Eagles have ever landed in a year-ending poll.
