Boston College has little time to celebrate Maryland win (The Boston Globe)
"We’ve got to do a better job on defense,’’ said middle linebacker Luke Kuechly, who again led the way with 12 tackles, an interception, and a pass breakup, but had help in several areas. "With six minutes [to go] in the game, we kind of took off. Next week, we have to play every play.’’

"To get that first goal was a great feeling," Gaudreau said. "Getting one this weekend was great, too. I’ve just got to keep it up."

ACC Legend: Stephen Boyd of Boston College (
The moment is Boyd's contribution to ACC history. And while it seems somewhat vicarious, it hinted at the attributes that would make BC a member of the league a dozen years later. It also helps explain why ACC Legends come from all current institutions.

"I always noted that BC had small guys,’’ said Gaudreau, a native of Carneys Point, N.J. "Me and my brother, we’re both 5-8 and we felt it would be good to come to BC because coach [Jerry] York likes small players. When we came to campus, we loved it from the second we got on campus, so it was kind of a good fit.’’

"Every year I've always come into spring training knowing I have to have a good year," said Doyle, who has a 2.94 ERA in 75 minor league games. "When I was told I was coming (to the AFL), it was kind of a relief because it meant I was getting noticed. And now coming here I knew I had to put up good numbers, and luckily I've been able to do it."

"We knew this was going to happen, so we built it into our plan last week and accelerated ourselves. There is obviously some carryover from what we might have practiced that we can and can’t use."

"We've been practicing the same guys (on the offensive line) and they're inching forward," Spaziani said yesterday during his weekly conference call, referencing a lack of continuity early in the season due to injury. "Believe me, inching. They did do some nice things. They made improvements, and on face value they blocked who they had to block. We had less breakdowns, only one penalty for the second week in a row. We were able to be successful on the ground. It's encouraging, but it's a new challenge coming up."

Getting to know FSU’s Week 10 foe - Boston College (Chopping Block)
After completely dismantling N.C. State, the Seminoles have already begun turning their attention to Boston College for a Thursday night game on the road in Chestnut Hill, Mass.

Second Thoughts On The ACC Weekend, Oct. 31 (ACC Sports Journal)
Rolandan Finch anyone? I’d been impressed by the BC sophomore running back in his two previous starts, but 39 carries for 243 yards and two touchdowns? Wow. Finch is listed at 5-10, 209 pounds, but he seems shorter and heavier, built like a bowling ball. He showed a really nice blend of shiftiness and power against Maryland. So why wasn’t he getting more run earlier in the season? He did have two fumbles against the Terps. It didn’t hurt BC in this game, but Frank Spaziani seemed to hint afterward that maybe ball security problems were the reason why Finch hadn’t seen more playing time. By now though, you have to figure Finch’s pluses far outweigh any potential minuses.

Tiffany Ruffin Gives The Inside Scoop About the Team (
Defense is going to determine a lot for us this season. We are learning to take more pride in what we can do on the defensive side of the ball, while letting our offense come to us naturally. All of the hard work is finally paying off. We caused 21 turnovers and have started to see the outcome of Coach (Tim) Eatman's defensive schemes.

Happy Halloween in the ACC (ESPN ACC Blog)
Boo (boo): The biggest loss because of injury had to be BC leading rusher Montel Harris. He was the school’s all-time leading rusher and the ACC’s active leader in rushing yards and carries. He entered the season chasing a 33-year-old league record, but repeated problems with his knee sidelined him for the majority of the season.
