Boston College Daily Links: Luke Kuechly NFL Draft Prospects


Kuechly Collects Performer of the Week Honors From Conference, National Outlets (
Boston College junior Luke Kuechly, who recorded a game-high 18 tackles in the team's 14-10 win over NC State on Saturday, Nov. 12, has earned both Atlantic Coast Conference Linebacker of the Week recognition as well as Lott IMPACT Player of the Week honors, according to announcements by each organization on Monday.

Keeping up with Kuechly (ESPN Notre Dame Football Blog)
The 6-foot-3, 237-pound junior linebacker from Cincinnati is currently No. 11 in Todd McShay's 2012 rankings of draft-eligible players. He is No. 12 on Mel Kiper's Big Board. But if and when he does move on to the NFL, he will leave behind a college legacy that will not easily be re-written.

Luke Kuechly just did a live shot with NBC about the Notre Dame game. He's a media hit; always polite and respectful.

ACC power rankings: Week 12 (ESPN ACC Blog)
11. Boston College (3-7, 2-5 ACC; LW: No. 11) – The Eagles haven’t quit, and Saturday’s win over NC State said a lot about the character and leadership on the team. BC has now won two of its last three games, but faces a tough road trip to rival Notre Dame on Saturday.

10. Boston College (3-7, 2-5). Kudos to Frank Spaziani and to his team for not losing their fight. An upset of N.C. State gives them two wins in their last three games and some much-needed momentum for next season.

NC State Wrap-up (Saturdays on Shea)
The coaching staff just tries to outlast our opponents or the clock instead of trying to win.  This has been their strategy for the last three years, but this year it has caught up to them.  Winning this game was merely the gilded exterior of the same old BC performance.  Negative two yards is the real story.

Which Division is the best: ACC Atlantic or Coastal? (From The Rumble Seat)
We've played 16 inter-division conference games in 2011 and the record is currently 8-8 for both divisions. A tie. There are two regular season match ups left along with the December 3rd ACC Championship Game. As a discussion point and means for passing time in mid-November, who do you think is the better division since 2005?

BC three-pointer: Young Eagles have promise (The BC Blog)
“I think we knew, well, at least I figured, coming into this game that the first couple of minutes were probably going to be real ugly,” said returning guard John Cahill, a first-year grad student in his second year with the program. “You’ve got a lot of young guys, really excited to come out here for the first time in front of all their peers, fans and all that. I think once we got though that four minutes, they kind of realized that all right, we can do this. We’re ready to go now. Get the jitters out. I think we did a good job calming down.

"I was pretty excited before the game; a little nervous," Heckmann said. "I just had to go out there and see how it feels, see how you can manage it. It was fun to be out there with the crowd and the band. It was a really nice feeling."

Patrick Heckmann’s heroics help Eagles edge UNH (
With 11 newcomers and nine freshmen, nothing is going to come easy for Boston College this season. That was evident last night, as New Hampshire gave BC everything it could handle. The Eagles don’t have a go-to guy returning, so they had to find one on the fly. Last night, it was freshman Patrick Heckmann, who scored 19 points to lead the Eagles to a 67-64 win at Conte Forum.

Two years ago Saint Louis was one of the Atlantic-10's elite after winning 23 games and going 11-6 in conference play. After stumbling through the 2010-11 season, the SLUnatics should have plenty to cheer about in 2012 as the Billikens look primed for another run at the top of the A-10 as head coach Rick Majerus enters his fifth year with the program.
