Gene’s Eagle optimism (
"They’re not here every day," DeFilippo said. "They’re not here all the time. Spaz and I work 24/7 and they just have to trust us and understand that this program is headed in the right way. You have to remember when I got here in 1997, the football team had had three winning teams in 10 years. We’ve had 12 consecutive winning teams, 10 of those years we’ve won eight or more games, six of those 12 years we’ve won nine or more. Believe me, losing is totally unacceptable here and it will not happen again."

10. Boston College (4-8) – Overall, it was a disappointing season for the Eagles. However, the second half of the year provided some hope the program can bounce back into a bowl game next season. Boston College capped off its 2011 campaign with a surprising 24-17 victory over Miami on Friday afternoon. The win over the Hurricanes was the Eagles' second win in their last three games. The biggest question mark going into the offseason will be linebacker Luke Kuechly, who could enter the NFL Draft. Also, Boston College has to find some stability on offense in 2012, but could get a boost with the return of running back Montel Harris from a knee injury.

10. Boston College (4-8, 3-5 ACC; LW: No. 10) – It was an impressive effort in the win over Miami, and the Eagles deserve a lot of credit for winning three of their last five after starting the season 1-6.
