Boston College Daily Links: Luke Kuechly Superlative Tracker


ACC superlative tracker: Week 11 (ESPN ACC Blog)
Boston College linebacker Luke Kuechly: He ranks sixth on the NCAA’s FBS career list for tackles with 491. (The NCAA’s list only dates back to 2000.) Kuechly has an NCAA-leading streak of 31 straight games with 10 or more tackles. He also has 8.5 tackles for loss and two interceptions. He leads the nation with 150 tackles and 16.67 per game. 

It's mainstream media, too - not just a poll of BC bloggers. I think few people have been getting really engaged in the Heisman chase this year since it's basically Luck's to lose, but Kuechly would be a bigger upset than a low-win pitcher from a west coast team picking up the Cy Young.

"I went up to the game on Thursday and it was exciting," Hopkins said. "It was a good atmosphere. Just being on the sidelines before the game it was awesome. I got to meet the coaches and it was really nice. "I actually went to the camp in the summer in June. I really liked it up there. I didn't work with coach (Sean) Devine that much but it was good. He taught me a lot of good things and a lot of technique so I liked it."

Meet Your New Basketball Eagles: Salah Abdo (Soaring to Glory)
Here is another new face in Boston College basketball, but like Deirunas Visockas, it’s not a freshman. Salah Abdo (#0), a graduate student from Chelsea, may have Reggie Jackson’s old number, but probably won’t get that kind of playing time.

BC Basketball Preview Part III: Freshmen (Around The Res)
It will be very interesting to see which freshmen emerge as stars and which ones sink to the bottom of the depth chart. Obviously, it's too early to tell who will fall into each category, but I've attempted to sum up the conventional wisdom on each of the incoming freshmen as a starting point for where BC fans' expectations should be going into the season.
