Rettig Shines in Scrimmage (Eagle Action)
Mike Marscovetra got the first shot at running the 2nd team offense, and finished 6-for-9 for 30 yards with a touchdown and an interception. Marscovetra got into trouble early in the scrimmage when he was rushed by Mehdi Abdesmad and forced to hurry a pass. Marscovetra unwisely threw the ball into a crowd and it was picked off by Jake Sinkovec. Marscovetra got revenge later in the scrimmage when he connected with Hampton Hughes from 5 yards out. 

BC’s offense shows spark (
No one was expecting midseason sharpness after only five days of practice and only two full days in pads, but the Eagles showed some flashes on offense with Rettig, now the established starter as a sophomore, leading the way on a deeper and more experienced unit.

Offensive shines in BC's first scrimmage (The Boston Globe College Sports Blog)
After two years of almost no offensive production in its first scrimmage--which was a portent of the future in some instances-- Boston College quarterback Chase Rettig led an offense which showed some flash this evening. Rettig, clearly the QB in charge, was very much that at times tonight, completing 12 of 19 passes for 124 yards and two TDs. Back up QBs Mike Marscovetra and Dave Shinskie also threw TD passes.

BC’s green legs & Sam (
"My junior year (in high school) I played defensive end and my senior year they moved me out to a strong safety/outside linebacker position, so there was a lot of coverage work, which was nice because I had never played inside until last year when I played at (weakside linebacker)," said Divitto. "That was great for me because I was able to learn the whole defense inside and out. But I feel like Sam is probably a little more comfortable for me."

Boston College Eagles may be grounded in 2011: A fan's view (
BC has had a long run of consistent success in its football program. Though they have not been able to break into the top-tier bowl games, for a little-considered program in the Northeast, the Eagles have had a remarkable amount of success in recent years. But in 2011—with an uncertain QB, a tougher schedule and an incompetent coach—the Eagles may see their run of bowl games come to an abrupt and disappointing end.

Isaacs talks about BC visit (Scarlet Nation)
"The way they run their stuff it looked very similar to the way we do it and no offense to any of the tight ends there but I can definitely see myself going there and making an impact," Isaacs said. "I like how they run their stuff over there."

Football Season Preview: Part II (Around The Res)

Position of power in the ACC (ESPN ACC Blog)
North Carolina also has Donte Paige-Moss at the other end position, another player who has already caught the attention of NFL scouts. Adewale Ojomo and Olivier Vernon at Miami are two veteran standouts, and NC State’s Jeff Rieskamp and Virginia’s Cam Johnson are also among the best in the league. Andre Branch at Clemson should get more recognition this fall, especially with the early departure of Da’Quan Bowers, and Max Holloway at Boston College hasn’t reached his potential yet but began to make a name for himself last season.
