Boston College Daily Links: Football Spring Primer

Spring Practice Primer: Boston College (
Can Spaziani get back on track? Boston College may not leap off the page as an ACC power house to many, but until 2011 the Eagles had shown a constancy that that only a few of their fellow league members have displayed. The Eagles went to 12 straight bowl games from 1999-2010 before going 4-8 and missing the postseason. In recent years, bowl trips have helped cool "Frank Spaziani hot seat" talk, but now he needs results.

Kevin Hayes embracing larger role with Boston College (Hockey's Future)
We lost a lot of guys from last year, so I don't know if people thought that we would be able to win it again. This one was great, but winning the Beanpot is always great. I think this one was special because we have all these determined guys in our locker room that are a very close-knit group. And we just played for each other.

Patrick Wey learns to take adversity in stride (Hockey's Future)
My (offensive) game was definitely there in juniors because I had such an offensive role. But being here at Boston College, I just accept whatever role the coaches want me to play in. If they're giving me opportunities to play on the power play, I just try and step out there to get some goals. But it's not something that I've forgotten about. I still work on my shot too. But my offensive side is definitely something that I want to improve on, since I only have one point this year. But if the (offensive) opportunities present themselves, then I try and take advantage of them. But I'm definitely defense-first.
