Boston College Daily Links: Is Time Running Out?

Is time running out for Spaziani at BC? (National Football Post)
For BC, the team has been on the wrong side of the ledger too many times under Spaz. After an 8-5 mark in 2009, the team has gone 7-6 and 4-8 the last two seasons. And taking a glance at the 2012 Eagles schedule, other than a contest against Maine, there's not a lot of easy matchups for a squad trending in the wrong direction.

BG’s Spinney signs with Redskins (
Former Bishop Guertin and Boston College offensive lineman Mark Spinney has his foot in the National Football League door. He confirmed on Tuesday night that he has indeed agreed to a rookie free agent contract with the Washington Redskins and is flying out Thursday to attend the ’Skins mini camp.

Reaction to Montel Harris Dismissal Continues to Mount (Soaring To Glory)
What we do not have to speculate about is that the Eagles no longer have Montel Harris, and despite the fact that he probably wasn’t going to be a major contributor in 2012, the perception is that this is a symbolic blow to an already sinking ship. Sometimes, perception merely resembles reality, but in this case, it’s spot on.

ACC’s 2012 football favorites look familiar (
The Eagles have to replace all-everything linebacker Luke Kuechly (the Panthers’ first-round pick) and likely won’t have All-ACC running back Montel Harris, again, to pick up the pieces on offense. Still, after three of BC’s four wins on the season came in the final five weeks, the Eagles feel good about the 2012 season. Any substantial improvement will have to come on offense, where they ranked 112th out of 120 FBS teams, in scoring and total yards. Prediction: 4-8, 2-6.

Sailing Wins Team Race Conference Championship (
For the second time this spring, the Boston College Sailing Team has won a Conference Championship. The Eagles, coming off the Women's Conference Championship last weekend, were not the favorites going into this weekend's Team Race Conference Championship.

2012 Opponents

College Football Countdown: No. 103 Army (Orlando Sentinel)
There’s plenty of interpretation following last season’s disappointing 3-9 season. With 17 returning starters, Army appears poised to get back to a postseason bowl game however a lot will depend on the success of the defense. The schedule features several key road games including the season opener in San Diego. With seven games against teams that were bowl eligible last season, the Black Knights need to open strong and capture winnable games when they can.

College football countdown: No. 104 Maryland (Orlando Sentinel)
The 2012 season doesn’t appear as if it should be as bad as the last one was. While it’s certainly possible, there are reasons for the Terrapins to be encouraged. In addition to the returnees on defense, the offense will have another year under Brown at quarterback. Dorsey and Furstenburg provide quite the explosive tandem for him to throw to. Six or seven wins and a bowl berth are a possibility, but Maryland will have quite the challenge in front of it in order to make that happen.

Finally, does US Senator and BC alum Scott Brown have any eligibility remaining?
