Boston College Daily Links: More On Xavier QB Tim Boyle

Xavier QB Boyle commits to Boston College: 'It's always been at the top of my list' (The Middletown Press)
"They throw 30 times a game, which suits me as a pocket passer," Boyle said. "I’ve talked with (offensive coordinator) Doug Martin and (starting junior quarterback) Chase Rettig, and I feel like I’ve already picked up some plays here and there. It’s a good environment."

Another Tampa prospect has BC offer (
Brown is a 5-foot-10, 162-pound corner with good athleticism and ball skills. While he doesn't have a huge build he plays bigger than he is. He's got offers from Rutgers and nearly a dozen other schools from the mid-major ranks. Boston College has evidently seen enough from him and likes what he could bring to the table.

Eagles tracking 2014 running back (
Boston College is one of the schools taking an early interest in Troy Robinson, a 5-foot-11, 200-pound running back from Washington (D.C.) St. John's. The Eagles haven't yet offered Robinson but he's claiming an offer from Syracuse, a school that will soon be joining Boston College in the ACC.

Former Brookline High star Nicholas Scott gets a football offer from Boston College (
“It’s gonna hurt our program to lose a player that is one of the best rising juniors in New England,” said Brookline High coach Kevin Mahoney. “Nick is a special athlete, but his character off the field and around the team is what makes losing him such a big loss. Our staff is extremely proud of the hard work that Nick has put in while at BHS and he would make an excellent addition at the Heights if he chooses to go there”.

2013 NFL Draft: Boston College Preview (CBSSports)
Only six collegiate programs have produced at least one first-round pick in four of the past five NFL Drafts: Alabama, Florida, LSU, Southern Cal, North Carolina ... and the sixth? Oklahoma? Ohio State? No, the answer is Boston College. Despite only eight Eagles being drafted over the past half decade, five have heard their name called in the first round (QB Matt Ryan, OT Gosder Cherilus, DT BJ Raji, OT Anthony Castonzo, LB Luke Kuechly).

Schedule analysis: Boston College (ESPN ACC Blog)
Oct. 6-Nov. 3 (at Army, at Florida State, at Georgia Tech, Maryland, at Wake Forest). You’ll notice that four of these five games are on the road, and three of them are against Atlantic Division opponents. If Boston College is going to return to the postseason in any form, it must find a way to beat Army, Maryland and Wake Forest. If the Eagles can surprise either FSU or Georgia Tech, they should be able to reach the six-win mark. Bowl eligibility appears to be a more realistic goal right now than winning the division title.

"I’ve always been one to never really do anything half speed, you know? If I’m going to train I want to train even more than I did last time. I don’t want to train less," said Florian. "When I wasn’t able to do that, I knew it was time to call it quits and let people know that I’m done."
