Boston College Daily Links: X-Factors In 2012

Boston College: X-factors for 2012 (
However, the Eagles have been a program built on physical play with a solid run game, and that is why running backs Rolandan Finch, Andre Williams, and Tahj Kimble are the X-factors in Chestnut Hill. Finch got the most work of the three last year and rushed for 705 yards. Williams rushed for 517 yards and Kimble had 156 yards. Quarterback Chase Rettig will need the running backs to produce to take some of the load off his shoulders.

Unable to practice, UM’s Henderson faces battle to start at right tackle (
Getting back on the field may not be so easy with Flowers in the way. Henderson, who has started 11 games in two seasons, indicated on Saturday that it might be another week or more before he is cleared to practice. That would give Flowers, 6-6 and 315 pounds, more time to lock down the starting job before the Hurricanes kick off the 2012 season on Sept. 1 against Boston College.
