2012 postseason top 25 players: No. 21 (ESPN ACC Blog)
The fact that Amidon averaged 100 yards per game when it was obvious he was the favorite target and BC couldn’t run the ball was impressive. He was a first-team all-ACC selection by the media, and a second-team all-ACC player in the coaches’ team. He had a breakout season in 2012, and was easily the most reliable player on the roster.

The Eagles will make the NCAA Tournament again someday, but if they can’t get back on track towards it next year, then why did we all suffer the last few seasons? What was the point? What improvement did we truly make?

Carpenter Earns Co-Player of the Week Honors (
