"I went up there for their Junior Day," he said. "Coaches Addazio and Day had been talking to me a lot, so I had a good feeling an offer would be coming.

I felt I could trust them, that they were always being truthful with me."

Checking in with BC WR Alex Amidon (ESPN ACC Blog)
Boston College receiver Alex Amidon was a bright spot in an otherwise dismal season for the Eagles last year. This fall, he is hoping to be part of a turnaround under first-year coach Steve Addazio and offensive coordinator Ryan Day. Last year, Amidon’s 1,210 yards receiving ranked second in the ACC, behind Clemson’s DeAndre Hopkins. Amidon and Hopkins led all ACC receivers in 2012 with six 100-yard reception games each. I caught up with Amidon recently to get his take on the new offense and staff changes.

Boston College prides itself on being "Men and Women for others" and damn it if they didn't do everyone proud. Senior (and insufferable Bills fan and Buffalo Rumblings reader) Alexander Hoffarth and hundreds of other members of the Boston College community spent all day and night caring for lost runners in St. Ignatius Church. "BC EMS and BC Dining Services did incredible work, and I saw countless examples of BC students stopping by and offering to buy food for the runners and volunteers, or just comfort them," He said. "It was absolutely incredible."
