Men's Soccer Shuts Out Rhode Island, 3-0 (BCEagles.com)
On the strength of goals by Zeiko Lewis and Derrick Boateng, as well as two assists by Diego Medina-Mendez, BC men's soccer picked up a 3-0 win on the road at Rhode Island on Tuesday night, improving their record to 3-2-2.
"I actually know those guys, I've actually spent a lot of time around them and they are really talented players," said Addazio. "In my early years at Florida they were really good on defense and I notice that is coming back again to where it is pretty dominant. "I've seen defenses like this when maybe the offense wasn't quite right. I think this is the most talented whole package I've seen."
As far as Addazio was concerned, the best way to neutralize the eighth-ranked Seminoles' offense was to keep it parked on the sidelines. "Obviously we're not looking to speed this game up,'' said the BC coach. Addazio. "We're looking to slow this game down.'' The Eagles hope to achieve that objective through a methodical, ball-controlled offense that will call upon its offensive linemen and featuring senior running back Andre Williams, BC's a bruising 6-foot, 227-pounder who is averaging a league-leading 118.7 yards per game, to set the tone against the Seminoles' defense, which ranks seventh in the nation.

Our friends at Tomahawk Nation link to video of this week's Jimbo Fisher TV Show. (Does Addazio have a radio show yet?)
Since Jeff Jackson arrived at Notre Dame ahead of the 2005-06 season, the Fighting Irish have become one of college hockey's most successful teams. Looking at television schedules and recruiting battles, it's clear Notre Dame has transformed into a truly elite program.
The 2013-14 season, however, presents an interesting challenge for Jackson and his program. A move to Hockey East means a new league to conquer and another hurdle for Notre Dame to surpass.
