Boston College in haiku:

Not a real book, but could be 
Eagles textbook case

Perfect.

Facts about the Opposition: Boston College - Cardiac Hill

Boston College must begin life without Andre Williams. The BC back had a banner season last year that saw him finish fourth in the Heisman voting and taken in the fourth round by the New York Giants in the NFL Draft. Williams rushed for 2,100 yards and 18 scores and was more than just the focal point of the offense, he was the offense. Beyond Williams, the Eagles lose their starting quarterback, Chase Retting as well. Tyler Murphy looks like he will be the next guy up to play QB for Boston College. Murphy is a senior and a transfer from Florida. BC Interruption seemed to be impressed with his running ability in the Spring game, and there is optimism around Murphy.

The Top 75 Worst Losses in Notre Dame Football History: #5-1 - One Foot Down

#4 - Boston College - The highest rated modern loss and the one likely at the top for a lot of readers comes in at No. 4 on this list. Many didn't think the Irish had legit National Title hopes in 1993 after losing four 1st round draft picks and 6 overall picks in the top two rounds of the NFL Draft. That reality seemed likely after Notre Dame scraped by a very poor Northwestern team to start the season. Despite the win, the Irish fell to No. 11 in the polls...but they were just embarking on a long road to a near miracle season.

Former Blackhawks top pick Kevin Hayes could be free agent soon - CBSSports.com

The Calgary Flames also have been a popular speculative destination since they drafted and signed Hayes' good friends and former BC linemates Bill Arnold and Gaudreau. There's a really easy recruiting pitch in there as the trio was the most productive line in some years in college hockey. The Flames also have a weaker NHL roster down the wings, with not a lot in the pipeline either. That could be a match, but don't call it good just yet.
