New, comment
Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

Since Jan. 11, the Boston College Eagles have been on a ten game schnide. The Eagles look to fix that against Florida State.

Things To Look Out For With Florida State

This is usually where I write some stuff about the Eagles' upcoming opponent, usually with some important stats or something, but today I'm not going to do that, because I think at some point the same things keep popping up. BC has trouble finishing games, BC doesn't do well against teams that defend the three well (FSU doesn't necessarily do so, at least comparatively amongst ACC teams). I would also make a comment about Dwayne Bacon being a player to look for (and possibly make a dumb joke about how BC needs to steal FSU's bacon by limiting his offensive production,) or make a point about how Florida State is the worst free throw shooting team in the league, and a little bit of defensive contact won't be the worst thing in the world. But I'm not going to do so. Because in the end, BC just keeps showing the only thing to pay attention to is that BC is not the better team at any point in this stretch of the season.

Great BC Women’s Athletics Accomplishment We Didn’t Report On

The BC women’s tennis team swept the singles portion of their meet with UMass, powering the team to a 6-1 defeat of the Minutewomen.

Predictions:

BC has had trouble closing out games, so even if it is competitive I just don't see the Eagles winning.

Arthur: 70-50 FSU

Laura: Sports make me sad idk you guys

Grant: Crab Legs

Brian: SVN wins
