Injuries May Put Spring Game In Jeopardy

Quote in Boston Globe puts game in doubt

NCAA Football: Maine at Boston College Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

The Boston College Football spring game is scheduled for April 22nd, but according to a report by Julian Benbow in the Boston Globe, the game could be in jeopardy:

The Eagles still have four practices scheduled before their spring game, set for April 22. The question is whether they’ll make it to the spring game with enough bodies to play it.

“We’ll see,” Addazio said. “I’d say today, we probably still could but I don’t know what next week brings. The minute you drop below nine, 10 offensive linemen, it’s almost impossible. So if we were to take too many more issues there, that’d make it tough.”

Obviously the health of the team should come first, and if that means cancelling it, the Eagles should definitely do that. The health of the offensive line is going to be a key going into 2017, and there is no need to jeopardize that for a spring game. It’s not like there are thousands of fans clamoring to go to this event anyways.

This could be the 3rd spring game that has been cancelled during Steve Addazio’s tenure at the Heights. In 2013 the Boston Marathon bombing forced the cancellation of the spring game, and in 2015 a similar injury bug on the offensive line also forced the game to be cancelled.
