Matchup of the Game

Taking Out The Four Headed Dragon

Florida State plays a four guard/one forward lineup. All four guards are offensive threats, meaning they can jump-start an offense ver easily. The top three scorers all play different roles (Xavier Rathan-Mayes the point, Malik Beasley a jump shooter, Dwayne Bacon plays solid inside). The key for the Eagles is to not let Bacon get inside and take their chances with Beasley mid-range.

Florida State charges $215.55 per credit hour.

A Good Alcoholic Accompaniment To Be Drunk In Moderation

(note: the final thoughts and predictions offer this alcoholic accompaniment in recognition of the author's post 21st birthday life. final thoughts and predictions supports responsible drinking. this is a drink to be enjoyed for people 21 years of age and older)

Yards Philly Pale Ale

Yards is not available in Massachusetts, though it is available at bars down in Washington, where the game will be played.

I had this drink yesterday with dinner at P.J. Whelihan's in Maple Shade, N.J. (who serve the greatest wings ever).

The taste is not overwhelming, and it goes down really smooth. Perfect as a standalone beer, though I can attest that it is solid as an accompaniment with wings and a game as well.

Final Thoughts And Predictions

I think BC has run out of juice.

70-55 Florida State

When I watched "The Four Fall of Buffalo," there was a segment where the Bills went into the locker room leading Dallas in their fourth Super Bowl appearance, but they were all hanging their head. The grind and run of it all finally took its toll, and they just simply wanted to play it all out. They were tired, beaten, and exhausted. That's what BC looked like against Clemson - a team ready for this all to finally be over and done with. Now imagine having to play a game beyond that.

New Guy gets the bonus point.

I'm too sad for the BC basketball players to make a prediction for this

76-56 FSU

You could see the last bit of air escape the lungs on Saturday during the Clemson game.  This group fought hard in almost every game this season, but it is time to say goodnight once and for all.  FSU's length and defensive presence shuts down an already struggling Eagle attack.
