Boston College Daily Links: Fifth Straight 'Pot

Daily links for Tuesday, February 11, 2014.


I don't get NESN so I wasn't able to watch the game last night. Can someone tell me what place Boston U. finished?


Patrick Brown Outshines Star Teammates As Boston College Wins Another Beanpot (
"He kept working and getting stronger," York said. "Most teams you see in the country, their very best player’s their captain. Historically that’s the way it is. Patrick has such leadership skills that he didn’t need to be our best player. He didn’t have to be an All-American, a Hobey Baker candidate for the team to recognize him. We vote for captains, and it was unanimous that he’d be our captain. It kind of shows you how well-respected he is because of his work ethic and just being a terrific young guy."

"The biggest similarity is that both teams competed to the very finish," Brown said. "I think two years we had something really special. I think we had great leadership, hard-working players. We had a big freshman class that year too. We have the same thing this year too. We have a big freshman class. A lot of times, people say it's hard with the freshman class, but I love it. They've brought so much new energy every day. They're so excited. Everything is a first for them. They really push the older kids to work harder."

2014 Beanpot: No keeping Boston College down (
"The pace of the game was up all game," said Demko. "It was really fun to be a part of. Each possession was just huge for each team; you never knew what was going to happen with guys going up and down the ice here and there. So it was a really fast-paced game and a really fun game to be a part of."

For Northeastern, more than a quarter-century of close calls but no Beanpot titles (
Breaking through to end a streak is never easy. Flash back to 2001 and Boston College was faced with ending a (smaller) drought of its own. Look at what has happened since. "I was just thinking how hard it was to get the first one and how much that’s helped us win some more," Boston College coach Jerry York said. "Winning begets winning."

Tony Gonzalez: "It’s not a matter of if" Matt Ryan becomes elite (ProFootballTalk)
"It’s not a matter of if [Ryan becomes an elite quarterback], it’s just a matter of when and I said that from the first time I saw him throw a football," Gonzalez said. "He is an unbelievable talent. He has unbelievable skill. And the thing that really separates him is his work ethic, and I mention that in the article. There was no stopping him. There was no stopping him."

Yeah but is he ELITE?

Boston College junior Dennis Clifford is done for the season due to knee and ankle issues, but that hasn’t stopped the 7-footer from Bridgewater from showing up at the gym with his teammates.
