In what has become a pretty strong (if one-sided) cross-country rivalry, the Eagles host Stanford tonight in the first regular season game of the year for BC athletics. BCEagles.com previews the matchup.
Luke Kuechly is a scary, scary man, as the Ravens found out last night when he forced a fumble and had an interception.
One of New Jersey's most explosive running backs commits to BC. While we were mostly competing against 1-AA schools for this services, as he's undersized (5'7''), this is cool for two reasons: 1) I like having a player named "Alston" playing a few blocks from Allston-Brighton (come to think of it, I like having a player named Sherman, too), 2) If he does become a starter, we can laugh some more at preview magazines that say BC lacks speeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed.
Well, thanks for the confidence boost, Rant Sports. I'd be offended if Rant Sports weren't a poor man's Bleacher Report.
BC junior Emma Plasteras was named to the preseason All-ACC team, while the Eagles were picked 7th in the coaches' poll.
