“As I kept coming back and coming back again, I could just get that vibe from the players that something great was about to happen,” Dillon said. “It kind of sounds crazy, but it’s definitely just a feeling. You can feel it in the locker room, you can feel it talking to the coaches and talking to fans that we’re ready to take the next step. I feel like we’re there again.”

Probably belongs on a different thread...but any idea why I can't post an image? Suggestions I am using the IMG tag, but nothing shows up. Using Google chrome as a browser and IMUGR as image hosting.

I can put up the link but can't embed the image.

Forde-Yard Dash: 6 teams that could shake up the College Football Playoff picture

Pat Forde,Yahoo Sports•September 16, 2018

Chestnut Hill (3). Last time Boston College’s Alumni Stadium hosted a truly significant November game? That was 2007, when the Eagles were undefeated and ranked No. 2 and Florida State came to town to quickly restore ACC order. (BC lost that game and two others.) With that in mind, go ahead and circle Nov. 10 on your calendar, the date Clemson visits the Eagles. Maybe that game will matter.

Maybe throw some snow or cold into the forecast — things Clemson doesn’t deal with often — and see what happens.

While it very much remains to be seen what shape 3-0 Boston College will be in when the Tigers arrive, Clemson seemingly faces few legitimate challenges between now and then. A schedule of Georgia Tech, Wake Forest and Florida State on the road and Syracuse, North Carolina State and Louisville at home seems rather manageable.

Too bad that's 13 Virginia Tech and not Georgia Tech. And a ranked Miami team is in there too. NC St is also a road game. Nice work though Forde.

BC notebook: Steve Addazio not swept away by Top 25 ranking
Tells team to ‘just go about business’

http://www.bostonherald.com/sports/college/college_football/2018/09/bc_notebook_steve_addazio_not_swept_away_by_top_25_ranking

Steve Addazio tried to downplay the significance of Boston College’s first Top 25 ranking in his six seasons at The Heights.

BC was elevated to No. 23 in the AP poll and 25th in the Amway Coaches Top 25 following a 41-34 victory at Wake Forest last Thursday.

He deserves a little credit for this, he assembled the talent and has yet to fuck it up. This is top 25 roster if he stays out of his own way, and he should be complimented for assembling it.

I actually think Daz is a good program manager. I realize this is a minority opinion here.

He hires good coaches that recruit and develop talent well. We've come a long way since the Spaz Dumpster Fire years. I think he doesn't make in-game adjustments or decisions quickly enough but he's mitigated that in the past with hires like PP and then relying on him for in-game help. Is he a prick to the media or to anyone that questions him? Of course, but as someone pointed out here recently, so are most coaches e.g. Belichik. Contrary to some, he's done a really good job overall to this point despite some mistakes along the way (Wake game, not recruiting a QB for that year which we had to rely on Fadule, etc.).

I'm curious what happens if we have a big season this year. Will other schools want to hire him? Will he want to stay or leave? I actually think he would stay (much to the detriment of TRE (rhymes with homo) and all others who despise him) but maybe I am way off base here. Hard to imagine a better situation than this. Zero media scrutiny for a P5 job. I could also see Leahy-hoo opening up the wallet a bit to keep him as well.

As I said about 10 wins, if he turns into a genius like Belichick, he can be a prick to whomever he wants.

He's not going anywhere. He's older, he's more of a builder as a recruiter, he's very catholic, and he's very safe. And I think he thinks he can be in the hunt for the division most years.

quite possible, but what if Harbaugh goes 8-4? Weren't there "reports" of Michigan putting feelers out for Daz a couple of yrs ago? probably a reach, but it had enough traction that the Michigan guys I know asked me about what Daz was like.

Boston College's Jeff Smith makes successful switch from QB to WR
Rich Thompson Wednesday, September 19, 2018

Smith was quarterback Anthony Brown’s go-to split end in both the pass and run against the Demon Deacons. Smith caught six passes for a career-high 145 yards (with a long of 71) and two touchdowns. He also carried the ball on three jet sweeps for 42 yards with a long of 30.

I had forgotten this tidbit:

Smith was recruited to play quarterback out of Clearwater Central Catholic in St. Petersburg, Fla. He was under center in nine games as a true freshman and made his first career start at No. 3 Clemson.

Smith switched to wide receiver his sophomore year when Addazio brought in graduate transfer quarterback Patrick Towles from Kentucky.

Smith completed a 20-yard reverse option touchdown pass to Towles in BC’s 36-30 win over Maryland in the Quick Lane Bowl in 2016.
