Happy Monday, friends. It was a good weekend for BC, highlighted by the hockey team's pulverization of Wisconsin on Friday night. Now it's a big game week for both football and hockey as both teams get ready for road trips - football to North Carolina and hockey to Minnesota. To the links...
The 38-year-old Hasselbeck has settled into a comfortable spot as Andrew Luck's backup, and they clearly thought he was a good part to have around at a reasonable rate (he signed a two-year, $7.25 million deal).
The Seminoles' defense is really good. After a rough start to the season in which the unit looked shaky against the likes of Bethune-Cookman and Boston College, there were legitimate concerns that new coordinator Jeremy Pruitt had installed a scheme that simply wasn't going to work with FSU's personnel.
You know what? you, ESPN.
Boston College tied Miami, 3-3, in a road game in the ACC conference on Sunday afternoon. BC is now 8-7-1 on the season.
After finishing in the cellar of the Hockey East standings last season, not much was expected of the Northeastern Huskies entering 2013-14. All of a sudden, NU is 4-0 after consecutive weekend sweeps in non-conference play.
Uh.......for real, New England Hockey Journal? Can we wait until Northeastern defeats a Division I opponent first before writing a story like this? I think NU's best win of the year was against Dalhousie.
You know what Hockey East cellar-dweller from 2012-2013 deserves effusive praise for their effort this weekend? UMass. Did anyone see them sweeping Michigan State this weekend? I certainly thought the series would go the other way entirely. As much as we like to rib UMass in this space... that was a good series for them.
The Terps suffered a devastating double injury blow Saturday when both Stefon Diggs and Deon Long broke their legs in a loss to Wake Forest.
Sophomore Katty Workman registered a team-high 11 kills to go with six digs while teammate Amanda Yerke notched nine kills and a match-high 12 digs in the Eagles' 3-0 loss to Maryland on Sunday afternoon.The Terrapins (11-9, 3-5 ACC) defeated the Eagles (8-12, 0-8 ACC) in straight sets, 25-21, 25-21, and 25-20.
Is there any way Devils coach Pete DeBoer could avoid starting Cory Schneider in Columbus Tuesday night after the goalie shut out the Rangers?
"No," DeBoer said after Sunday's practice.
