  For Boston, for Boston,
  We sing our proud refrain!

  For Boston, for Boston,
  'Tis widsom's earthly fane.

  For here all are one, and
  their hearts are true, and
  The towers on the Heights
  reach to Heaven's own blue.

  For Boston, For Boston,
  Till the echoes ring again!

Boston College Sports: October 24, 2005

Men’s Basketball

With tip-off to the season just four weeks away, the team has been receiving substantial media attention, especially with its recent selection as #2 in the ACC Men’s Basketball preseason poll.

Forward Craig Smith was selected to the preseason All-ACC team.

Smith is also the talk of the ACC according to Richmond Times-Dispatch columnist Mike Harris, who has a very complimentary article about Smith and the BC program.

FOXSports.com is reporting that the team looks like a jigsaw puzzle, with sophomore Sean Williams the missing piece. The article confirms that all expect Williams to be back in the lineup by January. However, Williams was conspicuously absent from the team media guide distributed at ACC media day. Head coach Al Skinner explained that Williams is not “officially in school right now, so we decided to leave him off the roster …until he's officially back." See previous news on Williams here.

The Roanoke Times has a nice piece on the hype around this season, from the ticket sales debacle to complimentary words from Coach K. The bravado of junior star Jared Dudley is on full display, who boasts that “we expect to be No. 1 in this conference” and “we've got the best forward combination in the country.”

More on Williams from the Boston Herald.

An ACC angle, and some great quotes by Skinner, from the Durham Herald-Sun.


Football


According to the Sporting News, Tom O’Brien might pull a last-minute switch and start Matt Ryan instead of Quinton Porter:
Of course, Boston College coach Tom O'Brien wouldn't say it before the game — heck, he wanted to force Virginia Tech to prepare for two quarterbacks — but look for the Eagles to make a change and go with sophomore Matt Ryan instead of senior Quinton Porter on Thursday.

Miscellaneous

Doug Flutie turned 43 yesterday, October 23. Touchdown! Touchdown! Touchdown, Boston College! He did it! Flutie did it!

*UPDATE* If you’re in the New York City area and are looking for a place to watch the Virginia Tech game this Thursday night, join some Superfans at Nation Bar and Grill, 12 West 45th Street (at 5th Avenue) for the 7:30pm kick-off.

The Yawkey Foundation, a charitable organization that seeks to improve the quality of life of youth, families and the underserved, is featured in today’s Boston Globe. A $15 million grant from the organization made possible BC’s Yawkee Athletics Center. On the board of trustees is the Rev. J. Donald Monan, former president of Boston College.

Boston College women's basketball head coach Catchy Inglese will be inducted into the New Agenda Hall of Fame.
