  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: November 8, 2005

It's been a relatively slow news week, here are some highlights:


Matt Ryan will get the start at quarterback over Quinton Porter against N.C. State this Saturday. This is the last game home game of the season, and thus the final chance to cheer on our seniors - Blackmon, Brochu, Ricky Brown, Henderson, Lester, Chris Miller, Porter, Trueblood, Washington, Jazzmen Williams, and co-captains Kiwanuka and Ross.

The game is currently scheduled to air on ESPN2 and is set for a 7:15 pm kickoff (although I believe this is still subject to change).

Women's Soccer

The women's soccer team has qualified for the NCAA Tournament and will face Dartmouth in the first round on Thursday, Nov. 10 in Storrs, Conn. The Eagles enter their third-straight NCAA tournament with an 11-5-2 overall record. Last year, BC advanced to the Sweet 16 for the second time in school history.

Men's Basketball

The men's basketball team has entered the Associated Press Top 25 poll at #11.

The lengthy Blue Ribbon analysis of BC's 2005-2006 Basketball team has been posted over at ACCTalk.net.

UPDATE: Senior Craig Smith was named to the Associated Press first-team All America.

Women's Ice Hockey

The Eagles made history this weekend by defeating fifth-ranked New Hampshire for their first ever victory over the Wildcats in 35 tries. BC improved to 3-1-3 overall and 2-1-1 in the Hockey East.

Gratuitous Cheap-Shot at Boston University

Not that this has anything to do with sports, or is relevant to Boston College at all... but I could not help but snicker at this. Peruse the list of schools to get a sense of BU's peer institutions. I suppose 12/02/2005 just won't come soon enough for us BC hockey fans.
