I want to believe that the 59-7 score was not indicative of the talent difference between these two programs right now but I am afraid it is. B.C doesn’t have the athletes to match up with Clemson. 2. The Globe’s Julian Benbow wrote a story on Sunday that Rutgers might be interested in hiring Eagles coach Steve Addazio….
