Boston College: Phil Jurkovec is deemed eligible by the NCAA. Eagles get their man

Phil Jurkovec is a free man. Well sort of. The Notre Dame transfer was finally granted eligibility by the NCAA. Just in time for the start of training camp. Waiver. Granted. @pjurkovec #GetIn pic.twitter.com/SPxUJFpCcT — BC Football (@BCFootball) August 4, 2020 Jurkovec’s eligibility was in question for the past six months but Jeff Hafley and his staff finally got the news they have been waiting for today. Jurkovec is the…


Patriots: So what will the Patriots quarterback competition look like? Here’s some insight

Bill Belichick said in his press conference with the media on Friday that Cam Newton, Jarrett Stidham and Brian Hoyer will compete for the starting quarterback job in camp. Of course we haven’t had a “quarterback competition” around these parts since 1993 when rookie Drew Bledsoe competed against Scott Zolak for the starting job in Bill Parcells first year. Of course if he want a true quarterback competition, you probably…


Boston College: It’s official. The Eagles are playing but the schedule is different

The ACC announced on Wednesday that the conference is playing football this fall. The conference will play ten conference games and one non conference game. This allows for late season rivalries like Clemson and South Carolina, Florida and Florida State and Kentucky and Louisville to continue. If all goes well with COVID-19, all fall sports in the ACC will begin between Sept 7th and Sept 12th. The conference will play…


Bill Belichick spoke on Friday, shedding some light on the state of the Patriots.

By Kevin Stone/@kstone06 For the first time since signing Cam Newton and since six of his players opted out of this odd season on the horizon, Bill Belichick spoke to the media via Zoom on Friday. The 20-ish minute call also aired on NBC Sports Boston and Belichick had quite a few interesting things to say, something that I’m not sure many people saw coming. Bill openly supported the players…


Sports are the ultimate reality TV show and the 2020 NFL season could be wildest one yet

By Kevin J. Stone/@kstone06 I am not a reality TV fan, never have been, never will be. Having said that, sports are the ultimate reality TV show, and this year’s NFL season may be the wildest version of reality  television that we’ve ever seen. What’s most important to remember this season is why we watch as sports fans. We watch because usually (sketchy NBA referees aside) we don’t know what…


High School: Get to know the name Joenel Aguero. You are going to hear a lot about him in the coming years

Photo courtesy of Rose Raymond/fotoworks If you don’t know who St. John’s Prep athlete Joenel Aguero is, you will found out soon enough. Aguero is the most highly touted prospect to come out of Massachusetts in a long time and that is saying a lot when you consider all of the talent the state has produced in recent years. Aguero is the class of 2023 yet he already holds 11…


Patriots: Here is who could replace Marcus Cannon, Dont’a Hightower and Patrick Chung internally

Six Patriots players decided to opt out of the 2020 season yesterday due to COVID-19. Now that the dust has settled a little bit, the question is. How will the Patriots replace them? We don’t know if Bill Belichick is going to use the $24 million he now has in cap space. Chances are, he will roll most of the cap space into next season. If he does that, that…


Patriots: Youth and inexperience highlight the 2020 Patriots staff

Jedd Fisch is the most prominent Patriots coaching hire this off-season. The Patriots announced their 2020 coaching staff today and one of the first things that jumps out at you is just how much youth and inexperience there is on this staff. Image courtesy of Mike Reiss. Offensively, the addition of Quarterbacks coach Jedd Fisch is significant. Fisch has been a long time coordinator at the NFL and college levels…


Patriots: Hightower and Cannon headline the list of Patriots opting out of the 2020 season

Linebacker Dont’a Hightower opting out of the 2020 season is a huge blow to the Patriots defense. After signing free agent quarterback Cam Newton in June, Patriots fans were once again talking Super Bowl. Those plans however have taken a major hit in the last 12 hours with the announcement that right tackle Marcus Cannon and linebacker Dont’a Hightower have both opted out of the 2020 season due to concerns…
