March 31, 2021

Imagine believing in something so much, that you turn down a rare, perhaps life-altering opportunity for it. That’s what associate head coach Aazaar Abdul-Rahim and offensive line coach Matt Applebaum did during the offseason. Both coaches had chances to go to a Power 5 school and the NFL and both of them declined so they could stay with Jeff Hafley and the rest of the BC staff. Odds are each…

March 27, 2021

It wasn’t the way they’d envisioned it growing up, but for a plethora of college players, Pro Day at Boston College on Friday was a dream come true. With 35 NFL personnel on hand, 12 former BC players stepped into Fish Field House for the Eagles’ annual Pro Day as the NFL Draft creeps ever closer.

Boston College: Lukabu’s defense could be flying under the radar in 2021

March 26, 2021

We’re only three practices into the spring portion of Boston College’s 2021 season, but there’s been plenty of reason to be optimistic this early if you’re an Eagles fan. We’ve talked about the return of Phil Jurkovec and a plethora of offensive weapons, but what about the defense? Sure, the losses of guys like Isaiah McDuffie and Max Richardson will be tough, but second-year defensive coordinator Tem Lukabu is still…


Boston College: Eagles offense ready to roll with Cignetti & Jurkovec entering year two

March 23, 2021

If you thought Phil Jurkovec’s first year as the Boston College quarterback was good, wait until year two. At this point last year offensive coordinator Frank Cignetti Jr. and Jurkovec were still pretty unfamiliar with each other. More importantly. Jurkovec was unfamiliar with the offensive system Cignetti was planning on running and he was unfamiliar with his teammates. The Eagles were back in the field house for their second spring…


Boston College: Eagles bring the energy on first day of spring practice

March 21, 2021

Saturday was a big day at The Heights. For the first time since deciding to pass on an opportunity to play in a bowl game, the entire BC football team was back together for the first day of spring practice.

They’re baaack. Well, sort of. On Saturday the Eagles will officially open the spring ball season with their first practice. Before that, head coach Jeff Hafley met with the media on Tuesday afternoon to discuss a number of topics. There was quite a bit of interesting stuff that Hafley had to say, so let’s get right into it: HAFLEY ON THE COACHING STAFF REMAINING IN TACT After a strong  first…


Boston College: Eagles drop season finale to Virginia, but complete a remarkable year

December 6, 2020

Photo by Ryan M. Kelly/Getty Images CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA — The 2020 Boston College football team deserved a better ending than the one it potentially had on Saturday night. The Eagles wrapped up an unimaginably difficult season with a 43-32 loss to Virginia despite backup quarterback Dennis Grosel tying Doug Flutie’s single-game program passing record with 520 yards. At first glance, BC’s final 6-5 record (5-5 ACC) is nothing to get…


Boston College: Taking a step back during the bye week(s)

November 20, 2020

Coaches and players came back to begin quarantine in late June. Since then, the Eagles have had a few days off here and there, but it’s pretty much been five straight months of grinding. Aside from that, the Eagles have stunningly had over 7,000 negative Covid tests…
