It was a simple football play: a hit that knocked a player down on his back. The defense rallied around its defensive back, while Johnathan Coleman took a few seconds to get back up on his feet.
Sources confirm that Bill McGovern is leaving BC to join the Philadelphia Eagles.

After sitting out for the middle chunk of the season, Deuce Finch returned to the backfield in a big role on Saturday against Virginia Tech. Finch brings the speed and necessary thump to move the chains, and that’s what he did. He rushed for 138 yards on 26 carries for a 5.3 yards per carry average. Finch also led the Eagles with five receptions for 53 yards, all on swing passes or screens.

The search is finally over-Boston College has its new Athletic Director. Fifty-three days after Gene DeFilippo announced his retirement as AD, Brad Bates will be introduced today as the new AD on the Heights, a BC source has confirmed to The Heights.
Entering this past weekend of games, Boston College middle linebacker Nick Clancy led all of college football with 43 tackles. More than half of those were racked up in last Saturday’s contest against Northwestern, where his 24-tackle performance earned him ACC player of the week honors. But if it weren’t for an injury during Clancy’s junior year of high school, he might not have even played football in college.
