A roundtable discussion of key players, best and worst case scenarios, and strengths and weaknesses ahead of the 2019 season.
In his press conference at media day, new Eagles defensive coordinator Bill Sheridan spoke about BC’s promising freshmen class, and key returning players including Brandon Sebastian and Isaiah McDuffie.
With AJ Dillon sitting out, David Bailey and Javian Dayne stood out carrying the ball, and the new secondary pieces looked strong in the annual spring game.
Since arriving at BC, Director of Athletics Martin Jarmond has provided a support system for first-generation student-athletes, hosting meet-and-greets and debuting an informative and inclusive panel discussion.
The Eagles had a chance to clinch their first eight-win season since 2009, but Steve Addazio elected to punt the game away to Florida State, which kept its 36-year bowl streak alive with a 74-yard game-winning touchdown.
Michael Walker returned a punt 74 yards for a touchdown in the first quarter, but the Eagles managed just 113 total yards of offense and eight first downs in a dismal performance against the Tigers and their excellent defensive line.
Despite missing opportunities in the first half, BC used a breakout game from Travis Levy and a strong second-half defensive effort to score 21 unanswered points and down the Hokies on the road.
David Bailey ran for 112 yards on 28 carries as BC controlled both sides of the line of scrimmage, holding Louisville to just 47 yards rushing on 32 carries in its 38-20 win over the Cardinals Saturday.
