Boston College Eagles (Last Year: 21-13, 9-7 in ACC)

2011-12 Projected Depth Chart:

C: Kyle Caudill (Fr)/Dennis Clifford (Fr)

PF: Ryan Anderson (Fr)/Ryan Kilcullen (Fr)/John Cain Carney (Fr)

G/F: Danny Rubin (So)/Eddie Odio (Fr)/Patrick Heckmann (Fr)

SG: Matthew Humphrey (Jr)/Lonnie Jackson (Fr)/Deirunas Visockas (Sr)/Peter Rehnquist (Jr)

PG: Gabriel Morton (So)/Jordan Daniels (Fr)

Gone: G-Reggie Jackson, PF-Joe Trapani, SF-Corey Raji, PG-Biko Paris, C-Josh Southern, G-John Cahill, PF-Courtney Dunn, SG-Dallas Elmore (transfer)

2011-12 Outlook:
In his first year running the show at Boston College, Steve Donahue did a solid job with a veteran team, nearly leading the Eagles to the NCAA Tournament. However, with seven of their top nine scorers gone from a year ago, including star combo guard Reggie Jackson who left for the NBA after his junior season, Donahue transitions to a re-building project by welcoming 11 new players to town.

Experience will be absent for Boston College this season as sophomores Daniel Rubin and Gabriel Morton are the top returning scorers despite only averaging 4.1 and 2.5 points respectively last season. The addition of Oregon transfer Matthew Humphrey will provide the Eagles with a needed upperclassmen who has at least played significant minutes for more than one season at a high Division I level.

Of the nine freshmen, 6-8 power forward Ryan Anderson figures to make the biggest splash. He is more of a face-up four who can step out and knock down jump shots. Kyle Caudill (6-11) will be counted on to bring the muscle down low while 6-10 Dennis Clifford should also add some athleticism and versatility to the frontcourt. Eddie Odio, John Cain Carney, Patrick Heckmann and Ryan Kilcullen figure to compete for minutes off the bench.

With Rubin, Humphrey and Morton expected to log a lot minutes in the backcourt, freshmen Jordan Daniels and Lonnie Jackson will try to work their way into the rotation. Deirunas Visockas is an unknown for the Eagles. He transfers in from Lafayette College as a graduate student after not playing the past two seasons due to injury.

This figures to be a season filled with growing pains at Boston College... what else can you expect with nearly 88 percent of last year's offense missing? If BC has any ray of hope for not finishing in the cellar of the ACC, it is that several other teams like Georgia Tech, Wake Forest, N.C. State and Maryland are going through their own periods of transition and are also filled with numerous question marks as well as turnover on their roster.

Player to Watch: Matthew Humphrey, SG
During his two years at Oregon, Humphrey was primarily a three-point shooter with two-thirds of his field goal attempts coming from beyond the arc. Donahue and the Eagles will need Humphrey to become a more well rounded player while also bringing leadership to this extremely young team. He already has a year of practicing with B.C. under his belt as he sat out last season which should ease his transition back to real game action.

Key Non-Conference Games:
  • 11/24, 25, 27 vs. Villanova, New Mexico, Washington State, Oklahoma, Santa Clara, St. Louis, UC-Riverside (76 Classic)
  • 11/30 vs. Penn State

    Predicted ACC Finish: 12th

    > Valid or no, the snickering and wikcarcesing about the comments from Fedor's management have been regurgitated to death at pretty much every MMA forum on the Internet for going on two weeks now. And people still think it's witty and novel. Yet this doesn't hold true for Dana White-bashing, So you'll forgive me if I pay it no mind.

    shredding is not in my bag of usual tricks but I can deinlitefy see the benefits in this lesson as it easily adapts to many different genre and styles of guitar playing. And as far as the comments on there being a lack of soul in his playing run? scales and spider exercises for 10 minutes and then show off that purdy mouth

    alsoknownasallenkeys / Why do people alyaws complain about reviews being too low? If their all too low then relatively they are correct. Technically 10 is perfect and 5 should be average so 7/10 is a good score. The game has good aspects but is a bit boring and doesn't have anything special about it just a few old ideas shoved together. 7 out of 10 is as high as it can get for a game like this or every single games that isn't rubbish will be getting 8 s or above

    This game was pretty hyped when they ancnouned a reboot to deus ex last year and any game that is released on a multiplatform makes loads of profit, so personally i think this game had good reception, i actually know a lot of people who purchased it because of its longevity. Besides its a good change of pace considering most games are all about constant action, weak story lines, and 6 hours worth of gameplay, give or take.

    That's my problem as well. I dont want to play minmagies, i want to play an assassin. And my opinion is that they raped the game with so much extra content like investment, bombcrafting, sending assassins to missions, den fights, that on the one hand made other revelant things look smaller, and on the other hand pulls me out of the magic, the environment creates . I miss horses for faster travel, and I find it pretty annoying that now every soldier has rifles and grenades.
