BC's Addazio seeking next Tebow

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Steve Addazio is looking for the quarterback who is going to return Boston College to the consistent nine- and 10-win seasons of a decade ago. Of course he will have all the physical tools and on-field IQ, but Addazio wants intangibles. He wants a quarterback who has "it" -- something as hard to define as it is cliché. Simply put, Addazio says, he is looking for Tim Tebow. “When I saw Tim Tebow, I watched him play in high school and will never forget it.

BC's Gallik on preseason All-ACC team

For the second straight season, Boston College has one representative on the preseason All-ACC team.

BC's Daniels as ACC's top tackler?

The preseason is fast approaching, and you know what that means: It’s prediction time! The folks at NFL.com are taking a swing at forecasting the statistical leaders in six different categories (passing yards, rushing yards, receiving yards, tackles, sacks and interceptions) for leagues across the country. On Monday, it was the ACC’s turn. Most of the names won’t surprise you: Jameis Winston for passing yards, Duke Johnson for rushing yards, Vic Beasley for sacks -- not exactly going out on the proverbial limb.

BC installing 'showcase' video boards

Beginning this fall, replays in Alumni Stadium will come to fans all the way from Brookings, South Dakota. No, the control room hasn’t been outsourced almost 1,600 miles to middle America. The new video boards the Eagles are installing this summer are being manufactured there, at the headquarters of electronic display board company Daktronics, and then trucked to BC in sections. The old video boards, which anyone in Alumni could see were clearly outdated, have been taken down and work is underway on steel supports and electrical wiring for the new boards.
