Weekend preview: BC sports start back up
After a little post-Christmas lull, BC sports start up anew Saturday. For some it will be about another championship charge, for others it will be about setting a course back to respectability.
Hockey takes on Alabama-Huntsville on Saturday as part of the Mariucci Classic. Hunstville is terrible and shouldn't pose much of a threat. Sunday is a different story. BC takes on Minnesota. The Gophers are the No. 4 ranked team in the country and should serve as a good barometer. The game is televised (check your local sport channels).
Basketball faces Holy Cross. BC has won three in a row and desperately needs to keep that momentum going. BC only has a few more chances to pad the win total before ACC play.
Football remains in a dead period for recruiting, but that doesn't mean Addazio is not at work. The staff cannot travel, but they can still host recruits and have limited phone contact. As the lower level bowls wrap up, I expect Addazio to finalize his staff. A slew of coaches will now be looking for new jobs, and some NFL staffs will get fired on Monday. There are plenty of good guys out there.
