After a 23-10 loss to Virginia Tech two weeks ago, in which Boston College football couldn't get anything going on offense and the defense again struggled versus dual-threat quarterbacks, head coach Steve Addazio stood before the media and made a bold declaration. "It'll come together, and it'll be beautiful," Addazio said. At the time, the statement by Addazio, who is in his fifth year and whose BC record at that point was 26-31 and 10-25 in the ACC, was ridiculed by fans and the Twitter faithful. The way the Eagles had been blown out by ACC teams over the last two years, with the 202-24 margin against the conference's best teams in 2016 and early returns in 2017 not looking good, it was easy to criticize that, in this Year Five, BC should be much better than it was.
Notre Dame is set to host one of its biggest recruiting weekends of the year when the Irish host USC tomorrow. But, the Irish staff continues to put work in on the recruiting trail along with preparing for the upcoming weekend. An offer to one of the nation's top 2019 defensive backs has landed an offer from the Irish. Per his Twitter, Notre Dame has extended an offer to Chesapeake (Va.) Oscar Smith 2019 cornerback Cam'Ron Kelly. The 6-2, 195-pounder ranks as the nation's No. 13 cornerback and No. 146 player nationally. Kelly also holds offers from Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Michigan, Penn State, Stanford, Virginia Tech and others. According to MaxPreps, Kelly recorded 35 total tackles and eight
Ed: Hey, guys. The showdown with Penn State is finally upon us. How are we feeling heading into this one? Anything you saw against Indiana last week that gives you reason to be optimistic? Dan: If the last, I dunno, 6-8 minutes of the game didn’t happen, I’d be feeling about as good as I could have expected heading in. The offensive line finally showed a pulse, the offensive coaching staff made a concentrated effort to get DPJ the ball, and the defense did Don Brown things. The collapse left a bad taste in my mouth because it was the same meltdown recipe we’ve seen way too many times (relative) in the Jim Harbaugh era. John O’Korn stinks, but otherwise, I’m not sure many other units on this team
The 6-5, 225-pounder has been at or near the top of Michigan's tight end board for some time and after taking many visits, both officially and unofficially, he decided that he was finally ready to pull the trigger. He was originally going to wait until closer to National Signing Day but decided that now was the time. Muhammad had been considering offers from Clemson, Georgia, LSU, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Texas, Texas A&M, UCLA and USC but had always been viewed as a Michigan lean. Things started off well back when Jay Harbaugh was still coaching tight ends and U-M never relinquished the top spot. Michigan now has two tight ends committed in the 2018 class in Muhammad and Hamden Hall (Conn.) Hamden
