Got a great show as long time friend of the program, fellow ACC-ist and twitter buddy extraordinaire Brian from BC Interruption joins the program to talk all things ACC, Eagles and league expansion. Brian's got a wealth of knowledge and is just as thorough on air as he is over at BC Interruption so the show is damn good folks. We kick off by talking about BC's move from 2005 and while many folks still wonder how the Eagles fit into the ACC Brian assures me that their move to the ACC has been nothing but positive in terms of their athletic and financial stability.
Since the Eagles often are the most forgotten team in the ACC we jump right into BC's projections for the 2010 season. Although it is early the problems for the Eagles are clear as their passing game lost the leading receiver and they have a mini-QB controversy entering the season. One thing that is a known commodity is Montel Harris the running back who shredded the ACC to the tune of over 1,400 yards. On defense Spaziani's squad returns former ACC defensive player of the year Mark Herzlich from his battle with cancer and preseason All-American Luke Kuechly at the linebacker spot to anchor BC's always stingy defense.
When the talk turns to the ACC as a whole Brian talks about the Atlantic and how the three "frontrunners" Clemson, Florida State and Boston College all have deficiencies in some manner which should make for an interesting race. The positive news for the ACC is that no matter who wins the Atlantic and Coastal the Conference Championship Game will be in Charlotte and not in apathetic Florida. The North Carolina city, my hometown to be more specific, is a universally better location than Jacksonville and Tampa of previous years.
We wrap up with expansion and Brian hits on the reason why the Big Ten Network expansion move is a better deal than the SEC or ACC expansion that has been bandied about. Brian reminds us that anyone would be foolish not to at least entertain the idea of going to the Big Ten if offered a bid and that the Big Ten's model is the king, even if the conference's football doesn't stand up to the SEC's dominance.
