- Reggie Jackson: The Co-ACC Player of the Week scored an average of 25.5 points per game last week. He may have also opened some eyes along the way. I don't care how many college basketball games Danny Ainge attends. When someone goes off for 29 against an ACC opponent in front of you, you give them a second look. Right now I think there's a 50-50 shot that this will be Jackson's last year at BC. Next year might be a long one for Donahue.
- John Muse: Muse has been somewhat of a "playoff goalie" at BC in that he doesn't necessarily wow you with his regular season numbers, but is clutch once the tournament starts. This year, he is turning in a .937 save percentage, good for 16th best in the nation (minimum ten games played). By comparison, Muse had a .910 save percentage in last year's regular season, and has a stellar .934 career save percentage in the postseason. If we make the tournament, look out. Muse might be one of the most accomplished college hockey goalies in history by the time all is said and done.
- BC Baseball: Cabin fever is in full throttle here in Boston. I'm sick of the rain and snow and dreaming about a nice game of spring baseball. BC baseball will be getting a new stadium on the Brighton Campus within the next few years. The stadium is said to have a 2,000 seat capacity and a press box. C'mon BC!!! Give us some press credentials!
- Steve Donahue: If you aren't frustrated with BC's defense right now I don't know what to say. Simply put, the defense has not improved from last year. The biggest question surrounding the Donahue hire was whether or not he could put a stout defense on the floor game in and game out. If Donahue can't fix the defense, then he needs to find an assistant coach who can. BC has too much talent to let opponents score nearly 70 point per game. Terrible.
- Josh Southern: Although I told you that Southern's stock would go down once BC hit ACC play, I didn't think it would go down quite this much. Against NC State Southern went 1-6 with 5 total points while against Miami he fared better going 5-8 with 13 points. If BC can get Miami-like production from Southern consistently, I would be absolutely thrilled. However, if his NC State game becomes a pattern against the ACC "elite" this team will struggle. Personally, I think that Southern has become the second most important factor to this team after Jackson but he needs to prove himself against ACC big men.
- Future BC Bowl Destinations: We all know the tired argument about how BC doesn't travel well. While you may agree or disagree with that sentiment, perception is very often reality when it comes to which teams bowls choose to select (let's face it, bowls want to make money). The one good thing that BC has always had going for it is that we seemingly always bring in a good/excellent television audience. No more. Ratings from this year's BC-Nevada match-up were down over 40 percent when compared to last year's USC-BC game. This removes a major selling point from Gene's pitch for BC and will likely worsen our chances of being selected for a better bowl game in future years.
