(An outsiders musings about what is happening at Boston College, aka The Heights)

So here’s the deal Boston College fans.

If the Eagles can come up with a victory on Saturday at the University of Virginia, the Eagles will climb back to .500 at 4-4.

And that will look a whole lot better than the 2-6 many people–including a Jersey Guy–had projected only a few weeks ago, going into a three game stretch against Louisville, Virginia and Florida State.

Part of the residual effects of last week’s 45-42 upset at Louisville was that it made all things seem possible at The Heights, including–don’t laugh–a SWEEP–of the three games.

Don’t laugh.

Virginia is having a breakthrough season under second year coach Bronco Mendenhall with a 5-1 record, but the Cavs have survived as much as they have won, which means they can lose on any given Saturday.

And then we have FSU, which will be tested on Saturday against Louisville. The Seminoles have already lost 3 games this season. A loss against the Cardinals will put them at 2-4 going into next Friday night’s game against BC at The Heights. Who knows how a four loss Seminole team will perform, or if they will perform at all. The rest of this article is available to subscribers only – to become a subscriber click here.
