Boston College Football Countdown: 58 Days to Go

BC Football: 58 Days to Go

You want to get back outside to your barbecues (though probably not at the early hour at which this is posted — my point is, we know you’re busy and don’t want to be stuck inside all day reading about BC football — or maybe you do), so let’s get this over with. 58 days until Boston College football.

Who Wears 58 Now

Victor Nelson, OL, sophomore

Nelson is a redshirt sophomore who still has yet to play in a game at Boston College. This Illinois native was a three-star recruit who turned down his home-state’s major public university to play for the Eagles.

Notables Who Wore 58

Kevin Clemente, LB, 1969-71. 1971 team captain; passed away in 2009.

Obligatory Mark Herzlich Mention

A Celebration of American Gluttony

In the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest, a 4th of July tradition, Joey Chestnut has eaten 58 or more hot dogs five times. Meanwhile, I’ll have one today, maybe two.
