114 Days for 2014 Boston College Football: The Summer Series


Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

114 days from today is Saturday, August 30, 2014.

That might not mean a lot to you now — maybe you have a wedding to attend, or maybe that’s your kid’s birthday. It also happens to be the date of Boston College football’s opener against the UMass Minutemen. Some people have probably already acquired their ticket(s), and the author of this piece is amongst them.

We have 114 days until 2014 Boston College football. Sure, we could have done a series called “14 Days for ’14 Boston College Football” but how is that going to get us through the summer? No, this is better, because from now until the Fall, and straight through it, this is Eagles football territory.

Count on at least one Boston College football article every single day, including holidays like the 4th of July, from now until the opener. Of course, count on them afterwards as well.

As one might imagine, that is a lot of time to kill. A general scope of the summer looks like this:

  • Through early August: Learning about the players on the 2014 Eagles — all of them. Please also find enclosed the unrelated 2013-14 Year-in-Review series in which we evaluate all Boston College sports from hockey to fencing.
  • Early August: Same thing as before, just for the coaches.
  • Most of the rest of August: Unit previews and miscellaneous breakdowns of the 2014 season, including predictions.

It’s going to be a long, hot summer. Join us in passing the time until the maroon and gold returns.
