Louisville vs. Boston College: 5 Big Questions — #4

Now that the Eagles have locked up bowl eligibility, is it natural to assume that there will be a bit of let-up in them?

That is probably not a safe assumption.

Steve Addazio and his coaching staff, but especially the coach himself, are fire-breathing, take-no-prisoners type guys. Losing football games makes Addazio look like he is literally in pain, as though someone has just ripped out his heart like in that gruesome scene in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, minus the ritual sacrifice and all that.

Having never been a football player at as a high level as this, there is no way for an outsider to know what is going on in the minds of these young men. About all we can say is that Addazio is probably not content for the guys to sit where they are at six wins, and the players should be careful likewise not to be content with where they are.

Every win the team adds to the total is another win closer to stability and prolonged relevance. Further, there might be recruits visiting or watching this primetime game, and the Eagles always must put their best foot forward.
