Eagles Win, Sox Game Two

Posted by Brad on October 13, 2007

The BC Eagles have beaten the Notre Dame Fighting (more like losing) Irish by a score of 27-14.  They really dominated the entire way, and the Irish never really had a chance.  The Irish didn’t score until the third quarter, when Evan Sharpley threw to Robby Parris for the touchdown.  Their other score came on a Matt Ryan interception, also in the third.

The Eagles got two passing touchdowns from Matt Ryan (that’s it???), one to Andre Callender (the running back) and one to Kevin Challenger (a wideout).  Callender also got two rushing touchdowns, to account for their scoring today.

Jimmy Claussen threw two interceptions today (it doesn’t help that his line is crap), one picked off by Tyronne Pruitt and the other by DeJuan Tribble.  This gives BC sole position of the most interceptions in division I-A, with 18.  Claussen went 7-19 for 60 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions.  Evan Sharpley came into the game and went 11-28 for 135 yards and one touchdown.

HEISMAN WATCH (if Ryan is really a candidate…):  Matt Ryan went 32-49 today for 292 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions.  Although he is having an amazing season, I don’t think he is right to win the Heisman.  Although I’d LOVE to see it, I just can’t picture it.  To me, the only way he can be considered is to win a BCS game, or at least get into one.

They play next weekend at Virginia Tech.  This will be the best test for them thus far.  It will be an interesting game.  Stay tune to bosoxfriends for continuing coverage of the BC Eagles.

BY THE WAY:  Number One ranked LSU LOST to Kentucky, BC will likely be ranked 3rd, or if CAL loses, they will be ranked (wait for it…) NUMBER 2!

Moving on to the Red Sox, they play Game Two of the ALCS tonight at 8:00 on FOX and WRKO 680.  Curt Schilling (old) will be facing off against Fausto Carmona (young).  It should be a good one as both of these pitchers pitched well in their last starts. 

After a huge game (4-4 combined and 10-10 in terms of getting on base) both David Ortiz and Manny Ramirez will be looking to continue their hot streak.  Manny is batting .500 in the playoffs and Ortiz is batting .778!  They both have two homeruns and 25 combined RBI.  They have carried the team through the playoffs and should continue this streak.

If you ask me, this is the biggest game of the series (unless in goes six or seven) because I have NO faith in Dice-K in game two.  Although he has looked good as an MLB rookie, he has been up and down all year.  If we lose this game, we are going to be in trouble because there is a chance we could go down in the series two games to one (not good).

But, despite all this, I think that Schilling will get it done tonight.  Although Carmona is an unbelievably good pitcher, I think the pressure of pitching at Fenway Park (America’s most beloved ballpark) is going to get to the 23 year old righty.  I think Schilling is just too good in the playoffs.

Assuming the Sox offense satys as hot as they have been (not a guarantee) they will win tonight, and you can flick to the Bruins in San Jose (the NHL favorite, oh well).  They’ll win in a closer one : 6-4

Talk at ‘ya later.
