SORT BY Relevancy
A few short weeks ago, Boston College was 3-1 on the season. The main questions about the team didn't center on if they would ever win again; it instead asked how the newer players would be brought along to score points and get the team on the move as competition leveled off after Florida State. Teams like Wake Forest and Duke were on the horizon, keeping expectations around what fans considered normal.
Now sliding after a three-game losing streak, the Eagles are 3-4 with offensive points at a premium. They deconstructed and began reconstructing on the fly, with Jeff Smith named quarterback this past week. As players start to come back, the Eagles are improving, but the fear now is that the learning curve's gradient is too steep for them to consistently win football games.
Boston College now heads to Louisville facing questions on if they can win a football game. They took strides forward against the Clemson Tigers and played better. There were definite improvements in the Eagle game. But even though they hung tough in the first half, Clemson was simply better, and they pulled away en route to a 34-17 victory.
Dan and AJ will take a progress report of the Eagles and dissect the status of the different positions. They'll talk about the improvements made and the areas where there are still holes. They'll talk about how those need to get better and how they can actually fulfill that need.
Tune in at 8 PM as they discuss this and get ready for the Louisville Cardinals. In a disappointing ACC season, everything is wide open, which means this is a chance for the Eagles to get back on the winning track. Give us a call at 646-200-0446 as we discuss all that is going on in BC nation!
John and Dan are joined by special guest Mark Ennis, to chat about Louisville's move to the ACC, their expectations for 2014 and of course, beer.
Tonight Vinny & Terry talk Kentucky Wildcats sports: the win over the Charlotte 49ers, a look ahead to the Louisville Cardinals. There were the hoops victories over the Wright State Raiders and Boston Terriers. Friday Cal and Co. head south to face Coach O and the USF Bulls.
The Ohio State Buckeyes fell in their first real test of the season against the Michigan State Spartans. Can they bounce back when they face the Michigan Wolverines Saturday?
It still sounds funny saying it, but NBA history was made last night as the Golden State Warriors won their 16th consecutive game.
Kobe . . . Kobe . . Kobe

And just like that, the Eagles were bowl eligible.
At 6-3 with three games left to play, Boston College is heading to postseason play for the second straight year. The dark ages of the Frank Spaziani era are well in our rear view mirrors, and the good times are rolling thanks to Steve Addazio, Ryan Day, Don Brown, and a bunch of players we weren't sure of when the season started in August.
On Saturday, Boston College looks to boost its postseason resume for potential bowl games when they take on the Louisville Cardinals. A first year entrant into the ACC, the basketball powerhouse is also a strong football program back under the direction of Bobby Petrino. The Cardinals are coming off a near miss against Florida State, and they head north for the programs' first meeting since 1998.
There's much we don't know about Louisville, but there's also a lot on the table to discuss. BC got beat up a little bit by Virginia Tech, so health could be an issue. Jon Hilliman and Tyler Murphy both got dinged up with the former departing the game early for good.
Potential bowl bids are now at stake. After sneaking into the Advocare V100 Bowl in Shreveport, LA last season with seven unlikely wins, BC is now on the verge of gaining a coveted "Tier Two" spot in a bowl such as the Pinstripe Bowl in New York City. Where else could the Eagles land?
So much is there to discuss and you can do it with Dan and AJ starting at 8:00 PM EST. Join us and call in at 646-200-0446 to talk Eagles football!
Katina Powell, a self-described former escort, is the catalyst of a recruiting scandal involving the basketball program at the University of Louisville. It all started with a meeting with former player and graduate assistant Andre McGee. Powell told ESPN's Outside The Lines that she and her three daughters, along with several dancers, made several transactions for money with players, recruiting sponsors and others during parties at a dorm between 2010 and 2014. She's published a book "Breaking Cardinal Rules: Basketball and the Escort Queen", and she's built all the stories in a journal. There are many questions that linger in this story. I'll try to dissect this crazy, yet totally believable, story and try to guess what the consequences will be for Louisville and head coach Rick Pitino. Join me at (347) 308-8219 for a conversation about sex, money and basketball.
On Tuesday's edition of All Subjects Everything, we changed our plans and talked about the Univeristy of Louisville's sex scandal, which got even wilder when former Cardinals men's basketball players admitted to attending parties thrown by the basketball staff which included strippers and sexual favors/liasons.
We also discussed why this scandal falls solely on the shoulders of Rick Pitino because this isn't first time at the rodeo with this kind of situation. As always, there will be more to the story coming, so expect more discussion on this in future shows as information becomes available.
Tonight Vinny and Terry look back at the Kentucky Wildcats' narrow escape against the Eastern Kentucky Colonels and look ahead to the semi bye week before the Auburn Tigers come to town.
The Louisville Cardinals have a lot going on, we'll probe into that.
A current Wildcat and a former Wildcat basketball player are dealing with injuries. We'll also recap NFL and MLB happenings.
Chad Pugh of Nation of Blue joins us to talk all things BBN at 6:30. Kentucky Track coach Edrick Floreal stops by to chat with us at 7:05!
Tune in, give us a call at (845)277-9373 or tweet us at @CatsTalkWed.
This is Revenge of the Birds Radio's 100th episode! It happens to come after one of the best wins of the season by the Arizona Cardinals. They got a win for the second week in a row on Sunday Night Football against a quality opponent, defeating the then 8-1 Cincinnati Bengals 34-31 in a thriller that went down to the wire. Hosts Jess Root and Seth Cox talk about the win and what it means moving forward.
Is there a team who can beat the Cardinals and stop their potent offense? They put up 39 against the 2nd-ranked scoring defense in Week 10 and then 34 on the league's top-ranked scoring defense. The hosts praise the play and the season of Carson Palmer, who might be playing th quarterback position better than anyone else in the NFL.
They look at the many good things from the game, including the breakout game by rookie 5th round pick J.J. Nelson and the contributions of other rookies.
They discuss the season moving forward and then touch on the latest Daryl Washington news.
Have a listen and head on over to Revenge of the Birds to keep the conversation going.
