Don't Look Now, but Boston College Is Not Terrible

It's not fair to judge Steve Donahue on last year's 9-22 (4-12) season, just like it's not fair to judge him on his first year at BC when he went 21-13 with two postseason wins. He inherited a team with Reggie Jackson, Joe Trapani, Corey Raji, etc... and then promptly lost them all. Five guys played at least half the team's minutes last year and four of them were freshmen. The fifth was a junior who had transferred from Oregon and was on his way to transferring to West Virginia. Their losses read like a who's who of not to lose to: Holy Cross, Boston University, Rhode Island, Wake Forest. They had the 293rd ranked offense in the nation.
