    Spring Practice Preview: Boston College

    The Noles have a lot of paybacks this year after the season they had in 2006. The Noles were beaten by Boston College in Tallahassee and now they look to reciprocate. BC has a new head coach since Tom O'Brien left for NC State. The Noles play BC on Nov.3:

    Top returner- QB Matt Ryan: Some say that Ryan is the best quarterback in the Atlantic Coast Conference. If he steps up his play this fall, Ryan just might rank among the top quarterbacks in the nation.

    Player on the verge- WR Brandon Robinson: Robinson caught 36 passes for 490 yards and one touchdown in a reserve role last season. Now that Tony Gonzalez has completed his senior season, Robinson should move into the starting lineup and get into the end zone more often this fall.

    Impact newcomer- TE Jordon McMichael: This redshirt freshman and former four-star prospect could thrive under new offensive coordinator Steve Logan, who utilized a pass-oriented offense during his stint as East Carolina's head coach.

    The big question- How quickly can the Eagles adjust?: Boston College has a lineup full of upperclassmen and a coaching staff full of newcomers. The Eagles' chances of challenging for an Atlantic Coast Conference title could depend on how fast the players can adjust to new coach Jeff Jagodzinski, a former Boston College offensive coordinator.

    Spring practice starting date: March 24

    Spring game: April 28
