It's finally starting (sort of). After a long summer, the sons and daughters of Boston College return to playing fields today to start the sports season.
The women's soccer team has an exhibition match against Providence College this afternoon at 1 PM on Newton Campus. On Sunday, the men's soccer team plays the year's first honest-to-goodness, counts-toward-the-Capital-One-Cup-thing event of the year, a home game against Northeastern. Next week, Field Hockey gets started as well. And, of course, we are 8 days away from kickoff against Villanova.

The problem is that there probably aren't enough good players to go around to make a return to the postseason anything more than a wishful longshot.

Danbury High point guard Rachel Gartner -- who, along with twin sister Rebecca, forms the program's dynamic backcourt duo -- has landed a full athletic scholarship to Boston College, the Danbury Board of Education announced in a release Thursday.
5. LEARN A NEW PRO-STYLE OFFENSE: Miles hired former Boston College coach and Atlanta Falcons offensive line coach Jeff Jagodzinski as offensive coordinator. Jagodzinski, who coached Matt Ryan at Boston College, inherits senior receivers Albert Wilson, who led the team with 48 catches for 947 yards and seven touchdowns, and Danny Williams, who had 20 catches.
