Frank Spaziani remains cool despite hot seat

Boston College coach Frank Spaziani knows his seat is toasty. Everyone knows it. Spaziani isn't deterred, though, by the doubt surrounding him and his program.

ESPN.com's Jack McCluskey wrote a piece about how Spaziani is handling the pressure heading into this fall, and so far, Spaziani seems to be tackling the question of his job security head-on:

Asked if he felt this season will be a pivotal one for himself and the program, Spaziani wasn't flustered. He's heard this one enough by now.

"Lemme say this: The trend with wins and losses is very obvious to everybody, but the program is going north, not south," he said.

It's his job to prove it -- now.
