BC's defense deserves credit

Virginia Tech's offense hasn't been as explosive as many of us thought it would be this summer, but the Hokies are still very good. That's why it's a testament to BC's defense that the Eagles are only trailing 13-0 in the third quarter despite two turnovers. Virginia Tech defensive end Chris Drager sacked quarterback Dave Shinskie, forced the fumble and recovered it, but BC held the Hokies to a field goal. Virginia Tech defensive coordinator Bud Foster gets a lot of praise for being able to reload on D -- and deservedly so -- but coach Frank Spaziani has built and maintained the standard on defense in Chestnut Hill.
