ESPN Two-Sport Rankings

Not that they really mean a lot, but it was nice to see ESPN's 2-sport rankings (based on the Sagarin ratings) place BC as the #6 school in the country for combined football and basketball. Pulling in behind Texas, Florida, LSU, Oklahoma, and Wisconsin, BC is the top ACC school as well as the top private school in the ratings, just ahead of Notre Dame at #7 (and after the two Catholic schools there is a huge drop-off before the next private institution, USC at #28). Not bad.

Also, a little birdie told me today that Ole Miss assistant head coach/OL coach Art Kehoe is among the leading candidates for the offensive coordinator job at FSU. Kehoe spent 25 years coaching (and 2 years playing) at Miami, and as such will be very familiar not only with the 'Noles but also with several of their ACC rivals, including BC. Without knowing a lot about the guy, it seems like a good hire based on his pedigree. Obviously this is not official yet.

Wow, to be #6 on a list dominated by big state universities... I agree that in the grand scheme of sports it probably doesn't mean a whole lot, but I think it still shows that BC does care about its athletics.

Be glad Kehoe is going to FSU.. he is a terrible o-line coach and lived off the talent of Miami's skill positions for years.

The sole reason Miami has slipped is the play of the O-line, Brock Berlin and Kyle Wright have had no time to throw. And if you need further evidence look at how mamy Miami O Line guys from the last 4 years are in the pros and then look at how good Frank Gore is now.
