For more information on the Boston College Eagles, be sure to visit BC Interruption or like them on Facebook. To learn more about the baseball squad up in Chestnut Hill, we sat down with Dan Rubin, one of the contributing editors, to discuss the program. I've worked with Dan a couple times in the past, and it's always been a lot of fun. So, he and I got together to have more fun and talk some baseball. What could be better?!
Oh yeah, and before we get started, I fulfilled the other half of this "home and home" Q&A series for Dan and BCI. You can read my side of things right here.
Here we go...
State of the U: Obviously coaching plays a major role in team success. Can you tell us the effect that Mike Gambino has had on rebuilding the Eagles' program?
State of the U: Boston College has never made it to Super Regionals before in program history. What has been the change to help the Eagles make this run?
Stevens stepped up to the plate and elevated his game, though he took a couple of lumps in facing the best of the best and his performance gradually leveled off. King continued his dominance on Sundays, and he put together one of BC's most successful seasons as a starter since 2010.
State of the U: The pitching staff for the Eagles has been lights out. Who are the leaders of that group?
State of the U: Who are the leading hitters that could potentially propel the Eagles past the Canes?
State of the U: Ok, hypothetical scenario time: How can Boston College need to do win the Super Regional?
State of the U: Hypothetical scenario two: How can Boston College lose the Super Regional?
State of the U: What's your prediction for the Miami vs Boston College Super Regional?
