Flutie decides to go to BC!

Flutie plans to attend BC:  (You may be thinking to yourself, "self, why the hell is this guy who has a website all about Philly sports always posting shit about Boston College?"  Well, it is because I like chicken and beer.)

Link to article in the Natick Bulletin.  I hear lots of hot chics come from Natick?

He knows what people will be thinking. The name on the back of the Boston College maroon-and-gold jersey -- FLUTIE -- will stick out. It will evoke memories of the greatest quarterback in the school's history, its only Heisman Trophy winner. One of the most enduring storybook careers in college sports history.

     It could only happen once, right?

     So why would Doug Flutie's nephew, Billy Flutie Jr., accept a scholarship to BC and literally carry the weight of the name on his back? "I'll always have that pressure of the Flutie name," he says. "But I feel I can create my own name.

Good luck creating your own name buddy, especially if you are a kicker.  You might as well just change your name to Yudt.

Penn can't stop Chase Edmonds in loss to Fordham

BOX SCORE

NEW YORK -- Chase Edmonds ran for 152 yards, added 49 yards receiving, and scored four total touchdowns to help lead Fordham to a 31-17 win over Penn on Saturday.

Kevin Anderson threw for 231 yards and one TD and Austin Longi added 92 yards receiving for the Rams (2-1).

Edmonds scored three times in the first half and Fordham opened up a 24-10 lead at halftime.

Penn responded late in the third on an Alek Torgersen 2-yard plunge which cut the score to 24-17. The Quakers (0-2) had an opportunity to tie it late but were turned away on downs at the Fordham 27-yard line.

Edmonds added his fourth score on the ensuing drive to put the game out of reach.

Torgersen had 125 yards passing for Penn.

Fordham has won three straight in the series and is now 25-2 at home since 2012, third best in FCS during that time frame.

Tonight's Lineup: Jorge Alfaro catches, bats 8th vs. Mets

Jorge Alfaro is behind the plate for the Phillies tonight and bats eighth. Alfaro has appeared in just four games since being called up earlier this month, and has just one hit in 10 at-bats. 

Tommy Joseph is back in the lineup and batting fifth. Pete Mackanin has said that Ryan Howard would get a lot of playing time during the last few games, but it is Joseph who gets the start tonight. Joseph is batting just .154 against the Mets this season.
