Boston College Season Preview Led by their senior quarterback Chris Cane, Boston College had a good season last year with a record of 9-5 and a trip to the acc championship game and to the music city bowl. KEY LOSSES OFFENSE: Chris Crane-QB, Brandon Robinson-WR, Ryan Purvis-TE, Clif Ramsey-OG, Steve Aponavicius-K DEFENSE: Ron Brace-DT, B.J. Raji-DT, Robert Francois-LB, Brian Toal-LB, Kevin Akins-CB, Paul Anderson-SS OFFENSE - 7 ------RETURNING STARTERS------ DEFENSE - 7 Strength Offensive Line / Linebacker The big horses up front have traditionally been a staple in Boston, and only one starter departs. LB play has been the heart of the D. The LB position gets a huge piece of the puzzle back as ACC Defensive POY Mark Herzlich said he will stay for his senior year. weakness Quarterback / Defensive Tackle Florida native Dominique Davis represents the second time in as many years that BC will operate with youth at the helm. He will have to go through the learning curve again as opposing defenses test him. Big, experienced DTs are no longer available to stuff the middle.
