DeFilippo: 'We can compete with anybody'

Boston College athletic director Gene DeFilippo joined Dennis & Callahan to talk about this weekend's game with Notre Dame and a number of other topics around college sports. On the issue of whether BC can compete for a national title in football, DeFilippo said, "If West Virginia can play for a national title and Georgia Tech can play for a national title as they did several years back, then we can too. I'm convinced that with 85 scholarships, we can find 25 student athletes a year that our kind of kids: that are smart, that are tough and that will work hard. They're out there. The last five years the team that's won the most games in the Atlantic Coast Conference is Virginia Tech and second is Boston College. The last eight times we've played them until this year they had won four and we've won four. We can compete with anybody."

 

DeFilippo acknowledged that Notre Dame week is different from other games. "There's an...

Just another day of controversy in the cycling world.

Billick on D&C: 'I'll take Tom Brady'

Brian Billick joined Dennis & Callahan for his weekly visit and was asked about Tom Brady's fourth quarter struggles on the road. "I'll take Tom Brady as my quarterback any time, any place, on the road in the fourth quarter and I'll beat you with whoever you got," Billick said. "Any time you look at a road record you got to look at: What was the circumstance, who were they playing, what was the circumstance of the team did they have to force the ball down the field." 

 

The Patriots will be tested on the road as Billick noted: "You look at New England's schedule, they're going to figure it out here pretty quick. You're talking about Miami, Baltimore, San Diego, Minnesota, Pittsburgh, Indy. That's ambitious to say the least."

Beckett says back wasn't an issue

CHICAGO -- Speaking after the Red Sox' 5-2 loss to the White Sox, Josh Beckett said that the back injury he had been sidelined with for almost two months wasn't a factor since he returned to the team's rotation on July 23. The pitcher finished off his 2010 season with a six-inning outing, in which he allowed four runs on 11 hits, giving up three runs in the seventh inning. 

 

"The back has been pretty good," said Beckett, who ends '10 at 6-6 with a 5.78 ERA.

 

"A lot of things are based on results. People say results don't really matter, but results matter. When it's all said and done, that's what you have."

 

Since returning from the disabled list, Beckett went 5-5 with a 4.94 ERA. In the season's final month, he made five starts, going 2-2 with a 4.50 ERA while pitching at least six innings in each of the outings. Asked if he was hoping to build off of the final few appearances,...
