Kelly supports a possible proposal to the NCAA that would split the college soccer season in two, making for a 25-game season spread over the fall and spring with conference championships decided in early May and the College Cup taking place in June. "I think that would be good for the student athlete," Kelly said of the plan, which was outlined by TheSoccerObserver.com over the summer. Those backing the plan say spreading the condensed season out gives players more time to recover from matches and believe the college game would get more visibility, especially the College Cup.

"Coach threw a lot at us but it is something we have been working on in camp," said Murphy. "If we can handle it, I think we can be successful so right now we are focused in and locked onto the game plan and our calls and our checks and all that. If we can master that and be focused we’ll be ready to go. As the quarterback you have to hold guys accountable for what they have to do and push guys and find ways to make them excel."

WSJ: Interesting Look At College Football Student Section Attendance

The decrease even at schools with entrenched football traditions and national championships stands in contrast to college football's overall popularity. Total turnout at home games of top-tier teams hit a record in 2013, while average attendance has slipped just 0.8% since 2009. The growing number of empty seats in student sections across the U.S. is a sign of soaring ticket prices, more lopsided games and fewer matchups against longtime rivals, and the proliferation of televised games that make it easier than ever for students to keep tailgating long after kickoff.

"We have a lot of youth at our skill positions and you would much rather have that than to flip it and have young inexperienced offensive linemen," Willis said. "You would rather have the older line than older skill-position players. "This offensive line knows what’s up and they know how to go out and win a game on Saturday. I know them and I know they will take care of me."

Boston College is our kinda-sorta biggest football rival and there's a Wikipedia page to prove it in case you're into things like that. Last year was a pretty fun deal to seal up bowl eligibility and anyone who's followed the Orange long enough will love to tell you how we ruined their plans to go to a BCS bowl game in their final Big East season in 2004. That led to Pitt losing to Utah. And us getting destroyed by Georgia Tech which led to the GERG era. So it goes. Oh, and they're plenty annoying in basketball to muster up some hate, too. And don't forget about the Orange Eagle Trophy this site and BC Interruption have going. It's pretty good to have this rivalry back, guys.

Senior forward Stephanie McCaffrey is a dynamic player on the soccer field. Her skills level is very high but it's her dedication this past year to fitness that could be a game changer. McCaffrey opened the season with a goal and assist in the win over Harvard in the season opener. The Eagles (1-1-0) are on their first two-game road trip of the season this weekend as the team plays at Jacksonville and at UNF. Prior to the team's departure, McCaffrey sat down to talk a bit about her final season at the Heights.
