Eagles Canâ€™t Fly the Coop for Patriot Love
Whether or not the Boston College fans were staying home to root on the history-making Patriots or they were lethargic in their lament of an â€˜inferiorâ€™ bowl game, the Eagles did not leave the nest.
Walking only half-way around the stadium it was more than evident that the Spartan fans may end up outnumbering the Eagles by a solid two-to-one, if not three-to-one.Â The faces were donned in green, the hair was spiked straight North, and the sweet smell of Spartan victory was already lingering with the jerk chicken two hours before kick-off.
The overwhelming feeling around â€˜those in the knowâ€™ is that this same lack of interest by the fans in the game may be pervasive among the team members.Â Disappointment in the bowl selection, or non-selection as it were, and the sense that very few back home care about the game may be divisive and deciding factors in todayâ€™s game.
