Here are some significant comments from last years game preview by CC...


"Overall, the BC offense starts six seniors, and in general they are big, physical players with multiple years of experience in the program, and a lot of offseasons in a college weight room."

"...Boston College starts eight seniors on the defensive side of the ball alone."

So, I'm not sure what level of experience and talent they are backfilling with, and their roster card designations are a bit weird** so I am not 100% sure about who has eligibility or not, but it LOOKS like BC lost at least 15 starters from last year (one early entry that I know of on defense in cheevers), plus their OC and DC. So it could be a pretty long year for them.

Offense: OC, 4 of 5 starting OL, NFL TE, 3 of top 4 pass catchers
Defense: DC, 3 of 4 starting DL, 2 of 3 LBs, all 4 DBs

EDIT: looks like all 9 players listed last year as "SR" are NOT on the 2019 roster.

**my confusion stems from how the starters from last years game are listed on the TSL roster card, some of whom are labeled "SR" (9) and some "GR" (5). So I guess it's possible some of the SRs could still have a year of eligibility left? not sure. I might have to do a little more digging just to satisfy my own curiousity.
