anyone know if Raji from BC is related to the GB Packers Raji who also attended BC?...its not like its a common namme


according to his player profile on BC website: Corey is the middle of Mamie and Busari Raji, Sr.'s three children; his older brother, B.J., is a senior defensive tackle on the Boston College football team

i'm guessing they haven't updated it from last year, because i doubt that there's another bj raji on the football team this year.
edit: yup, just checked the current bc football roster and no raji. there's a ramella, a ramsey and a rossi, but no raji.

Wisconsin's win was obviously huge for the program, but Clemson is the reason why the ACC did not win the challenge again. There's absolutely zero excuse for blowing that lead, zero.

I guarantee if you polled the nation and asked: "Which is more likely to happen?" and had the options be A) Clemson blowing a 51-28 second half lead at home or B) Wisconsin beating Duke at home it would have been a landslide in favor of A. There's no excuse for Clemson's loss. It's not like Littlejohn Coliseum isn't an easy place to play. ACC teams struggle their each year.


You could say the same thing about Michigan blowing a home game vs an average BC team though......

Illinois is a very good team. They are young, and they will have their struggles and growing pains this season, but Weber as them back.

With how the rosters are balanced right now I see MSU and Illinois running the Big10 for the next few years.

Clemson dropped the ball. How the hell do you blow a 23 point lead at home?



Really? You're going to put this on Clemson Rodey?

Uhh, yes? I hope you're just trying to give me a hard time. Duke should have won, but they didn't blow a 51-28 lead at home. I'm pretty sure Clemson was the team that screwed it up for the ACC.

Boston College is a terrible match-up for Michigan, though... Michigan starts four guards and trying to match one of those weak saplings up on a guy Corey Raji won't get you anywhere. And it was seen that Raji took advantage of those match-ups. That proved to be the difference in that game.
Huge reason as to why I took Boston College to beat Michigan. No one on Michigan can match-up with Corey Raji or Joe Trapani.
Not like Michigan looks too good, either. They look to be pretty average...

I am. Looking at it from an in game perspective, yes Clemson should have finished the game out. But, since when has Clemson ever finished anything?? Looking at the challenge before the games today most people would have said Duke is a for sure win.

You've had a rough night though so I'll agree with you in the end. Blowing a 23 point lead is inexcusable. And, Bo Ryan is 123-10 at the KC, so in hindsight this was a much tougher game for Duke than most people thought beforehand.

I will say this though, as much as Clemson lost the challenge for the ACC, Wisconsin won the challenge for the Big Ten.
