Congratulations to both these young men, the team and coaches. BU and staff can recruit, no doubt about it. Also the team plays very exciting, watching the offenses of North Carolina vs Miami and Ohio State vs Indiana was a major snooze fest. Great things coming.

This is great, but also really dumb on the B1G part. It's probably never happened before cause the B1G has never been this dumb before. If Giorgi is the B1G Player of the week, then he's also the B1G freshman player of the week. Unless there is some rule that you cannot be player of the week and freshmen of the week.

I mean whatever. I'll take it.
