After watching tapes of his team's scrimmage, Boston College football coach Jeff Jagodzinski decided to only fine tune things, making no changes in the starting lineups. He did have to adjust to the persistent series of showers which have plagued training camp, switching his practice schedules to avoid the predicted rain.

"I had to cut a few things out and so we could get some drills in,'' said Jagodzinski after the afternoon practice, which started and ended in the rain.

While the defense was still ahead of the offense, the speed factor the Eagles have was again evident as running backs Razzie Smith and Jeff Smith worked on kickoff returns.

"We've got more speed than we have in a long time,'' said Jagodzinski. "I feel good about where we are. I can't wait for the next scrimmage."

That will come Wednesday evening and Jagodzinski said it will be the same format as Saturday night, only longer.
