2010-2011 Season in Review: The Bright Spots

Alright, I finally got around to writing the last in the 2010-2011 Season in Review series. Obviously it was a rough year, so there were not plenty of bright spots, but here are the three biggest ones from the year.

3) CHASE RETTIG
No, he didn't have eye-popping numbers, but he showed flashes of greatness throughout his time as the starter. After being inserted for Dave Shinksie for the Notre Dame game, Rettig gave BC fans hope for the future. Although inconsistent at times, he showed great potential. Next year, with a new OC, I look for more growth for Rettig.

2) THE RUNNING BACK POSITION
So coming into the year, we all expected Montel to be a star. And he was. He was second in the ACC in rushing yards and averaged 4.6 yards per carry. But it was when Montel went down where we saw redshirt fresman Andre Williams, better known as Andre 3000 on this blog. In the Syracuse game, where Williams got his first start, he put on an epic performance, rushing for 185 yards on 42 carries. He also had a 30-yard touchdown run in the bowl game. Hopefully next year, both guys will be healthy and we have a little 2 headed monster in the running game.

1) LUKE KUECHLY
It was a historic season for Boy Wonder. He led the nation with 183 tackles. 183 TACKLES! He reached double digits in tackles every game this season, including a 21 tackle performance against Duke and 20 at NC State. Oh yeah, and he also had 3 interceptions. He is also just a sophomore. I repeat, he is also just a sophomore. We have him for 2 more years, which is great for us, and scares the hell out of the rest of the ACC.
