GOLD AND BLACK ILLUSTRATED VOLUME 28, ISSUE 6 77 THREE THINGS 1 Quarterback Antho- ny Brown is still r e c o v e r i n g from a torn ACL sus- tained toward the end of last season. The Eagles start off the year with two easy games, against UMass and FCS Holy Cross, but then there's two Power 5 games — one on a short week against Wake Forest, before the Purdue game — in a row. Will Brown be ready to start the season or at least by P5 play? If not, can sophomore EJ Perry handle the workload? 2 Running back A.J. Dillon took the ACC by storm with 1,589 yards and 14 touchdowns despite only starting half the sea- son. He even had four games with over 190 yards. Will Dil- lon revert back to a mean? Or can he follow in the footsteps of Andre Williams and become a Heisman Trophy candidate? 3 Boston College's defense has seen a slew of mid- to late- round draftees over the last several seasons, maintaining a run in the top-30 statistically on a national level. Harold Landry should be replaced by Zach Allen and Co. on the defensive line, but the Eagles lack clear successors for drafted cornerbacks Kamrin Moore and Isaac Yiadom.
