Many people do know that Boston College's most embarrassing football defeat may have saved the lives of hundreds of Eagles fans. They may also not know that Doug Flutie failed to see a wide-open receiver and instead heaved the ball to an apparently well covered Gerard Phelan to complete the "Miracle in Miami." The stories behind those little known facts and many more are contained in Tales from the Boston College Sideline, an anecdotal history of Boston College football. Author Reid Oslin, who served as Boston College's sports information director for nearly a quarter of a century, has collected scores of stories about the many accomplishments--and occasional downfalls--of the Boston College Eagles. Material from the University Archives, dozens of personal interviews, and the author's own up-close recollections will make Tales from the Boston College Sideline a valuable resource--as well as enjoyable history--for any BC fan.
