Many people may not know that Boston College s most embarrassing football defeat may have saved the lives of hundreds of Eagles fans.

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 the newly revised Tales from the Boston College Sideline a valuable resource as well as enjoyable history for any BC fan.
