ODB MAILBAG 12/15!

Haven’t been following conference wide very closely, but it looks like BU could have over 1⁄2 of the recruiting class sign on the 20th. The big catch would be QB Gerry Bohanon. If he commits he will sign on the 20th. I think this is likely to happen. Part 2: It did, I mean do, […]
