Thadd Smith was almost certain he would return from Boston College last weekend with a scholarship offer. And he had good reason to believe so. "Ever since [coach Steve Addazio] left Temple, he's been telling me to come up there," Smith said. The 5-foot-11, 170-pound junior at Cardinal O'Hara now lists the Eagles alongside Temple and Rutgers among his scholarship offers. Owls coaches visited Smith on O'Hara's campus after Addazio's departure and ensured him he remains on their radar, Smith said.

Quinn Smith scored a pair of goals and three-time defending champion Boston College beat Harvard, 4-1, in the Beanpot tournament on Monday night. Boston College (16-7-2) will be seeking its 18th title next Monday when it faces Northeastern, a 3-2 winner over Boston University in the opening game. NFL: An attorney for the agency that runs the home of the St. Louis Rams said it is unlikely it will implement the team's plan to upgrade the Edward Jones Dome. If not, the lease dome becomes year-to-year starting in March 2015, creating the possibility of the team leaving St. Louis.

Sources have confirmed a CoachingSearch.com report that former Boston College assistant Mike Siravo will become Temple's next linebackers coach.

During the fall, Ray Lawry was racing through defenses as a junior running back for Kingsway. Now, he's rising up the ranks of the top recruits in the class of 2014. Lawry, a 5-foot-9, 175-pound athlete who ran for 2,225 yards and led Kingsway to the South Jersey Group 4 final, has been offered a football scholarship by the University of Maryland. Maryland will join the Big Ten Conference, along with Rutgers, in 2014. Lawry also has been offered a scholarship by Temple. But a lot more offers could be on the way as Rutgers, Northwestern, Boston College, and Pitt visited Kingsway's football office this week.

Defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere, a player who may one day quarterback the Flyers' power play, scored a power-play goal as the United States cruised past Germany, 8-0, in the IIHF World Junior Championship tournament Thursday in Ufa, Russia. "I like what I see from him. He's very creative with the puck," said Ian Laperriere, the Flyers' director of player development. "I'm glad he's playing in this tournament because it's a chance to see how he responds. " It was the first game in the International Ice Hockey Federation tournament for the Americans, who will have a much tougher challenge Friday when they face Russia in a 9 a.m. game that will be televised by the NHL Network and streamed live on NHL.com.

No one on North Broad Street can be shocked that second-year Temple football coach Steve Addazio left vapor trails taking off for Boston College, grabbing the first job offered by a school from a BCS league. The New England native, a Connecticut boy, left Tuesday for the northern outpost of the Atlantic Coast Conference, a safer haven and presumably a more lucrative one. If Temple got an ACC invite, the school would take it in a heartbeat. You're supposed to blame Addazio for doing the same?

He replaces Frank Spaziani, who was fired after four seasons and 16 overall with the Eagles. He went 22-29, 2-10 this season, 1-7 in the Atlantic Coast Conference. "[Addazio's]
