CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. -- Boston College coach Jeff Jagodzinski said linebacker Brian Toal has a pinched nerve and should return to practice in a day or two.

Toal didn't play in Sunday's scrimmage and hasn't practiced since, but his injury doesn't sound like anything to be too concerned about.

I saw Toal walking around the stadium. He looked liked the kind of guy you'd want on your defense -- like he just rolled out of bed, grabbed a lunch pail and drove his CAT to work.

Other guys I ran into here were both coordinators -- Steve Logan and DC Frank Spaziani. They're both down-to-earth guys. Logan was eating what he deemed a lousy salad while he was breaking down film, and Spaziani popped in the media room to see if there was any food.

One of the smartest things Jagodzinski did when he was hired was bring Logan in and retain Spaziani.

I'll be back -- heading out to watch them coach.
