In-game comments post: Central Michigan

This is all the BC football you'll get for two weeks, so enjoy it. Can Spaz rally the troops again? Will CMU give us another scare? We will soon find out.


I will not be online during the game. Leave your thoughts and comments below.

Big difference b/t 5-4 and 6-3.

Go BC

BTW, what's the rule on using a win vs 1-AA for bowl eligibility again? Just curious. One every three yrs? It's not relevant since we're winning out...

Hope the team finally comes out strong and really smacks CMU around in this first quarter.

CT, every year teams get to apply one win against FCS competition towards bowl eligibility. Hence, we are one win away.

GO EAGLES!

Does anyone else think it was a mistake to put our defense on the field to start the game?

 
At 3:41 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

Dave's first few throws are always so bad.

 
At 3:41 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

What's the attendance? 18,000?

Are you kidding me, Shinskie?

 
At 3:53 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

Wow, this camera work is nauseating.

 
At 3:55 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

Should have been a flag on that pass.

 
At 3:55 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

Two possessions, two three-and-outs:
Montel: 2 carries, five yards
Dave: 1-4, 2 yards

 
At 4:00 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

How do you set your coverage ten yards downfield on 3rd and 6?

 
At 4:05 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

Now that was a beautiful pass!

Question: where is everyone today?

 
At 4:13 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

Our defense is going to get real tired if they can't get off the field and our offense continues to be so impotent.

 
At 4:22 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

This third-down play-calling has been great! You're going to run a one-yard route when you need to pick up three? Really?

 
At 4:23 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

Let's get this 1st down-not.

 
At 4:24 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

a lot of apathy today - if we lose, we have only ourselves to blame.

 
At 4:32 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

CMU is killing us - making us look very slow and ineffective.

 
At 4:36 PM, Blogger eagleinexile said...

I officially hate ESPNU and Comcast. The Channel is on my guide, but when I called to activate the Sports Pack, it still does not come in and there's no ESPN360 for this game, so I am listening to it via the internet and so far, I do not like what I hear. I think this is the team we all thought we would have all year.

 
At 4:36 PM, Blogger CT said...

Somebody tell the boys that the game has started.

Nothing like getting dominated by a Chippewa.

Home Shinskie looks like Road Shinskie.

That was the first play of the entire game where our players looked faster than theirs. Helps when you hit the receiver in stride, huh, Dave?

 
At 4:46 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

Finally! That drive was a nice relief from the overall meh-ness of this first half.

 
At 5:09 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

Let's take the 2nd half kickoff and drive for another score - would be nice.

 
At 5:13 PM, Blogger mmason said...

This time last week during the ND game there were like 175 posts AT the half--looks like Alumni Stadium isn't the only place without a crowd today...
We still have the cushion pass defense--pathetic without a pass rush. Some things never change.

Flave Deflave is doing it again--the running QB thing can really hurt us with the Cush. Atleast The Shinster is throwing the ball to more than 2 guys. But CMU has 14 first downs to our 7...
Let's hope the 2nd half has some evisdence of adjustments on both sides of the ball.
GO EAGLES!!!

 
At 5:15 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

Damn, Gunnell almost got decapitated.

 
At 5:16 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

Good lord! Shinskie overthrows his receiver on every deep ball. That's three times this game, twice to Larmond.

 
At 5:16 PM, Blogger mmason said...

GUNNY = MONEY.

 
At 5:16 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

WOOH! He didn't overthrow his receiver there! Uncle Dave!

 
At 5:17 PM, Blogger AO said...

I just can't believe how quiet Alumni is. I think this is a big difference between us and big program schools. Our student body seems to treat game day as a chore. So today when they're all hungover they just scratch going to the game. Where at a school like Florida party days like Halloween are all the more reason for everyone to get rowdy rowdy for the home game.

Rich Gunnell TD baby! Played a lot of basketball with that guy during my tenure at BC, he's got a nice stroke from 3ball land.

 
At 5:17 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

Damn, I think he was short. Definitely not a fumble, though.

 
At 5:19 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

Guess I was wrong! TD, baby!

 
At 5:19 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

That's what we're talking about.

 
At 5:20 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

He definitely was short. Pretty terrible call by the replay guy. Not nearly as bad as the missed call in the Iowa game today. Looks like BC has finally found its offensive rhythm now.

 
At 5:22 PM, Blogger CT said...

Bad throw followed by good throw.

Ah, freshmen.

 
At 5:31 PM, Blogger mmason said...

Love watchin' Montel catch a pass downfield--he just goes Ferrari on people.

 
At 5:47 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

We'll take it, but 7 would have been nice.

Don't go into prevent.

 
At 5:51 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

The D finally gets a pick. Though, if that pass had been more accurate, Fletcher wasn't covering anyone.

 
At 5:58 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

Scoreboard watching:

-Clemson pounded Coastal Carolina. Non-conference, so I don't care.
-FSU outlasted NC State in a shoot-out. NC State's defense is awful and FSU's isn't much better.
-Wake is up 6 on Miami halfway through the third. Go Canes!
-Duke is up 2 on UVa early in the 4th. I'm rooting for Duke as I want the Cavs to be thoroughly demoralized when we travel to Charlottesville.

 
At 5:59 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

And Wake just scored to extend their lead.

 
At 6:00 PM, Blogger eagleinexile said...

Well, the WEEI feed has gone tits-up, but if I go sit in my truck, I can listen to it on XM. Can anybody give a quick update?

 
At 6:02 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

Damn! ESPNU just died. I did want to watch the whole game.

 
At 6:05 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

Good job guys - let's score again on a long drive.

 
At 6:05 PM, Blogger eagleinexile said...

Did we knock Lefeavor out of the game?

 
At 6:06 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

Nah, they just took LeFevour out because they're down twenty in the fourth.

 
At 6:07 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

24 to 3 10:45 to go.

 
At 6:07 PM, Blogger Jim said...

Update, still 24-3, 10 mins left, BC on their own 40. Montel is looking strong today.

 
At 6:10 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

ball on the 45 - the hogs are working.

 
At 6:11 PM, Blogger eagleinexile said...

Thanks for the update. Jeez, you're down 3 TDs with 14 minutes left and you take out the best QB your school has ever had? Talk about lack of faith in your team. If this was us and we were giving up so early, I would be upset. 14 minutes is enough time, what bunch of quitters!

 
At 6:14 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

Drive stalled - Montel hurt a little bit.

CMU ball on the 20 - 5:40 o go.

 
At 6:16 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

Most of the fans who did show up are already gone back to their tailgate parties.

 
At 6:17 PM, Blogger mmason said...

It's Halloween, so "freaky" things can happen--How is it that Flave DeFave is out--any news? Is he hurt or is this surrender Dorothy, or "Don't Like This One? Hopw 'Bout This One?
YOOWWWWWW!!! Keuchkly just picked one for 6!!!
Beauty!

 
At 6:17 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

Touchdown Kuechly

 
At 6:21 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

Luke Kuechly is good.

 
At 6:21 PM, Blogger eagleinexile said...

Time to take Montel out, cannot risk him, besides McCluskie could use the exposure.

 
At 6:22 PM, Blogger mmason said...

Well, Happy Halloween! Quigley whifs the kick and then kicks it OB on the do-over...
It's turning into bad golf in the kicking game...
Go Eagles!!!

 
At 6:28 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

The real young guys gave one up - seconds to go - looks like a 21 point victory.

Go BC - take a well deserved rest.

 
At 6:30 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

VICTORY FORMATION! Nice win, guys. I can't believe we've played nine games before taking a bye, but they deserve it. Go Eagles!

 
At 6:31 PM, Blogger eagleinexile said...

Cheesy way to end the game, shows a little lack of character and maturity, or was the 2nd team D in there? Oh well, another W, and Bowl eligibility. I am secretly hoping for the Emerald Bowl, so I can go. I would prefer the Peach or Gator, but let's be realistic, those no-talent ass clown bowl coordinators won't pick us.

 
At 6:35 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

I swear I saw one guy whose name wasn't even on our roster - so yes, they gave some new players a chance at the end.

Go BC - get ready for Virginia - we need that one badly.

 
At 6:39 PM, Blogger CT said...

2nd team D gave up the last TD. No biggie.

Good 2nd half. CMU was much less...threatening on offense than I thought they'd be.

When that CMU guy dropped the sure TD pass early on the slant, you knew it was our day. They did drop some throws today...good for us.

3rd down pass rush wasn't great. On again-off again pass rush today still troubles.

Montel for President.

Now comes the fun part: it's do or die from here on out.

this game was just about identical to central florida last year. close at half, blowout at the end.

 
At 6:51 PM, Blogger Emil said...

Gotta say that the student section was
packed today even though the rest of the stadium wasn't. Thought we showed our spirit well and
realized this wasn't going to be a walk in the
park (though it was at the end).

This Monk goes very quick somewhere between invaders, dazzling more effective moments. Appearances fascinating moving, does sound just a little "meh" in some recoverable diablo 3 gold format. Also, each qualification does not provide with it a brand-new point. Every Diablo 3 courses leveling manuals has tiers to be reached that uncover energised ability slots.
As we enjoyed the clear blue pool and shady palm trees,buy diablo 3 gold thoughts of a beach in Mexico crossed our minds. It truly felt like an oasis amidst the chain motels and restaurants of the area.. First, the core technologies added to two different irons are stated as follows. Consistent, high ball speeds combine with stronger lofts (diablo gold long irons strengthened by 2, short irons by 1) to produce shots that fly 5 yards longer on average than Diablo Forgeds.
