In-game comments post: Maryland

This is our last football game for a few weeks. It is also Spaz's chance to end the regular season on a high note. Let's go Eagles!


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

I haven't yet decided whether I'm going to watch this game in its entirety. Florida is my second team and they're on at the same time. The BC game is just so uninspiring. Mediocre team at awful team. Nothing at stake. Bleh. I guess I'll watch most of it.

NorCal,

That's the spirit, besides Tebow has played two uninspiring seasons since his Heisman. This Florida team is definitely living on the edge, a la Iowa, 'Bama will take them down, sorry. Also, I think as BC people we should root for FSU, as distasteful as that sounds, so that a) The SEC gets taken down a notch and b) enough FSU people rally around Bowden to bring him back so we can keep beating them.

BREAKING NEWS, ESPNU finally on Comcast's lineup in my area, it's been like the gulag around here all season, and the U likes to snap up BC games. At some point the pecking order of ACC TV coverage was explained and the U always gets like 2nd or 3rd pick, and we are usually available as JP likes to take one of the Southern schools.

I take it the Bowls will not select until after the title game, unless the lower bowls can come to some prearranged agreement? Anyone? Bueler?

Really? Not sure if you're going to watch? Sure, there is nothing major on the line for the BC game, but its easy being a fan when a team is good. Times like this are when the team needs its fan's support. Games like this are when we need to be loud for the defense.

In my mind a second team is a team you watch when the first team isn't playing. If the second team takes priority, it ceases to be a second team.

Is anyone else sick at the thought of NC State beating UNC, after UNC whipped up on us?

 
At 2:59 PM, Blogger blist said...

I can see not feeling compelled to watch BC-Md. - it's not the most compelling 'rivalry' game
(boy, wouldn't Syracuse have been a perfect fit for us in the ACC?). Still, this team has been so inconsistent, I'm curious to see how Uncle Dave plays. Next year, we could have a very good team, considering the D and Herzlich coming back. It'd be nice to not have to deal with a newbie QB again.

 
At 3:28 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

Thanks for the pep talk, guys. I'll probably watch most of the game, mostly to see if Shinskie can pull it together and not gift-wrap the ball to the defense. I'd love for him to re-gain the form he had earlier in the season, though I doubt we'll see that kind of performance before the bowl game. Go Eagles.

 
At 3:30 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

Wow, I'm glad I'm not a Maryland fan. How depressing it must be to know that Chris Turner is your offensive captain. Yikes.

 
At 3:36 PM, Blogger Walter said...

Game is on justintv if anyone does not have espnu, like me!

 
At 3:40 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

This team never starts the game with urgency. How uninspiring.

 
At 3:45 PM, Blogger ChrisB said...

Long drive for Md. Usual cushion...Very questioable Pass Int on first play. Oh well, held them to 3

 
At 3:46 PM, Blogger John said...

The announcers just referred to Shinskie as Uncle Dave. That's awesome.

 
At 3:48 PM, Blogger John said...

Run- Run- Pass.



Who would've guessed?!?!?

 
At 3:48 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

Good lord. Terrible play from Shinskie. How is there not a flat or underneath route called on that play? And how do you hold on to the ball that long?

 
At 3:48 PM, Blogger JohnQPublicSchool said...

Ugggghhhhhh....

SHINSKIE!!!!!!!!!!!!

 
At 3:50 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

LOOK at the empty stands at Maryland....wow..

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

Those empty seats are why I have to believe that Friedgen is on his way out. The Fridge has become very unpopular with the fan-base. I've even heard rumors of alumni that may be willing to pay the buy-out. And that isn't even talking about Franklin.

 
At 3:54 PM, Blogger JohnQPublicSchool said...

If BC were 2-9 I think Alumni would be lucky to look that good on Thanksgiving weekend.

 
At 3:55 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

good point JQP!

 
At 3:56 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

Okay, Dave. It's time to get over the early yips. I can't believe we're still dealing with this after the number of starts he's had.

 
At 3:57 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

That kid is fast! All Colin on that one!

 
At 3:57 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

LARMOND TD!!!

 
At 3:57 PM, Blogger John said...

B-E-A-UTIFUL!!!

 
At 3:58 PM, Blogger JohnQPublicSchool said...

SHINSKIE!!!!!!!!!!!!(larmond!!!)

 
At 4:00 PM, Blogger Jim said...

If you don't get ESPNU:

At 4:01 PM, Blogger Dan said...

WTF is so hard about saying Larmond's name?

ESPN U, 2, 360, Ocho non of them can say it.

LAR-MOND

Holy shit what did he just call Aponovicous?

 
At 4:03 PM, Blogger JohnQPublicSchool said...

Worst? Call? Ever?

 
At 4:04 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

ref is a knucklehead

announcers are too.

 
At 4:05 PM, Blogger Emil said...

http://www.justin.tv/jeepjeep

^^great find Jim..

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

A little hurry-up here? Interesting. Let's see what Dave does here. So far so good.

 
At 4:06 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

shin's got his groove back

 
At 4:10 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

i hate the repeated "Uncle Dave" comments

 
At 4:11 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

Awesome play-calling. We better be going for this from the 1.

 
At 4:11 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

APA -No-VOOOSH-Ness

 
At 4:11 PM, Blogger JohnQPublicSchool said...

Playaction's been working. Are we trying to get Aponavicius an All ACC spot?

 
At 4:11 PM, Blogger Dan said...

Since when does vi make a VOOO sound?

 
At 4:11 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

Lahmon? Aponavooshus?

Also, call the game a little more aggressively in the red-zone, you patzers.

 
At 4:12 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

I'm watching the game with my brother. He said, "Boy the defense did not come to play." I told him, "Nah, they do this every single game. They always have a first drive that looks like crap and then they tighten up for the rest of the game."

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

Apa na VOOO shis!

 
At 4:15 PM, Blogger ChrisB said...

Well, I really don't get Cherry's call earlier?!!? I do not fear the Turtle thus far

 
At 4:16 PM, Blogger Dan said...

With another 10-20 pounds of muscle, Keuchly is gonna be a freak

 
At 4:18 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

I love it when our defense decides not to cover the receivers on third down.

 
At 4:18 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

NC St beats UNC

UVA playing VT tough (evine winning)

BC.....needs some moxie

 
At 4:19 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

oops *even winning

 
At 4:20 PM, Blogger mmason said...

When are we going to have an option to just watch the game with crowd and field noise and no announcers? These ESPU dudes are as bad as our pass defense...

 
At 4:20 PM, Blogger Dan said...

"Live arm" maybe, but Jamar is staring down his receivers worse than Shinskie. I hope BC picks this kid off at least once.

 
At 4:21 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

Turner is doing his ALL-ACC impersonation against BC again...

 
At 4:22 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

wait...is that not turner???

 
At 4:23 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

Awesome defense is awesome! Wait, no it isn't. Damn, this offense is terrible and they just decide to not cover receivers or pursue to the outside. Honestly, that was a well-executed drive by Maryland against a defense that never takes chances. Coupled with our offense that doesn't take chances (see third and fourth and goal from the one) and, well, lack of excitement/leading.

 
At 4:24 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

I'm stunned. I thought BC would throttle this team. I know it is on the road, but c'mon.

 
At 4:25 PM, Blogger ChrisB said...

Maybe I do fear the Turtle if the cushion continues into the red zone all game....come on

 
At 4:25 PM, Blogger mmason said...

This is going to get ugly if McGovern maintains this delusional cushion pass D...Old Coach Ralph knows how to beat us when he sees a weakness like our soft coverage. Every game we've lost this year featured this brilliant strategy.

 
At 4:25 PM, Blogger Boyd said...

If Jamar throws those passes all day, we end up with 3 INTs.

 
At 4:28 PM, Blogger John said...

We're in a fight all day against this terrible team - what does that make us?

 
At 4:28 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

These announcers are terrible and so is the quality of the field. This coaching staff needs to get a little more aggressive and take some chances. We're just not a program that is going to out-talent many teams. Yes, we have some wonderful players that will play on Sundays. However, we won't have a defense talented enough to impose its will while sitting back in coverage or an offense that will just run over quality defenses.

Lucky break on the late-hit here.

 
At 4:29 PM, Blogger Boyd said...

ticky tack? he drilled him three yards out of bounds!

 
At 4:30 PM, Blogger ChrisB said...

Late hit out of bounds, dopey announcers

 
At 4:30 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

And yes it was a lucky break on the late hit, but guess what happens when you take chances and throw down-field? You force the defense to take chances and you get lucky sometimes.

 
At 4:31 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

Gunnell is making these drops a bad habit. He needs to help his quarterback out and make those catches when he's wide open.

 
At 4:31 PM, Blogger John said...

That would have been a TD!

 
At 4:31 PM, Blogger ChrisB said...

This is why Superfan is not a plus sometimes...

 
At 4:33 PM, Blogger John said...

A little out of Gunnell' reach - slight mis-throw by Uncle Dave.

 
At 4:34 PM, Blogger John said...

D - be aggressive.

 
At 4:34 PM, Blogger mmason said...

WHY do we have such a problem dumping off a pass to a TE on 3rd down and short? Who makes these jackass calls to pass to Gunnell when we all know the Shinskie ball is only good 1 out of ten times? It's an H1N1 play call.
Now the Terps will short pass us down the field again.

 
At 4:39 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

Great catch there by Larmond! Way to take it away from the defensive back.

 
At 4:39 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

Who knew that Larmond could actually catch. Wow.

 
At 4:39 PM, Blogger JohnQPublicSchool said...

Man, great play by Larmond, but Shinskie needs to keep checking down when their plays aren't there. (Shocker, I know)

 
At 4:40 PM, Blogger ChrisB said...

Larmond!! Awesome...

 
At 4:41 PM, Blogger Dan said...

Ok guys timeout let's get the play right, hand off to Montel.

 
At 4:42 PM, Blogger Dan said...

At least we faked out the camera guy.

 
At 4:42 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

Harris has been awesome so far, but someone is going to have spell him at some point. Do you think Isaac Johnson could carry the ball a little (he was a RB in high school)?

 
At 4:42 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

This comment has been removed by the author.

 
At 4:43 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

Wow, Dave is a tremendously inaccurate passer.

 
At 4:44 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

We're going to wear this team by the 3rd quarter.

 
At 4:44 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

Dave got lucky yet again. Good Lord.

 
At 4:44 PM, Blogger JohnQPublicSchool said...

Apahnavooscius is his "guy"!

 
At 4:45 PM, Blogger Dan said...

Shinskie knows he's allowed to run with the ball right??

God Dammit with Vooshus nonsense!!!

Listen to your coworker, dummy. He's saying Sid Vicious to give you the hint.

 
At 4:45 PM, Blogger ChrisB said...

He should have run...well, take the 3

 
At 4:47 PM, Blogger mmason said...

Shinskie's not getting play calls that he can perform. It's nuts that we can't get him short passes underneath to just move the ball. Play action, short pops to Montel, something realistic. These tipped balls of his have killed us in the last 4 games...
Somebody text that pinhead in the booth with the phonetic pronunciation of Sid's name...

 
At 4:48 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

Damik! Did anyone even block him?! Awesome play right there!

 
At 4:48 PM, Blogger Boyd said...

THAT is pursuit.

 
At 4:49 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

Back-to-back sacks! That is not something I would have predicted.

 
At 4:49 PM, Blogger mmason said...

SCAFE JUST CRUSHED that QB!!!
Whooah! Almost a double sack!

 
At 4:50 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

2d a "coverage" sack for sure

 
At 4:51 PM, Blogger Boyd said...

Pound Harris. Get the first downs. I"m terrified of the pick6 here....

Or screens, that's good too!

 
At 4:51 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

We got sacked the QB! We executed a screen! What the hell is going on here?!

 
At 4:52 PM, Blogger JohnQPublicSchool said...

Hey-0! Someone's listening to Mason.

 
At 4:52 PM, Blogger mmason said...

FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A SCREEN TO MONTEL!

 
At 4:52 PM, Blogger Walter said...

maryland is terrible, but it's not like we're crazygood this year (and did you see all those close games maryland's been in this year?). We're on the road, it's a sort of pointless game, I'm happy with how well they're doing. Do you remember the first 9 minutes of the last game?

They're doing great.

 
At 4:52 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Hmm, a screen to Harris....gets a ton of yards....why have we not used that play more this year?

 
At 4:53 PM, Blogger ChrisB said...

Larmond...again

 
At 4:53 PM, Blogger Boyd said...

Final timeout?? I thought Spaz lost his mind...but the announcers are just morons

 
At 4:53 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

We need six here.

 
At 4:54 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

Curious.

 
At 4:55 PM, Blogger John said...

We should be killing this team. Come on OC - give us some more. Wht would I think that? Gary Nyquill

 
At 4:55 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

finch still sick?

 
At 4:56 PM, Blogger Dan said...

If ever there were a day to try the screen to Jeff Smith again today looks like the day. Maryland is giving it away and Shinskie seems to have figured it out.

 
At 4:56 PM, Blogger John said...

Fake FG - Flutie for 6.

 
At 4:56 PM, Blogger ChrisB said...

4th and 4 take the points...we get the ball coming out...I can state the obvious also

 
At 4:57 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

We do get the ball after the half, so I guess we didn't *need* to press the issue on this drive. However, the lack of urgency in the red zone from the coaches continues to puzzle me.

And yes, Finch has been reported to still be ill.

 
At 4:58 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

Decent half, I guess. Glad to be winning at the break.

 
At 4:59 PM, Blogger Dan said...

Wow he actually said Sid Vicious and Apanavooshus in the same sentence. I give up. He is actually retarded.

 
At 5:00 PM, Blogger Jim said...

This announcer says Steve's nickname correctly and then butchers his name.

If his name was pronounced apanaVOOshess why on earth would his nickname be sid VIcious?

 
At 5:01 PM, Blogger mmason said...

This sucks. With 20 plus ticks on the clock and Spaz whimps out? Very disappointing message to send to the offense and the fans. 3 points when it should be 7--twice. Talk about a way to ruin the halftime margarita...
Go Eagles! Let's hope the coaches sing at a lower register in the 2nd half 'cuz this was pure castrati-ville.

 
At 5:03 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

Our play-callers absolutely settled for three and they did it three times! Not two. Three times! Good gravy. If we'd only gotten two of those three (and not gotten a field goal on the other), the score would be 21-10, which juts feels better. If we'd gotten a field goal in addition, it would be 24-10, which is borderline dominance.

 
At 5:04 PM, Blogger John said...

Clemson stunk the joint out today - can't wait to beat them in Chestnut Hill next year. They actually started to believe they were a great team - they suck.

 
At 5:07 PM, Blogger ChrisB said...

They're still going to the ship...Spiller is the man

 
At 5:07 PM, Blogger John said...

Gary Nyquill = 3 points instead of 7 all year. He should retire for the third time.

 
At 5:08 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Anyone else having flashbacks to the UVA game?

 
At 5:10 PM, Blogger BlockParty said...

just keep giving the ball to montel. run the bazooka. and please for the love of god put the ball in the endzone.

 
At 5:20 PM, Blogger ChrisB said...

Hike the ball! you get 5 yards....

 
At 5:21 PM, Blogger mmason said...

That was almost a pic--and Montel was open in the middle.

 
At 5:21 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

Time for some play-action, Gary.

 
At 5:22 PM, Blogger mmason said...

These offensive calls just blow...

 
At 5:23 PM, Blogger mmason said...

That series just got saved--that pass was aweful...

 
At 5:24 PM, Blogger JohnQPublicSchool said...

Can we please not run everything to the outside. I know Montel's small, but he isn't a speed back.

 
At 5:26 PM, Blogger John said...

Who will replace Richman?

 
At 5:27 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

I ashamed to admit it, but those Snuggie ads are turning me on! Especially the grey-haired couger in the zebra Snuggie.

 
At 5:27 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

Now that was a lovely call, throw and catch. Nothing complicated there.

 
At 5:28 PM, Blogger Dan said...

Great throw and great pronunciation!!

 
At 5:29 PM, Blogger mmason said...

Is there a better PR piece this year for BC? Why not have the Drop Kick Murphies playing while Fr. Leahy hands out diplomas?

Is Montel the greatest gutty back in the ACC?

 
At 5:31 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

How about play action pass to the tight end?

 
At 5:31 PM, Blogger ChrisB said...

Stick it in; stop the bs...3rd dow now; do something

 
At 5:31 PM, Blogger John said...

Nyquill i an idiot.

 
At 5:32 PM, Blogger JohnQPublicSchool said...

Uncle Dave...


... For shame.


And the streak is over.

 
At 5:32 PM, Blogger Dan said...

Montel is the man, however, if Finch, Phifer or one of the recruits doesn't produce next year then this kind of usage will kill Montel.

 
At 5:33 PM, Blogger ChrisB said...

wow, just wow, fumble? bring on Sid...Missed one wow

 
At 5:33 PM, Blogger Dan said...

You're not sorry you mispronouncing clown.

 
At 5:33 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

Awful play-calling on this drive. The outside stretch run was called, what, 5 times and never run for positive yardage. Not once! And then, because the coaches don't want to take any chances until they don't have a choice, we come away with zero points. The tally: 4 red-zone trips, 3 field goals, no touchdowns. Gary Tranquill's offense: it's . . .

Sorry, I dozed off there.

 
At 5:34 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

the apa-no-voosh crap put the hex on Apa!

 
At 5:34 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

I think the perfection goal got way into Apo's head. We needed those points. We're letting Maryland hang in there when we should be up by 3 TD"s.

Oh well, you have to figure the Terp D is getting worn down.

 
At 5:34 PM, Blogger JohnQPublicSchool said...

Dan,
You're right. He isn't sorry. He came out of halftime apologizing for mispronouncing his name, yet continues to do so.

 
At 5:35 PM, Blogger John said...

4 times in scoring position = 3 field goals. Sorry Steve.

Impressive, Gary Nyquill. RETIRE.

 
At 5:35 PM, Blogger mmason said...

If our O Line is worth Dick Cheney they'll open a hole for Montel...but then, another really dumb playcall...
and then Dave drops the ball.
Another FG...I knew he'd miss that. It's bad OC karma. That was ATROOSHUS!!! Ooops...I'm channeling a
a TV announcer with a frontal lobotomy...

 
At 5:35 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

FSU is getting rocked. embarassing for the league

Clemson did not look good either

let's hope GTech takes care of biz

 
At 5:36 PM, Blogger CT said...

the red-zone play-calling is atrocious. thought the pass plays were nicely done...easy outs to wrs given a lot of cushion.


the stretch runs inside the 20...i mean, the field is short! the formations don't change.

montel deserves better. what a stud.

 
At 5:37 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

This game is looking more and more like BC will find some way to lose. You can't let a bad Maryland team hang in the game with you. On another note, outside of his kickoff return to begin the game, Spiller has bad today. Ruined his Heisman hopes.

 
At 5:38 PM, Blogger Dan said...

Excuse me, it's pronounced Mark Herzilootch

 
At 5:38 PM, Blogger CT said...

atrooshus...nice.

i'm going to find the announcer and staple his tongue to this lips.

aponavooooshus. what. an. idiot.

dude was bound to miss a chippy. oh wait, that's all he kicks. can't complain...everything with him is gravy.

 
At 5:38 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

Damik! Is this the first multi-sack game from a member of our defense this year?

 
At 5:39 PM, Blogger ChrisB said...

Scafe with another sack....

 
At 5:39 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

The entire ACC got embarrassed today. Florida is killing FSU. A very mediocre South Carolina team manhandled Clemson. Plus, a good (by ACC standards) UNC lost to a horrible NCST.

 
At 5:41 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

Do you say it Froderick, Froderick Frahnkensteen?

 
At 5:43 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

The only way that would have worked is you took the absolute value of that result. The stretch play is NOT WORKING in this half. Try something else, Gary.

 
At 5:44 PM, Blogger John said...

Fire Gary Nyquill. We could lose this game because of his play calling.

 
At 5:44 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

Damik is having a very good game.

 
At 5:45 PM, Blogger Dan said...

Hey remember when the screen passes were working? Yea that was awesome.

 
At 5:45 PM, Blogger mmason said...

Okay...is there not a kind of Ground Hog Day redundancy to our offensive scheme today? Is Bill Murray calling this game? Am I just seeing a constant deja vu play after play because we seem to just make this game more difficult than it should be?

That's the fifth time we've been run out on 3rd and short to the sideline...

I gotta think our OC's are clueless.
Where are the screns to Montel or Pantale?
Why doesn't Dave just run the damn ball? WTFFFFFF?

 
At 5:45 PM, Blogger mod10aeagle said...

Was BC's 3rd and 2 play designed to go outside or did Montel do that on his own? I just can't believe they would call that play when they've lost about 20 yards the last ten times they've run it.

 
At 5:46 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

On the other hand, our pass defense is awful.

 
At 5:46 PM, Blogger BlockParty said...

mmason, make me a margarita.

 
At 5:47 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

mod10, it was a designed outside stretch run. The end of the line blocked to seal the edge, not to create a come-back lane. That play has not worked once this half, yet they've run it at least a half dozen times.

 
At 5:48 PM, Blogger John said...

This game is scaring me, Gary - thanks for building the 6 point cushion.

 
At 5:48 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

MMason, make that 2.

 
At 5:50 PM, Blogger John said...

Let's start the "let Gary go" campaign now - the guy has to go.

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

Oh, good Christmas gift idea. My wife would love a strap perfect!

 
At 5:51 PM, Blogger mmason said...

Mod 10--you nailed it. It'unbelievable...And then we let these guys get into BC territory...
Guys, I'll have a triple for all of you!

 
At 5:52 PM, Blogger Dan said...

Keuchly kill!!

I'd like to thank the Dave Methusela Band...

 
At 5:53 PM, Blogger JohnQPublicSchool said...

Man, if Kuechly were a safety in high school, imagine being a 17 year old wide receiver going across the middle? Yikes.

 
At 5:53 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

Nice stop by the D, there. Scafe at the center of it again! He's having a very good game.

Now let's see how Tranquill screws it up this time.

 
At 5:54 PM, Blogger John said...

McLaughlin - we'll miss you. Great BC player!

 
At 5:54 PM, Blogger Dan said...

Holy Shit Gary's awake!!

 
At 5:55 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

First heads-up play in a long time by Shinskie there. And we got a first down on this drive? What?

 
At 5:56 PM, Blogger JohnQPublicSchool said...

Needs to step up in the pocket.

 
At 5:56 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

And a middle run? I thought Gary forgot about those.

 
At 5:56 PM, Blogger mmason said...

Shin takes one for the team...but that pass was scary.
Look at Montel be The Man!!!

 
At 5:56 PM, Blogger Dan said...

Uncle Dave and Poppa Tranqs

 
At 5:58 PM, Blogger mmason said...

I'm ok with that playcall so long as this in two down territory.

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

OH GODDAMN THIS F-ING SQUEEZE! You have to be kidding me! THAT PLAY DOESN'T WORK! GET OVER IT! Gary is really trying to lose us this game.

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

Okay, well, that playcall I'm not as okay with.

Actually, that's about as frustrating as it gets. Just basically ran the same play that got stopped for no gain.

out of curiosity...

are people entertained by our brand of football?

im not questioning anyone's fan-hood. ill watch bc any day, regardless of the score or opponent as im sure all of you would too.

just curious.

Harris will need a whirlpool and a massage.

Fire Gary Nyquill - he's not up to the task.

What an embarrassment - He's making you look bad, Spaz - get rid of the bum.

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

WTF? Again? Tranq is done. Spaz is dead to me for letting this nonsense continue to happen.

 
At 6:00 PM, Blogger ChrisB said...

Again, Sid's range screws things up...

 
At 6:00 PM, Blogger Dan said...

I don't think Poppa Tranq's actually called that.They thought he was signaling "Go for the throat." but he was just choking on a butterscotch.

 
At 6:01 PM, Blogger mmason said...

Well--That was surely inspired play calling by Gary-Wan-Kanobi...

a stretch run on 4th down...brilliant.

somebody wake up our OC.

and fire him.

 
At 6:01 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Inexcusable!! Shit-quill calls 2 straight sweeps when that play has been slammed all game. I hope Spaz has the cajones to fire this guy.

 
At 6:02 PM, Blogger John said...

Our brand of football is awful under Gary NyQuill.

 
At 6:02 PM, Blogger Dan said...

Why don't we run McCluskey up the middle in short yardage anymore? He used to be a bull in those situations

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

No, I am not entertained by our brand of football. This coaching staff plays to not lose, rarely to win. That was a gutsy (and correct) decision to go for it, but the play-call was horrid. We do have talent, but our coaches refuse to let that talent loose. That's how you end up running 15 more plays than your opponent, but only six more points.

Like you, though, I will watch this team no matter how they play.

gary is setting up the bootleg with all those stretch runs...for san francisco.

i have to keep reminding myself this is a 2-win Md. team...

 
At 6:03 PM, Blogger John said...

Defense is worn out as usual.

 
At 6:04 PM, Blogger Ryan said...

No, it wasn't a gutsy playcall. That's our default 4th down go for it because its inexcusable to punt from the 30 and we don't have any kicker range. The coaching staff gets no credit for that, and even less for the horrific stretch call.

 
At 6:05 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

A 47-yarder is a gimme for very few college kickers. And this is the same coaching staff that has punted several times inside the 40. Gutsy probably wasn't the right word, just like the play-call wasn't right.

 
At 6:05 PM, Blogger Boyd said...

No, Gunnell did not HAVE to fair catch that.

 
At 6:07 PM, Blogger CT said...

like our "brand" of football?

what "brand" is that?

we've got a freshman QB rarely on target.

we've got a stud rb who's our best player.

we've got no pass rush.

we've got a pretty good secondary that looks worse b/c there's no pass rush.

we have a kickoff returner that seems afraid of contact.

we have a punt returner who fair catches too much.

we've got a stud mlb.

we've got a conservative coach with a conservative oc.

what a brand.

i'm enertained, though. if high blood pressure is enertainment.

 
At 6:08 PM, Blogger BlockParty said...

how many times since the northeastern game has gunnell run back a punt? under five? very frustrating.

 
At 6:09 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

I am not a Jags fan, but I loved when he would pull out the fake FG's and fake punts. I don't think Spaz has that mentality and he seems to be winning by playing it close the vest. But a little excitement would not hurt.

 
At 6:09 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

Odds on a stretch-run to the near-side of the field? Even?

 
At 6:09 PM, Blogger mmason said...

We're lucky to be playing a Div. III version of the Terps...
They're 2-9 and we make them look threatening...
We need some cujones football, w/ or w/o the lime right now. Where's the imagination and the intelligence these guys get paid to execute?

We're making Montel carry the team without ammunition.

Throw the ball to him!!!

Hit the TE!! Make sone friggin' noise!!

 
At 6:11 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

Great catch by Pantale! First down stretch run?

Our coaches seem to think that field position is as good as scoring, a strategy that will get you few upsets or easy wins.

 
At 6:11 PM, Blogger Dan said...

Would they shut the F up about Montel's durability, they've already jinxed one good thing for us tonight.

 
At 6:13 PM, Blogger BlockParty said...

montel's approaching 40 carries. at least its the last game of the regular season.

 
At 6:13 PM, Blogger mmason said...

PANTALE HAS SERIOUS SKILLS. Why does he not get the ball mo' often.

Holding calls and double fouls!! I love this!!

That's Johnny Lojaks's kid who couldn't get in to ND where his dad was an All-American. How dumb is ND??

 
At 6:14 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

Catch the damn ball!

 
At 6:14 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

That's the Colin Larmond, Jr. we all know.

 
At 6:14 PM, Blogger Dan said...

Jesus Luhmond!!!

 
At 6:15 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Well, we can't blame Tranq for that series. Terrible drop by Larmond.

As usual, this game is coming down to our defense.

One last stand guys!

 
At 6:15 PM, Blogger Boyd said...

Colin, Dave doesn't throw with that kind of accuracy very often. You sorta need to catch that.
