In-game comments post: Maryland

"Must wins" are sort of out the window when you are 2-4 but both teams really need to turn things around this week. I hope BC is the one to turn the corner.


Because most of you will be watching the game online at ESPN3.com, feel free to pop over here during the game and leave a comment.


You can also join the discussion on the Eagle Insider message boards.


I will probably have a thought or two on twitter during the game.

Even the normally reliable SuperFans did not show for this game. Hopefully, they are just running late.

BCNorCal07 said...

Looks like Maryland also comes from the Nyquil school of playcalling.

BCNorCal07 said...

Wow, just a couple plays in and already it's clear that these announcers don't know what they're talking about. Awesome.

BCNorCal07 said...

Why is Momah still starting? Is he a good blocker? He brings very very little in the passing game.

Nick P. said...

Yeah, they think the defense is getting pressure by just rushing the front four. Yeah right. Also, just heard them say "Richmand Costanzo".

Nick P. said...

I'm so sick of the soft pass coverage.

BCNorCal07 said...

Really poor execution by the defense on that drive. Don't really know what else to say about that.

Nick P. said...

It looks like the team is asleep again today. What happened to the intensity they had last week?

mod34b said...

Not good so far

eagleboston said...

3 missed tackles on that drive killed us. Also, they are getting no pressure on the QB. He had all day on that 4th and 10 conversion.

Nick P. said...

Nice use of the full back. I haven't seen that all year.

Thomas said...

How many consecutive runs on first down can we call? Over/Under is 12.5

mod34b said...

Espn3 feels like some kind of delayed motion machine. Not great quality

BCNorCal07 said...

Yeah, the feed from ESPN3 is especially poor this week. Don't know what's going on.

Glad to see Montel getting some room to run. The line is definitely opening up some nice cut-back lanes for him. Also liked Rettig keeping it on the option, even if the play was called back by a penalty.

Nick P. said...

Yes, ESPN3 sucks...almost as bad as these announcers. They keep calling Spaz, Spazianno. I can understand getting some the names of the players wrong from time to time, but the head coach? Unacceptable.

Emil said...

I dont get espn3 here in Chile, but instead I'm enjoying the WZBC call. My buddy Zach Bright is doing the color!

Nick P. said...

Love seeing them go for it on 4th down and short!

Now only if they would do something other than run it up the middle.

Thomas said...

My espn3 feed is just as good as if i was watching it on tv... no lag, good quality, not choppy at all

BCNorCal07 said...

Finally! That was a very nice little play-call. Well done!

Nick P. said...

Nice play call for the TD. I think we could be hearing the Rettig to Swigert call a lot in the future.

It's fortunate that they had a long drive to get the D some rest. I bet they come out and force a three and out.

mod34b said...

Rettig got lucky with pass ... It was behind receiver. But I'll take 6

mod34b said...

Good D!!!

BCNorCal07 said...

Nice call, Nick! That was a very nice series from the D.

mod34b said...

Every commercial I must restart the game.. Anyone else have that problem

Nick P. said...

Lets hope the offense has another sustained drive. It would be nice if we could flip field position if we we don't score.

Nick P. said...

That sucked!

mod34b said...

Grrrrrrrr

mod34b said...

Sack!!!!

BCNorCal07 said...

Once again, none of the d-backs are closing on open receivers. Great job guys.

mod34b said...

F'ing soft D #%#%}*{*

Nick P. said...

Nice work by Holloway!

BCNorCal07 said...

Open receiver again on the TD. It may be a zone, guys, but you have to COVER the receivers. Three defenders covering no one with a wide-open receiver between them.

Nick P. said...

In our zone defense, that park of the field is always open. I think they ran that play three times on that drive alone. In the red zone, you'd think McGovern would switch up our defense somehow to take that option away. If I were Maryland, I would just run that play all day!

BCNorCal07 said...

Wow, Momah is absolutely useless in the passing game. That interception is all on Momah. Ball was on his hands and he reacted like he wasn't expecting the ball. I just feel bad for Chase.

blockparty said...

this is pathetic. nice job momah.

Nick P. said...

I don't understand why they don't put Phillips in the game.

mod34b said...

Fumble 6

Int.

Bad things are happening

Momah's stone hands led to pic

BCNorCal07 said...

I absolutely have no faith in this staff's ability to put the best players on the field. The QB situation has been beat to death, but Momah does not deserve to be starting. It also took LeGrande's absence for Noel to get on the field. Apparently, it helps having a safety who can play the ball in the air.

Nick P. said...

How many drops have we seen so far this year by the receivers. I missed Gunnell's sure hands.

campy said...

Oh well. Better luck next week.

mod34b said...

Oh boy.....

BCNorCal07 said...

Impossible to defend? Or is it just that our staff refuses to defend these short passes? Friedgen and Franklin (!!!) are coaching circles around our defense.

Nick P. said...

Okay, lets see a nice two minute drill resulting in a score. If we are going to come back in this game, we are going to need to grab the momentum going into the half.

BCNorCal07 said...

Well, at least Navy is dominating Notre Dame.

This team is just so poorly coached. It's pathetic.

mod34b said...

Second holding on pantale ...a te not ol. Mtr dumb announcer

Thomas said...

After MD called a timeout guaranteed run on 3rd and 8

Thomas said...

surprise! we'll just take a sack instead

BCNorCal07 said...

Well, I'm done with this game. I cannot blame the students for not showing up to watch this team. It's just depressing.

mod34b said...

Edge rush sack of lapham... Guy not quick enough.. Dquan bowers will eat him up

Nick P. said...

This is pathetic. How could we be so much worse this year than last?

Would firing Spaz send the program into a tailspin from which our program woundn't recover for years?

Eagle in Brighton said...

WTF

Eagle 1 said...

One step forward (last week), two steps back (this week). I'm beyond disgusted.

blockparty said...

can we throw it more than 15 yards just one time? please?

Eagle in Brighton said...

I'm a half-glass full kind of guy, but a day like today is pushing me closer to the "fire Spaz" bandwagon.

blockparty said...

alright, nevermind, dont throw it more than 15 yards.

Nick P. said...

I don't mind if Rettig throws pics as long as the offense is attempting to be aggressive. I really hate seeing this super conservative play calling. How is our freshman QB supposed to learn if we just run draw plays all day. This is a lost season. Put the ball in Chase's hands.

Eagle 1 said...

Nick P. said...
"This is a lost season. Put the ball in Chase's hands."

Could not agree more. Let this kid throw it as much as possible.

blist said...

Why am I wasting my life away watching two bad football teams?

Nick P. said...

What do you think Spaz it telling the players in the locker room? Is there a passionate halftime speech to get the team amped up for the remainder of the game, or do you think he's just ho humming/mumbling his way through it like he does every media interview?

Nick P. said...

We're only down by two scores. We can still come back and win this game.

mod34b said...

Wasn't it obvious to tell spinney to not fuck up the snap...been doing it all game...

bcmurph said...

thta snap was coming all game...

mod34b said...

Pssst, psssst. Over here

(whisper). Does Rettig stink?

mmason said...

TEAM SPEED, TEAM SPEED, TEAM SPEED...
BC IS SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO SLOW.
CAN'T COACH THAT...

ALWAYS BELIEVE IN BC...yeah,we can do that and must do that...but the Laws of Physics are worthy of some belief, too. And this team is a victim of Inertia like I've never seen before.

Go Eagles!

mod34b said...

Hope Davis is ok. Looks scary

CT said...

mmason, be careful, astute analysis like that will get you a dressing down...remember bc is as fast as they need to be. our wrs are dangerous. it's only tranquill that needs to change. nothing else. we have loads of talent.

the acc is pretty pathetic.

um, syracuse just beat wvu on the road and their defense looks pretty good.

are we all still thinking about six wins?

Nick P. said...

I wish we would run a dime defense just one time. If I were playing BC, I would throw into the soft zone or to the receiver who's being covered by a slower linebacker every time.

mod34b said...

The snarkist comes out of his cave

mod34b said...

Need a turnover!

CT said...

just my $.02.

i'm sure you'll find a reason to disagree.

other than being slow and unimaginative on offense, things look great.

CT said...

finally a little luck. we were owed.

bcmurph said...

let's steal this and move on from here...go Eagles

eagleboston said...

You won't believe how many people left in the 3rd. I'm still here and Alumni is getting electric!

blockparty said...

1 yard at home with the game on the line and you dont convert. unreal.

CT said...

wow. the offensive line strikes again.

this team is pretty brutal to watch. gaining yds is like pulling teeth.

at least our hockey team is fast.

Matt said...

It's obvious Tranquil has to go.

Who do you think the top candidates for a new offensive coordinator would be?

Let me know what you think Iron Eagles
