Virginia's top rusher (and his 1.4 TDs per game) is out for this game. Not something you want going against BC's #1 rush defense and when your QB has thrown 13 INTs. Hopefully our secondary is able to fully take advantage of this.

GO EAGLES!!!!

Stands very empty

Mixed bag on the first drive. A couple nice throws and a few nice runs. Rettig showed nice rhythm on the two completions. However, poor pocket awareness on the sack. He stepped up into a pocket that was collapsing and right into the sack. Oh well. Did like the call to go deep even if the throw was poor.

How do you give a 5-yard cushion and still backpedal on 3rd-and-2? Man, the soft zone is annoying.

is the game on espn3? where are yall watching it?

 
At 12:17 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

The game is on ESPNU.

 
At 12:21 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Totally agree BCNorcal. Why give a 10 yard cushion on a 3rd and 2? These players need to be aware of down and distance. Oh well, at least the bend-don't- break boys held UVA to a field goal.

 
At 12:21 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

Defense does not look good

 
At 12:23 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

Whoa. Trickery

Failed trickery too great

 
At 12:33 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

Gosh I don't like our coaches. 3rd and goal from the 12 and it's a draw? Way to play for the win you flipping bums.

 
At 12:33 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

3- goal from 7, and they give to Harris. Stupid.

 
At 12:34 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

From 12. Even dumber

 
At 12:34 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

How many 3 rd and 11's has BC converted on the ground this year. I guess they were afraid Rettig would toss an INT.

 
At 12:37 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

I would have gone right back to Momah. He was being blatantly interfered on the 2nd down play but the play was out of bounds so they did not call it.

 
At 12:37 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

Spaz/Tranqq waits out quarter, settles for field goal..

Spanq ALReADY playing it safe

 
At 12:41 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

The "vibe" is not good for BC today.

 
At 12:47 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Terrible call against Herzy. He was blocked, in the back mind you, into the QB.

 
At 12:48 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

Not liking our D at all

 
At 12:48 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

Wow, the defense is playing terribly so far. No push up front, slack coverage, unlucky penalties. They're not atrocious in any one zone, but bad in all of them. Don't know how you adjust off that.

 
At 12:53 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

The D just got run over on that drive.

 
At 12:55 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

McGovern better make some adjustments. You cannot let UVA to get too far out in front of our anemic offense.

 
At 12:56 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

uVA is going to be gambling and aggressive all day. They can still be bowl eligible.

It will provide an interesting counterpart to the conservative Spanq

maybe UVA will start making some turn overs.

Very frustrating game to watch so far


Uuuuggggghhhhhh

 
At 12:58 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

BC is lifeless too. How is that possible on sr day?

 
At 1:01 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

Can't catch any breaks, can we?

 
At 1:02 PM, Blogger Benjamin said...

I was just about to say nothing seems to be bouncing our way today, literally. I thought Rettig's sack should have been a facemask. Defender looked like he ripped of the helmet.

 
At 1:06 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Rettig needs to learn to recognize the blitz and throw it away. Might also make sense to throw in a screen play.

Defense is allowing way, way too many yards on 1st down.

 
At 1:07 PM, Blogger Benjamin said...

Their O-line is just pushing around our D.

 
At 1:09 PM, Blogger Groundhog said...

UVA's O-line is absolutely manhandling us

 
At 1:13 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Great job Spanq. Make them re-kick and lose 3 yards

 
At 1:20 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

Holy! Did that just happen?! I thought freshman couldn't throw the ball because freshman can't throw the ball.

 
At 1:20 PM, Blogger Groundhog said...

nice catch in traffic for the 2-star frosh!

 
At 1:22 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

Kid can throw!

 
At 1:22 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Amidon!! Usually tossing into double coverage is a disaster. Tranquil, it's time to put on the big boy pants on Rettig. Whenever you let him open it up good things happen.

 
At 1:24 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

We r DUE

 
At 1:25 PM, Blogger Benjamin said...

Wow. I like London's spirit in going for it.

 
At 1:26 PM, Blogger Benjamin said...

And again. That ball is drawn to the sideline..

 
At 1:28 PM, Blogger Benjamin said...

Should have let the defender kept going and let the clock die.

 
At 1:29 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

Spaz Tranq AND McGovern must be fired.

 
At 1:34 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

Our D has yet to stop Verica. 3 drives of 78, 60, and 53. And 3 scores.


Our D can't stop UVA. Awful

Only time we stopped was when frosh was in for UVA

 
At 1:39 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

The BC defense gave up 15 first downs in the first half. 15!!!

 
At 1:58 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Shocker! They let Rettig throw from the endzone......on first down!

 
At 2:05 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

I'm a little nervous here. If UVA scores again, we may not catch them as our offense just can't put points on the board. I would really be livid if we lost our last home game on senior day with a bowl game on the line.

 
At 2:12 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

eB. It's is nerve racking and frustrating for sure today

 
At 2:12 PM, Blogger BCNorCal07 said...

Defense has been playing better since the break, but the offense has been pretty wretched this half.

 
At 2:19 PM, Blogger Benjamin said...

Why can't our guys seem to finish off tackles in the back field?!?

 
At 2:27 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Great drive by BC. Now that the defense is playing better, I'm breathing a little easier.

 
At 2:31 PM, Blogger Galvin said...

I don't have ESPNU, did Andre Williams break tackles for that long run?

 
At 2:32 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

Galvin. Not really . Just a big hole and he made a cut or two. Nothing fanct

 
At 2:34 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Anyone see who got hurt on defense the last series?

 
At 2:35 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

Harris down in pain.

Omg

 
At 2:36 PM, Blogger Galvin said...

holy shit i hope it's not serious

 
At 2:36 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

I see Spanq has already gone into the prevent offense in the 3rd. And just what we need - an injury to Harris and he is holding his knee.

 
At 2:39 PM, Blogger Benjamin said...

How can you say it's prevent offense when we have been running the ball successfully? Just because we're not throwing doesn't mean we're going into prevent offense.

 
At 2:41 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

It does seem that our OL is starting to dominate. Not quite prevent o yet

 
At 2:41 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Looks like he hyper-extended the knee. Hopefully, it is not serious.

 
At 2:42 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

Announcer: harris out for game

 
At 2:45 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

But perplexingly the dis now soft again

 
At 2:47 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

Herzy will not be denied. Pick

 
At 2:48 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

The MO of this coaching staff is to shut off the pass once they have a lead in the 3rd. I would like them to open it up a bit and let Rettig go for the kill. Then again, they have won 3 in a row so maybe I should not criticize this philosophy.

 
At 2:50 PM, Blogger Benjamin said...

There was Rettig going for the kill

 
At 2:55 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Well, don't listen to me. The ground game may be boring, but it reduces turnovers and burns the clock. They opened it up as I requested and they got burnt. That's why I'm not a coach. Gotta hold them to a field goal here.

 
At 2:57 PM, Blogger Benjamin said...

Our D line is just not closing today. Verica is shifty.

 
At 3:04 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

4:48 drive to run out the clock anyone?

 
At 3:06 PM, Blogger Dan said...

Running to kill the clock is a sound philosophy only if you move the chains. The last few weeks we have been so predictable with it that we eat up little to no clock. Gotta mix in a few throws to keep em honest if you want to kill the clock effectively.

Harris switched his number to 2 last year to be a "1-2 punch" with Haden.

A quick scan of the roster and it looks like no one took #1 after Haden left. Maybe Williams should switch his #34 in the offseason...

 
At 3:18 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Nail-biting time. Let's go D!!

 
At 3:19 PM, Blogger Galvin said...

god why is there always a nail biting time with us?? I swear I won't make it past 30

 
At 3:23 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

Victorym

Bowl eligible

 
At 3:24 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Whew!

 
At 3:26 PM, Blogger Galvin said...

nice, i'll take it
