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

BCNorCal07 said...

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.

BCNorCal07 said...

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

Defensive Cyborgs said...

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

BCNorCal07 said...

The game is on ESPNU.

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.

mod34b said...

Defense does not look good

mod34b said...

Whoa. Trickery

Failed trickery too great

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.

mod34b said...

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

mod34b said...

From 12. Even dumber

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.

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.

mod34b said...

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

Spanq ALReADY playing it safe

mod34b said...

The "vibe" is not good for BC today.

eagleboston said...

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

mod34b said...

Not liking our D at all

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.

BCNorCal07 said...

The D just got run over on that drive.

eagleboston said...

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

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

mod34b said...

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

BCNorCal07 said...

Can't catch any breaks, can we?

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.

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.

Benjamin said...

Their O-line is just pushing around our D.

Groundhog said...

UVA's O-line is absolutely manhandling us

eagleboston said...

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

BCNorCal07 said...

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

Groundhog said...

nice catch in traffic for the 2-star frosh!

mod34b said...

Kid can throw!

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.

mod34b said...

We r DUE

Benjamin said...

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

Benjamin said...

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

Benjamin said...

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

mod34b said...

Spaz Tranq AND McGovern must be fired.

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

eagleboston said...

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

eagleboston said...

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

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.

mod34b said...

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

BCNorCal07 said...

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

Benjamin said...

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

eagleboston said...

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

Galvin said...

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

mod34b said...

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

eagleboston said...

Anyone see who got hurt on defense the last series?

mod34b said...

Harris down in pain.

Omg

Galvin said...

holy shit i hope it's not serious

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.

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.

mod34b said...

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

eagleboston said...

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

mod34b said...

Announcer: harris out for game

mod34b said...

But perplexingly the dis now soft again

mod34b said...

Herzy will not be denied. Pick

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.

Benjamin said...

There was Rettig going for the kill

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.

Benjamin said...

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

eagleboston said...

4:48 drive to run out the clock anyone?

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...

eagleboston said...

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

Galvin said...

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

mod34b said...

Victorym

Bowl eligible

eagleboston said...

Whew!

Galvin said...

nice, i'll take it
