I've held off on calling for Spaz's job for a variety of reasons. No longer. He needs to go. What's the point in keeping him? What are we building towards? What is he bringing to the table? The excuse makers can say BC's young or has a tough schedule or has had some bad luck with injuries, but none of that holds up to any scrutiny. We were beat by a young team with a sophomore QB from a private school that takes academics seriously. If Spaz is going 0-3 against Duke, Northwestern and Wake Forest at home, why are we even playing BCS-level football?
The defense -- Spaz's calling card -- is a shell of itself and is getting outsmarted each week.
For the 19th time in his tenure, BC has failed to score 20 or more points. Are we still blaming his guy Gary Tranquill for that? Or how about Kevin Rogers, who he ran off?
The players played hard. They deserve better. They deserve a coach with a plan, with some belief in them, who doesn't throw them under the bus, who can lead a staff, who can make them better, and most of all, who can manage a college football game.
I'll have second viewing thoughts and grades up late Sunday. I'll probably have more ranting on Spaz in between then and now. He wasn't given the job in 2006 for a reason and shouldn't have been given the job in 2009. Given his track record with football, I don't trust Gene Defilippo to handle this well, so maybe it is time others in the BC community take control of this situation.
