In-game comments post: Wake Forest

As I've been saying, I think we can still win a few more games...and it starts today. Harris is starting, Rettig is due and the D should be ready for Wake. Go BC! Leave your thoughts and comments during the game.

Price will make this a long game unless we stop him.

Charles said...

alumni looks EMPTY

mod10aeagle said...

As usual, BC is well prepared for the start of the game, not unlike the "fans" who are either still out in the parking lots or just not showing up.

Benjamin said...

If only the stands could be filled with us blog followers.

EL MIZ said...

alumni has always been slow to fill up. the team is 1-3 and hasn't played inspired all year.

lets talk about something that had been a positive but is now a glaring weakness -- our D line. what happened? same defensive staff in place for the last decade, why do we have 0 quality defensive linemen? there are 2 BC alum in the NFL who are d-lineman -- both were fist round picks and super bowl champs.

what is spaz's excuse for this?

Charles said...

bj raji isnt walking through that door.

we blitz an LB on one play, it got picked up no problem, their qb connected for a 20+ yard completion, and then donnie fletcher got flagged for a 15 yard personal foul.

catch the fever!

mod10aeagle said...

Why do we give their receivers an 8-yard cushion in the red zone? Crazy.

EL MIZ said...

andre williams -- that looked like a brutal knee injury.


montel looks great -- making good cuts, making defenders miss, getting extra yards. great to have him back, he's our best player.

EL MIZ said...

wow a nice wrinkle to the offense on that amidon run. montel made a great block to spring it.

montel best block of the game -- our O-line is just awful. couldn't block 1 guy and montel's screen goes for nothing.

seriously, what happened to the line play? what was a staple is now just so poor -- bad players, bad execution.

Benjamin said...

You can see what we were missing with Harris

EL MIZ said...

what was the andre williams update? my screen froze. apparently its an ankle injury?

eagleboston said...

Just returned from my son's playoff game (they lost 39-0). Looks like another close one with BC-Wake. How did Wake get their touchdown?

Charles said...

this effing team doesnt play defense.

god this sucks.

mmason said...

We don't tackle people like a well-coached D1 team should...this is just difficult to watch. Unacceptable.

Charles said...

unacceptable! how many times this game have we seen a defender make an arm tackle and miss? c'mon guys, wrap them up!!!

first touchdown was first drive of the game, their qb passed at will and they ran it in from like 2 yards out

EL MIZ said...

BC's defensive line: 4 offsides so far.

ever to excel! #firespaz

EL MIZ said...

if rettig takes a knee i'm turning the game off. if spaz doesn't want to win then i don't want to watch.

Benjamin said...

Good to know El miz is still watching

Galvin said...

I didn't think he'd make that FG

mmason said...

The old problems have been compounded by scary new ones--we still play way off their receivers--the 10 yard cushion is still there--our D line can't stop the run, we're not wrapping up, YAC's are killing us, our O-line is leaky on pass protect, the QB is inaccurate, wide,low heavy handed, (Shinskie looked better than this...ouch!) Montel is great, but blocks for himself cuz there's still no O-line push, and our WR's drop a lot of Rettig's few good throws. Keuchly is ever good, but a good pass rush with poor pass D is just torture to watch.

The OC play-calling is still a little too Tranq-esque, n'est-ce pas? Do we ever "go for it" on 4th'n short? Cajones, anyone?

Do people just get crazy at Alumni?
I can't imagine watching this"live" and not going bezerk in public...
Go Eaghles! Look Alive!

Danny Boy said...

The damn squirrel has seen more of the endzone than BC players have. And if I were Rettig, I'd transfer, if for no other reason than personal well being. Are we even sure the line is actually trying to protect him?

Galvin said...

Our o-line play is terrible. They are getting to him no matter how many they bring. Sean Devine has to go.

EL MIZ said...

scoreboard watch:

northwestern (with persa) is up 28-10 on the road at illiniois (4-0, ranked 23rd).

mmason said...

The squirrel clearly was actually on the team, but is now transferring and attempting to find his way out of Alumni Stadium without down field blocking.

Danny Boy said...

For the rest of the season, every team could exclusively throw bubble screens and we'd never adjust our approach. 2011 is spaztastic.

EL MIZ said...

spaz is still perplexed by the bubble screen

eagleboston said...

Don't fret gang. ATL predicted 31-27. There is still hope.

mmason said...

I sat through one of these Nationally Televised Embarrassments of Boston College Football in Notre Dame stadium in 1992. Atleast that was a thrashing from a highly ranked team (they were like 5th and we were #17 in the nation that day.) We lost 55-7, and Jerome Bettis ran through us like BC was melted buttah, but Coach Tom Coughlin was in his like 1st or 2nd year. (The next year Coughlin's well-coached Eagles beat ND and Lou Holtz and destroyed their little National Championship bid.

But THIS? This Game? To lose like this to Wake and just suck while we get blown away with a haphazard effort and poor execution and stupid coaching? The BC highlite is a 52 yard field goal? We're at Home?

This? This is a new, All Time Low...
I hope everyone at Alumni, including the squirrel, has a Designated Driver...Go Eagles! Make a Comeback and bring us back to life!

eagleboston said...

I'm having flashbacks to the 1995 season.

El Miz, you jinxed the Wildcats.

BCBCBC said...

I thought Rettig was supposed to be good. He has absolutely zero accuracy. The crappy OLine doesn't help and nor do the shlt we have at WR....but Rettig is not very good.

eagleboston said...

Super Mario Mustache trying to get everyone fired up on the sideline.

He's Spaztastic!

eagleboston said...

Is it possible that Quigley is the most effective player on the team?

mmason said...

Eagleboston, you are hilarious--thank's for the laugh in the midst of this debacle...Rettig just called for intentional grounding,@#$%. Got no pass protection or imagination, either.
What a joke...now the fans are booing.
Man, this is bad. Let's bring Shinskie in so they commentators can talk about how Old he is...whaddyasay?

eagleboston said...

Doesn't Quinton Porter still have some eligibility?

Benjamin said...

mmason said...

We scored!...We scored a TD! And Montel broke the all-time BC yardage record! (Hope he's OK cuz he's the only shot we got, and he brought us to within 8...Could there be a chance for the Chase to cut to the chase and win the case?)
Go Eagles! Make this happen!

eagleboston said...

Congrats to Montel. In the over 100 years of BC football, no one has gained more yards than Harris. What an incredible achievement! And to think he was the back-up of his recruiting class.

eagleboston said...

Classic Spaz. Burns a critical timeout in an extremely close game with 7 minutes left. We're gonna regret losing that timeout later.

mmason said...

Classic ineptitude...what, we can't go down the edge of the field and throw some passes short to the side lines? We get a procedure penalty in the red zone? We throw late to a deep outin the endzone? Using timeouts now?
Rettig...? Man, the kid needs to step up and he's way overdue.
How'bout some D?

eagleboston said...

How do you commit pass interference yet still allow the guy to catch the ball?

eagleboston said...

Great job defense! Way to step up when it counts!

eagleboston said...

BC 2011 Season. Time of death....2:52 in the 4th.

eagleboston said...

Crap, that is the first time ever that Reverse Karma has not worked. The gods are definitely aligned against us. The Super Mario Mustache is such a negative force for the Eagles.

EL MIZ said...

i still don't understand how that HB pass worked. the guy threw a wobbler, BC had 3 guys back.

BC 0-2 in ACC and 1-4 overall. who does spazzy throw under the bus this week?

EL MIZ said...

next 5 games:

at clemson
at VA Tech
at maryland
home vs. florida state thursday night game
at NC state

i expect to be 2-8 going into ND.

eagleboston said...

It took me 2 years and 3 games to jump on the anti-Spaz bandwagon. But I soon realized the error in my ways. How many more will join us this week?

eagleboston said...

Well, I'm going to head up to Ames and watch a real coach (Paul Rhoads) hopefully upset Texas tonight.

Bummed about BC, just bummed. 1995 redux.

Ted H said...

Eagle Boston there is nobody left on the Spaz bandwagon other than Gene D. You were the last one.
