In-game comments post: Miami

This will be our last taste of BC football until the Spring Game, so let's enjoy it. Is it the final game for Kuechly? Or Spaz? We won't know for a at least a few days. But both questions add a bit of intrigue to the game. Leave your comments and thoughts below.

What a gut wrenching season!

Spaz: "What kind of crazy play was THAT?!"

JBQ: At least it has united all of us in the BC blogosphere.

Can't believe we can't convert and score to answer Miami's big TD. More "up the middle" crash and a cloud of lost from the echoes of Tranquil ground game. Some things never change. Conservative, sluggish and unimaginative. We should bash these guys and mix it up. Throw on 2nd, screens and Swigert deep.

Well, I can't criticize Spaz for going for it there. I can blast him for his horrible record inside the redzone this season.

 
At 4:38 PM, Blogger EL MIZ said...

can't criticize for going for it, but the play call was terrible. ATL's been saying it all week: D's know bordner is a runner.

 
At 4:42 PM, Blogger Mario Rigatoni said...

Is he though? Is he a "runner"? He sucks.

Rettig throws a terrible ball and has a "happy feet panic mode" that just telegraphs fear & confusion...We truly never knew how lucky we were to have Chris Crane--even Shinskie was better than this...

 
At 4:49 PM, Blogger Mario Rigatoni said...

no timeout obviously. Fuck you Spaz.

 
At 4:49 PM, Blogger EL MIZ said...

why no timeout here???????? spaz is f-ing awful

 
At 4:50 PM, Blogger John said...

Dave S is not better than our current QB!

 
At 4:52 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Frustrating half. We completely dominated and yet go into the locker room down 4. One gets the feeling if Miami scores again, we may not be able to catch-up.

 
At 4:54 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

Mmason, I suppose sayingRettig has 'happy feet' might feel hip and/or kewl to say, but you are wrong. Rettig is having a very good half. Don't believe every catch phrase u read on blogs

 
At 4:56 PM, Blogger WI_Eagle said...

Total coward for not calling timeout!!!!! A pee wee coach would know to call timeout there

 
At 4:59 PM, Blogger Benjamin said...

I'm going to echo mod's comments. Rettig is looking good today. His unease with the collapsing pocket is the product of o-line this season.

 
At 5:07 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

I believe Rettig is 8-10 for 100 yards. Also, they had 12 first downs, which demonstrates they are sustaining drives. They had the ball 21 minutes to 9. This is perhaps the best offensive display for BC this season. Which is why ii is so frustrating that they don't have more points to show for it.

How many TD passes did Shinskie throw his first year? 15 tds, with an efficiency rating of 118. Rettig, this year, has 11 td passes, and a 106 efficiency rate. I'm just sayin'... Rettig has not exactly done the job we all hoped for, and he does throw a lousy deep ball, panics and can't seem to make it happen in the red zone. Before we dis Uncle Dave, the numbers indicate he did "less badly" than one might assume. Yes, his O line was better than this one, and he did not inspire greatness--but he won more games and threw more TD's...so...? Just an end of season after-thought.

Welcome to college football Chase. Is he finally coming into his own and is this a harbinger for a big junior year?

 
At 5:20 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Keep in mind, he is only a sophomore. Since he started so young, it seems like he has been here forever, but Ryan did not even start all of his games sophomore year. No way am I equating Rettig with Ryan, but I do think Rettig has potential.

 
At 5:26 PM, Blogger mmason said...

Oh, and mod--I don't "read blogs" or get caught up in the trifles that you throw down every week, either... but the Rettig record is a public one--and I've seen 40 years of good QB's and not so,--Chase is "not so." See, he doesn't set his feet well because he's fearful of disaster--and getting ready to run in any direction if threatened. Check him out--check the completion rates, too. He throws inaccurately because he's not set. Chase's Passes go in the dirt, overhead and outta reach, wide left and right.How does that happen, O Sage One? How long does he get the rookie dispensation?
Right now, our running game is what's moving BC. Not the QB.

Spaz with his crappy game management again. Blows a timeout that may be critical in such a close game.

 
At 5:28 PM, Blogger Benjamin said...

Shinskie also a much better o-line protecting him. And Gunnell to throw to.

 
At 5:30 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

Mmason, we are just talking about today

/mason back pedals away by focusing on something other than today.

 
At 5:35 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

Mmason think positive! Retting is improving.. Maybe you can communicate that growth in your usual hipster doofus voice. :-). And don't take this too seriously, I do enjoy many of your posts!

 
At 5:42 PM, Blogger Mario Rigatoni said...

Yes, bring in Bordner, you innovator you.

FUCK YOU SPAZ.

 
At 5:43 PM, Blogger John said...

Spaz is a moron! Border sucks!

 
At 5:44 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

I can't stand Spaz! You have all of the momentum and then you bring in a qb who they know is going to run the ball and he fumbles. Plus, they burned a valuable timeout. Spaz, you suck!!

 
At 5:46 PM, Blogger About Five said...

Bordner? Other than Spaz is a poor couch, how do you take out Retig?

You have to burn a timeout, I.e., unprepared. Looking dumb.

Then you get a fumble. How can you face the players with such idiocy?

 
At 5:47 PM, Blogger John said...

Please please please fire Spaz!!!!!!!

 
At 5:48 PM, Blogger EL MIZ said...

earth to spaz: the U knows bordner's gonna run. so does everyone else.

1st and Goal at MIA 2:
Josh Bordner rush for no gain, fumbled at the MiaFl 2.

 
At 5:48 PM, Blogger harrow said...

98 td td drive right here. Spasm should be fired now for this bordner shite.

 
At 5:49 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

I think it was a Brock call, not a Spaz call. Still bogus

 
At 5:51 PM, Blogger Mario Rigatoni said...

Fuck em both.

 
At 5:54 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Mod,

Spaz needs to exert some leadership and overrule such a horrible decision. The Bordner play worked the first couple of games, but the defenses have seen the film. They know he is only going to run, thus you cannot keep the defense off balance. That moronic decision may cost BC their first chance to beat Miami in 27 years!

 
At 5:55 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

Kuechly: play of the year. Wonderful

 
At 5:56 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

E/B. good point

 
At 5:57 PM, Blogger EL MIZ said...

lets see how spaz blows this one

 
At 5:58 PM, Blogger Mario Rigatoni said...

Goddamn....30 yd stiff arm.

He's gone after this season...I'd do the same thing.

 
At 5:59 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Spaz better give Luke some extra turkey as he may have saved his job with that INT.

 
At 6:04 PM, Blogger Benjamin said...

Spaz needs to convince Luke to come back for his job to be saved.

 
At 6:10 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Correction from an earlier post. We beat Miami in 2007, but if we hold on to win, it will be the first victory over the Hurricanes in Miami since Flutie to Phelan.

 
At 6:13 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Is Miami running out the clock?

 
At 6:20 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

How many times has BC failed to pick up one fricken yard this season?

 
At 6:20 PM, Blogger John said...

We are trying to blow this game with fumbles.

 
At 6:25 PM, Blogger Mario Rigatoni said...

Donnie!

 
At 6:36 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Another 1 yard pick up they failed to execute.

 
At 6:44 PM, Blogger John said...

Great win. Congrats guys. I hope that is the end of the Spaz era.

 
At 9:04 PM, Blogger dixieagle said...

Ditto, John.
