In-game comments post: Notre Dame

Spaz can talk up how great this three loss Notre Dame team is. Vegas can have us as huge underdogs. In the end it doesn't matter. What I hope is that our players follow the example of past Eagles and play their hearts out.


And if Spaz plays not to lose, then it means we are one game closer to the end of his regime.


I will also be on twitter throughout the game.

Just saw the opening of College Gameday with the locker room speech by ISU coach Paul Rhoades. Gave me goose bumps. He has the passion and aggressiveness of Jags without the nuttiness. That is the type of coach BC needs.

C'mon Eagles, let's end the losing streak against ND and show them we are a long way from Fredo!

God help us... a lot! Go Eagles!

 
At 3:14 PM, Blogger mmason said...

Actually, ND is "Fredo",...if you know your Puzo. Their 1842 start makes them an older brother, surely. Georgetown, 1792, is more a "Sonny". We're more a "Michael" in at 1863, the younger, smarter little brother who outlives 'em all...with an Archangel Michael on campus to prove it. Unless, ND sees themselves as "Sonny",
hubris driven, cocky and hot-tempered and shot to pieces in a toll booth. (Don't think that's their self-image, however ironic it might seem.)

As for the Game--which will be difficult to watch without a manual entitled, "How to Survive a Football Massacre on National TV",and the elixir of choice that helps the medicine go down, I suggest a moratorium on "woe is us" whining--that means no more talk about GDF or Spaz getting fired for the next 24 hours. Otherwise we'll sound like little sister Connie in the Godfather--drunk, blameful and damn boring. It's time to cheer on Keuchly, hope our kids pop the Domers when they can and go down in defeat, if so be it, with class, guts and tenacious, fiery resolve. The rest is silence.
Let's Go Eagles! St.Michael, Give em Hell!

Pull out all of the plays you have been holding back all year, Coach Spaziani. Show some pride and respect for your employer.

We don't want Prevent Offense today.

Go BC.

ND has always made me barf.

I view them like a cousin who you suspect might have a touch of asperger's syndrome.

You try to be nice, try to introduce him to friends, try to be social. But try as you might, the weird cousin (ND) lacks that social link, lacks social grace. He just does not know how to act or , how to behave, and keeps saying and doing embarrassing things.

The ND arrogance is always present. Never even a thimble full of humility. Humility simply does not exist in the ND mind

To paraphrase Michael Savage "ND Arrogance is a mental disorder"

Go BC. Stand proud and give it your all for 60 minutes

Let's go EAGLES!!!

 
At 4:11 PM, Blogger WI_Eagle said...

I'm already gagging about the announcer's praise for Michael Floyd....everyone knows the only reason he is good is that ND puts a Bud Light and car keys in the endzone for him.

 
At 4:14 PM, Blogger Galvin said...

That Fletcher penalty looked like bullshit

At 4:15 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

That was an absolute asinine penalty by Fletcher. You cannot give this team 15 free yards. The lack of discipline pisses me off to no end.

 
At 4:16 PM, Blogger Galvin said...

Well, shit that was easy

 
At 4:18 PM, Blogger Benjamin said...

GO EAGLES! We are BC.

 
At 4:20 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

I hate losing to these pseudo-leprechauns.

 
At 4:20 PM, Blogger Colin said...

Fire up the blender mmason, I'll need some margaritas to survive this NBC sponsored ND slurp-fest.

 
At 4:21 PM, Blogger BlockParty said...

rettig lets get this rolling. come on kid.

 
At 4:23 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Shoot, I don't think Swigert caught that but hopefully it is not enough to overturn the call.

 
At 4:28 PM, Blogger Galvin said...

What was that defense on Floyd?

 
At 4:28 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

How in the hell was Floyd that wide open?

 
At 4:29 PM, Blogger Galvin said...

I love Kuechly, thank god for him

 
At 4:29 PM, Blogger BlockParty said...

who is #37? the safety? hes so gd slowwww!

 
At 4:30 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Oh, man Fletcher, we needed that INT.

 
At 4:31 PM, Blogger Galvin said...

Oh Fletcher, make that catch! We could really use ND turnovers

 
At 4:32 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

37 is Hampton Hughes, converted from wide receiver due to Spaz chasing all of the safeties off the team.

 
At 4:33 PM, Blogger Galvin said...

We're not getting any real pressure on the QB, but Ricci is pushing his man forward at least

 
At 4:34 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

January 13th, 2009....a day that will live in infamy.

 
At 4:36 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

What happened to Finch? Is he hurt now?

 
At 4:37 PM, Blogger Galvin said...

Ok Kimble, not bad. Anyone see the huge grin on Louis Nix's picture for the Notre Dame defense? hahaha

 
At 4:45 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Nice defensive stand. Great job Eagles!

 
At 4:46 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

I love Peggy! Great customer service rep.

 
At 4:47 PM, Blogger Benjamin said...

Especially when Peggy makes Lou Holtz look like a fool.

 
At 4:50 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

This is not a good move - Bordner is a deer in the headlights. Terrible throw.

 
At 4:50 PM, Blogger BlockParty said...

"a college quarterback at this level needs to make that throw."

chase hasnt been making that throw all year.

 
At 4:50 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

Well Kimble has been running right through the ND defense so what does BC do in its last 5 plays: not give it to Kimble. 3 pass plays, 1 attempted pass play, and 1 QB draw. The coaching ineptitude is infuriating.

 
At 4:51 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

"A college quarterback at this level has to make that throw."

That is an understatement. This offense is horrific.

 
At 4:52 PM, Blogger mmason said...

Rettig is on schedule for that kind of inaccurate, alley-oop pass to the Jolly Green Giant. WTW?

I need a BC 1st down for the first ceremonial Slicing of the Limes ritual. Must Happen. Let's Go Eagles!

 
At 4:52 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

Bordner isn't ready for this stage yet and the HC is putting him in a bad position is all I mean.

When he was on the sideline before the game, his eyes were twice as wide as normal.

 
At 4:54 PM, Blogger mmason said...

What a great place for a BC Takeaway...

 
At 4:56 PM, Blogger John said...

BC offense = pathetic

Will we score 10 points by the end of this thing?

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

Afraid not, John.

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

Jonas averages 7 yards per carry. If I were an ND fan, I would wonder why he doesn't get the rock more.

 
At 5:00 PM, Blogger BlockParty said...

if we want to be in this game, we NEED to intercept these passes! Two dropped INTs already!

 
At 5:02 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

Where the hell is Kimble???

 
At 5:05 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

where the hell is Kimble's blocker?

 
At 5:06 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

0-4 on 3rd downs. If we were not under a moratorium, I would call for Spaz's head for that offensive ineptitude alone.

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

How is their most effective offensive player this game not playing in the last 2 offensive series?

 
At 5:08 PM, Blogger BlockParty said...

robbed on that challenge. no way in hell that was a catch.

 
At 5:09 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Can someone explain to me what the difference was between Swigert's incomplete and Toma's reception?

 
At 5:11 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

Robbed on the BC goal at the end of the 2nd period last night as well.

 
At 5:11 PM, Blogger Matt said...

3rd down, no rush, and still someone is open?

 
At 5:18 PM, Blogger BlockParty said...

d playing well enough, c'mon chase move the ball. lets get some points.

 
At 5:22 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

Why did he put Bordner in after the 1st down?

 
At 5:23 PM, Blogger BlockParty said...

Moving the ball! There we go Eagles!!

Chase making the throws on that drive, let's keep rolling!

 
At 5:23 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Don't look now, but we are in this game.

 
At 5:23 PM, Blogger mmason said...

Bordner can run, BJK. It's a BC TD!!!

 
At 5:24 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

Go BC - score!

I meant Bordner back at the 30 yard line.

Good calls on the pass to Pantale and the Bordner score .

 
At 5:25 PM, Blogger harrow said...

GDF is on the sideline with pen and paper, making way toward Spaz to sign another extension.

 
At 5:30 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

These 15-yard asinine mental-error penalties are killing us!

 
At 5:31 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

True that

 
At 5:32 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

Spaz better not take a damn knee.

 
At 5:33 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Frustrating. Well, I'm sure Spaz will take a knee here. Maybe they will squib kick it to us.

 
At 5:36 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Another mental error. Why didn;t Evans let that kickoff go out of bounds?

 
At 5:36 PM, Blogger BlockParty said...

run out the clock with the moral victory of being down 6 at half!!

 
At 5:36 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

I hate Spaz. What a &%^$&!

 
At 5:37 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Ron out the clock. Yeah Spaz!!

 
At 5:38 PM, Blogger BlockParty said...

coward.

spaz has no creativity.

andre williams has been a total dud this year.

moral victory.

 
At 5:39 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

That's what I like - the old college try.

Now for the half time pep talk.

 
At 5:40 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

The stupid penalties, the mental mistakes, the moronic playcalling, and the overall offensive ineptitude don't piss me off as much as Spaz being a damned coward. I haven't cursed this much the entire game until that guy ran the clock down.

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

I'm surprised Spaz didn't say that Michael Floyd would probably be the hero of the 2nd half. He's great!!

 
At 5:50 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

Guys are really playing hard - I'm proud.

Clemson down big to NC State.

I have to go to a dinner party deal - best of luck in the 2nd half all.

We get the ball and I can only hope the coaches give the players a chance.

Go BC - beat ND.

 
At 5:52 PM, Blogger mmason said...

OK--Spaz sux, blah, blah, blah. Whatever. Now, what would ND try to do to put more points up against BC's somewhat tenacious, occasionally wing-nut Defense? They're alittle bummed out right now. They expected an instant massacre (and so did I...sorry to say) and it didn't happen. Yeah, Spaz folds up the tent early, but our guys get the ball to start the next frame. So does ND blitz or what? We're down 6 and ND wants to make a statement. Kelly's having a cardiac right now in the Locker room, super pissed, yelling and screaming...Yeah, Spaz is doing what? Let me see...he's telling our guys to suck less, a totally negative pep talk...What next??
Will the Eagles surprise and shock the world?? Whaddya think, BC Nation? (No talk about contracts, Harrow.)

 
At 5:53 PM, Blogger dixieagle said...

I am so tired of Spaz's loser mentality. What a lousy excuse for a head coach he is.

 
At 6:02 PM, Blogger BlockParty said...

COME ON CHASE. COMPLETE THAT PASSSSSSS!!!

 
At 6:05 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Hiw in the heck does TOB lose to BC, but crush Clemson? He is the all-time king of WTF.

 
At 6:17 PM, Blogger Mike said...

ND's pass defense looks ripe for the picking

 
At 6:18 PM, Blogger BlockParty said...

i like the use of the TEs. they have been under-utilized all year. lets keep moving the ball!

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

goddammit.

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

Is Vardaro really the only option BC has? He has killed BC all season.

 
At 6:22 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

I love all the playaction and runs with Kimble. That's the only time the offense clicks. BC is finally playing to some of Rettig's strengths.

 
At 6:25 PM, Blogger BlockParty said...

nice job D! INT!

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

Oh yeahhhh Halloway! Almost just spit up my meatball!

 
At 6:27 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

Kimble is so much better than BC's other backs, including Finch.

 
At 6:28 PM, Blogger mmason said...

OK, Eagles! Now its time to roll on these guys--TE's and WR's need to make some catches and the blockers need to rock the ND front. Kimble is the man right now.

 
At 6:29 PM, Blogger Mario Rigatoni said...

Nice 3 and out, but we need to start thinking about icing the clock!

 
At 6:31 PM, Blogger mmason said...

Rettig throws a crappy ball...consistently inconsistent.
Throws into traffic and low, overthrows people by a mile...damn, we are so close to pulling this out...

 
At 6:33 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

BC fails to capitalize constantly. It cannot make a big play on offense. Thank God the defense is keeping them in the game.

 
At 6:34 PM, Blogger mmason said...

WE NEED A BC TD! C'mon Eagles!!!

 
At 6:36 PM, Blogger Mario Rigatoni said...

It won't be long until the Irish fans start rooting for BC, and then after we win, Keeks (draped in an American flag) makes an emotional "if I can change, and you can change" speech.

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

Rettig is a freaking disgrace. BC might be better off running Kimble every play for the rest of the game.

 
At 6:38 PM, Blogger BlockParty said...

we need to pass on first down! like we were doing on the TD-scoring drive late in the 2nd quarter!

 
At 6:38 PM, Blogger harrow said...

Rees looks worse than Rettig

 
At 6:39 PM, Blogger harrow said...

we have 2nd and 5 everytime, you can't ask for more and we can't get it done. If they keep on passing watch for a pick.

 
At 6:40 PM, Blogger mmason said...

Rees throws a ball that his guys can catch...Rettig throws a ball that's low and outside or in the dirt. Good baseball, bad football.

 
At 6:41 PM, Blogger harrow said...

although if they score, game is basically over as we can't move the ball at all.

 
At 6:46 PM, Blogger harrow said...

this bordener crap is ridicujous

 
At 6:46 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

I'm failing to comprehend why BC doesn't run the ball on second down. If they can gain 5-8 yards on first down, why the hell wouldn't you run it again?

 
At 6:48 PM, Blogger Mario Rigatoni said...

Nice timeout Spaz. We won't need those.

 
At 6:48 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

Run the damn ball!!!!!!!!!

 
At 6:49 PM, Blogger harrow said...

We should go with the Costanza philosophy. Do everything which is against Spaz's instincts on offense and see what happens.

 
At 6:49 PM, Blogger BlockParty said...

penalty after a timeout. at least the fumble didnt count. rettig got rocked there.

 
At 6:49 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

Lucky as hell with that penalty

 
At 6:50 PM, Blogger Mario Rigatoni said...

Anyone else loving these Volkswagon commercials? LOL.

 
At 6:51 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

Who is worse: Spaz or Rettig?

 
At 6:51 PM, Blogger BlockParty said...

amidon is worthless.

 
At 6:52 PM, Blogger mmason said...

Rettig has the yips, ok. The Yips. The friggen Yips. He throws on 3rd down like I putt for $100 on the 18th.
Where are the Eagle Cajones?? We can win this thing...but will piss it away with stupid offensive ineptitude.

 
At 6:54 PM, Blogger harrow said...

if they get a fg here it is over, we can't get 10 pts in 10 mins. our field position outstanding all day and nothing happens. now we will play prevent d the rest of the game, lol.

 
At 6:55 PM, Blogger Mario Rigatoni said...

Annnnd say goodnight!

 
At 6:55 PM, Blogger harrow said...

nd gave us so many chances it is sick. we are inept on offense due to coaching, end of story.

 
At 6:59 PM, Blogger mmason said...

Harrow--you are dreaming. Rettig has had three TD plays that were right there and he blew the throws. Coaching didn't do that. We could have scored or converted several times and didn't because our QB can't handle the heat. He's got no Ice...he's had chances all day. Rees didn't fold. Rettig choked.

 
At 7:02 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

Rettig and Spaz can share the blame. Rettig cannot throw whatsoever but the playcalling has been atrocious as well. If Rettig can't throw, then why the hell is BC passing 2 downs each possession? Why is Kimble (the most effective offensive player on the field for BC this game) riding pine most of the first half?

 
At 7:03 PM, Blogger BlockParty said...

announcers are spot on with rettig, talking about his footwork. terrible footwork, it shows his youth. he's had time this game to set and he doesnt. do we punt if we dont make the first down here?

 
At 7:03 PM, Blogger harrow said...

yes we should be throwing short screens to kimble.

 
At 7:04 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

It is time to bring in Shitskie. Rettig hasn't even been close this half. Good night, don't let the door hit you on the ass on the way out.

 
At 7:05 PM, Blogger Mario Rigatoni said...

Rettig/Rittig sucks.

 
At 7:06 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

What goes on during halftime that transforms Rettig from a competent QB into a Pop Warner second stringer in the second half every game?

 
At 7:07 PM, Blogger harrow said...

rettig has missed passes but he has someone in his face all day long. thus they should be rolling him out of the pocket, throwing screens, running kimble more. he has made mistakes, but the coaching staff is not making the right calls. when he has time like on the touchdown drive he can make a few plays. well at least it was entertaining, we can still hope spaz is gone now with another loss. we can't even get 200 yds of offense. we started on avg around the nd 40 and we get 7 points. the offense has no rhyme or reason. just clean house and get people in with some heart on the coaching side. that being said, nd is not that great either.

 
At 7:07 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Game over. You can't win college football games when you only score 7 points.

I despise Spaz. I cannot stand the man. He is a terrible leader and should never have been promoted. He took a consistent bowl team and destroyed it in 3 years flat. 0-3 versus Notre Dame! 0 and fricken 3. That alone should be grounds for termination. Even TOB understood how important this game is to alumni and made sure he rarely lost this game.

 
At 7:08 PM, Blogger harrow said...

spaz is now a friend of nd at this point, he will help them with colck management, and sitting off wr's

 
At 7:09 PM, Blogger mmason said...

Uncle Dave will be too late to resurrect this fiasco. We had our chances to win this thing atleast 3 times. Now we have to listen all the damn ND homer BS for the next five minutes until our collective heads explode. McGovern was a genius today...Rettig was a mediocre sophomore in a big time Div. 1 classic who saw the headlights and FROZE.

Now they'll score on us and so it goes...

 
At 7:10 PM, Blogger BlockParty said...

rettig has been dogshit this second half. he doesnt set his feet. i do not understand why we havent been running kimble all 2nd half. screens?! those get blown up every single time.

 
At 7:13 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

By the way, I listened to Meter and Cronin at half and Cronan said, "Let's see what adjustments are made at halftime. BC has not been good with adjustments all season." Cronan is liable to get fired for speaking ill of the Spaz regime.

 
At 7:14 PM, Blogger Mario Rigatoni said...

If I remember correctly, Uncle Shinebox had a pretty decent game against ND 2 years ago*. Put him in!

*aside from the 4 INTs, but those were freshman mistakes!!

 
At 7:15 PM, Blogger harrow said...

get the ball in kimble's hand whether a screen, dump off etc. if they blow it up so be it, we can't even set one up because we are inept at anything offensive. screens and dumpoffs work in college football, especially if you give it to your best offensive player. we probably would not have been able to execute it anyway so it is pointless talking about it. now we will just run the ball up the middle when we get it back.

 
At 7:16 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Watch, if BC scores here, BC will elect not to do an onside kick.

 
At 7:16 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

Ha, you were right on that one

 
At 7:19 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

I don't believe what I'm seeing

 
At 7:20 PM, Blogger BlockParty said...

god i hate these ND homers.

PUNCH THIS IN.

 
At 7:21 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

Undisciplined--once again on Spaz

 
At 7:22 PM, Blogger BlockParty said...

and of course, a false start penalty.


incredibly disciplined team.

 
At 7:22 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

55 yards in penalties. Ouch.

BC has to kick a field goal if they get to 4th down.

 
At 7:22 PM, Blogger harrow said...

they run the same play after the offsides, when they showed before what they were doing, lol

 
At 7:22 PM, Blogger harrow said...

great throw for td

 
At 7:24 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

OK, I'm pretty sure Spaz will kick the onside. Statistically, not a very good play but it is our only chance.

 
At 7:24 PM, Blogger Mario Rigatoni said...

Nice drive. And Spaz saves his job!!!

 
At 7:24 PM, Blogger harrow said...

Why didn't you go for the onside kick/

Spaz: Well our defense played well all game and we thought we could stop them.

There wasn't enough time though for that option and you had one timeout.

Spaz: Time, Schime.

 
At 7:25 PM, Blogger ToTheHeights said...

Sure could have used some points before halftime....

 
At 7:25 PM, Blogger mmason said...

So close--we are so close. Go Eagles!

 
At 7:26 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Yeah, but Iowa State has a real coach.

 
At 7:26 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

Ya, if only they tried before the half

 
At 7:27 PM, Blogger harrow said...

what an attempt! They probably don't even pratice that.

 
At 7:28 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

What in the ever living hell was that?

 
At 7:28 PM, Blogger mmason said...

That was the worst onside kick I have ever seen...

 
At 7:29 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Well, we scored more touchdowns than they did.

 
At 7:29 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

BC could use that TO Spaz wasted earlier in the quarter.

 
At 7:29 PM, Blogger harrow said...

so we get the ball with what, 20 seconds.

 
At 7:29 PM, Blogger BlockParty said...

time out?

 
At 7:30 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

Send the house!

 
At 7:31 PM, Blogger harrow said...

can we pull off a michigan?

 
At 7:32 PM, Blogger Mario Rigatoni said...

Take a knee Spaz. Don't want to risk an INT.

 
At 7:33 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Give the defense credit. They kept us in the game. Not many teams have limited ND to 1 TD.

Hey, let's get Dayne Crist.

 
At 7:34 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

Well BC did just enough unfortunately to keep Spaz's job for another year.

 
At 7:37 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Just enough? He's 0-3 against Notre Dame when the prior two coaches dominated the pseudo-leprechauns. He needs to go. We have to lance the boil and bring in a new, fresh face that knows something about offense. Hell, fire everyone but keep McGovern. The guy is a pretty darn good D coach.

 
At 7:42 PM, Blogger mmason said...

The Defense was magnificent. Played the pass coverage so tight, knowing Rees couldn't run--but our offense just didn't (ONCE AGAIN) produce with a dozen chances to turn this into a classic upset. WouldaShouldaCoulda...Spaz blah blah blah...Let's face it--Rettig needs to throw a better ball and we need to score 30 plus points a game or mail it in, cuz we got NO Offense. Horses matter.
Go Eagles!--Miami is next and we can finish with a win...Booyah, Vegas! Cover this!

 
At 8:13 PM, Blogger JBQ said...

Mike Mayock (announcer from BC)pointed out that Rettig threw some good balls on the last drive. I believe that he needs a coach. He can't plant his right leg for some reason. His left leg is in a brace. Look at closeups of his legs. He has legs like Babe Ruth (piano legs). There is no calf and leg development on many of the BC off & def backfield players.

 
At 8:16 PM, Blogger Benjamin said...

Mmason - you deserve whatever margarita you are drinking.

Thoughts on the game:
- Rettig showed why he could be a great quarterback and why he needs a coach badly. I can't tell if receivers were running bad routes, or if he over/under threw them.
-Bordner wasn't all that effective. Killed some momentum.
- Outside of the first Irish drive, our D was great. I think McGovern was hampered by injuries earlier on, and has slowly been able to bring the D up to snuff.
- Holloway will have a break out year next year. He's been good this year, with several mistakes. With a more experienced line, and having Ramsey back, our d-line will be brutal.
- O-line was better tonight. They weren't good, but weren't bad. With as much pressure as ND was bringing, I was surprised with how much time they gave Rettig.
- Should not have started Williams. Finch and Kimble are much better backs, with better vision. Williams is definitely a bruiser, but K and F are better backs.
- I will admit that this a young team. For any other coach, that might be valid reason for returning. But Spaz showed why, even with all of his excuses, he should not be HC next year. With a minute, twelve left in the first half, he knelt that ball. There is no excuse for that. A field goal, (hypothetically) and the game is ours. There is no apparent will to win. There is talent with this team, very competitive talent, but there is no proper development. With the right coach, this team will be deadly next year. Even if Spaz is back, we need to have the right OC (and possible successor). This game proved that the D is coming back.
- We need a proper offensive staff.

EB--Spaz did just enough in GDF's pathetic eyes to stay another year. Of course he has to go though.

Benjamin--BC had 2 TOs left as well. That's an eternity!

Oh, also, sorry for my harshness today. I have an inflamed hemorrhoid

Bravesbill - You're right. I forgot to mention that, which makes it even worse. With our last score, around a 1:30 was all that was necessary. Clearly, our guys can do it. Why the staff won't execute is the reason for the dismissal.

Hmm the man pretending to be me must be a Spaz family member, or maybe it's the idiotic man himself!

BC Nation, bros & babes, we were picked to lose to ND today at a catastrophic massacre level...but managed to lose to the Irish by a mere 2 pts. because we gave them the game on a platter of youthful ineptitude. We messed up the Vegas line by a ton, and forced the ND homer Domer announcers to admit that we "hung in" there with their vaunted, over-hyped football team. Then TOB beats Clemson after losing
to BC? Spaz looks like an old grizzled wizard to the media guys. He took an injury riddled team to "almost glory" over ND. We're the victims of our age. BS rules in a BCS world. Here's to the Eagles of BC...A team of its time. No harm, no foul. See ya next time...

Rettig had 35 or so passes.

We were running well on first down and not following it up with runs on 2nd and 3rd.

Seem like we could have worn them down more on D.

The irony of NBC the Notre Dame network is that ALL of their on air talent graduated from BC . . . Flutie and Mayock.


I also found it funny that Notre Dame plays the Dropkick Murphys between downs considering they are a Boston, Irish, puck band that uses the BC Fight song to open their concerts . . .

It always circles back to Boston College

Also the BC Sucks chants in the second quarter were great. I love the hate.
