In-game comments post: Maine

BC gets its chance to bounce back from last week's loss and Maine gets a chance to make national headlines. Let's hope it is a boring game (in a good way) and BC controls. Leave your thoughts and comments below.

I'll be heading over to Alumni within the hour.

Coach Cosgrove of Maine said that "They've got to be licking themselves in terms of the (Miami) game. I thought they were the far superior team. It was really baffling how BC didn't get that one."

We'll find some anwers today, eh?

Let's go BC. Come out smoking and don't let up. Beat Maine!

Triple Echo!!!

Big Jack Krack said...

Oh boy - It was a typo. I meant "kicking" themselves.

Triple Echo = emotion, energy and enthusiasm.

ATL_eagle said...

Attendance looks bad. We should always play FCS teams on Parents Weekend.

ATL_eagle said...

Is anyone else's feed real pixelated?

eagleboston said...

ATL,

Yes, the feed is a bit shaky for me.

My brother is at Alumni and says their are only 20k there.

eagleboston said...

Nice run by Finch!

ATL_eagle said...

That was a great run but also a terrible mistake. You've got to be more careful.

eagleboston said...

The Spaz black cloud continues.

This is like the 3rd time in the Spaz era a player has fumbled trying to reach for the goal line. Just fricken tell them to go down and we will get them on the next play.

eagleboston said...

Boy Paul McGuire sure has fallen. He has gone from covering NFL games to doing BC versus Maine. I do like his color commentary though.

eagleboston said...

10 yard BC cushion on 3rd and 3 results in a first down conversion.

Danny Boy said...

Spaz must not realize that 3rd down is a crucial down and that people only try to get to the sticks. Cushions like that only belong in Greek orgies.

eagleboston said...

Scoreboard watching, Miami getting throttled 24-3. BC is worse than we thought.

eagleboston said...

Cripes, put in Javorsky. He never fumbles in the Spring Game.

I hope McGuire is right and they overturn it.

ATL_eagle said...

Can we just pass it from here on out?

ATL_eagle said...

BC is now trailing Maine. Who can Spaz blame this on?

ATL_eagle said...

We need to just start throwing the ball. This is a complete waste.

Danny Boy said...

I find it hard to believe that the team that was picking apart Miami's secondary is having trouble with Maine's secondary. Unleash the hounds, Spaz.

Benjamin said...

Rettig just needs to light up the field. No more running.

ATL_eagle said...

why not run the flanker pass with Bordner?

ATL_eagle said...

That was a nice drive. Now just do that four more times.

eagleboston said...

Rettig looks great. Nice TD pass!

Danny Boy said...

ATL, too predictable. You line a QB up like that, everyone will expect the 2nd pass. Of course, running the same play in the first 2 games of the season, people will now expect it anyways.

However, Coleman shouldn't be the guy throwing the ball. It should be Amidon, Evans, or eventually Swigert. Coleman could be better used as a blocker (if we just play it as a bubble screen) or receiver.

eagleboston said...

This offense, even when struggling to score points, is so much more fun to watch than the prior 3 years. Of course it helps to have a veteran QB. And keep in mind, Swigert and Pantale have yet to play!

eagleboston said...

Its about time an opponent gives us a freebie

ATL_eagle said...

Nice catch by Coleman there.

dixieagle said...

Well, that's more like it.

Benjamin said...

I say we keep throwing until they stop us. Granted, we shouldn't be fearing the mighty Maine defense in the first place, but Rettig deserves to have his numbers boosted. Plus, he's throwing TD's left and right.

eagleboston said...

That was a crap 3 and out. They just don't know how to put teams away.

AlbanyEagle said...

worst camera coverage ever!

ATL_eagle said...

Gene is speaking at Halftime. Must see TV...er internet feed.

Danny Boy said...

I love taking 10 seconds to call the no-brainer time out to preserve clock. I guess Spaz wanted less time to run out, while still maintaining the appearance of a smart coach.

dixieagle said...

Come on, guys. Score again before halftime.

eagleboston said...

Don't like running on first down when you need to run your 2-minute offense.

Also, how is Cole unblocked on the sack?

eagleboston said...

Rettig has accumulated a lot of incomplete passes the past couple drives.

ATL_eagle said...

That was not a good half. We are much better than this score indicates.

eagleboston said...

Even with the field goal, Spaz cannot be happy with the play of his team. 2 fumbles, only 3-8 on third down, Rettig at 50% going 12-24.

Positives: the defense is playing much better, Freese is still perfect, Gene is retiring.

eagleboston said...

Man, the stadium is empty. This is a big reason we have trouble with recruiting. Big time players want to play in big time environments.

eagleboston said...

I guess Amy Poehler was too busy getting divorced to wish BC a happy birthday.

GDF on what he'll look back on upon retiring:

"It not the victories you remember".

We know Gene, we know

mod34b said...

Crowd looks ok for FCS opponent. Probably 36,000

mod34b said...

Bc looks bad

Rettig has regressed

Miami is getting blasted by KState, showing Miami sucks and our loss was actually a bad loss to a terrible team


eagleboston said...

Thanks to Gene, I can watch virtually every single BC game from 1,000 miles away. Great, great move getting BC to the ACC and away from the Big Least.

eagleboston said...

Duke Johnson just had a 76 yard kick-off return. He us for real.

ATL_eagle said...

That wasn't the start off the half I wanted. Maine should've scored on that drive.

eagleboston said...

Flutie!!!

eagleboston said...

The offense looks like absolute shit now.

Freese still perfect.

Danny Boy said...

Ugh, really should be scoring a TD there. Ugly play calling.

mod34b said...

Where is the player energy this week? So much buzz, excitement last week. This week not so much. Meh

mod34b said...

Spiffy! 83 yard punt return.

eagleboston said...

Spiffy!!! When is the last time BC had a punt return for a TD? Has to be years ago.

Benjamin said...

SPIFFY EVANS!

Benjamin said...

Eagleboston,
I think it was Rich Gunnel

ATL_eagle said...

Nice play by Asprilla there.

ATL_eagle said...

That is how you follow up on a Turnover.

mod34b said...

SweetnRettig pass to Amidon

eagleboston said...

There's the rout we expected.

Time to put in Bordner and the scrubs.

Danny Boy said...

Wow, another foot injury. When do we start demanding compensation from Astro Turf?

eagleboston said...

I think you are right Benjamin. That was not too long ago.

WTF, Sinkovec with a foot injury. Another one! Get these players some better shoes!

ATL_eagle said...

Danny, I blame under armour's shoes. You don't see Maine and Miami players breaking bones on our turf.

Danny Boy said...

ATL, while I definitely agree that UA provides a lot of sub-par products to our guys, they didn't seem like an issue last year.

Are the Terps suffering from the same type of injuries?

ATL_eagle said...

Rettig's stats are going to be bad for this game, but I think his play has been decent.

ATL_eagle said...

Danny:

South Carolina players have been complaining about the shoes.

eagleboston said...

My gosh, BC is only 4-12 on 3rd downs. Against Maine! What the heck are we going to do against Northwestern if we can't convert 3rd downs.

Danny Boy said...

Thanks, ATL. I've always thought of UA as an appearance over substance company.

The equipment supplier for the team can make all the difference. I remember when Nike supplied for the Hockey team, all the basketball guys would be doing all sorts of favors for them in hopes to get some Nike swag.

The Reebok reps would always have fits when they walked in on practices and saw the whole team wearing Nikes instead of their supplied shoes.
