In-game comments post: Northwestern

This is our first road test and a chance to gain a little bit of national respect. Or it could be a long day against a tough Northwestern team. Since it is sort of BC's birthday, I think we are due for some good luck.

I know plenty of people will be at Fenway or in bars, but feel free to leave your thoughts and comments below.

Anyone know if this is definitely on the Big Ten Network? Verizon Fios guide in Boston shows Umass Michigan on at 3:30.

 
At 1:36 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

I have AT&T U-verse and I think I have the game as part of my HD Services. The ALT HD channels pick up all of the BTN games. I guess I won't know for sure until 3:30pm, but the game is listed.

Boy, Virginia Tech looks unmotivated and stupid today. If PITT can improve, so can we. Or is VT that bad?

 
At 1:47 PM, Blogger Benjamin said...

BJK,
I think Pitt came out on fire and ready to play, and VT thought they could coast by. Pitt's beginning the typical ACC upset early.

 
At 2:32 PM, Blogger Tim said...

It is definitely on the Big Ten Network. I also have Fios in the Boston area. Try channel 330. Apparently they're only showing the UMass/Michigan game in HD, but BC/NW in SD.

 
At 2:35 PM, Blogger Tim said...

or it might be 331... I forget... anyway, it's on one of the Big Ten Network SD stations (the Big Ten Network consists of several channels, like how ESPN includes ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, etc.)

 
At 2:42 PM, Blogger Lenny Sienko said...

Big Ten Network (on Direct TV at least) adds channels as needed each week. Direct TV has BC game at 3:30pm on 611 and 611-HD.

 
At 2:45 PM, Blogger jay said...

Is there an illegal stream anywhere? Need to squeeze in between church & reception. Thanks

 
At 3:37 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

VT loss shows that this year's schedule is not as hard as some thought.

 
At 3:38 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

Lenny: I am watching on Directv channel 612.

Jay: for illegal streams, I would check the different BC message boards. Someone usually finds one.

 
At 3:42 PM, Blogger Lenny Sienko said...

Tuned in on Direct TV and game is set for Direct Tv 612. Big Ten Network is very confusing as they show other games on designated channel until kickoff. I'm watching Michigan band now. Just switched with black screen to our game.

 
At 3:44 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

I have it and here we go. BC kicked off - out of endzone.

NU gets a quick 1st down.

 
At 3:46 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

we had the QB for a loss but he picked up the 1st down.

 
At 3:50 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

2 bad defensive penalties.

Oh Boy!

3 - 0 NU

 
At 3:55 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

Spiffy to the 37.

3rd and 2

 
At 3:59 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

Evans good catch

Amidon good catch.

Elliott good catch.

Finch good catch

1st and goal

 
At 4:01 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

The drops remain killers. Amidon should have pulled that TD in. But still a nice opening drive. If NU doesn't get to Rettig, he's going to pick them apart.

 
At 4:03 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

Groan. No TV. Only option: Meter on the radio. Awful. Considering listening to Meter with volume off

 
At 4:03 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

3 - 3

Red-zone inefficiency again.

We can move the ball on this team.

We can win if we don't shoot ourselves in the foot.

I'll give this a break.

 
At 4:04 PM, Blogger Galvin said...

Chase is making some great throws.

 
At 4:04 PM, Blogger brog33 said...

Heres the internet feed

http://www.thefirstrow.eu/watch/140901/1/watch-northwestern-vs-boston-college.html

 
At 4:10 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

How is Colter killing us again? Did we not watch last year's film?

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

I can't answer why we're not getting more pressure on Kolter. Good stops at the goal line though.

 
At 4:17 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

BC 2nd and 1 foot managed into a 4th and 16.

 
At 4:17 PM, Blogger Benjamin said...

Dang, those snaps should not happen.

 
At 4:17 PM, Blogger Galvin said...

We have had all 3 games feature complete bonehead plays.

 
At 4:20 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

This other QB is a better passer - he might kill us.

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

The offsides on 3rd down by the rudolph was dumb, dropped TD pass should have been caught according to St. Pierre and botched snap.

Only down 3.

Already frustrated.

 
At 4:22 PM, Blogger Galvin said...

Yah he is going to exploit our nice cushion. Also good to see we still can't stop screen plays after getting killed by them the past 3 years.

 
At 4:26 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

Our defense is not what it used to be.

 
At 4:27 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

How can we not catch these guys? We look really slow on D.

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

Now let's open it up for Chase. Our only run plays should be draws.

 
At 4:28 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

The only reason we "stopped" them was the receiver dropped the screen.

NU 9 to 3

 
At 4:31 PM, Blogger Benjamin said...

ATL,
And we don't even look gassed. Just slow.

 
At 4:31 PM, Blogger Galvin said...

Anyone know if Brian Miller is playing today?

 
At 4:35 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

Don't know if Miller is playing. Naples has played a lot though...which is good.

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

This is the weirdest OL in BC history. Very good pass blocking, but struggle when asked to move. Still better than last year.

 
At 4:36 PM, Blogger Bosgal33 said...

BTN Broadcast is painful.

 
At 4:38 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

Maybe I spoke to soon about the OLine.

 
At 4:40 PM, Blogger Benjamin said...

BJK, to be fair, the only reason why we're not winning is because our receivers have quite literally dropped the ball.

 
At 4:41 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

This is sad - the Offensive line is terrible.

The first drive was encouraging - now back to the sam old crap.

If we can't run, get Kimble in there for the pass out of the backfield.

We are really missing Pantale, Swigert and Larmond.

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

More missed tackles.

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

This is starting to feel like last year's UCF game.

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

Did someone just forget to teach that?

 
At 4:46 PM, Blogger Galvin said...

NU has 3rd and 3 and we are giving their receivers a 10 yard cushion. I wonder if they will get a first do-... oh yes of course, they will.

 
At 4:48 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

Our arm tackles are quite inadequate.

Defense is slow and not aggressive at all.

Stupid Clancy penalty.

They will score now.

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

Good penetration by KPL.

 
At 4:51 PM, Blogger Galvin said...

Think this NU QB's name is really pronounced "Si-mee-un" like the announcers are currently doing?

 
At 4:53 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

Nice stop by BC. Good noise from the BC crowd at Ryan Field.

 
At 4:55 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

Fumbled exchange for a BC "stop".

We'll take it on 4th and inches.

We can't run - stop the Tranquill offense.

Lucky penalty for us.

 
At 4:56 PM, Blogger Galvin said...

Very good stop

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

Let's see how Spaz manages the clock. Spaz screwed it up against NU last year before halftime.

 
At 4:59 PM, Blogger Galvin said...

Amidon and Rettig play well together. Let's get a score.

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

Good use of the time out there.
Bill, to your point, it's good to hear the BC crowd on D.

 
At 5:00 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

WRs looking good this drive.

Stop rushing the ball.

Take what they give us.

Coleman TD

 
At 5:01 PM, Blogger Galvin said...

Yes! Wonderful throw. Nice catch too!

 
At 5:01 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

BC 10 to 9

I have to get ready to go to dinner.

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

TD COLEMAN.
BJK, hopefully dinner will go quickly through the half.

 
At 5:04 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

Coleman is coming along. He's finally putting it together.

 
At 5:06 PM, Blogger Galvin said...

BJK, have your phone under the table.

 
At 5:10 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

The only bright spot about our D being terrible is that most of our ACC opponents are mediocre on offense.

 
At 5:11 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

We are lucky to only be down two after that half. Looks like it is going to be on Rettig's back again.

 
At 5:14 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Finally got a Big 10 Network password. Saw the Coleman touchdown. Other than that, it does not look like I missed much.

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

We're not getting any pressure upfront with the D-line. It's like they're running in place.

 
At 5:19 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Another nail-biter finish coming up. BC in this era is not good in close games. They need to learn how to win. It starts today.

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

We have the worst hands in college football.

 
At 5:34 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

That was not a good way to start the second half.

 
At 5:35 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

These receivers have got to hang on to the flippin' ball!

 
At 5:35 PM, Blogger Benjamin said...

Is glue illegal in college football?

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

Fumble!!!

 
At 5:43 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

Glad Spaz went for it. Need to show confidence.

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

Nice run by Finch!

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

BTW, I still hate the white stripe helmet.

 
At 5:45 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

That was the most predictable end to the drive possible.

 
At 5:46 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

WTF!!! Can the offensive coaches please teach the running backs how to carry the ball!! This can be taught.

 
At 5:47 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

He should never see the damned field again.

 
At 5:48 PM, Blogger Galvin said...

Goddammit

 
At 5:48 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

ATL, what don't you like about the white stripe?

 
At 5:50 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

10 yard cushion burns us again!

 
At 5:52 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

This defense is absolutely pathetic as well. 9 of 13 on third down conversions.

 
At 5:54 PM, Blogger Galvin said...

They are converting every play.

 
At 5:57 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Boy our front 4 stinks

 
At 5:57 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

That was a lucky bounce but I like the idea of going after Colter on the pitch.

 
At 6:03 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

We are so lucky to be in this game.

 
At 6:06 PM, Blogger Galvin said...

We are going to win.

 
At 6:09 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Ditch the run. It's not working.

 
At 6:12 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

I've been listening to audio. No video. But this is a really really bad defense.

McGovern is bad news.

 
At 6:16 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

As much as we want to blame the defense, the offense has been crap also. 13 points? That is not getting it done. BC is going to need 21-24 points to win this game.

 
At 6:17 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

Now the defense needs to get a 3 and out.

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

I was just telling my wife last week that someone is going to get hurt doing those chest jumps. Bring back the high 5.

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

3 and outs are going to be rare this season ATL.

 
At 6:23 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

4th and 4, just through to the flat and you have 10 yards

 
At 6:24 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

That was a lucky flag. NU had the conversion without it.

 
At 6:24 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

I meant "throw"

 
At 6:29 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Stop trying to run the ball!!

 
At 6:32 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Rettig had Amidon open early on that 3rd down and missed it.

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

I know there is 9 minutes left, but I feel like we won't get the ball back again.

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

Win or lose this is the most Spaz game of all time.

 
At 6:41 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

This is a very, very bad BC football team. I think the only games they have a shot at are Army, Maryland and Wake.

ATL, you are right, they are not getting the ball back

 
At 6:43 PM, Blogger Galvin said...

We called a timeout even though they had a hurt guy down

 
At 6:43 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Yet another concussion. You have to be insane to play this game.

 
At 6:44 PM, Blogger mmason said...

Why don't we all just cut and paste in any and all comments from last year on any game in which we scored less than 20 points, and save that energy on today's post for the misery session that will inevitably follow...

 
At 6:45 PM, Blogger Galvin said...

Oh thank you KPL

 
At 6:47 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

Another drop.

 
At 6:47 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Yeah, Mmason, I can just see this. Rettig drives from the 2 to the NW 20. A BC lineman will move too soon and we will be penalized the yardage and the 10 seconds and lose the game.

Or, BC will be in field goal range, Spaz will have Kimble run all the way to the left, and Freese will miss the field goal.

At 6:48 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

MMason,

I might just do that. This looks like a Spaz offense.

 
At 6:50 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

When did we use our first timeout? I don't remember that.

 
At 6:50 PM, Blogger Ry said...

That ball was touched in the end zone by a northwestern player. Terrible non-review by spaz. He's the worst

 
At 6:53 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

First order of business for Interim AD on October 1......Fire Spaz!!!! Make Martin the interim coach and get this black cloud aka Spazoo far away from Chestnut Hill.

 
At 6:54 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

What are the chances that we score, get the onside kick, and score again?

 
At 6:56 PM, Blogger Ry said...

Can we please talk about how awful it was not to review the touchback on that punt ? Go back and look if you can. Ball was clearly touched by Northwestern while in the end zone.

 
At 7:00 PM, Blogger Galvin said...

Its inexcusable. What a worthless coach.

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

Fire Spaz.

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

You know #firespaz on twitter is trending now!

 
At 7:18 PM, Blogger Knucklehead said...

Spaz should be let go because he is not a good head coach.

HOWEVER,THIS GAME WAS LOST BY THE PLAYERS.

The Miami game was also lost by the players.

Too many dropped passes today according to the radio broadcast. The Finch fumble was egregious in its incompetence.

Lets put it this way, if Spaz were losing games this way last season he would not be number one on coaching hot seat. The bad losses last season were his fault. These games are on the players.

These players ought to thank their lucky stars that the majority of people in the Boston media do not care about BC football because some of them would be run out of town for their mistakes in the big college football towns. Sorry but, Amidon and Finch are who I am referring to specifically. They need to learn to control the ball when it is in their hands.

Ridiculous.

Not even getting started on the Defense. Just frustrating.


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

We are completely irrelevant by the way.

Look at the Globe sports section today. One story, like five paragraphs, buried in the back around stories about UMASS and Harvard. The Big Ten Network showed the UMASS Michigan game. The game was not on the biggest cable provider in the Hometown market(Boston).

We are completely irrelevant and out shadowed in New England by UMASS. Who SUCKS.

I'm pissed.
