In-game comments post: NC State

This is your last time to question Spaz's timeouts or his insistence on taking a knee to start the game. Plus there is the added bonus of commenting on TOB for potentially the last time. And this is the last BC football game for another nine months. It has been bad, but bad BC football is better than no BC football. Comment away!

Did you read Benbow's article in the Globe today? Can't believe they (the players) really feel Spaz got dealt a bad hand. If a CEO went 8-5, 7-6, 4-8 and 2-10 the board would demand his resignation. In this case, the board should be the donors and season tickets holders.

As my oldest graduated form BC last year and my youngest is a sophomore at FSU -- guess which game I will be watching today? Go Eagles and Go Noles!

11/24/2012 -- the last game of Frank Spaziani's pathetic head coaching career. good riddance and goodbye spaziani, i can't wait to be excited about BC football again.

No denying the players are classy and loyal (and know what side their bread is currently buttered on.) Also no denying that the hiring of Spaz as HC was a total disaster; he was in over his head from Day 1.

I'll be following the game online, but can't currently work up much enthusiasm, though I always want them to win.

I will, however, be eagerly awaiting the announcement of a press conference.

Wouldn't you know it...Spaz last game--technical difficulties--no radio--no TV

 
At 3:22 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

Wasting opportunities. Who would have guessed with this team.

Lenny, youre lucky

This announcer really trying to work the BC qb's are small angle, despite the other guy's mention of Matt Ryan. Also we were "the golden eagles" for a bit.

Rettig looks like that first round draft pick knuckle keeps on telling us about!

 
At 3:54 PM, Blogger AA said...

Spaz will win a coach of the year award before Rettig plays a down in the nfl.

 
At 4:04 PM, Blogger bc1900 said...

According to knuckle he is a first round draft pick and if you think otherwise you don't know anything about football. He has made numerous posts pertaining to this subject.

 
At 4:06 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

This is one of those games where people wonder what I see in Rettig.

 
At 4:10 PM, Blogger Thomas said...

the end of an error! at last!

 
At 4:12 PM, Blogger bc1900 said...

rettig is the most overrated player ever to play at bc. everyone else stinks, so people put him on a pedastal. he is an avg qb at best and just because he was recruited by tenn and ucla people just assumed he was the next flutie or ryan, its ridiculous. he has not shown much progress over the last three years at all.

 
At 4:13 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

We're losing and I feel nothing. No anger, no disgust. Just nothing. Perhaps this is due to the fact 3 wins versus 2 is absolutely meaningless.

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

I like Rettig but he has not moved the ball or scored points at all this season. I think Suntrup will get a shot next year under a new coach.

 
At 4:15 PM, Blogger AA said...

Correction...Spaz will win to COY awards before Rettig plays a down in NFL.

BC fever, catch it!

 
At 4:22 PM, Blogger bc1900 said...

knucklehead 11/19/12 on Rettig

"Rettig is a first round draft pick if he makes it through next season alive. Remember when Matt Ryan played his senior year with broken bone in his foot. Rettig has been playing with a hurt back and knee issues since the Maine game. He is the only legitimate Division 1 player on the team.

Anyone who questions Rettig ought to be thrown off the island.

You all are PATHETIC and do not know anything about football let alone Boston College football. And I don't care about your credentials or experience or whatever BS you are going to come back with."

 
At 4:26 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

Does anyone else feel like we won't score seven points?

 
At 4:26 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

So, will Spaz take a knee here? You don't want anything bad to happen down 4 with only 4 minutes left in the half.

 
At 4:33 PM, Blogger EL MIZ said...

gotta love Spaz's benching of Finch for 6 games. since Spaz had to start playing Finch again due to other injuries:

vs. ND: 7 rushes for 40 yards (5.7 per); 5 receptions for 25 yards
vs. VA Tech: 26 carries for 133 yards (5.1 per); 5 receptions for 53 yards
today already has 8 rushes for 45 yards.

in sum, Spaz benched our best running back for 6 games. other RBs fumbled and didn't get benched. another perplexing subplot to this horrible season.

Time to tea knee

 
At 4:35 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

*take a knee

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

With the way Rettig is playing I wouldn't be surprised if Spaz burns Shinskie's redshirt

 
At 4:35 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

Take a kneelll

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

For BC1900 and AA, Rettig has my respect because he continues to play hard despite everything facing him. He may not be the next coming of Matt Ryan, but with a terrible coach and terrible protection, I think he's done well by his teammates and BC.

 
At 4:36 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

Who cares if Shinskei comes back?

 
At 4:38 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

Spaz!!! I said take a knee

Too funny

 
At 4:39 PM, Blogger Walter said...

Good thing we didn't have two time outs so we didn't have to rush that last play. That could have caused an interception.

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

Now I understand why Spaz always takes a knee. Shame on us for questioning his wisdom.

 
At 4:40 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

Unreal- frank you told us so

 
At 4:41 PM, Blogger bc1900 said...

they should put shinskie in, why not, give him a send off. rettig is horrible today and is also getting killed physically.

 
At 4:41 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

I hate to say it but Rettig has really regressed. I hope another coordinator helps.

 
At 4:42 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

You will lose your job because you didn't takethe knee

 
At 4:42 PM, Blogger ModA36 said...

What is thE objective evidence of rettig's greatness? I don't see it.

 
At 4:42 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

As I mentioned earlier, I like Rettig, but today is just not his day. I hope he improves dramatically in the 2nd half.

 
At 4:42 PM, Blogger EL MIZ said...

30 minutes left of the biggest loser in college football. we should take a knee every possession in the second half so the end comes sooner.

goodbye Spaz, enjoy your Gene DeFilipo retirement package.

 
At 4:43 PM, Blogger Big Ern said...

11 points at half=insurmountable lead

 
At 4:44 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

NCSU also has the worst pass defense in ACC

Rettig looks like he has mental/attitude issues. Severely lacking confidence

 
At 4:45 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

Spaz will make the right half time adjustments!!

Too funny again

 
At 4:49 PM, Blogger del olio said...

No line U.

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

"I know never what anybody is thinking, okay?" Spaz when asked if working with TOB for several years helps him know what TOB is thinking.

That is why you are the worst coach in BC history you loser!

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

ACC really stinks. FSU is not prepared for this game today. GT was wiped out anf Paul Johnson is a fraud.

And BC is firmly entrenched in last place.,

Wow - Jags fault.

 
At 4:57 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

Actually NcSU is #120/124 in NCAA against the pass - and BC can do nothing!

Just some awful football

 
At 5:01 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

Jack - what the word down there about Clemson v SCar.

I can't see Clemson winning. Maybe Clemson gets blown out?

 
At 5:02 PM, Blogger Deacon Drake said...

Did anyone else catch Mike London's clock management at the end of the UVA game? Spazesque... Hopefully BC doesn't go after him

 
At 5:17 PM, Blogger del olio said...

After watching this snoozefest of ineptitude (on both sides) for 2 1/2 quarters, I just got up to feel the TV screen because the paint must be dry by now. Nope. Guess I'll continue to watch the paint dry.

 
At 5:32 PM, Blogger EL MIZ said...

Finch now with 115 yards on 16 rushes. good thing we had him benched (and actually on the SCOUT TEAM) for no good reason!!!

SPAZ IS SUCH A LOSER

 
At 5:43 PM, Blogger Walter said...

two blocked kicks?

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

I......despise........Spaz!

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

Rettig needs to be benched. He is horrible today. Hell, give Suntrup a shot and see what he can do.

 
At 5:46 PM, Blogger del olio said...

three tipped ball interceptions. are the throws off? are the routes off? are all bets off?

 
At 5:48 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

Ok BC is all about 4Q comebacks.

/more laughter

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

I......detest.....Spaz!

 
At 5:51 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

My friend thinks BC will keep Spaz for another year. Is that possible? I asked him if he was drunk.

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

Ugly. Can we just kill clock now?

 
At 5:53 PM, Blogger EL MIZ said...

At 5:55 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Ooopan Amidon style!

 
At 5:58 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

They have to go for it on 4th down the rest of the way.

 
At 6:00 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Game over. Have we ever comeback from 17 down in the Spaz era?

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

I want to hunt down and kill that flipping wolf that keeps howling.

 
At 6:30 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

And with that, thankfully, the worst season in 2 decades is over.

 
At 11:57 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

Mod - Gamecock fans were pretty confident going in.

Clemson's schedule was not tough enough, etc., plus SC has pretty stout defense.

I wasn't surprised, although Clemson fans may have been.

ACC needs to toughen up for sure.

When the going got tough today and tonight, FSU and Clemson folded.

Watch the tape of Rettig in this game. He can barely plant his front foot in the ground to follow-through on his throws.

The problem with the team, on the field, is not the quarterback. It is the offensive line. Anyone who is attacking our quarterback really does not know anything about football.

Next season is not going to be much better for him or the program. There are ZERO offensive-linemen in this seasons recruiting class. The existing pipeline looks weak.

Here is a link to Rettig's stats. There is no regression in the numbers. He played better this season than last in terms of passsing the eye test as well.

Remember now his leading receiver was a lightly recruited athlete out of Hotchkiss, he has no running backs of note, no offensive-line and his defense has done nothing in terms of turnovers - he doesn't get any extra possessions.

The most overrated player at BC in the last 30 years was Scott Mutryn by the way.
