In-game comments post: Virginia Tech

Senior Day. I've seen plenty of Senior Days when nothing was on the line and the team played really well. Could it happen today? I am not confident but we can always hope. Leave your comments and thoughts on the game below.

the next bounce that goes the eagle's way this year will be the first one

eagleboston said...

Great play design to Amidon on the TD.

del olio said...

Great sell by deuce

EL MIZ said...

Finch now with 63 yards on just 7 carries. why has he not been used for the last 2 months? oh thats right because we have a completely incompetent head coach named frank spaziani.

agree on the play design -- having amidon in a 3 back set and then racing him out to the flat was hard to defend. nice job martin!

eagleboston said...

Larmond. What an absolute disappointment.

del olio said...

nice job by the defense to get the ball back after the INT

ATL_eagle said...

Chase's stats are not going to reflect the plays our WRs should have made today.

ATL_eagle said...

On TV it looks like the stadium filled in. Any guesses on attendance?

ATL_eagle said...

This drive is critical. It is usually at this point when Spaz teams lose focus.

ATL_eagle said...

Clancy is playing really well today.

eagleboston said...

ATL,

My brother is at Alumni and he estimates 24 k.

ATL_eagle said...

Forget about speed. Spiffy is the bravest punt returner we've had in years.

eagleboston said...

Wow surprised Spaz did not take a knee with only 3:38 left in the half.

ATL_eagle said...

Three runs to Finch...that was a terrible series right there.

eagleboston said...

Well, it's about time for the classic Spaz meltdown before half. BC offense does nothing, is forced to punt. Opposing team takes over with 2 minutes left and scores as the half ends.

EL MIZ said...

wow BC going to the prevent D in the 2 minute drill.

does Spaz have a memory? or is every week just a blank slate of awful ideas without the associated memories of past failure?

eagleboston said...

Nice play and tackle by Manny.

del olio said...

big play by asprilla

del olio said...

CLANCY

eagleboston said...

Did Spaz get electroshock therapy after the ND game? No defensive meltdown, offense being aggressive. Amazing!

EL MIZ said...

OMG a 2-minute drill? will we punch it in here or take a knee to set up a field goal?

EL MIZ said...

sign of a Spaz-coached team: calling a timeout after you get the first-down on the 2-minute drill.

how's spaz supposed to know the clock stops after the first?

del olio said...

rettig decisions here hurt

eagleboston said...

Rettig!!! Why are you taking a sack there???

eagleboston said...

We really needed a TD there.

ATL_eagle said...

Freese did a good job to stay focused. A lot harder than it looks. Especially when you considered VT jumped offsides.

EL MIZ said...

well i am happy that was actually ran a 2-minute drill. i'll take 3 points over 0 points.

13-3 going into the half, alright Eagles. proud of the players continuing to play hard even with a lost season.

eagleboston said...

Mumble, mumble, grumble, grumble. Worst halftime interview coach in the nation.

ATL_eagle said...

The D played well -- other than one fluke play. Rettig was ok. Duece was good and the WRs hurt the team.

del olio said...

I'd add to that ATL, the special teams paly was solid.

ATL_eagle said...

For those not following other games, Montel Harris is having a career day against Army.

eagleboston said...

Did someone say special teams play was solid?

del olio said...

haha ... was

ATL_eagle said...

VT made this a game without playing particularly well coming out of the half.

eagleboston said...

Beamer is a master at halftime adjustments. How many times over the past 15 years has he flat-out out-coached the BC staff at the intermission?

eagleboston said...

6 sacks!! The devastation of O-line U under Spaz should be reason enough to can his ass.

del olio said...

was that a 10 yard punt?

eagleboston said...

Switch to Spaz putting his head in his palm.

bc1900 said...

Montel Harris has over 350 yds rushing and 7 touchdowns today.

EL MIZ said...

Finch is far and away our 2nd best offensive threat behind Amidon. why has he been on the bench for the past 2 months Spaz?????

ATL_eagle said...

I have a feeling this will come down to a Freese fg at the end

eagleboston said...

O Line U fail yet again.

eagleboston said...

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

eagleboston said...

ATL, it's off Freese and on Rettig now.

EL MIZ said...

nice return from Spiffy, nice playcall from Martin on the reverse.

a legitimate D-1 coaching staff could win 8 games with this team next year.

EL MIZ said...

Dudeck with a great cutback. BOOM!

eagleboston said...

Nice drive!!!

ATL_eagle said...

Huge answer. Come on D!

eagleboston said...

Why did BC not call a timeout after the 2nd down play?

eagleboston said...

I bet Spaz takes a knee

EL MIZ said...

this is pathetic SPAZ YOU ARE THE WORST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

EL MIZ said...

running a draw on 1st down is just SO STUPID. either knee it out and go to OT or OPEN IT UP. running a draw makes no sense -- no big play ability while having the risk of a fumble. unbelievable SPAZ YOU SUCK

eagleboston said...

I......hate......Spaz.

bc1900 said...

what an embarassment

Joe said...

Coach Coward--the epitome of why he should be fired.

mod34b said...

Ok. I did watch. Second half :-)

But WTF. Was that!!! Don 't try to win go for OT??

Cowardice extraordinaire

mod34b said...

Gutless

eagleboston said...

Classic BC meltdown. That can't win a fixed game at this point.

mod34b said...

Now it wil be VT blitz, blitz, blitz.

eagleboston said...

Anyone think we can pull this out? This has got to be in the heads of the BC losers.

eagleboston said...

They literally don't know how to win.

bc1900 said...

Is finch hurt, why is dudeck in

ATL_eagle said...

This is painful

bc1900 said...

Hilarious, dudeck. you knew the game would end this way, it has become comedy now.

EL MIZ said...

good to see Spaz playing it safe worked out.

wait, it never has.

Bates should announce Spaz will be fired after the season and have him coach the last game against NC State.

eagleboston said...

Defense played great most of the game and just gave it away the last 2 drives. I don't know why I am so sick about this as we were not playing for anything but I guess I am a diehard. I'm just sick right now. So disappointed.

Maybe it is good we lost as I could imagine Bates being pressured to keep Spaz for one more year. Now, he has to fire this assclown, right?

dixieagle said...

What a totally predictable, soul-sucking SpazFest this was. You just KNEW it would end like that once he chickened out at the end of regulation. What a complete loser he is. FIRE HIM already!!!

EL MIZ said...

Montel Harris is trending on Twitter. he scored 7 TDs against Army, a team that our entire offense scored 4 TDs against.

this has become such a joke. 0 chance i watch even a minute of NC State game. i'm done w/ BC football until Spaz is fired.

Benjamin said...

Eagleboston,

I know why I'm sick. Even when Spaz literally has nothing to lose, he still plays not to win.

Kneeling with a 1:15, Spaz gave up. He told his players rather than giving them every opportunity to win, he was going to give the opportunity back to VT.

He didn't trust our players to score. In giving up and kneeling, he showed he had more faith in VT's defense than he did his own offense.

And that makes me sick: A football coach that has more faith in the other team than his own.

Here's the truth: Spaz lost this game. He gave it to VT. Our players never even had a chance to win, because the coach wouldn't let them.

mod34b said...

So freakin' Spaz. He has taught BC to lose. He probably think OT is some kind of accomplishment. Even the final few plays were gutless.

But Bates is gutless too. One more week of Spaz

bc1900 said...

Team should just boycott spaz next weekend. Chase should call all his own plays, what a joke this has become. If BC dropped football as a sport I really wouldn't care a bit.

eagleboston said...

I agree Dixie. Why play it safe when you only have 2 wins and nothing on the line? And this chucklehead loser has yet to run a fake on special teams in 4 years. Unbelievable! I literally hate the man.

And get used to this gang. Spaz has so completely decimated this program, that I predict we will not cross the 3-win barrier for at least 3 years. The new coach (I'm hoping) will have to clear the decks of this loser mentality and unfortunately, that is going to take some time. A new coach will give us hope, but don't expect wins until he can get some talent to come to the Heights.

bc1900 said...

We should just join the Patriot League along with BU if this is the future. The talent of football and bball is much more fitted to that league.
