A Boston College sports blog capturing the highs and lows of being a BC fan living 1,000 miles from Chestnut Hill.
Not how you want to start things.
Not a good start to the Daz era. Fake punt for TD. Brutal. Alumni vacant.No need to panic yet.
Holy sh@tWhat a bad start
agreed you can't start much worse, but let's be patient. The O goes to work now.
Umm, Wtf? Thank God my hopes haven't gotten up too high. Losing this game would be worse than Spaz....at least he never lost to an FCS team ha.
We are not punting? Yeah! Spaz has officially been exorcised.
Love the call going for it on 4th down. Playing to win.
Love the call going for it on 4th down. Refreshing to see a coach who is not afraid to play to win.
Addazio getting his first taste of Ron Cherry.
Great call to the fullback! Love Day's play-calling on that drive!
Well the offense looks pretty good...defense still looks terrible.
I know Daz wants balnce but Rettig just showed we need to put the season on his shoulders.
Going for it on 4th down at the 50. Mix of the run and pass. TD on the 1st drive of the season. BC football is fun again!!
Geez my internet sucks...sorry for the double
1st game of the season. At home. Against a NC school people have actually heard of and no one shows.
This is an absolute joke....Wasn't Brown supposed to be some defensive guru?
Good fumble. So far, I'm happy with the offense. Defense needs some tweaking.
I stand corrected. Defense needs a lot of tweaking.
Total confusion on D.
Some tweaking? Defense needs to be blown up.
The broadcast quality is poor.
That's going to leave a mark
I don't think we should expect miracles from Brown. He has nothing t work with in terms of talent. Nothing. Spaz destroyed that defense.
Other than looking slow and small on defense, I think that unit can really flourish against other FCS teams.
Nova gonna take a 2 TD lead here soon
I didn't think the defense could be worse than last year...I stand corrected. This performance should pour cold water on all those Bowl dreams we have this year.
Finally, a stop by this defense.
I know Daz wants to run the ball, but it appears we have had very good success with the pass. He might want to turn Rettig loose.
Well the offense is sputtering now. Horrible play calling that series.
Student section full half at best everywhere else
I was trying to caution people all off season about hopes for this team. This is a turn-around project. While there is a path to 6 wins, 4 is most likely with this team. Daz does not even get his first class on campus until next fall and they will only be freshmen. It may be year 3 before we get to a bowl again. Be patient, folks and look for small positives as this year progresses.
We're not going to rock out the AdvoCare V100 bowl with blitz pick-ups like that. Where will those 650 fans go in mid-December if not Detroit?
TWO SACKS. TWOOO!!!
"Wow, what a crowd at Alumni!" said no one ever.
You're right, ATL, Rettig is only one who showed up to play. If you can't run the ball against 'Nova, you cannot run it against anyone.
Can we just start airing the damn ball out? We are fooling no one running. Shades of the TOB offense.
If Nova scores here, we are toast
Block in the Back, look we can see it on replay, too. Looks like the ACC refs have not changed.
I can only imagine what real offenses are going to do to us this year.
Need to keep it to FG
This team sucks. Back to the drawing board.
Our Superfans are Super Quiet. I think I just heard a discussion about the Pope in section 211. Is a moustache a pre-requisite for our DC job? Villanova is faster than us. I will now start drinking.
I hope Brown is practicing new schemes and that is why the defense is giving up big plays. But. Probably not
Well, we had a chance to hire a real Coach, and instead we went to the Dollar Store and bought Temple's coach. Good lesson for all BC's future business people, don't cheap out on the initial buy.
Dazz actually looks a little confused as a game coach
The most disappointed I've been in a LONG time. All my hope for this upcoming season is 100% gone. We look terrible.
Too many "dudes," too few football players. Welp, five more minutes until redtube.com.
One day when we are hoisting that coveted Orange Bowl trophy, we will look back on this sad day and chuckle. It'll be 2072, but chuckle we will.
Big MO swings BC way
Wow, Nova should have kicked the field goal. They gave us a break.
Ok, so here's some analysis that is not snide or snarky. The coaching should not matter that much in this game. We "should" be overwhelming Villanova with size and speed. However, since that is not happening, either 1 of 2 things is going on, either we do not have the size and speed anymore or our players quite literally do not care and are not trying. It all comes back to the man at the top. Either he did not recruit well or he cannot motivate. But, wasn't this guy supposed to be a highly animated, good recruiter? It's like I am taking crazy pills.
this game is boring.
Nova had to go for the jugular there. Even though they didn't get it, they will still have great field possession when BC inevitably goes 3 and out once again.
Pass the damn ball!
Ever since the first drive, Rettig has looked like shit.
How the hell was the BC offense so much better last year under Spaz?!
OK let's not have a Spaz classic where the defense gives up a TD right before half.
We needed a pick 6, but nice job nonetheless.
Ha Daz is lowering his head like Spaz.
Some of you clearly are idiots when you discuss college football. Someone commented about Daz's recruiting. Those players are not on campus yet, you moron. These are Spaz's players. Further, you don't take a 2-10 team and make them great in 1 game. They don't know how to win. Teaching that and instilling that in a team accustomed to losing takes time. I don't understand the expectations some of you have for this team. This is a 3-year turn-around process. The next 2 years will be rough. Deal with it!
We have a vertical passing game if you tilt the field sideways.
I like it when someone said we don't have size and speed "anymore."
If you think BC should be losing to Nova at half, you're kidding yourself BC. Yes, most people had ridiculously high expectations for BC which is absurd. However, BC should never be down to Nova at the half no matter whose players are on the field. This is unacceptable and why I'm pissed off, even when I had low expectations coming into the season.
That was a terrible half but we can and should regroup.
er that was for EB
If BC can't beat Nova, who can they beat this year? Maybe New Mexico State? Army would kill them with the option....again.
This is the same damn playcalling as TOB and Spaz. Good Lord.
So, someone with a brain was allowed to talk at halftime, nice going.
He was finally able to air it out downfield....only took 2 quarters to set up the deep playaction.
Great route by Amidon
What is that now, 3 3rd and 14 conversions already for Nova?
Another NO-Call Holding, I'm seeing a pattern. Nice stuff on 3rd and short.
Bravesbill, I agree that BC should never lose to 'Nova. However, the reality is BC was one of the worst teams in FBS last year and 'Nova was one of the best in FCS. There is not that big of a gap between these teams. This is Spaz's fault, not Addazio and we have to give him time to turn this around. His recruiting class is excellent, but they will not be on campus until next fall. Let him turn this thing around.
I'd agree with you there EB about Daz's players/recruiting. However, like I said, with the players BC has now, it should never have been losing. Terrible playcalling on both sides of the ball have made this close. Case in point: this last damn pass on 3rd down.
Why do you run a route on 3rd down in front of the sticks? Frustrating.
Wolford has been the surprise of the day.
Nova defense looks to be gassed. BC defense needs to continue to hold.
Agree, ATL, Wolford has been terrific.Amidon has 10 catches and is on pace for one of the best performances by a wide receiver this week.
Any guesses on attendence?
Are we talking tickets sold or actual butts in seats?
Vardaro has been terrible
So no calls all game, and now that we're about to shut the door, suddenly it's Christmas.
What a moron
Vardaro is an absolute idiot. All he had to do was stand in front of the guy. Stupid, stupid penalty.
That was a pretty legit penalty ForMen....just a really dumb and unecessary one. Is he really all we have?
Bad call. Was not a penalty
Dude definitely went low at the knees. How was that not a penalty mod?
Vardaro was high on body. Target backpedaled.
Vardaro turned around and blocked at the knees. The defender tried to jump over him. He didn't go high at all. Bench him for the rest of the game. He already had a dumb penalty in the first half.
Let's wait to see replay
My point BBill, was that the flags have been stowed all game, during a lot of blatant penalties, but now that we have a chance to put this game in hand, the flags are a flying. You're right, it was callable, but given their penchant for No-Calling this game, I am left wondering "What changed their minds now?"
A better question is "Who cares?"they are the same dumb, tobacco-road refs we've always had. There's a reason they have not been called up.
Ron cherry is why
Really? A run up the middle on 3rd and 9? Way to go for the kill Daz.
BC has been flagged ForMen...Nova seems to have avoided flags the entire game lol.
One striking difference from last year. Clearly, the BC coaching staff made some halftime adjustments and BC has played much better in the 2nd half.
The linebackers have been the weak link today.
Way to go for that FG Daz...
Nice hit...liking the more aggressive defense this half.
Escaping by skin of our teeth
Man, I forgot how good a win feels! It's a long road, but at least we are on the road back! Beat Wake!
I'm happy for the team. Some payoff for all their hard work.
