In-game comments post: Wake Forest

Wake games are never dull. This matchup means a lot to both teams, so I expect this game to be crazy too. Leave your thoughts and comments below.

This is a biggie to set the tone for the season...we need it. Let's go Eagles!

ATL_eagle said...

Great start. Great block by Spiffy on the TD.

ATL_eagle said...

It seems like we have a better feel for this style of offense. Maybe Nova (with their spread option) was a good team to start the season.

Bravesbill said...

Well we are back to running up the middle on third down and short on offense and allowing huge 3rd and long conversions on defense.

ATL_eagle said...

That wasn't as good. Need to do a better job on 3rd downs. But that was also just a nice throw and catch on their TD. Hard to stop that.

Bravesbill said...

They completed a long 3rd down to start the drive too.

ATL_eagle said...

Liked the aggressive down field throws. The Wolford drop was a killer.

mmason said...

WF/BC games are always wacky...but it's great to see us fired up and throwing downfield. We need some work tonight on toughness and execution. Wake is not Villanova...but ain't fumble recoveries sweet?

ATL_eagle said...

Like Chase's decisiveness so far. He is looking for big plays.

mmason said...

Is it my optimistic vision for greater & loftier days in our future, or do our cheerleaders look like they all transferred to BC from FSU? However, Chase Rettig's play tonight is no illusion, that's for sure.He's throwin' shots. (We've got a 105 degree heat wave going on here today so I'm just doing a few hallucination checks to validate what I'm seeing in HD...)

Bravesbill said...

I am loving the aggressiveness on first and second down on both the offense and defense. They get conservative on third though. As for the cheerleaders, I had the exact opposite thought haha.

ATL_eagle said...

A little too cute with the fleaflicker.

Bravesbill said...

Great play call, terrible throw

Bravesbill said...

Amidon was wide open. Just severely underthrown.

mmason said...

Great sack for the big fella!

ATL_eagle said...

I love watching Al Washington get excited on the sidelines.

mmason said...

Is all this offensive signal chaos and sputtering from Wake before the snap making anyone crazy... Andre finally gets a block from the O line and gets some yards.

Bravesbill said...

Jesus, the BC line is just falling apart.

Bravesbill said...

Fucking line

ATL_eagle said...

Somewhere Spaz is shaking his head thinking they should've taken a knee.

mmason said...

Wow--what an amazing clusterbleep that was...a blocked punt? Special team's falling asleep at the wheel bigtime.

mmason said...

If Spaz is shaking his head we would all hear the ballbearings rattling. We just stopped Wake at the goal!!
Well,thjat's something to make us Believe in BC again...Wow. Go Eagles!

Big Jack Krack said...

The fans who stayed away from this game suck.

Bravesbill said...

Huge goal line stand! This defense looks so much better.

Bravesbill said...

Wow, it's so refreshing to hear Daz compared to Spaz. He took responsibility instead of blaming his players too.

mod34b said...

Wow. That was a crazy half.

More than happy to be up by 10 - Obviously

Who are we??? The fifty faces of BC - some great, some putrid . It's college football!!

mod34b said...

Wake's #50 Whitlock is a Pre-season All-American

Hint to Special teams:block #50.

Got it?

Scott said...

Pretty cool to have a coach willing to put on the line, take responsibility, and give some awesome half time comments. Who wouldn't want to play for him. Intense and fun.

mmason said...

It's so refreshing to hear the BC Head Coach be positive, talk with a tone that's affirming about the kids, applaud the goal line stand and take the hit as a coach for calling a play that didn't work...It's the complete reverse of every Spaz comment ever made. It's badly needed Oxygen.

ATL_eagle said...

We should be up by more. Left a lot of points on the field. Now we need to improve in the second half.

Bravesbill said...

I'm not liking this designed roll out for Rettig. He's not fast enough and our line isn't good enough for it to work. I don't think Rettig has completed a pass yet on these roll outs.

Unknown said...

Offense sputtering...we need to throw a wrinkle in there...reverse to Spiffy?

mod34b said...

Agree with unknown

Does Ryan Day have any creativity?

Bravesbill said...

Has Spaz decided to take over the offense now? Good Lord.

mod34b said...

mmason said...

Does Rettig look tentative, almost shaky--lost that ballsy, let it rip attitude ever since the long bomb pick?

Bravesbill said...

He really hasn't had the chance to pass much since the pick. It's been basically all runs this half with a few roll outs.

mmason said...

Andre is working it!!

Unknown said...

Ok, forget the reverse, let's just run it down their throats! Is Patchan ok?? We need him

mod34b said...

I guess with Andre and OL (yes! Can you believe it??) manhandling WF, no creativity is needed.

A great smash-mouth drive!

John Zerillo said...

Can the defense hold?

Big Jack Krack said...

Patchan is sitting on the bench looking unhappy.

mod34b said...

Help. I am thinking like Spaz.

Run out clock

ATL_eagle said...

Need the defense to hold here.

ATL_eagle said...

BTW, the defense has been much better so far tonight.

mmason said...

Our deep covers are not hanging tough down field. Its a problem that a USC will exploit all night...

Unknown said...

Let's go D! Stop them again here!

ATL_eagle said...

I admire Grobe and think he's a great coach, but he looks like he is asleep tonight.

mod34b said...

USC hee hee

ATL_eagle said...

Jack:

FYI, Patchan has a hip injury.

mod34b said...

Yes Grobe seems off

mmason said...

Campanero is a dangerous guy. He's all they got.

ATL_eagle said...

How did we not tackle him behind the line on that one?

mmason said...

THE D LINE HAS BEEN REMARKABLE.

Big Jack Krack said...

I am about to lose power but all hats off to our BC team

Big Jack Krack said...

Again fans who did not show suck

Big Jack Krack said...

Fans leaving early unbelievable

mmason said...

The Eagle Walk thing, the vibe of the team, the whole Addazio gung ho approach is just a great energy for this team that was deep in the dark last year. It's Light and Respectful and traditional stuff. Love it love it love it. The big tests are coming but this is a great start.

ATL_eagle said...

Chase has been limping for a while now. Let's hope it is not serious.

mod34b said...

Tick tick tick .......

mod34b said...

Chase seemed quasi gimpy last year too.


This is agony now.

Tick tick tick

ATL_eagle said...

Edebali is really coming into his own. Covering a lot of ground.

AlbanyEagle said...

Daniels blows

mmason said...

Edibali has that relentless predator pursuit that we haven't seen since the pros took WonderBoy...

mod34b said...

Tanner Price sulks like Jimmy Clausen

Bravesbill said...

Wow, just noticed that Rettig has completed only 7 passes for only 123 yards. Could have sworn it was more.

ATL_eagle said...

Great night for Williams. Making good decisions and running well.

mmason said...

Rettig is hurting...

Kevin A said...

Get Williams out of the game

ATL_eagle said...

Not perfect, but another solid effort.

Team is much improved. Coach gives a damn. Defense played great. Offense needs some work, and we are very thin in terms of talent, but I like where we are headed.
