A Boston College sports blog capturing the highs and lows of being a BC fan living 1,000 miles from Chestnut Hill.
This is a biggie to set the tone for the season...we need it. Let's go Eagles!
Great start. Great block by Spiffy on the TD.
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.
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.
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.
They completed a long 3rd down to start the drive too.
Liked the aggressive down field throws. The Wolford drop was a killer.
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?
Like Chase's decisiveness so far. He is looking for big plays.
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...)
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.
A little too cute with the fleaflicker.
Great play call, terrible throw
Amidon was wide open. Just severely underthrown.
Great sack for the big fella!
I love watching Al Washington get excited on the sidelines.
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.
Jesus, the BC line is just falling apart.
Somewhere Spaz is shaking his head thinking they should've taken a knee.
Wow--what an amazing clusterbleep that was...a blocked punt? Special team's falling asleep at the wheel bigtime.
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!
The fans who stayed away from this game suck.
Huge goal line stand! This defense looks so much better.
Wow, it's so refreshing to hear Daz compared to Spaz. He took responsibility instead of blaming his players too.
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!!
Wake's #50 Whitlock is a Pre-season All-AmericanHint to Special teams:block #50. Got it?
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.
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.
We should be up by more. Left a lot of points on the field. Now we need to improve in the second half.
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.
Offense sputtering...we need to throw a wrinkle in there...reverse to Spiffy?
Agree with unknownDoes Ryan Day have any creativity?
Has Spaz decided to take over the offense now? Good Lord.
Does Rettig look tentative, almost shaky--lost that ballsy, let it rip attitude ever since the long bomb pick?
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.
Andre is working it!!
Ok, forget the reverse, let's just run it down their throats! Is Patchan ok?? We need him
I guess with Andre and OL (yes! Can you believe it??) manhandling WF, no creativity is needed. A great smash-mouth drive!
Can the defense hold?
Patchan is sitting on the bench looking unhappy.
Help. I am thinking like Spaz. Run out clock
Need the defense to hold here.
BTW, the defense has been much better so far tonight.
Our deep covers are not hanging tough down field. Its a problem that a USC will exploit all night...
Let's go D! Stop them again here!
I admire Grobe and think he's a great coach, but he looks like he is asleep tonight.
USC hee hee
Jack:FYI, Patchan has a hip injury.
Yes Grobe seems off
Campanero is a dangerous guy. He's all they got.
How did we not tackle him behind the line on that one?
THE D LINE HAS BEEN REMARKABLE.
I am about to lose power but all hats off to our BC team
Again fans who did not show suck
Fans leaving early unbelievable
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.
Chase has been limping for a while now. Let's hope it is not serious.
Tick tick tick .......
Chase seemed quasi gimpy last year too.This is agony now. Tick tick tick
Edebali is really coming into his own. Covering a lot of ground.
Edibali has that relentless predator pursuit that we haven't seen since the pros took WonderBoy...
Tanner Price sulks like Jimmy Clausen
Wow, just noticed that Rettig has completed only 7 passes for only 123 yards. Could have sworn it was more.
Great night for Williams. Making good decisions and running well.
Rettig is hurting...
Get Williams out of the game
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.
