For those there: how is the weather?

Big Jack Krack said...

Sunny and warm at the moment - zero wind right now.

Looks like a small crowd day, unfortunately.

Red Sox playoff game at 5:30 equals no BC coverage or very little.

Big Jack Krack said...

Howell is our best punter - in practice anyway.

Big Jack Krack said...

Kimble is practicing. Army in all white with black trim.

We are practicing 40 yard passes to the endzone just before the pre-game break.

EL MIZ said...

love the BJK inside scoop.

i'm surprised Kimble is practicing. i haven't heard much about him and was wondering if he'd get a medical red shirt for this year. a Williams-Kimble-Willis rotation would be interesting.

Big Jack Krack said...

Late arriving crowd as usual - pathetic.

Only a handful of cadets unfortunately.

About 5K in the stands right now. Dead feeling - no spirit.

Big Jack Krack said...

We kickoff in front of 10K

ATL_eagle said...

This has been too easy for Army.

eagleboston said...

The local alumni really piss me off. Get out and support this team! The Red Sox don't play until well after this game is finished. Big Jack, I applaud you for traveling all the way from the Carolinas for this game. It's a shame the people living 10 miles away don't exhibit the same support.

eagleboston said...

Is Wolford hurt?

ChrisB said...

Must be prime apple picking

Big Jack Krack said...

Pathetic

ATL_eagle said...

Is anyone else having ESPN3 issues? Mine keeps freezing.

Big Jack Krack said...

Spaz defense today - bad news

EL MIZ said...

mine's streaming fine ATL

eagleboston said...

My streaming is surprisingly very good today.

Not liking the way the BC defensive front is getting pushed around. Spaz's recruiting focus must be on getting better defenders.

ChrisB said...

Well, neither defense can stop the other

ATL_eagle said...

This is terrible. I understand assignment football against the option, but someone has got to make a big play. Army is moving it at will.

Big Jack Krack said...

Ramsey is needed instead of standing on the sideline with his helmet off.

Coach Brown is a no show so far. D is incapable of stopping Army at this point.

ATL_eagle said...

The offense is doing its job. No complaints there. Now it is on the D.

marcus elysee said...

I can see williams playing on sundays

ATL_eagle said...

That was finally a drive where were played well and overpowered them.

eagleboston said...

Finally got a stop. The good news is they cannot stop our offense.

marcus elysee said...

Do we have any impact receivers coming next year?? THats one area that we cant ever recruit

ATL_eagle said...

Can Andre Williams play Army every week?

Danny Boy said...

Andre Williams is the biggest threat to our defense. They're going to ask him to take a knee after gaining 10 yards just so they can get a breather.

EL MIZ said...

Andre is a man. he looks like a totally different back. legit NFL prospect. hopefully Coach Brown can figure out how to stop the triple option and we can cruise to an easy W

EL MIZ said...

FSU beating Maryland 35-0. did we wake up FSU, or can we compete with Maryland?

ATL_eagle said...

Addazio using his Timeouts to preserve time for us. Encouraging.

Big Jack Krack said...

Need a stop here.

Danny Boy said...

That is some absolutely terrible clock management. Daz should have called timeout immediately on the 3rd down stop. And they need to move with some urgency.

eagleboston said...

Wow, what a kick by Freese! That is a weapon we have not had in years!

EL MIZ said...

Freese is going to be a kicker in the NFL. what a versatile weapon.

the failure to use a timeout was bizarre. BC should've scored a tut.

Big Jack Krack said...

I agree Danny but we'll take the 50yard fg.

eagleboston said...

That was frustrating time management at the end of the half, but is anyone else just delighted that we did not take a knee and actually went for it? We all need to appreciate this new era where 48 seconds is an opportunity, not just a way to get into the locker room quicker.

ATL_eagle said...

The D seems to be adjusting.

ChrisB said...

Unlike last week

eagleboston said...

Maryland down by 42 to Florida State. Did State improve that much in one week, or are we perhaps better than we thought?

EL MIZ said...

Willis is a weapon on the kick returns. the first time he ever returned kicks was last week. reminds me of a more versatile Jeff Smith (who remembers him?).

hoping we can pull away in the 3rd and check out Bordner and some other backups in the 4th.

EL MIZ said...

eagle boston -- i think its a bit of both. we played a good game against FSU, and they are playing better this week.

eagleboston said...

They are celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the Emerald Isle Classic (even though the game was played in November). I remember waking up early to watch the game on ESPN. My future wife was a BC flag girl (I guess the PC term is color guard) and after a BC touchdown, they filmed her dancing with some other members of her squad in the endzone. I believe it was the first college game played in Europe. It was a dark era for BC football, so it was a bowl game atmosphere.

eagleboston said...

Who is the color commentator? He is actually pretty good for ESPN3 but not sure about the bald pony tail look.

eagleboston said...

Dang, they finally stopped us. Good adjustments by their D.

ATL_eagle said...

Not how we wanted to start the half.

ATL_eagle said...

I cannot believe the big plays we've allowed on D. How can we not run down Army players?

Big Jack Krack said...

This defense is scary bad today - really miss Mehdi and Kaleb apparently has the day off. Our interior line is not up to the task.

Bad kickoff play.

eagleboston said...

With our Shit defense, BC needs to score on every possession. Rettig needs to step up his play. We need more downfield passing to get their D out of the box.

eagleboston said...

Amidon looks slow today. He must be hurt.

I will say it again, Day needs to open things up.

eagleboston said...

Illegal formation?? That is inexcusable!

eagleboston said...

Thank you, Ryan!

eagleboston said...

I think if we can get one more stop, we will win this game. The scary thing is, we may not get one more stop.

ATL_eagle said...

Need a three and out from the D now. I know this sounds silly but I don't want this coming down to the last possession.

eagleboston said...

Between Freese's kick and Ramsey's offsides, we just gave Army 15 yards.

eagleboston said...

Why are we calling a timeout now? We may regret that late in the 4th quarter.

Big Jack Krack said...

Ramsey made a big difference in the middle.

Benjamin said...

I would like to see Spiffy just explode off a punt return and score.

ATL_eagle said...

Benjamin:

At least they are throwing to Spiffy.

Benjamin said...

ATL -
True. I'm listnening online, it sounded like the Spiffy drop hurt. Was it defended well?

eagleboston said...

My stream just went blue screen of death and now there is a message saying ESPN3 is experiencing technical difficulties.

eagleboston said...

Spiffy did not drop the pass. Rettig under-threw the pass and it was knocked down at the goal line by an Army defender.

Benjamin said...

Thanks Eagleboston. Based on what I've heard, I'm very excited for the future with Myles.

Our D is going to need work.

Big Jack Krack said...

Addazio led the team to the opposite side at the end of the third.

We would like a first down.

ATL_eagle said...

Getting Technical Difficulty messages from ESPN 3 now.

eagleboston said...

Really, really wanted a touchdown there.

eagleboston said...

Freese 6 for 6 on field goals this year. The true test will be if he can kick a game-winning FG.

eagleboston said...

I think Williams just tied the BC touchdown record with 5. Montel William held the record.

eagleboston said...

I meant Harris.

Big Jack Krack said...

Andre is 7 yards from the record.

ATL_eagle said...

Bordner time?

Big Jack Krack said...

After this series - fans already filing out - unreal.

Benjamin said...

BJK, seeing as it is homecoming weekend, the only excuse is that maybe people want to get ready for the dance? Or that maybe there's a Sox game tonight?

eagleboston said...

I thought Harris had over 300 yards once?

ATL_eagle said...

I know we faced their backup QB, but we were much better on defense in the second half.

Benjamin said...

Eagleboston, that was at Temple.

eagleboston said...

ESPN 3 is a piece of crap. Out again.

eagleboston said...

I feel like I am trying to watch TV in 1956.

Big Jack Krack said...

Did Andre get the record? If not, he should have been in during the last series.

Big Jack Krack said...

Both teams stayed for each others alma mater

eagleboston said...

We have now exceeded our win total from last year. Now, let's get 3 more.

eagleboston said...

Based on the post game interview, I don't think Daz was aware of the rushing record and how close Williams was to the record.

Erik said...

Even if Addazio didn't know our record, Ryan Day should have had an idea since he was here to see Montel vs NCSU.

mmason said...

If Rettig can throw a few accurate passes, Andre can run all day...I want to believe...
