In-game comments post: Clemson

Death Valley has been the scene for some of my favorite BC games (2005 and 2007) and some of the most painful (rain delay in 2009 and the onesided game in 2011). Let's hope this one falls into the great moments. Leave your thoughts and comments below.

07 was the best. matt ryan to gunnell for the victory TD. clemson dropped a hailmary at the 5 yard line then missed a 50+ yarder. we went to the ACCCG after that.

take me back.

I was at the game (working for the team) in 2005. My boss repeatedly had to tell me to calm down on the sideline for getting to into the game. Best football game I ever experienced live, and the people down there are amazing. I'm actually not going to the BC gamewatch today... I'm going to the Clemson one in my town!

blist said...

That rain delay was 2009?! Man, that was the day I knew in my gut Spaz was a failure

Benjamin said...

I don't know what it is, but I've got a good feeling about this game.

eagleboston said...

Wow, the game just got switched from the deuce to ESPN. On the big stage today!

eagleboston said...

We got away with pass interference there.

ATL_eagle said...

The play action was perfect.

eagleboston said...

Now ESPN just switched it back to ESPN 2. Really screwing with the DVR folks.

PLay action working awesome!

ATL_eagle said...

No points but a positive drive.

eagleboston said...

Bullshit! That was un-catchable.

eagleboston said...

Love Addazio! I can't believe so many whined about his hire. This team is clearly improving week by week. And I just love his enthusiasm.

ATL_eagle said...

The d is confusing Boyd.

Benjamin said...

Overall, I think it was solid quarter for us. The penalties are just getting out of hand. The refs need to scale it back.

eagleboston said...

I'll take that for a first quarter. No matter the outcome, at least this BC team is going toe to toe and playing to win.

Benjamin said...

Also, I want to see Addazio turn into the Hulk. That and BC win, would make my day.

eagleboston said...

Benjamin, the conspiracy theorist in me is thinking the refs really don't want anything to hamper the ACC appearing on the national stage next week. Do not count on any breaks from the refs today.

Benjamin said...

THAT. WAS. AWESOME.

ATL_eagle said...

Willis made that happen. Great call. Great run.

Benjamin said...

Eagleboston, I totally agree with you about the conspiracy theory. An ACC team in the NC would be great, but they've got to earn it.

eagleboston said...

Love Myles!!!!

John said...

Awesome start!

Benjamin said...

Loving the game Brown is calling.

Benjamin said...

Fumble!

eagleboston said...

Is anyone else's feed scrambled?

Legal Eagle said...

Willis run was awesome but that was also a great play call. This is the most creative Ryan Day has ever been. He has Rettig looking good again and is using the Clemson athleticism against them.

Benjamin said...

EB, my feed is good. Got to hold them here.

ATL_eagle said...

Dudeck has got to get that first down. Don't mind the punt call by Daz there.

ATL_eagle said...

Clemson is getting way too cute with their playcalling.

Benjamin said...

ATL, I don't mind cute if it works in our favor.

ATL_eagle said...

Good call on the shovel. Bad execution.

eagleboston said...

Can't turn the ball over to Clemson. This is how routs start.

Very, very disappointing.

John said...

terrible call on 3rd down!

Benjamin said...

We'll take it!!

John said...

Fumble! Clemson looks terrible and I love it!

eagleboston said...

Fumble!!!!!!!

ATL_eagle said...

Need points on this drive.

eagleboston said...

Two turnovers and BC cannot capitalize. You have to get points off turnovers when you are a major underdog. Still feel good, but this has that feeling similar to Florida State where you are just waiting for Clemson to explode.

ATL_eagle said...

McDowell for Clemson is having a heck of a game.

eagleboston said...

Hats off to this much-maligned defense. They are playing out of their minds today.

John said...

Oh god Williams is down.

ATL_eagle said...

That was a pass.

eagleboston said...

Not sure about that 2nd down call.

eagleboston said...

Shitty punt by Freese set all of this up.

ATL_eagle said...

Good half. Need one more.

eagleboston said...

Clemson 272 yards, BC just 168. We are extremely lucky Clemson has shot themselves in the foot so many times. I doubt they will have another half like that. The BC offense is going to have to step up if we have any hope of victory.

eagleboston said...

Rettig has got to have better situational awareness. You cannot waste timeouts in close games. That is going to come back to haunt BC.

Bravesbill said...

We need a play action on first down. Everyone knows BC is running up the middle on first down. This play calling is way too conservative. Playing not to lose.

eagleboston said...

Why doesn't Rettig ever throw the ball away??

Benjamin said...

ALJ has not been the player we hoped he would be.

eagleboston said...

Well it was fun while it lasted. The way our offense is playing, I think we are done (although maybe the deficit will force us to open things up like at Florida State).

Gilmore can't believe we were so stupid to stay in man-to-man defense.

ATL_eagle said...

The O needs to step up now. Cannot win games with just seven points.

SLeBC02 said...

Perfect throw

ATL_eagle said...

Great call against eight in the box.

Benjamin said...

Addazio has this team competing. I absolutely love it.

ATL_eagle said...

I'm holding up four fingers at my house.

Unknown said...

Love how hard we are playing, and how aggressive. Let's go for the jugular and finish it!

John said...

Can we come back?

Benjamin said...

That may be a costly mistake by Rettig. We need to come out and score quickly.

John said...

How does a senior make a bone headed play like that? The final score will probably make the game not look close. Ugh!

ATL_eagle said...

Terrible play by Rettig. Get rid of it well before they close in. Now it is on him to respond.

ATL_eagle said...

To say this play is huge is an understatement.

Benjamin said...

Big stop on D. They are the stars of the game.

ATL_eagle said...

I hate burning the timeouts but we need to get things right.

SLeBC02 said...

He has to go for it here?

ATL_eagle said...

I think Dabo is managing the clock worse than Daz.

ATL_eagle said...

This drive has been bad coaching and execution.

SLeBC02 said...

I have never seen anything like that. Just awful. He must have taken BC with the points

John said...

I can say I am proud of BC again. Can't wait to see where this team is two to three years.

ChrisB said...

Victory formation: in the end, the Tigers deserve it

Joseph said...

bs atl the players and coaches did a great job
