In-game comments post: Syracuse

This season has gone by fast. That tends to happen when things are going well. But Heismans and better bowls won't happen if we don't beat Syracuse. Let's hope the guys are ready! Leave your thoughts and comments below.

On bus from Suds Factory to Dome. We've had a good time thus far. Syracuse folks are welcoming but all the sit staff remark on the Clemson fans ( no surprise)

 
At 2:54 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

I'm becoming resigned to the fact that the Heisman hopes are dashed. The play of others is going to keep him out of contention. I believe he deserves it, but the national pundits are just not warming to him for some reason. The best we can hope for now is an NYC invite.

Now, we can focus on what I'm betting Williams agrees is most important - getting the 8th win. Let's get revenge on Syracuse and keep them out of bowl eligibility!

 
At 2:56 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

I hope the team is more geared up and focused than the many fans who somehow think this is going to be a relatively easy game.

Go BC - beat Syracuse.

 
At 3:04 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

I can't imagine anyone in their right mind would think this is going to be an easy game. The teams are evenly matched, Syracuse is fighting for bowl eligibility, and it's on the road. We have our hands full today!

 
At 3:13 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

wow - Duke pulled it off.

Congratulations and nothing to lose next week.

 
At 3:26 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

Are we pumped up yet? I'm a bundle of anticipation and nerves.

We really need this after enduring the Two Stooges!

And Diamond Ferri for 9 years.

Let's take their will in their own building! Led by Matt Patchan.

Syracuse is playing with a lot more energy so far. That punt by Freese must have been shanked.

 
At 3:45 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

I hate that low punt. If it doesn't hit the ground, you get a 25 yard return.

 
At 3:47 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

Team looks flat - travel-itis?

 
At 3:49 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Ouch, defense giving up major chunk plays early. Let's hope we can hold them to a field goal.

 
At 3:49 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

Inside of Syracuse Dome looks depressing

 
At 3:51 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

If we win, at 8-4, do we have bowl priority over UNC 6-6 (BC rule)

 
At 3:53 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

I agree, Mod. Why don't they turn a few lights on? I hate dome football.

 
At 3:53 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Dodged a bullet there,

 
At 3:54 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

Dodged a bullet.

 
At 3:57 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

9 in the box

 
At 3:57 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Well, it looks like Rettig still sucks.

 
At 3:57 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

Dudek was wide open and Chase overthrew and too high.

 
At 3:58 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

Another shitty punt.

 
At 3:58 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

Rettig is absolutely awful. How many wide open receivers has he already missed today? And Andre will be lucky to get 100 today. Syracuse has 9 in the box and can actually tackle.

 
At 3:59 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

I know it is early, not getting good vibe -yet.

Big Mo must change

 
At 3:59 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

meant to say and too strong (hard).

 
At 4:00 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Man, we look like MAC team today.

 
At 4:01 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

This has all the makings of a heart breaker.

Come on BC coaches - get these guys tuned in.

 
At 4:01 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Why is Freese punting so poorly? Isn't it easier to punt in a dome?

 
At 4:03 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

Don Brown needs to put on a hat - he looks more menacing that way. :-)

 
At 4:05 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

Let's go Ryan Day.

They've got everybody in the box just about.

 
At 4:08 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Andre is struggling, but let's not forget what's important here. We need a win. We can sacrifice Andre's Heisman for a victory. They are stacking the box so the play action is working, so long as Rettig can hit the wide open receivers.

 
At 4:08 PM, Blogger Deacon Drake said...

Good adjustment... They are locked on AW.

 
At 4:10 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

That's right = open it up for Andre.

 
At 4:13 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Why am I singing "Andre, Andre, Andre" to the tune of the soccer chant, "Ole, Ole, Ole.....Ole..Ole!"

 
At 4:14 PM, Blogger Deacon Drake said...

That quick snap gets us a big play every game.

 
At 4:17 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Man,the BC defense is giving up a ton of yards. Put a spy on Hunt.

 
At 4:18 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

That's interesting: it looked like Andre had a 32 yard TD run...but he was only credited with a 24 yarder.

 
At 4:23 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

It just may be that BC is a slow starting team. They almost don't get going until the 4th quarter.

 
At 4:24 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Get a spy on Hunt. Please!!!!!

 
At 4:28 PM, Blogger mmason said...

Syracuse games can be brutal...My memory of 'Cuse games is filled with horror shows and heartbreaks--yeah, we've beaten 'em a bunch, but they really get up for BC games at their place. It's friggen Halloween and Christmas all at once--and they NEED this game to go bowlin' ... we need to be "tough tough tough tough tough tough tough" ( to steal a line from The Stones). Can't let them score in here.

 
At 4:31 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

I pretty much believed Andre's Heisman chances were over before the game even began. Now you can write the obituary and it is the defense's fault. They are going to be on the field all day and Wiliams is just not going to get enough touches. Further, the 'Cuse defense is coming out well-rested every series. He may get 100 to 150, but that is not even close to what he needs for Heisman consideration.

 
At 4:32 PM, Blogger mmason said...

If Rettig can throw a few sweet accurate passes in this game, then Andre will have a beauty day... A Big If that. I want to believe...

 
At 4:33 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

ok guys. toughen up - especially on D.

we miss Ramsey and Abdesmad.

 
At 4:39 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

We're getting a taste of our won medicine. Why does Syracuse always ruin our hopes? ALways! So friken frustrating.

 
At 4:39 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

We are officially in big trouble, just like I knew we would be.

 
At 4:39 PM, Blogger mmason said...

A turn-over...a Rettig pass INT...and we can't stop these guys...C'mon Eagles!! Get TUFF!

At 4:42 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

Boy oh boy, is this tough to watch.

Can't underestimate that we do not play well on road -- add a dome to that

 
At 4:45 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

This is not good. Forget trophies. We won't win this game if the defense doesn't improve.

 
At 4:45 PM, Blogger ChrisB said...

That's going to leave a mark. OT question is meth addiction a big problem in upstate NY?

 
At 4:49 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

btw - i told my wife we would not travel o a bowl unless we win today.

that's how strongly i feel about it and effing syracuse.

 
At 4:51 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

Why can't freese punt today? wTF?

 
At 4:52 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

These turkeys ate too much turkey this Turkey weekend.

 
At 4:52 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

another shitty punt after another 3 and out.

 
At 4:52 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

Syracuse is doing what everyone else has. It is just other than the Naples pass, we are not doing anything to exploit their fronts.

 
At 4:52 PM, Blogger AlbanyEagle said...

Someone help me.
Drowning in a dee of drunken Orange here in the dome.
Absolutely brutal in every facet.

(sea)

 
At 4:53 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

We can't go down 21 to 7.

These guys had better wake up.

They are playing and looking like deer in the headlights.

Andre has had more runs for losses than probably all year.

 
At 4:55 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

This has 2004 written all over it and I blame the coaches, and the whole BC (we'll roll with Andre) community.

 
At 4:55 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

I agree ATL. Forget trophies. We just need something positive right now. You can officially retire #andre44heisman. We are going to get so far behind that we will be forced to abandon the run.

 
At 4:56 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Chink play, after chunk play, after chunk play. This reminds me of the BC defense of the mid 90's.

 
At 4:59 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

Our Defense has turned a crap QB into an All-ACC player.

Hard to watch

 
At 5:01 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

Too add, I hate the color commentary guy too.

One of those days

 
At 5:01 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

I wasn't kidding about Don Brown wearing a hat.

He looks as lost as his players.

But really, Ryan Day should have been able - and still should be able to exploit the Syracuse defense.

We've got to get our D some time on the bench. I think they have 3 times as much time on the field as we do offensively.

 
At 5:02 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

Time to give Rettig the hook. BC has no chance of getting back into the game with him at the helm.

 
At 5:03 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

Alright, maybe I should keep saying that more.

 
At 5:04 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

Mr Day has a good imagination this drive!

 
At 5:04 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Every time we open things up, good thing happen! Destroy the trophy! He was never going to get it anyway.

 
At 5:04 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

That was not how our former coach would have ended the half.

 
At 5:06 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

We pulled that TD play off against someone else earlier in the year.

Rettig showed some grit on the long pass to Amidon.

Okay boys - we have life.

 
At 5:07 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

Whew. Lucky to be down just 7

 
At 5:07 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

Good end to a rough half.

 
At 5:08 PM, Blogger mmason said...

Why the surprise? This is how we rolled every time we lost this season...If we could game plan for BC this is what anyone would do...I'm going for a walk in the sun before I think about this too much. In the last 25 meetings vs. Syracuse, we have won 9 and lost 16. I just had a 1966 flashback when they beat us 30-0. SU is 28-18 all time against BC. These guys cried when we left the Big East...

 
At 5:09 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

Syracuse calls our TD drives Junk and baloney plays


Ha!

 
At 5:09 PM, Blogger Marcel Elysee said...

Did the coach just say that?!???? Lol I hope that someone relays that message to the locker room

 
At 5:10 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

That is Syracuse head coach doug marrone (is that his name?)

 
At 5:11 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

No scot shafer.

Oops

 
At 5:15 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

Schafer clearly didn't watch enough tape. That "junk stuff" is our offense.

 
At 5:19 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Well, I feel a little better but I am very concerned about the performance of the defense. However,to be fair, they were constantly defending short fields thanks to the offense sputtering and Freese punting horribly.

We need to forget the trophy and abandon the run, at least until they loosen up and take men out of the box. All season when we have opened it up, good things have happened. Take what they will give you and right now, they are not giving the run.

 
At 5:29 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

Dig Deep, guys. Boston College needs you to win today.

Let's do it.

Dig deeper than you ever have before. We have enough time and you can do this.

 
At 5:31 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

Oh Boy - shoulder is acting up.

 
At 5:33 PM, Blogger Marcel Elysee said...

If he can't come back in there goes the hiesman chance

 
At 5:35 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

9 in the box still.

 
At 5:36 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

Please don't fumble, Mr. Willis. True freshman

 
At 5:37 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

Chase is playing heads up today.

 
At 5:37 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

Rettig has never done that, has he?

 
At 5:38 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

He's giving the ball to the kid from nearby Syracuse.

Rouse.

 
At 5:38 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

Junk that!

 
At 5:38 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Nice!!! Now let's go defense!

 
At 5:39 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

TD Sinkovek - brilliant drive.

 
At 5:39 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

Rettig's best work ofte year.

 
At 5:39 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

Williams heading to the locker room.

 
At 5:39 PM, Blogger Marcel Elysee said...

Lmao.....Was that junk jack@ss

 
At 5:39 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

It's quite evidence that Willis is better able to exploit the Syracuse run D by attacking the edges than Andre. Nice drive.

 
At 5:40 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

ATL, didn't you say earlier in the year Rettig should run more?

 
At 5:40 PM, Blogger Marcel Elysee said...

Williams is done I think

 
At 5:40 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

(and Day's too)

 
At 5:41 PM, Blogger WI_Eagle said...

At the game ... Dre Will just went into locker room

 
At 5:42 PM, Blogger Marcel Elysee said...

Well hopefully he still gets an invite

 
At 5:42 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

Now we need the defense to toughen up.

 
At 5:45 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

Syracuse is pushing us around.

We need a turnover - we look lost.

 
At 5:47 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Marcel, I doubt he gets an invite now. The dream is done. Let's focus on 8 wins now.

 
At 5:48 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

Bad bad tackling.

 
At 5:48 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

Syracuse 10-14 on third down. BC can't tackle either. Yowzer.

 
At 5:49 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

We should have stopped that. We can't tackle today.

 
At 5:49 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

We are 0-4 on 3rd down and and Syracuse is 10-13. Defense just can't stop this offense. So reminiscent of '04.

 
At 5:51 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

Stop them please.

 
At 5:51 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Another 3rd down conversion. Just can't stop them.

 
At 5:51 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

4 down territory and no problem for Syracuse probably.

 
At 5:51 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

4 down territory and no problem for Syracuse probably.

 
At 5:52 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

Mihalek will pick one of those off hopefully.

 
At 5:53 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

Daniels is playing well.

 
At 5:55 PM, Blogger Marcel Elysee said...

Williams back in the field and in the o line huddle

 
At 5:57 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

loosen them up with Willis and Sinkovek, etc and then Williams - boom!

 
At 6:01 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

This jumbo offense will work next year.

 
At 6:02 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Oh, oh. Every time the offense fails to score, we are in trouble.

 
At 6:03 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

Sorta of a fun preview of next year

 
At 6:05 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

Well, we need a stop or a turnover.

On the one hand I like giving Rouse a chance in his hometown, but it didn't work.

It shows the coach believes in his players, so let's finish this off, BC. Do it for yourselves!!!!

 
At 6:05 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

Defense is DUE for a turn over!!

 
At 6:06 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

Does anyone trust our d right now?

 
At 6:07 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

Asprilla got away with ahold

 
At 6:08 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

I believe. (ok, only a litte)

 
At 6:08 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Just can't stop them. Are we cursed against Syracuse?

I guess this game does not really matter. 8 wins versus 7 does not mean a whole lot, but for some reason, I want this win.

 
At 6:09 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

Not many players getting breaks on our Dline or LBs

 
At 6:11 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

If he's ready, get Andre back in.

 
At 6:12 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

Don't agree. This is huge for us and 8 is much better than 7 for our bowl chances.

Sh t City or something good.

But I don't care about bowls right now - we must beat Syracuse.

 
At 6:14 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

The great duck run!!

 
At 6:14 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

Wow.

 
At 6:15 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

Would be ironic if Rettig became the first 100 yard rusher against Syracuse this season instead of Andre.

 
At 6:18 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

The flying duck

Wow

 
At 6:21 PM, Blogger bceagle93 said...

That series showed exactly the kind of offense Addazio wants to run going forward -- if Rettig can rack up yards, imagine a more dynamic QB in this offense....gonna be exciting.

 
At 6:21 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

Let's go d.

 
At 6:21 PM, Blogger Marcel Elysee said...

Does the bowl game count as season stats

 
At 6:22 PM, Blogger Marcel Elysee said...

Wade

 
At 6:22 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

I love it - go Chase Rettig - "You the Man!"

 
At 6:24 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

Let's go D - let's go Don Brown.

Let's stop them now.

 
At 6:24 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

I knew we'd (almost) pick one of those.

 
At 6:25 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Story of the game. You have them pinned and then you give up a 27 chunk play. Ughhhh!

 
At 6:25 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

No excuse.

 
At 6:25 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

We need a turnover. Someone needs to step up.

 
At 6:26 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

So frustrating!

 
At 6:27 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

Can any DB make a play?

 
At 6:28 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

This is tough to watch.

 
At 6:28 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

Hold them this series.

 
At 6:28 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

4 downs.

 
At 6:29 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

Huge 2 plays coming up.

 
At 6:30 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

We can win this!

 
At 6:31 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Please don't tell me BC stalls on offense, Syracuse gets the ball back and then Norton nails a 40 yard game winner. Please, God, don't let this happen.

 
At 6:32 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

That kick was close, but good. For a second I thought it would slide out, but it stayed the course and maybe even came back in a little.

Oh boy - this is where conditioning will come into play.

I hope it's on our side.

 
At 6:33 PM, Blogger mmason said...

Well, Rettig did what he needed to do...& the D held em for 3...If we can grind it out and score, these Orangemen are back to the juice factory, pure pulp.
Let's Go Eagles!!

 
At 6:34 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Open things up. The play action is there.

 
At 6:35 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

God, do you not hear my prayers?

 
At 6:35 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

3 and out. Really disappointing.

 
At 6:35 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

That was the biggest damn disaster of a possession. They didn't even try to get any yards.

 
At 6:36 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

Freese has been pitiful punting today.

 
At 6:36 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

Ugh. Don't feel great right now. Someone on d needs to step up. Do it for Andre.

 
At 6:37 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Might have to start calling timeouts to give our offense some time. All we need is 1:30.

 
At 6:37 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

They have had great field position all day because of the pitiful punting.

 
At 6:38 PM, Blogger mmason said...

Well---This sux...Man,...more Torture. Is there no relief from this? It's a 'Cuse thing...C'mon BC! We need a turnover, boys! Kick some butt!

 
At 6:39 PM, Blogger mmason said...

Yes! I AM psychic!

 
At 6:39 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

I've been calling for it all day - yes!!!!!

 
At 6:39 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

Wow

 
At 6:39 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Yes!!!! Game is not over though. They have all their timeouts and a field goal does not help us much. We need a TD.

 
At 6:40 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Weird that Syracuse called a timeout with the clock stopped.

 
At 6:41 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

That int was Chamberlin like.

 
At 6:41 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Great time for a penalty.

 
At 6:41 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

We need a TD.

 
At 6:42 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Dammit. Drive killing penalty. You can't make those mistakes in close games.

 
At 6:44 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

We might also need to use our timeouts to help our D.

Syracuse just burned their last TO.

 
At 6:44 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

I guess you can run a play, take the penalty and then kick the field goal from 5 yards back.

I really wanted the TD here.

 
At 6:45 PM, Blogger Big Jack Krack said...

I'm going to shut up until this is over.

 
At 6:45 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

WTF? Why pass to the sidelines and let them preserve clock?

 
At 6:46 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

You got to stay in bounds there.

 
At 6:47 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

Dumb dumb dumb....I still have a bad feeling. All it takes is a TD. Wouldn't be surprised to see BC play some sort of zone/prevent D.

 
At 6:47 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

They should have kept the play inbounds, run the clock down, take the delay of game or call a TO and then kick the field goal. That preserved about 30 seconds for them.

 
At 6:49 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

Syracuse just marching down the field at will.

 
At 6:49 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Bad, bad, bad feeling about this.

 
At 6:50 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

More bad tackling.

 
At 6:50 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

We needed that touchdown. I knew that would haunt us.

 
At 6:51 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

The fell for the fake spike!

 
At 6:52 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

This is terrible.

 
At 6:52 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

BC not paying attention...AGAIN...just like last week.

 
At 6:54 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Brutal,brutal!

 
At 6:54 PM, Blogger ATL_eagle said...

I'm going to puke.

 
At 6:55 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

This is a bad, bad, bad loss. Lose to a 5-6 team! Pathetic.

 
At 6:55 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

Such a fucking stupid defense...They deserve to lose.

 
At 6:55 PM, Blogger mmason said...

We blew this one...

 
At 6:56 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Clearly, this program has a long way to go. We have to get to a point where we don't lose to North Carolina or Syracuse.

 
At 6:57 PM, Blogger Colin said...

ugh....re: settling for FG on our last drive...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3tIl4Y8HMUU

 
At 6:57 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

Prevent defense prevents another win. Horrible game management the last 8 minutes or so.

 
At 6:58 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

Bottom line is you have to score touchdown and if you can't do that, you have to manage the clock. Running a pass play out of bounds was idiotic.

 
At 6:58 PM, Blogger mod34b said...

That sucked

 
At 7:00 PM, Blogger Bravesbill said...

Spaz-fucking-tastic

 
At 7:00 PM, Blogger eagleboston said...

One lesson I always forget after watching 30 years of BC football. They will always, always disappoint. Since Flutie, we have never won a conference title, never played in a BCS game and never won a Heisman. They tease you, bring you ever so close, and then crush you. It never fails.

 
At 7:02 PM, Blogger ForHereMenareMen... said...

So, just so I am clear. No Heisman, Williams hurt, no 8th win, and still on the bowl bubble? Nice work boys, nice.

Again, I guess it does not really matter, but it leaves a bad taste in my mouth. 8 wins versus 7 is meaningless in the grand scheme of things.

I really worry about next year when we will not have the best kicker, running back and receiver in school history. Plus we will need to break in a new QB and somehow fix this horrible defense. Could be a tough season, but long term, Addazio will turn it around.

Well all I can say is hats off to Syracuse.

I thought we should have used our timeouts better.

I don't want to comment on the failure to score a TD or our failure to hold them to 74 yards or less with no timeouts.

That was like WVU in 93.

I am very disappointed, but our guys had a helluva season. We are better than Syracuse, just didn't appreciate how tough it is to win one of these games.

Eagleboston didn't care - 7 and 5 or 8 and 4, but I did.

Shrevesport here we come.

If you think about it, the loss makes Andre look even better. BC can't win when Andre doesn't play. Still no chance at a Heisman, no chance at a decent bowl....another disappointment.

I think if we had 8 wins, we could not be bypassed by a 6-6 team. Now, I believe, with ony 7 wins we can be bypassed in favor of any other ACC team for any bowl.

So. This was a bad loss


Will we get a bowl?

It matters a little. With the 8th win, the hated 'Cuse would have been out and now they stand to steal a bowl slot. We would have been 5-3 in the ACC which would have prevented 2 teams from jumping us per the "BC Rule". So this win had some technical meaning aside from it just sucking that we're not 8-4.
You could say that unless you're 12-0, it does not matter, but that would be giving away most of the meaning for most fans.

They couldn't have denied us too badly at 8 and 4, but they sure can at 7 and 5.

Hell, we were 9 and 3 in 2005, and they sent us to Boise.

What's the crappiest bowl in our lineup? Here we come, but this game didn't mean anything.

I want to get in a fist fight right now.
