In-game comments post: Colorado State

This won't provide the highs of USC nor will it generate the "ehhs" of Maine. Instead this game represents a great opportunity for BC to close the month out with a win and prepare for the rest of the ACC slate. Let's make it a good one! Leave your thoughts and comments below.

For those at the game: what is the weather like and how full is the stadium?

Christopher Blake said...

Hot and empty

eagleboston said...

Very, very concerned about the Rams' passing attack.

eagleboston said...

Need to get positive yardage on first down.

Big Jack Krack said...

Empty and disgraceful.

eagleboston said...

Murphy can't hit anyone in the passing game.

eagleboston said...

Missed tackles. Looks like the Pitt game.

Christopher Blake said...

Cherry explains......Huh?

Big Jack Krack said...

Some passing will work today.

Chip away.

CSU is well prepared, which is what scared me all along.

ATL_eagle said...

Not a great first quarter. Need Murphy to kick it into gear.

Big Jack Krack said...

The guy who tried to stop Hilliman got run over and hurt.

Hills is a manly man at a young age.

Big Jack Krack said...

Did we get an attendance figure? Did we make it over 30,000?

The Eagles looked pretty good on that 80 yard drive, all things considered.

Big Jack Krack said...

I have the game on FSSHD - Fox Sports South.

eagleboston said...

The kick off guys need to stay in their lanes. One guy was in position to make the tackle and shifted way over to the left.

Big Jack Krack said...

TD if the runner kept his feet, maybe.

Big Jack Krack said...

Nice sack.

Sunny, 80 degrees - beautiful day at Alumni.

eagleboston said...

I know this looks slow and plodding, but we are wearing down this defense. This will pay off in the 4th quarter.

eagleboston said...

Where is Sherm today?

Big Jack Krack said...

Standing by, I guess.

Big Jack Krack said...

Let's go - punch one in.

EL MIZ said...

Sherm has been in on a few fake handoffs, gotta figure he's going to get the ball soon. silly not to use such a weapon like him more.

Hilliman is a beast. clearly the lead back, with Willis as the backup. no Rouse today. Outlow had another nice catch.

gotta come away with points here.

EL MIZ said...

Murphy is really an impressive runner. great score. GO EAGLES

Big Jack Krack said...

All Murphy. Other BC QBs would have been down for a loss, and we would have settled for a FG attempt.

Go Tyler.

eagleboston said...

Too many big plays on that drive. But, it's hard to hold the Rams scoreless for an entire half.

eagleboston said...

BC is being too conservative here. Co State wants the ball back. This is where our shitty passing game costs us big time.

Bravesbill said...

Pass defense looking shaky as usual.

ATL_eagle said...

I'm glad CSU called the timeout. Be aggressive, Daz!

eagleboston said...

Let's try to at least get a field goal out of this drive.

eagleboston said...

We need to get something out of this drive. Rams get the ball to start the half and I am guessing they will score as they have figured out how to dink and dunk on us.

ATL_eagle said...

Dudeck showing that he still has good hands.

ATL_eagle said...

Got to catch that.

eagleboston said...

Such a refreshing change from Spaz. He would have never forced the ball down the field with 90 seconds left. We may come away with no points, but I like the strategy.

ATL_eagle said...

Frustrating end to the half. First allowing them to drive and then not converting on the FG. Can't let them hang around.

eagleboston said...

Ouch, I'm not feeling good about this. Don't like that they get the ball first with all of the momentum.

Bravesbill said...

How can't either of BC's kickers out one through the uprights? At least Daz is pissed.

eagleboston said...

Is Howell our only kicker from long distance? Don't we have a freshman that we recruited? Howell has cost BC a lot of points this season and that is unacceptable. Most college kickers can make that kick.

eagleboston said...

I'm guessing after last week, Colorado State is going to be ready for a surprise onside kick.

Bravesbill said...

CSU will march down the field on the opening drive.

Bravesbill said...

Most high school kickers can make that kick eagle

ATL_eagle said...

Need a good kick and then a 3 and out.

Christopher Blake said...

What bugs me is late arrivals pushing their way through mid 2nd quarter.

eagleboston said...

Shit, they have our defense completely on their heels.

Bravesbill said...

QB has way too much time to pass and is picking BC apart. When BC brings a blitz though, he's still able to hit short passes for big yards. Pick your poison.

eagleboston said...

I'm irate that we did not score before the half. This team will score at will in the 2nd half and our offense is going to have to score 3 TDs just to keep up with them.

Bravesbill said...

Well seems like I was right. Not hard to predict though. Terrible tackling on that run.

eagleboston said...

Well, I knew this team was going to give us fits. We need to respond on this drive or we will be playing from behind.

eagleboston said...

Need to get the ball to our playmakers. Alston, Hilliman.

eagleboston said...

Not happy with the discipline of the O-line today

eagleboston said...

Got to go for it. Field goals will not keep up with TDS

eagleboston said...

Can't criticize Daz for the calls today. Love this coach!

ATL_eagle said...

Now it is on the D.

eagleboston said...

dinking and dunking. Brown has no answer. Must be frustrating.

eagleboston said...

How many missed tackled today?????

eagleboston said...

D-line is getting pushed around on every running play.

Bravesbill said...

Freaking tackle already!

eagleboston said...

If CO State gets any points out of this drive, that is huge for them. All they need is 1 defensive stop and they can drive in for the win. Our offense has to score every possession from here on out to stay ahead of these guys. They are potent on offense.

eagleboston said...

Now, that missed Howell field goal is critical. Must score on this drive to go up by 10. They have contained the big plays so far. Time for the Sherminator?

eagleboston said...

That conversion by Murphy was huge.

eagleboston said...

Willis seems to be running better than Hilliman today.

eagleboston said...

Bordner has been a pleasant surprise this season.

eagleboston said...

Oh, oh. This game is swiftly unraveling. That was on the receiver. Slipped on the field. Not Murphy's fault.

eagleboston said...

D needs to get the first stop in several drives.

Bravesbill said...

Ugh. Sets CSU up perfectly. Need another bend, don't break possession.

eagleboston said...

C'mon, let's go defense!!!!! It's on you now!!

Bravesbill said...

More missed tackles

eagleboston said...

Bad, bad, bad timeout. You cannot blow timeouts in close game. We may need them for a final drive. First major coaching mistake of the game and it is a costly one.

Big Jack Krack said...

Bad TO, maybe. Okay if they hold.

CSU is tough on both sides of the ball in Q4.

eagleboston said...

Not OK at all. In a 1 score game, I want all of my timeouts.

eagleboston said...

I would go for it if I was Co STate. BC cannot stop this offense.

eagleboston said...

Reverse Karma works yet again!!

eagleboston said...

Anyone up for a 7 minute drive?

I'm still extremely nervous.I think the offense needs one more score.

eagleboston said...

Hilliman is not running as well as Willis. Now we are in a 3rd and long again at a critical juncture.

eagleboston said...

We cannot win a game scoring just 7 points in the 2nd half.

Bravesbill said...

Freaking terrible play calls. Spaz-esque

eagleboston said...

OK, defense, the offense does not have it today. We need you to close it out. This is the season. This is a bowl. This is critical. Win it for the Eagles!

eagleboston said...

They have done an amazing job picking up the blitz today.

eagleboston said...

Really wish we had that field goal and that horrific timeout.

eagleboston said...

Not giving up yet, but definitely on life support.

Bravesbill said...

Fucking embarassing. BC better just let then score quick.

eagleboston said...

We need to start using timeouts as they will go for it on 4th down.

eagleboston said...

Bravesbill, I really think the injuries on the O-line are showing up today. We have had little push all day.

eagleboston said...

This is it!!

Bravesbill said...

Too much time elapsing. Won't have a chance to get the ball back.

Bravesbill said...

Fucking 3 man rush.

chicagofire1871 said...

Damn

Bravesbill said...

Who the fuck rushes 3 there after almost giving up a td on the previous play. Stupid.

eagleboston said...

Well, I knew this was going to be a step back year due to Spaz's absolutely shitty recruiting, but I thought we would win this one at home. Still, I figured the USC game as a loss, so we are right where I thought we would be after 5 games. Not sure where we can find 3 more wins as our schedule gets very tough. Wake is the only sure victory left.

Bravesbill said...

Wasting so much time.

Bravesbill said...

Terrible terrible loss. Horrible second half coaching. That's what happens when you go ultra conservative on offense and defense.

eagleboston said...

I am not sure we should stick with Murphy. He is one dimensional, presents zero threat in the passing game is is not the future. Since this is a step back year, shouldn't we be getting Wade some experience. We're not going to a bowl anyway, so why not get your your QB some reps and better prepare him for next season.

Bravesbill said...

When can we start a fire Don Brown campaign?

Bravesbill said...

Next year will be an even bigger step back with a new young QB

chicagofire1871 said...

Ugly

eagleboston said...

Howell's missed field goal was a killer. Flipping find another Apo in the student body. That cost us the game.

Bravesbill said...

Bravesbill said...

Their coaching cost BC the game, esp. in the 4th quarter. Putrid.

eagleboston said...

Right, Bravesbill, that is why we need to get them some experience this year. If you cannot score more than 7 points in a critical game against a non-power conference team, you are not the answer at quarterback. Start Wade, get him some experience, and we will be much better prepared next season. Otherwise, you could blow 2-3 early games next year trying to get experience.

eagleboston said...

Zero touches for Alston. Inexcusable.

Christopher Blake said...

Lots of grabbing by csu; cherry swallowed his flags
