In-game comments post: USC

The oddsmakers don't like our chances and last year's game wasn't fun. But under the lights at Alumni could mean a whole different vibe. Let's make it a good one. Leave your thoughts and comments below.

ACC busy making a joke of itself this week already

mmason said...

OK, Thomas...let's see in the ACC: Miami's winning, NC State, too, also Duke, UVA a winner, GTech winning, Pitt & 'Cuse too...That's a joke? ... Who's left?
Oh, yes. The Eagles of BC... Hope you have them losing, too, cuz then we got a winner coming! Always Believe in BC? Why not? Those other jokes are winning... ob la di, ob la da. Go Eagles!!! Beat those Trojans!

Bravesbill said...

Mmason--I believe Thomas is referring to the ranked ACC teams so far: bad losses by Louisville and Va Tech.

Bravesbill said...

And that doesn't include the pathetic Ga Tech performance either.

Thomas said...

Yeah mmason is obviously 3 sheets to the wind already, but that statement was made when VA Tech was down 21, Pitt was down 16(to FIU), and GT was in a dog fight with Georgia Southern. And then Louisville lost.

GO BC!

Big Jack Krack said...

Rainy but seems like a good crowd - USC has a strong contingent here.

Big Jack Krack said...

7:50pm and 5K in the stands.

Big Jack Krack said...

In all seriousness - our fans suck with this late arriving s*%t.

CT said...

Paul Johnson needs to go.

Up 35-10 at half, down 38-35 with two min left, late TD to win.

Ga Southern's first year as FBS. They should've beaten NCSU.

High school offense not good for recruiting.

CT said...

ACC is minor league football.

Big Jack Krack said...

More USC fans than Boston fans for the run out.

CT said...

What's up with the end zone seats?

CT said...

Great play call on 3rd down. Or not so much.

eagleboston said...

Big Jack, if what you say is correct, that is very disappointing. I don't remember this lack of support back in the 80's but maybe my memory is hazy.

eagleboston said...

USC gets the lucky bounce that BC never seems to get.

eagleboston said...

You can't run outside on this USC defense.

CT said...

Nice drop.

eagleboston said...

My God, we have recruited receivers that can't catch a pass right in their hands. The horror!

That one miss is a game changer and may cost us 7 points. Frustrating!

CT said...

Yeah, nice downfield block. Cheaters.

Would be nice to have WR who can catch.

eagleboston said...

This is all on Callinan. Unacceptable!

I think the defense has been playing very well but you can;t expect them to defend a short field.

CT said...

Much better tackling, though.

No skill outside.

eagleboston said...

Put in Flutie! He has the "it" factor.

eagleboston said...

We're are in big trouble. Our ball control offense is not designed for the comeback. It does not help that the offense can't get one first down.

BaldEagle90 said...

Keep running inside

CT said...

Hillman is a stud.

eagleboston said...

Smash mouth!!! I love it!

CT said...

SC cheerleaders. They always win.

CT said...

Leave it to us to miss the Xp.

eagleboston said...

Classic, every time I go negative, we score.

Keep pounding inside.

Darn, missed PAT. Boy do we miss Freese.

Bravesbill said...

Always the best in college.

eagleboston said...

Another short field. Killing BC!

eagleboston said...

#89 really blew containment on the kick off

CT said...

Out coached on the screen.

Great call.

Bravesbill said...

That was way too easy. BC looks like it's stuck in quicksand.

eagleboston said...

That's a dagger. You think you are back in it, shitty kick-off coverage, then a quick TD. Ouch.

CT said...

Their 55 schollies are worth 155 of ours.

CT said...

Like the up tempo.

Just let Murphy run all day. He's the only guy fast enough.

CT said...

Running right at them.

Gotta get the def to make a play, huh?

eagleboston said...

The defense is so much better when they are not forced to defend a short field.

Don't like timeouts coming out of a timeout.

CT said...

Would prefer to keep running right at them.

They can't have depth with the sanctions. Can't hear the tube, sure they've mentioned that.

eagleboston said...

CT, they are talking about it every 2 minutes.

CT said...

Ok. Thanks.

eagleboston said...

We needed to get a first down on that drive. Got to wear these guys down, but now they get much-needed rest.

eagleboston said...

Dropped passes are crushing us!

CT said...

Wow. Now that's bad.

CT said...

My kingdom for a decent WR.

eagleboston said...

Murphy is just not a passer. He really makes BC a one-dimensional team.

But, this one is on Bordner. Another score before then half will be devestating

eagleboston said...

Call a timeout so we can get the ball back.

Bravesbill said...

Can Josh Bordner just take a seat on the bench and never get into the game again?

CT said...

Big stop. Nice. Def is a thousand times better.

Good tackling. Amazing what the other team's uniforms will do.

CT said...

Speed is good.

eagleboston said...

The Sherminator!!!!

Bravesbill said...

Wow Alston is fast. Where has he been so far?

eagleboston said...

Wow, this is such a better feeling than last

eagleboston said...

year.

eagleboston said...

They do need to find more ways to get the ball to Sherm.

eagleboston said...

Damn, I wish we didn't waste that timeout coming out of a timeout.

CT said...

Very impressed with play-calling and execution.

Tackling, too.

Good coaching.

CT said...

Go for it. WTF?

Get two yds and spike it.

Bravesbill said...

eagleboston said...

Kicking game is atrocious.

CT said...

Wow. Conservative.

We're crushing them with the run.

Bravesbill said...

Why is BC kicking a long field goal in the rain on third down with 19 seconds left?!? Anyone could see that coming, esp. after the freebie.

Bravesbill said...

CT said...

Hate the call. Play to win.

Otherwise, good half.

Get the ball to Sherm and Murphy.

Bravesbill said...

What the hell is Daz talking about? It was 3rd and 2; a first down stops the clock! 19 seconds is enough for at least 2 plays with a FG attempt.

Big Jack Krack said...

Idk what will happen but this is the most fun I have had at a game in Alumni since pre Spaziani for sure.

Bravesbill said...

Don't like this no receiver nonsense at all. Have to keep USC honest somewhat.

blist said...

Noi matter what the outcome, I can't believe I didm;t follow the old motto under cowboy Jack -- Always Believe in BC.

eagleboston said...

I'm hoping USC starts to wear down. Defense playing awesome!

Bravesbill said...

I'm pretty surprised that USC hasn't started throwing the ball down the field. BC's secondary is pretty bad, and USC has the athletes to get open. It's like Sark never even scouted BC's first two games.

Bravesbill said...

BC defense went away from what worked and only sent 4 that entire drive. Fun times. Typical BC though.

Bravesbill said...

More zone option please!

eagleboston said...

USC gets a star defensive player back for the second half.

Bravesbill said...

Although, why wouldn't BC go for 2 even after the penalty? No difference between a 12 and 13 point lead at this point. BC needed that 14 point lead. Really odd decisions by Daz today.

eagleboston said...

Man, I'm still nervous.

Bravesbill said...

This is killing me.....damned miss extra point.

Bravesbill said...

Which begs the question, why the hell did they not try for 2 again?

eagleboston said...

Offense needs to stay loose. Get just 1 first down and game is over.

eagleboston said...

436 yards to 20. Wow!!!!!!!

Is this the same team that played Pitt?

I was at that '88 game. Brutal.

eagleboston said...

Red Bandana!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

eagleboston said...

Congrats ATL, for calling this game.

Where does this fit in BC history? Certainly the biggest game since Ryan's comeback at Va Tech, but I think this might be even bigger than that.

Huge, huge win for the program.

Pitt is way better than people think.

Bravesbill said...

I will gladly eat my earlier prediction. This zone option needs to be utilized prominently going forward.

ATL_eagle said...

I appreciate all the comments. I kept off of the blog and twitter in order not to jinx us.

mmason said...

As I said at 5:39: ALWAYS BELIEVE IN BC...
The Murph is legit, the line is a Force, the special teams are amazing and the defense grew up. These are kids who learned and coaches who prepared. BC finally has a team that doesn't back down or play soft. Go Eagles! Great Day for Boston College!
(Oh, and ,Thomas -- better watch your mouth, boy. This is BC. Have some respect. Don't post on the ACC when you don't know what you're talking about. Who's a joke now, Tommy? Wait--You wouldn't be Tommy Trojan, would you?)

CT said...

That was one of the biggest one week turn-arounds that I can remember.

That was coaching.

Any Daz disbelievers now? Tackling is about attitude. Day took advantage of what Murphy does best. Hilliman is the future.

At the risk of hyperbole, and knowing that Stanford game took its toll, this is a program builder. Recruit. Recruit. Recruit.

Imagine if this QB could throw. Imagine if we had any WRs who scared people.

Not especially talented defensively, but it's amazing what good tackling can do. And we got more pressure on the QB than my Falcons have gotten in two seasons!

We have the blueprint for the year. Stay ahead of down and distance.

Thank goodness USC cheated with Reggie Bush.

Didn't see Pat Haden on the field this week. Can he play defensive tackle?




CT said...

One more thing before my last beer.

Speed.

It kills.

Please. Recruit. More.

Thomas said...

Mmason, ignoring the fact that the ACC did get pushed around most of the day and then bashing me for commenting about it is silly at best, classless and ignorant at worst. As a BC alum, I'm as happy as you are we sent the Trojans on a 6 hour flight back home with a L.

Enjoy those post victory margaritas!
