This was the type of bounceback game we all wanted to see. BC went on the road and handled NC State. Murphy was crisp on the ground and in the air. The Oline was better. After a rough start the D stepped up. Other than some bad weather and shaky Special Teams, BC had a pretty great day. From a long-term, program building standpoint, there were two encouraging signs. First the new wrinkles the coordinators added worked. The staff used the extra time well. The second sign was how Addazio handled the long lightning delay. It is a little thing that most fans would expect from a professional staff, but we've seen poor coaches look clueless during weather delays. As deflating as the last loss was, I feel much better now.
I will have second viewing thoughts and grades up late Sunday.
