Maine. Win. But the game is closer than any of us like and the offense struggles with the basics.
Howard. Win. Another cupcake that BC cannot put away. The offense is slightly better but still not ACC caliber.
Florida State. Loss. We get crushed on national TV. The D looks bad and so does Wade.
Northern Illinois. Loss. We cannot keep up with their scoring, which raises lots of questions about our defense.
at Duke. Loss. We struggle on the road. Smith gets some snaps but doesn't look much more comfortable than Wade.
Wake Forest. Win. It is not pretty but our defense shuts them down and we run the ball well enough to snap the losing streak.
at Clemson. Loss. We play well in a loss. The game is low scoring, but BC cannot score enough to win.
at Louisville. Loss. Not even close. Another game where people are searching for answers at QB.
Virginia Tech. Win. This is the surprise win of the season. Fluky things go our way. Bowl hopes are still alive.
NC State. Loss. Brissett is not rattled by our blitzes and they win comfortably.
Notre Dame (neutral). Loss. The Irish are riding high and crush us in our own backyard. Lots of frustrations boil over online with Addazio, with Bates for agreeing to the game and with Wade.
at Syracuse. Loss. This is a tough way to end the season, but we let another game in the Carrier Dome slip away.
This would leave BC at home with a 4-8 record (2-6 in the ACC). Addazio wouldn't be on the hot seat, but there would be new perspective on his first two seasons and high expectations for Year 4. I don't think this will happen, but you never know.
