In-game comments post: Maine

Addazio has a new theme for this year. No more "dudes." It is now about the "Power of Unity." Here he talks about it.


That "Unity" starts today. Let's see how our new OC, QB and Oline unite against Maine. Leave your thoughts and comments below.

Got my bike ride in, brewed some coffee, watching some football and soon will be cheering on the Eagles!

TGS said...

Eagle Boston with some classic "big time" New England college football pregame activities, a bike ride (with regulation government sanctioned helmet of course) and coffee (more than likely from Starbucks).

eagleboston said...

TGS, wore my helmet, but brewed my own coffee. Starbucks is over-rated.

eagleboston said...

There was serious holding on that QB keeper.

eagleboston said...

Geez, Kavalek is a beast today!

ATL_eagle said...

Not a good start, but they adjusted a bit late.

eagleboston said...

Maine had success rolling out the QB. Kind of surprised they sat in the pocket the last few plays.

ATL_eagle said...

The defensive start was bad. The offensive start was worse.

CT said...

Their Oline has no shot today.

CT said...

Ha. Great decision on the punt. Brilliant.

eagleboston said...

My brother is at the game. He sent me a photo and it is a fairly sparse crowd. Labor Day is just so tough when people are trying to get one more weekend at the beach.

dixieagle said...

Not really feeling the warm fuzzies yet. Making me a little nervous.

eagleboston said...

I think this will be similar to last year. BC may go into half in a close game but their defense is going to wear down in the heat.

eagleboston said...

That reverse to Sherm has not worked since the middle of last season.

eagleboston said...

I know it is early but I like what I am seeing from Wade. He can hang in the pocket and his throws are accurate. Already, we have converted more 3rd downs than we did in some entire games last season.

Big Jack Krack said...

Is Gary Tranuil here?

Big Jack Krack said...

Tranquil

Big Jack Krack said...

This is sad so far. Hopefully we hit the FG.

ATL_eagle said...

The redzone play calling was painful to watch.

eagleboston said...

Not happy about the way that drive dissolved, but thankful to get the 3 points given last year's kicking woes.

eagleboston said...

ATL, I don't know if it is the play calling so much as the O-line is getting confused. On the replays, I saw multiple missed blocks. They are whiffing on their assignments.

ATL_eagle said...

That was a good defensive stand.

eagleboston said...

Dudeck!! And Wade's passing is so refreshing to see after Murphy's ineffectiveness last year.

ATL_eagle said...

Maine is crashing the line. They don't respect BC's passing nor do they expect Wade to keep it on the option. Big plays are there.

ATL_eagle said...

Terrible. This is not the first half I wanted.

Big Jack Krack said...

Glad to see we fixed the FG problem. Bring in the new freshman.

eagleboston said...

ARRRRRRGH! IS there not an Aponovicious in the student body?

eagleboston said...

OK. Open it up for Wade. Let's see what he can do with a 2 minute offense.

ATL_eagle said...

There are huge holes for Wade if he keeps it.

eagleboston said...

7 tackles for loss by Maine in the first half. Completely unacceptable.

eagleboston said...

Swigert!!!!!!!! Great catch and so nice to see him back.

ATL_eagle said...

Very happy for Swiggert.

eagleboston said...

And converted more 3rd downs that drive!

eagleboston said...

Addazio said they will use more play action and throw more in the 2nd half.

CT said...

They should be run into the ground

What's the word on attendance?

mod34b said...

slow start....bad D, Bad O....now getting in gear.... improving.

like Wade's accuracy....improvement over Murphy...

seems like little Daz (#81) missed a few blocks..

but while BC is improving from the start...... far from impressive ....yet

still it is just the first game....guys look kinda tight

mod34b said...

no surprise Howell shanked the FG from 36 yards. He is a terrible FG kicker.... and really bad over 40 yards

His PATs are clunkers too.. look at the ball. no arc.. no easy leg swing...relatively low PAT ball... its all bad news.. like a guy with a bad gold swing...only so much he can do... he is a punter....not a kicker.... and not a solution

eagleboston said...

Wade 10-14 through the air and BC 6-10 on 3rd down conversions. I know the line play has been frustrating but there are some real positives from the first half. Also, the D looks really solid so far (after a frustrating opening drive).

Scoreboard watching: Northwestern leading Stanford 13-3 mid-way through the 4th.

mod34b said...

like to see BC hire Freese (i think he is available!) as a grad assistant to get the kicking on track

CT said...

The Daz complainers have one thing right. Field goals.

eagleboston said...

My brother is in attendance and he noted #81 has missed several blocks. He did not know that was the coach's son.

mod34b said...

#81 ANOTHER BAD BLOCK

eagleboston said...

Addazio missed another block.

ATL_eagle said...

A lot of execution issues today.

mod34b said...

wonder if little Daz will be in the next series....giacone loss being felt....wonder the S. Caroline transfer guy is ready to play?

dixieagle said...

O line and kicking game really need work. There has to be a decent kicker out there somewhere. No excuse.

ATL_eagle said...

Good D there. Now let's sustain a scoring drive...and get Daniels some real pants.

eagleboston said...

BC needs to do better on first down. That was a terrible, terrible offensive series.

ATL_eagle said...

The play calling is weird. Not going for high percentage stuff on 3rd down.

dixieagle said...

Not impressed with Fitch so far.

eagleboston said...

Is Willis hurt? Have not seen anything from him today.

eagleboston said...

We need the defense to force a turnover. The offense is not getting it done today.

mod34b said...

Dixie, Fitch = Daz

dixieagle said...

Uh oh

eagleboston said...

Way too conservative play calling here.

dixieagle said...

The thought of FSU in a couple weeks makes makes me physically ill.

mod34b said...

maybe Daz did not give a good half time speech...team not showing fire...not showing intensity

that was a TERRIBLE quarter for the offense...

CT said...

Conservative usually means the offense is too screwed up to execute

mod34b said...

D was good in 3Q

mod34b said...

a great offense in 4Q!!

ATL_eagle said...

Nice run by Rouse. Finally someone made something out of nothing.

eagleboston said...

Nice drive. Found some playmakers and Rouse had an awesome TD run up the middle.

dixieagle said...

Thank God for Tyler Rouse.

eagleboston said...

I think the coaches were trying not to show too much this game but were forced to open things up due to Maine hanging in there.

ATL_eagle said...

Nice reaction on the tip.

CT said...

Eagleboston...no.

mod34b said...

Rouse to the house

dixieagle said...

Anyone know what happened to Myles Willis?

CT said...

You don't go scoreless in two qrts vs Maine and "hold back."

ATL_eagle said...

They crushed Collins there.

mod34b said...

yep... good pressure

ATL_eagle said...

Sherm is going to give me a heart attack on special teams this year.

eagleboston said...

CT, I think they definitely opened their playbook more than they intended to today.

D is playing great.

Alston is flirting with disaster on these punt returns.

eagleboston said...

We need to improve by major leaps to have any hope versus Florida State and Northern Illinois. Northern Illinois might have more talent than BC on offense.

This is a young team, so I'm hoping they get better and better as the season progresses.

dixieagle said...

They insist on making me a nervous wreck every damn game.

mod34b said...

meh... some good, some bad....not too impressive, but nothing too bad either, ok, maybe being stymied for several sets of downs by a FCS defense is bad sign for BC's O .........overall its a good start....i guess, but hard to know how good or how not good these guys are...

CT said...

Unless and until Wade poses a consistent threat throwing the ball, this offense will need to be creative.

ccw said...

Oline looked miserable. I mean bad. Physically whipped much of the game. If Maine had FBS depth, they would have kept us to 10 pts.

Alston played an awful game. I counted at least 3 drops. Nearly muffed a punt, then ran away from others he was supposed to have fielded to preserve field position.

A lot of people minimizing a poor offensive performance. Things won't magically get better b/c this was the first game. Right now, Northern Illinois will roll into BC expecting to hold us to under 20. We'll be fortunate to win that game.
