In-game comments post: Wake Forest

Wake games often bring out some nail biting moments. I hope today is different. We need the offense to step up and I think they can and will.

Hard to believe we are at the half-way mark of the season and we are already talking about must-wins. But this is a must win if BC has any hopes for a bowl game.

ATL_eagle said...

Any crowd updates?

eagleboston said...

"The Nation's #1 defense." Love the sound of that.

eagleboston said...

Crowd is horrible. Local alumni suck.

ATL_eagle said...

Nice run by Walker. I don't like the all maroon uniforms.

eagleboston said...

Another drive-killing penalty. Cannot have receivers false starting.

ATL_eagle said...

Terrible start. This is in part because of the QB nonsense.

eagleboston said...

As fun as the defense is to watch, it is that much painful to watch the offense.

eagleboston said...

Can't run on these Eagles!

ATL_eagle said...

Good start for the D...of course Alston made the return interesting.

eagleboston said...

#58 got whipped on that Rouse run.

ATL_eagle said...

I hope Smith comes in next. Even with a few first downs, the D is not respecting Flutie and it cripples the run game.

eagleboston said...

Wow, Texas just beat OU.

ATL_eagle said...

That was Alston's best return this year.

eagleboston said...

Outlow has got to hit the holes faster.

eagleboston said...

Darn, if Smith could throw, that would have been a TD.

ATL_eagle said...

Great job by Callinan for adjusting.

ATL_eagle said...

What a wasted drive. Smith played well.

eagleboston said...

Kicking game is going to give me a coronary. It's cost us 6 games over the past 2 years.

eagleboston said...

Smith moved the ball, but that horrible throw cost us a TD.

Bravesbill said...

Jesus. 4 down territory in the red zone now. Never again.

Bravesbill said...

Uh oh. Kudos to Wake for that call. Salt in the wound.

eagleboston said...

I think the BC defense is very, very vulnerable to the deep ball. I'm surprised more teams don't pass on this defense. You can't run on them so I don't know why teams insist on trying.

eagleboston said...

How is that receiver that wide open? They need to start blitzing.

ATL_eagle said...

This is an ugly game.

ATL_eagle said...

This is an ugly game.

Bravesbill said...

At least the Wake kicker looks as bad as BCs.

eagleboston said...

I like this Gowins kid.

ATL_eagle said...

Gowins looks good so far.

eagleboston said...

Alston is killing BC this year. That INT is all on him.

ATL_eagle said...

That wasn't Smith's fault. That's on Alston.

Bravesbill said...

Comically bad. Smith has actually looked decent passing. Too bad his receivers are awful.

ATL_eagle said...

What a great defensive play. Johnson and Strachan.

ATL_eagle said...

Why couldn't have Smith tried that pass? This is just stupid.

eagleboston said...

I'm not sure about having Howell kick with a quad injury. Field position may decide this game.

Bravesbill said...

Let the QB carousel continue.

eagleboston said...

I can't tell if the BC defense is very good, or if the offenses we have faced are plain atrocious.

Napolean Bonaparte said...

Our offensive line just can't do it. By far our biggest problem. Makes everybody else look worse than they probably are.

eagleboston said...

I think Wake only has 1 yard rushing so far.

ATL_eagle said...

I want to see Smith on this drive.

eagleboston said...

Correction, 4 yards. That's insane!

eagleboston said...

ATL, I don't know how you can say one QB is better than the other. They both can't move the offense.

eagleboston said...

Gowins looking like Andre Williams

eagleboston said...

O-line has got to give BC a fighting chance.

ATL_eagle said...

Flutie held it too long.

eagleboston said...

Don't like the feel of this game. We need the defense to score. Any bowl chance disolves if we lose this game.

Bravesbill said...

Sacked on a 4 man rush. Just sad.

eagleboston said...

ATL, Flutie had no time to get set. #74 whiffed his block. You'll see it on the 2nd viewing.

ATL_eagle said...

We better not sit on it.

Bravesbill said...

Guaranteed BC will.

ATL_eagle said...

Clawson knows how to use the clock and timeouts.

Bravesbill said...

If they were planning to do that, why bother taking a timeout?

Napolean Bonaparte said...

No QB could move this offense with this offensive line.

Bravesbill said...

Gonna give Wake good field position with decent time left now.

eagleboston said...

Just 89 total yards for the Wake offense. Only 11 on the ground. If I were Wake, I would pass nearly every down. I really think BC is vulnerable to the pass.

Bravesbill said...

Heh Daz promised even more base football. Be on the look for A bunch of R-R-R-P this half. Wake should do the quick 5 yard passes like Duke did. They hit a few quick slants in the first half.

Big Jack Krack said...

I'm impressed with Gowins for not losing the ball on some of those hits. True freshman facing 9 defenders in the box.

I don't know if we have ever had an offense this limited, and I have been a fan for a long time.

eagleboston said...

Addazio highly critical of the missed blocks at the halftime interview with St. Pierre.

eagleboston said...

Big Jack, the BC offense under Shinskie was pretty bad.

eagleboston said...

Addazio has to pick one of these guys to be the quarterback and go with it. The unit is confused and cannot get any consistency. I don't know who he goes with as they both are very bad, but just pick one and ride them.

TGS said...

Not sure where the anti-Flutie bias on the part of ATL comes from. Did Flutie's uncle cost him a bet years ago?

ATL_eagle said...

Good first defensive stand.

Big Jack Krack said...

Wow - you have to question Addazio on this.

eagleboston said...

Game over. First team that scores wins. Might be the only team that scores. Bullshit for the defense.

ATL_eagle said...

Now we ask the D to save us again.

Bravesbill said...

Well that's the game.

mod10aeagle said...

This is a horrible head coaching job. Why would we burn Gowins' redshirt? Does he really believe Outlow and Rouse are the issue?

ATL_eagle said...

Smith...Flutie...I don't care. Just score some points.

eagleboston said...

I can't believe we are going to lose 2 games in a row with the opponent not getting in the endzone. Amazing!

mod10aeagle said...

NESN just went dark here in roughly central Mass. (Comcast country). Mercy rule, perhaps?

ATL_eagle said...

Now that was on Smith. Stupid.

eagleboston said...

I think I'm going to watch the defense and then switch channels when the offense takes the field.

TGS said...

Someone please tell Daz that Smith is not Murphy. If he thinks the kid can run (he can't, lacks vision), then make him a RB and let the QB be someone who can throw the GD ball.

Bravesbill said...

I can't believe that BC was a 9.5 point favorite.

eagleboston said...

Wake is setting us up for the deep ball.

ATL_eagle said...

Go for a punt block now.

ATL_eagle said...

Taking late hits might be our best offense.

eagleboston said...

Is Willis injured?

ATL_eagle said...

Willis is not 100%. Still recovering from mono.

eagleboston said...

#74 is having a terrible game.

eagleboston said...

Christ, put Knoll back in. We almost have to go for it on 4th downs now.

ATL_eagle said...

Fail. Fail. Fail.

Bravesbill said...

Why are they kicking a fg?! And if you're going to kick you should have centered the damn ball on third down. This guy clearly can't kick from the hash.

eagleboston said...

Again, that drive was killed by Bowen's false start. The O-line needs to be more disciplined.

ATL_eagle said...

Am I crazy to think we are still going to win?

Bravesbill said...

Absolutely

TGS said...

With a whole lot of luck:

Quick Lane Bowl
ACC/Notre Dame vs. Big Ten Ford Field
Detroit, MI Mon., Dec. 28
5:00pm ET


eagleboston said...

You are definitely crazy. First team that scores always wins in this series.

eagleboston said...

ATL, only way we win is with a Pick 6. Offense has only scored 1 touchdown in 8 quarters.

Another false start kills a drive. Execution by the O-line is horrible. They need to apologize to the defense.

ATL_eagle said...

Wake's punter is the MVP of this game.

eagleboston said...

Wake up to 7 yards rushing. Gowins' mistake may be the difference in this contest.

ATL_eagle said...

There is the "veteran" QB...changing the play with no time.

Bravesbill said...

And in goes Flutie again. Why? Just why?

eagleboston said...

As with last week, that timeout is going to cost BC. You absolutely must not burn timeouts in close games. You just cannot do it.

Bravesbill said...

And there goes a TO. Smooth move.

eagleboston said...

Yeah, Flutie needs to realize the game situation and not change plays inside 10 seconds.

ATL_eagle said...

The refs are making up for last week.

eagleboston said...

Do we go for it on 4th down if we don't convert here?

Just 1 touchdown in the last 8 quarters.

ATL_eagle said...

Wake is just going to keep killing clock.

eagleboston said...

Desperately need a Pick 6 but I don't know that Clawson will put the ball in the air.

Bravesbill said...

Should have gone for it. Might not have that good of field position again.

ATL_eagle said...

The refs are killing Wake.

ATL_eagle said...

This should be a four down territory.

ATL_eagle said...

We now need Kuechly super man leap for a safety.

Bravesbill said...

So much time wasted away. Had to use a timeout there.

Bravesbill said...

Terrible pass

ATL_eagle said...

We need this to go our way.

Bravesbill said...

That was definitely a catch. Unbelievable.

Bravesbill said...

Maybe not. Definite bobble.

Bravesbill said...

Good one Flutie. What a fucking joke. Why the hell is he back in?!?!?

ATL_eagle said...

This might be one of the worst coached BC games I've every seen.

ccw said...

Worst offensive performance in BC history. Getting shut out by FSU is one thing. But Wake Forest? 4 turnovers against a defense that hadn't generated a turnover this season. Pathetic.

bceagle93 said...

Why put Flutie in to run that play? That was total over thinking. We were running on them.

TGS said...

QB sneak with the running QB out of game. Nice Daz.

Bravesbill said...

That burned timeout with Flutie bit them in the ass as well.

bceagle93 said...

No. Fucking. Way.

ccw said...

Could have handed it off but let a TO prone QB handle the ball instead.

Bravesbill said...

Oh my God

CT said...

Losing to Wake at home. Never acceptable. Even with HS QBs playing.

bceagle93 said...

They better run this in, cuz I don't think I can handle it coming down to a FG to tie.....

bceagle93 said...

Daz, bring Flutie back in to let him redeem himself.

Bravesbill said...

Missed fg to lose?

Bravesbill said...

Are you fucking serious?!

Bravesbill said...

What the fuck clock management was that?!?!?!?

ATL_eagle said...

I can not believe the last five minutes.

Bravesbill said...

Worst coaching I have ever seen.

bceagle93 said...

Unbelievable. That was pathetic. This loss was on coaching staff more than anything.

The Advocate said...

That was one of the most egregiously bad things I have ever witnessed.

perkindc said...

I'm just barfing. There is barf everywhere.

Bravesbill said...

I'm fully onboard the "Fire Daz" bandwagon
Now.

TGS said...

Anyone still think a-spazio is the answer?

always sunny in cleveland said...

Mind-bogglingly stupid.

Big Ern said...

I had a number of Florida fans laugh at our hire of daz. Now I know what was so funny.

Hockey season is here!

bceagle93 said...

If you Google "kick in the nuts" it would show video of the last 5 minutes of this game. Daz better get some frozen peas on the way home.

bceagle93 said...

Bright side: the kicking game is no longer our biggest problem.

70sGuy said...

#Dazaster

1. 5th grade football teams have better offenses
2. I am sure Jim Harbaugh will have a hard time in his 3rd year completing a pass, kicking a FG or making a first down
3. There is now 4.5 years of head coaching tape on Daz. What a joke. ESPN3 here you come.
4. Hire Doug Flutie as coach or this guy

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/sports/wp/2015/08/13/the-highly-successful-high-school-coach-who-never-punts-has-another-radical-idea/
5. I feel sorry for current students & season tix holders
6. Thanks Brad Bates

always sunny in cleveland said...

I still like him, but he, the offensive coaches and the special teams coaches need to apologize to the defense.

perkindc said...

Technically we've been in position to win every game so far. I'm chalking this up to growing pains.

Now I'm gonna go barf some more.

Big Bank Bob said...

Worst game I have ever been to. This team is pathetic. There was no Division 1 talent in the field.

10 year season ticket holder. There won't be an 11th. This is just a waste of time.

Bravesbill said...

Growing pains? Seriously?! Fucking up a game that much in the last 5 minutes is growing pains?! It's 100% coaching. Daz seriously F'd up putting in Flutie on that QB sneak and he was gift-wrapped a second chance. And he screwed that up even more! Daz probably took the most bone-headed coaching move of all time from Carroll now.

always sunny in cleveland said...

Big Ern said...

Not sure if Daz watched the pinstripe bowl last year but I did and the biggest issue was kicking. How is this not addressed?

always sunny in cleveland said...

Mind-bogglingly stupid.

Mind-bogglingly stupid.

70sGuy said...

7. That was a Top 3 most fascinating BC game I have ever watched. What a car wreck.
8. TOB would have won last week and this week and I can't believe I actually complimented TOB.

perkindc said...

Was it Daz's fault that we turned the ball over 4 times and missed 1-2 gimme field goals?

Bravesbill said...

It was Daz's fault that he put Flutie in for the sneak. It also his fault that they ran it with 20 seconds and no timeouts!

CT said...

Winning or losing that game just doesn't change the bigger picture. It just doesn't.

bceagle93 said...

Yes. He is the head coach. It is his job to instill discipline in his players. It was also priority #1 to fix the kicking game after last year. I'm not on the "Fire Daz" bandwagon yet, but make no mistake, this loss is squarely on him.

always sunny in cleveland said...

He should have made a play to the middle of the field on Flutie's sneak. I know because of the fumble it didn't matter, but the point is that a kicker with shaky confidence was looking at a narrow sleeve because it was so close in.

Big Bank Bob said...

I'm starting to think that maybe football just doesn't work at BC. There is 0 talent on this team. There might be less on Wake Forest.

CT said...

Yes. Daz needs a clinic. But offensively we are bereft of talent. On Daz too. I'm less angry about losing a relatively meaningless game and more upset about the lack of depth.

I remember Daz saying something like 60 of the 85 are underclassmen. You just can't fire somebody when u lose a couple of games-he deserves 4 yrs. Especially after Spaz.

Eagle in Marietta said...
Clearly time to get Coach Frye to return to O-Line duties. He should never again all plays for BC,or switch QBs either. My wife was stunned at their clock management.

CT said...

Does he not get credit for the defense? Not being contrarian but holy schnizzle. He is the head coach. On both sides.

bceagle93 said...

True, but his specialty happens to be on the offensive side. He WAS Tim Tebow's OC after all....

Bravesbill said...

Instead of passing on third and long before the 26 yard miss, they should have just centered the ball in the middle of the field too. The kicker already missed from the left hash.

Big Ern said...

Not sure if Daz watched the pinstripe bowl last year but I did and the biggest issue was kicking. How is this not addressed?

bc65 said...

Long time season ticket holder and my perspective goes back to late 50's...no special order to these but just my thoughts:
`
- We have an inexperienced offensive line
- 2 backup young quarterbacks handing off to
- young, inexperienced backup running backs
- a young inexperienced field goal kicker
- unproven receivers
These factors determine the types of plays you can run and the offensive schemes you use.Venting and bashing does not change that. These are painful growing pains.You encourage;re-coach and re-evaluate.You work on team building and a "we are in this together mentality" and re-assure players that you value them and have confidence that they can get better.You develop positive leadership and root out
negative leaders.You remind them of past success; our rich football tradition and how good it will feel when they put it all together.

Daz is that you? Quite heavy in the inexperience excuse. The coaching and overall game management though was stellar right?
