I think this year will be okay. If you combine a good (maybe great) defense with an adequate offense and a forgiving schedule, you get to a bowl game. That's what I predict. Below is how I think it will play out. This is my prediction for the season.
What will happen
Georgia Tech. Win. We start our season with one of our toughest matchups. BC does enough well and forces some turnovers to hold onto the win.at UMass. Win. It is never even close. BC's D holds them under 10 points.
at Virginia Tech. Loss. A tough game on the road early in the season. BC is close, but sees too many drives stall out.
Wagner. Win. All the backups get to play.
Buffalo. Win. BC runs on them and gets a comfortable win.
Clemson. Loss. Not close. Clemson is riding high and we can't even play spoiler.
Syracuse. Win. I think Syracuse's coaching transition is going to be a little rough. BC wins easy.
at NC State. Win. This is a big one and gets people excited that maybe Addazio is getting over the hump.
Louisville. Loss. BC keeps it close, but cannot win.
at Florida State. Loss. In almost the same gameplan as Louisville, Addazio attempts to grind it out but BC cannot score enough.
UConn. Loss. This is a classic BC WTF and kills much of Addazio's goodwill. At this point we realize he's more TOB than he will ever be Urban Meyer.
at Wake Forest. Win. We rally back from the UConn loss, but there is still a bad taste in everyone's mouth.
Finishing 7-5 (4-4 in the ACC) puts BC in a bowl. But no one wants us. We end up in Detroit and play Minnesota. BC wins and Addazio records his first bowl victory and his best season at the Heights, yet it all feels real hollow.
