Off the bat, a huge dislike for the changes to the uniform. The stripes on the sleeves & pants are cheesy and distracting, especially on TV. Let's hope that is the worst thing about this season.

eagleboston said...

"Myles Willis, the sophomore." Ah, he's a senior ESPN.

Uniforms look fine.

ATL_eagle said...

I don't hate the uniforms like I thought I would.

Danny Boy said...

Agreed. The uniforms don't bother me like I thought they would. And I love the Celtic knot work on the helmet stripe. Real nice touch.

Play calling feels super familiar though.

Big Ern said...

New season. Started off run run pass. Sure that caught GT off balance. Thank goodness for the penalty

ATL_eagle said...

It has only been a few plays, but Towles does look athletic.

mod34b said...

It has been this long since BC won an ACC football game:

55,641,600 seconds
927,360 minutes
15,456 hours
644 days
92 weeks
1 year, 9 months, 5 days

Go BC

mod34b said...

Good start

mod34b said...

Well until that

ATL_eagle said...

That whole play seemed rush. The huddle, the subs, bad pass. Ugh.

mod34b said...

Hate ref Ron cherry.
What a drag

eagleboston said...

NO excuse of the offside penalty there. That is not mentally being prepared.

Bravesbill said...

Well after a promising start, they revert back to last year's form.

Big Ern said...

Last play on offense was very disorganized. Daz was asking them to rush it. Why the surprise? Why were we not ready for that play

mod34b said...

Int play was ok play. Poor execution by Towles

eagleboston said...

The first drive was immensely better than last year. Lots of 3rd and shorts. Several first downs. We can build off of that.

Bravesbill said...

Can't get off the damn field now either.

eagleboston said...

Pass coverage has been horrific so far.

Bravesbill said...

It's safe to say the secondary is pretty weak right now.

ATL_eagle said...

Bad. You can't allow GT to pass like that. Not a good start on either side.

eagleboston said...

Not concerned yet. If you remember last season, the BC defense always started slow.

Bravesbill said...

You should be concerned. Even if they get better later they're going to be gassed. Spent half the quarter on the field there.

mod34b said...

Strachan impressive

EasyRider said...

That TD showed how we're going to miss Brown at DC. No way he leaves the perimeter that wide open.

Bravesbill said...

More creative play calling. Run run pass.

eagleboston said...

I am concerned with the penalties. 2 inexcusable offsides penalties and an illegal formation play. Can't do that when you are desperately searching for your first conference win in 2 years.

Bravesbill said...

ATL_eagle said...

That drive was not very reassuring. Towles looked rush. The Line looks just ok. GT doesn't respect our pass.

eagleboston said...

Towles made a bad decision there. 3rd and 9, you have to throw. I would give him one more drive and then see what Wade can do.

Bravesbill said...

Towles has some happy feet too.

mod34b said...

OL looks ok. Making some room for Hilliman and some time for Towles.

Towles needs to settle down

Georgia Eagle said...

Deja vu

Big Ern said...

After first quarter performance Bates should give contract extensions to entire offensive coaching staff. Need that continuity.

campy said...

"We got a shot!" - Wagner Seahawks

Knucklehead said...

That was blitz they should have used on the last 3rd and 15. Keep it up

ATL_eagle said...

That Defensive series was better.

mod34b said...

Starchan. The new Kuechly

Bravesbill said...

Holy crap. A pass on first down.

Knucklehead said...

Father Charlie

ATL_eagle said...

A true first down! The game opens up once they started passing.

Knucklehead said...

Why did they stop passing?

Knucklehead said...

Who is #6? No 6 on the roster.

Knucklehead said...

nice call with the screen

ATL_eagle said...

The problems are different, but the Offense is still frustrating to watch.

eagleboston said...

I thought that was interference on the pass. BC needs to do better in the running game to set up shorter 3rd downs.

Kicking game continues to struggle.

Bravesbill said...

Why the f would you play for a FG on that third down when your kicking game flat out sucks?

Napolean Bonaparte said...

Shit.

Knucklehead said...

Lichentenberg is a punchline

bceagle93 said...

Nice job with the kicking game Daz....

Bravesbill said...

Three damn years and still no kicking improvements.

Georgia Eagle said...

A missed FG. I'm shocked!

mod34b said...

wss kick too low? Or was it bad line play. Thinking kick too low

Big Ern said...

Someone should let Daz know if you want to grind it out, play good d, and be conservative you need an excellent kicking game. How does he not fix this?

eagleboston said...

Bravesbill, I don't have the problem with the play-calling on that drive. It was the execution that was the issue. If they generate some yards on the runs, they have 3rd and short instead of 3rd and long.

Knucklehead said...

At least we don't have fat cheerleaders. Like GT.

Bravesbill said...

I didn't have a problem with the play calling until that third down screen. They actually mixed it up on first down and passed twice. That screen had zero chance though.

Knucklehead said...

Nice fucking hit by Schwab. Another in the line motherfuckers

Bravesbill said...

That screen would have made more sense if they were going to go for it on 4th down.

eagleboston said...

Nice hit by Schwabe! Thomas is going to feel that.

CLB said...

We have that...

mod34b said...

The Oscar Wilde statue looks like Bates! Ga

ATL_eagle said...

Towles still doesn't look that comfortable.

mod34b said...

OL is giving him time.

OL certainly a major improvement over 2015

Knucklehead said...

If Towles "were Tom Brady in the pocket" he wouldn't have transferred.

He looks competent. After last season I will accept competent.

Knucklehead said...

The roster numbers the team has online don't match the players numbers in the game.

ATL_eagle said...

I understand that it is wet, but Towles is not looking like a sharp passer so far.

Knucklehead said...

Danny Boy said...

Towles has a weird throwing motion. It looks like he's actively pulling back on his release (like decelerating a golf swing).

Wish he saw the RB underneath on that last 3rd down. Make the easy pass.

Knucklehead said...

Blitz

ATL_eagle said...

We need points here.

eagleboston said...

Time for a Walker punt return TD

Danny Boy said...

Great play by war daddy.

Knucklehead said...

I quit if he calls a kick block and we get penalized here.

eagleboston said...

My mistake. It looks like Rouse is the punt returner this season.

Bravesbill said...

Rouse has looked good on these punt returns. Thankfully they've left the fair catch at home.

Knucklehead said...

There he is.

eagleboston said...

Clock management again an issue. Running with the clock ticking down.

Knucklehead said...

They need to use their trick play right now. Whatever it is. They need a fucking TD

Knucklehead said...

HAHAHAHAHA

Bravesbill said...

Oh fuck. Typical. What a disaster.

ATL_eagle said...

Towles already feels like a veteran BC QB.

Bravesbill said...

Stupid freaking game management there too.

mod34b said...

Towles is costing BC the game so far

Knucklehead said...

Darius Wade? Serious.

Bravesbill said...

0 points and under 50 passing yards at the half. Seems familiar.

Knucklehead said...

I think he only had one option on that throw and it wasn't open.

Play sucked to.

Big Ern said...

Clock management issues again. Wow. We now know what we have with Daz.

ATL_eagle said...

There is still plenty of Football left, but not a great first half.

Knucklehead said...

If I were Adazzio I would be pissed about the timeout and the run off the timeout with 1 second left.

That was bushleague by Paul Johnson

mod34b said...

Well ok. 7-0 ok


Seeing some good and bad with BC

Overall. Not bad. I see some potential

Bravesbill said...

"We're moving the football right now." Huh? You have 107 total yards on offense. And Towles sucks. Daz is clueless.

mod34b said...

Rain is having big impact too

mod34b said...

Better O than last year.

I think that is Daz's point of reference

eagleboston said...

ESPN is categorizing the second turnover as a fumble, not an interception. Is that correct?

Bravesbill said...

Well sure. Does this mean he gets to claim that they're a winning football team when they go 4-8 this year ha?

Bravesbill said...

Yeah they changed it to a fumble.

mod34b said...

Not great.

But seems like an improved football team.

eagleboston said...

The defense, as with last year, started slow and then looked terrific. Much better play-calling on offense, just need to execute better. Kicking game and clock management still an issue. I think the only way we win this is if the D can force a couple turnovers.

EL MIZ said...

Daz looks so sheepish and not confident on the sideline. what is wrong with him?

tough first half for the O

EL MIZ said...

i’m reluctant to judge Towles in a game where its been raining for hours, balls are heavy and field is slick. he looks like a shifty runner but not much of a passer -- all the throws seem to be a little off the mark and not a ton of zip.

not opposed to seeing Wade for a series just to see how he looks.

for a team that wants to run run run run, we seem to lack the big time running back. Hilliman just sort of plods along.

eagleboston said...

El Miz, I think Rouse needs to be the featured back. He just has a quickness the others lack.

Napolean Bonaparte said...

Did Bates schedule this game in Ireland or did he inherit it?

eagleboston said...

The first 10 minutes will determine if I spill a little Kahlua in my coffee.

ATL_eagle said...

FINALLY!!!

mod34b said...

Sweet. Hilliman. Outrunning DBs. Fast!

eagleboston said...

Did I say Rouse should be the featured back? I thought for sure Hilliman would get caught. What a terrific run!

Napolean Bonaparte said...

Fucking Yes!

eagleboston said...

Looks like it's just coffee for me this morning!

mod34b said...

Eagleboston. What was that about Rouse? :-)

ATL_eagle said...

The good news when the other team crowds the box? Big plays if you break through.

Bravesbill said...

Thank God finally.....with the PAT just barely sneaking in.

eagleboston said...

Addazio needs to know we are in a cardiac game here. He needs to preserve timeouts as this could come down to a final drive.

JBQ said...

Echo. Finally! It was like squeezing a "teen age pimple" but it was nice to hear the song "For Boston".

Knucklehead said...

Deep pass

Knucklehead said...

Wrong

eagleboston said...

Really critical to get a stop here.

Knucklehead said...

Pop. Bitch dropped it

ATL_eagle said...

Now we need to get points on this drive! Huge momentum opportunity.

Knucklehead said...

That half stretch obvious handoff is killing me

Knucklehead said...

Where is Willis?

Knucklehead said...

Father Charlie

Knucklehead said...

Looking good

ATL_eagle said...

That was a great catch by Walker.

Knucklehead said...

Hands. Haven't seen a hands catch like that since Pete Mitchell

Knucklehead said...

Two downs here if you know how to coach.

Knucklehead said...

Nice call.

Hands.

I like it.

Bravesbill said...

So conservative in this part of the field. Go for it.

Knucklehead said...

You know what.

I kick this.

Short kick. Gives kicker confidence.

Get lead.

If you miss they get a long field.

eagleboston said...

And Addazio does it again. 3rd quarter TO in a dangerously close game.

mod34b said...

Prefer a FG.


Line not opening too many interior holes

Bravesbill said...

It's over 35 yards and he's had two terrible kicks. And it's wet and rainy. Have to go for it.

Knucklehead said...

Good call.

mod34b said...

Geez us

Knucklehead said...

Houston, we have a fucking problem.

ATL_eagle said...

Of course he missed it. I don't hate the call though.

mod34b said...

fG still blows.

Unbelievable

Bravesbill said...

Like I fucking said. Go for it Daz you joke. It's always a sure miss when you kick.

eagleboston said...

Great! So you blow a timeout to call a kick when you should have gone for it. I'm losing my patience with Addazio. Bad series of events.

Bravesbill said...

I'm sorry but that was a horrible call ATL.

bceagle93 said...

Unacceptable.

Bravesbill said...

Lichtenberg hasn't shown he can kick ever.

Knucklehead said...

Like I said that kicker is a punchline.

That kick looked like one of my drives when I was learning how to golf.

Kid has no shame either after that closeup he got.

Fixer?

Danny Boy said...

Offense working, momentum on our side. Have some guts and exert our will on them. You don't do that by putting our worst foot forward.

Ram it down their throats. Calling a time out to tuck your tail is ridiculous.

eagleboston said...

You have to go for it in that situation. With most teams, you kick, but with BC's struggles in special teams, you go for it.

Time to see if Knoll can kick.

ATL_eagle said...

The D is prepared for all their running.

Georgia Eagle said...

Why and how in God's name, can't daz recruit a FG kicker in four years? This is so fucking maddening.

Knucklehead said...

Nice throw.

I like this QB.

I like the throws to TE.

I like the size mismatches

Knucklehead said...

Fuck GT

Bravesbill said...

A play action would be nice here.

bceagle93 said...

Looking like we have guys that know how to catch this year.

ATL_eagle said...

I know I am jinxing it, but this drive is going well.

Bravesbill said...

Would have worked with a better pass.

Knucklehead said...

That line is looking stout.

Underneath was open. Poop

eagleboston said...

This is the best drive of the day, but we need points

Knucklehead said...

Yeah Crackers.

ATL_eagle said...

That was a smart play by Towles.

Knucklehead said...

Extra Pt.

Fucking Gravy

Knucklehead said...

Lots of unscored points left on the field.

Fucking kicker.

This game is over if we average joe-dirt as a kicker.

eagleboston said...

So awesome to finally have a quarterback that can pass.

ATL_eagle said...

I think Tech is going to start opening it up in the air. In part because they are down and because it is working.

Bravesbill said...

Secondary exposed again.

Knucklehead said...

Belted.

Knucklehead said...

83 is a bitch. Shut him up, D.

Bravesbill said...

Not good when you can't stop the GT passing game.

eagleboston said...

Bad penalty by Moore.

Knucklehead said...

That was a nice run.

Addazzio needs a timeout here.

Knucklehead said...

Playaction here

Knucklehead said...

Both of those ends were held.

No call is bullshit.

Bravesbill said...

Must be nice to have a real kicker.

eagleboston said...

And they have a kicker. Damn. Another cardiac game. Need to play loose here and be aggressive as with the last drive. Don't play not to lose.

Danny Boy said...

Daz better not go conservative here. Can't kill 6 minutes with a 3 and out. Let the boys play and get back into the end zone.

ATL_eagle said...

I hope Addazio doesn't go too conservative. Moving the ball and scoring is more important that just killing clock.

Knucklehead said...

Jesus

Adidaspete said...

Sickening.

eagleboston said...

Playing not to lose. Bad idea, Addazio

Adidaspete said...

That's the most Dazziest drive that ever Dazzed

ATL_eagle said...

That was about the worst drive you could expect.

Bravesbill said...

Did we expect something different? Playing prevent offense which will morph into a prevent defense, thereby preventing a BC win.

Knucklehead said...

That GT Special Team coach looks like Mick from Rocky.

Dazzio is saying cut me, cut me

Bravesbill said...

Spaz freaking tastic

eagleboston said...

Great, if Tech scores, we will have a minute left and 1 timeout. Kicking game killed us today.

Goberry said...

This offense epitomizes why I never wake up before Noon on weekends.

Bravesbill said...

Short field now

Danny Boy said...

A timeout is not worth 4 seconds on the clock. Just punt it away and save the timeout in case.

TGS said...

More proof that the "Daz" is a 275 pound loud mouth fraud. Talks tough, but coaches like a wuss. As usual, with game on the line, he goes into a shell, coaching not to lose rather than to win.
Win or lose today, there is no real future with this clown in charge.

Knucklehead said...

Opposite. The games should be at 7 am every Saturday.

This team is screwed up. They are fun to watch again though.

mod34b said...

Daz being Daz

Bravesbill said...

Excruciating.

Knucklehead said...

Was his knee down when he threw that?

Knucklehead said...

Awesome

Bravesbill said...

Fucking stupid prevent defense

Knucklehead said...

Weak

ATL_eagle said...

I can't watch.

Knucklehead said...

This defense is legit

TGS said...

Mentally preparing for the worst.
Again, wusses never win.

eagleboston said...

Moore has been terrible today

eagleboston said...

Only 1 timeout left. Thanks, Addazio!!!

Bravesbill said...

Fucking Daz. This is why we can't have nice things.

TGS said...

Poor coaching gets reflected in close games.

CLB said...

UGH
