Louisville blowout of FSU is a shocker
I think we have a chance against Louisville, because Petrino is only in year 3 of his rebuild. Or is it 4?
Just the opposite mindset of our HC - these guys want to continue to roll it up. They have a real chance to hang 70 on FSU - at least!
not feeling bad for FSU at all!
Walker needs to be better with ball security. That's a game-killer.
And the mistakes begin.
Well that's the game.
we miss you donnie brown
Every single game, the defense gives up an early score and then tightens up. This one is on Walker. A team desperate for it's first conference win in 2 years cannot turn the ball over on the road. Just can't do that.
on walker? The drove 60 yards after fumble... its on the D
I'm tired of hearing about our vaunted defense
Such dumb penalties. We are watching the college version of the Buffal Bills.
Mod, legit call. It was a block in the back. And it was so freaking unnecessary.
Block in the back! Mentally the most stupid mistake in football. Again, these are the small things that result in conference losses.
You cannot turn the ball over on the first drive every game.The defense makes a stop and you put htem back on the field quick.Not the defenses fault.Walker should be benched for the half.
looked like he missed him... did not get him in back
What the fuck else can go wrong? Possible blow out coming.
but agree BB no blocked needed there
It is fall. The bar has Harpoon Pumpkin.Get it.
Colorado up 14 on M.The curse of TB
Hilliman doesn't have the acceleration to run outside.
cam moore beat on that one.... lucky
That corner got beat.Do we safties?
Wilis goes for 7 here.
The obligatory turnover and 7 has been a trend for 18 months now.I bet the half ends 10 3 VT.Fucking turnovers.
I don't know who was screaming for Don Brown to come back. He's down 14-0 to flipping Colorado (although only 7 points were the fault of the defense).
Yeah. Good stop.The defense it legit.
screaming for DBrown? i said i missed him....
Too many penalties. That's coaching.
I think that was the first penalty by the o-line this season(or one of very few)
Why isn't Willis running the ball?
Bull shit. EB.
did frosh elijiah johnson #76 replace Cashman #72 at LG?
I don't blogspot is very smart. I am not a fucking robot.
Another wasted Daz time out
#74 gets a lot of false starts for a 5th year guy. 1st and 15 equals #32 up the middle. How did VT prepare for that?
Mod,Yeah. I like his game. Did you see him take a swipe at the VT linebacker. We need some attitude up front.
announcers are very pro VT ..... the usual
And another three and out. This is so much fun.
BS Georgia,He called a TO to avoid a turnover inside his 5 yardline.Jesus.
Kn - i did not see that... good though to have some edge
Allen is an animal. He is like Hovan but on the edge.
4 penalties in the first quarter alone. This team is extremely undisciplined.
We need to stop them on this drive. Addazio has never come back from 14 while at BC.
Nice tackle there.The D is good. We miss simmons though.Too much cushion.
EB,Enter Sandman with a rookie QB.Settle down.
Knuck - didn't #74 get several false starts in Dublin? That's what I remember.
&4 lowry is not living up to expectations yet... yes several flags this year
Play action here from VT.Our Defense has to know that,
short slant killing D
Correct Big. At the very end. When it was essentially over.Fucking playaction.Come one.
and every other pattern lol....
Now it is time to open up the game.
Game over. BC offense cannot score enough points to keep up with this team. 10 straight conference losses. Addazio needs to go.
And the rout begins. We are a FBS team with FCS talent. Mod has been warning us daz is dead last in ACC recruiting. These are the results.
Where there a lot against GT? In person I don't pay as much attention to the statistics
This might get ugly.
Towles didn't even wait there. He just felt the heat.
Look for Wade to get PT here. Either forced by injury or because of blowout.I would like to see a play action to Jeffie poo(smith).
Skinny post after skinny post.
The OL has made zero improvement from last year. So discouraging
Colorado. 21-7.That number went from 21 to 18.5 this morning. Now I know why.
TC for HC & AD in '17
Mississippi just converted 3rd and 4 against Alabama.I don't remember ever seeing a team do that.When the Louisville game? They are going to eviscerate us.
Michigan should still crush Colorado knuckle. Don't worry.
Yeah.BC will buyout his $30 million Phili contract and sign him for $20 million. With the ACC money. Then Tom will give all the buyout money gets to charity. Then he will have a heart attack(he is 75 years old) and retire.
42 point turnaround predicited by Braves.Fucking awesome Observer impersonation
But we have Daz's comprehensive 5 point philosophy of playing football to fall back upon.....
Need points here...obviously.
I said they'd crush Colorado. 20+ point spread is pretty high though.
Hhahaha. Yes bceagle93.
Jesus Braves. I was talking about the spread.
I wish Towles would have seen the flag. Wasted play.
Why is Towles throwing ahead of the sticks on third down? And he had a free play to boot.
That reminds me of the "555" plan from that "dude" who ran for president in 2012.Fucking Herman Cain.The philandering fast food magnate.Addazio should try to sell his meatball company to Herman.
What was that pass?
This is not good.
I know I'm being a fair weather fan, but I'm switching to Bama-Old Miss. This is ugly and infuriating. Call me when Daz is fired.
Do I have to go to Wagner next weekend? Hopefully it snows or some shit.
What's the upgrade from Frank Spazadufus and Gary Nyquill?
I don't mind them going up tempo. I think our base can handle it.
Mod,Who is #94.
Was it 999? Jesus sorry.
We need a spark. I'm not a big fan of pulling quarterbacks, but I'm also not a fan of punt-fumble-punt-punt-punt.
We're going into the prevent with a 14 point deficit.
7 yards on 9 Rb carries.OL not good
For a fifth year, Towles doesn't have a lot of poise.
These comments are hilarious. Love the in-game reactions. On every play.
God, this rough.The QB did a good job there.FUCK.Decent kick.
This defensive secondary situation is scary. Is it bad coaching and play calling?I'm ready to see Wade. This play calling is unwatchable.Foster can pressure Towles with a 3 man rush.
Pass interference?? I'm not seeing it
Crappy calls this game against BC. It's BS
Allen. Like I said.
yay sack by zach
Fairfield county animal.
CT, we're passionate, fired up and love BC. We don't play it safe on this board. We wear our emotions on our sleeves and often make comments we later regret. But, that's what makes it fun. The announcers can give the boring play-by-play. We provide the commentary.
Also, the Beamer commentary got old real fast.
jesus shit.This drive defines Addazios career.Not kidding.if he runs three times and kicks and gives up 3-7 pts with 2 minutes to go he should be fired to tonight.
I can't believe Beamer does corporate speaking. That's got to be a painful event.
BJK Daz always has brain farts in the last 2 minutes of half and game.
beamer always sounds like he is drunk... marble mouth
BJK #1 runplay #2 is....
#2 is a RUN!!
#3 is a _____________
HERE WE GO.
#3 incomplete.... brilliant
Towles is having a rough, rough game.
Where was holding call?The back got held, NOO?
Wasn't yelling at you knuckle. Just got excited that someone remembered it ha.
Refs are definitely missing calls for BC.
net 20 yard punt..
65 yards of total offense, 6 punts, 1 turnover. The offense can only go up from here.I saw a block in the back on that punt return, but of course, the refs did not call that one.
Fucking home job.ATL,Turn off the Robot verification thing please?
That was a great throw and catch. Not much you can do there.
Why do we subject ourselves to this week after week and year after year? Ugh, the agony of being a BC football fan!
Jesus. Shit.Try the Harpoon pumpkin. Still the best American made brewski.
We all knew this was coming. In college, it's pretty easy to score. The fact that Daz has Bo Schembechler on his brain...
Knucklehead:I have to deal with the robot check too. It is a google thing.
1. FSU - 0-142. Duke 7-93..Wake 0-34..Clem 17-345. Lville 14-176. VT 10-267. NCSu 8-248. SYR 17-209. GT 14-1710..VT 0-21 ….????
Anyone want to start a pool on how long before Dazoshit gets fired?
I don't think Loeffler changed the playbook when he moved from VT. I should have known.
If VT uses its time outs, they will have time for another score.Bring on Wade for some spark, Addazio.
Why bother even watching? Haven't been since they went down 14-0. So many better games on.
ATL,Thank you sir.A 7 here would things interesting.
Lucky, but I'll take it.
Wow do we need talent on the outside.
VT took it easy on us. It could be much worse.
Well. We only have about 20 games before we re-build.
12 carries by RB for 17 yard in first half6-17 passing 35% 1 picBC 93 yardsVt 193 yards
I want Addazio gone so we can bring in P.J. "Row the Boat" Fleck or the North Dakota State coach. This program has done nothing but regress since Addazio got his own recruits in the program.
I need some Harpoon Pumpkin Ale.
That Alabama QB got destroyed.Only an idiot would be able to get up after that hit.There fucking helmet fragments flying.
I should have gone to good Ole Miss. They have talent everywhere.
Down 21 zip and all the Daz kiss asses are finally jumping ship. Thank God. He won't be canned until every last supporter like Knucklehead has called for his head.
EB, the program definitely hasn't regressed. We haven't hit the lows of Spaz. Those were tough years. But it has only been marginally better.
I think we should fire Daz right after this game. I don't know how any BC fan, alumni, student, parent or employee can watch this without throwing up. It's embarrassing. I think my high school team can beat a Daz coached BC team. At least we would run some plays on offense to try to win.
Halftime stat: Plays run from inside the 50 on offense: BC--2, VT--22.
Daz's *REVISED* 5 Point Philosophy for Playing Football:1. Score more points than the other team2. Get Che Chi to kick field goals3. Check on that QB transfer prospect from Smith College4. Start calling everyone in Bristol "dude"5. If you don't score more than the other team, always blame the players.Unfortunately, the humor in all of this is fading fast.....
TGS,I said he should get fired last year. Especially after the Wake game. I went fucking nuclear.The GT loss was not his fault.
Interesting, the ESPn "Computer predictor" does not think all that much of VT.. has them with less than 30 chance of beating UNC, Pitt and Miami,We are getting blasted by a so-so team
Lane Kiffen would be a perfect fit for BC.Some asshole actually called for it last week.http://themaroonandgold.weebly.com/
It's hyperbole, but I've never seen a worse coach than Dazoshit. Fire him tonight and let an AC finish an already lost season.Good game over at Old Miss.
Braves,Is M going to outscore Colorado by 26, from here out, to cover?
BC is not running into the middle of the line that much - not as much as i thought. they would ..... maybe Lefty knows it is futile with the bad OL....
Ill predict a 14 point win. Convincing but not enough to cover.
On the bright side, Daz does know how to lose LIKE A BOSS.
I'd take Art Briles over Kiffin any day. You know that guy isn't going to screw up with everyone watching him closely.
#5 above is what makes Daz different than other bad football coaches. His constant habit of blaming 19 and 20 "kids" for his own incompetence is what makes him the worst coach in the nation and the worst in BC history.Anyone hear remember Beamer accepted the BC job before changing his mind and BC went back to Coughlin.While Coughlin was the absolute best, you wonder if Beamer would have made us a consistent top 20 program like he did for most of his tenure for VT.
Beamer would have probably used BC as a stepping stone.
We need to throw passes to Callinan(of all people) and draw some PINT calls.If we can score a TD on the first drive and stop them cold we have a chance here.If the first two drives aren't a TD and a 3 and out it is over.
VT was nothing special when Beamer got there. Maybe he'd have stayed awhile and built BC into something like he did at VT.
Briles is a complete scumbag. Look at his eyes.Kniffen is a knucklehead. If someone gives him a chance as an HC he won't fuck it up. He might not do a great job but he won't be condoning hookers and coke like Briles.
TGS,No fucking way the Vick brothers were given acceptance letters to Boston College.
Not an excuse, but they're showing replays where it is clear VT is committing PI. Not getting any calls, though
. . . They made Beamer what he is and it really isn't much. One national title game?Fine, good. Nothing great for 40 years of coaching.
He is a scumbag but he's infinitely better than Kiffin. Has Kiffin won anything anywhere?
walker.....big mental errors
Yeah Benji,That is why I said we need to throw some passes to Callinan. If the refs aren't corrupt we should get some make-up calls in the second half.
KHead, I keep forgetting that BC is above reproach (in your silly, naive eyes). Those two gambling scandals and the night school mess were just mirages. Grow up tool.
Briles is not an option. Like the Leach talk a few years ago. And the Pearl talk.Boston College is not hiring scumbag retreds.Kiffen isn't a complete scumbag, just a wiseass baby who can recruit.Here is an analogy for you. Briles is like WellsFargo. Kiffen is like Bank of America.
How was that not holding!?! Jeez, these refs aren't calling crap
There was holding on that chunk play. But, they are on the spot calling penalties on BC.
They're going to call that PI!?!? BS!!!!!!!
#14 is a complete idiot. No fundamentals or discipline. All on Daz.
These refs suck
TGS,Did you forget that we have been clean since then? The approach is to keep the program clean.Do you understand now?
I gave you two great coaching prospects. The ND State guy has defeated 6 straight FBS teams. P.J. Fleck at Western Michigan is awesome too.
That was a fairly legit call. You can't push the receiver with your off hand. Don't even need to do that either when you have good position.
so i guess it is fair to say that the defense has taken a huge step backwards from last year,
Beaner "wasn't much" Khead?Beamer won 7 league titles and was coach of the year 3 times. He went 280-143, went to 10 "major" bowl games, and won 10 bowl games in 22 attempts.Never let the facts influence your opinion you stooge.
and the offense has taken one baby tsp forward -- to no avail
Cheer up, gang. Basketball season is right around the corner.
I'd be okay with losing if we were legit getting beat. But these guys have quit on Daz. Even the D is done. Fire him now, let Pasqualoni finish out the season & let's jump start the search. How much more do we need to see?
This sucks to watch.BC is not competitive at all.
With no offense, a blow out was only a matter of time.The fact that we are regressing offensively - and are now as bad as last year - is pitiful.But Brad said we'd be better next year.In Brad we trust. Let's go, Addazio - bring on Wade - he's the future. Or burn the Freshman's redshirt, you dipshit.
TGS, please make your points without vicious personal attacks. You have a BC education. Use it.
Completely laughable. Louisville might hang 80 on BC.
Ha ha ha ha.
74 lowry missed that last block. hapless
TGS,You missed the point. The Vick brothers made VT a respected program nationally.The Vick brothers were not going to get into Boston College. Beamer would not have had that success at Boston College.Similar to argument about Calhoun making BC great like UCONN. Calhoun wanted the BC job but the board did not want him representing BC.
syracuse might hang 50 on BC
there are two things you must have to have a winning football program---players and good coaching. we are severely lacking in both. no need to expound on what's happening today. i can only hope that this embarrassing low cycle we are in will end sooner rather than later. thank god i have the red sox, patriots and bc hocky
B of A has paid 4x more in total fines than WFC. So How is B of A like Briles and WFC Kiffen?
At this rate, Wagner might hang 6 and we could still lose.
BC almost has as many penalties as punts.
daz on sideline talking to nobody. way to go meat head
