A Boston College sports blog capturing the highs and lows of being a BC fan living 1,000 miles from Chestnut Hill.
I won't be commenting today, as I'm going to the GT - Duke game.85 degrees in Atlanta today.It's Homecoming and campus parking and tailgating opened at 7:00am.What do you think of that, Brad. And my parking pass was $20.00 - and what do you think of that, Brad?Go BC Players - beat NC State in spite of your AD and HC!
NCSU 36 BC 7
Figure we lose this one by 40
Jesus. Towles starting.
Looks like Towles is starting. Mistake.
Here we go...
Towles will have a huge run on those read options if he keeps it.
Got to catch that. Drive killer.
How many drops this season?
Has Addazio ever called a fake punt in 4 years? Ever?
Typical BC. 3rd and long. Give up a big completion. And throw in a free 15 for good measure.
Terrible on third down on D.
Got the stop.
First down! Drink!
I've never played QB, but is it really that hard to play one style one year then play another style of offense? The excuse making for Towles is titesome
Jones made a great move, but oh, how did he fumble? Heads up play by Lowery.
Losing is a habit. These guys are pros at making big plays and then losing the ball.
Wow how the hell do they call that for NC State? These refs should be publicly executed.
How does NC St get awarded that ball?
looked like BC recovered? what the deal
hate Ron Cherry
Maybe best offensive play in last month ends with a turnover....
no replay of fumble either..no review ....southern justice
Pasqualoni taking over, is not a big deal. He called plays last week.
Rouse..... omg! but penalty interference... phew...
That has to be interference!!!
Watched it again, 3 ncsu guys surrounded it on the ground, none actually had it, BC guy dives in and pops it out. BC recovers. They awarded possession early I guess.
ATl how do you know Pasq is calling defense? Isn't Reid upstairs connected by radio?
Uh oh, do we need to respect Reid's privacy?
Defesne is looking decent today
Need some points here.
D looks like they're up for it...maybe the offense can get something going to actually help them out.
Bill, What have you heard about Pasqualoni was calling plays last week? Isn't kind of odd that your d coordinator is available, but not doing his job?
Great throw there.
Nice catch and gain. Keep those coming.
Announcerz said Reid has some health issue. Missed what exactly.
That was a catch!
razzle dazzle... but good try
Have to score a TD.
Use the play action like we did against Georgia Tech.
Not a bad quarter. Needs seven here.
0-0 ater 1. Result.
Come on need TD
Ha, NC State should take the penalty.
Bad play all together.
What? They didn't want to give us another shot at a TD?3-0 BC.
Daz wins first Quarter. Time to Turtle
Great job, D!
The Wildcat...I guess we will try anything.
These passes look sharp. Which is strange.
Towles had so much time. Why is he scrambling?
Shovel pass was a great call.
And now he just scrambled into pressure.
Well this drive has collapsed nicely.
Towles killed this drive all by himself.
Towles flunked his QB class test on pocket presence.
Could really use a turnover here.
Great call by NC State. BC sold out on the run and look what happened.
Remember when we used to use safetys?
Bc takes risk on D, and pays for it
Well BC had the lead deep into the 2nd Quarter. Is that progress?
As soon as senses pressure -- which is too soon by any standard - he loses his mind and makes bad decisions..
ATL - yes an important moral victory to lead for so long
also, for Daz, beating the spread is also a win.. and that counts for this 'young' team
ATL & CT - do 90% of southern women have blonde hair? every fan shot is blondes!
wow!!! 60 yard TD
The development of Smith's been Bright spot thus year
Our DBs seem clueless this year.
Huge play by the D.
YES. Crushed him on 4th.
Hate the play calling here. Get the ball at mid field after a turnover, you need to take a shot downfield.
Wow. Addazio went for it!!
Horrible 4th down call. What a waste of field position.
stupid to go for it there
Daz is fighting for his job!!
Yeah because they didn't get it.
just a ill conceived play
Overall the D is playing well.
That entire possession was a waste. You have momentum, so go downfield once. No problem going for it on fourth down but it was too far for a qb sneak.
Towles is so awful.
Towles makes so many poor decisions...
I noticed the blonde thing, too. Yeah, strange. OC is ballin' out on the playbook.
How many times can he ground it this game?
edmonds: every 6 minutes
It looks like Towles is always falling backward while throwing now.
suddenly Towles starts clicking...
The WRs and TEs are bailing Towles out.
I am liking all these passes. Keep the foot on the accelerator.
Gross. Knoll didn't even have a chance. This is why they constantly lose.
So...call timeout and leave State with over a minute to play with? The hell?
That was a mess. Especially considering the timeout.
Things that make you go hmmmm. This has got to be at least 3 games in a row where Daz has done this.
BC gets away with holding WR??
pick it off
block that kickblock that kick
stop tat 4th
What a weird final two minutes.
ATL - leading at half is a moral victoryis this BC first lead in ACC in first half?
I hope someone other than Daz is keeping track of downs, distance, and who gets the ball coming out of halftime. That was pretty embarrassing.
lotta coach gibberish saying nothing at all, except we will stick with our plan and make no adjustments..
I don't dislike Daz. I just wished he coached better.
Bad way to start the half.
Good start to the half...nice kickoff...
As I keep saying. Bring pressure!!!
No way they can ovverturn that fummble
Need seven here!
I'm starting think we can win. I am setting myself up for disappointment
i'm so conflicted part of me hopes they would lose to rid us of daz and bates yet i'm a staunch bc alum and fan and must in the end root for them to win---just like the pres electionvoting for the lesser of 2 evils!!!!!
Oh wait. Maybe not
2nd and 13 and they are running the ball?? Huh??
What a wasted possession. Five runs and one bad pass.
This is why we have a massive ACC losing streak. You get a gift from your defense and are forced to settle for 3 points yet again. Not scoring those 2 TDs is going to come back to haunt us. Calling a run on that 2nd and 13 situation was ridiculous.
Have to get 7. Inability to punch it in will kill us just like it always does when we actually manage to keep it close
Why is this clown still the quarterback???Addazio, you moron!!
Huge, huge play.
Towles is going to cost Addazio his job.
This is clearly out of bounds
That's the game. Another ACC loss.
You have to be kidding me
That was indisputable evidence?
Snatching defeat again from the jaws of victory.
Put Wade in. Why not?
BC will always disappoint. ALWAYS. Just like the Cubs. The only time in the 33 years I have been watching BC football where they did not disappoint was Flutie and Company in '84. They had the Miracle in Miami pass and the Cotton Bowl victory. Every team since has sucked me in and, ultimately, disappointed.
Gotta put something together
Face mask. Bull shit Ron cherry sux
As predicted, settling for those 2 redzone fieled goals is now haunting BC.
Dark. Very dark EB
I'm still in shock that we actually made the FGs. The FG kicking PTSD from past seasons is still very real.
They should do away with field refs and put them all on tv monitors. Would speed up the game.
Yeah. It's coming back
I think that is probably game.
Got lucky on that series
Cherry is saving us and killing us...it works both ways.
Bailed out big time by that ineligible receiver downfield.And we burn a TO on their punt? smh.
Except he makes up the BC penalties - Fake face mask. No recovery on funble
Great job Addazio! Now you have 2 timeouts left for that final game winning drive.
Cherry inserts himself into games too much. Effects wins/loss. Has been that way for years. Terrible
Need FG here. (Can only hope for so much)
Towles throws so many too high.
Towels must be blinded by sun. Way off on passes
You have to give your guys a chance, dude. Crazy.
Just turned to the Louisville game. Jackson is amazing! Can't wait to see him live at Alumni next week.
Wade must be horrific if he can't beat out Towles.
Great catch by Sweeney.
Just sneak it.
Why is every 3rd short treated like goal line stand ?Wait. I was just surprised by edge rush. Ha. Complaint withdrawn
This offense is like watch to rats fuck behind a 7-11
Another drive-killing penalty
Towles can't hit the simplest of passes. So inaccurate.
Hope beck not hurt. Looked nasty
Too bad for Walker. That looks bad.
I also cannot believe we tried to ice their punter.
We are in FG range!!!
No ice of punter. Punt return team not fully set up.
broken record, but, really have to get a td from this.
That was a great call!
OC crushing it
I am enjoying BC football. Been a long time
Play to win Daz. Please
Now, defense, please stop them.
The letdown is going to be crushing.
The first ACC win or perfect set up for disappointment? That is the question
And, like typical BC, they give up a massive return and lose the kicker
Fuck as to knoll hurt too???
Losing is a habit and these boys are hooked on it like heroin.
Wow. Dissappointment is coming so fast.
There we go
I think we are going to win! I think I might have to partake in a celebratory beer. I'm in shock.
Nice win. On the road. Daz back for another yr!
What is this?! A VICTORY formation?!
Yay. Great win. !! Finally.
That's a big weight.
Pasq and loeffler. - ok Daz too - get it done.
We won? CALL THE LAWYERS - EXTEND ALL THE CONTRACTS!!!!!!
MVP to the OC.
Saturdays haven't felt so nice in quite a while
Got to give the devils their due. Great game all around!!! Coaches actually performed, notwithstanding the atrocious calls!!! Go Eagles!!!!
