In-game comments post: Florida State

BC's last chance to make a statement this year. BC's last chance to beat a ranked team. Or if you want to be less ambitious, this is BC's last chance to avoid another blowout to an elite team.

Leave your thoughts and comments below.

There will also be a postgame Periscope.

BC basketball off to a resounding start. Down 12-0 to open the game ha.

Georgia Eagle said...

Please, please, let's not be embarrassed on national TV one time.

Bravesbill said...

Which team will embarrass itself more tonight?

ATL_eagle said...

Addazio signals to the whole world he's going to pound it tonight.

ATL_eagle said...

The screen was there!

ATL_eagle said...

All of our "special plays" look really sloppy.

Bravesbill said...

This has got to be one of the worst halves of basketball I've ever seen.

John said...

FSU moving too easily.

Bravesbill said...

That TD was way too easy. Good Lord BC athletics suck.

ATL_eagle said...

That was way too easy. No pressure at all.

Benjamin said...

We are soooooooo good at football.

eagleboston said...

I think the defense has just plain given up. Also, is it just me or does it appear our defensive backs never look back to the ball? It seems fundamental to me but perhaps there is a reason they are not looking back.

ATL_eagle said...

Willis doing it all by himself.

marcos said...

I hope you're not referring to the throwback screen, ATL. They were all over it. Other screen was almost picked off

ATL_eagle said...

Enough with the Wildcat.

marcos said...

Now that the "special plays" are on tape, they're not gonna work anymore for the most part. Teams are ready after the NCSU game. Gotta come up with some new wrinkles

Bravesbill said...

Such terrible play calling. Why does BC try to run it to the edge against such a vastly superior athletic team?

ATL_eagle said...

That was really stupid.

Bravesbill said...

What a fucking stupid decision. Terrible decision. Terrible execution. Just terrible.

ATL_eagle said...

That roughing call cost BC seven points.

JBQ said...

A pass goes right through the hands of Jeff Smith. Then, we rough the kicker. Both were good ideas and well executed but poor coaching. Smith has "hands of stone". In practice, you throw to him in practice until his hands are raw. Roughing the kicker, you are taught to aim for a point in front of the kicker's foot. It's the small things that are killing the Dazzler. Coughlin would coach the small things.

marcos said...

The timing is all screwed up on the plays Smith has come in motion in front of the QB. Poor coaching & execution

Eagle Esquire said...

BC will never be formidable with Daz. Period.

Bravesbill said...

Basketball team still down double digits in the second half.

ATL_eagle said...

The DLine needs to get more pressure.

ATL_eagle said...

That was huge.

ATL_eagle said...

Play Wade at this point. What is there to lose?

Benjamin said...

I'm with you Bill. If Wade is our future, play him. Addazio shouldn't be playing for his job. He should be playing for our university.

Bravesbill said...

The announcers needs to stop saying the BC defense is stout. Making it obvious they do no homework.

ATL_eagle said...

Get Jones out there. Enough with Hilliman.

ATL_eagle said...

I thought he caught it.

Benjamin said...

That was a freaking catch!!!!

Bravesbill said...

BC basketball lost. Can we just fire the entire athletic department at this point?

Bravesbill said...

And there was no way that was not a catch. Conclusive evidence too

Barnyard said...

I think Addazio should stick with Towles in the second half. The coach knows what he's doing and we should cut him some slack.

CrimsonEagle95 said...

I really feel for the content editors who have to put together this season's highlight disc for the athletic department and Flynn Fund donors. Second half parlor game for EiA readers: What would your title for it be?

Barnyard said...

MBBall lost? No joke?

working rich said...

Now is the time.


BC could not play worse offensively

Bring in wade.

Barnyard said...

Well, cut Christian some slack too. It takes a while to find some good players.

We don't have any in CT, NY, and NJ.

Wagner beat UConn, so, just saying.

Get behind our coaches - they have a plan.

The plan is steal as long as you can, pad the retirement account and play the scoop, students and alumni like SUCKERS. And blame the players until they improve on their own.

working rich said...

Taking a knee before the half - a running play is the same.

Throw the bomb
Open it up

Ya gotta score to win

bceagle91 said...

Nicholls State 79-73. And to think, we extended Christian another year after 0-18 in ACC play last year. It's a good thing we still have hockey.

Barnyard said...

It's not a good thing we still have Bates.

EL MIZ said...

@Benjamin, even if Daz is playing for his job he should play Wade. Towles stinks!

Georgia Eagle said...

ATL, please start covering hockey. Give us something to cheer for.

Barnyard said...

Here we go, Addazio. Show us something.

I have an idea. Towles and run up the middle.

Barnyard said...

Fire Loeffler tonight. Oh, I forgot. Addazio got him a 2 year guaranteed contract.

Historically bad and BC is tolerating it.

Napolean Bonaparte said...

Men's basketball loses to Nicholls State - Nicholls was predicted to finish last in the Southland Conference. Women's basketball lost their opener to Hartford. Good sign as to how ACC ready we will be.

BC has allowed itself to become a pathetic fucking loser. Will it ever end?

Henry K said...

Maybe we should just stop all sports, except hockey. We have become everyone's Wagner. Just a question ? Are there any bball season ticket holders ? Can't imagine.

Bravesbill said...

What the hell is a Nicholls St anyways? The game wasn't even as close as the score indicated. Nicholls had a double digit lead through most of the game and was even up 18 in the first half.

mod34b said...

Most boring football game.

mod34b said...

Men hoops massively blows too.


Thanks brad bates

ATL_eagle said...

The Wildcat stuff is a total waste of time.

mod34b said...

Uconn loses to Wagner in hoops. Ha ha ha

ORDEagle said...

Is there any accountability left for guys that get paid 7 figures?

ATL_eagle said...

We still have another quarter of this. Ugh.

Barnyard said...

FSU holding on every play.

Let's stick with Towles, run it up the middle, soften them up and eat up some clock.

This is a good plan and Addazio/Loeffler, Loeffler/Addazio know hat they're doing.

Stick with the plan, Steve. We admire a guy who will stick to his guns.

mod34b said...

Silver lining: makes Daz departure more likely

Barnyard said...

This is real - it's not a joke.

ORDEagle said...

Towles is so inaccurate

Georgia Eagle said...

I'm embarrassed to be a BC fan. No longer wear BC clothing.

ATL_eagle said...

The D has actually been okay tonight.

ATL_eagle said...

There was so much holding on that last touchdown.

Barnyard said...

But let's leave him in. SEC experience.

35 to 0 and let's try to soften them up and eat some clock.

mod34b said...

getting to blow out numbers.....

good... hate to say it.... but to quote Nick Lowe "You've gotta be cruel to be kind, in the right measure"

anything to get Daz the hell out of Chestnut Hill is needed... Loeffler too and incompetent Reid...

ORDEagle said...

That sounds like an excuse, but they really are getting away with pretty obvious holds on most plays. Maybe the refs think they are doing us a favor by keeping the clock moving.

janebc said...

Ironic, since we beat NC State. But its noteworthy that a writer for the Charlotte Observer has penned a piece saying that BC is not pulling its weight in the ACC. Hopefully, the powers that be take note

EL MIZ said...

what's amazing is we were actively TRYING to lose games we literally could not be doing any worse. basketball and football both disasters. we gave Christian a one-year extension last year after he went 0-18, and with this crew i don't see more than 1-2 ACC wins, if that. unbelievable!!!!!! #DRAINTHEHEIGHTS

EL MIZ said...

*IF we were actively trying to lose, we could not be doing worse

EL MIZ said...

down 35-0 in the 4th quarter, what can possibly be the point of having Towles still playing? just baffling, truly unbelievable ineptitude.

ORDEagle said...

Maybe we can ask for a running clock

ATL_eagle said...

That kicks was impressive. Good for that kid.

Barnyard said...

Let's get the ball back and ride Towles.

Up the middle. Let's get the record for 3 and outs.

38 to 0.

Let's try Wade and hand off up the middle.

In all seriousness, the players need to give Addazio the bird and play football.

Addazio is the dumbest football coach I have ever seen.

Too bad he's at BC.

Keep stealing, Steve. Pad that retirement account.

Barnyard said...

Someone needs to be fired tonight.

Max said...

I am reminded of an old Warner Brothers cartoon with Daffy Duck and Bugs Bunny - the quote being..."Shoot me now. Don't wait till you get home". I have never been so disgusted with BC football. If you can't play the elites why bother making the trip. This staff should be fired. Bates should be gone as in the 4th quarter. Bill Flynn is rolling over in his grave. I forgot who coined the phrase but GTFOOMA

Bravesbill said...

Still less than 100 total yards on offense haha. So bad.

ATL_eagle said...

Jimbo Fisher might make this ugly.

Edmonds 632 said...

Is this a 4th all time worst loss in just this one season alone?

Edmonds 632 said...

Converted a third down...

ATL_eagle said...

Here come the Anthony Brown talk.

ATL_eagle said...

Daz might avoid the shutout!!

Big Jack Krack said...

The 4 Elites 202 - BC 17.

Mod will give us the stats.

The Biology Major scores!!!!

202 to 24.


BC fan since the 1960s said...

To put the basketball game in perspective.

They lost AT HOME to a team that was 11-23 last year and plays in one of the weakest Division 1 conferences.

Edmonds 632 said...

What a shambles

Mario Rigatoni said...

Why does Wade look fat as shiz?

ATL_eagle said...

We are stilling doing a post game periscope. Join after the game ends.

Mario Rigatoni said...

No thanks

eagleboston said...

Mod, do you think Bates will fire Addazio? It sounds like they will not renew Bates' contract but his contract does not run out until the end of the academic year. I highly doubt he will fire Addazio as he is walking out. Further, if BC beats Wake and UCONN, they are going bowling. I doubt BC will fire a 6-6 coach.

He should be fired. I just doubt it will happen.

This is a systemic, multi-year (perhaps decade) issue for BC. When Addazio is fired, we will struggle massively to find anyone that wants to take on this challenge.

bceagle91 said...

ATL, spare yourself the second viewing. Once is more than enough.

Big Jack Krack said...

White uniforms and rib protection guards make players look bigger.

Mario Rigatoni said...

Good point BJK

mod34b said...

EB - Daz needs to be fired....regardless of by who and regardless of where bates is at...

Daz cannot compete in ACC. must go

Big Jack Krack said...

Well, I don't see how this team can get up for UConn, but maybe I'm wrong.

And then it's on to Winston Salem, NC.

I have the brown grocery bag ready for the Wake Forest Game.

nceaglefan said...

My God Brad Bates took a big steaming dump on our athletic program, will take years to get over. Good call Atl with your concern about hoops program couple weeks back. Sister Christian oh the time has come!

mod34b said...

as Daz recently explained, there are 3 groups of teams on the schedule

4 "elites" (FSU, CLem, Lville, VT)
4 middle-schmidles ACC teams (NCSU, SYr, Wake, GT)
4 Cupcakes. (wager Buff, UMass and UConn)

elites you go 0-4 and then win 80% of the Schlubs and cupcakes... 6-6.. is all Dz wants.. and that sucks!!

Barnyard said...

He'll be lucky to get it. What a stiff!

Let's go BC. You're on the hot seat. What are you going to do?

Ever to Suck!

Big Ern said...

What a capstone to the Bates era. Today sums it all up perfectly. Can't believe BC sent mea request for money yesterday. Pound sand.

Deacon Drake said...

Must clean house... clearly we have recruited AA talent... even when we had AA talent before, they were coached up. These guys are coached down and would struggle to compete in the IVY League.
