In-game comments post: Wake Forest

I will be at the game, so I don't know how often I will be posting or commenting during the game. Hopefully it is such a one-sided affair in BC's favoring that I can share only happy thoughts! BC and Addazio could really use a win. Another losing season (even with a bowl invite) is hard to spin.

Leave your thoughts and comments below.

Whatever happened to Alex Amidon? Did he go in to the Navy and become a SEAL?

google it

Bravesbill said...

This guy has asked the same question in 4 different posts now.

JBQ said...

Very perplexing state of affairs.

TGS said...

Some random items from the first few pages of the most recent edition of the BC magazine:

1 DNC Chairwoman Donna Brazile spoke at BC Council for Women meeting
2 the VP of Diversity for Walgreens has joined the BC BOT
3 new core courses such as the science and ethics of climate change have been added
4 Leahy announced a new initiative to deal with inner city income inequality
5 the women's council has started a mentorship program for female students

Identify politics at its finest. So tell me again how BC is different than any of the other bastions of liberalism that exist to coddle and baby the millennial generation, while promoting pathetic PC ideals of diversity and inclusion?

Btw, the school just raised $1.6 billion in its latest fundraising campaign.

Georgia Eagle said...

I hear ya, TGS. If BC wanted real diversity they would hire a few straight white male conservatives. Does anyone know of ANY Republicans at BC?

mod34b said...

TGS take your politics and shove them..... no one cares about this crap here....

Benjamin said...

Weird start to the game. D is looking good though

Georgia Eagle said...

As far as the game goes, is it on the ACC network Atlanta affiliate?

Georgia Eagle said...

Two outstanding games in Michigan-Ohio st and UGA-Tech

Danny Boy said...

The defense is looking stout so far. I like the push they're getting.

Danny Boy said...

Miles Willis just makes things happen. The RB rotation should be him and jones all day.

Danny Boy said...

And this rotating RBs every down is ridiculous. Let someone get a rhythm.

Georgia Eagle said...

How can you guys pass up the mich-ohio at game????

rgmarine said...

love our defense. if the offense can not play scared and stop with the hillerman crap up the middle we might just win this game.

Danny Boy said...

GE, it's easy, I'm a Boston college fan. If they're playing, they're what is on my tv.

Georgia Eagle said...

I'll watch later. Mich-St game is a classic. In overtime.

TGS said...

Mod, change your tampon and put on a real game, Michigan OSU.

TGS said...

If heard if the Daz gets a win today, we will accept an invite to play BC High in the Eat Shit Bowl at Parsons Field in Brookline.

Chris said...

BC offense is so bad, it's hard to believe that they've scored 10 points.

Georgia Eagle said...

Ohio St - Michigan. What a game !!!!

TGS said...

That pro Ohio State spot was iffy.

TGS said...

If you really care about BC football, you'll be rooting for WF today. 6-6 with2 wins to close out the season gets the idiot Daz another year.
5-7 does not.

Danny Boy said...

It gets to 2nd and 25 and addazio immediately gives up on the half. Lovely.

Chris said...

BC offense wooffff!!

Danny Boy said...

Addazio is gutless. 3 time outs, needs 30 yards for a field goal, and he runs to the locker room. Thank goodness the defense showed up.

JBQ said...

Wake is totally inept on offense. BC is adequate. With their good defense, this is bad news for the dump Addazio crowd.

TGS said...

At halftime Daz told reporter the brutal 1:15 flight followed by the 15 minute bus ride to hotel are the reasons for the offensive sluggishness. Said no one else in college football has to play road games.
Feels if given a 5 year contract extension and a home game only schedule he'll eventually crack through to the elusive seven win level.

ATL_eagle said...

It is getting very cold here. Have a feeling Addazio will pass even less in the second half.

Georgia Eagle said...

This game evoked love-hate emotions. If BC wins, Spaz is s lock for another year. Just great.

John said...

BC has about 50 players on the travel squad.

Georgia Eagle said...

I meant Daz, sorry

TGS said...

Other than abysmal coaching, horrible recruiting, second class facilities, and an apathetic administration, I think BC is close to turning the proverbial corner.

mod34b said...

Game 12. wR still can't catch a pass. wTF

Georgia Eagle said...

TGS, you are such a cynic. Stop telling the truth and tow the party line.

TGS said...

Georgia, I will do my best. Here we go:

I think with just a few minor tweaks, BC could play for the national championship next year. And Daz will be coach of the year.
Next, liberals like Mod will discover critical reasoning and logic, every day will be sunny, the budget will be balanced, and there will be peace in the Middle East.

Georgia Eagle said...

Mod voted for Trump. But I digress. Wake Forest just took the lead and normalcy has been restored.

TGS said...

4th and 1 delay of game penalty.
Can't make it up.

eagleboston said...

How in game 12 do you have a critical 4th and 1 and you get called for a delay of game? This is the dumbest quarterback I have ever seen at BC.

Georgia Eagle said...

My God this team is bad.

eagleboston said...

By the way, this is a sports blog, please keep the politics off of this. There are hundreds of other sites where you can rant.

rgmarine said...

can't the coaching staff see the delay coming and call a timeout? dumb qb and staff

Christopher Walsh said...

Towles is so bad

nceaglefan said...

The last 15 minutes of the Daz era, come on Wake.

ObserverCollege said...

Your heart has to go out to Coach Addazio. A string of stupid player mistakes culminated with the delay of game. Good on Coach to openly chastise Towles, after priming the announcers in pregame meetings so they would know the mistakes are the players' faults.

Georgia Eagle said...

Screw you,eagleboston. This team is so bad politics is far more entertaining. Besides, the liberals on ESPN make political comments all the time.
TGS, sick-em !

TGS said...

Eagleboston, if u don't like reading political commentary there are hundreds of other sites where you can post/bore people to tears.
Screw!!!

Henry K said...

I think this dazzaster is returning regardless, this is truly embarrassing football

ObserverCollege said...

BTW, BoT knows Coach has minimum 8 game plan wins this season (including today). That's 33% more than the six required.

TGS said...

Ever notice when someone disagrees with a lib like Eagleboston (what an original moniker, stay up all night thinking of that one), they are immediately accused of "ranting".
Go help Hillary with her pathetic recount you wuss.

ObserverCollege said...

Way too much talk about Callinan's perfect timing on the Rouse run. That was a brilliant play call first and foremost.

TGS said...

Georgia, as my Sergeant at Arms, I will instruct you to remove Eagleboston from the premises should he cross us again.

eagleboston said...

Classic Addazio. Blow a timeout in a close game so your offense has little chance to mount a late game drive. The guy is a complete clown. He absolute has no clue how to manage a game.

Christopher Walsh said...

BC should just take a knee on 1st down, it's the same thing as running it up the middle on 1st down, which it seems like they do anyways.

rgmarine said...

went crazy with that continuing stupid first down run but have to give them credit for the nice touchdown.

ObserverCollege said...

That's better, announcers give full credit to Coach Addazio for thinking through a brilliant play call on 4th and 6, and then the TD. Great job coaching up Towles and especially Tommy Sweeney.

He's not Louie Addazio, but the coaches saw some Louie in Sweeney and groomed him throughout the season. The Spaziani recruits whined and cried, but Coach kept the faith and overcame their treasonous play. Push another bunch of them out and Coach could have a 10 game plan-win season next year! Things are looking really bright!!!

CLB said...

Now we just need to bend not break

ObserverCollege said...

STUPID Harold Landry for jumping offsides on that. #DUMB

Christopher Walsh said...

Landry is are only bright spot. Cut him some slack.

ObserverCollege said...

BTW after the Landry penalty the players own full blame if Wake takes the lead. Can't blame Coach Addazio for giving up a TD when Landry incurs a 5-yard penalty.

ObserverCollege said...

BC would be starting from their own 27 rather than their own 22 #ThanksLandry

ObserverCollege said...

Smart, smart timeout on Coach Addazio's part. 3rd and 10, up 3 with 4 minutes left--you gotta call TO there to make sure you pick up 3 yards and punt from the 25. Of course, should be punting from the 30 #ThanksLandry

eagleboston said...

Towles has zero game awareness. You absolutely cannot take a sack in that situation. I can envision Wake scoring and then BC having no time to respond due to blowing 2 timeouts.

Christopher Walsh said...

Why do way play to loss

ObserverCollege said...

Nice job Offensive Line. If not for Landry offsides BC could have run on third down, then punted into Wake territory #ThanksLandry

Chris said...

I just want to shake Towles and say, STEP UP IN THE POCKET!! STEP UP IN THE POCKET!!!!!!! Stop rolling out into the Defensive End!! STEP UP! Does it kill you to step up!!!!!

Max said...

Wake Forest will win and the curse of Daz will be broken

ObserverCollege said...

Would be nice if we could get a sack as Coach Addazio drew up against a 3-step drop, rather than giving up a first down #ThanksLandry

mod34b said...

A very Daz ending in progress

mod34b said...

Shock. He missed fg

mod34b said...

It ain't over yet

Max said...

I just want to slap Daz across the face and scream "snap the f out of it. 11 games and this clown still can't manage a game.

ObserverCollege said...

The only reason Wake had a chance on the FG was the 5 yards of field position Landry gave away on the offsides #ThanksLandry

ObserverCollege said...

I don't know what more you could want than punting with a three point lead with 1:09 left. If they lose it's fully on the players #ThanksLandry

Chris said...

1:09 to play in the 4th why isn't Jeff Smith playing in the wildcat in the entire series, instead of running 3 dive plays in a row???? Should've had Willis out there with Smith in the Wildcat. Addazio has no imagination!!!!

BaldEagle90 said...

Just got the BC Magazine. Big article on new museum. Too bad alumni connect via athletics. Donation level continues to drop from this eagle. Fire. Leahy.

BaldEagle90 said...

Thank you Landry.

eagleboston said...

Whew!

ObserverCollege said...

Nice stenographic work out of the color guy. Only 14 seniors, lot of young guys. Means the world to grow those young guys. #pregame priming

ObserverCollege said...

That's right! Three bowls in four years, despite dropped balls and confidence issues. Remarkable coaching job!!! And look at that hug with Landry! Perfect stagecraft! And Landry saying the players want no one but Coach Addazio! #ExtendCoachAddazioNOW

bceagle93 said...

Let's hope the new AD sees that barely becoming bowl eligible is not in the spirit of "Ever to Excel" and ends our misery.

TC for AD & HC in 2017

Max said...

Another year of Daz. JFC it is worse than 4 years of Clintonama. Shoot me now.

TGS said...

All true BC fans should be in mourning after this win. It literally could mean 2-3 more years of absolutely no hope at all.

rgmarine said...

glad to see the win but going to a bowl with six wins is just doesn't cut it. daz said after the game that he is proud of his bowl record.pretty sad

Chris said...

Fire Addazio next year and then hire Chip Kelly after the 49ers fire him.

ObserverCollege said...

If BB is really moving on, I don't see why you wouldn't install Coach Addazii as Coach/AD. You then bring Louie Addazio onto the football staff as heir apparent with the extra assistant slot you'd pick up.

Christopher Walsh said...

3 out of 4 years bowling. Hearing Landry after game seems the the players love Addazio.

Chris said...

Unfortunately it didn't translate on the field as they had the easiest schedule out of all power 5 conference schools and barely made a bowl. Going into the season I said anything less then 8-4 would be a disgrace.

Smitty said...

Leahy steps down in May...Bates is fired, Addazio gets one more year as new AD recruits new coach next fall. It's going to happen.

Knucklehead said...

TGS,
You tried to eat ham on Thanksgiving. Who kept you from doing that? Be specific.

STL_eagle said...

I read this board regularly and I think many of us have become too jaded. It was a good win and a step forward. If we can't at least acknowledge progress then perhaps we are not true fans.

That said, BC needs to be more competitive against the better teams in the ACC. Not sure what the missing ingredient is...coaching, players, recruiting or just plain luck but winning half of their ACC games and getting to an overall 7-5 record should be the minimum standard of success. At least they earned their way to a bowl at 6-6.

A new AD is clearly on the way in. Daz will have a short leash and might not even see next year but there is no doubt that the players fought through a touch season to improve on last year. Give them some credit.
