Football Outsiders has moved BC up to 33... I was like "whaa...", but I gues when you break down how the team has performed on both sides of the ball, it has been pretty solid. Situational play-calling, clock management, and special teams have diluted the results. I would link, but afraid of repercussions.

Georgia Eagle said...

If bc wins tonight I become a believer. Lose, and pray for 6-6 and a crap bowl.

JBQ said...

Who would have "thunk it" only two weeks ago? The eulogies were being prepared. Let's see if BC can grab destiny by the throat.

STL_eagle said...

Both teams have a lot at stake tonight. BC to confirm progress and FSU to avoid a disastrous season. Who wants it more? Who makes less mistakes? The answer to those two questions will likely determine the outcome of this game. I predict:

BC 27 FSU 23

ATL_eagle said...

Plenty of empty seats at kickoff.

Big Jack Krack said...

What does the attendance look like? Oh boy, empty at kickoff.

I'm going to sit back and hold my breath.

Only a few short weeks ago we had about a 5% chance to win this game.

Now we have a "good chance" if we can hold it together on defense and mix it up on offense.

I'm not going to be critical of coaching, hopefully - but just watch BC play tough with a chance to win against a high pedigree program - and hopefully show continued improvement.

Go BC - beat FSU.

ATL_eagle said...

That's terrible. Great throw by Brown.

Big Jack Krack said...

What could have been.

Mack Brown said it was a must score.

Big Jack Krack said...

Didn't know Landry was out.

ATL_eagle said...

Nice catch. Nice call.

Big Jack Krack said...

One reason why we were so frustrated with RRPP.

bceagle93 said...

Someone is deciding to fly. Love the play call on the Smith TD throw.

TGS said...

Two trick plays already. Wow!

Eagle66 said...

Go Eagles πŸ¦…

ATL_eagle said...

Now let's see the D answer.

Big Ern said...

Razzle DAZzle!

Eagle66 said...

O well

JBQ said...

After the td, I heard "For Boston". It wasn't too loud and off key but it still sounded good. They haven't been playing it too often. So, I guess that they are out of practice.

ATL_eagle said...

Lucky but I will take it.

Big Jack Krack said...

We need to find a way to put big pressure on the QB.

Wow - fumble recoveries help.

Eagle66 said...

Timely recovery. Let’s move it!πŸ¦…

JBQ said...

Flying High. Will Harris is johnny on the spot.

Eagle66 said...

Bad field position. Need to run it out !

Eagle66 said...

Dillon!

Eagle66 said...

Oh! Fingertips

ATL_eagle said...

two bad drops already.

Eagle66 said...

Good time for an option.

Big Jack Krack said...

The drops are really too bad.

I would have expected both of those to be caught - especially the last one.

Eagle66 said...

That’ll wory

Eagle66 said...

Mixing up well

Eagle66 said...

Still gets shaken

Eagle66 said...

Great punt & coverage.

ATL_eagle said...

BC should be winning by more than they are but that was a good first quarter.

Big Jack Krack said...

It shows we can play with these guys.

Let's hope some of our passes connect.

Open it up for #2.

The pass sets up the run and vice versa. but not the predictable RRPP.

ATL_eagle said...

Nice stop.

Eagle66 said...

Good stand

ATL_eagle said...

Now try to run it down their throats.

Eagle66 said...

Good catch. Too bad not on down 1 or 2

ATL_eagle said...

BC needs to go for it.

ATL_eagle said...

Great call and play by Brown.

Eagle66 said...

Rah!

Eagle66 said...

FSU getting a little chippy. Maybe some penalties coming.

Eagle66 said...

Sweeney!πŸ¦…

Edmonds 632 said...

God damn BC football is fun again

JBQ said...

"For Boston" the second time sounded lots better. It's the practice. Just think what it will sound like when they score again.

TGS said...

I really think three weeks ago the Daz punts there on 4th and 2. Jarmond must have given him an ultimatum, how else to explain the change in philosophy?

ATL_eagle said...

Great drive.

Big Jack Krack said...

We are not going to settle for this. Keep it up, guys. Keep the pressure up!!!!

Big Jack Krack said...

Got to get to the QB somehow.

Big Jack Krack said...

OK D - keep it together. Be disciplined.

Eagle66 said...

Omg! πŸ¦…

ATL_eagle said...

That was great. Schwab read that the whole way.

Big Jack Krack said...

YES!!!!!!!

canttakeit said...

When it comes together it's going to be beautiful

JBQ said...

As Mac Brown has said a number of times, BC is "on fire". I hope that they remember that there are two halves. The Atlanta Falcons didn't.

Eagle66 said...

Wow!πŸ¦…

Big Jack Krack said...

I hope our fans at the game don't leave at halftime.

ATL_eagle said...

We can't let them get back into this game. FSU is checked out. Give them nothing now.

Eagle66 said...

TD!

ATL_eagle said...

That was the same play as last week only Brown kept it.

Big Jack Krack said...

We were at the USC game in 2014 (back in my Flynn Fund 50 yard line seats days).

This is magic so far.

Go BC - beat FSU.

I'll renew my Flynn Fund Seats from 1000 miles away. :-)

bceagle93 said...

Props to Daz and Loeffler. This has been a near flawless half of offense — play calls and execution.

I can’t believe I am thinking we could very possibly put 40 up again.

Eagle66 said...

Hold

Eagle66 said...

4th down

rgmarine said...

this is getting scary----i'm dumbfounded at the ease of BC's scoring capability.

JBQ said...

FSU is imploding. BC needs to keep up the pressure. A penalty on the kickoff moves them further back.----It is interesting to note the blood lines of A.J. Dillon. His grandfather is Tom Gatewood who was a wide receiver for Ara Parseghian.

Big Jack Krack said...

Boston College - DO NOT LEAVE AT HALFTIME!!!!!

Big Jack Krack said...

Grandfather Gatewood deserves our thanks for his guidance.

Eagle66 said...

Think these commentators going for FSU?

bceagle93 said...

Last time we scored 40 in 3 consecutive games? 1993. Army, Tulane, Va Tech. We scored 33 the following wk against Pitt and then you know what happened in ND. 41-39.

Eagle66 said...

These FSU players are stupid.

Rathskeller Yeller said...

There is a stunned realization that we are dominating FSU after 3rd TD here in Section. R

Big Jack Krack said...

That's an interception. FSU 1st down at the 3 or 4.

Big Jack Krack said...

Wow - confirmed.

Edmonds 632 said...

How is that not a pick?

Edmonds 632 said...

Aghhhh pick that Harris

Eagle66 said...

Hold that line

Big Jack Krack said...

Yes - and pressure the QB somehow.

Eagle66 said...

Wow

Big Jack Krack said...

Big FSU catch.

Eagle66 said...

FG?

Edmonds 632 said...

Mack Brown is the worst.

Eagle66 said...

There goes the shut out.

Big Jack Krack said...

Clean play and I hope the QB is okay.

Eagle66 said...

Hope #1 is ok

Eagle66 said...

Walker is amazing!

Big Jack Krack said...

Now he can take a knee.

dtrain1234 said...

Addazio is coming back next year...this is the he best stretch of BC football in 10 years...enough negative chatter.

Rathskeller Yeller said...

Oline is playing with agresssion And assignment football I have not seen since The beginning of Addazio’s tenure. I literally sat in the seat in the first half of this year and feel like I am watching a different OC and different line.

ATL_eagle said...

That was a good half.

JBQ said...

Two halves guys. A. Brown is showing some leadership skill now. It is his team. It looks like the FSU qb has a separated shoulder.

Big Jack Krack said...

I had season tickets for about 42 years (will renew again) before they drove me out with s$It teams on the schedule and RRPP.

But we always stayed until the end, no matter.

If our fans at the game don't come back after halftime, I am really going to be mad.

This is a special turnaround for our team, and I hope we can sustain the action in the 2nd half.

A wild stadium like at the USC game in 2014 will go a long way to helping our players (and coaches) win this game.

Big Jack Krack said...

If our team faces adversity in the second half, how will they respond?

This is the key for the team in week 9.

Go BC - get over any hurdles.

Eagle66 said...

Can’t tell if all fans are back; but if team continues tough in 2half - great for recruiting.

ATL_eagle said...

Keep giving it to Dillon.

Eagle66 said...

O my

Eagle66 said...

6 screwed that up

ATL_eagle said...

Brown has to be careful.

Eagle66 said...

BC ball! πŸ¦…

Big Jack Krack said...

Wow - can't expect FSU to make those mistakes.

ATL_eagle said...

Love Dillon moving the pile.

Eagle66 said...

One more now for #2

Eagle66 said...

#2 TD Yea. What I line blocking!🏈

Big Jack Krack said...

Are you kidding me?

Edmonds 632 said...

LETS GO 28-3

bceagle93 said...

AJD2 for Heisman

Eagle66 said...

On the wY to 49 again? Who woulda thunk it?!

Eagle66 said...

40

Big Jack Krack said...

Don't let up, BC.

These teams love to roll it up on us!!!

Stuff em, and score again.

AMDG said...

28-3 on the 3rd Quarter. Better not count our chickens yet.

CT said...

Petal to the metal.

CT said...

Oops. Pedal. Autoshit.

JBQ said...

The fat lady hasn't sung yet. Keep the pedal to the metal.

Big Jack Krack said...

Good Fair Catch.

Agree with CT and all - pedal to the metal.

Edmonds 632 said...

Keep em with a heavy dose of Dillon. More points.

Edmonds 632 said...

Hilliman keeps making me nervous.

Big Jack Krack said...

Brown is hitting these guys.

If we catch more balls, it would be unbelievable.

Edmonds 632 said...

Hilliman not getting to that ball on 3rd down just now. Ugh.

Eagle66 said...

BC punt? Last time?

Big Jack Krack said...

The clock is really slow this period. Don't turtle up, BC.

Wow, #32 missed two and that was a first down.

dtrain1234 said...

What a strong October for BC football. A lot of the fans have left but that's expected in a lopsided game late on a Friday night. We are going to a bowl game again and we have more ACC wins then we've had for a long time. Very happy for the players and coaching staff.

Eagle66 said...

Luck of the Irish!

ATL_eagle said...

This game is a trainwreck for FSU.

BCEagles2010 said...

Enjoying the game but... what’s up with the band?

Eagle66 said...

Yes. And if ND roughs up NCState, we will have a good shot at wing out! (Am I nuts?)

Eagle66 said...

Whatcha mean?

Georgia Eagle said...

Daz has gone conservative. Shit!

Thomas said...

Does anyone else feel like the BC band playing the same tune between every. single. play. is making this game unwatchable(at least with volume)? I’m getting closer and closer to muting.

And yes I realize if that’s the worst thing I have to complain about we’re obviosuly playing pretty well.

Big Jack Krack said...

Hockey game tonight as well. Plus I heard it's the smallest BC Band in history.

Eagle66 said...

Hold em

Big Jack Krack said...

Georgia Eagle - hope you're wrong.

Thomas said...

Makes sense. Less in this case should equal more.

Georgia Eagle said...

He's back to the old two runs up the middle followed by a short pass

Eagle66 said...

Magnificent take down Zack!

Big Jack Krack said...

Let's go for 35. No kidding!!!~

BCEagles2010 said...

Sounds like a Bon Jovi tribute band half the time instead of our beloved screaming eagles

Edmonds 632 said...

More points please

Eagle66 said...

Brown hurt!

Eagle66 said...

We want 40 Jack!

ATL_eagle said...

I don't think the turnaround is all about Brown. But I would hate to see him out.

Eagle66 said...

Run it in

Edmonds 632 said...

4Th and goal. Go for it. End them.

Big Jack Krack said...

I didn't like those 3 formations for hand offs up the middle.

Not being super critical.

Eagle66 said...

Wade for MVP!

Big Jack Krack said...

Wow that was close - hopefully the KO punch.

Edmonds 632 said...

35-3 with 15 minutes to go. What is going on.

Deacon Drake said...

I feel like Flounder watching the Faber Parade... Oh boy! This is great!

Eagle66 said...

Court QuarterπŸ’ͺ🏻

BCNavy89 said...

Just f...ing pinch me cause this is unreal

Eagle66 said...

Fourth Quarter πŸ’ͺ🏻

Eagle66 said...

Need another TD to ensure 49 & to score in each quarter!πŸ¦…

Eagle66 said...

I mean 40. Typos

Big Jack Krack said...

This possession will be interesting.

Is Brown out for the night?

Probably a good idea with a bye week.

But I'd love to see us score another one.

Pay back for last year and other years.

bceagle93 said...

This has not even been close in any aspect of the game: O, D or special teams. And no Landry. Unreal.

Deacon Drake said...

Get Dillon out... save some for next week.

Big Jack Krack said...

Run clock, run.

Let's get this over with.

I don't want to see a couple of FSU TDs in garbage time.

Pedal to the metal.

Thomas said...

Kind of a long shot but if NC state beats ND and then Clemson they could come in as a top 5 team in a trap game... exciting possibility

Jazzyg said...

Defense has played amazing without its most talented player. Coaching to win makes a difference. What made the staff and daz change their approach? Jarmond? Whatever it is it worked. The aggressiveness really is paying off and we been talking about playing this style for years. Happy for the kids. Great streak we are on. Bc football is fun.

Eagle66 said...

Put in Hilliman or that other rb.
Save them for NCState. Bye coming.

Tim said...

I sat under a speaker at Alumni for the vtech game. It’s not actually the band. They pipe in some crappy music that sounds like a cross between a marching band and a nintendo soundtrack.

Eagle66 said...

Nice sack 20

Edmonds 632 said...

FSU have raised the white flag

Tim said...

I sat under a speaker at the vtech game. It’s not actually the band. They pipe in some crappy music that sounds like a cross between a marching band and a Nintendo soundtrack.

Georgia Eagle said...

I am stunned at this teams turn around. Can we get another shot at Clemson and Notre Dame?

Eagle66 said...

No Quarter for them. Payback for many years. πŸ¦…

Eagle66 said...

Daz said it would be beautiful!

Big Jack Krack said...

Many fan bases are leaving games early.

Welles' parents being interviewed.

Really touching.

Big Jack Krack said...

And what I meant to convey is the contrast from 2014 USC with 40,000 plus staying until the end and rushing the field.

And tonight, with this unbelievable turnaround, already gone to the bars, the library, wherever.

Big Jack Krack said...

I just wish they stayed to salute this team tonight - and Welles Crowther's parents!!!

Eagle66 said...

Amen.

dixieagle said...

Agreed. Don't understand it at all.

Thomas said...

Gotta say these announcers have been gushing about anything and everything BC all night. Proud day to be an alum.

working rich said...

Kudos.
Team and coach deserve a pat on the back
Nice job

Big Jack Krack said...

OK - those remaining are showing their spirit.

Go BC.

Eagle66 said...

Book it! & they rushed the field. πŸ¦…πŸ¦…πŸ¦…

Edmonds 632 said...

Biggest damn smile on my face right now. These kids have earned it.

Big Jack Krack said...

Here's the deal.

Bye week - time to heal up.

Then we get NC State coming off Notre Dame and Clemson and then flying to little Boston College.

Coaches - let's put some more frosting in the cake. Get ready for the Wolf Pack and knock them off next!!!

No kidding.

Go BC - enjoy your dinner (Sunday?) and get ready to stick it to NC State.

Pedal to the metal!!! :-)

Knucklehead said...

Weakest college football crowd in America. Cannot wait until the douchebags start showing up for NC State and UCONN.

We just got the last three years of missed bounces tonight.

Go Eagles.

NC State is fucked.

Tim said...

Brown was 6/20 for 54 yards. Not good.

John said...

Tim, I think our receivers did Brown some disservice tonight.

Although he made up for it, #89 didn't bring 2 catchable balls in, including a great potential TD pass. #18 dropped one while wide open and #32 missed two.

I think there were some others also.

So it could easily have been 10 for 20 for 100 yards and 2 TDs, no INT.

John said...

Brown played like a veteran and a winner tonight.

Go BC.

dtrain1234 said...

The crowd seemed weak for some reason...Friday night, good weather...I thought there would be more energy

Lenny Sienko said...

As a Don Bosco Prep alum, I was flipping back and forth in the first quarter of the Boston College game to check on the Bosco/Bergen Catholic game, which was live on national TV.

The Bergen quarterback, Langan, engineered a last minute comeback to win the game. It was mentioned several times that he was a verbal commit to Boston College for next year. Langan was more of the tall, drop back, pocket passer type. Accurate, with a strong arm. Definite leadership. Thought he was going to go crowd surfing after the go-ahead TD.

I am very pleased for the kids to see BC win over FSU. Sorry, but I still haven't changed my assessment of DAZ.

Men's Hockey lost 3rd in a row. 2-1 to Providence.

Very busy Friday evening....



John said...

I agree, dtrain. Hopefully, the energy will continue to grow.

We've been down for a long time, but the turnaround should happen faster.

Can you imagine if NC State beats either ND or Clemson - or both, what November 11th will mean? Wow.

Go BC.

CLB said...

Daz please take the team to guesStimate. Sparse crowd; my voice is still hoarse; beer lines were long. Go BC

CLB said...

STOCK YARD.... autocorrect
