A Boston College sports blog capturing the highs and lows of being a BC fan living 1,000 miles from Chestnut Hill.
Good interview with Jarmond in the Globe online today.
You know why not us. Three letters: D A Z
Lol. Love it, Unknown.
3 minutes until game time and I don't think they've mentioned BC once. And then this happened. "We saw a big upset last night with Syracuse taking down Clemson, will we see another one today? We just might! Georgia Tech is taking on Miami at 3:30, could be a chance for an upset. Sooo now let's head out to Louisville who is taking on.....The Boston Golden Eagles".
Anyone catch that cheerleader upskirt shot after the extra point? Highlight of the game! #lonely
we all know that in all probability louisville will crush BC and hopefully this will lead to the eventual release of addazio. Because i have accepted the fact that BC is not up to beating most teams they play i watch as an alum and hope for the best. these things go in cycles and maybe Jarmond will begin the winning cycle
Pass with success on first play of the game? Then it's time for a -4 yard run, after which you obviously run on 2nd and 14, followed by incomplete. Asinine. Play to keep it within forty Addazio! Do us proud!
Not a sore sport, and Louisville would score anyway - but Calling that a TD is complete BS.I don't care what the rule is, the TE was clearly out of bounds, and touched the pylon from the IB side - and his hand may have hit the white chalk first.Anyway, the rule should be that half your body with the ball must reach INTO the end zone.
I'm just perplexed. They have great success and huge yardage on a couple pass plays, then they go to Hilliman (not Dillon) for negative yards. Addazio's excuse is that Dillon is not used to running from a shotgun formation. Well, then give him some carries to get experience! How hard is that? Addazio is just flat out in over his head.
Oh well - here we go.
GET RID OF OUR GARBAGE. HE IS TOTALLY BEFOULING 'THE HEIGHTS."HE should be paying BC for GROSS INCOMPETENCE.
We're not good
Amazing what a team can do playing college football - playing to score. Playing to win.Where has 18 been for 3 years? Ask Addazio. Good job by the entire team on that drive.
Oh well - we tried. But I think AB could have run for the first down.It's okay for now - spread the field.Go BC.
Let's see some offense here, Loeffler.
Unreal - but why did I think it would be any different, Loeffler.
Guess I'll stop talking to myself.BC, we are pretty low when there are no in game comments.There's no one here. 🙂
Come on Jeff Smith.
John, let's face it - there's just no hope now. I can't imagine anyone thinking we'll make a comeback here. We're likely headed for our second 3-9 season in 3 years. The 7-6 season in between was a mirage with cupcakes padding the record and suffering 3 of our 10 worst defeats in just one season. Year 5 in the Daz era and nothing but regression. Hope begins with Daz getting canned within 24 hours of our last game. Or sooner.
It would be great to get 7 here.
This has been a man's drive, said the commentator.AB scramble was great and opened it up for Dillon.
And Walker punt return.
Great job o But who called that timeout and whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy
Good half team is competitive and certainly improving. Will we win? It's possible!
Alright. Who are these guys and what have they dine with the BC football team?
Leaving points off the board is a killer. I did not like that 2nd down call. It put them at 3rd and long, resulting in the field goal attempt.
FF kicker 1 of his last 6, according to the announcer.It really hurts that this has been such a pitiful problem under Addazio.Wake up, Coach.
Wade in - AB hurt and gone to locker room.
WTF - go BC.
We have tight ends on scholarship? Who knew?
We are seeing the best BC football in years. Will it continue?
QB controversy!Just kidding. I think.
is this BC-----keep wade in while he's hot-----my god they look like a real team
That drive was an Addazio wet dream3-5 yard dives with play action passes to the tight ends
That was a great drive! Keep in mind, it was all driven by the gutsy call to go for it on 4th and 1 at the 48 AND to call a passing play.
Linebacker #28 look like a real deal add him to the list of young ballers we got. Dillon is a hammer. Where has this team been?
Sometimes it’s not the tools but the person using them
Ok - tighten up the D.Been posting as John from my phone until now.
Ok - capitalize!!!!!!
What a pleasure to see BC playing good football.
Wow - punch this in, BC - don't care how.That pass to Hilliman is effective because Wade is a lefty.GO BC - this is what we have been hoping for - for the oaches to give them a game plan to win.Play to win the game, Addazio!!!!Your players deserve it.
This is almost exciting. Wade sees the field and defense better. Dillon explodes into the crease like he's trying to win a Woody! Defense looks great since they aren't on the field 75% of the time.
FB #47 leading the runner Dillon with a nice block - a newer wrinkle today?Not up the middle - I love it!!!Go BC.You players deserve this.Coaches - keep playing to win. Keep playing to win! Keep playing to win!!!
Daz saving his job for another year!
#47 Colton Cardinal, Franklin, MA - and Dillon ran into the endzone from the 11 yard line untouched!!!
Yiadom fell down. Ugghhh
Don't lose confidence, BC.Keep dominating their Defense.You can do it.
In Boston seeing on broadcast ton of mellow mushroom pizza ads. Is that a southern thang?? Never heard of it
We finally get an offense and now we don't have a D. If we ever get the 2 units clicking at the same time, BC will be an ACC contender.
The most critical drive of the game is right here.
Oh my 75 yard TD. 10 second drive
Dillon took the "drive" out of the equation... unless you count what he did to #22.
Are you sh$tting me?
Wow. That was Andre Williams esque.
Holy @#$% This has been one crazy weekend in college football and the late afternoon games haven't even started! Finish 'em off, guys!
D needs energy boost
Omggggggggggggg that was crazy!!!!!!!! Monster run and I didn't think he had those wheels.
#8 Harris is hurting. Hope it's not too serious.
Great contain on that pocket.
Dillon is one of the fastest on our team and to be that big and strong - amazing!!!
If I'm Petrino I just run Jackson.
ACC officials, YOU HAVE to throw a flag on the BC DB at the BC 10 when Louisville is down 14 in the 4th quarter.
Jackson is unreal.Let's keep scoring and it won't matter.
Maybe... put a guy on Jackson? It's not like you are blitzing...
OC is great. :-)
In all seriousness - this is where the offense has to really "man-up". As great as they have played, we have to keep it up.Go BC - you can do this!!!
I don't think 42 points is gonna be enough.
If a win today saves the coach’s job it’s a case of winning the battle and losing the war. Did you notice the unbelievable poor clock management at the end of the half calling two timeouts with about a minute left? Instead of scoring and leaving Louisville with 10 seconds he left them with 51. It got lost because Louisville didn’t score but we have seen these blunders consistently for five years. I hope they win for the kids sake but it will be a shame if one win brings the coach back. And he might yet snatch defeat from the jaws of victory in this game
How he misssssss that throw??????
This Dillon reminds me so much of Corey Dillon who played in the NFL including with the apatriots. A real stud and future pro. Wade has done well today but the other kid is your best bet
That would have been a TD.That's two wide opens we have missed today.Bad time for Wade to show his inacurracy.
Just like you can't allow Louisville to beat BC, there's no way Syracuse should have ended up anywhere near Clemson on the scoreboard. If I'm on the ACC Board of Directors, I'm ash-canning John Swofford as Commissioner. You cannot, CANNOT, allow Clemson to lose on the road at Syracuse. You just can't let that happen.Your game officials MUST step in and fix the game. Start calling holding on Syracuse OL's (easy to do). Take any opportunity to call pass interference on the 'Cuse DBs. Do whatever you need to do to make sure your undefeated 2nd-ranked national championship candidate survives its schedule.Would the SEC let this happen to 'Bama? Would the Pac-10 allow this to happen to Oregon in its prime?No and no.
OK BC - somebody make a play.
I would put the other QB back in now
Wow. Ok, BC. Now we can go on the final 5 minute drive and win the game.Don't forget the missed FG and two wide open TD passes that were overthrown.Let's go, BC - you can do this.Stuff em now - right now!!!!
The decision not to rush Jackson is wearing this secondary out.
Slow down. Take time off the clock on this drive. Use your head
Dillon. Wow. He might save Addazio's job.
You've done more than enough, Coach Addazio, to keep your job. You have competed and won the majority of the minutes today. Now it's time to think of the ACC's greater good.Dillon doesn't belong anywhere on the field. Sit Dillon down for some trumped-up disciplinary reason. If you handle it right, you can use our implicit racism to get people to think he's just another beast who can't behave himself. Then you'll have people contacting Jarmond and the Board of Directors to tell them that a coach who thinks toward the long-term, who loves the University and the kids so much that he'll give "tough love", is a coach BC wants and needs on the sideline to build something beautiful.With this game today, 3-9 should be more than enough to save your job.
There you go, Field Judge. Let the Louisville guy climb all over the receiver's back on third down before the ball arrives. Well-done!!!
I think we know how this will end.
Should we have gone for the first down? I thought so.
Addazio is scaring me to death.
I hate Addazio playing for just the field goal here. Does he trust CL?
dillon coming out party is a smash success.
Lichtenberg can redeem himself.
FIRE THE GAME OFFICIALS. How do you allow BC a chance to win? You cannot, CANNOT, fail to blow the whistle there. You think Lamar's got this, and start spectating, and then you can't plausibly blow a whistle to save Louisville.And THEN you give BC the ball after the scrum??? And replay doesn't overturn!!????What is wrong with you people!!!??? Swofford, where are you!!??? David Stern would never allow this to stand!!!!?????
I don't know why Addazio didn't run 18 more second off the clock before calling his timeout.
RUN THE BALL!
"Not sure why they would run that."
I can't watch...
Seriously? Not centering the kick after Lichtenberg missed one from the left hash?
Does CL like it on the left hash?
I'm thrilled for CL and BC.
well done all around!
Daz saves his job for another year. Yay!
Addazio did well today - I have to give it to him and his staff.Go BC.
Wow. That was awesome. Great playing BC Eagles. Players and coaches.
The argument is over. Sigh!
Did you see poor Bobby Petrino having to walk across the field with that steak tartare face of his? He's done so much for the football community. Built an amazing program at Arkansas. Laid the foundation and built the house that took Atlanta to within a minute of winning the Super Bowl--and would have won it if he didn't feel the call to come to Louisville.He's been through so much. First he loses the love of his life, Jessica, after the fake news media assassinates his character in the wake of a silly motorcycle accident. Now this.
Wow! I prayed to my son who passed away last month to help BC win right before the fumble. Probably just a conincidnece but I’m really happy right now!!
The guys haven't quit. The program needed that. I think. How about letting Dillon play RB? Looks like UM screwed the pooch on that one. What a monster. That 75 yd run is going viral after tossing that DB.
Thank you eagleboston.I can't wait to read the box score statistics for this game.We're all talking about Dillon, of course - but Hilliman played well and many others.The Offensive line played quite well. This is nice, BC.Way to go.The game plan to contain Jackson kind of fizzled - but the guy is very, very good!!!As I said, as long as we kept scoring, who cared about his statistics? :-)
Big Jack, reminds me of the Flutie-Kosar game in ‘84. I’m going to have to replay this one.
And how about that Louisville late fumble, recovered by BC.That stuff usually would happen to us, not them.Some things went our way today, that offset the things that didn't.Go BC. We won the game "fair and square".
@ObserverCollege - Comparing the loss of someone's wife to a football game ? And you'd rather see a team get help from the refs than see real competition ? You are a clown.
Big win for the program. But I don't think this saves Daz's job, he needs to get at least a couple more ACC wins, plus UConn. 6 wins probably gets him another year. Though wouldn't be surprised to see Jurmond move on even with 6 wins. Timing is good, with a young stud at RB and QB's playing better than last year.
Jessica was Petrino's 27 year old mistress (who he had on the Arkansas payroll [probably a no show job too]for $75K) and she wasn't killed. Just had to go Bye bye after that fiasco.OC is 100% satire.
Is that satire?
Yes - look up Bobby Petrino motorcycle accident - the one that got him fired from Arkansas.Jessica was his mistress, who thought she'd get a real job. :-)He 51 at the time; she 25.
Good job by the players. Win and lose it is mostly on them. Not much to complain about Daz. It is all about results. This was good but they still need 3 or 4 more wins to save Daz's job. I don't think it will happen but if it does then great. I still see 5-7 as the end point but now there is a little more hope.
Great win...all wins should be celebrated. This is ridiculous that some are upset that this win saves Addazios job. If you blame him for everything bad that happens, you also have to give him credit for this win. Best road win in many years. Be happy for a few days
Good job BC players.Also: For people who still don’t know: ObserverCollege is a joke account. Has been for years.
That rule should be changed
