A Boston College sports blog capturing the highs and lows of being a BC fan living 1,000 miles from Chestnut Hill.
Looks like perfect football weather.
I posted this on another thread. I just flew up from Atlanta and talked fifteen relatives and their friends into coming with me and pulling for BC. We’re at Maryanne’s. Where are the BC fans?
Hope springs eternal within the human breast. As that noted philosopher Joaquin Andujahr of the baseball Cardinals once remarked, "ya never know".
My son and his fiancée work for the Iowa State football team. They beat OU on the road with a 3rd string quarterback, despite being 31 point underdogs. Thus, BC has a shot tonight, no matter the offs. The difference is I really believe Matt Campbell is the best young coach in America while Addazio......well.
No matter the odds. I hate Apple spell check
Here we go. Best part of game day is waiting with bated breath for dickhead, a.k.a. knuckleheads, latest missive. Will it be his old standby that "Jarman won't fire Daz without Leahy's permission?" Such an original comment. Thanks for letting us know that the AD will need the president's permission before filing the coach. Cutting edge stuff dickhead. Maybe it will be his old stand by, it's the players fault, not Daz.Or will it be that another player on BC has revolutionized the sport of football the way he claims the BC punter has. Or will he state leaving your star running back in the game up 20 with a minute left is a great idea, only to later say BC will win if Dillon plays, but lose by 25 without him.Truly the dumbest person ever to post on this board. Angry and dumb is a sorrowful combo Khead.
I think our "up the middle" approach will prevent us from scoring many points.We're going to do it until teams respect us, though. We are BC, after all.
Same old bullshit. Our receivers can't catch, our kicker can't make an easy field goal. Why do II keep torturing myself??
Sweeney should have caught that TD pass. But then we run for a couple and get an incompletion on a unimaginative pass route that hasn't worked all year.Way to blow a turnover.We have missed the last 3 FGs I have watched.The commentator said you can't blame the crowd, because they are quiet.Unreal.
CL seems to have lost his mojo on the field goals. And of course that led right to a quick score.
That's it. I've had it. Turning the channel to watch michagen. Boycotting bc and the NFL ( I'm a veteran).
Wish we could catch a ball.
stupid pass call.
That was a better drive. 7 would have been nice, but I am glad they answered.
STD, you getting your weekly alotment of online time from the prison library? It is terrible to have to address you but your complete lack of football knowledge , lack of contribution here and considerable time trying match my contributions are noted. Again. Douchebag.It is great the way you address the board like people here are your friends. Loser.
We need to be careful here, Loeffler. How about 32 up the middle? They won't be expecting that.
Once again we need points.
One thing I am happy with is we have passed more downfield.
That little dump off is Addazio giving up on a possession again. Might as well punt on 3rd down.
Play for field position. Good strategy.
Nice blocking on that punt.
ATL, your incessant optimism is really getting annoying.
watching Michigan and Don Brown's Defense, during TOs.Boy do we miss him.
Unfortunately, he was down.
More terrible tackling.
He stepped out.
That QB is overrated. That TD pass earlier was 1:1million. He just got wrecked.Crowd is filling in nicely.
We should be winning this game. But we are horribly coached on O. Both lines are winning their respective battles.
I think Sweeney leads the team in false starts.
Nice 3rd down play call
Addazio is playing not to lose again. That's worked so well.
Michagen-Michagen state very exciting. Real college football with first class coaches and players.
Where are the other TE's Garrison and Isiea(spelling).
At this point I would sit #89 down and tell him he's on the bench until he can catch a pass.False starts and dropped passes.Let's go coach - put someone in who can catch the ball. We have several tight ends who can do that. Right now, it's not #89, as he has proven over and over again.
VT is running the old Dana Bible slant in offense tonight.
Jackson is messed up. Allen is going to break him.
Does anyone think we can overcome a 14 point deficit?
Brown needs to answer with a TD. He is going to have make some first downs running on his own to make it happen.
Who will join me ? Daz must go. Daz must go. Daz must go ! ATL????
If they show some backbone and get a TD on this drive, maybe.
This shouldn’t be on television
There you go. Brown running.
That call after the catch was pathetic.
This is a moment for decision.
Play calling. Fuck. Dillion?
Good. Brown is pissed. Someone needs to tell the coaches and players to get their heads out of their asses. Maybe Brown will do it.
That play was a mess. Call a timeout and make sure everyone understands what the play is? Sweeney didn't even know where to line up.
I think our guys would be a lot better with a different coaching staff, for sure.You call a 4th down pass to a guy who can't catch it, even if it was on the money.Where do they get these guys?Okay if VT scores here, we're cooked.
Bletzer got lucky there. Why is he covering there anyway?
Okay - let's get some pass catchers in there. Idrizi, Burt, Marten. I think I saw Borgersen earlier.Keep #9 White more meaningful routes.Haven't seen Garrison I don't think. Glines?Someone to catch a ball - please.
Guys, guys, guys. Admit it. This team and it's coaching staff are an embarrassment. Where the hell is the outrage????
It should be 17-9. With us driving here for more. The kicker is a douche and not sure why he didn't take the three there.
Brown has shown he can run and is an iffy passer. We of course don't design a game plan to his strengths.
This game plan is a stinker. This defense is over matched.But Addazio will make adjustments at halftime and rally the team before an empty house.At this point we're only asking for the coaches to design an offense that gives us a chance.That's all we're asking.Put in the players who can get the job done.
I really wish BC would replace the tag line in its ad from "A Jesuit, Catlolic University" to "Ever To Excel". No one benefitted more than me from BC's Jesuit background, but Inworry that when prospective students see that line, they think of BC as the Catholic version of BYU, where the Church of LDS regulates every aspect of life.
Written on my phone. I apologize for the spelling errors. No, I didn't have a stroke.
I'm just so frustrated and discouraged with our program under the last 2 coaches.Let's go BC - show us something in the 2nd half.
I wonder how many Jesuits are actually teaching at BC these days?My uncle was a Jesuit and I too have high regards. But I like the Ever to Excel idea, Goberry.And I would like us to live it in athletics as well as academics.
ESPn computer predicts we lose the rest of our ACC games. our best chance is vs Syracuse were the ESPN computer gives BC a 27% chance of winning.. oh boywe are favored to beat UConn.... heavily favored... 3-9 looks like
I hope someone fell there. If not, that was a total breakdown.
As my wife says - Surely they're not going to keep Addazio for another year. The program is demolished.
Michigan doesn't look much better than BC tonight.
I would say that if we don't score on our first drive of the half, the remaining fans will file out.What do you think of that, Mr. Jarmond?We have too many holes on the defense, and we can't score.What is our average in ACC games this year? 7 or 8 points per game. Pitiful.Firable.
Phones are legit. Can watch LSU while tailgating and Michigan get their asses handed to them at home. Not sure why Dillion is coming off the field.
They need to roll him out on every throw going forward. Then he can run or throw. Not sure what the hell Loeffler thinks he is doing.
Mark my words. Petrula will be all ACC.
Down 20 to 3, Addazio/Loeffler call two belly series runs to start our second half.You can't make this shit up.Petrula is trying to block a 340 pounder - that hold/tackle was too bad.
Why is BC still on national TV? I'm so embarrassed to be associated with this disaster.
All the student section just deserted. 800 left in the 3rd. Terrible.
Yeah he is doing a good job holding that position down though. He is what I expect our line to be. The kid from Dallas is under the radar and is going to be very good too. Hope he is ready to play as a freshman.
Ok - seriously. If we go 3 and out, I think we should just forfeit the rest of the game.This coaching staff has no heart; no imagination; no courage and they're killing the enthusiasm of their own players.And the fans have voted with their feet. It's embarrassing, but it is what it is, as they say.
Yeah the only people in my section are VT.
The commentators are actually being critical of Addazio.
I like Petrula - what a challenge for a young freshman.
Hope the defense can play tough through the 4 th.
I would run travis levy here. See what we have with him.
Loeffler needs to be fired tonight.What a sorry individual he is as an offensive coordinator.Thanks for coming, Scot. Now please just go.
God the offense is not helping the defense. Three plays in 60 seconds. Foolish, at this point.
Wonder is Loeffler bet the over.
At least we aren't Michigan they lie cheat steal and still get their asses kicked with a clown coach. They have 100k people standing there hell of high water.
Addazio would kick a FG on the 1.
Good. Fuck them.
This is painful.That pass play was hilarious.
Knoll knew it was wrong and kicked it anyway. Dazzler wasn't paying attention or he would have called TO. Presumably.
The defense is brass. The coaches are doing everything they can to ruin them.
This could be an all time low for BC offense. At least since WF beat us 3 to 0 because of Addazio.But have we gained 10 yards all total in the second half yet?Statistically, this has to rank as one of the worst of all time.Worst of all TIME.
I hate VT. I hope Jackson tears his ACL on the new turf.
Fuente looking to run it up
Landry down. Like I said. The coaches are doing everything they can to ruin the defense.
Absolute incompetence in year 5 of this train wreck. 2.5 million a year for this ineptitude.Shame on the Board of Trustees. We are a punch line.
what is with the asshole Knucklehead hoping another player gets hurt... get the fuck out of here asshole
Let's try something other than the dive.
Well, Addazio has an excuse. Field position.We couldn't do anything with our freshman.
Shut up hippie.
Let's run our 240 pounder right at their 345 pounder.
jack, last year was worse 0-49
knuckle.. no kidding you are a real scum bag
Addazio seems pretty calm for a guy who can't beat good teams. Maybe he thinks he is safe.
maybe he knows he has 3 years more of guaranteed millions
Section D you are a crybaby who likes to lose.
get lost creep.....
He doesn't have a guaranteed contract. Know nothing.
You addressed me speaking of creep.
why is this stupid idiot on a bc site? go root for Umass
Ok, now we'll hopefully get the ball at the 20 or 25 and we can show our RRPP.Seriously, have we ever been totally shut out of first downs during the second half of any game?Addazio, are you going for the record?GTFOOMAM! Tribute to 74!!! :-)
ATL, still waiting for you to call for dazoshit's termination - tonight!
So, how many VT fans are looking at BC's offense thinking "Thank God, we don't have Loeffler anymore."Why are we the frickin' land of misfit toys with coaches nobody wanted BEFORE they arrived here?
What is wrong with UMass? You are stupid idiot scumbag moron for denigrating UMass. What a fucking genius you are.
If Addazio cares, he needs to onside it.
Why the eff didn't you do that before, Loeffler, you stupid sh!t.
Careful with what you say about Loeffler. Section D may have the same affinity for him that he does for the VT QB.
I hate the fake onsides.
. . . Sarcasm. Section D can go F himself if he hasn't already.
It could be 23-16 if lichtenstein hit his fg and Dazzler had him kicker when he should have.
The refs missed an illegal hands to the face call on that 3rd down.
At least we are now trying. Go for the endzone.
That pass was hurried of course, but still 5 yards short of the marker.
Beat the spread. Held the under. Like said earlier in the week VT was beatable. They are overrated at 16
The ESPN guys are basically saying that Addazio hasn't done enough. That's something.
I agree that VT was beatable tonight.Oh well. Someday enthusiasm will return, but ....................Go BC. Players, hang in there.
Where was that wr sweep pass when we had a shot vs Clemson? Great play and I wish we could see more of that less of 3 dives up the middle. Daz coaches like if he keeps score close his job is safe or he wants to get fired I'm not sure wich is true.
It's all become pointless. Never to Excel.
Had tickets but went to see Blade Runner movie instead. Looks like it was a better use of the 3 hours.Clown show got to go.
We covered. That's a win. Congrats to the entire BC community.
It will be a challenge to instill in student fans, alums and college football fans the need to stay in their seats beyond halftime.There has to be a change in culture for sure.I'd like to know about the pre-game atmosphere, and whether or not it was still Gestapo like control, etc.That's part of the culture too - that must change.I could have stayed for the game, having family business in the Boston area Thursday and Friday, but I flew home this morning instead.That's how bad it is from my point of view.
You know they are coming with blitz schemes on 3rd & long. The offense is in 3rd & long pretty much in every drive of every game. It amazes me how much the coaching staff either does not have faith in the talent on offense or doesn't know it. There are two ways to fix this; pass on first down and at least get five...teams are not scared of the deep or intermediate game, so they will give you that. Do the silly dive or power run that gains next to nothing and voila...3rd & manageable and you can open up the playbook. Instead, its the same game plan: run, run short pass not even close to the sticks. But wait...tonight they had a wrinkle!!! A no huddle offense and calling the same running game scheme you would have even if you did huddle, but now, the defense has no chance to rest!!! The clowns calling the game even noticed this.It's time to move on. In college football, the best defense is offense. Sort out the defense later. Just make sure the defense hits hard and plays through the whistle. At least you have a chance in over 60% of your games and you are guaranteed a bowl spot if you commit to outscoring teams rather than this halfway bravado of conservatively playing superior teams straight up. Offense would have beaten Clemson and would have beaten VT tonight. No more freshman or injury excuses. No more sticking your chest out just to get get it caved in week to week. Let Brown and White go; use the running backs in the pass game. If this continues, next year the excuses shift to the defensive side of ball while the offense becomes minimally competent under the current regime. Jarmond will not fire these guys this week or next; but he has to put his stamp on the athletic department by hiring a coach that will somehow find a strength to play to. Then basketball season starts...ugh.
This is one loss closer to having a new coach. When the total hits 7 then Daz is toast although I think they will wait until the day after the season ends. Hopefully we win a few more games so that there is something to build on for next year. With Louisville up next another loss is likely and you will start to hear talk of "winless in ACC games". Let's hope we avoid that distinction.
Winless in ACC 2 out of 3 years and two wins last year.2 and 22. Great job, coaches.
