This game will go a long way in determining if we see a new coach for next year. If BC loses there is little hope for Daz with likely losses against FSU and NC State. If they win then Syracuse becomes the tell tale game assuming a win against UConn.

John said...

When you come right down to it, as STL_Eagle points out, this is a huge game for BC and Addazio.

ATL_eagle said...

Starting with the zone read. I am surprised when other teams don't run that play 40 times a game to us.

ATL_eagle said...

Nice run by Brown.

Danny Boy said...

Brown needs to get down on that scramble. He’s not getting extra yards and just getting punished.

Big Jack Krack said...

Slow handoff up the middle.
, but we converted.

Big Jack Krack said...

Let's get 7.

ATL_eagle said...

Virginia is going all out to stop the run. Should open other things.

Big Jack Krack said...

Bad call IMHO.

Bravesbill said...

Damn is that infuriating. Throw it past the sticks!

ATL_eagle said...

Wow. Great call and great run.

Big Jack Krack said...

I like it, I like it.

EL MIZ said...

shocking how good we look. converting on 3rd downs? who is coaching this team?

ATL_eagle said...

That will stink if it is called back.

Bravesbill said...

Good call although it was snapped 2 seconds too late.

EL MIZ said...

have to give credit to Daz - he has recruited speed well. WRs getting into space taking it to the house - White and Smith. holy moly!

Bravesbill said...

Caught a huge break there.

Big Jack Krack said...

Ok Coach - keep up the pressure, and don't let up on the gas!!!

Big Jack Krack said...

We might have gotten a break for sure, but we'll take it. :-)

EL MIZ said...

will be a good test case for "is Daz still an idiot" - how do we attack now with a 17 point lead. are we going to go into just run out the clock or will we keep attacking.

post "it will be beautiful" this team looks very good.

ATL_eagle said...

The refs are helping us too.

eagleboston said...

6 of 7 on 3rd downs. What a difference from the past 2 years!

Big Jack Krack said...

Snap fumble too bad. Maybe we can convert again.

7 more would be great.

Go BC - keep it up.

As my grandfather said - if you get a guy down, don't let him get up!

Big Jack Krack said...

Play calls - play calls.

Big Jack Krack said...

What a difference.

ATL_eagle said...

This is unbelievable.

Big Jack Krack said...

I'll say it again - don't let them get up.

Great start, BC.

STL_eagle said...

Who are these guys....looking good so far

Bravesbill said...

Where was this all year?

Shabby1011 said...

Das Boot needs to put that in the end zone

CT said...

Kudos to Loeffler.

Dillon has changed this offense.

ATL_eagle said...

They are just giving it away.

Shabby1011 said...

Defense is playing as good as the offense, D has been relentless at the ball

ATL_eagle said...

Rough drive for Torres. Missed tackle on a previous play and also the pass interference.

Big Jack Krack said...

Pass interference was iffy, I think.

I hope we can keep up the momentum in the second half.

We'll see.

del olio said...

OK. Halftime. They will adjust. How will we adjust to their adjustments? Off their scoring drive to end the half, how will our defense respond in the second half? What have we got planned for the first possession of the second half? Can't wait to find out the answers to all these questions ... This has been FUN!

bceagle93 said...

More 1st half yards than total yards in 3 games combined. Maybe it took empty stands, his boss coming to every game and donors voting with their checkbooks for Daz to get it.

He has to win out to keep his job. Looks like he is finally acting like he gets that.

CLB said...

PI was Tickytack...great half though

ATL_eagle said...

Needs to keep the foot on the gas in the second half.

JBQ said...

Holy smoke. Did we sneak in players cut from the NFL? What a pass from Brown to Walker. A pat on the back to an unknown in Ray Smith (96) at defensive tackle. I believe the other tackle is Merritt. Both are great and clogging up the middle.----Addazio lost it on the holding call. Actually, I thought that it was a good call and the BC player pulled down the defender. He is under lots of pressure.---I don't understand that. He gets paid for three years and the extension win or lose. BC really looks good. No matter. It is time for a coaching change.

CT said...

The throw game is coming around, you know?

Big Jack Krack said...

Will he use the short throw game on 4th and 2?

Big Jack Krack said...

Why go to 2 runs up the middle?

Shabby1011 said...

Good drive to get points out of the half

Big Jack Krack said...

Okay. Hoped for 7 but at least we got 3.

Jeff Smith was pretty open on that deflection, near interception.

Our receivers are finding daylight and getting open.

We need/want 2 more scores at least!

I hope the D can tighten up.

Big Jack Krack said...

We need to be up by more than points. Especially with poor tackling.

Big Jack Krack said...

20 points.

Big Jack Krack said...

Come on Loeffler on first down.

Shabby1011 said...

Why does Hillman go to the wrong side every time on play action?!

del olio said...

That was a play the OLine couldn't get earlier this year!

bceagle93 said...

Wow. I cannot remember the last time I have seen this team play angry, hard nosed football. Particularly on offense.

del olio said...

Sa Wheat!!!

eagleboston said...

What an awesome drive!!!

bceagle93 said...

AB13 for Heisman.

Big Jack Krack said...

One of the reasons we were so frustrated earlier was becuase w felt this team had the potential.

A team that improves every week is fun to watch.

Let's go, BC. Don't let them get up off the turf.

Keep that tough, angry attitude.

eagleboston said...

When I booked my trip for Florida State in August, I figured I would see a wipeout. Now, I think it could be a good game. Friday night at Alumni should be rocking.

eagleboston said...

The missed tackles on defense are a significant problem.

Big Jack Krack said...

Agree about the missed tackles.

Big Jack Krack said...

4th period up 27 points. Let's go, guys - keep this up and you have a chance to win going away.

Don't let them up. Give them sh$t.

Stuff UVA!!!!

CT said...

Yeah, our LBs have issues.

Big Jack Krack said...

Didn't like that sequence.

del olio said...

Good job D!

Big Jack Krack said...

Slow hand-offs up the middle.

Big Jack Krack said...

We're up 24 points - let's run it up the middle.

Big Jack Krack said...

Wow. I'll shut up now.

Those bounces usually go against us.

Great play, John Lamont.

CT said...

Any QB with a punter's number probably isn't good.

bceagle93 said...

When was the last time BC scored 40+ in two consecutive games?

Not time to start sprinkling paper clips Daz, but you got our attention.

Big Jack Krack said...

I saw 99 TJ Rayam in there. I guess we're burning his redshirt.

Another nice interception.

CT said...

That was a sportsmanship play call on 4th down. However, a bootleg scores.

Big Jack Krack said...

When was the last time were saw defensive regulars get a break?

Unreal.

Big Jack Krack said...

I agree, CT.

CT said...

Against the punter/qb.

bceagle93 said...

Answer my own question: in 2000 BC beat Army 55-17 and the following week beat Navy 48-7. That was the last time they put up 40+ in two consecutive weeks.

Big Jack Krack said...

#38 Richard Wilson - Biology Major. :-)

Big Jack Krack said...

Congratulation Boston College - players, coaches and staff.

And BC Fans!!!!

del olio said...

enjoy the periscope everyone!

BC 86 said...

Didn't see the game, congrats bc

Big Jack Krack said...

We're at Hilton Head. Going for a walk on the beach with my Boston College hat!!!!!!!

Thank you, Team.

knucklehead said...

That was a beat down from beginning to end. Awesome win. To let down at all.

Looking back now we have played some very good teams. Looks like that is helping us against the average ones.

Friday night is going to be awesome.

knucklehead said...

Post of the year from Big right there.

Section D said...

Incredible game. Luv'd it.

Never so nervous in a win.

But BC did not just hang on. They played to win all the way

The team played great in the second half.

Terrific win.




JBQ said...

Daz actually calmed down for the second half. He gave a good interview after the game. He even smiled once or twice. The interview with Anthony Brown was also very good. He was humble and put all the glory on his teammates. It didn't hurt to see him kiss his little sister as he ran off the field. There was a small group of BC fans manning the rails after the game. Now, it's Florida State on a Friday night. FSU lost again today to Louisville. They are ripe for the taking.
