In-game comments post: Pinstripe Bowl

It is the last game of the year and a chance for Addazio to get to eight wins. The weather is freezing. The opponent is old school and we are playing in Yankee Stadium. Let's do this!

Next to BC, Iowa is the team I have viewed the most. I wish I were in a sports bar in Des Moines proudly wearing the BC colors, but I am visiting family in North Carolina.

Iowa is eerily similar to BC. They recruit 2 and 3 stars, coach them up and put more players than they should into the NFL.

BC’s Dillon gets all of the press, but Akrum Woolley is a very dangerous back. I’m a little concerned about BC’s depleted defense.

Stanley is a big, imposing QB. you cannot just rush 4 against him. You need to blitz.

The Iowa linebackers are exceptional. BC is going to have to be more balanced to keep them off balance.

Iowa, like BC, will slip tight ends put for passes. BC needs to be aware of this.


Will Yankee Stadium turn to the west and wave to the kids at Iowa Children’s Hospital at the end of the 1st quarter? That wold be a cool recognition of the best new tradition in college football.

Go Eagles! Eagles are tougher than hawks.

knucklehead said...

Like I said earlier. Less than two picks and we win.

CT said...

Good stop. Bad QB. But still. Good stop.

eagleboston said...

Holding them to a field goal was huge there.

JBQ said...

Good return as consistently by Walker. He has been a bright spot all year. Let's see if Wade can overcome his mistake.

eagleboston said...

That away, Wade!

Eagle66 said...

Nice pass. Need that to loosen up for Dillon

Eagle66 said...

Icy

eagleboston said...

Why aren’t the Eagles wearing cleats?

CT said...

Nice little drive. Good punt. Field sucks. Northern bowls are dumb.

Mosi said...

I was just going to ask the same, it looks like our skill position players have no cleats or turf shoes. They are slipping all over the place

Eagle66 said...

D

Eagle66 said...

Good enough

Mosi said...

Kurt Frenez in a hoodie in 17 degrees is 2017 example of Bowie Kuhn in the World Series

Look it up kids

Eagle66 said...

Lady on tv saying BC is trying various shoes. Hope the find the right ones.

Mosi said...

Did Daz just burn Lewis’ redshirt ? I don’t remember him playing earlier.... could be the best #11 receiver since Bucky Godbolt

Eagle66 said...

Omg!

Eagle66 said...

Dillons unbelievable!

eagleboston said...

BC is winning the line of scrimmage. Great drive!!!

CT said...

Stop their run we'll be ok.

CT said...

Or that.

Eagle66 said...

😬

Eagle66 said...

They got a back too!

eagleboston said...

Woodley is dangerous. You have to stop him or BC will lose.

eagleboston said...

Wadley. Damn spell check

eagleboston said...

That’s a BS call!

Mosi said...

Booger is right, keep that flag in your pocket

Big 10 crew?

Eagle66 said...

Sucker pass

CT said...

Referees are what we pay to see, right?

Like watching the Falcons-Saints game.

Absurd.

Eagle66 said...

They’re 3 point favorites. Hmm!

eagleboston said...

They did the wave. Love it!

del olio said...

solid blocking on that smith run

Eagle66 said...

Did Dillon get hurt?

CT said...

The slipping just makes it dumb.

Eagle66 said...

Wow! BC doesn’t do that! Go Eagles 🦅

eagleboston said...

Me like!!!

bceagle93 said...

Finally a bounce going our way.

We are definitely the better team on both sides of the ball. Let’s just hope the field conditions and refs do not become bigger factors in this game. Then it may require Daz to perform some strategery....and we know how that usually goes.....

Eagle66 said...

Good sack

del olio said...

contributions from lots of guys

Eagle66 said...

Beltzers down.

Eagle66 said...

These announcers are brilliant

CT said...

Our B defense is better than their A offense.

Eagle66 said...

Touched a Hawkeye and another guy touched it from end zone as I saw it.

CLB said...

Looks good; keep your feet; great run

Eagle66 said...

Just learned a good BC fried’s wife has Parkinson’s disease. Prayers

bceagle93 said...

Their O-line is about as good as Booger McFarland is as a booth analyst.

Mosi said...

God bless her ‘66

CT said...

We usually miss into that endzone.

CT said...

why rush?

mod34b said...

Why no time out pre kick. ?

Stupid - kid needs not rush

mod34b said...

BC seems to be slipping more than Iowa.

Wrong cleats/shoes??

eagleboston said...

Dominating but we are only up by 7. I said this would come down to a field goal. Hope it is not that miss by Lichtenberg that decides the game.

mod34b said...

Answer: Daz is a natural meat head

@MrNASAgang said...

Why the rush? Evens SA was confused.. Special team coach has to do better.

Edmonds 632 said...

Their 10 points were a gift. Let that D continue to dominate their O line. Give Dillon the rock.

@MrNASAgang said...

Even*

Eagle66 said...

What are the linemen wearing?
Maybe they should put on the kinda cleats I wore in HS.

CLB said...

Should have used the TO. Thanks for not swearing coach

ATL_eagle said...

BC needs to put Iowa away early in the 3rd. The conditions are just begging for one team to break the other's spirit.

Mosi said...

Right Bill we need a stop right off the bat


Please Daz this is a winnable game, don’t screw this up

Eagle66 said...

It’s about 22 degrees now and forecast to get in the teens. So score first and often early.

Eagle66 said...

Looks like a small crowd. Not surprising in this weather. I did not drive the 6 miles from Fort Lee.

Unknown said...

For some reason my comments are being deleted. Perishtheeagle

Eagle66 said...

I guess they have shoe problems too

eagleboston said...

This is way too tight. BC is letting Iowa hang close and Wadley or Fant will blow this game open. Really needed that field goal at the end of the half and the bs touchdown off the unsportsmanlike penalty may come back to haunt the Eagles.

Defense is playing great. But I worry about the depth.

eagleboston said...

Oh, oh, Wadley getting hot.

eagleboston said...

Oh, boy. Not good

Eagle66 said...

Oops

Eagle66 said...

Sadly is great too.

Eagle66 said...

Wadley

eagleboston said...

So much for domination. We did not capitalize at critical points and now they have all of the momentum. Offense needs to answer.

CLB said...

Ugh.

eagleboston said...

Our defense is too depleted. Is Beltzer out for the game?

CT said...

Nice throw. We're ok.

ATL_eagle said...

I think Iowa has their game plan figured out and adjustments made? Can Addazio do the same?

Mosi said...

Has he ever?

CT said...

Iowa is not good. But that 3rd down run is all u need to know.

eagleboston said...

Really poor play calling on that last drive.

eagleboston said...

Ferentz completely out-coached Addazio at half

eagleboston said...

That was a much needed stop by the D.

CT said...

No. we're ok. This is our 2nd string defense. And they're still better.

eagleboston said...

The offense is just flat

CT said...

The staff has no confidence throwing the ball downfield.

TGS said...

Even when he easily has the better talent, the Daz struggles. Only he could have a 6-1 lead in yards at the half and be in a close game.
Btw, Nice use of his last TO at end of half.

mod34b said...

Daz will now make pre4th Q adjustments. Not.

Garbage 3rd quarter

eagleboston said...

BC does not have the better talent. These teams are even.

Why would they throw a screen pass in front of the Outlaw Josey Jewel? That is just plain stupid.

CT said...

Disagree. We are playing frosh lbs.

eagleboston said...

Forget Dillon. Wadley is the beast now.

eagleboston said...

CT, they have 3 O-linemen out.

eagleboston said...

Surprised Iowa passed on 2nd down. We have not been able to stop the run

CT said...

Ok. What does BC have defensively?

Pretty impressed actually.

CT said...

Oh and Wade.

eagleboston said...

Great, this could be the game-winning field goal. Time to pray to my deceased son. He got us a win versus Louisville in football and Duke in basketball.

CT said...

Watching this, I'm actually pretty optimistic for next yr. wow. The field stinks. Backup QB. Backup defense.

Forest. Trees.

eagleboston said...

CT-I agree. The defense is playing well all things considered. The offense has stalled out. That is the issue here. Also kick off coverage has been uncharacteristicly horrible.

eagleboston said...

Sweeney!

del olio said...

is that Bucky effen Dent over Jim Reid's shoulder in the booth? Not a good vibe

del olio said...

sweeney having a big game

eagleboston said...

What is with all of the false starts today?

ATL_eagle said...

This is going to OT again, isn't it?

CT said...

Pick 6. Coming.

eagleboston said...

This game could come down to Lichtenberg’s miss before half. Frustrating!

Unknown said...

Problem with this game is if BC wins it will reinforce Dazzoloser to play not to lose instead of playing to win

eagleboston said...

Finally called a hold on Iowa.

eagleboston said...

Great D there!

Mosi said...

Let’s kill that clock with 6

dietmrfizz said...

Yards are 378-158 and it's a tie game..

Mosi said...

Ok D your time

Eagle66 said...

Bad

mod34b said...

Fumble. Big gain

Ugggghhh

eagleboston said...

Damn, I guess my son was an Iowa fan.

mod34b said...

And quick TD.

Oh my

Eagle66 said...

O no!

eagleboston said...

Too bad our QB can’t throw like that

mod34b said...

Wasn’t wade’s “fumble” a forward pass?

CT said...

Yeah. Wade is simple. There is no reason for this game to be close. Except. QB.

CT said...

Next yr should be pretty good. See ya then.

Unknown said...

Problem with this game is if BC wins it will reinforce Dazzoloser to play not to lose instead of playing to win

ReiDaDor said...

Of all the bad play calling we’ve seen from the BC offense over the last few years I’ve never seen it as bad as it is tonight. It’s truly unbelievable. It’s a bowl game you have nothing to lose why not take some chances and actually try and win the game? Instead handoff 1st and 2nd down when it’s not working and put yourself in 3rd and long where the whole world knows you are going to pass. Truly unbelievable..and for the record Lindstrom is a piece of garbage. He has gotten continually beat over his career yet for whatever reason he continues to get hyped..what an absolute abortion this game has been...

eagleboston said...

Really pissed about that unsportsmanlike call in the first half. Credit Iowa for making adjustments and staying in the game. Credit Addazio for giving it away with stupid 2nd half play calls.

TGS said...

Outscored 17-3 in 2H. Par for the course for the worst coach in the country. He is what he is after five long years, but some stooges on this board still cling to the irrational hope he will somehow, at age 58, figure it all out.

ReiDaDor said...

The unsportsmanlike call was an embargo all those who call themselves a referree. If that was a penalty than the same penalty should have been called against the Iowa receiver who caught the long pass in the 3rd Qtr when he stood up and made the first down signal in close proximity to the defender. How always that any different?

ReiDaDor said...

Embarrassment

ReiDaDor said...

You are right I hate to say

eagleboston said...

3 minutes to go and you are running right at Jewel? Stupid!

ReiDaDor said...

Hey Daz...note to self in case you haven’t noticed, the run isn’t working.

ReiDaDor said...

ABSOLUTELY unbelievable

ReiDaDor said...

Hey Daz..another note..there is only 1:42 left

del olio said...

game. see you next season

CT said...

Ha. Horrible.

mod34b said...

Possible to Fire Daz after this debacle?

Eagle66 said...

The party’s over. 😌

eagleboston said...

Crap!

BC fan since the 1960s said...

Dillon has slipped on the logo at midfield all game. And he hands it to him there with less than two minutes to go so he can slip again

ReiDaDor said...

I was trying to give Daz the benefit of the doubt after this season but tonight has sealed it for me. What an absolute disgrace. This game shouldn’t have been close....

TGS said...

Not another team in football runs 3/5 plays down 7 with less than two minutes to go. Only fan base in America that equates going 7-6 with a bunch of wins over shitty teams with winning the Rose Bowl.

bceagle93 said...

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the Addazio era at BC in a nutshell.

Outcoached. Clown show got to go.

ReiDaDor said...

Total yds..BC 386 and Iowa 198..great game Daz! Unfreakingbelivable

dietmrfizz said...

I don't even understand why I invest so much energy into watching sports.

I need to reevaluate my life.

ReiDaDor said...

Dillon saved Daz this year..he’s the only reason he will still have a job unfortunately

TGS said...

Imagine being one of the suckers who spent good money to go freeze their ass off to watch this idiot coach?

CT said...

I feel bad for Wade. Not good. But loyal.

eagleboston said...

My brother, who is an Iowa State fan just said Addazio is the worst game day coach he’s ever seen.

Unknown said...

I'm done. Gonna watch another team until Dazzoloser is gone

ReiDaDor said...

Will be interesting to see how many of those early commits back out after watching this debacle...

TGS said...

Unknown, it will be a long wait. He’ll retire from BC after another five to ten long years.

ReiDaDor said...

So, so painful....

Speedie said...

Let’s see what happens with a HEALTHY Jon Baker, a HEALTHY Connor Strachan, a HEALTHY AB.

Remind me how many ACC games did bc win a few years back.

Georgia Eagle said...

Dazoshit reverted to his old timid ways (two runs up the middle and a dropped pass) and we lost. Sound and look familiar?

ReiDaDor said...

That’s all great but with the same HC...you will still get what you got tonight..

TGS said...

Idiot like Speedie are why the administration laughs at real fans who demand BC at least try to live up to its motto, ever to excel.

ReiDaDor said...

That game was lost purely due to being out-coached. 100%

Speedie said...

Blah blah blah. I’m an idiot. Big f’n deal.

CT said...

Yeah. I'm a cynic. But if we stay healthy, we'll be good. Wade cost us. We'll be good next yr.

STL_eagle said...

Winnable game that became a typical loss. Daz did not do much to help the cause but the game really turned on four factors:
1. Two picks off deflections
2. Fumble during late drive
3. Dillon having issues with footing while Wadley having success
4. Wade ok but clearly not difference maker

There is certainly a reason for more optimism next year. BC should win all of their non-conference games so an 8-4 season should be the minimum expectation.

bceagle93 said...

As in, “It will be beautiful”, right?

One person cost us. It wasn’t Wade.

Knucklehead said...

Like I said. If Dillon survives his 40 carries and Wade throws less than 2 ints we win. Neither one happened.

TGS is a dumb bitch.

Craig Yeaster said...

Never to excel!

knucklehead said...

The 9:57 comment is stupid. Just like the commenter.
