Is it Thursday yet? Looking forward to the first real game in a few days.

Ben Hinchey said...

Oh holy cross oh Holy cross... thy sons are made of applesauce...

Georgia Eagle said...

Oh Holy Cross on bended knees, kiss the ass of old BC.

Leather D said...

this will never again be a rivalry and shouldn't be played more than once every 20 years or so. UMass and UConn are local body bags more appropriate to play more frequently.

John said...

My brother is a Holy Cross man. I once dropped him a note and addressed it to the "College of the Holy Crotch".

He got it.

Go BC!

Knucklehead said...

Tim cannot wait for Wake. They suck too and so does Temple. It will be a bit until we have a competitive game.

Knucklehead said...

Another nice day on the heights. Mod thinks it is better when it rains. TGS holds his Providence College attending "sons'" hand when they cross the street together.

Chris Butts said...

BC is just young & inexperienced enough to struggle at times with Both Wake & Temple. Snooze ya lose.
#2's wont allow it

eagleboston said...

Everyone is excited for Wake. Will it even be played? They have a major hurricane bearing down on NC. However, Winston-Salem is pretty far inland.

John said...

Oh boy!

John said...

2 HC injuries already.

This is what we don't want to see on either side.

John said...

I'm watching this (my wife got it somehow - Roku is involved).

AJ Dillon - 74 yards for second score. Not fair. ☺️ 4 carries, 123 yards already. He might be done for the game

eagleboston said...

Did I see that right that Tessitore kicked the extra point?

John said...

Not sure - cool.

Knucklehead said...

Derek Ng(No Good) with the kick. Great kicker name.

Knucklehead said...

Dillon gets 250 and 4. Then he sits.

CT said...

Keep the updates coming. I don’t remember the last time two BC games weren’t televised. Even down here in Atlanta.

John said...

Dillon back out. Gain of 9.Smith and White - first and goal. Dillon - 6 carries, 149 and 3 TDs. Not even going full speed.

Another Howard so far.

eagleboston said...

CT, it's on ESPN3.

eagleboston said...

Brown needs to get rid of the ball. He held it way too long on that sack.

John said...

Sweeney already dropped one.

EJ Perry in; David Bailey at RB

eagleboston said...

Brown and Dillon are already sitting it out. Probably a smart move. Good chance to assess the young quarterbacks.

TGS said...

Dickhead, aka Khead’s Mail order bride spotted in BC locker room before game. No wonder some of the lineman seemed tired.

John said...

Perry to Gline - made a move, scored easily. 28 to 0 Tesstitore kick.

dietmrfizz said...

At least we're getting some practice against the read option which seems to be pretty popular right now.

Bravesbill said...

Second team offense looks pretty ragged. Can’t run at all.

dietmrfizz said...

Lord help us if Dillon gets injured

John said...

4th and 1 - Bailey doesn't get it. Our OLine unable to push HC. Not good.

Bravesbill said...

Backup running game is laughably bad.

John said...

I am not sold on our Offensive Line with A. Lindstrom at center.

Any word on Baker?

Bravesbill said...

Daz still dazzling against Holy Cross....short passes on third and long.

Kevin A said...

We should recruit the hC punter

eagleboston said...

Boy, special teams continues to be an issue. How do they not know the formation rules?

Bravesbill said...

Missed PAT. Another season, same problems.

Big Jack Krack said...

HC still playing hard to their credit.

Hamp Cheevers - pick 6. Saved us, because HC was showing some life, especially on the defensive side of the ball. Another missed XP. WTF?

Big Jack Krack said...

I have never seen a major college football team miss extra points (and field goals) year after year, like this one.

bceagle91 said...

We bring the excitement back to the extra point. Have Daz go to soccer practice. Find a kid with a big leg and have him play on Saturdays.

Bravesbill said...

The last 24 minutes of that half was downright sad.

Big Jack Krack said...

I agree with you, Bravesbill. I think it was also a credit to the HC defensive players who never quit. Our OLine didn't look all that impressive to me. I don't mean to be super critical, but what happens when we play Wake Forest?

And come on, Coach Ricky Brown - get the Special Teams focused and squared away.

Big Jack Krack said...

I also know it's tough when garbage time starts so early.

EJ Perry to start 2nd half.

Glines at RB.

John said...

Perry to Lewis - beautiful TD.

Kit O'Connor said...

Seems like a LOT of commercials for a not-actually-televised game

eagleboston said...

Is Lichtenberg hurt? Have not seen him all afternoon. The kid handling kickoffs has actually done a good job.

eagleboston said...

The special teams are going to cost BC 2-3 games if they don't get this shored up.

Big Jack Krack said...

That punt attempt was pitiful. The punter ran right into the blocker. You can't make this stuff up. Special Teams. Atrocious.

Big Jack Krack said...

Let McDonald do something - like Perry. I don't want to see handoffs up the middle.

Knucklehead said...

TGS. That doesn't make sense, dingbat.

bceagle93 said...

Boys — nice win. Keep focused and maintain this momentum going into Wake.

Daz — easy to beat cream puffs with the talent you have. Great coaches dominate all 3 aspects of a game though (talk to Frank Beamer). Fix the special teams problem ASAP or you deserve to be shown the door.

Bravesbill said...

Yeesh another punt block for a td.

Big Jack Krack said...

WTF - as the commentator said - you never see that. The other one said "you can't have that".

Sdriously - heads have to roll on Special Teams.

This punting deal is frightening.

bceagle93 said...

Teams are going to be salivating when we are back to punt. That is clown show stuff right there.

I'm copping two... said...

How many special teams starters are in now? 2 punt TDs is pathetic!

AlbanyEagle said...

I don’t care who we’re playing.
Special teams errors are inexecusable.
Missed PAT.
Two blocked punts for TD’s!!!?!?!?!

bceagle93 said...

Martin Jaramond, please hire the HC special teams guy before he leaves campus.

Big Jack Krack said...

Let's get this straight. A(n) FCS Team blocks 2 punts for 2 easy touchdowns.

Addazio - cut the sh!t.

bceagle93 said...

Seriously — take a knee on downs 1-3 for the rest of the game and work on punts or field goals. The score does not matter.

Napolean Bonaparte said...

Well - we'll just have to score touchdowns and never punt again.

John said...

We got the punt off and it went about 25 yards. We're in deep trouble there.

Tim said...

Wake Forest returned two punts for TDs today.

CT said...

Purdue lost at home to E Mich U.

John said...

Wow. I think Wake might be tough because they play well in all phases. I don't know what to say about Pudue except I hope they duck against us too.

Hats off the Holy Cross - those guys played hard for the whole game and the coach looks like a good guy. Let's see where they are in a couple or 3 years. Could get going and be like Villanova.

Go BC - beat Wake Forest.

STL_eagle said...

Good to have a game to identify weak areas before we start ACC play. Not so good that the special teams struggled so much. They either need to practice and fix the issues or source some new personnel. Two blocked punts won’t cut it in ACC play.

JBQ said...

As usual, BJK has it right. Two blocked punts for tds is way beyond "out of the question". Nevertheless, this is like asking Mrs. Lincoln how she liked the play. BC is a power house and only Daz could send it to the out house.

John said...

Clemson = Wow. I think we need Petrula at Center against them. I should know their names, but the guy who lines up over center sometimes just pushes the center straight back into the QB. He puts his hand right under the neck and bull rushes. Baker at 290 or A Lindstrom at 280 will be way overmatched - never mind in style and ability, but weight and sheer strength.

Higgins #5 - who the heck is going to cover that dude? 6"4", 215 can catch in traffic, escape and evade all the way to the end zone - he's fast!!!!!

Temple lost to Buffalo.

John said...

Dexter Lawrence is 6'5", 350.

Christian Willing is 6'4", 315.

John said...

Wilkins - I hate auto-correct.
