A Boston College sports blog capturing the highs and lows of being a BC fan living 1,000 miles from Chestnut Hill.
Bc by 18!!!
Bc by any number. Just win. Daz, don't screw this up with ultra-conservative play calling.
Getting a little nervous. Preparing for a slugfest. Hope they came with their hard hats
Let’s get it!!!...Go Eagles🦅🦅
I had a dream last night that Tessitore kicked a game-winning field goal. I hope it does not come down to that.
Look at the line up from 4.5 to 6.5. Someone knows something. BC 24W 17
Just got home, turned on the big TV and there is Mark Herzlich on the screen - Mohawk and all.I'm all nerves, because it has been a long time, with a few exceptions, that I have been this excited for our team.And they are playing a tough team in Wake Forest Addazio said in the pre-game he wants AJ to run the rock 30+ times.Let Loeffler do his job!Go BC.
Here we go!
What a monster hole
TD - AJ Dillon.
Yes, Thomas - looked like the old days at OLine U.
What a sequence. Ball don’t lie!
Glad we were the victim of a missed call .☺️
Great play after more referee incompetence.
How many Wake players were fooled by that play?Special Teams snapper. Oh boy!
Conservative would be a screen on 3rd and 11. Running up the middle needs a new description. Addazioed.
Helmet to helmet block against the play. Completely illegal in NFL, not illegal in college???
Come on Addazio - cut the sh!t.
Brown does not look good...
Ha. The refs suck. Hey, try not punting to that guy after last week.
Hey, try punting to that guy.
Special teams does not look good....shocker.
Wonder if we will pass on a first down in this game
We all knew that was coming
Not sharp on ONot Sharp on DNot sharp on S/TSnap out of it guys!!!
Higher expectation not good for BCm
Now I am pissed, Addazio. Let's telegraph everything
OL doesn’t look good...
Is Daz calling this predictable game? Wow
Fucking dazoshit. Same predictable game plan
Open. It. Up. Stop playing to keep it close. We should win by 20+ with the talent differential.
Ray’s stunt up the middle is working. Does Walker intentionally do the exact opposite of what ur supposed to do on punt returns? LVP.
If my count is correct we haven’t thrown on a single first down and once on second down.
Omg, Two runs up the middle and a short pass. RhatsT all dazoshit had
That's all dazoshit has
Gotta make the true freshman QB go the length of the field. Punt, play defense, no more turnovers. Wait. Addazio recruits off of that philosophy. We should be good.
Big 3 & 6 to start 2nd qtr..OL responded on this drive, need to go the distance
Unless the plan is to wear our their D and just lean on them in 2H... but that’s an infuriating brand of football to watch and won’t work against better/deeper teams
Wake offense is gross..Hamp is a stud..BC has to score here
Yeah, gotta make him make a lot of good decisions on one drive. Most 19 yr olds don’t.
Play action deep to kobay off the turnover. Who says no?
Dillon should be able to go pro after this game.
That was a TD!
It’s coming together!roll Eagles!
Gee, another 1st down run.
Special team disasters belong to dazoshit. Complete across the board failure
I vote for a first down run every time so we can end up in 2nd and 3rd and long 80% of the time
Special (ed) teams.
Daz keeping it close.
Brown doesn’t know how many yards he needs for a first down..
What are we doing with these routes on 3rd down?
Towson, yes Towson, threw for 350 yards against Wake’s D
Thanks to dazoshit, bc had the worse kicking team in college football. Way to go, daz
Switched from phone (John) to PC.Those who said we would lose some games because of Addazio are looking pretty smart right now.I am really pissed at this game plan and inability to straighten out special teams.Addazio now has to win we back.We will be down at halftime and they get the ball to start the second half.All those who said WF sucked - Oh yeah? Not when we give them 14points.
Cheevers too short.
If someone told you that BC D forced 2 turnovers and Dillon had over 100 yards rushing early in 2nd quarter, you’d think BC was winning in a blow out. Great coaches make sure their teams execute in all 3 aspects of game, not just the ones where they have the most talent.Clown show got to go.
Another 5 or 6 win season. Dazoshit must go
It’s rare when you can say the defense is kicking ass and you’ve given up 21 points in less than a half
We will not win this game. We haven’t won a close game since Louisville last year.
Cheebers looked like he hotdogging it going for pic. Instead of coverage.
The only cure for this fever is more first down runs
And Oh by the way - they have a freshman QB after the starter was suspended. We will roll him!I have been worried about this game and Addazio is playing right into their hands.We're going to give AJ the rock 30+ times.We have an offense that has many dimensions, and we are doing what?Wow.
I have been to this stadium 2 or 3 times. Wake will get stronger and more confident as the game goes on.Addazio is going to ride AJ all year or until he gets hurt.
Holy shit. A first down pass. And a TD. Go fucking figure.
Loeffler - tell Addazio where to go and let's win this game.
My bad..Brown looks good
Finally. White. It’s either a 3 yd route or a 43 yd route.
2 minute offense or does Addazio run it up the middle?How about AJ on a fly route?
Credit to Addazio for calling the time out on Wake’s third down. Hope BC can capitalize.
Pitiful - now watch another team run the drill.Why does Carlson take 3 or 4 steps to the right before kicking?
Thanks to dazoshi, this game is close
Guess that Dillon in the screen game thing was a joke.
Great to see Herzy in the studio
It’s the rugby style kick. Gives the coverage a little bit longer to get under it too.
What a "sorry a--ed" first half performance especially for special teams. Addazio will ride the horse until he gets hurt. Wake has enthusiasm. BC has the emotions of a rock.
I don't know what to think. AB has been good and not so good. That's okay. Coaching B.S. is not acceptable with this team.Players have to find a way to win tonight.Special Teams is pitiful on a team that has potential this year.Heads need to roll. Get this corrected. The snapper is struggling and the punter is highly suspect. FG kicking is suspect and even XPs. Walker made a mistake = Special Teams First Half grade is F. FFFFFFF.
Not sure you can play Dazzler for Walker dropping ball and Carlson not catching ball..take those two plays away and BC is up 14 and this game is over...BC needs a stop on first drive by Wake and a score and game is over
It's as simple as this - how badly do we want it?Strap on the cin straps, men. We need your best efforts now.Go BC - Let's not get Addazioed.
I'm just frustrated, Shabby. Maybe I over reacted. But the punting turnover was predictable for whatever reason.
Thanks to dazoshit and special teams, this game is close
I agree Big Jack, we all said Special Teams huge factor, have just thought those two players were just really poor individual plays..hopefully avoid those and we have better 2nd half Here we go!!
Make the QB throw the ball. Please?
WF gashing us on this drive
When there are 3 TD’s on screwed up punts in 3 games, there is a HUGE problem. I think Daz gives excuses, not solutions.
Those of you that were claiming a 10-win season or bust were a little over-exuberant. I'm not seeing it. I think 7 is the high mark. If they lose tonight, I'm thinking they will have a real difficult time versus Purdue, NC State, Clemson and Miami, and possibly even Syracuse. Even if they win, I am not impressed with our defense or the special teams. The offense will be fine.
They are loading the box, says the sideline reporter.
This sucks - same old, same old.
My God, Brown had all day to throw that pass.
Thank u AJ. Play-action again.
Brown on fire
That's what we're talking about. All night long! All night long!
Is Lichtenberg hurt? We are almost exclusively seeing Tessitore this season.
Come on BC, you have the lead in the second half on the road... finish!
This team will go as far as AB takes us. Helluva drive. Let’s pass to set up the run! Imagine how dangerous Dillon would be then.
It appears Dillon is struggling but he has 129 yards and it is only mid-way through the 3rd. That's pretty good.
We can’t get blame coaches for players mistakes... Muffed punt not on the coach... Fumble of the snap of a punter.. not on coach... as a player you have to make plays. That’s the game
First and 5. Not a good move.
You have to make this kid throw the ball.
Foot on the gas BC
BC has 28 pts with almost 2 full qtrs to goBC defense has given up 10 pts, can’t count 1st TD on Walker dropThink positive
Dillon is no threat in the pass game. Still.
Absolutely misusing AJ. It pisses me off.
Twice on that drive we were hugely predictable on 2nd and 10s. Can’t block 9 guys.
Make him throw. It’s really simple.
Wake using their RB correctly.
This BC defense is a major concern. They are not at the level of recent years.
I think the D is getting tired.
No beef up front. They are running to our right.
Defense. Yikes. Chubbies. Gassed
Wake's running game is better than ours because of coaching and play calling.Our D was good on that at the end. Okay, let please march down the field properly.
This is the same running game that gave ya trouble last year.. it’s assigment football.. one player take the QB the othe take the RB.. hit them every play. But we stood when it counted.
Defense is good, have given up 10 ptsOffense has to find way to get Dillon holes
The thing with the up tempo RPO that Wake runs is that it is likely to kill their defense. If you make this guy throw! He is a one read guy. Stop. The. Run.
One of the biggest quarters in years coming up. Maybe biggest in Daz tenure.
not a criticism, but Allen has looked out of breath as early as second down, at the beginning of the drive. Eat more meat! :-) This perfect diet stuff is overrated.Just having some fun.Okay - the most important 15 minutes for a good to great year!!Let's go, guys.
Thank u AJ.
Smith having a breakout game
And there it is. Yeah not a coaching issue? Recruit!
You can't make this up. Addazio - are you shitting me?
Right into the line? At D1?
Another missed extra point. Dazoshit has to go.
AB has 8 TDs and 0 INTs so far(and threw just 2 passes against HC)... this team is scary if he can keep that up
Another missed extra point. Jesus H. Christ Somebody go get a high school kicker. Absolutely disgusting
Honestly - this is a disgrace. We discussed this earlier. What's wrong with our Senior kicker - Lichtenberg?Addazio - this is on you yesterday, today and tomorrow. It is unacceptable.I'll march on your office when I'm uo for the Clemson game. I will give you some serious shit to your face. You'll want to shave your effing head even closer.Pitiful.
Seems like snapper is the issue
My huge Addazio pet peeve. In close games, I want all 3 timeouts for a final drive.
Once again, players have to make plays... including kickers
I wanted to enjoy this game, but no. What have we given them now? 15 points, correct?Should be potentially 35 to 10.
Fucking dazoshit. Can't recruit a kicker in five years.FIVE YEARS!
Hold them here.
I’d like to remind everyone that Daz is the highest paid employee at BC. After what we are seeing on the field tonight against an inferior team, anyone still want to defend him?
This D is not what it's cracked up to be.
Wake is a pretty decent offense but I still think our defense is going to cost us some games this season. Not making critical plays at critical times. Offense needs to score at least once more and probably twice as Wake can move the ball at will.
The Defense is Gucci=Good for those who don’t know. No need to worry. If you watch the Wake tape from last year the plays that were killing us, we have under check.
Yes I agree. But he bought the groceries — it is his job to make the meal.
To be fair, D is only responsible for 13 points here...
It wouldn’t be 35-10. They are at 270yds rushing. Point understood, but this RPO has messed us up. I think it’s because we lack DTs. Is there anyone in the pipeline? Ray needs stunts to rush. Wake figured that out.
Against a below average D1 team I would say the defense is awful. Mixed extra point could loom large especially since they can’t even kick a field goal if they get into Wake territory and it’s fourth down
Why does that crappy looking delayed run work for WF? I'll have to look at those runs in slow motion. The RB just slowly waits for the blocks and then moves, but the whole thing develops and our guys should be able to control the line enough to stuff it more than not.Ok - this possession is big. We need to score 7 or 3 - something. Who will kick a field goal?
Watch Wake start having "injuries" to slow down our offense.
They have a true freshman at QB! Yes, it is a different Wake team.
Ok AJ - young man. The highest paid employee at BC is going to ride you all the way.Mix it up.
Jeff Smith having a nice game
What do you do here on 3rd and long?
P.s. how many Jeff Smiths have we had in the last decade?
Brown is fantastic!
Offense has earned their keep. 41 points is potent. Now, we need 1 more stop by the D.
I'm happy for AB and Ben Glines. You go, Coach Loeffler.
Ben Glines from St. Xavier high school in Cincinnati!
Hurricane Brown has landed
That runner was literally walking and BC could not tackle him
Watch the fake here
Ok again, guys. Put them away now.
Those last two plays...I thought Daz got into Wake’s headphones.
5:52 drive anyone?
They need to play action pass here. I know an incomplete wont take time off the clock but we need a first down
Too conservative. Did not like that play-calling there.
I agree - he's betting that Wake won't score for a few minutes, and then we can hold them off.That's bullshit. That horseshit.
Ray just using speed.
Wyatt Ray kicking ass tonight
101 plays! No wonder our D is gassed.
Addazio kicking our own ass with his conservative horseshit.
Good point, EB
100 plus plays. Saban would be pissed. He’d hold a press conference.
The D has let them run over 100 plays because they just aren’t very good
This Wake QB is going to cause trouble in years to come. He made mistakes but he is a player.
They are gassed because they couldn’t stop the run. Pretty simple. Like I said all night, make him throw the ball! And make ur XP’s.
Wake recovers kick they will tie it
All we needed was a first down or two. Nay, Nay. Gary Tranquill returns into Addazio's headphones.Now we have an on-side kick. If they could ever recover, they will tie or win the game because of Addazio. Pure and simple.You play to win. Not to "hold them off".Unreal, Addazio.
Take a knee, take a knee, take a knee, run it down blah, blah, blah.
It’s an ACC win on the road. I’ll take it. Go Eagles!
I love our guys - great win.Thank you very much. Take a few days off and go kick Purdue's ass.Addazio, you have some opportunities for improvement. Get going.
Alright. A couple of extra days to rest up. No idea what to expect with Purdue. Need DTs. Pass rush always good when ur up 14 in the 4th. But I thought last yrs was better. AJ gets credit on those TD passes. Lots of one-on-ones. Best outside talent in awhile.
Purdue is awful this year
Great job boys. Nice ACC win. Get home safe.Daz — this is the most talented team you have had the privilege to coach at BC. Nice job recruiting them — now get special teams figured out and solve some problems on D and make this happen. Here we are, now entertain us.
Don't fall asleep on Purdue.
Love the win. And it is a great establishment of BCs passing acumen which should benefit the run as the rest of the schedule starts to scheme for the passing game, too. But. The O-line is not dominant or, at least, as dominant as they to or we were led to believe. That needs to be realized. For now, savor this.
Hopefully the Offensive Line will improve each week. They certainly could. Did the coach do the right thing moving Petrula back to Right Tackle from Center? Big Ben could clear out some space for AJ.
Yes, let's savor the win, because we would have lost this type of game in each of Addazio's previous years.We have Talent with a capital T.Go BC
Making the ECHOES RING AGAIN FOR BOSTON . Excellent start under very difficult conditions NOW do away with Purdue and Temple and on to NC STate. AS Meta says to Pete and Pete responds "YES THAT WAS BOW WORTHY" GO BC
BC has probably given up more blocked punts for TDs than every other school in the country combined. Blow up the entire special teams unit and start over. The secondary played pretty well but the vaunted D line and linebackers struggled. Part of it has to be due to the fact Wake ran 105 plays which is crazy but they were consistent getting pushed around throughout the game. Let’s hope Brown can keep this up.
Who looked more impressive? Clemson or BC? Didn't Wake beat A&M last year? In 2015 and 2016 BC averaged 17 and 20 points respectively. In their last 12 contests they are averaging 35. A quantum leap. Great road win against a competitive team. Too many negative comments. Enjoy this outstanding team Too many nattering nabobs of negativism. Cheer up.
You sir, need to stay in your lane. Guessing high school hockey.
Doug Flutie 1984 vs North Carolina - 6 TDs (school record)Matt Ryan 2007 vs Wake Forest - 5 TDsAnthony Brown 2018 vs Wake Forest - 5 TDs
Wake Forest is bad. They think they are great though. Like TGS.
