A Boston College sports blog capturing the highs and lows of being a BC fan living 1,000 miles from Chestnut Hill.
Crud, the last time we played a team that had lost 3 in a row, we got annihilated.
There’s about as much activity here as there is in the stadium.
The first few minutes are looking great. What's up with the bell ringing after scores? Is that a new thing? I don't recall that when I attended a game Alumni last season.
Good start. Need to keep up the pressure. Daz is already thinking about prevent defense.
STL, I was at Alumni 2 years ago when Petrino jacked up the score. No sympathy for him.
BC cannot cover anyone.
Cant stand that Petrino SCUMM
I agree that they should score as much as possible. Louisville has talent and potential but they seem out of sorts and uninspired. Let’s keep them that way.
Here we go again.... Glines is an outside guy. Get Bailey in there.
Looks to me like he is down. With our horrid defense, you do not want the offense to give these guys a chance.
That's a touchdown. Man, turnovers are a killer.
What an awful overturned call there.
BC is hilariously bad at this point. All starts at the top.
Our D is interfering on every pass.
Leave it to bc to make a horrendous team look good.
FFS.I am following the game on Gamecast while finishing up some work. I may have to find it on at a bar for the second half if it is close. Then again, based on the last five minutes, it may not still be close at that point.
As much as I despise Addazio, this is on the BC players not protecting the ball.Now, watch the offense go cold.
Defensive play calling is terrible too. Corner plays 10 yards off the slot receiver then covers the deep ball. Linebacker trying to cover the slot receiver on out patterns. He gets beat for a ton of yards every time.
Can bc give it away?
They need to fire whoever is in charge of the down and distance. They just flashed up 3rd and goal when BC had 3rd and 5 from the 35
Nice play calling there. Who couldn’t see that third down play coming. About to go down now.
Our team isnt mentally strong. Absolutely crazy seeing our team is mostly seniors
DAZZO SHIT FOOTBALL AT IT'S BEST TIME FOR THE DAZZO LOVERS TO GO INTO THEIR PATIENCE CHA-CHA>OH WELL WHAT CAN YOU DO ?????????? SONG AND DANCE
Might as well root for a loss at this point. Need the clown show to go.
Six years of this shit. I want Dazoshit gone. I don't care if they manage to squeak out a victory. Worse, do you see how the announcers are gushing over Dazoshit? Obviously have their heads up their asses.
We need to score a TD here
If it's a close game, we're hosed. He'll make bad play calls, manage the clock poorly and/or our clown show that is a kicking game will miss a key kick. We need to regain a 2 score lead to Daz-proof the game. Otherwise, we'll muck it up.
Why do they continue to throw 3rd down passes yards in front of the first down?
Brown was horrible on that 4th down pass. I'm still not sold on him. You have to move the ball when you get turnovers.
Bad 4th down pass albeit on a good play call. Bad play calls on downs 1 through 3. Bad execution, bad play calling, bad loss.
Didn't one of the Louisville players say "a bunch of slow players" when asked about watching BC on film?
Whats the difference between the offense from last year and this year? Charlie Callahan? They should be cruising here against shitty Louisville
Ville might as well run this RPO the rest of the game. Can’t stop it.
Why is Sebastian playing and not Torres? Sebastian has been an issue all season.
Daz excels at inspiring football teams - Usually our opponents.
Brandon Sebastian is horrible
Loiudvilectakes the lead.
Dazoshit apologists keeping a low profile today.
More pass interference. Does nobody teach them how to cover without blatantly grabbing people?
20 straight points! Un-Bedazzable!
Blindly happy is our Athletic Department. Sorry you need Type A aggressive and assertive people there to make decisions. Addazio should have been fired in 2016.
Georgia, I have not seen a Daz apologist on here in ages.
Really? Look at the posters who always point to the players and not the dazoshit.
Petrino is smart. He will dunk and dunk all day. BC can not defend short passes. And now with QB running Defense has no clue.
He recruited these boobs.
Yes GE. Not seeing theDaz apologists. Today.
Glines is killing BC today
Again, why are they running routes short of the first down marker? Inexplicable!!
3rd and 10. So throw for 6 yards. wTF
Why do the Fake IRISH WIN ????? WHY DO WE CONTINUE TO ROT ??????YOU JUST HAVE TO BE PATIENT !!!!!!!!! SHUT UP DON'T ROCK THE BOAT
More throws in front of the sticks. What the hell os wrong with these people?
Again, why do they keep throwing short of the first-down marker?
3rd and 10 and Brown throws a very predictable 2 yard pass. You can't make this shit up.
And short throw into traffic. Never a chance to run.
The offense needs a spark. Brown has struggled for weeks now. All of the great coaches make quarterback changes when necessary. You are losing to a team that is a 14 point underdog. If that does not scream QB change, I don't know what does.
Jarmond is too busy tweeting and tailgating to worry about this game.
Zach Allen playing a monster game so far.
At least there’s one aspect of special teams that is good.
Smart time out actually. I am shocked
These penalties are drive killers
Ffs why run it when you don’t have a damn kicker?
Again, another route short of the first down! I am mystified!
SLOPPY SLOPPY SLOPPY JUST DISGUSTING WORKPERSONIFYING DAZZO SHIT PERFECTLY
Lichtenberg for Heisman.Looks like someone got the message on special teams play.....
Oh dear God, my heart. Unbelievable
Settling for a fg with a crappy kicker actually worked this time. Will only reinforce this for the future.
even the announcers are laughing
“An interesting chess match whenever BC has the ball...”Over the top, truth stretching hyperbole never said by an announcer during the Daz era. Until now....smh
The lack of discipline on this team is staggering. Driver killer after drive killer penalties. And did you notice they threw short on 3rd down again?
Btw, I wouldn’t hate an updated version of the throwbacks as the full time uni. The gold pants work, love the block logo on the shoulder pads, but the numbers get bunched on most of the jerseys, making them kinda useless. Maybe bigger numbers without the gold outline.
Since the Wake muff, Walker has really showed up on returns. Good to see him stepping up.
These coaches are idiots. Everyone knew Bailey was going to get the ball on that 3rd down. It would have been the perfect time to do play-action to the tight end, which has worked on multiple touchdowns this season.Oh, and Stup-dazzio blows another 3rd quarter timeout in a tight game. You do not do that! You may need those TOs for a final drive in the 4th.
Stup-dazzio runs into a brick wall again.
That really faked Louisville out, Addazio. Nice call.If Petrula was the center, it would have been a first down.
Great play call on fourth and one. As this game looks like it will be life and death to win, look at Louisville’s other scores this year including giving up 66 points to Georgia Tech last week.
Let's hear it for BC s experienced offensive line
Louisville receivers get past the first down marker. Duh!
Louisville will score on this 95 yard drive.
Crimanelli, now this defense is going to give up a 95-yard drive. This is horrid!
Can our defense stop anyone? Seriously. These guys were pinned in their end & now marching down field. This is unbelievable....
Glad I was wrong.
Whew! Love when I am wrong.
Back to the first half. Was that Borgersen who blocked that punt? Great play.
I love Bailey but at some point you have to throw the ball
Assume everyone has seen the wide shots of the stadium today. How many people do you think are there today?
25,000 maybe? Addazio ball really puts the fannies into the seats.
Pass it in!
Or give it to Bailey
That 4th and 4 was the play of the game. Great play call.
Yeah Bailey. Yeah Travis Levy out of the backfield. Loosen them up even a little and good things happen.
I'd like to see a stop, and then another emphatic drive. Boom!
When this game is over, this may be the most undisciplined, unimaginative, inconsistent, frustrating 5-2 team to ever be one game away from bowl eligibility.It’s not #EverToExcel or #DecideToFly, it’s #ScrambleToDoJustEnoughToNotGetFired...
I hope Zach Allen comes back into the game when we're on Defense.
This throwing short of the sticks is driving me insane
Another 2 yard pass on 3rd and long. You can't make it up.
Yes, throw BEYOND the first down marker!
I’d be interested to see how many times our offense has had 3rd and 7 or 3rd and 8 this year. Seems like every drive there is at least one.
It has been going on since Spaziani who passed it on to Addazio.3rd and long? Pass short.
Other then one drive D has played greatThis one should be 45-7 snooze fest..Daz coaching and horrific turnovers have made this an actual game
Louisville's D is awful. If we continue to throw short of the sticks on 3rd down against even average D's BC is going to get destroyed during the rest of the season.
Glines looks so slow.
I agree - we could have scored more, except for Addazio.Do you think Louisville would have held the score down if the roles were reversed?Let's go BC - punch this in - even though everyone in the world knows what's coming.
They are beating the spread! 24 straight points. Although there is definitely opportunity for improvement.
One positive is that they are holding together without Dillon. If BC had punched in a few of the goal line attempts and avoided giving up so many points off turnovers this game wouldn’t be close. NC State loss looms large from a record standpoint although upcoming games against Miami, Vtech, Clemson likely to bring BC back to the pack in the Coastal division.
STL - Atlantic
I feel as though most of think this team could have been 7 and 0 or at least 6 and 1.So now we'll have to steal two from Miami, Clemson, FSU, and VT and beat Syracuse to have that 8 and 4 year.Go BC!Beat Miami on Red Bandanna Game Night.
Miami and Virginia Tech very beatable. ACC is weak this year except for Clemson. Other teams that are usually good such as Florida State, Miami, Louisville, and Virginia Tech all having down years. Pitt and UNC not any good and Syracuse very mediocre. But BC hasn’t played a team yet they should have lost to so I would expect several more losses in addition to Clemson. They will play call their way into losses and/or shoot themselves in the foot with mistakes.
"Play call their way into losses......." Perhaps my biggest gripe.But a lot of good stuff today, so we don't have to dwell on the bad stuff in victory.
Take it and move on with 13 days to prepare. When Dillon comes back, they have four backs to run the ball.
Second half. Much better. Decent win. Hope there are more wins in the tank
We can beat Miami.
The problem that nobody is talking about is Anthony Brown. He improves with Dillon playing. But I am starting to doubt his ability to be anything more than a one -read QB
He does miss seeing open receivers, it seems
Burned Bailey's red shirt. Glines is hurt or Dillon is seriously injured. High ankles are long-term, Dillon.
