VA Cane

Just lucky Solar, was adding couple on the last blog.
Hope we have a little lady luck tonight!! Never hurts!!

VA Cane


I was looking at our roster; 6 place kickers listed!!
2 punters listed....both are bad real bad!
I have never seen us so bad in the kicking game....and the kick coverage game ever!
Thomas is very good and even DJ has done well when he was in there....but our kick and punt coverage, kicking FG XP are ....a mystery....poor and there is no excuse!
Lets hope for better!

BC is 3-9 all-time against Miami in Chestnut Hill. The last time BC defeated the Hurricanes at home was a 28-14 victory in 2007.

Boston College will recognize the family of Welles Crowther, a former BC lacrosse player, during the game against Miami, in BC’s annual Red Bandana Game.
Crowther is known as the “Man in the Red Bandana” after he saved over a dozen lives in the South Tower of the World Trade Center during the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. He wore a red bandana, which he carried with him and wore during his playing days at the Heights, to protect himself from the smoke and dust.

Not even close.......

Bermuda Triangle

That BC back is a grown ass man.

solarcabe

Same ol shyt

solarcane

Lets see whats cooking 2 run plays an incomplete pass and short punt

Same game plan same result

mi@mic@ne

up tempo...richt must have read the space ...lol

VA Cane

Pretty nice play...surprised we got the call....The one to Wiggins the announcer said should have been caught...no way too far behind him.
Nice drive if we can do that consistently we will be ok...the D got punched in the face...they must play better...step up guys!
Execution Aggression important....that motion call is so common for us...think guys!

mi@mic@ne

they must handle the te...or it will be a long night

VA Cane

Agreed miami stop that old slow stuff...too much thinking no action!

VA Cane

That trick stuff is so predictable how we continue to bite on it amazes me...stay with your guy!

mi@mic@ne

man every year we get beat by that ofense

mi@mic@ne

trick plays are killing us ...and the te...two dam plays

JRamos

what is going on with the D, looking like the Dolphins last night smh!!!

Nick

Overrated defense. When they don't create turnovers they are toast. BC is going to pound them and wear them out. Terrible job!

mi@mic@ne

he cant run the trick plays all game...we need to pick him off ...we missed an easy pick

solarcane

Diaz can adjust as well as anybody but he has to do it before halftime

JRamos

Had a bye week and still looking discombobulated

The 1st  Horseman

The End Is Near

Where do send my Banner donation

Elliott

Wow. BC looks real good!

mi@mic@ne

we are struggling with an unranked team...think about that

mi@mic@ne

Butch that is all

solarcane

we are struggling with an unranked team...think about that

Posted by: mi@mic@ne | October 26, 2018 at 07:41

we been in the wrong conference for a decade

VA Cane

The blocking is not good....any qb would have problems. now we need a quick stop...cannot allow anther TD...If I am BC I run it right at that D. 40 degrees, cold for us...run them big backs 4 quarters make us tackle...are we up to it? I would find out if i am BC.
they are much improved...I remember when they were not so good.
I am not a fan of any Boston area team; that being said they are all tough and competitive.
Pats, Celts, Red Sox, BC....tough customers that i respect very much!

Elliott

Team looks horrible. We lose every game left this year. I’m disgusted.

mi@mic@ne

te...what a killa

mi@mic@ne

every year ...its over

VA Cane

I like their approach to offense...hard tough but quick...like it!
I do it that way...sigh...always wanted us to do it that way...we used to run it use TE...power at you....what the heck went wrong guys?
Clappy Randy AlPa CMR...thats what went wrong....soft passive nice guy approach to a tough game...got to go after people....initiate contact in all 3 phases

AeroCane

I had no idea we were playing Alabama tonight;

solarcane

VA its that marky mark gene they are born with.

mi@mic@ne

we cannot get to the next level with richt...we ve had coaches who got us there...butch

JRamos

209yds for BC in the 1st, ship sinking fast

Herbieibis

Their running what we z
Should be running a true pro style. Problem my is it's hard to find zma QB any more who plays under center.
The Herb mentioned last week that the Dee is due for a bad half, well it's here.

AeroCane

Richt is done! He should not have taken this job - it’s clear he’s not even as motivated or good as he was at Georgia, and he wasn’t a world beater there either.

Bad job by Blake James and most of us knew this.

As in business- cut your losses! Do it! Make Diaz the interim and then hire whoever - someone who will hire qualified coordinators and not their relatives

The 1st  Horseman

1st mothfuka that gotta go is Blake James

VA Cane

Do we want to tackle that big boy....grab and arm tackle....got to wrap him up.
They are pretty good indeed!

AeroCane

Diaz had 2 weeks and couldn’t prepare - shit
Maybe this will be richts ‘Golden’s Clemson’

mi@mic@ne

We all new this was gonna happen...the decision was a let down

VA Cane

That back is tough...keeps moving...churning....and we back off too cold hes to big we are not into it....there are no excuses for that kind of tackling.

the 1st  Horseman

Season Over

Nick

This is an absolute disgraceful performance by this team!!!! Richt has to go!!!

Herbieibis

Arm tackling ain't getting it. Dee looks drugged.

The 1st Horseman

Fly tha Banner

VA Cane

Good play by Mike TE was wide open for sure!!!!

mi@mic@ne

time for perry

mi@mic@ne

we need 30 points to win

Dude on a Pale Horse

Why we always look like p*ssies playing up north? FL boys cant be THAT soft?

80's Canes

It looks like the girls don't like playing in the cold. A true embarrassment to this University and all the great,tough men who wore that uniform before and were champions.

mi@mic@ne

next year bc is gonna be terrible..full of seniors

VA Cane

Addazio is a good coach....was big part of FL titles....he's sharp.....no credit to Urban Flathead!

mi@mic@ne

he must have read the space ...all short pass lol

solarcane

now the blog will go 180 and we are badazz again, these comments are as predictable as the sun coming up

JRamos

D needs to step the F up now!!!

mi@mic@ne

we bad we bad

AeroCane

Impressive drive; let’s go D!

VA Cane

I cannot ever think of us as badazz....not since 2003....15 years of very average often bad football.
We may never be tough again....our D at times has been tough...never bad never feared.
Remember when we would "Crack the Sky Shake The Earth" (a nod to the Viet Cong toughness) when we were the best.....we lost it that night in the fiasco bowl....and through the 4 Horsemen of Our Apocalypse....Slappy Onion, AlPa, and CMR we may never get it back.....sad huh?

mi@mic@ne

rich getting the ball to our perimeter ..let them make the plays ..short passes turn into long runs

NativeCane

Is it wrong to feel extreme vexation for the red bandanna parents....TSully, do I need Jeezus?

AeroCane

Turnover! It’s the only way we will stop them

AeroCane

Totally true and I agree VA!

solarcane

BC = 10 guys and a locomotive

mi@mic@ne

i see a lot of holding

mi@mic@ne

they hold 55

VA Cane

Why take that penalty...decline and make em punt

solarcane

...sad huh?

Posted by: VA Cane | October 26, 2018 at 08

amen

mi@mic@ne

diaz adjusting..look for turn overs and a big hit on the qb

solarcane

Rosier is feeling it a little
lets hope he doesnt crap out

mi@mic@ne

our o needs to be ready for this situation..we need to pass

solarcane

27 yd punt coming up

mi@mic@ne

its time to move the ball not crap out,,,its momentum

mi@mic@ne

too high

solarcane

Crap out
Crap punt

mi@mic@ne

20 yard punt...geeezzz way to let them in again...

Dude on a Pale Horse

We have the worst Punter in CF. Period.

Herbieibis

Great Wiggins cuts route short Rosier throws high and behind him. Feagles does what he does best 35 yd low liner.No major univ. should have a punter this bad.

VA Cane

2 Blocks in the back...ST blunders you just cannot commit....they are what i call dumb penalties...offside, motion,block in back, late hits, unsportmanlike for fighting or jawing...brainless penalties...unfortunately we have always had them....but in the day we were so good we overcame all of them remember 3rd and 43....we must get better.

VA Cane

Herbie you are so right....hell i am 60 and cant punt pretty good....40 or so...and I am old as baseball....SAD!

mi@mic@ne

if he hits that short post there is a lot of room...

Herbieibis

1:40 and time outs and we are running and 3 3 yd. Passes.

IraqiCane

How sad.

VA Cane

a little underthrown...little? he was behind them!

Nick

Thats an easy touchdown with a competent quarterback! Rosier is total trash!

VA Cane

Ugly play on last play....ugly football for us!

Dude on a Pale Horse

No Timeout for a Hail Mary?

mi@mic@ne

wide open on the fly..we had qbs who would slobber all over themselves for that pass

TruCane81

Should have been a tad. Malik is Malik.

Oh well.

TruCane81

Td

Herbieibis

Rosier has about a 35 to 40 yd. arm and that's being kind. Should of been intercepted and then take a sack we just needed an out route.

raizecane

I was wrong....i said this blog would implode at 8:15.....it imploded much earlier

JRamos

Looking sloppy at the end, even if the WR never tripped, pass was short by a mile

raizecane

WR only tripped because he had to make adjustment to a underthrown ball.....

solarcane

we play like the proverbial @ss juice
and we are right in the game
the defense might wake up on third down

DJ Dallas is blocking, running hard, returning like a mad man, making tackles on special teams
hes the only guy I see that hates to lose
