I think many people are under-estimating how good BC is

I may be wrong here, but in the past 2 games (ND and CLEMSON), BC was neck-and-neck with both until the 4th quarter. I think their depth became an issue for BC late in those two games. Not sure what happened in their game with Wake because I did not watch it. In any case, if depth did not cause their last 2 losses, and if CLEMSON was not seriously holding back for VT, then we will have issues going forward. Other teams can see our strengths and weaknesses just like BC was able to do. From what I saw, BC is a very competitive team and will do well the remainder of their schedule. They did beat the team that beat Nebraska, so they are not a cupcake team by any means.

Now I'm more worried about Wake. :) Okay - just kidding.

Against Wake they had 5 turnovers, that was the only reason they lost.

Your are absolutely correct


BC is good, old fashioned, football. 80's style.

I for one am glad you are stopping. You are one of the most ignorant posters ever. You obviously think very highly of your own opinion, unlike the rest of us - RockHillTiger

I posted this in another topic...

Boston College will honestly surprise you in what we actually played.

Team Passing Efficiency Defense & Rushing Defense:
http://www.ncaa.com/stats/football/fbs/current/team/40
http://www.ncaa.com/stats/football/fbs/current/team/24/p3


Boston College now sits at #16 in the nation at Team Passing Efficiency Defense, and #127 in Rushing defense...and you wonder why the run game was the plan? o_O I wouldn't say #16 in team passing efficiency defense is trash.

And then for a total defensive look, let's take a look at the updated NCAA S&P+, which factors in playing cupcakes, garbage time TD's, etc that skew basic "total defense" rankings only looking at total yards and not counting where they come from....the S&P removes the crap and gives a better look into overall efficiencies:
http://www.footballoutsiders.com/stats/ncaa2017


After ND ran all over them the prior game, they were still sitting at #27 S&P+ Defense last week. Now, they are at #40 after Clemson put 27 unanswered on them in the 4th quarter, but still in the top 50 defenses. And as much as people think NC State has a decent defense, they sit at #39 in S&P+ defense...one rank spot higher than BC, just to give some insight.

And for comparison, they are better than Old Dominion, ECU, and have a better S&P+ defense than WVU (#85 S&P+ defense btw)....for those Hokies out there not looking at Clemson's #3 S&P+ defense.

For those coots, LA Tech has a better offense S&P+ than BC (not like BC has really been known for offense much, and they only scored 7 on Clemson), but a much worse defense, #112 in S&P+ defense, than #40 S&P+ defense BC. LA Tech also has much worse Special Teams S&P+ defense (#89 vs #21). And you only won by 1?? lol.


So BC is good but OU and OSU suck? Got it!***

Glad we won big in the 4th....it was getting frustrating and embarrassing for the defending national champs.
