The Upside - Boston College


Bored Historian
Aug 26, 2011
- Another loss but 13-16 sure beats last year’s 27-58 result. BC has passed almost exclusively this year but they didn’t really challenge us to much through the air, although they wound up with decent numbers, (20 for 29 for 208 yards and their only touchdown), mostly off of play action.

- It seemed like BC ran for more than 191 yards but they never got more than 21 yards and we were able to find a way to stop them before the goal line every time except that one possession before the half. 13 points in modern football doesn’t beat you – unless you only score 6.

- Jacobian Morgan showed the ability to throw over the middle and also on the run, which gave us two dimensions we haven’t had. He sees the field well. He was 19 for 30 for 188 yards, a score and a pick, a good effort for a 3 star true freshman who didn’t expect to play this year. The future? We’ll see.

- Sean Tucker, coming off an injury, played virtually the whole game. He got only 11 carries but gained 52 yards. He also caught 2 passes for 34 yards. Cooper Lutz showed his versatility by catching 3 balls for 35 yards in a back-up role.

- Taj Harris caught 7 balls for 61 yards: he was a toe away from 8 for 80 yards and a score – plus whatever he would have gotten in overtime.

- Nykeim Johnson had three kick returns for 70 yards – but was frustrated he zigged to the right when he should have zagged to the left on what should have bene a touchdown, per Coach Babers in his press conference. He’s going to take one all the way before this is done.

- For the 7th time in 8 games, the game wasn’t decided until the fourth quarter. We can stay in games. Now we’ve got to make the plays at the end that will give us a victory.

- Now we get a week off to heal up. The remaining games are at Louisville, here vs. NC State and at Notre Dame. People are penciling us in for 1-10 but think we might surprise somebody along the way.

1-7 with 3(?) to go
