BC drubbing USC. Rutgers beating Penn State.

It seems impossible. So going for a Boneyard jinx.

I hate seeing those fan bases excited with BC close to beating number 9 in the country, and Rutgers on the verge of beating PSU.

BC is starting 5 graduate students on their O-line this year. I've never heard of that before. I'm going to assume their O-line next year is going to absolutely suck?

As for Rutgers over Penn State, don't we want Rutgers to do well? I don't want Rutgers to suck and leaving a bad taste of eastern expansion in the mouths of the B1G decision makers.

Unusually difficult to root against BC, what with the red bandana tribute and all. Hell of a running game!

RU led the entire night. That game was similar to our game against Michigan last year. Lead all night cough it up late. Heart breaker.

BC played a hell of a game and can run the ball. Tyler Murphy is a very good running quarterback and will help BC going forward.

Watching Rutgers lose put a little grin on my face. Lousy way to lose, but I have no love for Rutgers

Murphy's a SR too I believe. So between their QB and their entire offensive line, their offense could be a wreck next year. They do have good Rb's though.

Add Shak Phillips to the list of Grad SRs on that offense. Something tells me Addazio is trying to win quick and get out for a better job while the fire is hot.

If BCU and Rutgers are succeeding, that is one less reason for the ACC or Big 10 to add UConn. We need one or both programs to suck.

Both programs have sucked for quite a while. BC for a little over a decade; Rutgers for a little over 100 years.

This is stupid. Rutgers doing well and drawing well brings credence to the idea that eastern expansion can be beneficial. They were supposed to be a train wreck and may actually be a middle of the pack B10 team. Think, then post.

I get the " hate : , but it needs to be based on reality, not on inaccurate info. BC has not " sucked for 10 years"... only 3 years recently ( 2010-2012).
BC was 9-3 in 2004 as BE Co- Champions. ( beat Penn State, UNC, etc )
BC was 9-3 in 2005 ( beat BYU, Clemson, Boise State, etc )
BC was 10- 3 in 2006 ( beat Clemson, BYU, Virginia Tech, Florida State, etc )
BC was 11- 3 in 2007, ACC Champions, Atlantic ) beat ND, VT, Clemson, Miami, Michigan State, etc )
BC won 8 games in 2008 ( ACC Champion, Atlantic Div ) beat ND, VT, FSU, etc
BC won 9 games in 2009 as well. BC had some bad losses along the way from 2004 to 2009, but its really not accurate to state that they sucked from 2004 to 2009. Just sayin'

Odd that a BC football program that has showed extreme cowardice towards UConn was touting the brave deeds of a BC alum.

Two minutes, incorrect mascot.

I was at the BC-USC game tonight, USC's defense was T-E-R-R-I-B-L-E. Their front seven were atrocious. Their O-line was a bunch of garbage cans for the first three quarters. They made numerous boneheaded special teams plays when receiving punts and kickoffs and shot themselves in the foot field position wise. That was by no means the ninth-best team in the country. This same BC team got run out of the stadium last week by Pitt.

BC's qb and O-Line are good, but neither are all-world. They couldn't complete a pass to save their lives. If you contain their run game, they can't do anything.

Game wasn't even sold out - listed attendance was 41K, and a solid 15-20% were USC fans. Numerous tickets were available at the box office today, I got in for below 50% of face value.

I can't wait for this next year people keep posting about.

Where Boston College sucks and UConn doesn't.

You know things are bad when BC's biggest problem is they have too many seniors.

True I guess. I'd kill to have UConn suck enough to beat USC... or even Washington State.

Wait a week or two until they both go t-ts up against some dreck - you'll feel better.

Is that the week UConn loses to Temple or the week they lose to Tulane? Because I'm pretty sure once the conference season starts the worst teams they can lose to are Purdue and Wake Forest and that doesn't seem nearly as bad.
