That was a big boy drive.

Also, boo fucking hoo McElroy. Whining that they threw a flag on the defensive PI, but praised them flagging for offensive PI a few plays earlier.

Exciting game, BC is a lot of fun to watch.

Jurkovec looks like the real deal. Will be fun to watch over the next few years.

Offensive line appears overrated, or is it just that they're used to run blocking?

For a great player, Hunter Long sure drops a lot of passes.

The OL is pure trash. Ruining everything. Jurk competed his ass off. D did their job.

BC again won the second half. I can’t believe that the OL forgot how to play. What’s the issue? The changing of positions? Move to zone blocking?

The O-line is too talented to play like that. Something is seriously wrong with the coaching here and the only negative to the staff so far. Not sure about Coach Applebaum.

Jurk must have broken like 20 tackles from unblocked rushers in the second half alone

I'm drunk as shit, but I'll take a 2-9 season with every loss like that one over a 6-5 Dazz season that's boring and stupid as fuck.

I was proud to be a BC fan today.
Yup. Haf nearly took down a top 12 team with Daz level talent. Daz coached team gets smoked yesterday. I love that they let Jurk sling the ball all game. It was our best chance of winning and nearly worked.

RBs really need an upgrade though. I don’t blame Haf for abandoning the run because the Bailey/Garwo/Levy group just isn’t very good, especially when you factor in the poor run blocking.

What is that? The guy takes the stupid sack and let's someone just take it out of his hands.

Well, good leg, but not accurate for Boumerhi.

Nice tease by acc network on that 4th down, Pickett didn't even get close to the yellow line, which it turns out was way off

Zay Flowers with someone that can actually throw the football downfield appears to be kind of good

6 catches for 162 yards, 3 touchdowns for Flowers.

19/35 for 358 with 3 TD’s and no picks for Jurk, who is starting to get hype from big time college/draft analysts. He looks like an NFL talent to me, just wait until he gets real experience under his belt.

Not only does Comcast not carry ACC network, the sports guide (button “C” on the remote) doesn’t currently have the score of the game that ended nearly 12 hours ago, just preview stats. I’d say Fuck Comcast, but there is already a thread here with that name.

That ones not on comcast, though I guess they could have gone and put all the scores in manually. That's on the stats and scores provider they use having network issues for 24+ hours and counting

Up to 31st in the AP poll and 30th in the coaches.

Considering this was supposed to be kind of a bridge year, it’s pretty exciting. Next week will be a tough game, but no crowd there will help.

Just watched the condensed game now. Good 3rd Down defense for the most part. 4th down not so much. Thanks Pitt for not going for 2

Good win against a decent team.

That Flowers TD would have been the play of the year if he'd managed to stay inbounds
