Boston College: Eagles dig themselves too big of a hole to get out of, lose 26-23 to Florida State

November 21, 2021

CHESTNUT HILL – Saturday was supposed to be the first step in a two-step process for Boston College. The Eagles were supposed to beat Florida State for a third straight win before upsetting Wake Forest next weekend and finishing the regular season with eight wins for the first time in over a decade. The only problem is, no one told Florida State. The Seminoles – a laughing stock earlier in…


Boston College preview: Florida State (4-6) @ Boston College (6-4)

November 20, 2021

PHOTO: ESPN.COM LINE: BC -2 (O/U 55) No three keys necessary again today. With BC looking like a completely different team since the return of Phil Jurkovec, there’s a reason the Eagles are favored in this game, even though it’s only by two points. Florida State has come out of the tail spin they were in earlier this season, but they still shouldn’t give the Eagles much trouble today. Between…


Boston College: Eagles looking forward to closing out the last two weeks of the regular season at home

November 17, 2021

There’s no place like home. For the Eagles, the road trips are finally done, at least until they head to a bowl game. Starting with Florida State this weekend and then the season finale against Wake Forest on November 20th, BC won’t have to leave the comfy confines of home again for the remainder of the regular season. It may not seem like a huge deal, but for a team…


Boston College: Eagles continue to display a remarkable amount of resilience with win over Georgia Tech

November 15, 2021

PHOTO: Brett Davis – USA Today Sports For the first time under coach Hafley, the Eagles will be going bowling. It may not seem like a giant feat, but considering the circumstances over the past two seasons, Hafley and his staff deserve the proper recognition for keeping this team together and righting the ship. BC teams in years past and especially recently would have probably folded the tents after four…


Boston College preview: Boston College (5-4) @ Georgia Tech (3-6)

November 13, 2021

PHOTO: ESPN.COM LINE: GT -1 (O/U 54) It seems as if all is right in BC world again. Jurkovec is back under center and the Eagles got back in the win column last weekend. With the fan base now having a completely different outlook on the rest of the season than it did just a week ago, Saturday’s game might be exactly the type of game everyone expected to see…


Boston College: As local playoffs continue, Eagles are keeping a close eye & reflected on their memories of high school football

November 12, 2021

While Boston College still has three regular season games remaining, the high school postseason is in full swing. Teams have already began clinching spots in the Final Four of their respective divisions and next weekend 32 teams across eight divisions will be playing for the right to compete for a state championship at Gillette Stadium. This week, I asked head coach Jeff Hafley and some of the players if they…


Boston College: With a surprise return from Jurkovec, Eagles win memorable red bandanna game over Virginia Tech

November 6, 2021

CHESTNUT HILL – The 2021 red bandanna game in honor of Welles Crowther will go down in history as one of the most memorable ones. Quarterback Phil Jurkovec made a surprise return 7.5 weeks after injuring his hand against UMass. Luke Kuechly and Matt Hasselbeck were in the building, the Crowther family and some of his former teammates were recognized and BC got a much needed 17-3 win over Virginia…

PHOTO: ESPN.COM LINE: VT -2.5 (O/U 48.5) Game is on national television, ESPN2 For the second straight week, I don’t really think “three keys” on offense or defense are necessary. This game speaks for itself. It’s not for the fans, it’s not for the players, it’s not for the coaches, it’s not for the alumni…it’s for Welles Crowther. Another red bandanna game is upon us and this one is about…


Boston College: Red Bandanna game comes at a perfect time for the Eagles

November 4, 2021

PHOTO: @BCfootball Friday night is about far more than ending a four game losing streak or trying to figure out who the quarterback should be for the remainder of the season. It’s for Welles Crowther. Virginia Tech visits for what should be an electric atmosphere and another red bandanna game. The jerseys already made one appearance for the UMass game on September 11th, but the official red bandanna game in…


Boston College: Eagles struggle in 21-6 loss to Syracuse

October 31, 2021

Photo courtesy of Isaiah Vazquez Boston College dropped their fourth straight game yesterday after losing 21-6 at Syracuse. The Eagles were leading 6-0 midway through the third quarter but the Orange scored 21 unanswered points to pull away and beat the struggling Eagles. Boston College started senior Dennis Grosel at quarterback but also played freshmen Emmett Morehead who actually got the majority of the snaps at practice this week. Grosel…
