Boston College quarterback seeks school with lower standards

June 2, 2009

It’s not safe to say that the Eagles won’t be any good this year. But losing their only quarterback with any legit playing time is not going to help:

Boston College quarterback Dominique Davis has decided to transfer after he was suspended by the university for academic reasons, the school announced Tuesday.

The move leaves the Eagles without any quarterbacks who have thrown a pass at the Football Bowl Subdivision level. Both Justin Tuggle, a redshirt freshman, and Codi Boek, a junior who transferred last year from American River Junior College after starting his career in 2006 at Idaho State, were competing with Davis for the starting job this spring.

To be fair, American River Junior College is the class of Division VIII football.

There’s no word on where exactly Davis is headed. Probably somewhere like FSU or Ohio State, where you pretty much need to color inside the lines to get in.

But for now, we can sit back and enjoy our biggest Atlantic Division rival* tear themselves apart deciding between two not-very-talented quarterbacks. A tough position to be in that is usually reserved for the Cleveland Browns.

Have fun in the Humanitarian Bowl, ya douches.

*(right? we’re in the Coastal? meh.)

VT vs BC, take two…

December 1, 2007

R-E-V-E-N-G-E…find out what it means to me. Not quite, but you get the idea – ask and ye shall receive. The fans wanted it and they got it: the grudge match. The winner take all ACC title game featuring the Hokies of Virginia Tech and the Eagles of Boston College. Take your pick…Vegas has the Hokies at -4

Who will score more?

Certainly not Matt Ryan…but seriously – anyone get that krazy feeling this could be an offensive shootout? The O/U is 46, not too shabby. Everyone keeps yappin’ about the Hokies defense (and for good reason) wanting to come out firing, but we should all realize now we’re up against one King Ryan, who feasts in his own glory, while also throwing it up on the sidelines (bet his girl still kissed him that night). Regardless, both teams have good offenses and there could be punch after punch before it’s all said and done. Tyrod is something new to BC and Sean and the line is much different. Then again, Ryan and his underlings (AKA all of his running backs) love to put together sneaky little passes. BOre is slipping through the cracks and creases of the new OLine and the E-Money and company have never been playing stronger. Either way, these two offenses are capable of going off at any moment. Call me krazy, but this is a push.

Where it’s all won

Defense wins championships. If this holds true, then the boys in O&M will spill last blood in this one. The unit is #2 in the country in scoring defense and #4 in total defense (YPG). Something else to figure into the equation: some guy named Vince Hall is back. Think BC will notice?

Likewise, BC is no slouch themselves, coming in at #19 in scoring defense and #26 in total defense, which includes the 2nd best rush defense in the country. Lest we forget that this defense hasn’t played anyone that great outside of Clemson and VT. Might we also forget that Ore was able to muster about nearly 100 on this bunch with injuries and that piss-poor OLine of the past. So much for that shootout, right? Still possible, just not probable. Too much talent here. Ain’t no question about it. Advantage to the Hokies.

If there ever was an X-factor, this is it

Trivia question of the night: Who was the recent Hokie to break the all-time record in the ACC for punt return yards? If you said Eddie Royal, then kudos. If you got it wrong, then may God have mercy on your soul (he is a Hokie, you know…ask Lee Corso). Anyway, think he might make a difference in the game? You can certainly believe we’ll need ole’ Jud due to our frequent red-zone falters. What else is there? Could we see a blocked kick? Who knows, its the ACC title game – anything can happen. BC has no answer for our special team; it’s not even close. Give this one, and then some, to the Hokies.

Leave it all out on the gridiron, gentlemen. This is the second time in three years the Hokies have been in the ACC title game since it was put into place. It’s beginning to feel like a second home! Either way, we should like the Hokeis chances here. Not only will they cover, but they will cover big.

VT 38, BC 17

VT vs. Worst #2 Ever

October 25, 2007

Finally, the time is upon us. It’s Thursday, and it’s about to get loud. Not too much to say right now, so let’s just roll with the predictions:

CGally: 24 – 21
Bbull: 21 – 17
DiP: 19 – 17
Steve: 31 – 23
Tim: 20 – 14
Gway: 17 – 10*
Lady Gally: 24 – 17

* Insert crazy detailed Barry-like prediction.

This is THE game. This is why you went to Virginia Tech, and this is why you decided to stay that extra fall semester.

So let’s get pumped:
