Click over to their blog for good analysis and comments (well, most are good). Quote from Jackhole DeFilippo:
“We’re having fun now,” he said. “We’ve won before, but we had no fun. This is still a game, it’s not life and death. The fun is back in Boston College football. Tom did a wonderful job here, but nobody was having fun. The fun is back at Boston College.”
We’ll see how much “fun” they have with unproven “Jags” in 2 or 3 years. Without Tom O’Brien’s players (let’s see how well he identifies “diamonds in the rough” that meet BC’s academic requirements, with no D-1 head coaching experience). Hell, even next year will be interesting, without the all-ACC (and 1st round NFL pick) QB – who single-handedly pulled the Eagles from the fire of sure losses at VT and Clemson. It wasn’t “Jags” playing “not to lose” that prevented a 4-4 ACC season – it was Matt Ryan making a play out of nothing.
Remember when Chuck Amato was “fun”? Time will tell, BC nation. Time will tell.
