Our Reactions to the Clemson Game Reactions

  • I am not the type to give big pats on the back after a loss, unless it’s one of those situations where the Eagles are huge underdogs and gave it a legitimately good try. There are elements of the Boston College football team that deserve credit, but I can’t sit here and tell you that I thought the Eagles played a good game. The defense kept them in it, which is exactly what we needed from them, but the offense could not get out of its own way and refused to prosper.
  • Tyler Murphy deserved a better outcome than what he got with two sure touchdowns getting dropped. He played hard.
  • The Eagles offensive line got shown up by the Clemson defense. It is not unexpected, but a true barometer of where they are. They can push NC State around, but not these guys.
  • Boston College did not need to win this game to make a bowl, and probably still will assuming that they take care of business against Wake Forest and Syracuse.
