B.C. Gameday - Week 1
Hey...remember football? No? Well it's back!!
Where: Alumni Stadium - Chestnut Hill, MA
Who: Miami Hurricanes (0-0) vs Boston College Golden Eagles (0-0)
How: TV - ABC, ESPN2
4 storylines for UM in this game:
1. Is Stephen Morris any good?
2. Is the defense any better?
3. Will the 15 or so freshmen that get on the field perform when needed?
4. Are we really that much stronger from a year ago?
If the answer to most of these (if not all 4) is yes, it'll be a good day. If not...
But nevermind all that, the bottom line is football is back...and all is right with the world it seems.
I find I'm so excited, I can barely sit still or hold a thought in my head. I think it's the excitement only a Cane fan can feel, a Cane fan at the start of a long journey whose conclusion is uncertain.
I hope Miami runs a train on B.C. today.
I hope to see Miami go undefeated and win it's first ever ACC title.
I hope the feeling of victory is as it has been in my dreams.
Last time they met: November 25, 2011. B.C. won 24-17.
What people were saying during the subsequent meltdown:
Hard to argue with him. It was a fucked up end to a fucked up year. But just like Mike Leach says, "That was last fucking year!"Look, I don't care if you hire a motivational coach, best life coach, best motivational speaker, or have Micheal Irvin on the sidelines. A lot of these kids are just quitters. They thought they could just come to Miami and be Champions just because of the _ on the helmet. Nothing can change that. Also some of them came just to get their 40 time noticed by scouts, not to be apart of the team(family). They are still in the U family, but they are just the red headed step children. They never had their heart in this U.
We have to recruit talent, but most of all we have to recruit kids who will live and die for this _ we haven't done that. Physical stats are important, but heart should always be the number 1 evaluation.

What they're saying:
BC's Season As Super Mario Kart Courses:
Miami Hurricanes - Vanilla Lake 1. The third course in the Star Cup, Vanilla Lake is an ice-themed course that takes place on a frozen lake. The slippery ground makes it difficult to steer. If not careful, a player might drive into the water. Even though the course presents numerous challenges, Vanilla Lake 1 is a very short course, which may prove useful because I'm not sure how much of this game will actually be watchable.
I had a Sega Genesis, so I have no clue if this is a compliment or trash talk. It's also a pretty good thing for you guys that I didn't see this until Monday. If I had seen it any earlier, you all might have been subjected to a, "Miami's Season As Legend of Zelda Dungeons", post. You may yet still be subjected to such nonsense, but not until next season. Can't wait to compare Miami playing in Blacksburg to navigating through the Water Temple in Ocarina of Time.
1. In Miami's 6 losses last year, the defense created a combined 3 turnovers.
2. Howard Schnellenberger thinks that Al Golden just gets it.
3. Al Golden feels like Lt. Dan.

*See what I did here? It's called giving credit to people who did something I didn't create**.
**The Pensblog is the genesis for basically everything that I post.
1. Doug Flutie still sucks.
2. B.C. fans are starting to consider rooting against their team if it gets their coach fired.
3. B.C. hasn't scored more than 30 points against an FBS opponent since October 31, 2009.
Ouch. As embarrassing as that stat may be, they didn't need 30 points to beat us last year.

Boston College's entire team is injured, thats a shame... We'll be without the services of Seantrel Henderson, Curtis Porter, and Raphael Kirby. It could be alot worse for us, but it's not, so don't worry about it.
