Is the offer all he was waiting for to put BC in the drivers seat ? From what I read Davis was deciding between Cincy and Memphis, so youd have to think Webb would still be an option (obviously unless the offer means Davis is a virtual lock and their would be no spot for Webb).

There is nothing like chasing off offensive players who can throw and catch so you can instill an offensive scheme based exclusively on running the ball... only to then fail at recruiting players who are skilled at running the ball.

1) Denial isn't just a river in egypt;
ii.) yes;
C.) it was already the worst recruiting class since maybe TOB's transition class and I only stop there because I have no idea who was in that class;
----) There were 6 players with BCS offers in the class before the firing (Boyle, Daniels, Montesero, Willis, Milano, Callinan). Two are definitely gone (montesero, Daniels) one is almost definitely gone (Boyle) and one was added before Addazio was hired (Montgomery). The kicker who committed to MSU, didn't have one, but MSU of course is one. So absent knowing who else signs (Cooper, Garcia, and Davis have BCS offers, Spearman and Rouse do not) Addazio inherited an awful class with 8 recruits who had options to go to other BCS schools and lost 3 (almost certainly 4) leaving a class with 4 recruits currently holding BCS offers.
5) in short, yes disaster.

Assign blame as you see appropriate.

my favorite part about this has been Montgomery committing when there was no coach. BC recruits better without a coach than with Spaz or Azzadio (so far)

"It's the nature of the beast these days the way [coaches] change schools. [Addazio] basically said you can go up to BC and play, but at some point this offense is going to go in another direction. What Tim is looking at is, 'Hey, I go up there and do the job and I'm playing for two years and all of a sudden he's got all the people he needs to run his offense and I'm sitting on the bench.'"


That is effing atrocious. I'm ready to fire his ass. So no matter how well you do, I am not going to utilize your skill, even if you are the next Dan Marino.

Yeah that jumped out at me too. Is he seriously saying that if Boyle comes to BC and wins the job for 2014 (certainly possible), he'll bench him for a dual threat guy in the future regardless of how Boyle is playing? That is the height of stupidity/stubbornness if right. If Boyle is good enough for Oregon's system, there's literally zero reason Daz shouldn't be able to bend his system to fit him.

Also, stupid roster management aside, it sounds like we're in for some pretty boring/uncreative football for the next few years. I'm all for running but it sounds like Daz still hasn't gotten on board with this whole notion of a forward pass.

Are we saying he should 1) cater his offense to a recruit for four years? or are we saying 2) he should be less clear to the recruit about what his offensive philosophy is?

I guess my question is, when do you figure out if Boyle is the next "Dan Marino?" I mean unless Chase transfers, he is clearly the starter in year one. Since not just the QB but many other positions change in a spread vs. pro set, what do you do in year 2? Have Boyle run in an offense he doesn't seem suited for or tailor an offense for him? What if he sucks then? Suntrup was a pretty highly rated pro style qb recruit and according to some posters is awful.

I love what Logan did with Ryan, but this is not an apt comparison to that. The apt comparison to that will be how Chase is used in 2013.

There is a reason, a very good reason why Daz can't bend his system. The reason is Daz is a shitty coach and a stupid man with no creativity.

Any college football coach who REFUSES to adjust his systems to accomidate the strengths of the best players that he has available to him, while minimizing their detractions, is a stubborn ass who is basically too stupid to have the authority to be coaching at the BCS level. The game has passed these old codgers by and they are of no further use. Fuck him.

He hasn't coached a game, but if this is true what Boyle is sayign about Daz, I am already done with him. Fuck you too Brad Bates for going cheap and hiring Daz and fuck you BOT for thinking you can get a good coach on the cheap. You all suck. :gun

As a coach at Boston College, you do NOT have the recruiting clout to select the BEST players in the country that you know will fit perfectly into the offensive and defensive systems that exist in your comfort zone. You don't. So your goal should be even simpler, recruit the absolute BEST players that are available REGARDLESS of whether or not you think they fit in your system.

When you get those best players, you adjust your system to maximize their strengths. Get out of your coaching comfort zone and accomadate your player's comfort zone in an effort to increase your chances of winning the fucking game. That is what a good coach at BC would do. If what Boyle is saying is true, it appears we might not have that in Daz. I'm not the least bit surprised about that, since the BOT didn't provide Brad Bates enough money to pay for a real coach who has the capacity to understand that you do whatever it takes to win. We are still stuck in the "..nice guy who likes his players..." crap.

It is pretty much the usual level of oversimplification. It may be right, but it's still taking a conclusion (addazio sucks) and throwing a bunch of semi connecting middle steps to get there. Since I don't like the hire and I don't want a spread at all, I tend to reach the same conclusion, but the reasoning is still horrible.

What Tim is looking at is, 'Hey, I go up there and do the job and I'm playing for two years and all of a sudden he's got all the people he needs to run his offense and I'm sitting on the bench.'"


That is effing atrocious. I'm ready to fire his ass. So no matter how well you do, I am not going to utilize your skill, even if you are the next Dan Marino.

Screw this shit, Addazio is a clown.


Yeah that jumped out at me too. Is he seriously saying that if Boyle comes to BC and wins the job for 2014 (certainly possible), he'll bench him for a dual threat guy in the future regardless of how Boyle is playing? That is the height of stupidity/stubbornness if right. If Boyle is good enough for Oregon's system, there's literally zero reason Daz shouldn't be able to bend his system to fit him.

Also, stupid roster management aside, it sounds like we're in for some pretty boring/uncreative football for the next few years. I'm all for running but it sounds like Daz still hasn't gotten on board with this whole notion of a forward pass.


Are we saying he should 1) cater his offense to a recruit for four years? or are we saying 2) he should be less clear to the recruit about what his offensive philosophy is?


As a coach at Boston College, you do NOT have the recruiting clout to select the BEST players in the country that you know will fit perfectly into the offensive and defensive systems that exist in your comfort zone. You don't. So your goal should be even simpler, recruit the absolute BEST players that are available REGARDLESS of whether or not you think they fit in your system.

When you get those best players, you adjust your system to maximize their strengths. Get out of your coaching comfort zone and accomadate your player's comfort zone in an effort to increase your chances of winning the fucking game. That is what a good coach at BC would do. If what Boyle is saying is true, it appears we might not have that in Daz. I'm not the least bit surprised about that, since the BOT didn't provide Brad Bates enough money to pay for a real coach who has the capacity to understand that you do whatever it takes to win. We are still stuck in the "..nice guy who likes his players..." crap.


Nospace oversimplifies pretty much everything to the point where it no longer is logical. But this is right on.


It is pretty much the usual level of oversimplification. It may be right, but it's still taking a conclusion (addazio sucks) and throwing a bunch of semi connecting middle steps to get there. Since I don't like the hire and I don't want a spread at all, I tend to reach the same conclusion, but the reasoning is still horrible.



I didn't like the hire, but I thought and have been vocal that I thought he could get BC back to TOB levels. So I am most certainly not working backwards from a conclusion that I just formed. The quote from the coach makes it pretty damn clear that Addazio is discouraging pocket passers from coming to the school that has developed so many of them in the past 20 years. That wouldn't bother me whatsover if he remotely came close to landing a recruit of Boyle's caliber that was a dual threat prior to making that call. But he hasn't.

My problem isn't with the system, but the reluctant stubbornness to stick to it before you have shown a modicum of ability to recruit the players for it.
