What about all the times the scheme worked this year and last year? I feel like they make this a stupid argument.

It works when we have a significant talent advantage (Maine, UMass, Cuse). In every other game this year, the D did not distinguish itself... except for NCS. NCS was the best performance that the D put up this year against a decent offensive team.

Again... I don't argue that Don's system works when you have better talent at DB and DL. I just don't think that will be realistically often enough to justify employing it.


Wait. what? The defense didn't distinguish itself against FSU and Clemson? Jesus.

Never go full retard.


HomoJS is correct about Clemson. He is wrong about FSU; I don't care how many yards they had.

Started out mostly ped state fans but BC filled in, probably assumed it was a rule across America that you could only tailgate in a city for 3 hours before a game. Also again Bates, if you give people more than 3 hours to tailgate, they get in on time. How was the BC bar? Didn't go cause there was no way in hell I was dropping $40 for 2 drink tickets.


I remember looking at my phone at one point quite a while after we got there and thinking "holy shit, kickoff isn't even for another 2 hours". Great time.

Epstein, not sure where you were sitting but in the 200s the BC fans were great, didn't get down in front'd once.

Ped St & Maryland fans deserve each other in the B1G.

Incredibly shitty way to end a good season.


I had some guy bitch at us for "yelling in his ear" when BC was on D, but he wasn't wearing colors of either school so not sure if he was a BC fan. Our section was overwhelmingly BC but there were a handful of PSU stragglers from Stubhub I guess, one of whom was sitting on the end of the aisle behind mine and took objection to my Sandusky comments as we were leaving. Me and him start jawing, my friend ushers me along, I get up a few steps and happen to look back just in time to see him sucker punch my friend. I jumped back down fists swinging and it all got broken up within seconds. Classy guy. Overall their fans are an embarrassment, I don't spend much time in Pennsylvania any more and the PSU fans I know personally mostly have some sense of perspective but holy shit a ton of these people just have no concept of shame.


This isn't a personal thing so please don't take it this way.

The PSU fans around me were fine aside from one or two jerks. Having said that, why are we dropping Sandusky comments? It's childish, classless and overall reflects really poorly on the fan base as a whole. It happened, it's done, but why a BC fan would ever find it in good taste to do that is beyond me. It reflects really poorly on the person and the fan base. One of the things I like about BC is we win and lose with class and dignity unlike so many awful fan bases, including Penn St.

Again, don't take it personally because I saw others doing it and found it equally as disgusting.

And how long have you been a member here?


This board is what it is ultimately but at a game I expect better from BC fans.

Again, lose with class, the team did that yesterday.


This. Emphatically.

If I had been in the U.S., I and my family would surely have been at the game. It is one thing for the immature to obsess about Sandusky here on this board -- as though that tragedy had been somehow inevitable at PSU and reflected on all their fans. I would have been embarrassed to hear such classless comments repeated in public at the game. What poor sportsmanship!


This is a unique situation.
Employees of the university knowingly covered up child abuse... the worst possible crime against humanity.
I have no problem reminding them of what they did until their mouth-breathing fan-base accepts what happened as opposed to rallying around it because they perceive themselves as true victims. Their reaction to the crisis is so disgusting; it is slap in the face to the REAL victims in this horrible tragedy.

* I was not at the game


This. It's not trying to find any excuse to talk shit to am opposing fan base. When more than a small minority of PSU fans own up to what happened and stop playing the victim card then we can all move on. Sadly if that hasn't happened by now it probably never will.


Again, it accomplished nothing and paints the fan base in a bad light. I was at the Ohio St/Penn St game soon after the story dropped and Ohio St fans had the common sense to tell their own fans who made any mention of this to knock it off.

Not a personal attack on either of you.


This is hilarious coming from eepstein. Evidently, it's okay to write that a BC player sucks a million times on a message board as eepstein does, making it easy for those players and their family members to read all about it, forever on the internet, but god forbid BC fans mock an institution and its fan base which turned the other cheek or downplayed the seriousness of child molestation.

Just to be clear, I'm not saying BC players can't be criticized on a message board. They get a free education, yada yada. I don't like to do it, but it's a free country. And I'm not encouraging the mocking of other schools, but if you are going to go the route of shitting on seemingly upstanding individuals who don't excel at a sport then you can't turn around and say mocking PSU is classless. Practice what you preach, eepstein and post with class.

Inexcusable.



FWIW, SI has Hackenberg as the first QB selected and #6 overall in their mock draft.

If you say he made him look like Tom Brady, you can go full circle and include both of HJS' weak bits.

Hackenberg declared for the draft. His stock has fallen since the Pinstripe Bowl, now projected as the #3 QB in the late 1st, early 2nd.

The worst part of the Spaz years was the very clear trend. 9 --> 7 --> 5 --> 2 and it was clear that things weren't getting any better. More and more it's starting to look the same for Daz. 7 --> 7 --> 4 --> ?

Regardless of the win total, this season feels much, much worse than last year. Last year we might've lost 8 games, but 5 of those games were decided by 3pts or less. They were at least close. This year is starting to feel like Spaz's 2-10 season even if we finish with 4 or even 5 wins.

I just remember every restaurant and bar within 2 miles of the Stadium having lines out the door. We finally found a Jamaican joint without a wait where we were able to snag some Red Stripes. Those Penn State fans absolutely invaded the Bronx that day.

I found that Jamaican joint too. Its almost like they didn't know a football game was scheduled that day. All I remember is how warm the beer was because didn't have time to cool down in the fridges.

The downfall was tailgating like we were going into Alumni and not a professional sports stadium that was selling alcohol.

Said some unsavory things to a Penn State fan in front of my parents that I shudder thinking about to this day.
