Interesting stat: we’re 128th out of 130 in returning defensive production. If the offense can’t stay on the field we could be in for a looooong season.

Addazio, what a dude, he thinks the offensive line will be even better this year than it was last year....



I wasn't all that impressed with how the offensive line performed last year (strongly disagree with the coach that it was one of the best lines in the country) but I don't think Steve should be laying all of that on John Phillips and Ben Petrula thinking that it will be even better this year. I certainly hope he's right. I think A J Dillon will be outstanding this year. I expect this team will run, run, and run some more, but I'd argue that is more A J just making things happen.

The OL was pretty good last year except for the Clemson game which is understandable. The idiotic play-calling limits then from shining even more.

Trying to repeatedly run against 8 and 9 man fronts is incredibly dumb play calling and even more difficult to block. Even in spite of the 7 TEs we utilize on most plays.

I don't believe any of Daz's preseason positive talk anymore. I especially won't buy into his pet Offensive Line project. Since that is where he spends 99% of his time, all of his overly positive energy naturally funnels to that position group. And they're trying to block an AAC Defensive Line this past Spring and Summer, so yeah, not buying all the O line smoke. The best O Lineman I have seen playing for BC in the last 5 years is a rookie with the Falcons.

What would be interesting, (but we would never ever hear):
- How the Offense is getting better at the 2 minute drill
- How the D Backs are working on game like communication scenarios to close the experience gap
- How we've figured out some new approaches/drills with our kickers, and we haven't missed any FG's and XP's in practice
- How they've been experimenting with different formations on Offense because we see on film that DB's in space want nothing to do with tackling AJ Dillon, but LB's shedding missed TE blocks blow him up before he can get going

The weirdest part of the presser was him saying that once you get bowl eligible, getting to a championship speaks for itself. Does he not realize that half of FBS gets bowl eligibility while roughly 10% are competing for conference championships/BCS bowls in a given year? Does he think when he gets to 6 or 7 wins that puts the team on par with Clemson and Bama and it's just dumb luck who gets to 10-12 wins? No wonder this team goes 7-5 every year.

+5

Addazio may be a really nice guy, the players love him, he inspires his players to want to put in that extra effort to win, and he is much more enthusiastic with the media than Toby or Spaz ever were. All of that may be true. He puts on a proud face for the program. But as you have clearly explained, he is in way over his head. He does not appear to have the level of sophistication or college football intelligence that a Power-5 school requires in a head football coach. The words that come out of his mouth remind me of my middle school gym teacher.

He's the perfect head coach for a school like Temple. He should have stayed there. He does not belong here.

This has to be the oddest take I've seen in awhile.

Complain about him not addressing the WRs enough? Nope.
Complain about not addressing the DL enough? Nope.
Complain about only saying theres 2 DBs who are 6 feet and run a 4.5 40 time? Nope.

Let's attack the only thing that actually makes sense
-Where they replace Baker with Lindstrom (who was flat out a better player 2 years ago than skinny Baker was last year on his way out of football).
-Where they add Hayden Mahoney who along with John -Phillip's are top 5 pass blockers in the ACC.
-Where they announce Tyler Vrabel will start at LT (who no one is going to complain about)
-Where Petrula is the best returning RT in the conference
-Where they added depth from Rhode Islands best ever o lineman

Just a very odd target I guess. Just strange haha
