Is this serious? You can’t yada-yada-yada passed new staff during a pandemic and the hardest schedule since Henning.

Last year, with a generational RB, we went 6-6 on one of the easiest schedules ever... it had 3 automatic OOC wins plus the most talent-depleted ACC schedule (sans Clemson).

This year, we are completely devoid of defensive talent. Can you even name the starters on the DL? Offensively, if we were running the same system and had AB, I’d agree we would be better. But, an entirely new system (with no Spring to install it) combined with a no-snaps signal caller removes all previous benefits. And the “should be better from more experience” is the worst argument consider every team can say the same.

4-8, 5-7, 4-7 and 4-7... those are the records in years where the schedule-maker didn’t start us off with a minimum of 3 layup Ws. We’ll be lucky to get a 4th win this year regardless of who is under center or coaching on the sidelines.

I will take the over on your O/U 4 wins. Just remember a high school gym teacher from CT was able to go .500 in the ACC 5 out of 7 years.

OL will be great, RB will be strong and arguably more effective with a balanced offense, WRs will be best we’ve had in a long time, Hunter long should have a huge season at TE. Defense will be much improved with the transfer from buffalo coming in on the DL and the Maryland transfer on the backend along with better coaching for the secondary. LBs should be more effective as well if they can stay healthy.

QB is obviously the question mark but I trust the staff to put the best guy out and use him a way that best fits his skills. This alone would be a huge difference from The previous 7 years.

Did we even have an offensive system under Daz? RB's don't really matter, and no one could name the starters on the DL last year either. Can't say that we really lost any truly relevant talent on D. Add back in McDuffie, Gill, (hopefully) Jurk, Jones, Onwuka, and a competent coach, and I'd be shocked if there wasn't some level of improvement. Maybe it takes a month of growing pains to figure it out, but it's a more talented roster, and our peer ACC schools are just as mediocre as we are. I say we go around .500 (which is more of an accomplishment than last year).

pretty sure he was all-conference last year ; I expect he will be an upgrade at DT.

The ACC far more cares about what ND has to say rather than BC, unfortunately. But I guess thats what you get for putting the product we put on the field/court the last decade.

This is the dumbest conversation ever.

First, if all it took for the ACC to complete the full acquisition of ND was the sacrifice of a single player, Swofford would get dressed up as the witch doctor from Temple of Doom chanting Kalimar while sinking his fist into the chest of Trevor Lawrence. Jurkovec is not a thought in the minds of anyone beyond the 6 posters on this board.

Second, I have no problem ND having a policy against releasing kids without sitting (especially when they are then playing them the same season). Those are the rules. And, so long as they are doing them consistently, why do we give a shit? If it’s wildly cruel to the kid, then use it as a tool to recruit against ND. If Georgia doesn’t do it, then we should’ve stolen a QB from there instead (if the focus was this year).

Third, this year is shot to hell. Jurk doesn’t change the season. We won’t be fighting for 3rd place in the Atlantic no matter who was taking the reigns. This was always about whether we had enough cupcakes to make it to 6-6. The schedule released yesterday foreclosed the possibility of a winning season with or without a QB.

Finally, given the above, and given the fact that Jurkovec left South Bend with shattered confidence and no love for the game, he needs a mental break for the season (instead of burning a year of eligibility getting his ass kicked and questioning whether he was just overhyped). For BC, what’s wrong with giving Sam Johnson a shot or Fordham Prep’s GOAT? You know as much about their abilities as you do Jurk’s. But, because of Farrell’s hip fluidity rating system, here you guys are treating Tommy Rees’ cast-off as the savior of the program. It’s pathetic.


I think a good Jurk would solve a lot of your problems, HJS. Of course we'll have to consult his astrological chart, interview his high school guidance counselor, and break into his septic tank to do stool analysis before we'll know if he's truly in the correct state of mind for the whole affair.


This is a rare good post for you, and I think it deserves acknowledgment.

OLines win college football games and BC has a very good one. With the assumption that Jurkovec plays, this team could win 6-7 games with this schedule.

And Jesus Christ, shut the fuck up about how tough this schedule is. Adding ACC games is probably a bonus. GT and Duke are terrible and BC lost to Kansas last year. The ACC has one unbeatable team, and a bunch of mediocre shit that BC can, but won't consistently, beat if they have a QB.

If Grosel starts, they win 2 or 3 games.

As I understand it, Jurk gets a max of three years regardless. So if he doesn’t get the waiver he loses a year and only has two years left.


Correct


So hjs needs to reassess his argument. Any reasonable BC fan would want this guy to have three years of playing time, not two.

with Jurkovec I think the team COULD win 8 or 9 games but WOULD probably realistically only win six or seven. Really the only game completely out of reach is Clemson with UNC probably being a loss as well. The rest of the ACC is beatable although obviously you don't win every game you should. otherwise, I agree with what you wrote.

if there's one thing I could bet on (even in this crazy 2020) is that HomoJS will definitely change his argument and then tell us how he's been right from the beginning.

I'm still waiting for the year UNC is actually good. Stop. And Jesus with Louisville too.

Media always blows smoke up their a***s. Let them both prove it on the field.

It has to be almost a given that players won't be in as good physical shape going into this season. A team that already has a strong offensive line has to see a bigger advantage from that. The defense is really concerning, especially as you would think it's going to be harder to build a knowledge base to allow scheming around their deficiencies.

BC's got to show the players and coaches, though, that it stands up for them. That's why they should be fighting hard for Jurkovec, and shouldn't let any NCAA politics stop them from following the motto on Jurkovec and the team's behalf that "information wants to be free".

BCDEE is the BC Media Blog Queen.

We had the usual lazy BC blog owners & posters asleep at the wheel when BCDEE embarrassed these guys with her #FREEJURK blitz and none had the balls to credit her including BC and Baum.

BC not getting a waiver after ND got into the schedule makes us the Fredo di tutti Fredos.

Guess what? BC deserved it for hiring Spaz, Donahue, Dazhole!
