This is what BC's regular season record over the last 3 seasons (up to this one) should be. Instead we are 24-8 in the regular season over that span. SEVEN utterly inexcusable losses in less than 3 years (I won't begrudge TOB the Thursday night loss in Blacksburg last year; not many teams win that game). Incredible.
If BC doesn't win the ACC, I hope Wake Forest does. Not only because they are an admirable program, a great story, and a fun team to watch; but also because they have more obstacles to success than BC does. The school is half the size of BC, similar academics, less history and tradition than BC does, football is not even the top dog sport at the school, they're in a worse recruiting situation than we are (more talent in North Carolina than New England but we face a lot less competition for keeping our local talent at home, whereas they have most of the ACC and half the SEC right in their backyard), etc. An ACC Championship for Wake would go a long way towards exposing TOB for what he is.
28-7 win tonight over Duke. Yeah, a win's a win I guess, but it's Duke. Not a lot you can really take there. I had to listen to the game on the radio, so I can't really break down the performance, but it sounded uninspired and according to those who were there or watched on TV that is exactly what it was.
Meanwhile, Wake Forest goes into Tallahassee and absolutely destroys FSU. Kind of puts our 5-point win into perspective.
