I could probably write a novel explaining the worst moments of the season, but here are a few things I still can't get out of my head.
DAVE SHINSKIE'S FIRST PLAY OF THE SEASON
What a joke this was. With some hope surrounding Uncle Dave heading into the season, he all but pissed it away with this play. After breaking the huddle, Shinskie lines up over the guard to receive the snap, then finally corrects himself only to drop back and throw a horrible interception. This was when I knew that it was not going to work with him under center considering he can't even line up under center.
THE MARYLAND LOSS
This loss still pisses me off. The coaching was horrid. The late game strategy couldn't have been worse. And then we can't get one yard on fourth down to give us a chance. Terrible.
RETTIG'S SPRAINED ANKLE VS ND
Down 21-0 early, Rettig, in his first start, was leading BC back. After a 58 yard touchdown pass and two field goals, we were by 8 in the second quarter. But then his ankle got caught underneath him and forced him to leave the game. He did not return and Marscovetra finished out the game. After struggling early, Chase seemed to settle into the game. I always wonder what he would have done against that sub-par ND defense if he didn't get hurt. I am not saying we would have won, but who knows?
KRAFT FIGHT HUNGER BOWL LOSS
Much like the Maryland loss, the coaching really screwed us. The defense played a terrific game and the offense wasted it. The offensive play calling was way too predictable, and Tranq would just do nothing to help out Rettig. I think this game hurts a lot because I know we could have and probably should have won, and if we did it would be a nice W against a highly ranked team that would get everyone excited for next year.
