Deacon Dump 9/26: Gameday.

I'll be attending the Cleveland Cavs Wheelchair Charity bball game today, so I'm going to miss most of the game today, and I won't be around 360, so hopefully Jake and PPott can update from their phones. If you're watching, feel free to stop and comment and leave some updates. This should be a great game today and a big test for both teams. Have a great Saturday.

He played defense in college and has been predominately a defensive coach, leading him to predict what kind of offense is the most difficult to defend. Take the points and the UNDER, BC is also a solid defensive team, but won’t score much on the Demon Deacon Dee.

"Boston College has kind of had our number the past couple of years," coach Jim Grobe said. "(Last year’s defeat) was about as tough (of a loss) as we’ve had here. When it was crunch time, we didn’t make it happen."

BC’s offensive line must regroup against Wake Forest - Brockton, MA - The Enterprise
Wake Forest (2-1) does not have the same caliber athletes as Clemson, which should make things easier for BC’s offensive line, as well as freshmen quarterbacks Justin Tuggle and Dave Shinskie, who are again both expected to play. And the game is at Alumni Stadium, so there should be no problem hearing the calls made at the line of scrimmage the way there were in the din of Death Valley. But even if BC’s line — and offense as a whole — performs significantly better, it has a lot to prove after what happened against Clemson.
