Boston College offensive coordinator candidate list, hot board - Sports Illustrated Boston College Eagles News, Analysis and More
Who will replace Frank Cignetti Jr. as the Eagles' offensive coordinator?
People were calling for Whipple to replace Ryan Day but IMO, he would never allow an Addazio to override him so it never happened..While Cig has a great resume and many successes in the past, I do not understand why he gets off so blame-free because Phil's backup couldn't run the offense. It is rare when a team doesn't have injuries to a major player. That is something coaches understand and plan for. If your backup isn't able to run your offense, you train someone else to be the backup. I posted a while back that I was upset with AJ for telling us that Grosel was an adequate backup to Phil because of the players around him -- he had to be told that by coaches and folks around BC -- that is why we read this board -- he has contacts that most do not have -- yet Dennis couldn't run this offense -- but all the criticism was on Dennis -- not the coaches. With Phil's history of injuries, our coaching staff would be foolish if it isn't preparing someone to take over if he gets hurt again. That is the job of all the coaches, but particularly of the OC. I wish Cignetti the best, but he has big shoes to fill in Whipple. I remember there were many posters who wanted Whipple as a head coach back in the days just after Coach O'Brien left.
Stop it.Baer has a temper tantrum and quits about once a week because he is so much smarter than all of us and cannot stand our inadequacies. However, after a minute or two he comes back. I used to think he was actually one of our moderators causing extra posts because that is how guys like AJ get paid (based on activity), but now I think this is just one guy who really believes he knows more than everyone else -- that is why I now refer to him as "The Chosen One." Problem is that he is the one who chose himself -- kind of a legend in his own mind scenario. That is why he keeps preaching us to repent and reform our ways. I expect that eventually we may see as many as 40-50 Baers as he quits and rejoins.
I'm not here for"likes"LtheJust one more time I will try to reason with you. You may notice that Double Eagle has many posts with your points of view -- yet, he never attacks or criticizes the other party -- he just presents his case with his reasons. He doesn't call people names or criticize their beliefs. In fact, he is one of the most popular posters on this board. Maybe there is a lesson there . . . .

I'm not competing in a popularity contest.
Seriously don't care.
I don't even come to this sight for BC football news and opinion anymore because it turned 90 % negative . ( I do likeo read Mitch Wolfe's thoughtful analysis)
Lumpy and Double Eagle are the only readable fan comments.
I'm still here to stress how certain posters are hurting BC football with their posts.
Last week it looked like the negativism had toned down. I deleted my password and left. Mission accomplished or so I thought.
A few days later and your crew right back at it.
Came back i pains me to see C "fans" trash BC.
Just trying to help.
YOU critisize me saying I name call ?
Great Memory!Mike Yurcich was considered a hot property the last few years. He went from Okie State to Penn State last year, and when PSU's QB Clifford went down, their offense looked atrocious. Same thing as here with Cig. Yurcich was a guy that Hafley had connection to and some hoped he's land here. Gotta think Hafley's connections with Day will be important as a sounding board.
Then there's this: Dick Curl and Gary Tranquill are both 81. They could split the job and return to The Heights! Pretty sure Curl managed to help us lose to RUTGERS a few times.
I can't PP.BB2
I think a lot would change if you would attack us with actual proof and not by just saying that “You know by FACT” that recruits stayed away because of me/us but always go silent when you need to show the actual evidence.
That frankly makes you look foolish.
i would suggest you attack me/us but just use your opinion as a reason and not fiction facts.
