Final thoughts going into tomorrow's Boston College road game down in Tallahassee.
After both teams suffered stunning losses, the Eagles head down to Florida State for their annual matchup with the Seminoles. BC opens the game as 27.5 underdogs, and oddly this is a night time game, could there be an upset on Saturday?
Will BC's offensive line be able to protect Chase Rettig? Will the Eagles be able to tackle players that are much more talented than the players they faced last week? Will Chris Pantale play a role in this week's game, or will he be forced to hang back to help on the pass block? Can the Eagles hold the Seminoles to less than 500 yards of offense--hasn't happened since Maine. Does BC have any answer to E.J. Manuel?
Seriously, I am concerned with the way that the offensive line has played that Rettig will get hurt. Can he survive the game? BC AD Brad Bates will be on attendance, what will he think if he sees the Eagles steam rolled out of Doaks? BC football players are full of confidence, will that translate on the field?
What To Drink If Boston College Lays An Egg
Any and all beers. Tough game coming up, make sure that you stack your refrigerator with whatever helps you make it through those dark times. I will have a rack of Cisco cans next to my recliner, you know, just in case BC has trouble. So Eagles' fans find your closest "packie", load up on beer, margaritas, wine, hard liquor, malt beverages, or bourbon. Just make sure you don't run out.

Gametime Song of the Week
Creed- Higher. Random fact that I didn't know, the guitarist of this absolutely awful 00's band graduated from Florida State. Whenever I think of moments when rock lost it's way, I think of Scott Stapp singing pseudo religious crap, and point to it as the moment when I stopped listening to the radio. So the Eagles might get blown out this weekened, but at least a member of Creed didn't graduate from our alma mater.
BCI GPS. Where T'Internet At?
Brian -- Watching the game with the family. Please don't subjugate your poor daughter to this. L 42-10
Jeff -- Hoping for an upset down in Sakerlina country L 35-10
Conrad -- Probably not even watching the game, doing college things instead L 38-10
Grant -- Writing a note to Brad Bates reminding him to leave Jerry York alone L 35-10
A.J. -- Watching the game in a similar style to the ending of Clockwork Orange. Screaming at a picture of Frank Spaziani, hoping the cops won't get involved this time. L 28-3
Joe -- No prediction, but it's safe to say he probably picked against the Eagles.
