Who do they blame? Themselves.
Another day, another coach on the proverbial college football coaching hot seat out not named Frank Spaziani.
With the Frank Spaziani era of Boston College football mercifully coming to an end in two weeks' time, I thought it would be interesting (depressing?) to look back at the college football class of 2009.
New athletic director plus diminishing returns (nine wins in 2008, pre-Spaziani, followed by eight, seven, four and two under Spaz) typically equals new coach.
"Nobody sheds more blood, sweat, and tears on Saturday than I do. I know what our situation is, I know what I'm doing, I know the problems I have to work through. That's what I'm worried about."
There are plenty of things wrong with the Boston College football program, but I maintain that Spaz's inability to manage the roster of players he inherited from Jagodzinski -- a group of kids he helped recruit to the Heights as defensive coordinator
All aspects of the coach's performance -- from recruiting, roster management, staff management and in-game coaching -- have fallen woefully short of expectations.
