Remember that loss to Miami? Boston College moved the ball pretty well, especially through the air, but couldn’t handle the Hurricanes’ team speed. Well, Miami’s loss to Kansas State – a mugging, plain and simple – has made the Eagles’ season-opening loss look even worse in hindsight. Hey, at least the Eagles beat Maine, meaning that with Massachusetts the worst team in the F.B.S., Boston College is better than at least two college football teams in New England. You know what stings? Pat Fitzgerald had a few nice things to say about B.C. earlier this week – "We’d better show better than we did on Saturday night, I promise you that. If not, we’re going to get our tails whooped." – and no one took him seriously. Really? You’re going to beat Vanderbilt and then lose to Boston College?

The sad thing? Nothing’s changed. The Eagles are still tumbling downwards. Given months and months to get mentally prepared for the opener, B.C. crumbled after Miami struck back in the second quarter. Spaziani’s honesty remains somewhat refreshing, but his team’s continued lack of success, on the other hand, remains as stale as it was a year ago.

If a spaceship came down and took me away tomorrow, it’s [still] their team. At the end of the year, they’re gonna look at the record, and it’s what they did. I think that’s a healthy way to approach it.

"The (BCS) system was (considered) so bad, yet college football was going like this in attendance, excitement," he said, raising his hand in an upward arc. "TV exposure went up and up, (but critics said), ‘It stinks! It stinks!' . I don't know. What's wrong with that?"

Should be much higher than 4.0: Things that are not even close to a "4" right now: Jessica Biel; the basketball position of Muggsy Bogues and the job status of the BC football coach. Whatever the hottest number for the hot-seat ranking gauge goes up to, that's where Spaziani's at entering the 2012 season. The Eagles had won at least eight games for eight years in a row till Spaziani was handed the job and they'd won 30 the previous three seasons. Since then, they've won eight, then seven and then four last year. He's also had significant staff chemistry problems. Among them, his confrontation with then-OC Kevin Rogers in a situation, where BC sources told me, the head man clearly crossed the line. None of that bodes well for a program not used to being at the bottom of its conference. Spaziani needs to win a lot more games this fall or else he'll be out of there by winter.

However, whether it was sustainable or not, there is no doubt that the program continues to take steps in the wrong direction under Spaziani. The team has gone from eight wins in his first year to seven wins in 2010 to just a 4-8 mark last season, and maybe worst of all, have lost their identity. For a team that has produced elite quarterbacks like Matt Ryan and the Hasselbeck brothers over the years, Boston College finished 100th in passing offense last year, and 112th nationally in scoring at just 18.2 points per game. Understand that it’s one thing to be bad. It’s quite another to be boring. And right now, Boston College is both.
