Despite loss to USC, Boston College showing progress (The Boston Globe)
This game was a tale of two coaches. Boston College’s Steve Addazio is trying to rebuild a program. Southern California’s Lane Kiffin is trying to prevent one from falling apart in his hands. Both got what they needed on Saturday.

“We are not a very deep team to begin with and we are pretty banged up right now,” Addazio said. “I know better than to go back and be stubborn and go (out) there have a bloodbath (practice) on Monday. I know that’s not the answer and it wasn’t like we had a lack of effort. If I thought that was the case, then (a bloodbath is) what we would do. The kids need some time off after a long trip. “We’ll come in watch the tape and make all the mental corrections and put that game to bed. We’ll give them some time to let the bodies heal, then start game-planning for Florida State.”

ACC college football weekend rewind: Week 3 (ESPN ACC Blog)
The bad: Riding the high of a two-game winning streak to start the season, Boston College was thinking upset when it headed west to take on a struggling USC team. The Eagles might be improved under new coach Steve Addazio, but they're not quite ready to play with the big boys. The Trojans' languishing offense found plenty of room to work in a 35-7 win, and BC's Chase Rettig completed just 11 of 24 passes in a homecoming game for the Southern California native.

No one enjoys piling on when things go wrong. But nonetheless, we’ve got to call out the ACC (plus Louisville) players who were counter-productive in helping their teams grab a victory this weekend.

12. Boston College (2-1, 1-0 ACC, last week: 11). Heather thought the Eagles had a chance to pull the upset, but Lane Kiffin had everybody fooled. BC was unable to keep up with supremely talented USC and got beat soundly. The Eagles are off this week before facing another tough opponent -- Florida State on Sept. 28.
