From the Herald article, quoting writer Rich Thompson:
"Six points were squandered on two horrific plays in the kicking game. BC was on the Duke 25 with freshman kicker Colton Lichtenberg looking at a 42-yard field-goal attempt with the wind at his back. But the relay between long snapper Leonard Skubal and holder Bobby Swigert blew up resulting in a 6-yard loss and change of possession."
Sherm Alston muffed a punt return to give Duke 1st-and-10 at the BC 15, but the defense once again comes up with a huge stand. A goal line stand is culminated by Kevin Kavalec's touchdown on 4th Down at the 1, and the offense takes back over.
It's the end of the first quarter, and BC trails Duke, 7-0. Some early observations:
-BC is going to be run heavy. I'm sure you're all surprised.
-I like the use of Marcus Outlow off the bat. It's well-noted how much of a fan of his we are up here at BCI, so seeing him involved is a good thing.
-The offensive line is inconsistent at best right now. #72 nearly got Troy Flutie's first passing attempt blown up, resulting in him scrambling - which he lacks the speed to really do with regularity.
-Jeff Smith is executing the read option better, but his pass attempt didn't look good. Smith is now 2-6 on the season passing.
-The defense looks very good, but they were gashed on a run up the middle. Have to think they won't let too many of those up.
-Very good pursuit by the DBs and good tackling by the LBs.
According to his Twitter account, Jordan Gowins looks like he is ready to play on Saturday. Jon Hilliman is out with a foot injury, and Myles Willis is questionable, so this would give the Eagles three healthy running backs. Gowins would join Marcus Outlow and Tyler Rouse in the backfield.
Remember the edge of the coin speech from last year? Well consider this Edge of the Coin, 2.0.
This should remind you exactly what Steve Addazio does for this program. Singing the fight song is a symbol of coming together as a team to celebrate together as a family.
"We gotta cut it loose! GO MAKE PLAYS!" is just amazing.
