I don’t think so. BC came out doing whatever they wanted on offense but turned the ball over twice in the redzone. This is all on them right Now.
Yeah. Road game against top 25 opponent. You ain’t winning if you have 2 red zone fumbles to start the game. And that 3rd turnover was just awful.

I also have zero confidence in the D tonight. They may not get more than a single stop in second half. Just a bad matchup for us.

Well let’s see what the staff has for adjustments. Offense came out moving the ball but D will need to get some stops. Need to stop them on first drive.

Also ... really bad decision to pooch kick after the score. Gave VT the ball on BCs side of the field and made it easy after stopping them for a few drives.

Tonight’s game feels like a personnel issue. I don’t think we have the speed to slow them down.

You're not going to win many games turning the ball over five times. Very disappointing loss.

Let's kick the crap out of Big Mike's George Tech next week!

Yup. Was always going to be a tough game but the turnovers didn’t give them a chance to win. Clean it up and smoke GT.

He has to isolate for 10 days. He’s out Saturday.
Unless it’s a false positive, not sure how that is determined though. One article implies one concurrent negative test is enough to deem it a false positive in the ACC.

Any idea how good their backup is? Put $10 on BC earlier in the week at +2000 and its off the board now at Twin River.
Another 5 star recruit. They don’t even need to throw much to blow us out but I’ll certainly take it.

They'll probably score more points with their defense than we will with our offense.

This team is going to be a lot of fun for the next 2+ years unless Jurk gets so good he leaves before that

Clemson got lucky with that flag. It’s still early, but BC is outplaying Clemson on their own turf. I don’t need this additional stress...

I’m optimistic that we’ll have him two more years. He might make it the NFL, but if he does, he’s going to be a guy in the mold of Gardner Minshew (savvy, and more elusive than he looks, but lacks the arm strength and athleticism of guys who go in the first round). Those guys tend to stay in school.

Edit: Minshew was a beast at Washington State, so the comparison is a compliment.

Was trying to keep perspective when they were up 7 but now I’m officially excited. Even with Lawrence out Clemson can score in the blink of an eye so BC needs to keep scoring too.
