I think we’re probably going to lose to Clemson by multiple touchdowns but there’s still some suspense for me. Hafley is driven deep down in his core and he’s gotta want a second shot at Clemson after the playoff game last year. He might find some ways to make this exciting.

I feel like Herzlich is trying too hard to sound objective, and in trying to do that, he occasionally comes across as too unfair to BC.

This is where Hafley needs to contact ACC after game and let them have it at halftime??

That was not even close to targeting??? Runner dips head and you are at low and it was his shoulder and he was not going forward? F THAT REF!

Replay official make up call?

With Garwo out, Hafley can't sit Bailey down for a series, but he should be told about holding onto the ball.

Ball security is such an issue with this team. I think he's down, but not sure there is enough to overturn this.
