Twitter Reacts to Boston College Victory, Jeff Hafley's First Game as Head Coach

A.J. Black

Boston College defeated Duke 26-6 on Saturday at Wallace Wade stadium. It was a big moment for the program who not only earned Jeff Hafley his first ever head coaching win, but for the team itself. Hafley talked about what this game meant to the team after the game. "It's unbelievable. Everything these guys have been through--it's awesome. I'm so proud of them and everything they've sacrificed."

Various former players, people connected to Boston College, media members and others went to Twitter to congratulate the coach and his team. Here is a taste of some of the tweets:

Love seeing everyone get hyped up absout the game and it getting more National recognition, even if a lot of it is from BC guys lol.


Impressive win over Duke, the most impressive part about the game was the halftime adjustments. Texas State is a cupcake but they should still be taken seriously and I know Hafley will have them ready to go. The real test will be against North Carolina in a few weeks. The Tar Heels fans are already talking smack about BC's win over Duke, so it will be an interesting game. I wish BC would allow at least 20% capacity so I could go to the game.


Zay Flowers reminds me of a young Antonio Brown (minus the off the field stuff), very shifty, smart, great acceleration.


Gotta wonder if we’re the school who should be commenting on gambling lines...
