Well, that sucked. I've given it a few hours to wear off, but still... it stings. I can't really think coherently about the game just yet.
Our defense was amazing today - forcing three turnovers and shutting down a number of promising Georgia Tech possessions to keep us in the game. Unfortunately, our offense was incapable of sustaining drives long enough to spell the defense - and that spelled doom, as the defense was clearly too worn down at the end to make those last few stops.
Let's be honest - Crane sucked. He was all over the place, and made a number of really questionable decisions to go along with his inaccurate throws. And Steve Aponavicius's missed chip shot field goal at the end of the first half now looms large in my mind.
I guess if there's one thing I would have changed, it would be to keep pounding it on the ground when BC had the ball right after Georgia Tech's go-ahead touchdown. Chris Crane had one play where he rolled right and had a clear running lane, but he aired it out and overthrew Rich Gunnell to set up fourth down.
Josh Haden was injured in the second quarter and he was sorely missed for the rest of the game; inside handoffs to McCluskey on 3rd-and-5 weren't really ideal.
The team now has two weeks to lick their wounds and load up to face UCF. The offense obviously needs a lot of work. Let's hope they can figure it out, or it's gonna be a long year.
