With the 2015 football season over the BC Eagles can only be optimistic as the 2016 spring workouts are just around the corner. The Eagles finished a disappointing 3-9 and 0-8 in the ACC.In order for BC to be competitive the offense has to move the ball better. The Eagles had the best defense in the nation only to have one of the worst total offense with just over 3000 total yards both passing and rushing.
The Eagles started out the 2015 season with a bang enjoying a short lived undefeated season with wins over Maine and Howard. But Maine and Howard aren’t nearly as competitive as Miami and Clemson.
The Eagles suffered early season injuries to number one signal caller Darius Wade who went down with a knee injury after the third game.Wade was replaced by sopomore quarterback Truy Flutie. Flutie the nephew of former great Doug Flutie made a considerable impression on the coaching staff while filling in for Wade
The Eagles have only thirteen seniors on it’s 2016 roster. Notable returnee’s are qb Darius Wade, qb Jeff Smith, qb John Fadule running back Myles Willis who was also injured and junior receiver Thaddeus Smith.The Eagles will have fierce competition at quarterback with a healthy Wade returning.
Like any other sport the Eagles need to stay healthy in 2016 0-8 record within your conference is un acceptable. The Eagles are young and need to believe in themselves. Their defense should still be one of the top three in the country. But they need to score a lot more than 3000 total yards if their expected to even be competitive.
The Eagles announced this week that Kentucky quarterback Patrick Towles will transfer to BC this fall. Towles played in fourteen games for the Wildcats in 2014 but was benched for reasons unknown . The Eagles also announced that the team will lose three players on this years roster who elected to transfer to other schools.
