Once again, our lads efforted commendably, albeit falling short.
The silver lining in this defeat is that this game once again enables us to exercise our sense of loyalty to the members of the BC family, past and present, by saluting Coach Tom O’Brien, who has brought NC State to a 5-1 record in the ACC, in only his fourth season in Raleigh.
As the announcer on ESPN on line noted, Coach O’Brien did an outstanding job as Eagle Coach, leaving as the most winning football coach ever at the Heights: 75-45, with 8 straight winning seasons and 6 straight bowls.
Coach also showed impressive prescience by leaving Chestnut Hill before facing the inevitable Leahy-DeFilippo guillotine which has awaited nearly all football and basketball coaches at alma mater since 1996.
Now, valiantly on to Florida State!
