Last season, BC rode a second half surge to the Pinstripe Bowl. After adding several new coaches and returning plenty of experience, the Eagles enter spring practice with an optimism unrivaled over the past few years.
Running back Jonathan Hilliman became the second prominent Eagle to transfer for his final year of eligibility, joining quarterback Darius Wade.
No one should be surprised that BC’s football season turned out this way. But no one could’ve expected how it happened.
One week after putting up 76 points against Howard, Jon Hilliman and the Eagles disappeared on the offensive side of the ball in a 14-0 shutout by the Seminoles. To make matters worse for BC, Darius Wade will miss the remainder of the season with a broken left ankle.
BC tiptoed with danger in the fourth quarter all season. This time will hurt the most.
Many plays could have clinched a win for the Eagles in New York. Only one, however, will be remembered.
“Any time you have a quarterback who throws four interceptions, you’re not going to have a chance to win.” – Murphy on BC’s loss to Louisville.
Sherman Alston and Jon Hilliman weren’t supposed to be making big plays against No. 9 USC.
