Boston College once was the nation's most consistent football program. From 2001 through 2009, the Eagles won at least eight games every season.
Tom O'Brien coached BC to three nine-win seasons before taking the North Carolina State job just before a 2006 bowl game in Charlotte.
Jeff Jagodzinski took over and coached BC to seasons of 11-3 and 9-5, and the Eagles made the ACC championship game both seasons. But Jagodzinski was fired for interviewing with the New York Jets, and Frank Spaziani was promoted to head coach.
Spaziani went 8-5, 7-6 and 4-8 his first three seasons, and now BC is 1-6. The Eagles host Maryland on Saturday, and another loss eliminates BC from bowl eligibility. Only a miraculous rally could save Spaziani, and that rally must start now.
