Boston College Postgame Quotes
Boston College vs. Virginia
November 20, 2010
Alumni Stadium, Chestnut Hill, Mass.
Head Coach Frank Spaziani:
“My hats are off to the Virginia players. They are well coached. They played hard. They had a good
scheme. Obviously you saw it went down to the wire. I’ve got to give our kids and our coaches a
tremendous amount of credit. It was a tough ball game and guys just keep stepping up, keep working hard
and that was the little edge at the end in one of those games that could have gone either way. We are very
happy to win it.”
How satisfying is it to get that sixth win and be bowl eligible?
“The players and myself, we didn’t start the year out to be 6-6. We certainly have higher aspirations every
year around here. Are we happy now to have won four games in a row? Absolutely. We have another
game to play. We move on to the next week and then we’ll figure it out at the end.”
On the defensive effort of the Eagles:
“Yards is a nice stat for everybody, but points is where it’s at.”
On the performance by true freshman running back Andre Williams:
“I said to Andre, and I said to a couple of the players, that’s why you keep working hard as a backup,
whether you are two or three or whatever you are on the depth chart. That’s why. Because you will be
called on and you don’t know when and you don’t know where. He was ready. You have to be ready for
the opportunity. We know he has some talent but he’s been working and we were glad to have him today.
On the performance of junior running back Montel Harris who became the second-leading career rusher
in Boston College history:
“I say it every week, Montel works hard. He’s a good back. He really is a good back.You have to be
exactly right with him and they had him contained a little bit in there but he was able to slither through.
He did a good job. We had planned to use Andre in there to give him some rest.”
On the performance of true freshman quarterback Chase Rettig:
“He made some nice plays. He did. He made a couple of nice throws. He managed the game correctly. He
certainly made a nice scramble for a big first down for us over there. There are a couple of passes that I
think he would like to have back that might have made it easier for us. He had Alex Amidon a couple of
times. But that’s football. There aren’t too many perfect people around.”
