Boston College redshirt senior QB Patrick Towles was woefully ineffective in Friday's 45-7 loss to FSU, completing 3-of-11 passes for 29 yards.

And 19 of those 29 yards came on one completion. This was the fourth time in 10 games that Towles has failed to pass for 100 yards and the second time in his last five games that he has thrown for fewer than 50. The 6-foot-5, 238-pound Kentucky transfer has tossed just one touchdown pass in his last four games.

USA Today's Dan Wolken relays that there is a "school of thought" at Boston College that HC Steve Addazio should be given at least one more year.

Wolken wrote that the thought is that "it might just be better from a timing perspective to give Addazio one more chance to turn it around and start fresh with a new athletics director next year." Regarding the latter portion of that comment, AD Brad Bates' contract is set to run out at the end of 2017 and, per Wolken, it is not expected to be renewed. This season, Addazio and the Eagles have limped out to a 3-4 record. They are currently working on a 12-game losing streak in conference play.

Boston College redshirt senior QB Patrick Towles completed 11-of-22 passes for 91 yards and a touchdown in Friday's 56-10 loss to Clemson.

No interceptions for Towles, but this was a downright dominant performance by the Clemson defense regardless. They held the 6-foot-5, 238-pound redshirt senior to just 4.1 YPA. Their work against the run was no less strong, as Boston College did not have a player surpass 50 yards on the ground. Syracuse's defense should allow Towles to surpass 100 yards passing next weekend, but there is absolutely no fantasy intrigue here.

Boston College redshirt senior QB Patrick Towles completed 14-of-25 passes for 234 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 35-3 win over Buffalo.

Towles tossed both of his touchdown passes in the second quarter. This was his third contest with a pair of scoring passes. The 6-foot-5, 238-pounder also has a pair of games under his belt in which he failed to throw for any touchdowns at all, though, and there is no fantasy intrigue here.

Boston College redshirt senior QB Patrick Towles made his first start for the team in a losing effort to Georgia Tech, completing 11 of 17 attempts for 137 yards and an interception.

Towles added another 27 yards and a touchdown on the ground, but it was not enough. Boston College led for most of the second half, and Towles will almost certainly hold on to the starting job moving forward. His longest completion went for 26 yards.

Boston College junior RB Jonathan Hilliman carried the ball 17 times for 102 yards and a touchdown in the school's 17-14 loss to Georgia Tech.

Hilliman reeled off a 73 yard run early in the third quarter, making a number of Yellow Jackets miss in the open field. The running back broke his foot last September and this was his return to the field. Hilliman is BC's lead ball carrier.

Former Kentucky OC Shannon Dawson hinted that Boston College redshirt senior QB Patrick Towles handicapped him as a coordinator.

Dawson moved on to Southern Miss this offseason, but offered what appeared to be a shot at former Kentucky QB Towles, who himself moved on from the Wildcats to eventually hook up with Boston College. Said Dawson, "Typically, if I have a good quarterback, I’m a pretty good coach. And typically, if I don’t, I’m not a very good coach." The 6-foot-5, 238-pound Towles responded on Twitter with a sad emoji. He would take that post down, later writing on the social media platform, "I love that guy, and he loves me. Words get twisted all the time." This all appears to be water under the bridge, now.

An anonymous ACC coach who spoke with Athlon Sports about Boston College noted that the transition from DC Don Brown to DC Jim Reid should be noticeable.

Noticeable not only because Brown -- who joined Michigan's staff over the winter -- is one of the best defensive minds in the game, but also because he and Reid run almost polar-opposite styles. One coach called Brown's BC defense last year "legit," at least in part because of their creative use of pressure. "Reid played a base defense when he was at Virginia," another explained, "and on third down you get maybe one or two different pressures, so it’s like one end of the spectrum to the other. It’ll be interesting to see what they do." As for the Eagles' offense, "[y]ou felt like from an offensive standpoint if you scored 14 points the game was over and it really was." Former Kentucky QB Patrick Towles transferred over in the offseason and should provide something vaguely resembling a semblance of a spark this coming season. Boston College kicks off against Georgia Tech in Ireland at 7:30 a.m. EST on September 3.

Boston College HC Steve Addazio said that sophomore G Chris Lindstrom is "going to be a first-rounder in a few years."

Lindstrom earned his first start against Northern Illinois on September 26. He didn't look back, punching the clock with eight consecutive starts after that contest. Addazio is encouraged by the fact that Lindstrom has managed to put on a fair bit of weight, moving from an OL-scrawny 265 pounds in 2015 to a much more stout 305 pounds this offseason. During high school, ESPN twice named a Boston All-State selection.

Boston College senior RB Myles Willis has been serving as a scout team stand-in for Georgia Tech junior QB Justin Thomas as the Eagles prep for their opener.

BC and Tech will square off in the Aer Lingus College Football Classic in Ireland on September 3 at 7:30 a.m. EST. Setting aside the international calamity set to unfold when that rock fight takes place, Willis played in a triple-option system with Marist School in Georgia before he joined the Eagles as part of the 2013 class and offers a unique insight into that notoriously difficult-to-prepare-for attack. At least with the scout team, he is serving as Justin Thomas' double. "I'll do anything to help this team win that game," he said. Last season, Willis rushed for 259 yards (3.9 YPC). He failed to score a touchdown in the campaign.

Boston College junior DE Harold Landry recorded the best run stop percentage (13.5 percent) among edge defenders in the nation last year.

He also had the fifth-best run-stopping grade among edge defenders. "He can shed blocks at the point of attack and he improved greatly as a pass rusher," wrote Pro Football Focus' Steve Palazzolo. "Landry has the skills to take yet another step as a pass rusher while providing excellent run defense on the edge." As a pass rusher last year, Landry finished with a +12.1 PFF grade, five sacks, 10 QB hits and 24 hurries on 317 rushes. Pro Football Focus sees him as the No. 49 player in college football.

Three-star 2017 WR Caleb Stoneburner committed to Boston College.

"I committed there because I just felt like they were my second family," Stoneburner said. "I really liked the campus and how they ran things down there. I also like how they see me in the future as an Eagle." Per Rivals' Josh Helmholdt, "Boston College sees him starting out as a big wide receiver, and then will monitor his growth and could move him to a flex tight end later in his career." Stoneburner measures out at 6-foot-5, 200 pounds heading into his senior season at Coffman High (Ohio).

Boston College HC Steve Addazio indicated that he wants the program to start winning this season.

"Will this be a group of guys that will win a bunch of games at BC? Absolutely. I just want it to be now," Addazio said. "I don’t want it to be two years from now, I want it to be now, and they want it to be now." Summer is certainly the time for optimism and ice cream, but the Eagles are in for a tough climb here. Continuity has been part of the problem -- current OC Scot Loeffler is the third person to take that position in Addazio's four years as head coach. Last season, they finished just 3-9 while fielding one of the worst offenses in the country. On the note of the offense, Addazio called the spring practices of junior QB Darius Wade and redshirt senior QB Patrick Towles (who transferred over from Kentucky this offseason) "phenomenal."

Boston College redshirt sophomore WR Troy Flutie has been suspended following his Saturday morning arrest for operating under the influence of alcohol.

Flutie -- the nephew of former BC QB Doug Flutie -- was arrested at 1:00 a.m. on Saturday morning after he hit a curb while driving. Per the Metrowest Daily News, the 6-foot, 182-pounder was arrested for "OUI, possession of an open container of liquor while driving, being a person under-21 in possession of liquor, and marked lanes violations." Boston College put out a statement following that messiness, saying, "Troy has been suspended from the football team by Coach Steve Addazio pending further investigation and faces the possibility of additional University sanctions pending the outcome of the court proceedings." He is set for arraignment Monday.
