The Boston College Eagles lost to the Wake Forest Demon Deacons Saturday, 28-14, in an Atlantic Coast Conference game at Groves Stadium. The loss was the Eagles' sixth in seven games, and has put head coach Frank Spaziani in the crosshairs of a lot of criticism.
According to the SB Nation blog BC Interruption, the Boston College athletic department, led by new athletic director Brad Bates, should fire Spaziani before next Saturday's contest against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.
But make no mistake, the energy and enthusiasm surrounding the program and this weekend's game is at a new recent low.
So why wait until Monday, November 26? Bates has now had a few weeks to assess the situation and crunch the numbers. The football program has gotten so bad that every day this drags on, the more fans and long-time season ticket holders are going to turn their backs on this program.
If Bates were to fire Spaziani now BC Interruption believes the message sent would be a clear one.
Let the rebuilding process begin now, so that we can take some joy in watching our football program take it on the chin against the 9-0 Irish with the knowledge and hope that better days are ahead.

The rest of the Eagles schedule features the Virginia Tech Hokies, Nov. 17, and N.C. State Wolfpack, Nov. 24.
