Overview-
This was supposed to be an improved offense under new offensive coordinator Kevin Rogers. With his experience coaching quarterbacks in the NFL, it was expected that Rogers would take sophomore QB Chase Rettig to the next level. That did not happen. Rettig lost plenty of his main weapons to injury, and did not have the reliable ground game that was to be counted on. Speaking of the ground game, more injuries decimated this group. Andre Williams was never completely healthy it seemed, and projected starter Montel Harris was lost for the season after only appearing in two games. Just an unlucky season for a team that already had limited amount of depth on the offensive side.

Biggest Surprise- Colin Larmond, Sophomore WR
After not playing a snap in 2010, Larmond came on strong to be the leading receiver for a group that lost starter Ifeanyi Momah to injury after the first week of the season. The junior wideout tailed off a bit towards the end of the year, but was a difference maker for a team that lacked weapons. Larmond finished 2011 with 528 yards and 3 TDs on 34 receptions.

Biggest Disappointment- Montel Harris, Senior RB
Just not the way that Harris wanted to go out after deciding to come back for his senior season. The only real plus for Harris was with the 135 yards he put up in only two games he was able to become the all-time leading rusher in BC history. That was, unfortunately, about the only thing that went right for Harris in his final collegiate season.

2012 Outlook-
The only skill position player that BC will lose is Harris. Nearly everyone else returns, but it will be up to Rettig and the offensive line to make improvements during the offseason if this team is to progress. We’ll have to wait and see if Coach Spaziani returns as that could affect the type of offensive system the Golden Eagles employ in 2012. It’s hard to imagine they will stray too far away from the pro-style set BC typically run which means RBs Andre Williams and Rolandan Finch should be nice fantasy options next year.
