No one enjoys piling on when things go wrong. But nonetheless, we’ve got to call out the ACC (plus Louisville) players who were counter-productive in helping their teams grab a victory this weekend. On the bright side for them, they can always get off this list next week. And for their sake, let’s hope they do.

ACC Goat of the Week, Week 3: Chase Rettig, QB/Boston College

Following a strong opening effort against Villanova, the production coming from BC’s passing game has gone down precipitously, with Saturday’s loss to USC being rock bottom. Chase Rettig didn’t throw any interceptions, but instead, just failed to move the ball at all against a tough Trojans defense. The senior was just 11-of-24 for 83 yards; this following a marginal yet understandable 124-yard performance last week. Rettig has talent surrounding him, and one of the conference’s top targets to throw to in Alex Amidon. The diminished numbers aren’t entirely his fault, but this team needs a lot more production from him if they hope to compete for a postseason berth this season. USC isn’t even the toughest opponent on the Eagles’ schedule either, so the hope is that he can sort things out before BC goes up against the likes of Florida State and Clemson over the next month of the season. If not, that hot start may very quickly end up a distant memory.

Honorable Mention:

Cody Journell, K/Virginia Tech (0/2 field goals, 1/2 extra points)

Trey Edmunds, RB/Virginia Tech (21 carries for 42 yards)

Brandon Connette, QB/Duke (137 total yards, 1 TD)

Duke Blue Devils rushing defense (344 yards allowed on the ground)
