ACC Football Week #5: Review

On Friday I asked the question of whether the ACC is close to be declared irrelevant as far as football goes.  Much of that was based on the fact the ACC was 1-5 against ranked non-conference teams coming into the weekend the lone win being the Miami drubbing of Texas A&M.  This weekend has been [...]

Virginia Tech 17 UNC 10

In three of the four losses UNC has been in position to win the game or a handful of mistakes away from having a shot at walking out with a victory.  Two of those games have been in exceptionally hostile environments and despite the huge problems we saw last week against a South Florida team [...]

UNC at Virginia Tech

Where: Lane Stadium, Blacksburg, VA When: Saturday, September 29th, 12:00 PM TV: None. Raycom/LF Regional; ESPN360 on the web Records: UNC 1-3, 0-1 ACC; VPI 3-1; 0-0 ACC

I find it interesting the Hokies have yet to play an ACC opponent. I guess UNC qualifies as a good opener for VT.

As far as what [...]

ACC Football Week #5: Preview

For the record when I wrote the above title I got as far as “ACC Basketbal” before realizing he tmistake. What does that say about the state of football in the ACC when thoughts turn to basketball before the calendar says October? I think the more appropriate question to ask of the ACC at this [...]

Another Take on UNC’s Possible Violation

Gary Parrish at CBS Sportsline commented last week on the article in the Charlotte Observer that while UNC did probably break a rule when Raymond Felton talked to Iman Shumpert on his visit, the rule itself is just another in a long line of illogical NCAA rules:

Tar Heel Players Not Quite Getting It Yet

One of the problems a coach has in taking over a program is that you have to teach players how to pick up a different system, some of which has to do with practice and preparation.   There is also a fair amount of “undoing” from the previous coaching staff in how players approach games and [...]

Obligatory Frank Beamer Screwed UNC Article

I wonder if during the last UNC home game the local media writers go together and drew straws to see who would be saddled with writing about the impact of Frank Beamer having reneged on his verbal agreement to coach at UNC in 2000 and head back to Blacksburg. The holder of the short straw [...]

Clamoring for Ryan Houston

So with the Heels season beginning to stumble into a stretch of games that will likely be tantamount to some form of torture and a running game that is ineffective enough to endanger the passing game it is no wonder that the first guy who shows anything with the ball on the ground is going [...]

ACC Football Week #4: Review

For whatever reason this struck me as an odd day, actually an odd few days going back to Thursday with Miami winning over Texas A&M. College football is a funny thing. We enter the season having endured the silly period in the media where analysis and predictions flow like honey. Preseason rankings and media polls [...]
