Zeller Gets The Jonas Treatment

Adam Lucas spotlights Tyler Zeller on Tar Heel Blue and passes along this little nugget concerning Zeller’s weight:

He spent the summer correcting some of the more physical details that didn’t benefit from an extended layoff. Zeller has gained 30 pounds of muscle since arriving in Chapel Hill in the summer of 2008, and he’s [...]

Davis: There Is No One Else

Butch Davis is going to ride the horses that brung him.

The starting lineup from Georgia Tech will be the same for Saturday’s home game against Virginia (0-3).

“We’re playing the best players that we’ve got,” Davis said. “The worst thing that we could do is try to do some kind of a magical hodge-podge.”

Gary Parrish Takes His Turn Beating The Sendek-NCSU Horse

I am not sure what to make of this both from a timing standpoint and the “isn’t this horse dead?” perspective.  The best that I can figure is Gary Parrish had lunch with Greg Doyel, asked him for a cheap way to get some quick hits on his column and Doyel told him to write [...]

Considering T.J. Yates

Plenty of heat to go around after the epic fail in Atlanta over the weekend.  Most of the ire has been directed at the offense and kicking game with a slowly dawning realization that the defense simply did not do enough to stop Georgia Tech on 3rd down.  As with any loss, sub-par performances are [...]

THF Blog Redesign

In case you did not notice.

I installed a new theme and upgraded the back end WordPress software. Unlike past themes this one is highly customizable with a user friendly interface, so much so that I might need an intervention to stop me from tinkering with the configuration until 3 AM.  If you happen upon [...]

ACC Week #4: Review

What we learned.

1. Virginia Tech is still the class of the ACC, Beamer Ball is alive and well in Blacksburg and someone up there found an offense.

2. The U is not back.  Sure Miami took some nice strides back towards the relevance of old but as far as the Canes being a national [...]

Georgia Tech 24 UNC 7

Well, now we know.

The quick take on this one is you cannot reasonably expect to win a game when the offense was as putrid as it was in this one. The Heels got a paltry 17 yards on the ground, only 137 yards in the air and turned it over three times.  UNC was [...]

Raycom Sports Featured Blogger

Raycom Sports tabbed me to be one of their featured bloggers for the pre-game show this week.  The pre-game show starts at 11:30 AM EDT and can be seen on some Raycom affiliates. If you are in ACC country but the pre-game show is not on your local station you can also watch it online [...]

#22 UNC at Georgia Tech

When: Saturday, September 26, 12:00 PM Where: Bobby Dodd Stadium, Atlanta, GA TV: Raycom Sports Records: UNC 3-0, 0-0 ACC, GT 2-1, 1-1 ACC

A lot of Coastal Division marbles on the line here.

The emerging pattern where UNC is concerned is this: UNC will win the game if their defense can handle the opposing [...]

ACC Week #4: Preview

If we were doing the whole ESPN hype machine marketing we could call it “Judgment Day” or “Week of Reckoning” or “Wow That Team Is Not Nearly As Good As We Thought It Was.” Plenty of meat on the ACC schedule which is automatically true based on the fact UVa has a bye.

Miami at [...]
