[[7-5]] 5-7

Probably a bit optimistic, but you never know with Jim Grobe.

My thoughts, though it looks like the WF QBs have thrown the ball around pretty well so far in practice. Still, WF lost 3 starters on Defense to the NFL this past season and 3 the year before and it is really hard for a school with academic standards like WF to replace that kind of talent.

My highest expectations (Above) are 10-2 Season...

Losing to VTech in the ACC Championship, and beating Auburn (?) in the Chick-Fil-A Bowl.

Lowest expectations are 7-5 season, missing the ACC Championship and probably winning the Champs Sports Bowl over Pitt or Notre Dame.

It's hard to predict anything at this point...Miami and UF will be the toughest games and either could go either way. I think winning 1 of the two will be enough to prove the team is on the right track under Fisher. I doubt we can win them both though. The Oklahoma game could go either way as well. I think Clemson, BC, and UNC all have a shot at beating us (1 of them prob will). Those games could go either way as they are usually pretty close.

CP7 for Heisman! :)

So he gave UNC two more wins and you gave NC State two more wins. How is his prediction more "homerish" than yours? You're basing your opinion on the hope that NC State's defense will get better, and he's basing his on the hope that UNC's offense will get better. UNC was only a couple of plays (and a QB) away from 10 wins last year, so I don't see how 10-2 is any more unrealistic than NC State going 7-5.

Also, the LSU game is in Atlanta, which is ACC country just as much as it is SEC country, if not more so. UNC won at VT on a Thursday night last year, and there is no way that crowd in Atlanta will be anymore hostile than that.

That's exactly what I was thinking. 8 wins in the past two years. With the defense they'll have, plus most of the offense is returning (Yates will be on short leash) with more experience, that should count for at least two more wins. Especially since they should have been FSU and NCSU last year (lost by 3 points or less).

UNC has more NFL ready talent than anyone in the ACC, so they should be contender for ACC championship.

I see UNC's Season playing out in 3 ways.....mostly hinging on the LSU game and the QB play

Best

LSU - W

GT - W

@RU - W

ECU - W

Clemson - W

@UVA - L

@MIA - W

Wm&Mary - W

@FSU - L

VT - W

@NCSU - W

@Duke - W

10-2 but for some reason we can't win in Charlottesville and I have no idea why. The FSU loss will be because of Ponder if anything else. The guy scares me some with how good he is and can be. This sneario has Yates not making many timely mistakes and the running game dictating the pace.

Middle of the Pack

LSU - L

GT - W

@RU - W

ECU - W

Clemson - W

@UVA - W

@MIA - L

Wm&Mary - W

@FSU - L

VT - L

@NCSU - W

@Duke - W

8-4. Not bad considering who we lost to, but it earns us another trip to Charlotte unfortunately. Here I think Yates stumbles, but not bad enough for Rener to come in.

Worse-case

LSU - W

GT - W

@RU - W

ECU - W

Clemson - W

@UVA - W

@MIA - W

Wm&Mary - W

@FSU - W

VT - W

@NCSU - L

@Duke - L

If the above happens, I will personally lobby for the firing of Butch

I hear the same argument EVVERY year from Carolina fans. "We SHOULD HAVE beaten team X...because we lost by 3-4 points." Do you know how many games are decided by 3 points in college football? State lost by 4 to USC and by 3 to FSU last year. You don't see me predicting that we beat FSU this year do you??

I'm not saying UNC can't win 10 games. I am just saying...make a realistic prediction rather than the prediction that you HOPE is going to happen. Its is great that UNC has a great defense, but they aren't the only team in the conference with NFL-ready talent. VT, Miami and GT ALL have NFL talent on their defense. The difference between them and UNC is that they also have NFL talent on their offense.

All I am saying is that going from 8-5 to 10-2 is a lot different than going from 5-7 to 7-5. Going 10-2 means that you are essentially a top 10 team and the best team in your conference. Unless Carolina holds every opponent it plays to under 20 points (hard to do in CFB) I don't see them winning more than 8 games. It is going to be especially difficult without your best interior lineman.

UNC is like 5-1 against ranked teams in the last two years, and the one loss was by 2 points. They have no problem getting up for the big games. Like I said before, it's the games they are supposed to win that they have trouble with, so it makes perfect sense to believe they can beat VT, Miami and LSU. And I will say it again, LSU is not as good as some of you think they are.

Right...but they are better than UNC, which is what matters.

Their offensive line goes:

6-6 324

6-6 315

6-5 280

6-4 300

6-4 300

If you guys don't have Marvin Austin for that game then they are going to be able to move your DL and control tempo.

Then when you look at their perimeter they have Reuben Randle (#1 player in the nation for 2009) and Terrance Tolliver a 6-5 junior who averaged 14 YPC last year.

On defense you have Patrick Peterson and Kelvin Sheppard who must be pretty damn good because they made first team SEC defensive team.

If their QB puts together a solid game then I just don't see this going Carolina's way because IDT there is any way that TJ Yates is going to move the ball on them. And if you throw Bryn Renner out there when Yates struggles then you essentially just fed him to the wolves after not starting him.

True but I would still kill to have a unquestionable champion every year. The champion should be decided on the field not by businessmen in suits....

This is why I do not watch BCS football or care about it..
