Speaking of the O-line...I like this group a LOT. James Hurst, in particular, is playing way beyond his experience level. That kid is living up to all 5 of those stars by his name, and then some.

Alright, its not like I am gonna change you guy's 'subjective' minds, so lets forget this debate because its Sunday and not Saturday, so lets just pray for a good panthers showing.
Interesting, you want to put records on the QBs? Ok then let's do it. T.J. Yates put up 400 yards on LSU and Patrick Peterson. Russel Wilson threw the game away against Virginia Tech and barely got your boys by UCF. So until T.J. throws a multiple picks that take the Heels out of contention for a win this year...I'll take him.
You forget football is a "What have you done for me lately?" sport...and here lately T.J. Yates is on fire so I'll take my chances with him over a guy who is playing good enough to be above average at best. Should the UNC defense have remembered how to tackle the first two weeks, Carolina would be an easy 4-0. Don't get it twisted. Yates carried the team and kept them in games the first two weeks when the run game was non-existent.

Even if we completely lose our football program we'd still be better than App State.
Looks like you may actually get to test your dumb hypothesis.

UNC is screwed. The NCAA is going to make us an example. We are so fuged
They aren't going to ban our football program, but I would expect some kind of discipline that is huge. Probably a USC style penalty plus a fine.

I'm hoping that they avoid future bowl bans, but after seeing what they did to USC. . . let me just say I'm hoping more 2007 Florida State over Reggie Bush.

Nothing at all "retarded" about a QB with a rating of 152.1 being better than one who has a rating of 140.3 and Yates doesn't have his top threat.
if we go by ratings tyrod taylor was the top qb in the acc last year and so far this year is again the best in the acc. as a hokie fan i admit that he isnt in the top 2 likely 3rd at best as a passer, but hey the passer rating people love to throw out there is the best. best passer rating doesnt equal best qb.
as for the subject at hand, hate that it happened to an acc school. that said, examples have been made with usc, and if the ncaa wants really strike fear in the rest of the programs, dont make usc the lone example. punish everyone hard so no one wants to ever get caught with a staff member doing this. SMU levels, doubtful but usc level (aka 1 or 2 years) should be the punishment (unless its alot worse than it currently seams).
as for those suggesting that butch must know everything, get a clue. the players cannot be watched by the coach 24/7. he doesnt know everything that the kids do. and if blake was as compotent as it sounds (at keeping this under the radar for a while), then its no surprise that butch didnt know this was going on. that said player have buddies that likely knew and kept their mouths shut instead of nipping this poo in the bud. unfortunate that 2 to 5 (overestimate on my part with all the crazy susppensions handed out) bad apples can kill the program for a few years.
