NC State - fsu

I love backhanded compliments from UNC fans. You guys are more passive aggressive than Barbara Walters when she's on her period. Just suck it up and be happy that this sets up for a great matchup when we come to Kenan. You guys just continue to fail to recognize that the wins yesterday by our two programs (against the two premier divisional opponents) leaves open the possibility that there could be an NCSU/UNC ACC Championship game.

Is the chance slim? Yeah...because we still have to play Clemson at Clemson. But you guys have a cake schedule and could actually make it there (yeah...backhanded compliment).

On a more Pack-centered note...

The secondary finally came to play today. The reason that you saw FSU held to 16 points is because the DBs finally played within the scheme. There was nothing open downfield with Amerson, Wolff and the rest actually doing their jobs instead of hunting for picks.

We physically dominated FSU in the 2nd half so this wasn't about FSU crapping the bed etc...it was about a pissed off NC State team from the week before coming to play with a chip on their shoulder bc they knew tonight was make or break.

On the TOB subject....

I've said it before and I'll say it again...if the guy wins 9 games a year he is going to stick around at a North Carolina football program (that's UNC included). There is not a program in this state that will EVER contend for a national title as long as the best players continue to leave for the SEC. For some reason when Butch Davis went to UNC you guys had that delusion...it's not going to happen when the teams in the SEC have more talent than your starters on their 2nd string. You saw a prime example just this year when Todd Gurley, Keith Marshall, Jonathan Bullard, DJ Humphries, Germone Hopper, Nick Dawson ALL left the state of North Carolina.

So as far as TOB is concerned...yeah if we beat UNC this year then I'd say he probably sticks around because other than Clemson, the rest of the schedule is made up of teams I think we should beat (Maryland, UVA, Wake, BC). So if you beat those teams you SHOULD beat and you beat your rival...even if you lose to Clemson you win 9 games in the regular season...typically good enough to challenge for the ACC title or at least a high profile bowl.

Is TOB a likeable coach? No. Is he a player's coach to the degree Fedora or BD is? No. But he has an 8-4 record against ranked opponents, an undefeated record against our biggest rival (and a winning record against our in-state rivals overall), and two wins over top 10 teams in the last two years. If the guy could recruit elite talent (which it doesn't look like any coach in NC can do) then he'd be a great coach. So long story short...if we win at least 8 games this year he's staying around. If we crap the bed against the rest of our schedule then there will be a change.

Great win by NCSU. Didn't think they had it in them honestly. I thought FSU was gonna roll through the season.

Are they even eligible for the ACC Championship game?

I love how Fedora is a huge troll and still wants to win the coastal division though.

That was pretty much the same viewing experience as watching us give it away to Atlanta.
