I'm saying most who do not already have that mindset do not hold onto to it for very long .Right now is the key.it is hot right now.Things will cool and most will not hold onto this thing and will move on. Only those who already lean to the negative will hold on for a long time.
You'll definitely get the best effort from everyone.
I still disagree that Temple is good or even decent though. Houston has finally put it together and they're looking more like the team people though they'd be at the beginning of the year and Temple wasn't even competitive. They haven't really beaten anyone at all this year. If I could place a parlay bet on Temple to lose their next 5 games, I would.
Honestly, ECU SHOULD roll thorugh Temple and even Cincy. Cincy's defense is really bad. You won't if you play like you did last night, but you have the talent. Just need to get out of the funk you've been in the last few weeks.
One thing that surprised me last night during the game was when they were talking about Colorado State. I didn't know that that Colorado State's SOS was actually slightly better than ECU's. They have a very winnable, but not completely pathetic schedule left. I wouldn't be shocked at all if they end up being #1 among G5's in the playoff committee poll this week. You don't hear much about them since they're not on the east coast, but their numbers look good.
ECU probably will be, just saying I wouldn't be shocked if they were. I'd say they definitely have a stronger case than Marshall at the moment.
Temple isn't winning the national title, but they're talented on defense and they'll give ECU a hard time. They'll also probably be in a bowl. Took a good UCF team a last second one handed touchdown to beat a much worse Temple team last year.
Cincys defense is pitiful right now, but they'll be the most powerful offense we'll play all season.
Neither of those will be roll over games
I also quite frankly don't care about the G5 new year bowl team conversation as it's purely assumption and speculation at this point. I'm far more interested in watching my team deal with the pressure of controlling their own destiny.
nothing I do can "change the situation".
I can disagree with the last 3 statements as when things like this happen It is those people who already lean towards that view who strengthen their view, not the general public who will be shocked initially then let unreasonable feelings subside.foisting that view on the general public is just as wrong as saying all of UNC has done this.
So you're telling me that you believe that Americans wont generalize this and blame it on UNC as a whole?
That's ridiculous, and you're wrong. UNC is being made to look like a bunch of fraudulent liars right now.
I never said that , I said they didn't perpetrate this. This is not a defense it is just the facts. sorry but the whole university is not compromised just the AFAM dept. unless it is found some other depts. did the same thing.
I suppose, but that doesn't improve the situation. Sure, just because (assuming) that certain people didn't instigate something, that doesn't mean that it changes the big picture.
Take your mind outside that of an in depth fan. Put yourself in the shoes of a person that knows just as much about UNC-CH as they do about any other university in this country. That's the majority of not only the American public, but also more specifically the media (AKA the entities that control what people talk about).
Use that same mindstate - ignorance (you know, because I'm talking about the American general public) - and ask yourself these questions:
Is every NFL team compromised by the domestic violence scandal? Absolutely. NFL players are wifebeating scumbags
Is every NBA team compromised by the Ron Artest fight? Absolutely. NBA players are thugs. And it was this way for years.
Perception is reality. It means everything, ask anyone involved in anything that a lot of people are looking at.
