UNC @ Wake
Kansas @ BC
Pitt@Penn State
NC State@WVU
Furman@VaTech
Citadel@GaTech
Louisville@Western KY
Bethune-Cookman@Miami
Duke@MiddleTennessee
Clemson@Syracuse
FSU@UVA


Another good week in store.  A few cupcakes but overall very interesting games.

UNC Wake certainly has a new level of interest.  I would love to see them undefeated when we play them as a hopeful gameday.

NC State will be interesting I still don’t know how good they are.

Clemson vs Syracuse.  They’ve been a thorn in our side mainly because we haven’t been able to have a starting QB play healthy for a few years.  The line is Clemson and 27.5 and I think if Ga offered legal sports betting I would put a few dollars on this one because Clemson will want to exorcise the demons of Syracuse.

The FSU trainwreck will probably get worse after UVa gets a hold of them

Pitt-PSU is a old time rivalry that will be fun to watch.

Mixed bag this week. Pitt will have a tough time. I think UVa will smash FSU. I would like UNC to win also, but yet again UNC is the underdog going into the game. This game will be a good comparison of two quality quarterbacks. The two defenses will also be great to compare. If, and it’s a kind of big if, UNC can beat WF and App St it does look like a gameday possibility. It would also guarantee a night game on ABC. That would be huge for UNC, especially if they can manage to keep it kind of close. There’s a lot of if’s in that, though. I would just be happy with a win Friday night for now.

WVU is garbage this season. If NCSU doesn’t bury them it should be disappointing.
Everyone else, except Pitt, should win one would think. Who would have thought Louisville and GT 2-1? I have to work Saturday, so I’ll miss a lot.

I’ve been watching the game and you are correct..Kansas is just beating them.  The old Mad Hatter still has a few tricks left up his sleeve.  They look good

Crazy all the games I felt like we’d be challenged in now look like super easy wins on paper, and some of the easy ones like Wake now look tougher.

BC got smacked.

How do you lose to Coastal Carolina and then destroy BC?  I didn’t know all of these games were on last night.

Without seeing us play yet today, we’re going to slice through the ACC like a hot knife.  VT losing to Furman, GT losing to Citadel, what we saw last night.  ACC ain’t looking to strong.  Wake could be our best game.  We’ll see what develops tonight.

Pitt just took the lead on Penn State and NC State is ties with WVU at the half.  VT has much deeper issues than originally thought.  Justin Fuentes is going to feel the hot seat if he loses for the second straight year to an FCS school.

Pitt missed a great opportunity.  Had 1st and goal on the 1/2 yard line and can’t put it it.  Rather than go for it and in the worst case PSU is pinned back, they try a field goal and missed the damn game.  I have to put that loss on poor coaching.

FSU vs UVA coming down to the wire, UVA pushing.  This might be crazy.  Will FSU lose ANOTHER one?  This would be a really really good and well needed win for FSU if they can hang on.

UVA just scored to go up with 2mins left in the game.  Drama!

UVA had FSU in 4th and 15, got called for PI and gave them a 1st down.  Should of been a no call.  1:21 left.

Then Bronco gets T’d up with unsportsmanlike conduct for another 15.  30yds on penalties for FSU to give them another shot.

Refs really trying to screw UVA, gave FSU another 1st down on 4th down for roughing the passer, which it wasn’t….dude took a dive.

LOL FSU goes for a direct snap to the RB with no time on the clock instead of running up and spiking the ball for a good shot at the end zone…..at around the 5yd line.  UVA wins.  Wow FSU, you need new coaches.

Overall, a bad week for the ACC teams. It didn’t help that Maryland, who looked great against Syracuse, lost to Temple. NCSU had a bad loss. GT ? I like The Citadel so that was good with me, but not a good look for conference claims.
