Time to beat each other up!

ACC football is finally here. They obviously aren't ready for the Big stage but they are ready to knock each other around for a few months. There are alot of questions to be answered during this time. The biggest surprise to me right now besides NCStates 4-0 start is a depleted North Carolina team that are a few plays from 3-0. I will not start with the what ifs but playing close games with these back up kids is amazing. Saturday against East Carolina should be a shootout. ECU can put points on the board but have a difficult time stopping people as well. They allow 41 pts per game so Carolinas 4th team defense had better be ready!(kidding but some 4th stringers are probably playing)

Russell Wilson is possibly where he left off from last season before baseball started. He is pretty good at that too. There have been comparisons to Charlie Ward.(I know he played basketball) Wilson sure playes like him. They have a lot of simililarites and want to be on the field with the game on the line. He has become the best Field General since Phillip Rivers was in Raleigh. Saturday is a huge chance for him to spotlight infront of a National Television audience. He has one National TV win and looked good in doing so. They will not be playing Cincinnati saturday. Virginia Tech is the favorite to win the ACC Crown along with Clemson, Miami and Florida State. Saturdays game is a huge measuring stick for both teams,especially NC State. Virginia Tech is used to being the favorites and they are still mad from a 0-2 start. They know they have a lot to prove but State feels the same way and 4-0 being ranked in the nations top 25 should give them enough incentive. 5-0 would be amazing!! Its time to put the women and children to bed and go looking for dinner.

Is it time for BASKETBALL?

Which game was more important for the ACC this weekend? Hope nobody voted!

Cincinnati at NC State
Maryland at West Virginia
East Carolina at Virginia Tech
BYU at Florida State
Alabama at Duke
Clemson at Auburn
Wake Forest at Stanford

FYI- Duke and Wake Forest lost by a combined score of 130-37, after their shootout in Winston Salem last week. State and Florida State won impressively over quality teams.(they were good last year) Lets not forget Clemson finding a way to lose. Carolina fumbling away another 4th quarter drive(dont care if its a conference game). Also locally ECU was given a dose of reality by a pissed off Virginia Tech team.Losing by the same score they pasted Memphis with(49-27) last week. This was a week for the ACC show off that preseason hype again. This sure is not the year! Its time for some hoops! The only thing I learned this weekend was the Carolina Panthers are the best(College)team in the state of North Carolina!

Well this was a Saturday for the ACC to show its improvement, and they "stunk up the joint"! Miami and Florida State showed why they have hit the skids over the years. But they had big wins over crappy opponents last week! Both got their butts kicked on the road. Georgia Tech and Virginia Tech were upset by teams that honestly had no business being on the same field with them. NC State held on to beat Central Florida on the road and Virginia shut USC down but still lost. But The ACC game of the day was Duke and Wake Forest,who put on a score fest. 70 pts were scored in first half. 102pts in all. This will be another year of ACC teams beating up on each other in conference play. They are still a step behind everyone else in College Football and it doesn't look any better next week as Alabama comes to play Duke. At least it will be tied at kick off! Basketball cannot get here soon enough!!

An interesting first week. 2nd week even better!

The first weekend of College Football came and left with a sense of what lies ahead for the rest of the season. There were expected blow outs,last second finishes and major upsets. I am still in shock(like many others) that Jacksonville St won at Ole Miss. Alabama is still the best in the land. Granted they beat a cream puff, like Ohio State, Georgia,Florida State, Miami and Florida(who struggled) did as well. North Carolina who was missing 13 players made LSU sweat it out in Atlanta. Virginia Tech did the same to Boise State (except Boise rallied to win). Both had great comebacks that fell short. Next week there are some really good match ups and should make for another exciting week of college football. Competition will be much stiffer than last weekend. There are alot of talented quarterbacks this year. Several will be on display this weekend.
