Pigskin and Hoops

Well like predicted The ACC had high hopes by having 5 teams in top 25 preseason poll. That didn't fare well so we knew they would beat each other up. Virginia Tech is waiting to see who they will meet for the ACC Championship next week in Charlotte. One of those teams is NC State who last won the ACC in 1979. That team finished 5-1 in the Conference and 7-4 overall. They were to play in The Garden State bowl but declined due to exams. That was actually a year the Conference was Good in football. If memory serves me right.(which it does) The conference won a few bowl games that year and beat some SEC opponents in their house.(That was back then) Now State must beat Maryland on their Senior Day at their place to have a rematch with the Hokies who came back to upend the Pack earlier this season in Raleigh. Florida State will go to Charlotte if Maryland wins. There will be several rivalry games as well. Carolina- Duke Virginia - Virginia Tech South Carolina- Clemson Georgia Tech - Georgia and Florida- Florida St. These games will be played for bragging rights in their respective States and gives the winning school an advantage in their recruiting battles.

This will pretty much end the football Regular Season and throw us into the basketball season starting with the ACC-BIG 10 Challenge. Hopefully some of us get to see better things from our teams who have gotten off to a rocky start. Some have gotten off to a promising start and are looking for their respect. The Challenge will help them possibly earn it.

Maryland did what Carolina should have done. That is score touchdowns!
