Line dropped all the way too 3 tonight. Something is up. Could be those OL injuriesSaw on the UNC board rumors swirling that Fuente and other Va Tech personal have tested positive. UNC will be without several starters, but it's due to injury and not Covid. Duck, Conley, 1-2 guys on the OL and a guy on the DL is what I'm hearing. Expect a lot of Tony Grimes tomorrow.
Wild game today. Good test for the heels. Should move up in the pollsNorth Carolina talent on display today on National TV.....
Sam Howell (Sun Valley)- 276 yards and 3 TD's
Javonte Williams (Wallace Rose Hill)- 224 total yards & 2 TD's
Dyami Brown- (West Meck)- 86 yards and 2 TD's
6 game-winning streak
2017 & 2018= 5 combined wins
2019 & 2020 (3 games in) = 10 wins
2020 Recruiting Class Rank- #13
2021 Recruiting Class Rank- #12
Mack is back.
UNC was doing fine until the offense started stalling/scoring quick and they got gassed. Va Tech ran over 60 plays in the first 45 minutes and ended up with 77 offensive snaps while holding the ball for 32 minutes. Heels were without their #1 DT, no Bingley Jones, no Pinder and also without Conley and Duck in the secondary. Got Rene and Kelly back but this was their first action since their season-ending injuries last year. Regardless, nice to see the offense put up about 700 yards including over 400 on the ground.neither team played a lick of defense
Well, that's certainly glass half full. The half empty would be the #5 team in the country just lost to a team whose only win was a struggle against JsU.An amazing stat I dug up earlier this week.
2017 and 2018 = 10 combined losses by 2 scores or more.
2019 and 2020 = 0
UNC has been in 17 straight competitive games under Mack. Worst loss has been by 7 points.
Hell of an effort by the boys in the second half. Two blocked punts, pick 6, turnover on downs inside the 5/10 yard line and still had a chance on the last drive. Can’t have those 3 drops on the last drive. Both coaches and players have to be more sound moving forward.
Just being a realist. We all know the rankings are flawed due to Oregon, Wiscy, Ohio State, Minny, Penn St, Michigan not playing and LSU, Florida, Auburn, Oklahoma, Texas etc already having multiple losses. This was a big-time game for FSU to get back on track -- credit to them because they came out ready to ball. Bingley Jones, Pinder, Conley, Evans were the prized recruits in this years class and other than Evans (handful of snaps) none of have hardly seen any snaps due to injury. Was hoping we'd see those guys early on but it hasn't worked out that way.Well, that's certainly glass half full. The half empty would be the #5 team in the country just lost to a team whose only win was a struggle against JsU.
I think yesterday shows that UNC has come along way but all the hype was a bit much. Still a ways to go. Those defensive recruits will be a huge help.
He never got to FSU, think he’s still at Iowa Central CC. At one time he was the #1 overall recruit in his class. All the talent in the world but he just wasn’t motivated, no fault of JBB’s.NBBears question. Keion Joyner signed with FSU about five years ago. Had some academic issues and left for JUCO. Did he ever play any at FSU or at any four year school? Remember JBB kicked him off the team his senior season.
Yea, that logic never works. Each game is different. I can give you many examples if you want them! Lotta ball game left this year....legggoooo.Clemson destroyed Georgia Tech and put up 73 points, who beat FSU, and FSU beats the Heels, who are allegedly contenders for the ACC title. To be continued!
I don’t have a particular program I cheer for, I usually just watch Creek guys. I don’t believe any team in the ACC will come close to beating Clemson this year.Gotcha, bet you were sweating that FSU 💥tweet on that last drive, almost had to delete! 18-22 year olds, never know what’s going to happen. Who do you have as ACC contenders? Notre Dame that has played close games to Duke and L’ville? Long season, anything can happen.
