ACC Football Week #7: Review

The more this college football season progresses the more it feels like college basketball where parity is king and the occasional upset loss is simply part of the season’s fabric. So far this seasons top ten upsets have been the rule rather than the exception and being ranked versus a non-ranked school is a dangerous proposition. On Sunday the first BCS ratings will be released and given the fact that #1 and #2 lost on Saturday there is a good chance Boston College will be in the #2 spot. That basically means I need someone to explain to me..again…why did Tom O’Brien left Boston.

Wake Forest 24 #21 Florida State 21

This game was horrible at every level and the officials should never be allowed to call an ACC game ever. I watched most of this game and I was sort of surprised to see how involved Chuck Amato seems to be in aiding Bobby Bowden run the team. On one penalty call Amato stood next to Bowden and the Bowden turned to Amato like a kid looking at his parent asking what they should do. In other words I think Bowden is done and really should be put out to pasture and hire someone who does not listen to Amato. As for Wake they shed the fluke label and proved they are the defending champion for a reason.

#18 Virginia Tech 43 Duke 14

Yawn. I heard people suggest that Duke maybe could win this game because the Hokies offense is anemic. Well even with Sean Glennon back in the lineup following Tyrod Taylor’s injury VT was still capable of beating Duke senseless.

#4 Boston College 27 Notre Dame 14

BC really ought to be ashamed on themselves. 27 points? That’s it?

Georgia Tech 17 Miami 14

The Yellow Jackets did their job in holding Miami in check. Obvisously given Miami’s offensive woes we will take this performance by the GT defense with a grain of salt.

UVA 17 UConn 16

UVa is 6-1 with three close games to their credit. I would think that runs out at some point but the Cavs are now bowl eligible and leading the Coastal Division which is scary but not as scary as the fact they could win every game they play from this point on. A BC-UVa ACC Championship would be interesting to say the least.

SCAR 21 UNC 15

For all the mistakes to have two shots at the endzone from the thirty is something you can take with you and know the more time marches on the Heels will improve.

Record This Week: 4-2
Record This Season: 44-15

    Two days later and I’m still seeing that Joe Dailey pass (three words that hurt just to type) in my head. Mind boggling, really. He seems like a classy guy, especially in the way he approached the move from QB to WR. So it almost seems sadistic to put him in a position where he predictably becomes the goat once again.

    Despite the losses, I keep thinking about how fun it is to watch Tar Heel football again. With the exception of a pretty painful South Florida game, it’s been great to watch this team grow and compete.

    Totally agree. I actually want to go on the road and see the Heels play against Wake. Not sure I’ve ever had that feeling.
