    What is the process to kick UNC football out of the ACC if they hire Mack Brown? If they want to give up on football, why not keep Fedora?

    $12,000,000 US currency just to pull 67 year old Mack Brown off of ESPN :roll:

    Could see UNC poach Paul Johnson if Mack falls through.

    He's given up a sack or two this year, had a couple penalties, but otherwise has been really solid.

    Gotcha. My Clemson buddies seemed unimpressed earlier this year. Could be a "prisoner of the moment" type deal. Just seemed like they weren't seeing the all-world type OL he was billed as.

    Not as good as his first two years, but he hasn't been blocking for Deshaun Watson either.

    Option A: 59 tackles (including an ACC leading 18 TFL) and 5 sacks
    Option B: 31 tackles and 0.5 sacks

    I bet you can guess who got ACC first team

    Made me go look.

    Dabo - 49
    Doeren - 46
    Dino - 57
    Addazio - 59
    Taggart- 42
    Clawson - 51

    For some reason I had no idea that Doeren was the 3rd youngest coach in the ACC.

    they are going to be ASS. the TO was the only thing keeping them afloat, like the service academies. their academic requirements are too stringent and they don't care enough about the sport for some wunderkind to come in and turn them into a powerhouse. they're going in the toilet and staying there.

    It’s not even that their academic requirements are tough grade or entry wise (they are), it’s that they have such a focused curriculum. They’ve got something like 35 majors and 25 are STEM- nowhere to hide athletes. NC State by comparison has like 300 majors between undergrad and grad. I’m not saying NC State is GT academically, but having so few majors hurts when you have to fill an 85 man roster with kids who otherwise may never be computer engineers.

    that's been a similar problem for UVA and Duke, very limited options for majors. we can't just give away degrees for online courses like some schools.

    yea, totally right, just didn't want to dive further into it. even their non-STEM stuff has heavy STEM requirements, as you said there's nowhere for bad students to hide.

    hell, the infamous Chan Gailey Equilibrium of 7-5 only worked because the Coastal back then was literally just VT every year and maybe Miami. if Chan Gailey was coaching GT right now they'd be a 3-4 win team. they're in a lose-lose. you can't run the TO and dream big but you can't run a modern offense and academically clear the type of players a school usually needs to succeed.

    Of all the shit decisions Ive seen this conference make, putting a Tech team that will have a new coach and likely whole new system up against Clemson in their first game, ranks right up there at the top. Good Lord that's awful.
