Wake Forest (-6) @ Duke
Virginia Tech (-2) @ Pittsburgh
Abilene Christian @ Virginia
Liberty @ NC State (-2)
Georgia Tech @ Miami (-20)
lol god damnit
Will #North Carolina State Wolfpack be able to knock Liberty from the ranks of the unbeaten?
Liberty's working their way to an ACC Championship berth
They have a very dual thread QB. We’re gonna lose by several scores.
32 points is kind of a slap in the face to clemson
my understanding is:
- lose out (Pitt most likely won't happen, Clemson then UVA then bowl all losses) and Fuente is essentially a dead man walking for 2021 season
- some form of winning may get him extra time but still on extremely short leash barring huge success in 2021
- he's getting canned this year
pretty good odds for change, I like it.
Coach speak is the worst. Just once, I'd like one to just say that they're playing a shitty team and losing would bring shame upon the university
finally you guys can promote Shane.
At this point it might be a good move, but I wonder who he would bring to run the offense. He has never been more than a position coach anywhere.
the bigger point will not be hamstringing the next coach with half a staff. Fuente might have liked Foster just fine and he was still Bud Foster but coaches definitely need to have full say in their staffs. if coaches survive the transition because the next guy interviewed them and kept them that's different but Foster and his staff were essentially thrust upon Fuente and that didn't help things.
just time to move on. was a good hire at the time but it didn't work out. maybe he can coach well but just not at a place where recruiting means you actually need to put in effort to land kids.
also, given how cutthroat college football is in general I am amazed at how many good-to-great coaches let their assistants drag them down like an anchor. if Fuente fired Cornelson like a year or two ago who knows what could have happened later but much like Beamer he's entirely too loyal and it's going to cost him his job.
I want to find that post I made where I said he was a fucking moron for not taking the Baylor job when he flirted so heavily with them this offseason. he probably cost himself 15-20 million.
Hes also like lamar Jackson in that neither will be playing Saturday
I don't think Baylor ever offered.
okay, but what about the spread for the second half?
93's record margin of victory in the series is probably going down
Legit never thought it would be matched by either side......and its us on the ass end
Nah. It may be like 2 years ago, but probably not that bad even. Assuming we are up big around halftime, our 2nd string hasn't been doing much.
Dabo didnt seem to like Willie. Doesnt seem to have an issue with Norvell but last time out was an L. I doubt we try to GT yall though.
Really makes you think
Im telling you thats why GT got a 73 spot dropped on em. Collins pissed Dabo off last year with the lifting weights on the sideline.
forgot geoff pulled that shit
....we lost to that guy.....
openly I don't think so but there was more than enough happening behind the scenes for it not to be anything but real. they had five guys come to Blacksburg for the in-person interview and Fuente was expected to sign until we ponied up some money for his demands (which were reasonable).
think of it like Beamer and UNC, it was that close to happening. Baylor wanted him badly and they moved extremely fast on him. all understanding of the situation is if VT says "no" to his demands he was absolutely gone.
#Virginia Cavaliers why is a starting DT now in the portal?
white wine offerings have been lackluster since covid
i dont know. it just happened all the sudden.
Fuck off Peter.
How do bowls work this year? If VT magically makes one, are we on the hook to buy 40% of the tickets?
Everyone makes a bowl this year
Starting qb and another cb out for the year. Clemson really caught a break
Who is qb1? Travis?
Yeah, but his health meter usually runs out in the 2nd quarter. Then we have a true freshman and skill position players behind him.
Gonna be great
1993s 57-0 differential may really be in play it seems.
I wonder if we'll fall under the roster limits on injuries and quitters alone
everyone is eligible and assuming only 1 playoff ACC team we would have 9 bowls to fill.
Ok, bigger question: does VT lose $20 million by accepting a bowl game because we have to buy tickets to a game with a max capacity of 500 people?
FSU doing their best to get below 53
respect the game
God I hope those assholes can do it. Let's just think for a minute how bad UNC is to fall to this team
blocked punt leading to a td, pick 6, throw in our struggles against mobile qb's and an offense that sat on its hands for a half and baby you've got a stew going
We have plenty of capable bodies to replace his 11 missed tackles a game
More like Ham for coach of the decade
Sir Phobos Bryce Watts has entered the transfer portal after sitting out last year then opting out this one
I completely forgot he was even here, seems like forever ago. can't remember why he transferred but given our depth issues there's little doubt he wouldn't have been starting so lol
Not even making fun of the Hokies or Pitt for this. This is just stupid. This whole season is stupid.
