Sorry…someone has to say it…
Maybe Frank Beamer and his cHokies should have been thinking about their game against North Carolina rather than whining and crying about getting blocked a few times by the Jackets. Its funny how they didn’t complain last year when they won the game.
I already suspected that Beamer’s boys were having a tough time working through their manhood issues based on what had been in the press the past week. But then the cHokies allowed a woeful Tar Heels team to come into their house, supposedly tough Lane Stadium, and score twice in the last three minutes of the game to tie and then win the game. Less than two weeks ago VT was being mentioned in national title conversations…and now they aren’t.
I wonder what the complaints will be this time?
Travel Plans for Tampa?
How many of you have made travel plans to be in Tampa on December 5th?
With the aforementioned loss by Virginia Tech, the ACC Coastal Division title is squarely in the Jacket’s sights.
Miami and VT now both have two conference losses against Tech’s single loss. The only two teams that look to offer a potential challenge are Duke and Virginia. The Jackets hold a head to head tiebreaker over UVA and will have a chance to deliver a similar beating to Duke later in the season.
But before that, UVA and Duke will face off this weekend. That will guarantee another ACC loss for one of them.
Duke will have to play UNC, Miami, and Wake Forest along with the Jackets to close out their season. UVA will have to face Miami, Boston College, Clemson, and Virginia Tech to end their season…a tough row to hoe following Duke this weekend.
With the Jackets facing only Wake and Duke in conference down the back stretch, things certainly look good.
Sick of ESPN? I am!
I think if I hear “SEC Speed” one more time on an ESPN broadcast I’m going to vomit. It seems like ESPN goes out of its way to mention the SEC in every single broadcast. It doesn’t matter what teams are playing. They just have to compare everything to the SEC.
The truth of the matter is that the SEC is extremely top heavy with Florida and Alabama sitting high in the polls. Beyond those two teams you’ve got Ole Miss and South Carolina loitering around #21 and #22.
I almost, ALMOST, hope that UGA beats the Gators this weekend. It would be worth it to see ESPN’s pet team fall down the polls a bit. And it would help GT’s strength of schedule at the end of the season when the Jackets knock off the Mutts to go 3-0 in the SEC. (Yes, we’ll beat Vandy this weekend…Paul Johnson has demonstrated that his 2009 team can handle success without stumbling…)
