Lost 54-0 at Clemson. Although it was Clemson. Although Dungey got hurt early. Although it was already 10-0.
Lost 27-24 at FSU who was 2-5 going into the game and about to fire their HC.
Beat UNC at home 40-37 in 2 OT. They were 1-4 going in and about to fire their HC.
Lost at NC State 16-10 if you want to count it. It was a Thursday game so we had longer to prep but not a full 2 weeks. We were down 16-0 till late 3rd Q to a team that ended up 4-8 (1-7).
Won at Duke 49-6 which was very impressive.
Lost at home to Duke 38-24. It was their 1st win of the year in which they went 2-9 (1-9). Tommy played all but the last drive.
Lost at Louisville 30-0. Coming into that game they had lost 6 of 7 and were 2-6 overall.
So Dino is 2-5 coming off of a bye week having lost to some bad football teams. None of those losses did the team look sharp. And one of his wins was in OT against a bad football team. In all 5 losses we trailed at some point by at least 2 TDs (14 points).
I’d feel better if our D wasn’t leaving practically every downfield BC receiver wide open. Seems like an ACC qb would’ve exposed the secondary big time. I’m hoping they were somewhat intentionally left open betting the PWO qb couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn. I truly hope so.
Watching the LVille Clemson tape Id imagine is going to be very beneficial to our staff to see how the Cardinals handle the admittedly depleted Clemson front and look for chinks in the armor, and also how they respond to the legs of Shipley
if we’re gonna beat em, I’m pretty sure we’re gonna have to do it on the ground.
