Remember the Louisville defender at media day saying our O was predictable. Hopefully Gilbert will be able to put some wrinkles in that will work.
Hopefully Gilbert remembers who he is and goes at him a few times.

Are we really playing three straight years at Ville?
Crazy. Just strange schedules due to Covid. Team is going to get real familiar with Winston-Salem and Chestnut Hill in the coming years.

I am supremely confident that at least one of these teams we're going to kick right in the dick and come away with the w.

We have had some bad games coming off a bye week.

2016
Lost 54-0 at Clemson. Although it was Clemson. Although Dungey got hurt early. Although it was already 10-0.

2017
Lost 27-24 at FSU who was 2-5 going into the game and about to fire their HC.

2018
Beat UNC at home 40-37 in 2 OT. They were 1-4 going in and about to fire their HC.

2019
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).

2019
Won at Duke 49-6 which was very impressive.

2020
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.

2020
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).
Very good research thank you, I would bet Dino's teams are usually 2 - 5 even without having a bye week.

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.
Let’s win all three!!

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.
Well, I do t think we are winning through the the air
