Over at The Athletic they had their ACC predictions today and both had us going 6-6 (3-5) and going bowling. Sign me up!
if we sign up for 6-6 does that mean we can't sign up for 8-4? Feels kinda pathetic that we're ecstatic about a .500 season. Senior QB, need to shoot higher. 4-0 start should be in play.Over at The Athletic they had their ACC predictions today and both had us going 6-6 (3-5) and going bowling. Sign me up!
You think they can beat Florida State? I think they should be 3-1 headed to Death Valley. If they go to South Carolina 4-0, that will be a cherry on top.
no, what is pathetic is that we have missed a bowl game 10 of the last 13 years and have been unranked for the past SEVENTEEN years. which is why we will be ecstatic about a .500 season this year, gives us hope that things are turning around.
If we go from crawl to walk, it's fine. It's a process.
Every off-season I say if we could take a guaranteed 6 and 6 with a bowl appearance it would be a smart move, and every season we think we'll do better, and at the end of every season I wish someone had offered me the deal before the season started.
We will always be in the ACC Atlantic so i see this built in argument for generations to come. The teams in the division are serious about football. I have said since day 1 that the ACC needs to get real about these divisional setups. It's stupid we aren't in the same division as PITT/Miami/VT/BC/Ville.If we go from crawl to walk, it's fine.

If we go from crawl to run, great.
Nothing pathetic about a 6 win season in year 3 of a rebuild in the ACC Atlantic, and ND on the OOC schedule.
That would be a great division. Who would your 7th team be, Wake?We will always be in the ACC Atlantic so i see this built in argument for generations to come.

Having said that, FSU is to be had this year in year 1 of Taggert at the Dome. We have to at some point beat teams in down periods.
We have to make a push for 5-1 type start (4-0) start. Dungey is a senior. QBs rule in college football and we have one of the best.
The Commissioner determines the divisions?The ACC division makeup is a joke and always has been. The Coastal is so watered down compared to the Atlantic that it’s not even funny. Nothing will change as long as UNC’s boy Swofford is commissioner.
Anyone think he wants Carolina facing Clemson, FSU, and Louisville every year? Add in very improved teams in NCSU, Wake, and Boston College (with Syracuse not far behind) and it’s easy to see what’s what.
Babers is doing a great job fielding a tough as nails team in his short tenure. If he can get to the point where he’s consistently recruiting high 3 and 4 star players, the sky’s the limit for Orange football.
Thinking through it,
This current team is better than NDThinking through it,
3-0: Done +3
UConn & UNC: Layups +2 (5-0)
Clemson & ND: Really hard -2 (5-2)
BC, NCSU, WF, UL, and Pitt: All tossups, where we’re probably slightly below the group’s average. +2, -3
I can see 7-5, with an outside shot at 8-4. We’ve done well in bowls recently (K-State, MN, and WVU), so I think that we have a really great shot at 8 wins (7-5 w a loss it balanced out by 8-4 with a win). All-in-all, going 8-5 would be extremely promising, given that we’ve only had 2 full recruiting cycles under this system (the first class was truncated).
I think that the fear is a late season slide.
