UNC just landed a 5 star recruit, then immediately after a 5 star recruit decommitted from Auburn (the kid was 90% Auburn, 10% NC). So far it's looking better recruiting-wise. They're currently 17th for 2020, and will jump a few more spots if the 2nd 5 star officially declares. Seems like Mack brown is at least snagging the instate good ones that would normally leave.

Florida would've likely won anyway, just by less, if those bad calls/no calls hadn't happened. UNC has lost a 1pt game, a 2 pt game, a 3 pt game and a 6 pt game. Haha damn it. Hopefully they can win 6 though. The road ahead sucks too(I was HOPING for 8, but 6 is more realistic now). NC State is sucking lately so all they'll care about is beating NC in the last game of the season. Add pitt and Virginia, all 3 of those will be very tough. Then there's duke as well. Who knows. NC was 2nd in the ACC power rankings until yesterday with a 3-3 record lol. Georgia's defense is still playing very well, but offensively they're still not clicking like they could. Yesterday's game was still more of the common theme. Just beating teams because they're supposed to. Btw, I'm not saying this means anything but I saw this the other day comparing Kirby smart and Mark richt.....ah shit I can't find it, but it was a side by side comparison of their first 4 years at Georgia. It was 99% identical record and resume-wise. Just 1 digit was different by 1 for a year for something.

At least sports media is being easier on Georgia than they were Clemson for almost losing. I think I said a few weeks ago that I thought NC and SC were the best 2-3 teams. Now I can use the logic NC > SC > GA > ND > ... Notre Dame ruins it, there's no one to put. But yeah no one wants to play Georgia, especially now I'd THINK. They have more 5 star players than anyone with a lot of potential.

I noticed mizzou has quietly attained a 5-1 record, but they're banned from post season play this year.

OSU Wisconsin will be interesting. The best outcome would be that Wisconsin dominates them. The worst outcome would be that neither team shows up and Ohio State barely wins. Then everyone acts like it was a matchup of the ages and OSU is just THAT good. If Wisconsin plays well and OSU finds a way then power to them. I feel that Wisconsin is a deserving team this year though and I just don't wanna see OSU get lucky.

NC plays VA tech next. So far, nc's wins have been getting better and their losses not as bad. App and wake are ranked 23 and 28, Clemson 3, and Miami and SC both just beat a ranked team. I haven't seen NC in a bowl game in 3 years haha. They're 3-3 and have an fcs still on the schedule. VA tech, Virginia, duke, Mercer, Pitt, NC State. Mercer is the only given win. They *should* be able to win at least 2 out of those 5. 3 is probably expected, but we'll see.

Like focalor said SC always plays tough against GA. Excuse the typical 'that loss was probably good for them, they needed it' post, but I'd lean on them benefiting from it. They've been winning games just from simply being the better team and nothing too special. Better it happened now rather than at the end of the season.

Holy shit are Ohio State fans LOVING the Georgia loss. Their fans are the worst lmao. Ohio State wants no part of SC or anyone remotely solid for that matter. Big fan of their AD having the team's best interests in mind with cancelling out of conference games with everyone. Their hands are full as it is losing to Purdue, unranked Iowa, VA tech, etc.

It would be very fitting if it were Michigan this year. The season where everyone thinks osu is #1 and Michigan sucks the most.

I'm not sure about Ohio State. The two most popular opinions are that they're #1, and they're terribly overrated. I think neither, and I'll probably still be uncertain even if they beat Wisconsin because I'm unsure about them too. Everyone thinks them beating Wisconsin will affirm that they're number 1, I think they should be ranked less and a good win over wisco should earn them their CURRENT ranking.

I can see where you're coming from though. Probably because Georgia hasn't been able to play well all 4 quarters yet among other things. Idk though, sill may be enough to take blowhio state.

Ohio State bailed out of their 2021-22 home home games with Georgia. Just like they bailed on UNC in 15-16.

Yeah Army v. Navy has always been a huge one and a classic one. If you were to google it, I'm pretty sure it would say OSU Michigan then Army Navy for college football if I were to guess. Other than the olympics, in soccer there is some mixture of spain, barcelona, and brazil. I think two of those have a big rivalry. And there's Canada and Russia in hockey. Celtics v. Lakers when Larry Bird v. Magic Johnson was a thing. Chicago bears vs... I forget.

Alabama v. Clemson has been slowly turning into a thing, we'll see if that continues. I hope not :mrdead:

Holy shit. Bammers think thems er dern fightin' words if you say anything about their Alabama Auburn rivalry. This grizzly dippin nutria smoking bammer was telling me that bama Auburn is the greatest sports rivalry in the world. I'm like dude the world? Don't you mean college football? He says no in the entire world in sports HBO did a special on it. I say I certainly respect it more than ohio state Michigan, texas oklahoma, etc but the world?? HELL NO. He got pissed!! I mentioned yankees vs red Sox, ali vs frasier, and then UNC Duke in basketball and I think I may have caused him to have a stroke. Thank GOD I didn't bring up soccer, I think he would've tried to strangle me.

And yes I know it's a huge game. I told him I recalled a special saying that ohio state Michigan was overrated, they had auburn Alabama Auburn as #1 and Carolina duke #2 for ALL college sports but NOPE, shouldn't have even suggested it could be #2, when he heard basketball I may as well said badminton.  Actually, worse than that.
I think it would've been better had I mentioned competitive pokemon :lolsign:

Of course, college football has WAYYY bigger ratings than basketball. Nc duke is just an exception having not only more views than the ncaa championship game, but double.

How about what Carolina has done after Newton has been sidelined?

I do feel for cam, a little, I think that franchise has run him into the ground a bit. He played through a lot of injuries. But, he's also a fruit cake with a weird ego. So I can't help but laugh when a back up that nobody knows is the first backup QB since the 90s to go 4-0 in his first career starts. And how about Christian McCaffrey?! Holy shit, that kid is really putting up some numbers. Then Luke Kuechly, a top 3 linebacker every year and arguably the best, is putting up even more exceptional numbers than usual. So long Cam and thanks for 2016! :lolsign:

We all know his potential though. Hopefully the franchise doesn't run CMC into the ground in the next few years. He's playing like someone that's gonna tear their ACL one of these days...

I didn't catch Tennessee Georgia but I did watch almost all of unc vs g tech. Georgia tech didn't play well at all and got lucky several times. Sam Howell nailed wide open receivers twice in the end zone on 3rd down,  on 2 separate drives,  with one resulting in a missed FG. Halftime should've easily been 30-0 instead of 17-0. Bad coverage by g tech and the same happened in the 3rd quarter on nc's receiving end. I saw tweets in articles after to strip the receivers scholarships from lack of effort, lmao. Two huge turnovers by nc with one directly putting g tech in position to immediately score after. So NC got very lucky as well that ga tech couldn't capitalize unless it was served on a platter. The announcers said they had improved a lot especially since the citadel loss but I only watched the end of that game. Ga tech let nc coast for a win for more than 3/4 of a game despite dropped passes for basically free TD's and big turnovers. Bad coaching calls for g tech too. On UNC's end there hasn't been big coaching blunders for the past two games at least. Clemson especially. Although I think they should've done what they were doing the whole game for that failed 2pt conversion against Clemson because it was WORKING Haha. The OC 'tried' to catch them off with an option play to the right and dabo said his DC went up to him and predicted the exact play call.

I mean... I think AOC's answer was appropriate for the most part. Vague, deflective, typical politician baloney might've been the best thing for someone that bat shit crazy. I doubt coherently explaining why we shouldn't consume babies to her would've went well.

Speaking of which, the lefty mainstream media outlets are all saying she was a trump supporter. But it could be a group of radical leftists posing as trump supporters that pose as AOC supporters. It's up in the air whether or not George Soros funneled some money into a citizen support group that is affiliated with brettbart, and by the request of brettbart Donald Jr. has talked at several of their fundraising events. Sarah Huckabee Sanders' cousin is the recording corresponding secretary for the organization as well, so it REALLY, REALLY doesn't look good for the republicans. Baby-cannibalism-gate will be the undoing of Trump 2020.

UNC started out ranked 58th in strength of schedule. They are now 5th. Notre Dame is still #1, because they overrate their opponents so the wins mean a lot and the losses mean little(same with ohio state). Sucks the preseason SoS was so off in the FPI though. They set the narrative for the ACC coastal to be trash, and now they have duke 4-1(1 loss to alabama), UVA 4-1(1 loss to Notre dame), and wake forest 5-0 all on NC's schedule. NC is probably the best 2-3 team right now. I'd say SC normally had they not played each other in their opener.

Media on big 10: "Remember when Indiana gave ohio state a hard time? Northwestern beat Indiana!!! Man, the big 10 is just so good and so competitive!!!!"

Media on ACC coastal: "Well the acc coastal started out with unc, va tech, and miami all 5-0 but now they've all dropped a game to each other. The coastal is just so inconsistent no team stands out"

^That was 4-5 years ago haha, and if anything the big 10 was marginally worse than normal. The coastal is hit or miss but writing them off from the start sucks. Uphill battle to get a good bowl game from there.

I liked it too. The play selection on the other hand... But, that was the best game I've seen all season so far maybe. The ACC haters are already saying Clemson is trash and shouldn't be ranked, but whatever.
