  1. This late in the game, I'm always pulling for the QC and I really wanted y'all to get a chance to knock off WF after last year. Congrats to those young men at Vance for getting here but there is still one round left so I hope they don't come out sleep.
  2. I hope you're saying what I think you're saying. It would be a major win on the trails for the Heels.
  3. In a rebuilding year, and only to flop against GA Southern and blow an undefeated season. I can't hate App State though, so that's all I got for you.
  4. Puke, ECU, and NC State....what do these three programs have in common? 🧐🧐
  5. Game. Richmond 35-32, Raiders comeback in the 2nd half and MP walks away empty handed again.
  6. Starting to sound like a comeback won't happen, I'll gladly think of this (and MPs overall inability to get over the hump) as karma for the recruitment of K Howard.
  7. That TD at the end of the third is looking like the turning point, Myers Park down 4 now with a chance to prove they can play from behind. Listening on radio call from OOS. 28-24 Raiders.

    4AA West Bracket Discussion

    Has there been any talks of something like an IMG white team (the one that can play in the FL playoffs and is not nearly as good) or Oceanside/Legion being done in Charlotte? I don't expect anyone to go for something like the main IMG team, which is basically a barnstorming team for elite HS football players, but I think a collegiate academy could take off in the right area of town.

    4AA West Bracket Discussion

    Mallard Creek is a great program but it seems like penalties have been a problem every year for a while now (speaking as someone who has been keeping up from a distance) just imagine how great they'd be if they didn't rack up penalties like rushing yards. Who is now the favorite? I didn't expect Richmond to trail Hough or win by single digits, I know folks still have questions about MP, and Vance seems to have a defense that can keep them in every game.
  10. Pulling for Goose Creek to cause as much chaos as possible.
  11. I think they beat State off of the strength of trying to win back NC (already got the Bell back) and being motivated for a potential bowl game in Mack's first year. I didn't expect them to beat Pitt for a 7th straight year but I think the Heels stop the current streak at three games and bumps their all time +/- in the series to +31 wins (67 total against the Pack). Edit: We know App and Wake are better than the triangle teams this year btw.

    Pep Rallies

    East Meck used to do Pep Rallies for Homecoming and Senior Night, we also held a couple for a few key games between 2005-2010. Not an every Friday thing but still an active tradition (as recently as last decade).
  13. The Maryland move was a money move to my knowledge, similar to Rutgers being done to get into the NYC market (which could be argued belongs to Penn State or another major B1G program). Mizzou being a desperation type of move is still crazy and says that another school could have gotten in, I was actually shocked that it wasn't Kentucky or West Va. The Louisville addition was kind of off target in terms of the ACC's footprint, it's next to VA but it's the furthest school going West and only fits if you include Notre Dame (who will likely not join the ACC full time unless they end up needing a conference for some reason). Utah makes sense if they were a backup to BYU but the school was still considered to be out of place in the PAC12 from an academic standpoint (iirc). I do understand your point of App being too small at the time and that is where my argument of the timing being off comes into play, there was definitely some expanding and investment to be done if the school would have made the jump and I cannot argue that at all. I definitely didn't mean that either had a serious chance of getting into the SEC during the last wave, just that I would have believed that would happen before the Heels (or the other two) became a true CFB contender. I appreciate the reply though, I wasn't aware that there was speculation of NC ST or VA Tech moving to the SEC.
  14. WR is one of the positions for UNC that is kind of deep. It was hard to tell the past few years but that group is talented and had about 3 kids coming in for 2020. Hoping they can scoop the DT from Dudley and Simpson from MC next.
  15. I don't think it is that far fetched, a lot of the teams that made the last round of expansion were surprises and some only made it because of the market they represented (Rutgers). Missouri to the big east was weird when it first happened and a lot of people thought they didn't fit although Missouri is right above Arkansas. Louisville to the ACC was also a weird one that caught some people off guard. Utah to the Pac 12 was another surprise. The timing was off but it wasn't something that was impossible at the time when conferences were pushing to expand.
