No Thursday ACC Snoozer Tonight

I dont have a freaking clue about the game tonight. OK maybe I do.

I wouldn’t be a degenerate if I didnt at least have an opinion on who will cover in this Thursday night tilt. I guess the object is to pick the team I believe will win and since the spread is only NC -2.5 these 2 teams are without a doubt in the same position.
Allow me to elaborate. Combined they are 0-5 in the ACC. Florida State is 0-3 with losses to #8 Miami opening weekend, at BC and against #11 GeoTech last week all by a combined total of 16 points. This is the Noles 3rd road game of the year and since we know they lost at BC I’m sure you are wondering who else they played on the road. Try at BYU where they waxed the Cougs’ 54-28. Florida State is only losing by less than a TD average so they have been in their games.

On the other side of the coin we have the most overrated preseason top 25 team in college football.  NC knew they lost a lot of offense by losing savior Hakeem Nicks, who has scored the last 3 weeks for the NY Giants, along with other stars like Brandon Tate and Brooks Foster from the receiving corps. Other than scoring 40 against Citadel and 42 against Georgia Southern the Heels have scored a total of 53 points (13.5 avg) in their other 4 games of the season. Even more schocking is they have yet to go over 7 points in either of their 2 ACC games which includes a thumping by happless Virginia when they only scored 3 points at home! Never forget Viginia gave up 26 in a loss at home against Bill and Mary earlier this year.

So after all this ranting and raving here’s the bottom line.

Give Bobby Bowden 2 weeks to prepare especially after a 3 game losing streak during that whole booster BS in front of a national TV audience and I lean to Fla State. Although they average 426 yds/game they also give it up equally, but to better teams and I’m not sure the Heels are equal to BYU, Miami, GTech, and South Florida. I dont see Heels having a chance.

In a good game to watch..

I am betting Florida State to cover the +2.5 on the road
