This must be how my dog feels after that fun, windows down car ride ends at the vet's office. Anyway, on to the horror.
Virginia Tech 16, James Madison 21
VIP&SU, you are my least favorite child. I know I'm suppose to love all my children equally, but I don't. You suck. Something called a Drew Dudzik passed for 121 yards and a touchdown and ran for 35 yards and two more touchdowns. Pedestrian numbers, so why did VPI&SU lose? Minus three turnover margin.
Georgia Tech 25, Kansas 28
A workman like effort for the Jackets. If their job title was "Poop Smith". New Kansas QB Jordan Webb was 18 for 29 for 179 yards (linebacker can't cover their mouth when they sneeze) and three touchdowns. Jackets dropped five passes.
Florida State 17, Oklahoma 47
And it could have been worse. Oklahoma called of the dogs after Landry Jones threw for 380 yards and four touchdowns. Christian Ponder passed for 112 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions. Week 2, where ACC Heisman hopes go to die.
Miami 24, Ohio State 36
Way to not get your ass beat too badly. Jacory Harris threw four picks in the game, but at least two of those were due to the fact that Travis Benjamin had no freakin' clue what the play call was. It often looked like Miami wide receivers were running the wrong routes. P.S. Ohio State is for real.
Boston College 26, Kent State 13
Yeah! a win! Its like so much better than losing. Story line for every Boston College game this year, Montel Harris carries the ball 29 times, Dave Shinskie pulled in first half only to be reinserted in second half. With that out of the way we can now talk about the Soxs, or Pats, or Celtics, or Notre Dame, or Revolution...
Duke 48, Wake Forest 54
Tony Rutledge sealed the game for the Deacons with a pair of late free throws.
Seriously, at least this game had a certain 'joy de vivre'. The teams combined for 987 yards of total offense, and set an ACC record for total points scored in the game. Deac' back up QB Tanner Price was the man of the game with 190 yards passing, three passing touchdowns, and a rushing score. His counter part, Sean Renfree, passed for 358 yards, four touchdowns and three interceptions. Young man, your ball security can be described in one word, 'casual'.
Virginia 14, USC 17
And they did that on the road! Scholarship restrictions hurt, don't they Lane. Quarterback Marc Verica (17-36 for 190, 1 TD and 1INT) said after the game that the Cav's performance is proof they can play with anyone left on there schedule. Yes you can. The Cav's still suck, but they certainly can.
Clemson 58, Presbyterian 21
Clemson was up 42 nothing at half time.
Maryland 62, Morgan St 3
Maryland was up 45-nothing in the first half. Oh God, Ralph Friedgen or Dabo Sweeney is going to represent the Atlantic Division in the ACCCG.
NC State 28, UCF 21
That's the kind of win you want to hang your hat on as a league. Surprisingly it was the NC State defense that led the way, as the offense didn't produce much yardage, but did capitalize on five Knight turnovers. George O'Leary was mature enough to throw his quarterback under the bus after the game. Good on yeah, George.
