So you're saying there's a chance.


I'm just not understanding all this love for the TarHoles***

15-10 the past two years and won the Belk Bowl.

I'm not sure why you're questioning their alleged awesomeness.

there's a big viewing audience in that area of the country.

Agree.

Big market in the North Carolina cities. Need to get them interested.

That's the purpose of preseason hype.

Also, UNC athletes can spend 100% of their time on their sport. They don't have to worry about distractions like classes or tests. It's a big advantage for them.


ESPN has 94.9% changce of being WRONG.

Guess we'll find out Sept 27th Tarholes? What a joke!***

To be fair, UNC's game against Clemson


Posted: Jul 15, 2014 11:13 AM
 

Doesn't have all that much to do with whether or not they will win the ACC. They can easily go to the ACCCG, while losing to Clemson.


That's because the Coastal Division is so weak.***

Yes.***

That's pretty bad. Should be FSU: 80%, CU: 20%***

% chances of winning a game are pretty arbitrary


Posted: Jul 15, 2014 12:15 PM
 

I mean, if you think FSU is going to win the ACC, it really doesn't matter what chance you give another team. I guess their reasoning is that since Clemson is in the same division as FSU, they've got less of a chance than a lesser team in the Coastal.


Yea, I don't think the coastal has a chance to win.


Posted: Jul 15, 2014 12:22 PM
 

It really boils down to Clemson v. FSU.

Fellas,

It all boils down to whoever gets to the title game. Their money is on FL STATE and UNC playing for the title. That's why UNC's % chance of winning the ACC is higher than ours.


I believe their "chances" are based on actual math


Posted: Jul 15, 2014 12:25 PM
 

which are based on their "power index". Like, they ran 1,000 simulations, and Clemson won the ACC in 51 of them.


Bub

The ACC championship game will be played earlier this year..


Posted: Jul 15, 2014 12:31 PM
 

Clemson vs FSU.

FSU's beat writher David Hale doesn't give us much of a chance.

I disagree.


I really don't understand these SoS calculations


Posted: Jul 15, 2014 12:29 PM
 

UNC's schedule is rated 39th while ours is 51st. Compare the games...

@FSU >>> @ND
@UGA >>> @Miami (90k fans vs 90 fans)
SCAR >>> VT (lol these 3 games aren't even in the same stratosphere in terms of difficulty)
Louisville > @Duke
@GT > GT
Cuse < Pitt
NCST = NCST
@BC = @UVA
@Wake (TH night) = @ECU ?? -depends how terrible Wake is

I don't even feel like doing the rest, but where in the heck is their schedule tougher than ours? Is it because San Diego St is less terrible than SC State and Liberty is sucks slightly less than Georgia St or something completely absurd like that?


2 FCS games are probably a big culprit.***


Posted: Jul 15, 2014 12:31 PM
 




Yes, and I would also argue...


Posted: Jul 15, 2014 12:41 PM
 

That VT is a little closer to SCU than TigersandCubs thinks, and also that @Duke might actually be tougher than UofL at home.


Cutcliffe is a great coach that has overachieved with lesser


Posted: Jul 15, 2014 1:08 PM
 

talent, but Petrino is every bit the equal of Cutcliffe and he's going to inherit a lot more talent at Louisville than Cutcliffe has at Duke. The only edge i would give Duke is that the players are already in the system.


You do know we only pay 1 FCS team right?***


Posted: Jul 15, 2014 4:58 PM
 




They have to play US. - We don't.***

So ... ESPN is making bad pron movies with

both the SEC AND UNC?

"When I was young, I was sure of many things; now there are only two things of which I am sure: one is, that I am a miserable sinner; and the other, that Christ is an all-sufficient Saviour. He is well-taught who learns these two lessons." -John Newton


Bub

UNC is the new SEC...


Posted: Jul 15, 2014 12:40 PM
 

Raleigh-Durham, Charlotte, Houston, Dallas, and Austin are among the fastest growing cities in the USA. The new money is moving there.

Expect a steady diet of UNC and Texas hype from ESPN.


These numbers make no sense: if these are "odds to WIN"


Posted: Jul 15, 2014 12:59 PM
 

the conference, then they are predicting UNC to be better than us...

To WIN the ACC, they have to beat us AND FSU (in the title game).

If these were odds to go to the Champ game then yeah, they'd have a better shot 'cause the Coastal sucks.


Why would they have to beat Clemson?


Posted: Jul 15, 2014 1:03 PM
 

(Assuming FSU wins the Atlantic)


Meant Clemson or FSU but that means ESPN thinks they


Posted: Jul 15, 2014 1:22 PM
 

have a better shot at beating FSU than us...


It's tougher to win the Atlantic than the coastal...so UNC


Posted: Jul 15, 2014 8:59 PM
 

Has a better chance to get to the CG.


Re: FB Update: ESPN gives Clemson 5.1% to win ACC title


Posted: Jul 15, 2014 1:25 PM
 

I love it!!! There is not a better way to get a bunch of duds ready to play than telling them they ain't sh!t. But when you tell the talented guys we have that they ain't Sh!t, you challenged their heart, and the kind of steal they are made of. As of right now, their HEARTS and the Armor they are made of has been disrespected by the sports media saying to them that they are no more than a third place mediocre ACC team. If this don't set a fire in their guts, nothing will. I believe it will make their fire hotter. GOOOOOOO TIGERSSSSSS, I believe in you!!!!


SO YOU'RE SAYING THERE'S A CHANCE.....***


Posted: Jul 15, 2014 3:35 PM
 




I live in North Carolina and the UNC fans here would laugh


Posted: Jul 16, 2014 2:11 AM
 

At the prediction. They know they don't stand a chance against Clemson or FSU. This is absurd by ESPN. It's like they want us to fall but we will not fall. It would be awesome for FSU and Clemson to be in the playoff with a Clemson win.

I guess we could put an ACC spin. Lol

They must think they make all their money in the SEC no matter if the ACC is better. Crazy!!
