Wake Forest remaining schedule...with an oddity....

emoji_events [5]
Oct 9, 2021, 8:42 PM

Wake sits at 6-0 (4-0) in conference....

They have an OPEN week coming up, then....

Army
Duke
at UNC
N.C. State
at Clemson
at Boston College


The UNC game is a NON-CONFERENCE GAME for them.
I tend to believe they will take care of Army and Duke.
Then they go to Chapel Hill 8-0 for a non-conference game...where UNC could in theory beat a top 10-15 Wake team at that point...but it would not matter in regards to conference standings.
But unless Duke does something about it (not likely), Wake is going to sit there at the top of the division standings in the very least until November 13 when they play N.C. State. Even if they lost to Army or UNC.

Regardless, I'm pretty sure Wake's going to come to Clemson with a chance to potentially win the division....they have positioned themselves well. We'll see if we can win between now and then and set that one up as a winner take all sort of game.

Maybe Dabo can sell this team on chasing the division down from behind...because literally it looks like there's no way to sniff the top of the standings until Wake comes to Death Valley.

So, let's get ready and obliterate whoever stands in our way between now and then!

We have to win out to win the division. No doubt about that. Then hope State loses some games. Wake beats State. We beat Wake. Then State has to lose one more game. Pretty simple math.

I'm not sure State would have to lose another game. If we all sit with 1 conference loss, it's a 3-way tie and we'll get down to who beat who else in the conference for the tiebreaker. It's much easier for us if NC St loses 2, but we aren't out of it if they only lose 1.

Oct 10, 2021, 9:12 AM

If Wake runs the conference table other than us, then we would be in a 3 way tie. Don't know how those tie breakers work, but I don't think that NC State having to lose twice is a given. Long way to go until then, though.

I've said it before and still believe NC State is going to lose 2 Conference games. If the Tigers take care of business, the WF showdown is a possibility.

Oct 10, 2021, 2:10 PM

Then we’ll be ranked higher than NCSU for sure and probably WF too due to the late head to head. Also could see BC beating WF so may need 2 NCSU losses in that case but I really think NCSU is a 5-3 type ACC team and won’t be in the ACCCG regardless

NCSU will lose 3 more. It is a Doeren coached team after all. They aren't good enough to run the table. Only Clemson is, and then only if it plays near its potential.

Wake & UNC have scheduled each other as non-conference opponents….


Oct 10, 2021, 5:05 PM

Since you can go several years without playing someone from the other division…they decided to schedule one another outside of conference play in some of the years they don’t play.

It will be really confusing if they lose that game and are still undefeated in conference play….t-net heads will be spinning then.

A three-way tie between Wake Forest, North Carolina State, and Clemson if it happened should be settled by the first tiebreaker criteria for a three-way tie.

Three-Team (or More) Team Tie:
(Once a team is eliminated from the tie, the tie-breaker procedures restart for the remaining teams. If the three (or more) team tie can be reduced to two teams, the two-team tiebreaker format
will then be applied.)

1. Combined head-to-head win percentage among the tied teams.
2. Win percentage of the tied teams within the division.
3. Head-to-head competition versus the team within the division with the best overall (divisional and non-divisional) Conference win percentage, and proceeding through the division. Multiple ties within the division will be broken first to last, using the league’s tie-breaker policies.
4. Combined win percentage versus all common non-divisional opponents.
5. Overall win percentage versus non-divisional opponents.
6. Win percentage versus common non-divisional opponents based upon their order of finish (overall win percentage) and proceeding through other common non-divisional opponents based upon their divisional order of finish.
7. The tied team with the higher ranking by the Team Rating Score metric provided by SportSource Analytics following the conclusion of regular season games.
8. The representative shall be chosen by a draw as administered by the Commissioner or the Commissioner’s designee.

if CU, WF and NCSU are all 7-1 in the conf then that means


Oct 11, 2021, 1:59 PM

each were 1-1 against each other. All 3 teams would still be tied until you hit tie breaker # 7 which is the rating.... Clemson would likely be 1st with the possibility of WF edging us. NCSU probably has zero chance in that scenario. This isn't rocket science.

If they are all tied at 6-2 and each have a loss to one another then it matters who the other loss were against(division vs non-division foes).

Louavull might be what we need. They have JUST enough offensive firepower with their QB to beat most teams on any given Saturday. Of course they could so do the same to us, making this whole exercise in fact moot.

Atlantic being 6-2 or 5-3. I don't think NCSU is capable of going 7-1 -probably 5-3 at best IMO. But if our O doesn't improve then we may be in similar situation. That leaves WF and BC - I think 6-2 might be the worst for WF - they are our biggest threat IMO. It will likely be a must win game regardless of what happens in the others.

I think people are forgetting what type of conf record has won the divisions in the past. There have been plenty of 5-3/6-2 type winners. And even during this amazing run, we have been to the ACC champ 3 times with 1 conf loss. Everyone acts like we've been undefeated every year.
