GT at #2?***

NC State and VT have looked pretty turrible this year. GT always gives us problems.

New to being a Tiger fan?***

GT was blown out by 3 TDs by a mid-major in Atlanta.

I'm sorry but, there's nothing anyone can say to convince me that GT is the 2nd toughest opponent we have left.

How about 5 of the last 6 and triple option?***

None of those six happened this year

we have no idea what to expect from this defense against the triple option, and the GT defense is 70th in yards and 69th in points allowed without having faced anything like what they'll see on Saturday.

We lose if we beat ourselves. That's the only way.

I agree. We will crush Georgia Tech. ***

GT will give us a game.***

The toughest game is always....

Posted: Oct 2, 2012 8:27 PM

the next one.

ncstate should be #2.....

Posted: Oct 2, 2012 8:33 PM

they gave umi all they could handle at Miami. Miami also barely got by gt. Somehow Miami is 4-1. There D is below average.

ncstate and gt are so close at 2 and 3 it's a toss up.

What happened to vt? They seem to have taken a step back. You can bet they want to beat us after last year's two defeats.

Maryland has a great defense and a bad offense. One of the few teams that held wvu from scoring a million tds. btw, wvu's offense is amazing and their defense is pitiful. And yet they have a perfect record.

#2 through #5 I see as close scoring games. I just hope we can outscore them all.

I thought about State at 2. Then I thought about the triple

Until Venables proves to me he can stop it, I have GT at 2.

I worry about us blowing assignments on the option.....

Posted: Oct 2, 2012 8:59 PM

but then I think about Rick Stockstill and his boys from mtsu just mashing gt last weekend. I'll bet the tension between Johnson and Groh could be felt this week.

I don't believe gt's defense can stop our O.

Duke is prob the 2nd best team on that list*****

SC is not the toughest because the game is so far away in

Posted: Oct 2, 2012 9:51 PM

the season. I agree that the toughest is the next one. Too early to tell what Coot team we'll face then as opposed to now. They haven't played any bruisers yet so injuries aren't as much of a factor now as it will be then. Point is we're not facing this week's Coot team in Nov.


Re: SC is not the toughest because the game is so far away in

Posted: Oct 2, 2012 9:58 PM

Good point.. the way this year is going so far I would be at least a little surprised if Connor Shaw makes it through this 3 game stretch alive

I say that game being played is always the toughest...

Posted: Oct 2, 2012 9:59 PM

just saying. Kinda hard to rate them. Either team could come out flat and not ready on a given saturday.


Re: Rating our toughest games.

I'd put Wake (because it's a Thursday night on the road) and Duke (because they're getting better and it's a road game) over the others because we have home advantage.

I can agree with that. Wake, Thursday night... scares me.***

Posted: Oct 2, 2012 10:09 PM

2 GT must stop the option
3 VT will improve
4 NCST history of finishing strong
5 @ Duke better than some think
6 @ Wake Thursday night yuk
7 Maryland any game is loseable this probably the easiest though.

other than south carolina.. those are all pitiful compettion. this g ###### acc is holding this program back so badly. look what being in sec has done for usuc. they went from our punching bags to to effin top ten ranked team and mention in the same breath as ga fla and bama just beacause they play those others. i hate the acc.. we will NEVER be accepted by the sports media as a force until we dont have to play the likes of duke w.f. maryland and all the other weak ### acc

Move Maryland to the last one. They are god awful! They lost to uconn...nuff said!

Re: Rating our toughest games.

Posted: Oct 3, 2012 12:14 AM

Clemson will go some what missing in the media for the next 6 or 7 weeks while playing this Weak ACC schedule.
If they continue to win out they will pop out at the end and re join the national media's coverage right before Thanksgiving.The trick will be to win while no one is paying attention!

GT lost to Middle Tennessee. We shouldn't lose but one more.

Re: Rating our toughest games.

Posted: Oct 3, 2012 12:14 AM

Well at least this ain't their schedule. We shouldn't lose but one more game.


Posted: Oct 3, 2012 12:51 AM

I see a few close games on that schedule but we blow the coots out come November.
