Talking Points: Chapel Hill, we have a problem

Posted September 29, 2013

1. To paraphrase Silky Johnson from the "Player Hater's Ball," what can be said about North Carolina's defense that hasn't already been said about Afghanistan: It looks bombed out and depleted.

It's official! There is a five alarm red riot alert in Chapel Hill America!! To quote Vince Lombardi "what the hell's goin on out there!"

When asked if he needed to reevaluate expectations, LFed sighed, paused for awhile and gave stock answer. But it was clear he had to think.

Sr RB A.J. Blue on UNC's lack of focus: "Nobody expects to lose to ECU, especially us, so the complacency was definitely there"

And thanks to Shadrach for eliminating a spider that I was oblivious to crawling on a table between us

    55 points is not that much ...... in C-USA. Just trying to step up the ACCs game. That's all.

    The tarholes would've been better off letting the Chapel Hill High Tigers play against the Pirates. If the Pirates played the tarholes Monday thru Friday of next week, the tarholes get spanked 5 times in a row.

    It would not have mattered if Bernard and the others were still here...ECU dominated both the offensive and defensive lines of scrimmage. Say what you will about the missing players, THAT'S what secured this win and I for one, was glad to see it.

    ECU lost 15-10 to an average VT team.

    I think ECU is pretty good, but that's about it. Carolina made them look SPECIAL. But like Steve Logan said, ECU has an offense that is tailor-made to carve up Carolina's 4-2-5 gimmick defense. And that is exactly what happened. They didn't play over their heads. But they are also not that great. They looked like Alabama against Carolina. But they are not even close to Alabama.

    How about a dropped pass on 3rd and a mile for Richmond, instead of the made catch that led to a TD? How about one or two LESS turnovers in the red zone for State?

    Richmond made some huge plays to keep that game close and nearly win. And you ask for one more dropped pass from State? Please. It's not like we were playing awesome and eeked out the win. We played terribly that game and still found a way to win.

    It is what it is. A Wolfpack win over Richmond. We were better than them that day. They played over their heads and nearly stole one from us. But that's OK. As long as the right team wins.

    I'd rather play bad and win than to play good and lose (or play bad and lose, like your Holes have been doing!) :)
