UNC, ECU headed in opposite directions

Posted September 30, 2013

The spanking that the Pirates put on Chapel Hill Saturday is evidence of a team that is confident and can perform even better. The home team, though, needs to regroup in order to challenge in the ACC.

    The penalties called on Carolina were deserved - they did commit a lot of boneheaded penalties, and there's no excuse for that. Fedora needs to put an end to the penalties and demand discipline from his team.

    Right now, I'd have to agree that UNC and ECU are headed in opposite directions. Coach Ruff has done an excellent job in Greenville. Fedora needs time to build a team with his recruits, but the fact is that ECU was the better team by far last Saturday and deserved to win the game in a romp - tip of my hat to Coach Ruff and his team. Back to the drawing board for the Heels.

    Wow, it must really suck being a tarholes fan, huh? I hear Walmart is having a buy 1 get 4 free sale on all tarhole tee shirts...*lol*

    I did not know that the guy who "beat out" Marvin Austin on the Giants was a former ECU player! Regardless of the fact that I am a Tar Heel - through and through - and in spite of the game last Saturday - my comment about Austin being beat out by an ECU guy is "It could not have happened to "better" and more deserving guy (Austin)! I don't want to ever again see the likes of Austin and/or Greg Little in the Carolina uniform for ANY team... even if that would mean we never win again. Those two are the best examples of "class-LESS" and "unsportsmanlike" I've seen!

    I very much agree no matter the team.

    Will never forget the post-ECU press conference with Marvin and Butch. Marvin went on and on about E-C-Who and then raised his jersey and said Butch didn't recruit our players but they weren't good enough to wear the jersey. Butch just sat there and smiled and let him go on and on.

    And where is Marvin now? Giants cut him - because the starter in front of him was Linval Joseph, ECU graduate. What goes around, comes around.

    Amen! AMEN to the "lack of class in the Butchie era"!!! Marvin Austin and Greg Little are likely the most "class-LESS" players I have ever seen on a football field/team. I've seen nothing as bad as Austin or Little on this team, but I still have observed a few players on the team this year who sometimes seem more interested in the proverbial "trash-talking" and whatever to draw attention to themselves. Right in line with that... the number of personal fouls on Carolina players last Saturday was RIDICULOUS! And I'm NOT complaining about the officials. A personal foul is NEVER justifiable and is a self-serving, narcissistic act not consistent with being a member of a team!

    The "QB" question... I often find it interesting when prognosticators in a forum such as this and/or at the "local watering hole" emphatically state that "The best QB is not playing", obviously indicated that they believe someone "on the sidelines" is better and should be in the QB position "on the field". Do you know - have any idea - of how much study and planning goes into determining which players should be on the field? How much study of video is done from both practices and games? How much study and planning goes into planning for specific opponents each week? Football coaches, the head coach and all associate/assistant coaches - and there are a LOT of them, literally live with those players. They are with them during hours of practice each day on the field, they are inside in meetings with them and studying video with them, they are on buses and planes with them, in hotels, etc., etc. I sometimes wonder if the planning/preparation, etc. for a football game is close to the amount that went into D-Day in WWII !!! It is truly UNBELIEVABLE!!! That said... I believe that the coaches have the clear, best perspective on who is the best at QB or any position... NOT "fans" who only see the game on Saturday. Bryn Renner... not only has "very good numbers" - he is a "5th year" senior. You may have a freshman QB on the bench who can run faster, has much more agility/scrambling ability, can throw farther and "harder", etc., etc. - but does not have the maturity and decision-making ability that a 5th year senior with Renner's playing time has. It is "fun" to debate/discuss/argue about such things, but I will put my money on who the coach's believe is the best QB or player in any position!!! They have seen that player far - FAR - more than any of have... and it seems that "statistics" are kept on EVERYTHING... many of which we are not "privy to".

    Sorry, I should have been clearer, I meant you knew what it was like to be on the end of the UNC personal fouls. Saw much of the lack of class in the Butchie era.

    Yeah, it wasn't a JUST case of a QB picking apart the defense. ECU had a ton of rushing yardage, too. That shows they won the line of scrimmage. You're right about that, Kev.

    Carolina's got some big problems. They're capable of some big plays on offense sometimes, but they can't seem to put it together for a whole game.

    I think I'm gonna apply for the USC opening. Or UConn.
