    LOL...i guess you deserved that after all the 41-10 postings of the past, and a 13-0 pasting last year....congrats on your best win of the year, against NCSU(6-4)...too bad you lost to wfu and duke to lose the 'state championship'

    Nope. I had thought UNC only had 5 wins so far. My mistake.

    Both teams are 6-4 so how exactly do they have more wins ???
    Are you saying the NC State defense is responsible for more State wins than the UNC defense is for the UNC wins. I thought the game was played in 3 phases not just one. Underperforming in just one phase could cost a team a game but excelling in the other phases could make up for that.

    you cant make that statement, at this point...if State wins out from here, then you can say that....how can you say any team is the 'best' team with 3 games remaining?

  • swray001 Nov 12, 2012

    States best team under Tom O'brien was last years team. He never said this years team was the best, he said this team had more personel, at all positions to substitute with.

    Fact: As porous as UNC's D is, it still remains ahead (better) than NCSU in total defense.

    Nothing hypocritical about it. It was a good play. It staved off a 6th straight wolfpack victory. So you have 1 highlight reel play. How many from other teams have you helped get on there? I'm going out on limb here and saying more than 1. LOL!

    You are claiming that UNC helps opposing teams get onto sportscenter, when you own team gave UNC the #1 play in CFB that week on ESPN. Ouch. Hypocrisy is a beeeatch, isn't it?

    Fedora has so far managed to equal TOB's "best team yet" during his first year at the helm.

    That makes N.C. State's position much more sad than UNC's.

    Also: last year Brady Hoke led Michigan to a 10-win season as a first year coach while installing a new system and using somebody else's recruits. Get back to me when your team comes anywhere near that mark.

    Congrats on likely making the Belk Bowl. Actually, I'm happy that TOB's last game at NC State will be a bowl game. Send the guy off right. Because, with the one and two-star recruits that he'll be leaving you with, that will probably be the last bowl game that talentless roster sees in a while.

    Six-plus wins in his first season while playing with someone else's recruits and implementing an entire new system...not too shabby. That, and he's been tearing it up on the recruiting trail.

    Oh, and you lost to us. And probably lost your head coach as a result. Get some.

    State fans are laughing at the state of your program. We don't care about Fedora. Aside from beating up on FCS teams, you guys haven't done much this season. IN B4 WE BEAT YOU GUYS. Yeah at the last second. Not exactly domination. About the only thing fedora's team has done well this season is help opposing offenses make the sportscenter highlight reels.

  • chapelthrillv1 Nov 12, 2012

    State fans better hope that Fedora is gone within three years, as the WolpAggies are currently winless against the hat.

  • Das Thorpedo Nov 12, 2012
    Veteran

    Well regardless, this gives me more ammo in my "Fedora will be gone within 3 years" theory. He is really rich rod lite. Case in point:

    A) Spread offense that can shoot out the lights (check)
    B) Explosive running back (check)
    C) Gimmick defense that can't stop a middle school team (check)
    D) NCAA violations (N/A)
    E) Runs over FCS teams (check)
    F) Chokes in big games (check)
    G) Embarasses the school in bowl games (N/A) H) Dual threat QB (N/A)

    2 more years to go!

  • SpartanDude Nov 12, 2012

    It would be a reasonable assumption that the 4-2-5 defense is part of coach Fedora's system for UNC. He would have selected a DC to implement the system. So in short, yes, it's his D.
