    No one choked any worse than the Hokies did this year. Logan Thomas, O'Cain, Steinspring, and Beamer. He allowed this mess to continue.

    he went 5-3 in the ACC with two losses by 4 points. In his first year.

    That was part of his problem.

    We had Miami on the ropes (game tied, driving for the go-ahead TD and blew it when our offense had been doing very well prior to that...), we blew a 10-point 4th quarter lead and then kicked to Gio, and then we got smashed on our homecoming by one of the worst teams in the league.

    Had UNC been eligible , they would have won a three-way tiebreaker with Miami and Ga. Tech. Since UNC was not eligible, Miami is the division winner because they beat Ga. Tech in the regular season.

    That's the point I was trying to get across, I just used Butch as an example because he was the first one to come to mind.

    And I may be mistaken, but how is Miami the real Coastal champion? According to the News and Observer, Fedora, Renner, and Highsmith, UNC won.

    "Had the Tar Heels been eligible for the postseason, they would have won a three-way tiebreaker among 5-3 teams and faced Florida State for the title in Charlotte next weekend."

    It only makes sense that the winner of your division didn't play either of those teams."

    Miami, the real winner of the Coastal, did play FSU albeit they lost, as did GT.

    #1 - That's what i said, "Neither team appeared on our schedule, both are in the other division."

    #2 - I wasn't thumping anything. I merely replied to TBK's post saying Larry went 12-2 in C-usa.

    No chest thumping, cv...you play who is on your schedule.

    WRT this past season, UNC performed well enough to mathematically win their division -- which equates to something that quite a few other schools have not accomplished since the ACC went to split divisions.

    Exactly. Neither team appeared on your schedule. I'm not knocking Fedora for it, it wasn't his decision. However to go around thumping your chest about your ACC record without playing FSU or Clemson is misleading. Look at the other members of your division, and how they faired against them..

    GT - L to Clemson
    Duke - L to Clemson, L to FSU
    VT - L to Clemson, L to FSU
    Miami - L to FSU

    The Coastal went 0-6 against FSU and Clemson. It only makes sense that the winner of your division didn't play either of those teams.
