    Truly. I just caught this one late. I did have Duke to win. Duke should beat them at home. I didn't know about UNC and FSU. FSU has some big guys and at home. Snaer is a special player.

    Speak for yourself - I'll be happy if Carolina brings it to Tallahassee and plays a good game. What happens in Raleigh has no bearing on Carolina, until they go to the PNC to play State.

    This is the most honest post I've ever seen by you - hats off to you, sir. I thought State would win before Kelly was out with an injury. Not saying Duke is bad, just that this is State's year to win, especially at the PNC.

    +1...Monday morning QBs always have the answers, Hokie. :)

    You can id problems just from watching the game (poor shooting, rebounding) but the coaches have the advantage of looking at game film to zero in on other problems. I think the Heels get it done today - must win for 'em. They have talent obviously, just comes down to intensity, confidence/execution. They need a short memory at this point if they're gonna turn their season around.

    The only sensible comment on this one tonight.

    UVA and Miami are two ACC teams that like to keep the pace slow. UNC played into this again last night. UVA controlled them as we all know. When a 6'11" player from any team that can drive to the basket and slam it without not one player to challenge him is not right. Take a darn charge. Foul him. Save two points when being down. No excuse for these talented players...Paige showed some skills last night. Some of his passes kept UNC in this one late.

    Is to play the full 40 minutes. After playing fairly well for 33 minutes, they reverted to street ball for the final 7. As slowly as the pace has been for their past couple of games, there is no excuse for being tired and giving up those uncontested shots. If they do the same on Saturday, it will be FSU by 25.

    GO HEELS!!

    FSU will watch the tape of UNC last night. They will move the ball on offense to see if UNC can shift. Miami exposed this last night. UNC didn't have energy to stop them after getting down by 9 a few times. It looked like a few players gave up. Best guess. Go UNC. Win this one.

    I would venture to guess that a few at UNC has/have already told Roy what is going wrong up there per one writer. HA HA. Two weeks from now UNC may get it straight.

    Well, you're a troll. But, good news for you, State is going to beat puke. Bank it!

    All Carolina needs is for either state college or dook to LOSE tomorrow.

    Come Sunday we'll be happy either way LOL!!!

    Already setting up the excuses. Not a good strategy and definitely does not make you look good. Particularly with the million posts you have done on the Carolina site. Typical I guess from what I have seen on here the past couple of weeks.

    Perhaps you should give Roy a call, Fill him in on what he`s doing wrong HAHAHAHA

  • VT1994Hokie Jan 11, 2013

    I have been writing this for a long time. Roy wins with race horses. Losing 4 starters to the Pros would be tough on any team. However, Roy has more AA's than most anyone out there still. Did they not learn in practice since they arrived on campus? Don't they teach them how other teams run an offense or defense? UNC looked like they were going through the motions at times last night, and this entire season. No energy. Brow beating should be done in practice. Maybe Roy does this, I don't know. All that I know is that Miami exposed UNC after half-time.

    Playing at a much improved FSU will make a statement for UNC.

    I expect no such thing. I'm afraid Duke rains down the threes, and that opens up Plumlee for domination in the middle.

    Or State could win. I figure either team can win. I'm hoping for the best, but expecting nothing.

    The good thing is if State DOES lose to the #1 team in the nation, it's not a "bad loss" for us.

    But I expect to take my licks if State loses just the same. :)

    You know...if Gott had 8/10 games against K, I would say this would be a toss-up. But he doesn't. Gott can only quess what K has in store for State (the reverse could apply) and K has been at this a LOT longer. Duke by 7. Alex will hit at least 3 beyond the arc just to honor Kelly.

    Don't even try to back out. If Dook wins, you get it just as much as the other State Fans. MAN UP! You know you expect State to win!

    What Carolina needs......... is another team meeting called by Bullock. Heh heh!

    (Sorry, I had to talk a LITTLE smack before State takes their licks against Duke!)
