NCAA Football- UNC beats Miami


 Share

Recommended Posts

All I have to say is "Wow"

I'm an avid Carolina fan, and neither I nor anyone else figured that UNC would beat Miami last night. But, with 4 seconds left, and the game at 28-28, UNC hit a field goal, winning the game 31-28. Since this was their first victory over a Top 5 team, almost the entire staduim charged the field, taking down both goalposts at Kenan Stadium.

Great Job, Carolina!

All I have to say to Miami is.... Welcome to the ACC

Bigups to Carolina.

probably couldn't have put it better myself! Couldn't have been better for Miami to lose to such a team.

Make that another, "Wow!!" Unbelievable. After reading this, I had to go see the top 25 poll. Can't believe Michigan moved up 2 spots after that game against MSU. The Spartans should've had that game.

Looks like OU will have another tough one next weekend in College Station. Does anyone smell an upset? Another upset that can occur is Notre Dame over Tennessee. The fighting Irish are pretty good.

i hope OU goes down...i'm sick of listening to the sooner fans...

i hope USC loses too...

if quinn is playing well, and they can run a little, ND could beat tenn. tenn got whooped by auburn...

Great job for UNC. My team from back home helped us out :D

As for you BroChaos, your attitude towards other teams is pretty bad. I hear a LOT of Michigan fans whining, but I don't complain. I think they are better than they are ranked and I hope they get a chance to prove how good they really are. Granted there are fans from both sides that like to whine and complain, you should still be the bigger man and not fall into their trap and become negative about the entire program. There are a lot of cocky sooner fans, just ignore them, everyone has fans like that, your team included ;).

Anyway, I have tremendous respect for just about any team that is good enough to be in the rankings, it's not easy. I'm pretty worried about next weekend, if we don't focus Texas A&M could definatly get knocked off by them. Sure they lost to Baylor last weekend but trust me, they are focusing on us and not little teams along the way. I'll be there hoping for the best :)

hehe, trash talking isn't fun when you act like that though :p

i'm sorry, i spend too much time on the espn boards, it's a crazy over there...

but everyone is talking smack about the big 10 this year, and it's frustrating.

at least i don't have to worry about having any heart attacks next week, as mich has the week off.

but we definitely need some more upsets...too many undefeated teams right now.

to make this interesting, we should give our top 10 rankings and top 5 heisman candidates...

1. Auburn

2. Oklahoma

3. USC

4. Wisconsin

5. Cal

6. Utah

7. Michigan

8. Tennessee

9. Georgia

10. Texas

tennessee beat georgia, it should be that way in the rankings.

texas has the 107 out of 117 ranked offense. anyone who can stop the run can beat texas

miami almost gives up 500ypg on average.

heisman:

1. peterson

2. braylon edwards

3. leinart

now, personally, i think peterson will have a good game, and that will end his run. also, mike hart, if you look at total yards, has just as good numbers, but he's not even being mentioned...

no way white should win, after he showed us his choking skills the last two games of last year.

Well I have class in the morning so I can't go through it all, but for my top 3 I would have to agree with most polls right now in saying:

1. USC

2. Oklahoma

3. Auburn

I think that Auburn is good, but I don't think they can really compare to USC and OU. I have heard people who think SEC is the hardest conference but I can never imagine that being true. Big 12 is almost always the hardest conference to be in, and USC is just really damn strong. I think USC and OU need to play in the Orange Bowl.

As for my heisman I don't have a list but I definatly think it's Adrian Peterson. I don't think anyone can even compare to the season he is having, especially as a freshman. Why can't a freshman win? I think a freshman who is as good/better than a senior or so is BETTER. I defiantly do agree that it's not going to be White again this year. Personally (and don't tell anyone here I said this) I don't think Jason White is that good. If we didn't have the solid offensive front line in front of him he would be toast. I will say that he can throw a damn accurate pass MOST of the time. Anyway, to bed with me, class awaits following my slumber.

the only reason i have a bias against the big 12 being tough this year is after your bowl performance last year. tex, ksu, and ok all lost. auburn seems to be the most consistent, with their closest game coming against then ranked #4 LSU.

honestly, if you are gonna mention peterson, imo, you have to mention hart. just look at the numbers. hart has ran for 3 straight 200+ yard games.

hart:

1160 rushing 5td

174 receiving 1td

total 1334 yds with 6 tds

peterson:

1272 rushing 8td

6 receiving 0td

total 1278 yds with 8tds

judging by those stats, how do not even give hart a nod?? oh, and don't forget, hart has a freshman qb passing the ball, while peterson has a heisman trophy winner...

also, i don't have the numbers in front of me, but i can get them later, on average, michigan plays against better run defenses.

True, like I said, I was in a hurry to get into bed. Hart has had an incredible season as well with his 200 yard games. They are both playing incredibly but I would have to give it to AP over Hart right now. Is that because his stats are a little better or maybe just because he's a personal friend of mine... ahh who knows :p

so all the close games USC has had doesn't bother you guys at all?

why do you put bush ahead of leinart?

if USC lost bush, would they still win? or if they lost leinart, would they still win?

@Betaz, yeah, i put peterson above hart too, it just bugs me that nobody even mentions hart...at least give the kid a nod, ya know?

smith is doing crazy good, it's just too bad that the utes and boise st. don't play anyone good during a season. if the utes make it to a bcs bowl (they are still #6 as of this week) they MUST play good or they are gonna ruin the argument for all their supporters...

Not at all, because they're consistent and all teams have close games.

Bush is 3rd in the nation is all-purpose yards. He runs the ball, catches the ball, returns punts, and returns kickoffs. What else can you ask for? Also, did you forget if it wasn't for Bush, they would've probably lost to Virginia Tech?

I also agree Smith is an awesome QB. However, since he's not playing for a known team, he may not win it.
