Week 1 Other Games

Postby claver2010 on Sat Sep 12, 2020 10:29 am

would've been a gorgeous day for a tailgate today

i'd take cuse against the spread, that's a lot of points for a unc team that went 7-6

good job on the acc for getting this underway

Va-va tech postponed due to covid outbreak at va tech

EDIT. I think I would take UNC to cover even at -23. Syracuse OL is supposed to be an absolute joke this year and UNC is gonna be a great team this year.

UNC proving that all that pre-season hype was just that...hype. This is an utterly awful Cuse team. They should be up by 3 TDs.

Baby blue has almost twice as many yards offensively than does the Orange. And yet, 3 turnovers and we have a close, shitty game. UNC should be killing this team. If they are not careful, they could lose their opener to a team that will go 3-8.

Pretty weird seeing the ACC logo on ND's field and their players' jerseys. Apparently only 20% capacity at the stadium, but watching on TV it looks to me like a lot more than that.

Duke is going to be a tougher game than we probably expected. They are moving the ball well and their defense has pretty much shut down ND's running game.

Arkansas State has a wide receiver who is so good, he could play in the NFL right now. He is the sole reason why they beat K-State in Manhattan today.

Duke isn't the way they used to be in football. They are just not a pushover anymore. Now they are not going to win the ACC, but they are "average."

I came close to predicting an L for that one. Never assumed it was going to be easy, especially with Brice joining their team. That being said, it wouldn't shock me if ND pulls away in the second half.

I was surprised to see so many in the stadium. We should at least allow family next week.

Notre Dame just isn't that good. Good enough to get 8 wins in the ACC, but not blowing out BC good. The people that thought UNC were going to be world beaters make me laugh.

I believe it's a Massachusetts restriction, not BC. Can't allow fans until Baker says it's okay.

yes need the papal blessing from the leader of the state that has the 3rd highest fatality rate but 'believes in science' and 'acknowledges the virus'.

there is zero reason why students shouldn't be able to go to the game on saturday

Book looks very unimpressive.

Tackling in general has been pretty bad

Duke is not a great team, but no pushover either. Road game, Hafley's first game, Jurk's first game, on the road. Their D played well against ND most of the game, their QB is highly-regarded and they have a good coach. But their D-Line is small and looks worn down now in the 4th qtr. Hopefully the BC O-Line can control the game.

FWIW I love the 10 conference games! Should do it every year...

Also: Texas State playing much worse so far this week, down big at half at home vs. UTSA.

Yeah, I mean it's not like BC isn't getting enough bad press for the handling of COVID on campus, what's a little more superspreading!

Absolutely, students should be allowed against Texas State along with season ticket holders at least getting the right to use 2 tickets apiece for the October games and 50% capacity for November games.

My guess, Baker says no for the entire season. He has nothing to gain politically by doing so and much to lose if he allows fans and a breakout occurs.

Regardless, there have been thousands of students nationwide that have tested positive and everyone is fine. CDC also updated its statistics showing that only 6% of COVID deaths in the U.S. were solely caused by COVID. It's all so stupid. It's not even as bad as the flu right now: https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/12641004/ ... harebarweb

It would not shock me if 48 states go red in November and MA is one of two blue states. People here are so fucking stupid.

I stand by my previous assertion that Dino Babers is a black Daz. 23-26 record at Cuse. But the media loves him because a) he's black and b) he gives these amazing pre-game speeches and dances in the locker room when he manages to win one of his games which is great for television.

The Globe is writing articles about what a shitty job BC is doing testing. Quotes from parents. One quarter the tests of other schools. But hell, let the swim team do concessions! It's all Baker's fault.

Non sequiturs aside, I'm fine with letting everyone get it. But stop pretending what Massachusetts is doing isn't working or that BC is not getting hammered for shitty testing protocols. Actual students are upset about the swimming and diving thing.

Opening up Alumni now would be a PR nightmare only corners would approve.
