    About time we start a thread with news that may impact us down the line.

    Couple items off the bat:
    Virginian-Pilot: Virginia Tech names redshirt freshman Josh Jackson as starting QB for season opener
    Miami Herald: UM QB race narrowing, with Evan Shirreffs, Malik Rosier praised

    I think most people think Tech will be rebuilding since we're replacing #5.
    Several of my mutt friends assume this.

    Well, they're not exactly wrong. We don't even know so the starter is yet. While we think the future is bright, fact is we're replacing a dynamic QB who is being considered as an NFL wr. He could change the game in one play. We're nowhere close to that yet. Everyone thinks that our salvation is an experienced OL and an improving D. Recent history has shown that our success depends on the O and that starts with the guy under center. I'm hopeful but not convinced.

    Even if we go 5-7, I think UNC is a game we will win. They have a lot of holes to fill, and it is time to end their winning streak. I don't see the Tarheels as much of threat to win the division. When you go game by game, the Coastal is looking like another round robin year with everyone getting at least two losses. As always, ever week will be crucial.

    The UNC article is intriguing. This is a team that ALWAYS has talent and generally finds ways to underachieve. The best team this year in North Carolina (the state) will not be UNC but NC State. I see them as a notch below Miami and Virginia Tech. In other words, similar to us in being a "dark horse" candidate in what is usually a topsy turvy Coastal division that any one of several teams could win. We will see.

    Shouldn't the NCAA ruling about UNC come out in mid to late September. They might be a demoralized group when they come to ATL.

    I get irritated just thinking about UNC talking about winning this and winning that. They should be banned from football and basketball for several years.

    The Heels pretty much destroyed everybody last year once they caught fire. Unfortunately, that was with us.

    I doubt that'll happen this year. Too many holes to fill.

    Unfortunately, I feel like Miami will be a true ACC/NC contender under Richt. I can definitely see them having minimum 10 win seasons. Like it or not, he is a good coach. Im just glad he isnt at georgia.
