Only one team can have a bye week....except when both teams have byes.....try to keep upI hope the ACC does right and stops giving a lot of GT's opponents bye weeks before they play Georgia Tech. Then again they may not mean much anymore since GT has a new head coach in Geoff Collins who will be running a new style of offense.
Whats the over/under on excessive Bye weeks before us? In CPJs 11 years, our ACC opponents got 22 Bye weeks before us?
Personally, I'm anticipating the unicorn - we get 1, and our opponents only get 1. We will see...
Will we still get screwed with CPJ gone now??
Will Duke have a bye week before us??
Will Miami continue to underachieve?
Will we get 10 noon kickoff games??
It took a while but there's finally been a rule put in place. No team in the conference will have more than 1 conference opponent who has a by week before their game.
I think this gets canceled out if both teams have a by week at the same time.
For example: we could have a by week and VT have a by week and then we play, but then our next game play Duke who had a by week while we were playing VT. In this case we still only played 1 opponent who had extra time off against us.
Lol ok, but everyone else is getting the same kind of screwed. If Duke/UNC are the only teams who get no by's scheduled before them then I'll possibly buy into your theory.Last year we got our 1 Bye week. Before Virginia Tech. Both Virginia Tech and Duke had a Bye week before us. We had some years where THREE teams had Bye weeks before playing us.
They didn’t fix or stop the problem - they just put a ceiling on how much they could screw us...and they’re still maxing it out.

The rule didn't go into place until last year. Yes, I agree in the past we specifically got screwed on this issue. However, as of last year, it's pretty dang even for everyone. You seem to have a complex about this.Huh? That’s false. 2 years ago for example, Clemson didn’t have a single ACC opponent who had a week off before playing them. We had three. Everybody else is NOT getting the same fairness in scheduling.

I’m just giving you the facts. What you said is what I just said - they didn’t stop or fix the problem, they just put a ceiling on how bad it could be. So last year we got less screwed.
And it matters because it hugely negatively impacted our win/loss record. It cost us 1 extra win and 1 extra loss per year on average. That’s huge. And something the rest of the conference didn’t have to deal with.
With our conditioning team I think we will be fine.Let’s get miami late in the year... it’s hot down there
FIFY (Bold). Non-conf dates already published.The way the calendar year works out this year, there is an extra week of the season meaning everyone should get 2 BYE weeks. Considering our first game is a Thursday night matchup, we should have 3 Saturdays off between August 28th (@Clemson) and November 30 (Georgia).
Ideally, our schedule looks something like this (I believe the first 4 games are already set dates)
8/28 (Thurs) @ Clemson
9/7 Home vs USF
9/14 Home vs Citadel
9/21 TBD or BYE
9/28 @ Temple
10/5 @ Miami
10/12 Home vs Pitt
10/19 Home vs NC State (Homecoming)
10/26 @ UVA
11/2 Home vs UNC
11/16 @ Duke
11/23 Home vs VT
11/30 Home vs uga
With this schedule, you get a break after the first 4 games, then a tough game at Miami followed by 4 very winnable games heading into the next BYE week. Rest up for one more road trip before finishing strong at home.
