We've beaten them 2x in a row, 4 of the last 5, and are 18-6 against them since 1998. Who gives an eff what they think, they suck.

TFG making a comeback?
No way!

But no. UNC doesn't suck because of gt upsetting them.

Why unc at HC matters ? They are ahead of gt in the "who goes to the big tv league" when the tv guys break up the ncaa. Clem, mia, fsu are a lock. Unc is next and we currently are not relevant

Why are they ahead of gt?
Sure they have massively better brand, money flow, and way less debt.

But thats not what tv guys look at. They want eyes on tv = watchability I think you will agree that at every level of football the full season "watchability" of a team is over 90% about who has the BEST qb. The nfl draft is where teams bet big money on the Best Qb. 15 years ago unc had a guy named gannon get drafted. In 22 they had Sam Howell go as NUMBER 1 pick. A few years before that Mitch Tribiski (sic) was drafted.
Now they have Maye who as a freshman thru for 35 tds and 7 int. INSTEAD OF PORTAL NIL OUT, HE STAYED AT UNC. In 23 he is chasing the Hiesman and being the top draft pick. (Imo, they should be proud of their ability to put great qbs on field. Admit it. If were doing that well w qbs, we would be damn obnoxious. )

But back to what matters at homecoming.
They will have the stud qb and it will draw a big tv audience. If gt has been doing well , it could be a big hype tv match up.


We must do something to erase the 100-0 and the RED OUT UGA game from TV guys minds. At homecoming we can impress them with a FULL and LOUD BDS as gt's also puts up big numbers.

We can take a major step back to being relevant by showing gt has a very good qb

Howell was a 5th round pick, nowhere close to #1. Trubisky went #2 overall so I think you are mixing him and Howell up.

They suck because they are generally not a good football team. They play a downy soft soft schedule to inflate their win loss record (see Brown complaining about their schedule this year), and still only have 2 seasons of 9 wins or more, and 6 seasons of 3 wins or less since 1998. For comparison, we have 7 seasons of 9 wins or more and 4 seasons of 3 wins (none less) in the same span. Their best wins last year were against Duke and Pitt - shocker, we also beat Duke and Pitt. They lost every big game on their schedule (Clemson, NC State, Notre Dame, and Oregon).

Some of y'all have this really weird obsession with putting UNC on a pedestal, and they have done absolutely nothing to deserve that.

Yea got them backwards. The other guy was tj yates in 2011 in 9 th round. He came to the Texans and was not good on a bad team. In 2024 unc will have its 4th qb drafted in 14 years. U guys are hard to impress. Yea, they don't get all they should out of talent- Mack Brown left Texas for that - reason = wasting e talent or playing wrong player. I hope you are right and they play soft at homecoming. Would love to get a big win. If they kick us around, what would that say about gt.
