With the Duke game this Saturday, we’ve actually had a chance to take a breath this week. And what a week we’ve had.
If you didn’t notice, we made a big move here to Bloguin. Most of this week was spent trying to figure out what the hell we had to do to get something to post right. We’ll be tinkering with things over the next days/months/years to get things awesome*.
*seriously, if you have a suggestion on anything from the layout to the color scheme, let us know.
We’d like to phone in the preview this week, as is often the case when we play middle school teams. But alas, our 14-3 victory (with a 4th quarter pick-six) in last year’s matchup makes this a scary game.
Ok, that may be a little much. I mean, it’s not Goosebumps scary. But then again, nothing really is.
The line on this game is 17…… WHAT!!
We know last year sucked, but before that, our smallest margin of victory since 2004 was 24. If anything, ol’ Stiney should take this as a sign that NO one has confidence in him. Even after last week’s above average play calling, we still don’t.
The Bad Guys
Name one guy on Duke. No, Greg Paulus is playing for a completely different shitty team now. Though we think we’ll use this opportunity for…
Ah yes, good times.
As for the actual team, well, they lost to freaking Richmond. Sure they are coming off a 49-14 win, complete with almost 500 yards of offense. But it was against the North Carolina Central Anonymouses. The team is actually IN Durham, which meant there were more NCCU fans at the game than Duke fans.
The Blue Devils are 2-2, with a daunting schedule ahead. They only have one gimmie game left. Take a wild guess who that’s against...
They apparently have some injuries or something. Whatevs. No one cares.
Man, we are soooo pumped about this team. We could watch that Miami game 50 times this week and it would still be just as awesome, just like Happy Gilmore.
There’s not too much to say about our boys. Ryan Williams is a pimp. Tyrod is leading like we knew he could. And Matt Reidy is apparently a golden god.
"[Reidy] just said he's not going to hang out with us anymore now that he knows what the end zone is like," outside linebacker Cody Grimm cracked Tuesday.
Cody wasn’t all that impressed though.
"Pretty much everyone in this room could make that play," cracked Grimm, peering at a roomful of rather unathletic-looking media members.
Everyone calm down. They’re just joking.
We all joke about this game being easy, but in reality we’re always nervous. That’s what happens when you’ve watched your team lose to Temple. On homecoming.
And just thinking about the five-turnover awfulness of last year’s game makes us want to puke.
Coming off such a huge win, this game could be letdown city. We say that we should run the ball, control the clock, and blitz blitz blitz. Granted, we say this for every game, but you get the idea.
We need to win big. There is no running up the score in ACC play. Win by 100, no one cares. Just get this done.
Replacement Offensive Coordinator of the Week
Last week’s play calling was, in actuality, the best we’ve seen from Voldemort since… forever. 24 offensive points in the rain? Unreal.
That said, he still needs to go.
And we need someone this game that is focused. It’s easy to be focused for a big game. But for a game you’re supposed to win, it’s easy to let your guard down.
We need a disciplined leader. Someone who can keep a bunch of young kick-ass fellas in line.
You guessed it.
The dude gets shit done.
LET'S GO HOKIES!!!
