While normally I'd want State to win more than FSU, I was hoping that there might actually be a title contender from the ACC this year for the first time in a long time. I guess it still is not meant to be...obviously, shocking upset win for the Pack.
We all go to N.C. State. Aroo!

FSU will collapse now per usual, hopefully we can be the next to upset them!

FSU, VPI and UVA had rough days in the triangle today, huh? Tobacco Road, home of the ACC football powerhouses.
Maybe we need to add some more football powerhouses to the conference in order to boost our chances....
As a Moo Dukie, I should be cheering this, but the conference just became completely irrelevant...again.

While it was one of the great days in the Triangle's football history -- seriously, I'd have to do some major research to discover when all three scored such significant wins (and all at home) on the same day.
On the other hand, it weas one of the worst days in modern ACC football history:
(1) NC State knocks FSU out of any chance of the BCS title game -- the ACC hasn't had a team even challenge for the game since FSU in 2000.
(2) Notre Dame just murders Miami, which is 3-0 in the ACC Coastal Division. In theiir two con-conference losses to ranked teams, Miami has been outscored 93-16.
(3) Boston College lost to Army -- an Army team that was winless and was trounced byv Stony Brook a week earlier.
The ACC is now 26-14 out of conference. That looks good until you break it down. The ACC is 4-9 against the BCS (1-1 against the Big Ten thanks to Penn State's field goal kicker; 1-1 against the SEC with a losing record to every other BCS conference, including the Big East). 11 iof those 26 wins have come against FCS teams, so the ACC is a mere 15-14 against FBS opponents.
What is the ACC's best non-cnference win?
Clemson over Auburn looked good at the time, but Auburn is now 2-4 and getting trampled by everybody.
I guess Virginia over Penn State is looking better, but that was a gift from a team whose kicker transfered (the guy that left looked awful for Texas last night) ... and it came the week agter Ohio tumped them worse than the Cavs.
After that, I don't know -- FSU over South Florida? NC State over UConn? Maryland over Temple? UNC has two lopsided wins over nobodies -- when they played a decent non-confrerence opponent, they crapped all over themselves at Louisville (okay they had a nice comeback, but were noncompetitive in the first half). I thought Duke's win over FIU was fairly impressive at the time, but they've collapsed this season.
This is embarrassing.
I had real mixed emotions about this. I live in West Raleigh, have a graduate degree from NCSU and like TOB.
But I also would like to have seen an ACC team remain relevant in the national title hunt past the first weekend in October.
South Carolina used to be in the ACC. Maybe we can adopt them.
State deserves major kudos for making big plays. But I was stunned at how conservative FSU became in the second half. It looked to me like they assumed a win at half-time and just put it in cruise control.
And we can also kiss Manuel's Heisman hopes goodbye. Not that Geno Smith is going to leave that door open for anyone else, anyway.
Not leaving until the game is over.
