    ACC Football Week 4

    Apologies to Bob Green for starting his thread early but I didn't see anywhere else to put this from a News and Observer article on this Saturday's game between App. St. and the Heels.

    "Wide receiver Corey Sutton, who was suspended for the first two games after a marijuana-related arrest in June, apparently will play Saturday. When asked about Sutton’s status, Drinkwitz said, “He’s ready to roll.”"

    Isn't that what got him in trouble in the first place?

    This is a dubious way to start a thread.

    Nice job, ACCN. That one is totally prime time worthy.

    It’s a meh week. The only two better games are on ABC and ESPN. So yeah, by default, this one is (the least un)worthy.

    Sagarin says the Clemson - Charlotte game should be a 50 point line. It may be fun to watch to see if Clemson can get to 70 points.
    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    Worth noting that UCF at Pitt is a big game and well worth watching. There are precious few times that UCF plays legit P5 teams and those contests are always a good measuring stick for this outsider program that has been trying to crash the P5 party for several years. A big win could set UCF up to be in the playoff conversation again and this is likely the toughest game left on their schedule. Win this and there is a darn good chance (at least 40%, I think) UCF goes undefeated.

    Absolutely agree, this should be a fun game. And UNC is only -3 hosting App. State. Both worth watching.

    And that one gets the ACCNX dumpster. I will not be surprised at all if the Heels come away with a two game losing streak.

    True, but it will probably get higher ratings than almost every other ACC-N game except Duke-ND.

    yeah, I think the Vegas odds are something like 44+ ...good weekend to focus on gardening and some unexpectedly warm (80s) and glorious weather...

    I agree. It's one of the two that I noted that is clearly a better matchup, and almost entirely because of UCF, not because of the ACC team. UCF *should* be in the playoff conversation if they win out; they will need help, however, in the form of bad and/or multiple losses by the traditional P5 powers currently expected to be in the mix.

    The jury is still out on Pittsburgh being better than Temple, Tulane, and Houston. Other than being a P5 school, Pittsburgh will need to build upon that close loss to PSU to end the season looking like one of UCF’s best wins (assuming it happens, which I’m guessing it does).

    Speaking of Tulane and Houston, The Tulane Tarheels had the craziest ending of the season so far last night in their win over Houston. (And when I tuned in, I was positive that Mack Brown had brought his team in for a surprise game.)
