    It will be below freezing at kickoff, low 24. Hope the heels freeze their bums off and lose big.

    There won't be anyone there. Steelers on TV opposite the Panthers. Ticked the Pitt coach off.

    It is hard for me to root for Pitt, after their terrible display of sportsmanship when they played at Duke this year. But I guess I’ll manage. Go Pitt!

    This is not a high attendance/viewership game even if the Steelers moved to Winnipeg. UNC used a more accepted form of cheating (stealing offensive signs) to beat Pitt the last two years. Hopefully Pitt learned its lesson. 17-10 Panthers at half.

    I know it's not a high attendance game in general, but the Steelers being on the national Thursday night game is hurting it even more. Not every Steeler fan is a Pitt Panther fan, but probably almost every Pitt Panther fan is a Steeler fan.

    UNC's navy blue pants seem closer to Duke's Prussian blue than anything Duke wears these days.

    From teamcolorcodes.com: "The North Carolina Tarheels [sic] colors are Carolina Blue, navy blue, silver and white."

    So you’re literally saying that the Heels looked good?

    I approve the color of their pants. I thought their cartoonish helmet, with the barefoot and "tar" heel sprawling all over the side, was the worst football helmet I have ever seen.

    Sorta like this.

    congrats to the cheats on losing another heartbreaker. In a more perfect world we could have added to Mack Brown's first-season-back close losses.

    but at Pitt, cheats looked good

    Apparently, Scotty Washington, Wake Forest’s other stud receiver (besides Sage Surratt who is now out for the season) is not playing against Clemson today. He had been injured, but is now practicing some and on the verge of coming back. I guess, why bring him back and risk it for a game that isn’t winnable? But I would bet a pie that he will be back next week!

    Incidentally, Wake is at 7 wins right now. Every win should improve their bowl position. And, after conceding a loss today, their last 2 games are against Duke and Syracuse.

    One ill fated running back jump pass being the main culprit. SMDH.

    You might be right. I do think seasons have inflection points, where you bounce up or down. Aftet that, Duke tanked, although the inexcusable loss to Pitt had already happened. I think the program in the bigger picture had inflection points too....the second half loss to Texas A and M was not a downward inflection point, but it prevented an even bigger pivot up. The Miami loss was a big downer. 2016 was a downer. It took late surges to save 17 and 18....meaning we limp into a bowl against a weak opponent and thankfully win. But no real upward inflection points in a long time. Maybe the Pinstripe Bowl. But 59-7 was huge downer. Jump pass a real downer. Last night a real down.

    The overall trajectory is spiraling rapidly downward.
