    Surprised at the 3:30 KO, Bob Green will undoubtedly be happy. (I know I am)

    A pleasing time for a 11/30 KO. We can leave the NC mountains in the AM and be at tailgate in time for Costcos, other grilled non-vegetarian delights and thirst-quenching hand-crafted ales.

    Thanksgiving weekend means lots of empty seats.

    We promise, we are NOT serving leftovers at our tailgate. (In fact, we've already decided on it and promise it will be fun and different.)

    ...and that worked out so well for us last season...(as an aside, I believe that the empty stadium for senior day flattened our guys out versus WFU. I think it does quite often. There's a reason Duke's a better road team).

    It's not confined to Duke. Private schools as a rule do not care for hosting on Thanksgiving weekend. Your fan base is too scattered. A large state-supported school generally has students, alums and subway alums who live within reasonable driving distance of their school. That's just not the case with a private school, with a smaller, more geographically dispersed fan base.

    Oh I agree with this....and Miami is also a private school, so someone had to host...

    I will be in the midwest visiting granddaughters. This accomplishes two things:

    1) Spending time with 4 princesses.
    2) Not being tempted to go to the game.

    Note to Refs: This is Thanksgiving . . . NOT Halloween! No need for tricks this time!

    I thought Thanksgiving came only once a year?

    I went to Wake last night. Much like the Caldwell era, I was one of the 2,000 people there in weather conditions similar to Wake 2018. That excuse holds zero water (insert pun of your choice.) I am also not expecting the game to be competitive.

    Your expectations appear to be highly realistic...

    I've been trying to avoid making snarky comments about that lame excuse since just before the Wake game started yesterday. I've been... mostly successful except for this post and one in the Wake thread part way through the game.

    You can preach about excuse all you want, but that doesn't matter. It was clearly a factor IMO...so whether it's excusable or not, or somewhere in between, is not the point. The point is, it hurt us in that game and it is killing recruiting. Period. Shrink the stadium seating. Shrink the security nightmare. Have the band play between plays like the SEC bands do. Have some creativity on offense. Etc.

    Miami is a 6 points favorite in early betting lines.
