Time to move to the SEC.
5 days for GT? You have got to be kidding me.
I can see it now....
Scenario 1: Lose to Marshall
Excuse for Scenario 1: Team was already looking ahead to GT and overlooked Marshall
Scenario 2: Lose to GT
Excuse for Scenario 2: Not enough time to prepare for GT
Weak schedule. Alabama is the only saving grace and that will likely be a loss
Season ticket holders got the shaft

We will have no time to prepare for GT plus we lose a day for travelling. Horrible draw and big advantage to GT.
I hope GT plays on the 21st, 5 days before us. That would neutralize some of their advantage.
- 2 repeat games (@ Miami, Duke)
- no Thursday night home game
- 2 games in Atlanta less than 4 weeks apart
- short week vs GT
meanwhile, UNC (who is, IMO, our biggest competition in the coastal this season) ....
- 0 repeat games
- 2 Thursday night games (home vs Miami, @ USC-E)
- 12 days to prepare for Miami, 2 weeks for GT
I say the schedule sucks, and I'm tired of being in a conference where the commissioner has a building named for him on the campus of a team he blatantly favors
You're right about that
Hokie, Hokie, Hokie, Hy!
Tech, Tech, VPI
The ACC protects it's investments.
meh, we have marshall before that and a vet. Dline. Should not be a problem.
- 2 repeat games? UM away is BS but Duke? Who cares
- Better for recruiting but man I love thursday night games...
- Not sure it matters about 2 games in atl in 4 weeks?
- short week vs GT is fine. THey are playing UNC ahead of us and we have a vet. D. Should not be a problem.
- Good for us that we have 2 breaks. One ahead of UVA.
- UM late in the year
All in all a rather dull schedule but one that could get us back to the ACCCG if we play well against UM and UNC. If we fall against any of the other ACC teams then we are not as good as we should be.
I will agree that UNC are the darlings of the ACC; however, like every other year they will find a way to step on their wienie.
Great points. I loathe UNC and the favoritism that has been given to them from the NCAA regarding their improprieties from the past few years as well as from Swofford in the Commissioner's office is sickening.
The ACC is garbage because of the Carolina Mafia.
We also said that last year with a vet D-line. The D-line was less than stellar the first half of last year.
Too bad we don't play South Carolina. If we did, we'd have all 4 directional Carolinas covered. West, East, North, South.
Plenty of home games for recruits, and a largely winnable schedule overall. This is a good thing with expansion looming, and perception of each school being magnified as conference heads evaluate their decisions.
Same O, Same O......Only Bad thing about the ACC , It's unCheat Top Heavy . Swoffy and his Cheats are always going to be covered.
Dang. How did the hoos rate 8 home games? That doesn't seem normal.
True, but not for the Monday night GT game. They played very well in that game, and then lost their mojo until late in the season.
