    Because closing the loop that life (and God) deals us. It's fate.
    Talk about full circle. 8 years to the day since Grobe resigned.

    Earlier in the season I thought Hartmanís reads erred away from the QB run. This makes sense given our lack of proven depth at QB. As the stakes have increased, and CBS and Ellison went down, he has run the ball a shade more. I expect with a title on the line he will run more than previously. We must run the ball.
    Totally agree. I think Hartman is going to have to put the run game on his back tonight.

    Yeah, I'm watching at my Dad's house, he's kind of aged out of going to games any distance away especially late. In 2006, we drove down to Jacksonville on Friday and came back after the game the next day. That was such a great trip. I feel bad for not being there tonight, but I've got to watch with my Pops. Sounds like we're going to be well represented anyway.

Any reasonable alternatives? Other than just radio? 🤬
    Pick up a $10 antenna.

    I wasn't able to go in 2006. Our son was just a year old and being a pastor, it is hard to take a weekend off in December. My dad and one of his old Wake roommates went. But I'll be there tonight with my son and nephew (who wasn't even born in 2006). Sadly my dad died in 2016. He surely would be with us tonight if he was still with us. We will make him proud.

    And first downs only matter if you don't score first (see Army).
    Yep. it better be a shoot out or we're in serious trouble.

    On the train from Cary to CLT - a good number of Deacon fans and I bet we'll pick up more in G'boro and Kannapolis. Also a few Pitt fans sprinkled in... Get hyped!

    I dont think college GameDay has mentioned the acc championship game once so far. ESPN is pathetic.
