First Down: Five Worst ACC Losses of the Week
Question of the Day
WEEKEND REWIND IN CASE YOU MISSED IT
ACC goes down in flames — When the ACC sent 10 teams to bowl games last season, conference officials claimed it was a sign the league’s football reputation was improving. So much for that. After an opening week that featured six nonconference losses, including a pair to CAA schools, it’s time the league realizes its place in the college football landscape: at the bottom of the major conferences. Last year, the league praised its parity, featuring several teams at or above .500. This year there’s still parity, except all the teams are bad.
Redskins make roster moves — After the Great Colt vs. Chase Debate of ‘09, who would have guessed neither Brennan or Daniel would be on the roster at the end of training Camp? With one on injured reserve and the other with the Saints, the Redskins will go with receiver Antwaan Randle El as the emergency No. 3 quarterback. If nothing else, at least Jason Campbell enters the season without a younger quarterback on the roster for Redskins fans to pine for.
TWT FIVE ACC’S WORST LOSSES OF THE FIRST WEEK
1. William & Mary 26, Virginia 14 — At this point, the only question about the Cavaliers’ 2009 campaign is when does Craig Littlepage finally fire Al Groh: during or after the season?
2. California 52, Maryland 13 — A Cal defensive end just sacked Chris Turner again. If the Terps’ young offensive line can’t protect Turner, what’s going to happen against Florida State and Virginia Tech?
3. Richmond 24, Duke 16 — The CAA’s second win over an ACC team may be viewed as an upset, but not when you consider the resumes. Richmond is the defending Football Championship Subdivision champ, and Duke is, well, Duke.
4. Baylor 24, Wake Forest 21 — It’s not a good sign for the ACC when a bottom-feeding Big 12 school can win on the road at one of the league’s best programs in recent years.
5. South Carolina 7, N.C. State 3 — Not a good sign for the Wolfpack when highly touted QB Russell Wilson can’t muster a touchdown against a Steve Spurrier defense.
HE SAID WHAT?
“I’ll be kicking myself for a little bit thinking about that one. But playing football is awesome. It’s so much fun. I can’t tell you the joy I get. To play here is phenomenal.”
