ACC Football Week 11: Staff Predictions

The lesson this week: don’t brag.

Remember last week when someone was so thrilled about the fact that he was no longer in the basement that he specifically made me tell you all that he wasn’t? No? You couldn’t have missed him on Twitter.

After being so relieved, you’d think that it would be the start of a massive comeback. You know, like that moment Carolina was down 21 in the 3rd quarter and then scored a quick touchdown on their way to scoring 35 consecutive points? Jake surely was going to do that, right?

Not so much. Instead, he basically went the equivalent of a three and out. Specifically, he pulled up one of the only losing weeks by anyone on staff this season, and did it in spectacular fashion with a 1-4 slate. He got UNC/Wake right, thank goodness, but other than that? Zilch. Sure is the type of guy we like representing the blog after the games on WCHL (a reminder you can catch Jake every post game on WCHL where he offers his great break down and zero predictions).

On the other side of the coin, we had three perfect predictors: Evan, Joe, and Matt. The deciding factor for everyone else was the Louisville/UVa game, where Louisville has started to crash down to earth much to the chagrin of the rest of us. Those other three correctly got UVa, and created a bigger division of the have and have nots. Let’s go over how everyone else did:

Evan still holds a two game lead over all of us, and he’s getting close to the point where no one will be able to catch him. One would think in a week with seven games, there’d be a chance for some of us to catch up, right?

Well, not really...

Most of us are in complete agreement about every game, the only one with a lot of debate being a game none of us really wanted to choose with Liberty and NC State. For the record, I put “meteor” first, but Akil has been steadfast in his abhorrence of Liberty playing football so he’s allowed to copy.

So, sit back, relax, enjoy a weekend off from Carolina football, and see if chaos can be introduced to give Carolina hope for playing in the ACC Championship.
