Know Thy Enemy: All Quiet Edition

Joshua S. Kelly-USA TODAY Sports

Always nice to get a bye week, especially before a Thursday night trip to NC State. As for Clemson's opponents, they decided to engage the ACC Wheel of Derp after 2 weeks of decent play.

#9 Georgia: 1-1

The Bulldogs took the weekend off to do things like drive boats while intoxicated and steal scooters from around Athens. All of this was done in preparation for a showdown against North Texas this weekend.

SC State: 1-2

Wooooo! SC State actually won a game. The Bulldogs knocked of Alabama A&M, who do not borrow any skill from their Texas or Alabama cousins, by the score of 32-0.

NC State: 2-0 (0-0)

Like us the pitwolfies had the weekend off to sample the various restaurants and hot spots in Raleigh. This pretty much means they ended up in bed by 10pm.

Wake Forest: 1-2 (0-1)

Wake Forest decided to spin the ACC Wheel of Derp this weekend and in the process lost to ULM 21-19. At some point you have to ask yourself what WF brings to the ACC in athletics. At least lose to a good team. Anyone who thought Jim Grobe was going to be resurrecting his program this season may want to bring out the wait till next year line. It will at least prevent them from going bankrupt on alcohol purchases.

Syracuse: 1-2 (0-0)

The Orange folks from up north finally got a victory. Granted it was against Wagner, but as Wake Forest has shown us not every game is guaranteed. I can't wait for these crap games to end.

Boston College: 2-1 (1-0)

We all hoped for it, some on Gameday even predicted it, but BC could not beat the Trojans to ensure absolute hilarity out in California. Instead they laid down in a performance that would impress Mack Brown, losing 35-7 to an offense that was inept the week before against Washington State. Now they get a week off to prepare for FSU.Maybe another 17-16 game is in the Seminoles future?

Florida State: 2-0 (1-0)

The Winston show continued at home for Florida State as the Seminoles stomped Nevada 62-7. Not much else to say here, just keep moving along until the real games start.

Maryland: 3-0 (0-0)

The fighting turtles went up to Connecticut and beat the wannabe members of the ACC 35-21 in the Edsall Bowl. Randy Edsall managed to rub salt in the wound he opened up a few years ago by leaving for College Park. Funny how both programs have suffered from his departure.

Virginia: 1-1 (0-0)

The White Meat is still getting over their whiplash injury from the Oregon loss last week. They may want to work on team speed as well as tackling if there is to be any hope of going bowling this year. We really do think their coach is a good choice, but its time to see some results on the field.

Georgia Tech: 2-0 (1-0)

The bumblebees decided to stomp all over Duke 38-14. The triple option was effective once again, and this game is continuing to move up my I'm scared list. Thankfully we get extra time to prepare, otherwise it could get interesting.

Citadel: 1-2

The other Bulldogs won a game too. We can all get excited right? or not.

South Carolina: 2-1

The Gamecocks returned to their winning ways over Vanderbilt, and this time it didn't require any blown officiating to get the victory. Instead a controversy about students leaving the game early has surfaced in Columbia. Just remember kids, success is never guaranteed even at the best programs like Texas and Alabama.
