Well, that was fun. It was one of those perfect North Carolina November days, the atmosphere inside Carter-Finley was great, and that team we saw could’ve competed with anyone in the nation yesterday. But it was also mind-numbingly frustrating after last week’s trip to Chestnut Hill. Where on earth has yesterday’s team been?
Yesterday’s win wasn’t just TOB’s first over a Top 10 opponent (at State), it was also the perfect microcosm of the TOB tenure: it is indeed true that we never have any clue which team will show up each week. And let’s be honest, all yesterday’s win does is set us up to, once again, have our hopes crushed by our bugaboo Maryland.
Amidst State’s dominance of the Atlantic Division champions, David Amerson set a new ACC mark for single-season interceptions with his 11th pick and T.J. Graham became the all-time ACC leader in kickoff return yardage.

I doubt many of us saw the State-Vanderbilt game, since many of us were at the football game and it was broadcast only on ESPN3. State lost 86-79.
