Updated look at the current nature of the conference by HD at ESPN linked here.
NC State has managed to defeat the top two teams in the league that we have on our schedule. So, you can imagine how maddening it is that we lost to the 10th rated team in the league and got embarrassingly shut out by #6 Florida State (who would not be ranked #6 if they hadn’t beaten us so convincingly).
Let’s keep hoping that the ‘good Wolfpack’ makes their appearance in Saturday’s game vs Maryland.
7. N.C. State (6-5, 3-4; LW: No. 8) – The Wolfpack beat Clemson in all four phases of the game and can now become bowl eligible by beating Maryland in the regular-season finale on Saturday. There’s only one question remaining: Which N.C. State team will show up? The one that lost to BC and got drubbed by Cincinnati? Or the one that beat UNC for a fifth straight time and knocked off a Top 10 team two weeks later?
12. Maryland (2-9, 1-6 ACC; LW: No. 12) – And yet despite Duke’s miserable finish to the season, Maryland has fared worse. The biggest problem is the defense, which can’t seem to stop anyone. The Terps haven’t won a game since Oct. 1 against Towson. They’ve lost seven straight.
