    Can you give an example of a great offensive team beating a great defensive team? Because I can give you plenty of examples of the reverse.

    Dammit Georgia, in a close game with Kentucky of all things? Come on.

    The Patriots beating the Ravens last year and anytime the 49ers lose.

    So a great offense beating an aging defense, and a great offense losing to some unknown opponent that could be equally skilled on defense? Good comparison!

    Instead of the usual weekly apology during football season, the ACC actually suspended some people. What a fucking joke of a conference.

    http://espn.go.com/blog/ncfnation/post/_/id/69242/acc-suspends-officials-shakeel-rashad

    Edited for brevity:

    The three offensive pass interference calls are the only offensive pass interference calls made in the ACC this season. Against any team.

    And I hate to sound like a homer, but FSU is the most penalized every year. There's no way they sit down the officials every year and say "penalize FSU the most", and we've certainly deserved it some years, but we play at a disadvantage in every ACC reffed game.

    This is just from last season:

    Ack! Marcus Lattimore (spelling?) just wrecked his knee. Really turns my stomach, I feel bad for him.

    Yeah that did not look good at all. Could be a broken leg if he is lucky, but looked more like his knee just got destroyed.

    Yikes. That's a nasty injury. I hate to see him get hurt like that again after the ACL last year. He's so talented, and he managed to get back to form this season; I hope he can do it again.
