Thing is all week long last week we heard, “is SC on upset alert?” I must have heard that at least once a day last week. People everywhere were calling UCF a trap game. Even one of my Oklahoma State buddies here at work sent me a note last week with an article attached – about Carolina being on upset alert (how ironic seeing as to what happened to his Cowboys this past weekend!).
And even after the game – “UCF is a great team, they played a great game, they’ll probably go 10-2 losing only to Louisville? And Carolina sucked, we were horrible.” Yet WE BEAT that great team that played a great game that will probably go 10-2 and we beat them at THEIR place!”
I have to keep in mind that when our fans get down on our team it’s just because we want them to do so well. When I had season’s tickets in the 80s and early 90s, we were long-suffering fans that kept coming back week after week after loss after loss. Now our expectations are sky-high – and for good reason.
And it is my belief that we are a little more critical because “that school up north” is having a good year. When I lived in Cola, I think Carolina fans got just as excited when Clemmy lost as we did when we won! Just my observation.
Don’t worry – a few tweaks on defense and we’ll end up 11-1! Stay true. We are Carolina fans for a reason!
EXACTLY! This is what I've been saying all along. We hear all week about trap game, this is the biggest game in the history of their program, great quarterback, going to be a tough game,etc. Then the EXACT moment we win, the goal line is moved and it becomes "we looked like shit" and everyone's pissed we didn't blow them out. This is unfair to the team and the coaches. We won a tough game that EVERYONE had circled as a possible upset and come away with a W and peope are pissed. Oh, you don't like that we won ugly? WTF? If you're looking for style points in wins, go pull for an ACC team or find an arena league team you like. Do we have issues? Of course, did you just see how that LSU defense that has all thos four and five star players get 40+ hung on them? Or some of you are buying the bullshit from Clempson, how did they look on the road against NC state which i guarantee would get beat by UCF? We had a good game on offense and minus the two long plays after we got up, had a good day on defense. I swear I think some of you are happier when you get to bitch and moan like a bunch of losers that be glad we won.
