Default Hype or Analysis?

I was talking to a friend in GA last night and told him about tomorrow's game. I told him that some people had picked USC to be upset by UNC. BTW, this guy is a UGA fan.

Anyway, I said, "Two words: Jadeveon Clowney" and then we talked about his disruptive presence, etc. and then he said, "Two words: Bull crap" and went on to say that USC will crush UNC and that these talking heads HAVE to hype the game since it is the start of the season, on ESPN, etc. He basically said they are full of it and should be an easy victory for USC.

BUT

The way the early game was talking this morning...IDK, seems like it is a touch and go game, etc.

What is your opinion on this: Hype or Analysis?

I have no doubt that most people have no worries about USC taking care of UNC (outside of maybe some UNC fans) and doing so handedly. I agree that the ESPN talking heads are just trying to hype the game and if they were betting they'd pick USC to cover the spread.

The thing that gets me is the difference between fans of SEC teams compared to fans of say the ACC. SEC teams seem to tend to pull for each other in non-conference play while ACC fans tend to pull against their conference brethren in non-conference play. One of the things that make the SEC superior is that y'all see the big picture and the need for the SEC to dominate the other conferences. I could be wrong there but that seems to be what I've seen.

The HBC sounded pretty confident last night. He made a point of saying they were not some unstoppable juggernaut. Their average score was skewed by playing Elon, Idaho, and the shootout with Georgia Tech. I think it is safe to say they did not play a defense like ours, in an environment like ours last year. I also think Whammy has a good system for stopping these hurry up offenses. I think he is way better than Ellis Johnson was at adapting to them.

I agree it is all talking head hype. Look at the Vegas odds. That is a much more accurate assessment from an objective point of view.

We typically don't play great the first game. We shouldn't think this will be an easy game. A turnover here or there, or a busted play or two by an inexperienced linebacker, and who knows what can happen. Florida wasn't a better team than us last year, but turnovers killed us.

Don't bet on us dominating this game from the start. They have a great qb, who has targets to throw to. And we have a starting LB, WR, and TE out, along with our second string TE gimpy. We looked horrible last year to start at Vandy.

I think we win, but its going to be a fight.

This about sums it up.

They might come out and "surprise" us for a quarter but I look for the team to adjust quickly and handle our bidness.

Renner is NOT a great QB, he is okay at best. Watch his highlights, if he has to throw any distance he depends on a bail out from a receiver because he always leads too far or overthrows. Yes, he CAN make the throws, but if he leads too far or overthrows on us it'll be intercepted or nearly intercepted. He hasn't played coverage like ours with a pass rush like ours.

I think unc is better than some on here are giving them credit for I think we are in for a tough game and I have a feeling some people may be disappointed with our overall performance al la vandy game last year ... First games are never clean and often lead to more questions than answers.

Default Re: Hype or Analysis?

In regards to the vandy game last year, lets look at some factors:
-typically don't start great
-vandy always plays us tough
-it was on the road
-vandy was better than unc last year

All of these things make me feel a whole lot better about the first game this year. I don't care how prepared they are they are not ready for the speed, size, and power of this team. Couple those things with the higher talent level and the dedication this team has and it makes one feel better about the game.

29 hours 32 minutes

If the players walk in there thinking they have the game and they won't have to play hard we'll lose.

UNC is jacked up for this game, it's their super bowl.

If, on the other hand, we come out and execute our game plan we win going away.

How many fast paced offenses have scored lots of pts on us the past 2 seasons?

I'm with this guy. I think we will win, but I'm never too confident. I've learned my lesson over the years. Heck, even last year we scraped by several games. UNC isn't a bad team. They scored a ton of points last year and were 9 points away from being 11-1. I wouldn't take them lightly. We have plenty of questions as well so only time will tell.
