Default Our fans amaze me

Sometimes I am just flabbergasted by our fans. They are always ready to jump off a cliff if we don't win a game in the manner that they feel we should. This is both a good and a bad thing.

We obviously did not play well Saturday. It made me think of our early days in the SEC when we would get a lead on one of the SEC Powerhouses. We would get that lead and then the superior team would come back in the 2nd half and beat us. We would get our hopes up, just like the UCF fans did Saturday and then we get our hearts broken. Be thankful that we won the game. We were the superior team on the field and everyone knew that. Just like when we took a 21-3 lead against Florida in the Holtz era. We got all excited and Florida came back and beat us. We are doing that to teams now.

It is good to have high expectations, but we are talking about 18 to 22 years kids. They don't always perform like we want them to.

It is bad for us to be so negative because we didn't wipe the floor with UCF. Come on. A 3 point victory puts a notch in the win column, just like a 20 point victory does.

We just need to keep on winning. I don't care how we look, just keep on winning. I watched the game with some Debbie Downers, everybody was giving up on the whole season at the half.

I told them "Look, they our D is not playing bad, a bit of bend don't break UCF is only up by 10, wait for the second half". Second half Mike takes over & if it weren't for the turnovers, we would have won 28 to 10.

Just keep winning, our schedule lines up very nicely.

Default Re: Our fans amaze me

While I agree with you to an extent, this team is still playing poorly and continuing to make the same mistakes.

I'm happy we won against a quality team in UCF.
But it is concerning when the defense continues to make the same mistakes week after week after week.

Did the fumbles hurt (just an odd day for those) yes.
Wilds had a freak fumble, Davis had a fumble and Connor had a freak fumble.
IF we score on those drives, we may be talking about a different game.

But we didn't.

Again, I'm not freaking out. But it is disheartening the team keeps making the same mistakes and doesn't seem to be growing or getting better. It feels like the development is stagnent or regressing on defense right now.

But hey, maybe next week it finally all clicks, we see the improvement and we blow Kentucky out 47-10 to get momentum in the 3-game road stretch.

when we continue to give up 50+ yard touchdown plays every week and it looks like no adjustments are being made then I am going to worry

Good advice – just keep winning. We will be just fine.

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!

I agree 100%! We have obvious problems with our defense, but so does most every other team in college football. I think most of our problems can be fixed with more experience and better coaching. But what kills me about our fans is this whole recruiting topic. People running around screaming that we have fallen behind uga in recruiting and we can't keep up with them on the recruiting trail. I just looked at the national defense rankings and our poorly recruited, no talent defense is ranked 10 spots ahead of uga's highly recruited, 5* stacked defense. Watch the games people, we lost a very tight game to uga in Athens, so did lsu. It's not the end of the world.

Welcome to every fan base that has ever existed on the face of the planet! You get no points for fingering the obviousness of something that has been blatantly and painfully clear about fans and the human condition like FOREVER.

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.

I was watching in 1997...so yea, I've seen just how bad this program can be.
Nere missed a game for 0-21, never left early.

Trust me, I ain't soft.
I just recognize when we play like utter garbage on defense.

I'm not sure about this. Those of us that have been around LONG before 2000 are used to disappointment. We are used to getting our hopes up just to have Dondrial Pinkins fumble in the red zone or some such breakdown. We know what it feels like to have our hearts broken by the team we love. Sometimes it's easy for those feelings to come back when we see Carolina play games like they have recently. I am by no means giving up on anything, but I don't think anyone can argue the fact that we have not played a complete game yet, and that's disappointing. I still have high hopes for the season, and hope they will soon come out and play like the talented team we know them to be. We need 100% from EVERYBODY, and the fact it we are not getting that right now.

Long before 2000 - amen, brother!!! And you are 100% spot on about those feelings coming back pretty quickly at times.

Speaking of, I think delay of game penalties drive me the most crazy of any!!! When the time clock was winding down to 3 seconds, 2 seconds, and Thompson was sauntering back to the line of scrimmage, was anybody else screaming, "get to the line or call a timeout???" Ding! Penalty! Grrr!

No matter, I love Carolina – always have, always will!

What's so disappointing is that this was off of a bye week and they said they worked on defensive and special teams issues and they looked even worse.

It is good to have high expectations, but we are talking about 18 to 22 years kids. They don't always perform like we want them to.

It is bad for us to be so negative because we didn't wipe the floor with UCF. Come on. A 3 point victory puts a notch in the win column, just like a 20 point victory does.
A lot of them are not really our fans. They are imposters preying on the weak minded.
