  • Good wins: Miami
  • Non-catastrophic Losses: Virginia Tech, Florida State
  • BC looked the best among the group that played FCS opponents.
  • I would say I'm off the NC State bandwagon, but I was never on it to begin with.
  • Wake's loss will look better as the season goes on.
  • Yes, Miami-Florida State was a great game. But there was some bad defense played by both teams.
  • Florida State's William Floyd is the worst color commentator I have ever heard. He was so bad it was comical. Consistently yelled over the pxp guy. Failed to put together complete or coherent sentences. Frequently used football terminology incorrectly. Constantly repeated himself. If I'm an FSU fan, I'd be embarrassed by him. But since I'm not, I encourage FSU to keep him so I'll know to listen and take notes from here on out to use as blog fodder.
