Ok, so I don't even know what to write. UNC is scary good on offense, as they've shown most of the year, sans the Louisville first half and Wake game. Our boys stink on defense. I can't even imagine what Bernard might do against our defense. If you are playing college fantasy football, he might be the RB start of the week.

Miami will have to find a way to keep up on the scoreboard, but it won't be all that easy against a defense that ranks 20th in the nation in total defense. I suppose that stat is inflated given some of their competition, and that Wake put up 28 and Louisville and Tech managed to score into the 30s. Still, this Miami team HAS GOT TO QUIT DROPPING FOOTBALLS, SHANKING FIELD GOALS, AND PLAYING CLOWNSHOE FOOTBALL AS IN THE LAST TWO GAMES. The same mistakes that resulted in a close win over the Pack rather than a blowout will end up in a lopsided loss today against the Heels.

Clean it up boys, and keep the (ACC) good times rolling. Go Canes......
