    Default Team ACC Achievements (All ACC Selections added)

    With the win over UNC Saturday, the Pack improved to 8-3 (5-3 ACC). With this win, this is the first time since the 1991-1992 season that the Pack as posted back to back winning seasons in the ACC.

    Also with the win, the Pack improved to 11-5 over the last two years in the ACC, which puts us second to Clemson (15-1) in wins over the last two years.

    We are on the verge guys, lets be patient, take our hate glasses off and realize what we have this year.

    D -- thanks for posting all that.


    Amazing to see the progress and recognition our beloved Pack has had.
    We are blessed in our recruiting and player development, but cursed with the draw we have in our division.

    Indeed, Derreck posted that information before Go Pack.com even posted it! So, very much appreciate that!

    Our offense was loaded this year. In terms of reaching parity with Clemson, we have to balance that level of talent on both sides of the ball, plus have reserves in the ready. Doeren has built the program depth carefully and well. Back-to-back nine win seasons is validation of that. Doeren now has a chance to match the high water mark of school history by winning the 2018-19 bowl game and earning a tenth win. Chuck Amato is the only other Wolfpack coach to lead a team to ten wins.

    The difference between Doeren and Amato is character. I hate saying this about Chuck Amato because he was a Wolfpack player, but Amato did not have the character required to be a long term success and Dave Doeren does! The character results in more stability within the coaching staff, and the further relationship building with the high school coaches, who are the true influence makers for the players.

    This season is one that I predicted would achieve historic levels of success. I actually thought we would win 11 regular season games, which would have put us firmly into a New Year's Six bowl matchup and have us ranked in the top ten in the nation. We lost two games I predicted we would win (@ Syracuse, and home against Wake). The Syracuse game I thought would be challenging. I never in my life thought we would lose at home to Wake and I'm still angry about that one. The Wake loss is why this team is not ranked in the top ten and sitting pretty for that NY Six match. Still, running off three straight wins to conclude regular season play has tempered my vitriol, which may have been misplaced to begin with.

    The ACC has placed 11 teams into bowl eligibility, and likely all 11 will receive invitations. In terms of top to bottom talent, the ACC is right there with the SEC.

    Player development has been awesome. We are taking 3 star recruits and turning them into NFL caliber players at a regular clip.

    I can see Jones, Bradbury, Pratt, Finley and Harmon getting drafted, with Roseboro and Gallaspy either being late round picks or making it as free agents.

    That’s impressive player development

    Cannot disagree with Doeronś player development and the improvement in recruiting. We have had 2 really good seasons, 9-4 last season and 9-3 this season with still a chance to win 10 games with a bowl victory, but there has been one variable that has kept the Pack from having great seasons the past 2 years and that variable is Wake Forest. Why?? Why??? Why?????.

    Up until 2015 when Dabo took Clemson to the National Championship game and really has not looked back since winning it all in 2016 and being top 2 in the Nation since, Clemson had a term attached to their program called ¨Clemsoning¨. Basically Dabo had improved Clemsonś recruiting to where they had National elite talent but always had 1 or 2 WTF games every season to keep them out of contention for a National title and the Clemson fans called it ¨Clemsoning¨. Clemson got over the hump in 2015. I submit that our games against Wake the past 2 seasons has been our ¨Clemsoning¨. Time for us to get over the hump as well.

    Do not get me wrong. I am very pleased as far as where our football program is now compared to where we have been in a long time. I would just like to see us get over the WTF game hump like Clemson did. We need to beat Wake in the ground like a ugly, fugly. red headed step child next season in Winston.
