Busy weekend in sports as we head towards Turkey Day and the final regular season weekend of college football.
North Carolina beat Old Dominion 80-20. Both head coaches agreed to shorten the fourth quarter to 10 minutes, a modern mercy rule. Some were calling Fedora classless, dont know why, they had scout team players in and took a knee on a fourth and goal. Cant just stop playing. ( btw, Florida State and South Carolina also won by 60 or more points)
Duke beat Wake Forest 28-21. This sets up a big game vs North Carolina this weekend, they win and they will be in the ACC Championship Game vs Florida State.
Will Jameis Winston be able to play in the Championship Game, and a possible National Championship? We wont find out until after Thanksgiving.
East Carolina beat NC State in Raleigh 42-28. State fans had to endure the “Our State” chants again, and a billboard on Capital Blvd. Some statefans have called for that campaign to be retired.
Duke basketball escapes with a 91-90 win over Vermont. Coach K said they were “lucky to win”.
UNC basketball bounces back with two wins over the weekend, including a 93-84 win over defending champs and #3 ranked Louisville. Marcus Paige had a career high 32 points.
Carolina Panthers won their 7th game in a row, Manning cant beat Brady, Brian McCann to the Yankees, five years, $85 million.
