    2011 game recaps

    I'm going to try this and see if it works. Last season we decided to take our recaps out of the summaries forums and onto the main page. We can either do it like last year with a new post for each week (most of which were pretty empty) or we could try keeping everything in this post. I don't care which way we go.

    Revenge Has Never Tasted So Sweet!

    [​IMG]
    Ryan Houston was a BEAST today

    UNC got revenge for their last loss of last season today between the hedges. They dominated the dawgs in every facet of the game and cruised to an easy 44-18 victory over the #1 team in the land. UNC's offense dominated UGA's defense just as much as UNC's defense had their way with the UGA offense. They had 400 yards of offense to UGA's 200 yards. They had 120 rushing yards to UGA's 45 and they threw for 280 yards compared to 160. The Heels only had to punt once the entire game and that was during the last minute of the 2nd quarter where they had a 3 and out with nothing but passes to try to move quickly down the field.

    Offensively, Ryan Houston was the man and proves that there is clearly a place in college football for a big powerful back and that not everyone needs to be Demps. He ran for 116 yards, averaged 5.2 yards per carry and totaled 3 rushing TDs. What's most impressive about this is the fact that his long was only 14 yards so that average isn't padded. He was good for about 5 yards almost every single time he touched the ball. He ran straight up the gut and outside with equal ease. He made it very clear early on that arm tackles would not be enough to bring him down. Because of Houston's rushing prowess, the dawgs really packed the box for most of the game, which game new starting QB Mike Paulus easy reads on passes which allowed him to complete 15 of 21 passes for 280 yards. His main target was SR TE Christian Wilson who caught 6 balls for 150 yards and 2 TDs.

    Defensively, coach Jello's gameplan was to attack the UGA offensive line. With the plethora of scary weapons UGA has on offense, their O-line is probably one of the weakest that the Heels will face all season. They are especially weak at RT where they start true FR Will Hooper who would probably be a 3rd stringer on most SEC or ACC teams. To take advantage of this, coach Jello switched his RE (his best DE) to LE for this game to line him up against the FR and it worked like a charm. Coples tallied team highs with 9 tackles, 5 TFL, and 3 sacks. All in all, the Heels sacked the UGA QBs 6 times and they also forced 2 interceptions to boot.

    Hopefully this performance will help boost the confidence of a very young, and frankly, not very good defense. Ryan Houston showed what most Heels fans already knew coming into this season. Our offense will be just fine.

    Tennessee 41
    Florida State 17

    Tennessee jumped out to an early 24-0 lead. Florida St. hit a FG to close out the first half and make the score 24-3 Vols. FSU kicked off the second half but after 2 quick turnovers and scores FSU cut the lead to 24-17. Tennessee managed to regain focus and closed out the game with 17 unanswered points.

    Coach WhyGod made an incredible blunder in the fourth quarters. Running the option and getting his qb injured for 3 weeks.

    After the game Coach WhyGod was reached for comment:

    In a close opener against a tough Michigan (A+ overall) coach killaJo learned alot about his team. The defense is stacked and can be dominate as long as they dont try to hard to make big plays. They had two mental breakdowns trying to go for big hits that lead to touchdowns.

    Offensively, this is a team that can run. With a power back, a speedster and athletic QB, this team has a chance to control TOP in a lot of games. Griffin led the way with 132yds on 24 carries, Richardson had a 4.0 avg and Star Jackson had 11 for 60.

    The key for this years squad will be if Jackson can complete passes on 3rd down. With TE Smelley leading the way with 5 catches for just 21yds, Jackson has a long way to go if he wants to become an accomplished passer.

    With a tough schedule ahead including the week three game against UNC, Jackson will look to work with his receivers after practice.

    Week 1

    (21) Clemson 70 - Memphis 14

    The scheduling gods gave Clemson a cupcake in week 1 and the Tigers took advantage of it. Although Clemson still retains its playbook from last year, look for the Tigers to become more run-oriented. And why wouldn't they? Senior All-American HB Jamie Harper is an exemplary feature back and he sure did put his skills on display today. Harper ran the ball 22 times for 214 yards and 2 scores. He took the bench midway through the 3rd, allowing Andre Ellington to get some clock. Ellington also had a fine game - running for 129 yards on 16 carries. When it was all over, Clemson amassed 462 yards on the ground - evoking images of those great Cornhusker teams b.c (before Callahan). The passing game left something to be desired but it was effective when Coach Swinney dialed it up. Willy Korn completed 6/7 passes for 94 yards with a 1/0 ratio. All American WR Bryce McNeal is accustomed to catching 3 passes a quarter, but in the 1st week 3 catches is all he'd have.

    On defense, the younger players made their presence felt. True freshman CB Marvin Campbell intercepted 2 passes, returning one for a score.

    Next week, a match up against Maryland. Having lost 2 close games against the Terps the past 2 years, you can be sure the Tigers will be ready for this one!

    Nice work guys! These write ups are great. They're driving me nuts though since I haven't gotten to play yet. Week 2 won't get here fast enough.

    UNC over UGA between the hedges, that's crazy. Can you say "Championship Hangover!"? Too much time celebrating the championship this offseason for UGA and a hungry UNC team. I thought UNC was suppose to have a terrible defense this year? UGA's lucky because if you're going to lose, lose early.

    Bama fends off a strong michigan team at the big house. Tough place to play. The stats looked pretty even. If only the CPU had a better idea of how to utilize an athletic QB.....Bama may be coming home with their tail between their legs.

    Clemson. What can I say. They've become the epitome of the under acheiving team. Every year, they demolish the teams they should, but simply can't win the close ones to push for the NC. Could this be the year??? With rushing numbers like that in week 1, they've had to put a little fear in some (acc) teams.
