    We'll put up another review after bowl season, but lets take a moment to reflect on how the season has been going for you, as opposed to how you thought itd be in the beginning. What impact players have formed? How has the recruiting gone? What adjustments have you made throughout the year? Favorite game of the year? Idc what you say, lets just put some content in this bitch !

    The Yellow Jackets were able to turn around a 2-3 start to go onto a six game win streak. We are currently 8-3. The impact players we have formed are Vad Lee, and A back Synjyn Days. These two have setup a deadly combination in the Yellow Jacket backfield in our option attack. The adjustments we made was to just run more of the triple option. Most players don't know where it's going at all, we also added the Midline QB ISO to attack 3-4 defense straight up the gut. Our recruiting, well we hope to bring in more players after we play UGA, we only have 3 commitments right now and one may be an immediate starter. There hasn't been a favorite game since we are just now putting our offense together. The Yellow Jackets look to improve next season.

    Nebraska was doing pretty well going 10-0, but after two straight losses have been kicked from the conference championship game and probably won't get into a good bowl game. Nebraska's recruiting class is ranked second in the nation with 13 of the 14 commits being 4 star recruits and is also in the lead for a couple more 4 star guys. Favorite game being against Michigan State.

    Syracuse's season started out very slow as we got swept by all the user games we played. 0-4 in the user games really hurt but we managed to win every single CPU game to put us in contention for a bowl game. Finishing 2nd in our division behind powerhouse Clemson. We have a lot of good 3* recruits coming in but our defense will only get worse before it starts to get better. Our offense is going to be even better next year. QB Drew Allen transfered from Oklahoma prior to this season and is a stud, he and Jerome Smith have carried the Cuse offense to a respectable record.

    The season has not gone nearly as smooth as an outsider may think. From looking at the results of the schedule and the numbers put up, it may look like it's been cake, but it's been a real challenge.

    I was down big early on in the opener against Georgia but rallied back for the home fans and won it in the 4th quarter. Down by 14 against an unstoppable Virginia Tech team, I rallied to get my first conference victory. Miami took a 10 point lead late into the 3rd quarter only to fall to the arm of Boyd and the defense gutting out a victory. Syracuse put up a good fight but a hail mary TD right before halftime really deflated the Orangemen in the second half. At home against a very talented FSU team, I was down by 21 but then came out with a commanding 45 points unanswered. The South Carolina game was no easy task either, they came to play and ruin my perfect season. Tahj Boyd has the flu all week and it showed as his passes were all over the place in the 1st half. Clemson leaned on the running game and Sammy Watkins to gut out a victory in Columbia and seal the perfect regular season record.

    Tahj Boyd and Sammy Watkins really been an all out assault on the team season record books and are in range of a couple NCAA records. Halfback Malcom McDowell also bested the school record for rushing TD's in a season.

    Clemson has punched it's ticket to the ACC Championship game. With a victory and some help, they can possibly get a shot at the coveted national championship!

    Miami hasn't had the easiest road but overall, the Hurricanes have succeeded in their first year under head coach Patrick Taylor. Miami finished 1st in the ACC Coastal division with a conference record of 7-2 and an overall record of 7-5. There is no doubt that running back Duke Johnson was the leader for this team collecting over 1,100 yards on the ground and 1,700 kick return yards that combined for over 15 touchdowns on the year. Senior quarterback Stephen Morris was shaky throughout the year but the Hurricanes' top receiver Clive Watford was certainly not. He gained over 700 yards through the air and gathered up 4 TD's.
    The Hurricanes' season was certainly heartbreaking at times with 4 losses by less than 2 touchdowns but the team certainly has a chance to redeem themselves in the ACC championship against undefeated 12-0 Clemson. A win would not only dash the hopes of a national championship for the Tigers but would also vault the Hurricanes into a BCS bowl, something the Hurricanes haven't been apart of in over 9 years. The future of the Miami football program is bright and Coach Taylor hopes to bring the U the same success that was nationally recognized in the 1980's and 90's. Let's see what he can do!

    UNC came into the year with a sophomore and junior laden squad that looked to compete and build momentum for the future, but also compete for a conference title. While UNC competed for the most part, they were unable to beat the top tier teams in the conference, that being Clemson, Miami, Georgia Tech (0-3 against users) and Virginia Tech.

    While it has been a good not great year, two seniors have picked up national recognition, that being the nations leading rusher, AJ Blue, and the nations sack leader, Tim Jackson.

    UNC has picked up 6 recruits so far, and looks to sign 6 more, as they return most of their roster.

    UNC faces the Bayou Bengals of LSU in the Motor City Bowl on New Years Eve to wrap up the year and look to capture their 9th win in what would be considered a successful campaign under first year man, Coach Haas.
