Once again there has been another blowout in the ACC Tournament. Wake Forest ended up winning by 14 points with the final score being 92-78. Yes, it was that kind of blowout. Tomorrow they will be going against Florida State and that should be a lot better than this game was. Do I think they have a chance to get to the quarterfinals? Yes, I do. The way they played today was very decent. They weren’t sloppy and the team played cohesively. That’s always important if a team wants to advance in this tournament.
Next up Pitt will be facing off against Georgia Tech. I hope this game will be a little more exciting than the last game.
This is a very entertaining game so far. Wake Forest is trying to get to the second round but Boston College is not shirking away. They are on a fourteen game losing streak but like I said in my earlier post teams in the ACC, whether they’re bad or good, are always tough to beat in this unpredictable conference. If Wake Forest manages to get through this challenging round there is a sliver of hope for them getting to the third round.
They are beating Boston College by six points with a score of 44 points. Let’s hope they can hold onto their slim lead. Make sure you return after the game is over to see my summary of the game’s greatest moments.
This was an underwhelming game. NC State was completely outmatched in every aspect. It’s a shame they weren’t able to make it any further but I must congratulate Clemson for their win today. Tomorrow they’ll be going against #14 Duke and according to how they played today they probably won’t be able to beat the Blue Devils.
Next up Wake Forest plays Boston College. I’ll see you at the half.
Clemson is winning by double digits with a score of 39 points. NC State unfortunately can’t find their groove and only managed to accumulate a score of 28 points. The last minute of the half was very fun to watch with NC State trying to close the gap. Clemson managed to only extend their lead with an astounding block and a quick three that really drove it home how determined they are to win this game. Will NC State be able to bounce back? Probably not. This is basketball though and anything can happen in this amazing sport.
I’ll be posting again when either Clemson or NC State wins. Enjoy the rest of the game!
It’s a week into March and men’s college basketball is zooming towards March Madness. Before the fantastic two week tournament there are of course the tournaments for each conference. The thing that makes the ACC so tough is the unpredictability. The worst team in the ACC, if they’re having a good day, can sometimes beat much better teams. It happens all the time and that’s what makes the ACC tournament so fun to watch. Of course everyone can say UNC will probably get to the championship or maybe a team like Florida State but sometimes their dreams can be dashed by an unsuspected underdog who’s maybe the worst in the ACC.
All week I’m going to be posting live throughout the ACC tournament so if you want to know any updates or maybe my opinion on the outcomes of each of these games stay tuned to my blog.
Right now the first game has NC State playing Clemson. There’s a little over three minutes left in the first half and Clemson is winning with a score of 27 points. NC State has 23 points at the moment. I will write about how I think the game is going so far during halftime. You won’t want to miss it.
The College Football Championship
Saturday was a day full of underwhelming games. LSU vs. Louisville was a blowout. It was painful watching Lamar Jackson scrambling to and fro, getting sacked mercilessly and getting intercepted. LSU refused to let the Heisman trophy winner embarrass them on Saturday.
Washington’s defense did a fantastic job keeping their offense within range of beating Alabama but thanks to Jake Browning’s timidity and Alabama’s stellar defense they ended up winning a boring 24-7 game.
Clemson beat Ohio State in a 31-0 annihilation. It was a pitiful game that had me believing #5 Penn State should’ve been included in the playoffs instead of Ohio State who they beat earlier in the regular season.
Still the championship has been realized. #1 Alabama will be facing off against #2 Clemson once again. Maybe it’s foolish of me to root against Alabama again but Clemson’s performance Saturday night was very impressive. Alabama however struggled on offense and despite the 17 point difference at the end of the game didn’t really impress me. Clemson’s weakness is their turnovers which Alabama thrives on. They scored 10 of the 24 points off of turnovers versus Washington. If Clemson can keep interceptions and fumbles to a minimum then they really might have a shot at winning the Chamionship.
Sunday’s games were, thankfully, a little more enjoyable than Saturday’s games. I watched the thrilling Panthers/Buccaneers game which ended in a bittersweet 17-16 finish. The New York Giants/Washington Redskins game was boring and ended with the Redskins not making it to the playoffs. The Sunday night game however was worthy of watching.
Aaron Rodgers proved again why he is always in the MVP conversation by leading them to the playoffs once again after having such a bad first half of the season. The Packers will play the Giants on Sunday at Lambeau Field and I am so excited. I am already predicting that they will win. I think that Eli Manning will make too many mistakes that will cost them the game. Now the Giant’s defense is very formidable but will they be able to stop Aaron Rodgers win he starts to scramble? I don’t think so. If Dallas has to face off against the Packers in the second I think they’re lucky streak might come to an end.
Now this Saturday the Lions will go against the Seahawks. I think they will win this game because Seattle has been looking horrible lately. Yes they have more playoff experience but I think Detroit just might have the edge on them.
In the AFC the Dolphins face the Steelers and the Raiders go against the Texans. These, to me, are both boring games. The Steelers are undoubtedly a better team than the Dolphins and therefore will win. The Raiders lost their starting quarterback and their backup quarterback so as unfortunate as it is they will likely lose to the Texans. It doesn’t matter who wins because I’m already predicting the Patriots will win the AFC. They’re ridiculously dominant and the next best team are the Chiefs. Yes the Chiefs are very good but the Patriots, in my opinion, are just better.
So I can’t wait to watch these games. A month from now the Super Bowl will be here and then football will be over until August again. For right now though I am hoping for a wonderful college football championship and some fantastic playoff games.
