College football scores, NCAA top 25 rankings, Week 6: No. 5 Notre Dame, No. 8 UNC hold off feisty opponents

Posted on

Though No. 1 Clemson’s game against No. 7 Miami was the national headliner on Saturday, a pair of other top-10 ACC teams were in action, and both overcame tests before holding on to win as No. 5 Notre Dame beat Florida State 42-26 and No. 8 North Carolina outlasted No. 19 Virginia Tech 56-45. Both the Fighting Irish and Tar Heels will be candidates to move up in the polls after No. 4 Florida lost to No. 21 Texas A&M.

After two weeks off due to a game wiped out by a COVID-19 outbreak followed by a scheduled bye, Notre Dame hoped to pick up where it left off in a 52-0 throttling of South Florida on Sept. 19. But a Florida State team starting its third quarterback of the season in Jordan Travis provided some resistance. Ultimately, Notre Dame’s offense was too much for the Seminoles as the Fighting Irish racked up 554 yards, including 353 on the ground. 

The Tar Heels also found their stride offensively as they finished with 656 total yards, including 399 on the ground. It remains to be seen whether either team can hang with Clemson, but the Fighting Irish and Tar Heels are now alone with the Tigers as the last unbeaten teams in the ACC after another wild day of college football.

UNC Asheville went into lockdown after threat BLM mural threat

Posted on

The University of North Carolina Asheville campus went into lockdown the morning of October 9 after the college received a threat demanding that the campus’s Black Lives Matter mural be painted over, according to UNC Asheville’s BulldogAlert.

The morning after receiving the threatening email, the university instructed its faculty, staff, and students to “shelter in place” while telling non-essential workers to head home. As a result, all classes — both in-person and virtual — were cancelled.

Federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies investigated the threat until the lockdown orders were lifted almost 10 hours later. The school will still keep a “vigilant police presence” on the campus for the next few days, according to a video update by UNC Asheville Chancellor Nancy J. Cable.

The email threat did not mention anyone specifically, although details about the threat have not been released.

“The impact on our academic community has been very significant,” Cable said in the video. “This has been an exceedingly difficult day for our UNCA academic community, our students, our faculty, our staff.

Cable is asking faculty and students to remain “vigilant” as they continue their investigation.

“We remain fully committed to our University values of diversity, equity and inclusion,” Cable said in a statement in the final BulldogAlert update. “Black Lives Matter. This is about our University values that respect our students’ first amendment rights to express their views about the pain and sadness at the senseless loss of so many lives.”

According to a report by ABC 13 News, lead organizer of Asheville’s Black Lives Matter group Delores Venable — who was “disturbed but not deterred” — said that the threat to the campus was meant to “instill fear.”

“I think we live in a society where we know that Black Lives Matter is more than

R-0 may be the most important scientific term you’ve never heard of when it comes to stopping the coronavirus pandemic.

USA TODAY

I thought the end of my senior year of high school was disappointing. But then I noticed coronavirus symptoms on my first day of college classes.

During my senior year of high school, I went home after school on a Friday in March, excited that we might have two weeks off. Even then I didn’t think it was realistic to expect the full break, and I expected to go back to school the following Monday. But that Friday would be my last real day of high school ever. College visits, prom, graduation and so many more great events to seal off my final year of high school were all thrown out the window. All that I had looked forward to in high school was taken away.

Even though I was unable to celebrate these exciting milestones with all my friends and family, I was hopeful for college. I was accepted into my dream school, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and was eager for the time in my life when I would make many of my best memories, as everyone had always told me happened during college. 

Optimistic about the fall semester, I was able to move in a couple days before classes started on Monday, Aug. 10. On the first day of classes, only one of mine was in-person. The 40-person class was held in a 200-person lecture hall and seats were blocked off, so everybody was spaced out appropriately. Later that day is when my symptoms started to develop.

Grading the Boston College Defense Against UNC

Posted on

On Saturday, Boston College lost a heartbreaker to UNC 26-22. The Eagles had another last minute drive that looked to tie the game, but Trey Morrison intercepted the two point conversion and returned it for two points for the Tar Heels. We’ve broken the game down in many ways, and now it’s time to hand out grades, beginning with the defense.

(Because of COVID-19 this evaluation was done using the network TV feed. There certainly were moments the video missed. We did the best we could to evaluate what was visible. Also for grading: A: Great Game, B:Good Game, C: Average Game D: Below Average F: Poor Game)

Coaching: A. If you were to say before the game that BC would hold UNC to 24 points on defense, I would have told you they win that game. If you told me that BC’s defense would hold the Tar Heels to three points in the second half. They win that game. All the talk so far has been about the coaching ability of Jeff Hafley, and withe good reason, he has done a great job. But Tem Lukabu has quietly fixed BC’s defense and made it one of the better units in the country. After two tough drives, BC’s defense basically had one blip the rest of the game, it was an excellent coaching job and gameplan by Lukabu and his staff. 

Marcus Valdez: B-. Another sack up front by Valdez, who continues to show improvement this year. Would like to see him more consistently get home for pressure, which I think this whole line had trouble with against Sam Howell.

Chibueze Onwuka: C. Didn’t record a tackle in the game, though UNC did a nice job running up the middle. UNC’s offensive line gave Sam Howell a ton of

Grading the Boston College Offense Against UNC

On Saturday, Boston College lost a heartbreaker to UNC 26-22. The Eagles had another last minute drive that looked to tie the game, but Trey Morrison intercepted the two point conversion and returned it for two points for the Tar Heels. We’ve broken the game down in many ways, and now it’s time to hand out grades, beginning with the offense.

(Because of COVID-19 this evaluation was done using the network TV feed. There certainly were moments the video missed. We did the best we could to evaluate what was visible. Also for grading: A: Great Game, B:Good Game, C: Average Game D: Below Average F: Poor Game)

Coaching: B-. Phil Jurkovec threw the ball 56 times, which was one short of the team record. They only rushed the ball 19 times. Some of this could be due to scheme issues hampered by injuries. But BC needs to find a way to move the ball on the ground here and there. Clearly Cignetti’s system works best with quicker backs that can also catch the ball out of the backfield. However, as mentioned in the Offensive Observations, it seems like BC could benefit from using Jurkovec in designed runs and zone reads. Didn’t hate the play calling, but would love to see this addition come along as the season goes along. 

Phil Jurkovec: A-. Phenomenal game by the transfer who again tried to put the offense on his back in the comeback. His ability to shake tackles is impressive, heard multiple references to Ben Roethlisbeger. Few things he still needs to improve on. Some of his passes needed a bit more touch, even Hafley said he needs to find some of the receivers who are open. But, he’s basically a freshman playing out there. And he looked really good.
