ACC Blogger's Roundtable- Week

This week's round table is hosted by FromTheRumbleSeat.com, our friends from GTech.    FSU44 provides our answers!

1. Alright fellas, this is your turn to apologize to the Boston College Eagles who went to Hell and back and have now arrived as the 3rd team for the ACC (and only team in the Atlantic) to be bowl eligible. You know you were snickering in the preseason. Also, give a high five to Mark Herzlich for finishing his last treatment of chemo.

We're sorry.  The Eagles play great defense and have also done a nice job avoiding GTech and Miami in the Coastal.  Nice job Mark!
2. An Orange Bowl victory over a Boise/ TCU or an Orange Bowl victory over a Penn State/ Cincy team - which means more for the conference? Is there even a difference? 
Not a big difference, but if the ACC champ does beat Boise/TCU, the media will just use that as proof that the non-BCS team was overrated.  So, beating No. 1 in the Big East or No. 1/2 in the Big Ten is probably better. 

3. Enough with the CJ Spillers, the Christian Ponders, and the Jacory Harrises.  We wanna talk defense.  Who is the defensive POTY thus far in the ACC?
 
   DeAndre McDanielDerrick Morgan, Allen Bailey, in that order.
 
4. Recently, Bird compared the Atlantic to the Big 12 North.Is this a fair comparison?  The Coastal is currently 8-2 against the Atlantic.  There are still 8 interdivision games left.  Can the Atlantic redeem itself this season?
No, the Atlantic won't redeem itself, but several of the Atlantic's losses, e.g. FSU to Miami and Clemson to GT, could have easily gone the other way.  The gap at the top of each Conference (if you can find the top of the Atlantic) probably isn't as great as the results indicate.
 
5. Tailgating is essential to all things football. In Atlanta, the tailgating game of choice is cornhole. What is your game of choice to pass the time?
 
Beirut, aka Beer Pong.  In order to deal with FSU's "defense," some of us in Tallahassee have switched out the beer for liquor.

6. Let's cut to the chase. There are two kinds of people: sheep and sharks. Sharks are winners and they don't look back 'cause they don't have necks. Necks are for sheep. Is your team full of sharks or is your team full of sheep?
 
FSU has sharks on offense, and on defense, a mixture of Sharks who were never taught how to swim properly and Sheep who have no idea they are Baaaing all over the field.

 7. Create a cocktail in the spirit of your school and explain it to us. Non-edible ingredients are allowed and encouraged.
In a chilled shotglass, pour half Goldschlager every time the offense scores a touchdown--   Every time the defense allows a touchdown, fill the other half with Aftershock.  Drink and repeat, and pray that you are 1) still standing by the end of the game, and b) that your last shot is only half full.
