The ACC continues to lead the way with nine bids, but thanks to 0-2 weeks for both Clemson and Georgia Tech, don¡¯t expect the conference to grab 10 or 11. Syracuse, which followed up a big home win over Duke with a loss at Louisville on Sunday, is barely hanging in. While the Orange own six top-50 wins, with three of those home victories over top-20 opponents, they¡¯re a miserable 2-10 away from the Carrier Dome. Syracuse might just need an ACC tournament win or two in Brooklyn, where Jim Boeheim¡¯s team lost to South Carolina in November, to remain in the field on Selection Sunday.
That¡¯s not only good enough to get John Groce¡¯s team a look, but they¡¯re now the first team out! Victories over VCU (in Miami) and Michigan (at home) and a sweep of the Northwestern help the Fighting Illini, while a sweep at the hands of Penn State, a home loss to Winthrop (even if the Eagles are the Big South¡¯s one seed), and road setback at Indiana don¡¯t. Speaking of Northwestern, the Wildcats have won just one of their last five and desperately need a home win over either surging Michigan or Purdue this week to feel a little safer.
Game Kids James Wisniewski Jersey There was plenty of time to establish the run with their running backs, of which they have a plethora. It was their clear choice not to do so. This does not appear to be a one-time thing, either.
Go back to the previous week against the Chicago Bears, when the 49ers led 17-7 at halftime and 20-7 heading into the fourth quarter before eventually losing 28-20. Gore and Hyde combined for 17 carries then. That’s a little bit better, but don’t forget that the Bears’ defense was historically bad against the run just a season ago.
Game Mens Zach Laskey Jersey Kaepernick ended up throwing 34 times in that game, including three very unfortunate interceptions, two of which came in the fourth quarter. Last Sunday, Kaepernick threw the ball 37 times with just one touchdown pass to show for it.
