Football - Jackets Clinch ACC Championship Berth

Well, it wasn't pretty, but the Jackets get the win, defeating North Carolina 7-0. Yeah, you read right - 7-0. Funny game really. The Jackets dominated time of possesion, 35:04 to 24:56. The defense was really good - and had to be because the offense really wasn't...... minus another Tashard Choice 120+ yard game. Guess who leads the ACC in rushing in conference games? TC is right. Anyhow, it took two redzone INT's for the Jackets to preserve the shutout, including helping overcome a Reggie Ball INT.

Anyhow, I wasn't able to watch the game, so I welcome others to post comments. My main message would be - good teams don't "find" ways to win - they make them. Once again this squad did just that. Give them props. They know they didn't have a great day, but they did what they had to do yet again, this time against an opponent going through a coaching transition where you never know what you're going to get.

Congrats to your ACC Coastal Division Champions. On to Duke then Athens, the Jax baby!!!
