NO HORRIBLY PATHETIC TAR HEELS DRAFTED

Has anybody seen Julius Peppers? Or better yet, how about the next Julius Peppers? Anybody?

How bad is UNC football? So bad that not a single player was drafted by an NFL team last weekend. The only other ACC school that can make such a prideful boast? Duke, of course. So, the North Carolina student athletes must be concentrating on their school work so they must dominate the list of ACC All-Academic football players? Again, no. One Tar Heel was All-Academic. So, they’re bad and they're not smart.

Here is the breakdown of how many players were drafted from each school. The second number in ( ) is the number of players on the ACC All-Academic team. You’ll never guess who leads the way on the All-Academic list…Miami with 8 followed by Boston College with 6. Kudos to Josh Wilson of Maryland and Greg Olsen of Miami for being on both lists.

Florida State 5 (4), Clemson 5 (2), Miami 4 (8), NC State 3 (1), Virginia Tech 3 (1 – kicker), Virginia 2 (1), Georgia Tech 2 (3), Wake Forest 2 (2), Boston College 2 (6), UNC 0 (1) and Duke 0 (6).
