Growth of Logan Thomas Will Be Fun to Watch in 2012 (Gobbler Country)

2011 didn’t finish as planned. The Hokies, after finishing 11-1 in the regular season, went into the ACC Championship game ranked No. 5 in the country and considered a favorite to win their fifth conference title. Instead, they were embarrassed 38-10 by Clemson and left many fans disgusted at the sight they saw in Charlotte, North Carolina…

Chase Rettig To Be Challenged During Spring Ball (BC Interruption)

Even with all the change this offseason, one aspect of Boston College game that isn’t expected to change this year is the starting quarterback. It’s pretty much assumed that junior Chase Rettig, who has started for a season and a half, will continue to be QB1. But with another Offensive Coordinator taking over, could Rettig’s job be in jeopardy?…

Georgia Tech Schedule Done, ACC Release Soon (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

With perhaps the largest remaining hurdle out of the way, the ACC could release its 2012 football schedule as early as Monday.

A combination of injuries, inconsistent play and lack of pressure put on the quarterback in those situations made UNC’s third down defense putrid at best…

It seemed fitting that former North Carolina DE Quinton Coples should come across a tad defensive Saturday at the NFL scouting combine. Coples comes with concerns about his speed and inconsistent effort — questions he thought he had answered with a strong Senior Bowl effort. “I had a great Senior Bowl. I went there and showed I could compete at the highest level”…

Dabo Swinney Still Confident in Mike Bellamy (ESPN ACC Blog)

Clemson running back Mike Bellamy is out of coach Dabo Swinney’s doghouse. Kind of. Sort of. “He’s out of it, but he’s attached to a leash, sitting outside,” Swinney said with a laugh. “He’s kind of like Snoopy, sleeping on top of it.” It’s been a rough start for Bellamy’s Clemson career, as he was sent home from the ACC championship game in Charlotte, and then suspended from the Orange Bowl and the practices leading up to it for a violation of team rules…
