Pittsburgh Reaches Deal to Join Big East in 2013 (CBS Sports)

Pittsburgh and the Big East have reached an agreement, allowing the Panthers to join the ACC in 2013. The Panthers will pay the Big East $7.5 million — the original $5 million exit fee plus an additional $2.5 million — to join the ACC in 2013 instead of 2014. “It was time to move forward,” Pittsburgh athletic director Steve Pederson told “It [the buyout] was reasonable”…

Miami Hurricanes Dismiss Safety Ray Ray Armstrong (Miami Herald)

Ray-Ray Armstrong’s troublesome football career at the University of Miami is over. The senior safety was kicked off the team Wednesday morning — about a month after reported that he discussed interaction with a booster via Twitter. Although UM has yet to explain why Armstrong was dismissed, the school did say he can continue to be enrolled as a scholarship student to complete his degree…

Clemson Drops Series With Ole Miss, Oklahoma State (Orange and White)

The first major reality of the ACC’s new nine-game football schedule hit home for Clemson Wednesday.

LB Jermaine Carter Becomes Fourth Friendship Collegiate Player to Pick Terps (Baltimore Sun)

Jermaine Carter has probably paid closer attention to Maryland football recruiting than most prospects on the Terps’ radar. With three high school teammates already committed to UM, it would probably be hard to ignore what Randy Edsall’s program has done lately on the trail. So over the past month or so, Carter couldn’t help but notice how many linebackers – including two of his three committed teammates…

Wake Forest Cornerbacks Worth Watching (ESPN’s ACC Blog)

This summer you’ll hear plenty about NC State cornerback David Amerson and safety Earl Wolff, about Florida State’s secondary, about Kyle Fuller at Virginia Tech, and Georgia Tech’s veteran defensive backs. Odds are you won’t hear much, though, about a cornerback named Kevin Johnson. That should change this fall…

  1. The more teams I see teams dropping OOC games, the more I dislike the 9-game ACC conference football schedule. Just kill it now … or at least kill it in a few years.

    On another note, Maryland has cleaned up at Friendship Collegiate (DC) this year. Waiting for two announcements from Maryland targets in the next two days – Taivon Jacobs today and Kingsley Opara tomorrow. Hopefully it’ll be good news for the Terps.

    • Yeah. I was originally all for the nine-game schedule, but the more I see teams handcuffed by it, the less I’m in favor.

      The Terps are doing a fantastic job capitalizing on local recruiting grounds. I think Edsall actually has them on the right track in that department.
