Brandon Jenkins’ season-ending injury heartbreaking development, serious challenge for Florida State (Tomahawk Nation)

In the wake of what had been a gleeful start to this highly anticipated 2012 season, Florida State received some heartbreaking news late Monday, when it was first reported, and later confirmed, that senior defensive end Brandon Jenkins would miss the season with an injury to his foot suffered in the Seminoles’ 69-3 season-opening win against Murray State Saturday…

Chase Rettig; A Statistical Aberration Or Birth of a New Quarterback? (BC Interruption)

Even though yesterday’s loss was painful, and there were parts that were just downright bad, it’s hard to overlook the play of junior quarterback Chase Rettig. Since the departure of Matt Ryan in 2007 Eagles fans have clamored for another quarterback that can not only manage the ball, but can effectively move the ball down field with his arm…

Syracuse Football: We’re Probably Gonna Start 0-2, But We’re Going to a Bowl Game (Troy Nunes Is An Absolute Magician)

I could recap my thoughts from Syracuse’s 42-41 loss to Northwestern but I’m not sure what I can add to the conversation that hasn’t already been said. Make sure you’ve read up on Jeremy’s recap from the Dome and Dan’s post-game analysis for the good stuff. Has there ever been a more encouraging loss in the history of Syracuse Orange football?…

Spaziani, Eagles Staying Optimistic (Boston Globe)

After watching film of Boston College’s 41-32 loss to Miami Saturday, coach Frank Spaziani came up with an oxymoron that somehow made perfect sense. “It was a lost victory,” he said.

The 32 points were their most against a Football Bowl Subdivision team since they scored 52 in a win over North Carolina State in 2009…

UM’s Duke Johnson a Star From His First Steps (Sun Sentinel)

Already, there was a rush to anoint him, even before Duke Johnson finished his first Saturday in college football. Three carries in, Luther Campbell, whose hip-hop voice is part of University of Miami lore, tweeted, “Duke Johnson will be the best RB in the history of UM.” Dolphins running back Lamar Miller, whose steps he follows, tweeted, “Duke Johnson is going to be something”…

Sims Impressive in Quiet Debut (The Daily Progress)

A bullet into the gut of Colter Phillips. A play-action drop-in to an open E.J. Scott on the far sideline. A call to Scott again, this time coming in the fashion of a well-delivered out. A tipped ball that still found the breadbasket of Dominique Terrell. A quick scan of the defense and a toss to Tim Smith in traffic. All five of Phillip Sims’ first passes as a Virginia Cavalier had a slightly different theme to them…

Tigers Turn the Page, Set Foundation for Dabo Swinney’s Long-Term Plan (Orange and White)

For nine long months, the Tigers had done almost everything right. They did their best to turn the page. They went back to work. They made themselves strong and faster. Young players began to take themselves, and their responsibilities, more seriously. They worked their way through a spring of learning, developing and more installation on offense, and jumped into new defensive coordinator Brent Venables’ fresh start with attentiveness and enthusiasm…
