Pitt Vs. Cincinnati: Things Just Got Worse, Folks; Panthers Clobbered By Bearcats, 34-10 (Cardiac Hill)

This blog has never been about doom and gloom. Okay, not much. There was Cinci in ’09, Scottie Reynolds, and … you get the point. And this early into a season? Never. It’s not time to hit the panic button just yet, but … things are bad, friends. In particular, this football team is bad. Or if you’re not a sports fan, in the words of Simon Cowell, bizarrely dreadful…

The ACC: When Does Basketball Season Start? (Dr. Saturday)

At least the top of the ACC had a decent start to the season. Clemson had a statement victory, beating Auburn at the Georgia Dome. Florida State and North Carolina romped against their FCS opponents. But the bottom half of the conference had a discouraging weekend, which continues a worrisome trend for the ACC that began last January…

What Coles’ Loss Means for Virginia Tech (ESPN’s ACC Blog)

An already unproven group of Virginia Tech wide receivers took a major hit Thursday with the news that senior D.J. Coles is out for the season with a knee injury. The Hokies went into the season without their top two receivers from a year ago in Danny Coale and Jarrett Boykin, so you can bet there is an even greater sense of urgency for somebody to step up with Coles now out of the mix, too…

Staring Down the Barrel of Clemson’s New Pistol: What Does An Opponent See? (Orange and White)

Standing in the middle linebacker’s position, staring down the barrel of Clemson new ‘Pistol,’ what does an opposing player see? Mostly Dalton Freeman and Tajh Boyd. The invisibility of current national rushing leader Andre Ellington is just part of the beauty of an alignment formation that will likely be heavily incorporated into Chad Morris’ offensive scheme over the course of the season…

Can Amerson Bounce Back From His Tennessee Disaster? (Wilmington Star-News)

N.C. State’s rude awakening at the Chick-Fil-A Kickoff Classic on Friday was certainly a team effort. David Amerson’s contribution to that effort just happened to stand out a little more than most. Coming off a season in which he set an ACC record with 13 interceptions and brimming with confidence expressed for all to see this summer on Twitter…

Fuller Steps Into Family Spotlight (Richmond Times-Dispatch)

His oldest brother was honored on the field during the game. One younger brother graced the cover of the Virginia Tech game program. Another is being hailed as one of Virginia Tech’s biggest recruiting successes ever. But when Monday night’s season opener against Georgia Tech was over, it was senior wide receiver Corey Fuller who was the center of attention…
