There it Goes Again (ESPN’s NoleNation)

Twenty minutes after No. 3 Florida State’s 17-16 loss Saturday was over, as NC State fans still whooped and cheered in the parking lots surrounding Carter-Finley Stadium, Jimbo Fisher took to the podium and awaited the firing squad. It was Fisher, as much as anyone, who had stoked the fires of immense expectations this season. He knew the horror stories of years past, faced the same stinging questions in 2011…

The Football Capital of the ACC is Tobacco Road? (Tar Heel Blog)

Alternate title: Holy Crap the Mayans were Right! On Saturday UNC, Duke and NC State all won home games in ACC play. According to the N&O’s Joe Giglio this is only the second time in history all three Triangle schools have won ACC home games in football on the same day. The most recent was October 15th, 1994 and before that it was 1962…

ACC Football Remains Awful (Washington Post)

Welcome to another thrilling season of Atlantic Coast Conference football, where all the games that really matter are played before basketball practice begins. Practice starts for college basketball teams this Friday. The ACC football season — except for players, coaches, close friends and family members — ceased to have any real significance late on Saturday night…

Boston College Football: Why the Program Must Fire Frank Spaziani Midseason (BC Interruption)

…I used to think along the same lines here. Play the season out, hire a new Athletic Director and hire a new coach in the offseason. But after yesterday’s 34-31 loss to Army — a game in which the Eagles were unprepared and out-coached for 60 minutes — the program must fire Spaz midseason.Leaving Spaz on to coach the final 6-7 games of the season serves no purpose but to further embarrass the program…

No Matter What Beamer and Co. Say, This is NOT a Good Football Team (Gobbler Country)

If you’re looking for a thought-provoking, soul-crushing analysis, this is not going to be it. If you want that, read this: The Gobbler Country Manifesto I posted after last week’s loss still applies in nearly every way. If anything, the only thing necessary is to ADD to that 6,600+ word post, and I don’t think I have it in me right now. Don’t think that my lack of post-game reaction is a lack of emotion over what I just watched…

Cutcliffe, Duke Program May Have Turned Corner (ACC Sports Journal)

It might be time to start taking the Duke football program seriously. As September turned into October, David Cutcliffe’s fifth Blue Devil team provided evidence on the field that it is ready to climb out of the ACC basement suite that it has occupied for most of the last 15 years. But more importantly, the university provided evidence that it was ready to pour money into what has been the ACC’s weakest football program…

As Offensive Struggles Continue, Edsall’s Frustrations Mount (The Diamondback)

Randy Edsall could hardly hide his disappointment moments after the Terrapins football team notched a 19-14 win over Wake Forest on Saturday. Sure, the second-year coach had just recorded his first ACC win in more than 13 months. And sure, his defense allowed just 45 second-half yards to a team that blew it out, 31-10, last November. But Edsall wasn’t completely satisfied…
