Swinney ‘Embarrassed’ for Spurrier After Gamecock Coach’s Latest Verbal Jab (Orange and White)

Dabo Swinney has always thought, and spoken, highly of University of South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore – an in-state product that the Clemson coach did all the could to recruit for the Tigers’ backfield. That was the case again Sunday when Swinney was asked about the horrific knee injury the Gamecocks’ junior suffered against Tennessee on Saturday…

Chryst Letting Pitt’s Opportunity Speak for Itself (ESPN’s Notre Dame Blog)

Watching his brother Rick play baseball at Notre Dame three decades ago has dampened whatever mystique this weekend’s trip could bring for first-year Pitt coach Paul Chryst. But he knows a visit to the nation’s No. 3 team is a big opportunity for his players, and he is hoping the Panthers don’t take it for granted. “There’s great history there,” Chryst said Monday of Notre Dame…

Maryland’s Future with Shawn Petty: It’s Time for (Another) New Offensive Plan (Testudo Times)

If it feels like I’ve done three of these posts in the past two weeks, it’s because I have. But once again Maryland’s offense will be led by a new signal-caller, once again forcing Mike Locksley to make substantial changes to his offensive gameplan, and once again it’s a true freshman taking the reins. The difference? Well, this time it’s a linebacker. The blogger-est thing to do in this situation is, of course, to crack wise…

Gio Bernard Punt Return Among UNC’s Greatest Football Plays (Charlotte Observer)

On the walls of the press box at North Carolina’s Kenan Stadium, some of the great football plays in school history live on. There’s Connor Barth after his 42-yard field goal beat Miami in 2004. There’s the UNC defense, standing up N.C. State’s T.A. McLendon at the goal line during the final moments of another victory that same season…

NC Sate Quarterback Mike Glennon Set to Climb Draft Boards (

Mike Glennon might be the best quarterback available in the 2013 NFL Draft. I know that statement will take many by surprise, considering the endless hype and speculation surrounding West Virginia’s Geno Smith and USC’s Matt Barkley, but there is a growing sentiment in the NFL scouting community that the N.C. State star could be the crown jewel of this year’s quarterback class…

Vegas vs. BCS Computers: The Florida State Debate (Tomahawk Nation)

The Seminoles are outside the top 10 in all of the BCS computers and outside of the top 20 three. We’ve previous discussed how the ill-advised 2004 changes to the BCS formula damaged the system and set up some seriously wonky results. In particular, removing the MOV component creates a situation in which Florida State would be rewarded for a 1-point win over Duke just as much as it would a 41-point win (which actually happened)…

Mutlipurpose Threat RB Dallas Crawford Gets his Shot for the Miami Hurricanes (Miami Herald)

Hurricanes running back Dallas Crawford has been waiting patiently — and sometimes not so patiently — for his chance to shine. He has impersonated the opposing teams’ quarterbacks on the scout team. He has played running back on the scout team. He has played receiver on the scout team. And he has played in every game on special teams, his season highlight being a 9-yard interception return on a botched Bethune-Cookman fake punt…
