Radakovich’s Exit Shows Disparity Between Tech, Georgia (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

It’s almost always about money. There may be other factors in changing jobs: Going back home, returning to an alma mater, or, as Dan Radakovich said Tuesday, having the desire to “get into a collegiate environment. I hadn’t had the opportunity to be in a pure college town.” A nice sentiment. But primarily it’s still about the money, either what one can make or one can spend…

Clemson Focused on Successive BCS Bids (Fox Sports Carolinas)

This time a year ago, Clemson was 8-0 and ranked No. 6 in the nation. Yet, Tigers’ coach Dabo Swinney believes his current edition is better situated from an all-encompassing perspective despite having a loss on its resume. In part, it’s the program’s growth and maturity driving his thinking…

Turnover Battle Winning the War For Clemson (Orange and White)

Win the turnover margin. Win the game. That’s a major part of Dabo Swinney’s “plan to win,” and much more than last season, indeed, leading to victories in college football. Teams that lost the turnover battle still had a 43.2 winning percentage last season, according to Marty Coleman at Seldom Used Reserve…

Pitt Has a Chance to Salvage Its Season (Cardiac Hill)

Pitt’s football season started in the worst possible way. A loss to an FCS team and a blowout to a conference foe had many Panthers fans, including myself, wondering if the season was already lost. But wins in four of the last six games have the Panthers back at .500 and fans are finally feeling more confident about their team…

Last year around this time, the Syracuse Orange football team was 5-2, coming off a throttling of nationally-ranked West Virginia and in the hunt for the Big East title. We figured, at the very least, this team could win 1-2 more games and get us back to a bowl game for the second-straight year. We were wrong. So very, very wrong. Here in 2012, the Orange were left for dead a couple weeks ago at 2-4…

As Joe Vellano Goes, So Goes Terps’ Defense (Washington Times)

If Joe Vellano has somewhat anonymously authored another stellar season for Maryland, it surely isn’t for lack of effort.  Linebacker Demetrius Hartsfield smiled at the mention of the defensive end’s name last week, then described a play from a few days earlier in a loss to N.C. State. Hartsfield was the free man on a toss play and was in line to make a stop…

Streak Defies Explanation (NoleNation)

Before the season began, back when the running game was still in shambles and the offensive line was a mess, Chris Thompson was asked about the streak. There might not be a more optimistic person in college football than Thompson. Just 10 months removed from a broken back, he had spent the summer pushing his anything-is-possible philosophy. The streak laughs at optimism…
