After one of the worst regular seasons in ACC football history, the conference did extremely well in the post-season going 4-2 in bowl games (6-3 if you count future members Louisville, Pittsburgh and Syracuse). The surprising bowl performance can’t change the fact that there are some inherent financial deficiencies within the conference that make it difficult for some athletic programs like Florida State to remain viable…

Season of Change Begins for Florida State (ESPN’s ACC Blog)

Part of it is that better programs tend to swallow up a good bit of the top guys and star linemen aren’t always hanging around. But Paul Chryst is hoping to change some of that. The Panthers may not always get the best offensive linemen, but Chryst not only landed one this year in Dorian Johnson, but he’s stockpiling some depth there as well…

Former Gators QB Jacoby Brissett Transferring to North Carolina State (Palm Beach Post)

Jacoby Brissett, a former Dwyer High School star, is headed to North Carolina State, a source said. Brissett played the past two seasons at Florida and fell behind fellow true sophomore Jeff Driskel last season. After sitting out this year, he will be eligible to play for the Wolfpack as a red-shirt junior in 2014. In six games this season, he completed 23 of 35 passes for 249 yards with a touchdown pass.
