Maybe even more ACC schools would join, should that league grow shakier. But what would the Big 12 do with Florida State and Clemson? How would the Big 12 align divisions?

Xavieran HS Football and Track Standout Laray Smith Tries to Pick a College That Will Accommodate His Interest in Both Sports (New York Daily News)

Laray Smith has a good problem, sort of like having too much money or too many girlfriends. A standout at Xaverian in both football and track, Smith is having a hard time picking a college to accommodate his interest in both sports. Initially, Smith was sold on the idea of playing football at Syracuse. But that was before coach Doug Marrone left to become the new coach of the NFL’s Buffalo Bills…
