Why Miami Will Win Coastal Division in ’13 (ESPN’s ACC Blog)

Buried beneath pounds of paperwork from the NCAA is the fact that Miami’s depth chart should be good enough to win the Coastal Division in 2013. With so much attention focused on the NCAA investigation, Nevin Shapiro has gotten more ink (unfortunately) than quarterback Stephen Morris. And Morris is going to be very, very good. As Miami begins spring practices on Saturday, the Canes do so underneath a cloud…

Let’s Get Nerdy With Florida State and ACC Football Stats (Tomahawk Nation)

Our friend Bill Connelly of SB Nation has put together some really awesome stats. In this, he charts how many passes of each distance were thrown by a group of 43 college quarterbacks in the 2012 season. He also has the data for the percentages of passes completed at each distance.

Vandy, Duke Part of Football Brain Wave (Chattanooga Times Free Press)

The 2012 college football season was one for the brainiacs. Stanford won its first Rose Bowl since the 1971 season. Northwestern won its first bowl of any kind since 1948. Vanderbilt racked up nine victories for the first time since 1915, and Duke earned its first bowl invitation in 18 years. “Whether you call us the private elites or the academic elites, I think it’s pretty cool, myself,” Duke coach David Cutcliffe said…

Position Change Beneficial to Florida State’s LaMarcus Joyner (Rant Sports)

When Florida State Seminoles Safety Lamarcus Joyner announced that he would return for his senior season in Tallahassee, you could hear the Seminole fanbase breathe a collective sigh of relief. With the departures of some key members on a top ranked defense, having one of your leaders decide to come back is a blessing in itself…

Dabo Swinney Says Notion of Clowney or Watkins Passing Up Junior Seasons is ‘Absurd’ (Orange and White)

The question has been asked: what does Jadeveon Clowney have to gain by playing his junior season at South Carolina? Everyone knows what he has to lose.
