Tom O’Brien is Better at Trolling Than You (BC Interruption)

To say that Tom O’Brien’s breakups with his previous two employers were amicable would be a gross exaggeration. Back in November, the 64-year old coach was fired at N.C.

All Eyes on Sammy Watkins This Spring (ESPN’s ACC Blog)

Clemson opens spring practice today with exceedingly high hopes — perhaps higher than at any other point in the Dabo Swinney era.

Chryst provided a bit of a sarcastic answer when asked the question today at spring practice. From the Pitt Athletics Department: No, we’ll name him by Labor Day.” (laughs)…

Chairman of the Board: Rod McDowell Steps to Front of Tigers’ RB Committee (Orange and White)

If it takes a committee to get the job done in Clemson’s backfield, Dabo Swinney believes he has just the men to take care of his Tigers’ running-game business. This spring, Rod McDowell, D.J. Howard and Zac Brooks will step out of the shadows, helped along by in-house addition C.J. Davidson, and soon to be joined by Wayne Gallman and Tyshon Dye…
