SEC, Big 12, ACC, Big Ten Discuss Power Bowl Alliance (CBS Sports)

League officials have discussed a multisite, rotational bowl partnership of the SEC, Big 12, Big Ten and ACC to maximize matchups over six years, according to two sources with knowledge of those discussions. The Music City Bowl in Nashville, Belk Bowl in Charlotte and Alamo Bowl in San Antonio are among the sites being mentioned…

ACC Football 2013 Travel Distances: Boston College Logging Some Serious Frequent Flyer Miles in 2013 (BC Interruption)

When the 2013 ACC football schedule was released, I noted that the Eagles don’t have the luxury of having an extra week off on their second of two cross-country trips before jumping right back into ACC Atlantic Division play. If the Eagles struggle down the stretch, get ready for the “road weary Boston College football team” to become the #ACCNarratives of choice as BC is logging some serious frequent flyer miles this season…

Point/Counterpoint: If Given a Choice, Would You Place UConn in the Big Ten or ACC? (Daily Campus)

Tim: At this point, I’m not getting very optimistic about the possibility of UConn leaving the Conference With No Name. A move would require a domino falling in another conference, which does not seem imminent. Add in that UConn is about to take home $20-30 million as a result of the settlement with the Catholic – offsetting the abysmal television deal with ESPN – and it does not seem like we are going anywhere soon…

Five Bold Predictions for Pitt Football in 2013 (Cardiac Hill)

With spring practice upon us, there’s been a lot of talk about the upcoming football season. So with that, I offer you five bold (and far too early) predictions for this year: 5. Pitt knocks off at least one heavyweight: The big three on the schedule for Pitt are Florida State, Notre Dame, and Miami. If the season started right now, all three would likely be favored ahead of the Panthers. But the bet here is that Pitt gets at least one win out of that group…

Ben Boulware Takes Note, Shuey Plays Swing-man, Jenkins Mans Three Spots (Orange and White)

Maybe he can’t be in uniform yet, but that didn’t stop incoming freshman linebacker Ben Boulware from participating in Clemson’s first spring practice on Wednesday. As the Tigers began defensive drills, the T.L. Hanna High product – who was rated as the state of South Carolina’s top senior player by ESPN – was watching and learning alongside Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables…

Inside the Clemson Offense: The Hook and Lateral (Shakin’ the Southland)

As with all “non-standard” plays, the playcaller will want to be careful regarding the timing of this play call. Clemson used it at a critical juncture in the Peach Bowl last season. Today we’ll examine the play and the situation surrounding this play call against Louisiana State. First the play: Clemson’s receivers line up in their standard spread doubles formation locations with the QB taking a direct snap from the Pistol…
