What If: FSU Were a Legend? (Every Day Should Be Saturday)

Florida State to the Big Ten is such a fucking nutballs unpossible designer impostor realignment rumor that it is not worth taking the time to explain away. (And it is definitely not worth linking to, but if you’re really curious, google “spurious message board bullshit” and then throw your computer into a lake.) But! We can still imagine the delightful juxtaposition that is a hypothetical schedule for FSU, Legends Division Member…

Spring Marks Fresh Start for Boston College Football (MetroWest Daily News)

Finally, after more than three months of talking, getting to know each other, Steve Addazio and his football team met on the field. Addazio was hired to be the new football coach at Boston College back in early December, after the Eagles went 2-10 in 2012 under Frank Spaziani. Spaziani was fired barely 24 hours after the end of the last game, and less than two weeks later Addazio was chosen by first-year athletic director Brad Bates…

Fitting the Pieces (‘NoleNation)

Replacing EJ: Quarterback EJ Manuel had his critics, but in four seasons at Florida State, he was 4-0 in bowl games as a starter or in relief for most of the game, went 3-0 against Miami and guided the team to two ACC championship games, winning one. Since Fisher inherited an NFL starter in Christian Ponder in 2010, with Manuel coming off a freshman season in which he was the Gator Bowl MVP, this will be the first time the Seminoles coach will have to oversee a battle for the starting job…

Randy Edsall Excited About Big Ten Move (York Daily Record)

Randy Edsall is settling in as the leader of the University of Maryland football team. He rooted for the Terps and went to their games and sports camps while growing up in Glen Rock. And through it all, they belonged to the Atlantic Coast Conference. Yet, there always has been a sticking point, as far as he’s concerned. Just ask Maryland’s head coach who Maryland’s biggest rival is?…

Miami Hurricanes Football: Eddie Johnson Wastes Talent and Opportunity (Rant Sports)

Eddie Johnson was one of the Miami Hurricane’s rising stars. A freshman All-American linebacker, Johnson was off to a great start, notching 59 tackles and leading the team with 7.5 tackles for a loss last season. It is just the way you want to see a young player blossom. Now, Johnson’s career as a ‘Cane may be over.
