Big Ten to Realign Divisions East/West: And You, ACC? (BC Interruption)

The Big Ten is set to fix a two-year mistake when they realign divisions along east/west lines in 2014. Sources told ESPN.com that the league will go with a geographic split in 2014, with time zones expected to be the rough divider. The only question now is the treatment of Purdue and Indiana, both which are located in the Eastern Time Zone (along with Maryland, Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, Penn State and Rutgers)…

Florida State Spring Football 2013 Preview: Who Will Be the Starting Quarterback? (Tomahawk Nation)

FSU spring practice kicks off March 20 at 3:30 and our Florida State football spring 2013 preview continues with a look at the quarterback position, which was good, but not great in 2012, as FSU turned in a top-25 offense (we are aware that FSU’s traditional numbers, like total yards and points, are off the charts, but one must adjust for the quality of competition, and top-25 is probably much more accurate than top-five)…

Cutcliffe: Staff is Reason to Expect More Success (Durham Herald-Sun)

Coming off the most successful Duke football season in nearly two decades, Blue Devils coach David Cutcliffe found himself with recruiting to do. There were players to add, of course, but Cutcliffe talked Wednesday about the work he did in filling a pair of coaching staff openings.

Spring Football Previews: Defensive Backfield (From the Rumble Seat)

Key Players: First: the injuries. Jabari Hunt-Days is out for spring practices, as well as fellow DBs Brandon Watts, Fred Holton, and Isaiah Johnson. I don’t think they’ll lose their starting jobs in the fall though, so that settles that. In the meantime enjoy watching their respective backups on the depth chart above to make their case. Jeremiah Attaochu should be an interesting guy to watch…

Venables’ Keys to Success for Clemson D (ESPN’s ACC Blog)

For Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables, the formula for producing a national championship-caliber defense isn’t all that perplexing. The two things his group needs to do, he said, is consistently put pressure on quarterbacks and develop some consistent playmakers at the corner position. “That’s a position that is a big concern for us,” Venables said…

Grobe Taps Jackson to Coach WFU Secondary (Winston-Salem Journal)

When Coach Jim Grobe went looking for a new assistant to coach the Wake Forest secondary, he didn’t have to leave his office. Grobe said Tuesday that Derrick Jackson has been moved from coaching outside linebackers to the secondary to replace Tim Duffie, who left Wake Forest earlier this month to coach the secondary at Oklahoma State…

Chad Morris Still Pushing Tempo, Borrowing Ideas, Tweaking Tigers’ Attack (Orange and White)

There promises to be something new under the sun for the Clemson offense again this year, though Chad Morris isn’t telling what it might be. Just like last spring and summer, when Clemson’s offensive coaches visited with coaching staffs from Nevada and Oklahoma State, Morris has scheduled more visits for this off-season. He said he’s open to gleaning innovations from the high school, college and professional level…
