ACC Wraps Meetings With Eye on Future (ESPN’s ACC Blog)

The ACC spring meetings wrapped up quietly Thursday morning and with little fanfare. Commissioner John Swofford sure was happy about that.

2013: The Year of the Linebacker at Georgia Tech (From the Rumble Seat)

Going into last season, we knew that the secondary would be the major strength of Tech’s defense, and possibly the whole team. Having only lost one key member (Rod Sweeting) and returning the other 3 of their 4 starters (Thomas, Young, Johnson), it would follow that they’d be the best again this year, right? Wrong. Going into this fall, there’s a new sheriff in town for our defense — the linebackers…

Clifton Richardson to Leave Virginia Football Program (Washington Post)

One of the deepest positions on Virginia’s football roster suffered some attrition Thursday. Coach Mike London announced junior running back Clifton Richardson has been granted a release from his scholarship and will leave the program.
