Ranking the ACC’s College Football Stadiums (Athlon Sports)

Fall Saturdays are special. Small towns, huge crowds, tailgating, bands, cheerleaders and student sections are just a few of the reasons college football is the best sport on the planet. When campuses jump to life across the nation each weekend in the fall, college stadiums become a staging ground for history. There are a variety of ways to evaluate the greatness of a stadium…

F/+ in the ACC: Will an Elite Program Please Stand Up? (Football Study Hall)

One last stop on this tour of F/+ ratings in each of the major conferences: the ACC. Last time, I took you through the Big 12.

Florida State senior wide receiver Greg Dent was arrested Sunday on a charge of sexual assault under Florida Statute 794.011 (5). The statute reads: A person who commits sexual battery upon a person 12 years of age or older, without that person’s consent, and in the process thereof does not use physical force and violence likely to cause serious personal injury commits a felony of the second degree…

Former UNC African American Studies Chairman Had Close Ties to Athletic Counselors (News & Observer)

Julius Nyang’oro, the former UNC African studies chairman at the heart of an academic fraud scandal, had a cozy relationship with the program that tutored athletes, according to newly released emails.
