Sizing Up the ACC: Boyd Leads Mix of Youth, Experience at QB (Orange and White)

Tajh Boyd, after back-to-back seasons first-team All-ACC, is class of the conference at quarterback. Is anybody else close? There are a couple candidates. The ACC returns five QBs with over 6,000 career passing yards – a first – and also representative of a more pass-happy conference of late. Nine of the 12, and both incoming teams (Syracuse and Pittsburgh), passed for over 3,000 yards last season…

UNC Football: Larry Fedora Ready for Heels to Make Another Leap Forward (Charlotte Observer)

North Carolina coach Larry Fedora saw his first team set school records for scoring and total offense, win eight games and do enough to win a division title they can’t officially claim due to NCAA sanctions.

Unique Trip Provides Seminoles Players Chance to Bond, Be Seen By Recruiters (Orlando Sentinel)

Constant banter and laughter fills the weight room at Seminole. The group of rising junior and senior football players make fun of each other after their early-morning workout. Whether it is linebacker Stephen Ruiz being teased about his “scrawny legs” or linebacker Demetrius Artis being called “Meat” because of his brute strength and sturdy build, the kidding demonstrates the level of comfort the players have with each other…

Keys to Victory: The Florida State Seminoles (BC Interruption)

Last season Boston College got absolutely waxed against Florida State 51-7 in Tallahassee. Easily this was one of the hardest games to watch, but given the shape of the team in 2012 it wasn’t all that suprising. If you were to put together a list of things BC did wrong you would have a “War and Peace” sized novel on your hand…

Virginia Tech running back Michael Holmes was given the good/bad news when a judge founding him guilty of assault and battery, a misdemeanor, lowering his previous charge of malicious wounding, a felony. @AndyBitterVT: #Hokies RB Michael Holmes has malicious wounding charge reduced to assault and battery, a misdemeanor.
