Ranking the ACC’s 2013 Football Uniforms (Athlon Sports)

14. Boston College: The alternates shown here are pretty slick but is the best this team will ever look. The maroon tops and gold pants are a bit antiquated. And the helmets literally have nothing on them. The problem is Boston College isn’t a great school to try new, edgy looks, so the Eagles may be stuck with what they have; 13. Wake Forest: The entire get-up is plain. The helmet is plain. The logo is, you guessed it, extremely plain…

New Coach Reset: Syracuse’s Scott Shafer (

The Hire: Coaching experience: Scott Shafer, 46, was a star quarterback at Riverside High School in Painesville, Ohio — where his father spent 28 years as head football coach — and Ohio University before suffering a season-ending knee injury and finishing his career at Baldwin-Wallace College. His coaching career began shortly after his playing career ended, with stops at Indiana and Rhode Island…

2013 Forecast: Sammy Watkins Poised for Record-Breaking Junior Campaign (Orange and White)

Most FBS-level players, even the stars, would take a “disappointing” season like Sammy Watkins had last year. The numbers were down across the board in 2012 – after setting records in receiving yards (1,219), yards per game (93.8) and touchdowns (12) among more his freshman year. Starting slow due to suspension and dealing with injuries, Watkins still averaged a team-high catch every 7.1 snaps, with 708 yards total…

Florida State Football Recruiting: Camp Recap, Notes, Projections (SB Nation)

Florida State’s Jimbo Fisher camp concluded over the weekend. Overall, the camp was above average, but the level of talent participating was not up to the very lofty standards set by the Seminoles in recent years. But with a new staff, perhaps that should have been expected. The new coaches are working to establish new relationships. That’s not to say that FSU didn’t have elite talent visit during the camp…

Quarterback Commitment Gives Clues to Tech Offense (Richmond Times-Dispatch)

New Virginia Tech offensive coordinator Scot Loeffler landed his first verbal commitment from a quarterback recruit on Sunday. Camp Hill, Pa., prospect Andrew Ford chose the Hokies after they were spurned by David Cornwell (Alabama), Jacob Park (Georgia) and Mason Rudolph (Oklahoma State). But the list of targets, coupled with Ford’s commitment, has offered a glimpse into what Loeffler is looking for in a quarterback…

Miami Hurricanes Preseason Position Preview: The Safeties (State of the U)

I would say it’s been since Kenny Phillips that our last TRUE game changing safety was on the field. Our last groups of safeties lacked that instinct that Phillips possessed. That nose for the ball that helped cause turnovers and highlights throughout the field. I believe we now have those players on this roster and will be a big reason for getting this defense turned around…

No TE at Georgia Tech? No Problem For Recruit (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

When Pennsylvania tight end Trey Klock committed to Georgia Tech on Sunday, some people were scratching their heads because the Yellow Jackets don’t use a tight end on a regular basis in the triple-option offense. “I had a lot of people contact me the last few days, and a lot of fans from other schools complaining about how I’m not going to be used at tight end at Georgia Tech,” Klock said…
