Making the Case for Tajh Boyd (ESPN’s ACC Blog)

Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota is good, but when it comes to passing yards, he’s nowhere near Clemson’s Tajh Boyd. Braxton Miller? Puh-lease. Six picks and 15 touchdowns to Boyd’s 13 interceptions and 36 touchdowns. (Yeah, yeah, Boyd can run, too). OK, OK, AJ McCarron led the nation in passing efficiency last year, but ask him how the game against A&M went…

The ACC’s Top Heisman Contenders in 2013 (Athlon Sports)

The ACC has won two Heisman Trophies. Ever. Florida State has provided both awards to the league when quarterbacks Chris Weinke won the award in 2000 and Charlie Ward took home the stiff-armed trophy in 1993. Both quarterbacks also have National Championship rings on their fingers as well…

Report: ACC, Pinstripe Bowl Agree to New 6-Year Deal (Troy Nunes Is An Absolute Magician)

The Syracuse Orange’s Pinstripe Bowl invitation maybe coming sooner than expected. According to ESPN’s Brett McMurphy, the Orange’s soon-to-be new home, the Atlantic Coast Conference, has agreed to a six-year deal with the Pinstripe Bowl. The ACC replaces the old Big East Conference (is that what we’re calling it now?) as an opponent to a Big Ten foe…

Some Thoughts on Maryland and the ACC Post-Split (Duke Basketball Report)

This article talks about Maryland’s hopes with the Big Ten after the Terps leave the ACC.  And it got us to thinking on several levels. First about the move itself and football. Several things will not change anytime soon. First, Maryland’s stadium is runtish compared to the huge arenas in the Big Ten. Maryland can conceivably sell more tickets to see Ohio State than say Wake, but there’s a problem with this logic…

Ohhhh, What a Rush(el)! Shell to Return to Pitt? (Cardiac Hill)

First things first – apologies to you non-wrestling fans for the Legion of Doom reference. Seriously, my bad. With that out of the way … So yeah, this happened. Don’t look to me for answers – I’m just as confused as all of you. Still, I try to answer your hypothetical questions here. Let the games begin: Wait – Rushel Shell isn’t going to UCLA after all? Like, that Rushel Shell? Yeah, I know. Pretty crazy, right?…

Sizing Up the ACC: Tigers Have Company in Unproven Backfield (Orange and White)

Unproven is the best description of the ACC’s tailbacks this season. The conference returns a lone 1,000-yard rusher – and that’s from incoming Syracuse (Jerome Smith, 1,171 yards). The ACC overall is looking for answers in the running game. Georgia Tech is the one given, having led the NCAA in rushing over the last five years (20,380 yards/203 scores), but the conference only had one more top-25 run offense (FSU)…

Predicting the 2013 College Football Season: ACC Standings and Division Champs (BC Interruption)

As part of SBNation’s dedication to covering college football all summer long, the writers of the various college blogs were given the opportunity to predict the final conference standings. Brian gave me the opportunity to do the predictions, so I went ahead, thought it over and came up with the below. ACC Atlantic: 1. Florida State, 2. Clemson, 3. Boston College, 4. NC State, 5. Maryland, 6. Syracuse, 7. Wake Forest…
