Sizing Up the ACC: Deep Talented Linebacker Corps Can Make Some Noise (Orange and White)

After a sordid start to 2012, Clemson’s defense needed a shot in the arm – and that came in the form of Spencer Shuey. His signature play for the opportunity came versus Georgia Tech midseason, in the middle of a back-and-forth game. With the Yellow Jackets pinned back to their goalline, Tech quarterback Tevin Washington made a second-down pitch to the elusive A-back Orwin Smith in the endzone…

Conference Realignment Hypothetical: What If Syracuse, Not Virginia Tech, Joined the ACC in 2003? (BC Interruption)

Syracuse University is set to join the Atlantic Coast Conference next week, which I guess means I’ll have to write something (nice?) about the Orange in this space over the next few days.
