Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski ‘Never Accepted’ Notre Dame in ACC (USA Today)

Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski has not kept his feelings secret on the subject of realignment. He’s expressed displeasure at Maryland, one of the Atlantic Coast Conference’s charter members, leaving the league. He’s lamented the loss of long-standing rivalries. And now, he’s publicly speaking out against one of his league’s newest members — Notre Dame. Krzyzewski was asked by the New York Post in a Q&A what he thought about the ACC’s relationship with Notre Dame…

ACC Must Protect Rivalries (Augusta Chronicle)

The Atlantic Coast Conference took another evolutionary step this week, hitting New York City to officially welcome Syracuse and Pitt to the family full time and Notre Dame in everything but football. Next summer, Louisville will slide fully into the defection vacancy left by Maryland. With the grants in media rights agreement locking down all parties, that should be it for awhile…

The ACC’s Best Traditions (Athlon Sports)

There are many reasons a sports fan can come to the realization that the college game is a better product than the professional version. Some of that has to do with charming, sleepy college towns and the scenic tailgating. The college game has bigger stadiums filled with more dedicated fans, historic bands and student sections. The offenses are more innovative and the rivalries are drenched in decades of bitterness…

Maryland Running Back Wes Brown Arrested for 2nd Degree Assault, Theft and Use of a Wiretap (Testudo Times)

Maryland sophomore running back Wes Brown was arrested Wednesday and charged with second-degree assault, theft under $1,000, and illegal use of wiretapping, according to the Maryland Judiciary Case Search and confirmed by the College Park Police Department. Brown has a preliminary hearing scheduled for July 31 at 08:45 a.m. in Upper Marlboro. Only the assault charge was used in assessing his bail, which totaled $7,500…

Q&A With Deacs Star Safety A.J. Marshall (Blogger So Dear)

Marshall is perceived as one of the most intelligent Deacons. He made the difficult transition from cornerback to safety seamlessly. Off the field, Marshall remains low-key, but inherently exudes confidence. His swagger makes him the funniest kid in the class (he even speaks español muy bien), while still being a contributor in discussions. Expect big things this year from A.J. Marshall, on and off the field…

Syracuse Football Recruiting is Going to be the Death of Me (Troy Nunes Is An Absolute Magician)

K.J. Williams scares me. Maybe it’s the whole Zach Allen Affair fresh in my mind, but based on everything I’ve been reading since the four-star WR committed to play football for the Syracuse Orange in 2014, I just keep feeling like Han Solo in the Death Star trash compactor. I’ve got a bad feeling about this. It might be this quote from his high school coach, basically an open dare to the Miami Hurricanes to start recruiting Williams…

Sizing Up the ACC: Tigers Look for More From Kick Returns, Coverage in ’13 (Orange and White)

Phil Steele probably isn’t the Clemson faithful’s favorite college football expert right now – no Tajh Boyd among his All-America QBs and projecting the Tigers to the…Russell Athletic Bowl. He does, however, have some interesting statistics – including a mashup of special teams stats to measure the unit as a whole. The last two years, Clemson averaged the 47th-best special teams group nationally…
