Hashtagging Your Way to Recruiting Success (

ACC Football Kickoff descends on the Grandover Resort in Greensboro this weekend, signaling the impending return of college football. Go ahead, do a little dance for joy. I did. The media event will likely cover the usual topics, from whether or not Florida State is “back” to the crucial opening non-conference games that shape perception of the ACC. There will be new faces along with the familiar ones to interview…

Countdown to Study Hall: Wake Forest Wins 2018 College Football Playoff (Football Study Hall)

The set closer in Study Hall is a lengthy jam session on underdog tactics, figuring out ways to both beat Goliath and become Goliath. I spoke to coaches like ULM’s Todd Berry, Stanford’s David Shaw, Wake Forest’s Jim Grobe, and Ohio’s Frank Solich, among others, about this, and I was really happy with the result. Today’s discussion topic, then, is this…

Does it Matter That Syracuse is Missing Out on New York’s Top Football Prospects? (

Being New York’s College Team is great for sponsors and making money. It doesn’t work out so well for football. Much has been made of Syracuse’s efforts to dominate the New York recruiting market, an effort stressed by former head coach Doug Marrone because of his area ties. It has seemed urgent because of the head-to-head competition for players with Rutgers, one of SU’s few peer football schools in the Northeast…

Clemson is the heavy favorite to win the ACC Atlantic title, but Florida State isn’t too far behind in the division pecking order. The Seminoles return 10 starters, including one of the best offensive lines in the ACC, and a plethora of talented skill players at running back and receiver. The defense returns only four starters, but there’s no shortage of talented options stepping into the lineup…

Position Profile: Defensive Tackle (State of the U)

The Defense (as a whole) last season was a disappointment; giving up almost 500 yards a game, 200 of which were on the ground (almost 5 yards a rush); earning a ranking close to last in the FBS . The defensive tackle position was not solely to blame for the down year – but are not exempt from the finger pointing either. As an important cog in the defensive machine, the big men in the middle set the tone…

Point-Counterpoint: Why Maryland Should Plan an Annual Game at M&T Bank Stadium or FedEx Field (Testudo Times)

I’ve never been a proponent of playing college football in professional stadiums, no matter how state-of-the-art or expensive the venues are. It isn’t that I’m an old-fashioned traditionalist or prejudiced against everything about the pro game; my opposition to collegiate teams making their homes in NFL stadiums is that most of them aren’t generally able to fill them…

Blue Devils Continue to Take “Ownership” (Durham Herald-Sun)

Since becoming Duke’s football coach five years ago, David Cutcliffe’s goal was to leave the program better than he found it. In leading the Blue Devils to their first bowl game since 1994 this past season, he’s gone a long way toward accomplishing that goal. Along the way, though, Cutcliffe is making sure his players improve the Duke campus off the field, as well…
