Dabo Swinney to Jadeveon Clowney: “I Don’t Think Tajh Boyd is Scared of Anybody” (Orange and White)

Jadeveon Clowney can flat out play. He talks a pretty good game, as well. Speaking Tuesday at the SEC’s Media Day, South Carolina’s All-America defensive end and possible Heisman Trophy candidate took a swipe at some of his most celebrated rivals, including Clemson’s Tajh Boyd and Georgia’s Aaron Murray. “I can tell Tajh Boyd is scared back there,” Clowney said…

Fisher Knows Spotlight Will Be on Winston (ESPN’s ACC Blog)

No matter what level of football you watch, the quarterback faces more scrutiny than anybody else on the team. That comes with the position. But as we have seen in recent years, recent months and even recent days, that scrutiny has grown exponentially thanks to an instant gratification culture that has taken hold.

Because we haven’t rattled off consecutive quality seasons in over a decade, everyone basically hits the reset button on us each preseason. That’s why the Orlando Sentinel can say SU will be the 96th best team in college football this season with a straight face and no one (besides us) will really notice (They put us at 92nd the year before)…

Va. Tech’s Exum Focused on Recovery From Knee Injury (Richmond Times-Dispatch)

Antone Exum still has his sights set on playing football against Alabama. But Exum, a Virginia Tech senior cornerback, said last week it’s impossible to predict at this point if he’ll be fully recovered from offseason knee surgery in time to take the field against the two-time defending national champion on Aug. 31 in Atlanta. “Of course my goal is to try to be back for the first game and that’s what I’m focusing on and aiming toward”…

SEC Media Days: Steve Spurrier on Stipends, Notre Dame, more (

2. Notre Dame should join the ACC as a full member. Unlike the stipends, this topic was unexpected. Spurrier questioned why Notre Dame was allowed to be treated as a conference unto itself, with athletic director Jack Swarbrick getting to sit in on all the College Football Playoff meetings with the conference commissioners.
