ACC Agrees to Six Bowl Deals for 2014 Cycle (BC Interruption)

According to ESPN’s Brett McMurphy, the ACC has reached agreements with the top six bowl games for the new bowl cycle, much like the old bowl cycle, starting in 2014. The ACC’s champ will continue to play in the Orange Bowl when the game is not part of the College Football Playoff semifinals, and when the ACC champ isn’t in the College Football Playoff. Why are you laughing?

College Football Playoff Selection Committee to Include Current ADs (Sporting News)

After months of relative inactivity in the development of the College Football Playoff selection committee, the men who have reshaped the college football postseason have taken a critical first step. Current athletic directors will be used on the committee, an industry source told Sporting News Wednesday – a direct reversal from public statements made in May by CFP executive director Bill Hancock…

SOTU Position Preview: Linebackers (State of the U)

During the season last year many wondered “where are the linebackers?” Sometimes they would show up on fourth and short in crucial situations (a la GT) and then sometimes they just.. wouldn’t show up at all (ND). Let’s take a look at who’s returning this year and how they could possibly project for the upcoming season. The order of the breakdown is based on who I think will make the most impact next year for the team…

Comparing Logan Thomas’s 2012 to Tyrod Taylor’s 2008 (Gobbler Country)

Logan Thomas was mystifying in 2012. After beginning the 2011 season with average or below average results for a Hokie quarterback, Thomas finished the season with what is possibly the best statistical season for a Tech quarterback in the history of the school. Over a nine-game stretch to end the season, Thomas went 160-259 (62%) for 2,147 yards with 16 touchdowns and 6 interceptions (counting the Danny Coale catch)…

Coach K, Roy Williams Favor Having ACC Tournament in New York (ZagsBlog)

It may be only a matter of time before the ACC Tournament comes to Madison Square Garden — and you can count Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski and North Carolina’s Roy Williams among those who’d like to see it happen. “We have New York, we should use it,” Coach K told SNY.tv at the Peach Jam. “If we don’t use it, we’re foolish. We use [Madison Square Garden] at Duke, we come there every year”…

Deacons in Need of Receivers to Complement Campanaro (Blogger So Dear)

No player meant more to last year’s Demon Deacons than Michael Campanaro. The aerial attack revolved around the dynamic 5-11 wide receiver as a playmaker, a decoy, a running threat and even a trickeration quarterback—he has three career touchdown passes. Named to the Bilenikoff Watch List, Campanaro needs only 55 receptions to break Desmond Clark’s school record of 216. Hell, he even has his own song…

Syracuse Fullback Adonis Ameen-Moore Refocused After Enduring ‘Rocky’ 2012 Season (Syracuse.com)

Adonis Ameen-Moore bounces into an office inside the athletic communications wing of Manley Field House. A lighthearted smile is stretched across his face. It’s a 90-plus degree day in Syracuse, and a black T-shirt with sleeves cut off reveals Ameen-Moore’s tree limb-esque arms. At 5 feet 11 inches and 239 pounds Ameen-Moore is closer to corpulent than svelte, more Ron Dayne than Reggie Bush…
