Best-Case/Worst-Case: Game by Game in the ACC Atlantic (Football Study Hall)

1. Florida State: Best-Case. Outsiders have been conditioned over the last decade to regard the Seminoles as perennially overrated choke artists – the only rational response to their track record in that span – and it will probably take them as long to shed that reputation as it did to earn it.

David Watford Named Virginia Starting Quarterback (Streaking the Lawn)

Mike London has consistently said that UVa would name a starting quarterback early in fall camp, and move forward.

Watford beat out redshirt freshman Greyson Lambert for the job, after both Michael Rocco and Phillip Sims left the program this off-season…

For the first time, the game is moving fast enough that Thomas’ five-star body struggles to keep pace. “He’s still young and trying to get the college feel and know that he can’t just beat people with speed,” senior Telvin Smith said. “But he’s going to be a great linebacker”…

Watkins Determined to Eliminate “Drop-Off” Games (Orange and White)

The “drop-off” – it’s what junior Clemson receiver Sammy Watkins knows he must avoid for the Tigers to reach all their ’13 goals. Taking out LSU (no targets due to injury), Watkins actually led the team in receptions per game (6.3) last season and his receiving yards per was eighth-best in the ACC (70.8).
