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

1. Virginia Tech: Best-Case. Pretty much from the moment the ACC cleaved into two divisions back in 2005, the first rule in the Coastal has never changed: When in doubt, bet Virginia Tech. In the first seven years of the format, the Hokies won their half of the conference five times, and ultimately topped all other ACC teams in the final polls all seven years…

ACC’s Impact Freshman to Watch in 2013 (Athlon Sports)

The ACC gets knocked for its poor BCS bowl record (3-13) and for not being able to compete with the SEC on a regular basis. While this is true, John Swofford has this league heading in the right direction with team stability and plenty of room for growth. One thing the ACC has done extremely well of late, however, is produce elite impact freshmen…

ACC Preview: Is Clemson the Team to Beat? (USA Today)

The ACC has a number of teams ready to make a splash on the national scene and a number of opportunities to increase its stature in non-conference games. Clemson faces Georgia and South Carolina; Florida State plays its annual game with Florida; Virginia Tech meets Alabama, and Virginia plays Oregon, among others. Pittsburgh and Syracuse join from the Big East, with Pitt playing in the Coastal Division and Syracuse in the Atlantic…

2013 Clemson Football’s 10 Things to Know: Tajh, Sammy and A-Grade Roster Management (SB Nation)

1. The Annual Question: “Clemsoning” shouldn’t really be a thing. The expectations for Dabo Swinney’s Tigers shouldn’t be adjusted because, for instance, Tommy Bowden’s 2008 squad began the season (over)ranked ninth in the country and finished 7-6, or because 2011 Clemson reached No. 6 in the country before losing back-to-back games to unranked opponents on the road…

2013 Virginia Tech Football’s 10 Things to Know: Hokies Can Be Great Again… in 2014 (SB Nation)

1. Virginia Tech is Going to be Pretty Good in 2014: In 2008, Virginia Tech sank to 32nd in the F/+ rankings after ranking 11th and eighth the two previous years. The Hokies still went 10-4 and still won a weak ACC despite losses to Boston College, Florida State, and Miami (and, out of conference, East Carolina); but the product itself was regressing…

Maryland Athletics Ran a 21 Million Dollar Deficit Last Year (Tar Heel Blog)

Last fall I briefly touched on Maryland’s defection to the Big Ten and the ways it could go horribly wrong: Maryland’s departure from the ACC isn’t based on any disagreement in policy or imagined slight, like that which drove South Carolina out in 1970. No, the Terps’ athletic department needed money, plain and simple. Debbie Yow’s tenure left them in tremendous debt, to the tune of nine non-revenue sports being cancelled…

Cornerback Likely Making Early Impact at Terps Practice (The Diamondback)

Each time cornerback Will Likely got close to the ball during 11-on-11 drills in Tuesday’s practice, the Terrapins football team’s defense got a bit louder on the sideline. Audible shouts of “Yeah, Will!” became common as the 5-foot-7, 175-pound freshman made several tackles and intercepted two passes during the workout…
