ACC Benefits, Too, From Irish Presence (Fort Wayne Journal Gazette)

While the grumbling continues both inside (Mike Krzyzewski) and outside (Steve Spurrier) the Atlantic Coast Conference over Notre Dame’s unique status as a half-member, let’s be perfectly clear about one thing: The ACC is getting something out of this too. The agreement that allowed Notre Dame the benefits of ACC membership while retaining football independence was the only way Notre Dame would join a conference at this point…

Debating the Pros and Cons of the Louisville/Kentucky Rivalry Game Move (Card Chronicle)

In news that seemingly came out of nowhere (seriously, how crazy is it in this day and age that there were zero rumblings about this?), the Louisville/Kentucky football series will be moving to the last game of the regular season beginning in 2014. Now let me preface all this by saying that in my ideal world, the game would still be played as the season-opener each and every year…

Syracuse Benefits From Military Training (ESPN’s ACC Blog)

There seems to be a new form of training coaches and players have embraced throughout college athletics: Military training. Michigan and Northwestern have had their players go through Navy SEALs training. UCLA went to San Diego earlier this month for a two-day stay with Navy SEALs. Oregon and Nebraska have participated in The Program, a military-style leadership and team-building course founded by a former special operations officer…

Which Newcomers Could Make an Impact This Year? (Testudo Times)

Stefon Diggs, C.J. Brown, Dexter McDougle – these are all familiar faces to Terrapin fans. While the more casual fans may not know guys like Quinton Jefferson and Nigel King, they have seen playing time with the Terps before so are at least somewhat of a known quantity. There is, however, a large group of newcomers ready to burst into the program and onto the field…

How to Judge the 2013 Football Season (Streaking the Lawn)

Different schools have different standards when it comes to college football. A 7-5 season for Florida State would be very different than a 7-5 season for, say, Florida International. That’s pretty obvious. Virginia’s standards are tough to hone in on, however. There is no doubt that this is a proud football school with plenty of tradition…

2013 Season Preview: Linebackers and Secondary (Tar Heel Blog)

Here’s a fun way to cause yourself a little agony on a slow day. Pull up the box scores for last year’s Carolina football games. Take a gander at the Tar Heels’ opposing receivers. And then look at their longest gains on the day. N.C. State’s Tobias Palmer had an 83-yard touchdown reception. His teammate Bryan Underwood scored from 55 yards out…

After a Competitive Camp, Surprise Clemson Tailback Trio Emerges (Orange and White)

Somebody has to step in to replace Andre Ellington’s production. The Tigers tailback went out on top with a second-straight 1,000-yard year and eight touchdowns last season, punching his ticket to the NFL’s Arizona Cardinals. Clemson offensive coordinator Chad Morris is pretty sure he has the next man up, but the entire running back race has been hard to handicap throughout camp…
