After Strong Starts, Earlier Clemson-UGa Rematch Not Out of Question (Orange and White)

With both Clemson and Georgia spending today away from the gridiron, I started thinking about the rematch. We know there’ll be one on Aug. 30, 2014, in Athens. But what if there was a rematch before then? What if the Tigers and Bulldogs meet again in Pasadena on Jan. 6, 2014?…

Defense Seizes the Day (Gobbler Country)

It was ugly. The final score, a 15-10 Hokies triumph that saw the running game getting bogged down, the offensive line losing the battle of the trench, and Cody Journell having an uncharacteristic bad day kicking the field goal tries, reflected it. In the end, none of it mattered, because Bud Foster’s lunchpail defense was there to make sure the Hokies secured the win…

Bloody Tuesday, a demanding period of football preparation at Duke University, commences with a devotional led by the team’s chaplain at 7:05 a.m. each week. A meeting follows at 7:10 and players later march down the paved path onto the practice field, a secluded swath of turf lined by black fences bordering Wallace Wade Stadium, the Saturday battleground, on West Campus…

Karlos Williams Boosts FSU Backfield (ESPN’s ACC Blog)

For more than a year, Jimbo Fisher knew he had a weapon waiting in storage. He’d prodded Karlos Williams to make the switch to tailback, but he didn’t insist. Selling a five-star recruit on a position change requires a soft touch. Through eight practices, Williams’ teammates knew he was something special, too…
