Boston College Football: Adventures in the Transitive Property (BC Interruption)

I’m guilty of this from time to time, but can we please pump the brakes a bit with the whole college football transitive property analysis. You know the transitive property, right? If team A > team B, and team B > team C, therefore, it logically follows that team A > team C. It’s this type of superficial analysis that fans latch onto when the game on the field leaves them unfulfilled, especially following a loss and almost certainly following a loss AND a bye week…

Clemson Tackles Misperceptions (ESPN’s ACC Blog)

Clemson has had to fight a two-fisted assault on its reputation early on this season, thanks to common misperceptions its critics have hung on to like a favorite pair of worn shoes.

Morris Convinced Tajh Boyd is Back on Track (Orange and White)

Syracuse Left Tackle Sean Hickey’s “Devotion to the Process” Has Led to National Attention (

Sean Hickey sends the same text message to Will Hicks every Saturday morning at 9 a.m. during the offseason and plans his diet meticulously – chicken breast and brown rice for six consecutive days each week. On Sundays, when the team is supposedly off, Hickey heads to the gym and goes through a bench press routine. He’s obsessed with hitting the numbers that Hicks, SU’s strength coach, lays out for him each session…

FSU Freshman Casher Makes Most of Opportunity (Tallahassee Democrat)

It was a sight that excited Florida State head football coach Jimbo Fisher. Not only was redshirt freshman Chris Casher getting reps in Saturday’s win over Bethune-Cookman, he was making plays. Lots of them. The Alabama native finished with a career-high 10 tackles (his previous high was one) and two tackles for loss in the Seminoles’ 54-6 win…

Ranking Stuff: Virginia Tech’s Non-Conference Games (Gobbler Country)

Welcome to “Ranking Stuff,” where I’m going to throw together a bunch of lists because lists are awesome. You never know what you’ll find, so without further ado it’s time to… RANK STUFF. Top Five Players During The Non-Conference Schedule: 1. J.R.
