Where Has the Offense Gone? (Tar Heel Blog)

The easy and probably too simplistic answer to that question is in Cincinnati doing stuff like this (image). The absence of Giovani Bernard is a factor and some drop off from last season was expected. However what has happened through three games so far is not just a minor dip in offensive production but an alarming one…

ACC Rolling Up the Yards, Points, Wins This Season (Associated Press)

Pittsburgh allowed an average of 56 points per game last season. So last week’s 58-55 victory over Duke wouldn’t stand out much to a fan scanning the scores. Except that team with the stingy defense was Pitt basketball. The victory over the Blue Devils on Saturday was the Panthers’ football team — one, but hardly the only, example of the record-setting Atlantic Coast Conference offenses that are scoring an average of 33.53 points per game…

Georgia Tech Ready for Spotlight With Virginia Tech Game (Macon Telegraph)

Georgia Tech has gone to great lengths to make sure Thursday’s game is a spectacle for its fans. As part of the ongoing celebration of Grant Field’s 100th anniversary, the football team will wear throwback uniforms. More than 30 All-Americans will be honored at halftime. And the fans are being encouraged to participate in a “White Out”…

Coastal Division Edge at Stake for Hokies, Jackets (Winston-Salem Journal)

Georgia Tech can add to its early success in ACC play Thursday night with a victory against Virginia Tech in the rivalry that often decides the Coastal Division. Most years, the winner of this game wins the division, and Virginia Tech (3-1, 0-0 ACC) or Georgia Tech (3-0, 2-0) has played in every ACC championship game. But last season was an exception…

FSU’s Young Defenders Making Noise (ESPN’s ACC Blog)

Throughout the 68-yard dash, Telvin Smith never looked back. Seconds earlier, he’d stepped in front of a pass from Bethune-Cookman quarterback Quentin Williams, and a path cleared ahead of him as he charged to the end zone. It was only after Smith crossed the goal line that he realized he wasn’t alone. Two steps behind him was fellow linebacker Matthew Thomas, who’d kept pace with Smith step for step throughout the return…

“Let’s Make a Deal” Works Out Well for Vic Beasley, Not So Much for Opposing QBs (Orange and White)

A little over a year ago, Dabo Swinney approached Vic Beasley and said ‘let’s make a deal.’ Up until then, the former Adairsville, Ga. high school star’s college career had been a muddle, and there was no real sign that it was going anywhere. Both Swinney and Beasley were frustrated. “What I kept seeing in Vic was that we didn’t have a better athlete on the team, with his great length and quickness and the ability to change direction suddenly”…

Will Watford Move His Feet to Move the Football? (Daily Progress)

Scattershooting around the ACC, while pondering, to run or not to run? That is Virginia quarterback David Watford’s biggest question… Ever since spring drills, we’ve heard how fast afoot Watford is when he breaks into the open, that he’s a blur. But so far, the Cavaliers’ potentially best weapon has been more of a secret weapon. Not by design…

    Kudos!

  9. Blink iis the Professor’s (from Spyro 2 and 3) nephew.
    The hype has been increasing steadily, especially with the numerous gameplay videos featured on IGN.
    and when I based Wildfire’s ddagon mythology on an old Japanese folk tale, Lynn’s heritage came
    together.

  10. The comic value offered in this game is priceless, such as Vernon Dursley going batty over an abundance of Hogwart letters and Goblins partying in a vault at Gringotts.
    This can be done by simlly opening Cydia and tapping
    Manage >Sources >Edit >Add and entering >Add Source ass your repository.
    Take a Siims gardening class at the science building and reasd gardening books to increase your gardening skill.
