Is the ACC For Real in Football? (Backing the Pack)

Over the years the Atlantic Coast Conference has blown up its original Tobacco Road-dominated footprint, expanding in an effort to gain gridiron respectability (and the almighty dollar). Despite the league’s pursuit of football relevance, it has remained a basketball conference. Florida State is the last ACC team to claim a football national championship, and that came way back in 1999…

Scoring Points is All the Rage, Except at U.Va, VT (Virginian-Pilot)

As Virginia loses style points while scoring so few real ones, it’s becoming more obvious that the offensive revolution in college football has bypassed Charlottesville. Is it a shortage of talent or a crisis of coaching imagination that’s to blame for U.Va.’s 14-3 loss at Pittsburgh? Probably a little of both. On Saturday, Mississippi was shut out at Alabama – but the Crimson Tide is the No. 1team in the nation…

Fedora: Tar Heels Have to “Move On” and Focus on Virginia Tech (Winston-Salem Journal)

North Carolina never expected to be in this position. Once considered a dark horse to win the ACC’s Coastal Division title, UNC now has the worst overall record in the league (1-3) and is in danger of dropping to 1-5 overall with resurgent Virginia Tech and No. 14 Miami lined up as the next two games on its schedule…

Virginia’s Offense: Where Does it Go From Here? (Streaking the Lawn)

Wow…that was bad. Despite a fantastic effort by a revamped Virginia defense, the Cavaliers fell on the road at Pitt this weekend 14-3. The Virginia offense looked like a bad fraternity flag football team. Quarterback David Watford spent much of the afternoon running for his life as the right side of the offensive line seemingly said “hey, Pitt defenders…go get him!”…

Conference Getting Reputation for Tough Defense (Palm Beach Post)

Miami defensive coordinator Mark D’Onofrio doesn’t get much time to casually watch football. “I just try to take care of our business, but if we have an early game, I get a chance to watch some games,” he said. “I’m a fan like anybody else.” Fans of suffocating defense — and D’Onofrio is one, unless his opponent is playing it — can find it in the ACC…

Clemson Faces Unknowns at Syracuse (ESPN’s ACC Blog)

All eyes are squarely focused on Oct. 19, when Florida State travels to Clemson in what everybody anticipates will be another battle between unbeaten top 10 teams with national championship aspirations. But coaches always warn it is dangerous to look ahead. In this case, that mantra fits. The clichéd trap week is here, for both programs…

Is Pitt’s Offensive Line Tired? (Cardiac Hill)

A big and powerful offensive line is supposed to wear down opponents as the game moves into the latter stages. The Panthers’ line is big and it is powerful, but looking at the first four games, one has to wonder where that last part is hiding. A disturbing trend is beginning to take form and you have to ask yourself if the line is getting tired in the 2nd half?..
