The ‘Noles of 90s are Back (WRALSportsFan)

I saw former North Carolina star Bucky Brooks at a football game last year, and I took the chance to remind him of what I consider to be his signature moment as a Tar Heel – making a diving catch in the end zone at Kenan Stadium to give his team the lead against Florida State. OK, it was just a 7-0 lead and FSU went on to win that game easily, 33-7…

After Miami Decision, NCAA’s Need for Change is Clearer Than Ever (SB Nation)

This is it for the NCAA. Well, for this NCAA. In what’s likely its last major enforcement decision before a looming major overhaul — one that might well include a completely new division of schools with its own new rules — the NCAA has finally announced its decision on Miami football, almost four years after the university first alerted the NCAA…

What the Win Over Clemson Means for Florida State and the Tigers (Tomahawk Nation)

Clemson is so, so loud. Last week offensive tackle Tarlos Thomas, of the 1999 team, told us Clemson was the loudest place he played (including the Swamp and the old Orange Bowl). It’s hard to disagree. Many of the photographers on the field actually wore ear plugs, something I would have also wanted had I stayed down on the field for the game. I didn’t because I needed to be in the press box, but damn was it loud…

Miami Already Paid the Price, Making Its Recovery Easier (USA Today)

Give or take a few scholarships, it’s all over now for the University of Miami. Nevin Shapiro’s dirty money no longer hovers over Coral Gables like a cloud, threatening to drag the Hurricanes’ football program into the abyss after years of funding assistant coaches and college athletes in blatant violation of NCAA rules. Miami, it turns out, will be just fine…

The Completely True and Factually Accurate History of Northern Football (Troy Nunes Is An Absolute Magician)

Immediately following Syracuse’s 24-10 victory over North Carolina State, Head Coach Scott Shafer proudly stated that he was happy “to take our Northern football down to The South”. Syracuse’s hard-fought, grinding victory in Raleigh featured an aggressive defense, north/south running, and a general inability to throw the downfield pass…

Dabo Channeling Danny? In Times of Trouble, “Go Back to Basics” (Orange and White)

Borrowing a page from the playbook of Danny Ford, Clemson coach Dabo Swinney is sending his Tigers back to the basics in the aftermath of their big-game flop against Florida State. While the ‘basics’ employed by Swinney and offensive coordinator Chad Morris might differ somewhat from those of Clemson’s legendary coach, the concept of simplification is the same…

ACC Move Create Increase in Ticket Sales, Attendance (Daily Orange)

Since moving to the Atlantic Coast Conference from the Big East, ticket sales for Syracuse University sports have increased, with basketball ticket sales already surpassing last year’s numbers. There are a number of factors contributing to these increases in sales, said Joe Giansante, the executive senior associate athletics director. “There are the high end teams, especially in football, that we didn’t have in the Big East as far as the rankings go”…
