Greatest ACC Football Season Ever (WRALSports)

Cart. Horse. Now that we have the proverbial saying out of the way, let’s get down to talking about the best football season in the history of the Atlantic Coast Conference – at least so far. Yes, Florida State has won a pair of national championships with the ACC logo on the back of their helmet but largely, the Seminoles were flying solo in those seasons…

Looking for a Milestone Win (Duke Basketball Report (Duke Basketball Report)

No one suspected that Clemson’s visit to Duke on Sept. 30, 1989, was going to be a pivotal game in Blue Devil football history. Duke was 1-3 after taking a 49-28 whipping at Virginia and was given almost no chance against unbeaten and No. 7 ranked Clemson – a program that had pretty much dominated the ACC (and Duke) in the 1980s…

Boston College Football Schedule: Which Program Completes the 2014 Schedule? (BC Interruption)

Back in August, we learned that the Connecticut Huskies would replace Boston College as Army’s opponent for its 2014 home game at Yankee Stadium. Presumably, BC asked out of this game in an effort to get back to playing seven home games a season. The cancellation of the Yankee Stadium game leaves an opening on the Eagles’ 2014 schedule…

Virginia Tech Bracing for Potent Duke Offense (Winston-Salem Journal)

Torrian Gray, the defensive-backs coach at Virginia Tech, has a nickname for Duke’s offense. “Cutcliffe’s attack,” Gray said, referring to Coach David Cutcliffe and the Blue Devils, who the Hokies will face on Saturday. “I really like what he does. He’s going to attack us and we’re going to have to play the ball when it’s in the air. That’s what makes it fun”…

Pitt’s Football Coaches Need to Improve (Cardiac Hill)

Coaching has been a hot topic this season – heck, it always is. But while I often give the coaches a lot of rope, six games into the football season, there’s been plenty of room for improvement as I see it. Looking at specific units, there has been substandard performances throughout the entire team. The defense melted down against Duke, was soft against Florida State, and had a weak performance this week against Old Dominion…

Canes Trying to Address Turnover Woes Ahead of Wake Forest (Sun Sentinel)

At first glance, the numbers don’t seem to make much sense. Through their last three games, the Miami Hurricanes have totaled 1,647 yards of offense. They’ve scored 121 points and they’ve picked up three wins, two against conference opponents that have traditionally given them headaches…

Bobby Bowden Kept Up With the Joneses (Tallahassee Democrat)

Willie Jones Jr. knows his place in Florida State football history. He won’t be inducted into the FSU Hall of Fame, like his father, Willie Sr., was in 1988. He didn’t have the privilege of being an early round NFL draft pick like his younger brother, Christian, is expected to be this April; or like Willie Sr. was when the Oakland Raiders grabbed him in the second round in 1979…
