Mission Possible: Keys to Beating FSU (State of the U)

The Florida State Seminoles have looked unworldly through 7 games this season. QB Jameis Winston is on a short list of Heisman frontrunners.  Kelvin Benjamin looks like a poor man’s Calvin Johnson.  Fellow WR Rashad Green plays with the speed and savvy of a young Donald Driver.  And Nick O’Leary has developed into a very reliable red zone target…

The Evolution of the Florida State Offensive Line (Tomahawk Nation)

The Florida State offense is incredibly electric this year. Many factors are contributing this, the improved play from the wide receivers, and obviously the play of redshirt freshman phenomenon Jameis Winston, but the offensive line should not be overlooked for their stellar play so far this season. The pass blocking is what has been vastly improved this year…

Urgent Tar Heels Begin the Process of Digging Themselves Out of Their Hole (Wilmington Star-News)

There were no fiery speeches. No players only team meetings. No challenges to anybody’s manhood. All it took was a quick glance at the ACC standings and a little basic math for the members of the North Carolina football team to understand just how deep a hole they’d dug for themselves after Thursday’s heartbreaking loss to Miami…

Watford’s Career Game Not Enough (Streaking the Lawn)

With a QB controversy brewing, David Watford and Steve Fairchild conspired to end the discussion by ensuring that Watford would have a career day throwing the ball. Watford set UVA records in both pass attempts and completions, throwing 61 passes, and completing 43 of them, for 376 yards. It was the 4th highest passing game in Virginia history…

If at the beginning of the season I were to tell you that the Duke Blue Devils would become the fifth ACC program to become bowl eligible, you’d still be laughing at me a good two months later. While I had the Blue Devils in the ACC’s bowl lineup last week, I don’t think there were many (any?) that predicted Duke would be bowl eligible through the first 9 weeks of the season…

Tech Has to Bounce Back Quickly (Richmond Times Dispatch)

Antone Exum knows a loss like Saturday’s, to lightly regarded Duke, in which Virginia Tech’s offense squandered another strong outing from the defense, could be the kind of tipping point that sends a football season south. But Exum, the senior cornerback and former Deep Run High School star, doesn’t expect that to happen to Virginia Tech in its quest for Atlantic Coast Conference title…

Soaking in the Victory’s Glow (Durham Herald-Sun)

David Cutcliffe is just fine with his team taking a little time to savor something special. Cutcliffe’s Blue Devils posted an historic win on Saturday, winning at then No. 16 Virginia Tech 13-10 to post the program’s first win over a ranked team since 1994 and the first road win over a ranked team since 1971…
