Behind the Curve Early, Can Dabo Swinney Play Recruiting Catch-up? (Orange and White)

Even putting the best face on where Clemson stands in recruiting two days into summer camp week, it seems safe to say that the Tigers are behind the curve – the very pattern of early, and secure, commitments that they helped establish during the last two recruiting cycles. Clemson currently has six commitments for its class of 2013, plus a transfer linebacker from Oklahoma who will sit out the 2012 season and be eligible in 2013…

All’s Quiet on the Expansion and Realignment Front (Mr. SEC)

What’s the latest on conference expansion? Nothing. For now. As the playoff meetings play out in Chicago, university officials from across the country are watching with bated breath. Depending on how things shake out in the Windy City, we could be in for some more stormy weather on the conference realignment front. Or we could finally enjoy a peaceful summer. (Here’s hoping for peace, for once)…

Talking Boston College Football Season Ticket Sales With Chris Cameron (BC Interruption)

Last week I renewed my football season tickets and was able to add an adjacent seat to the two I already had for next season as well. Since the season ticket holder renewal deadline had already passed by more than a month, I figured that the ease of renewing and adding a seat went along with the common perception that ticket sales were weak…

Maryland Making Inroads in Local Recruiting With Friendship Collegiate as Prime Example (Washington Post)

After failing to attract some of the area’s top high school football talent in recent years, Maryland has made strides locally — especially at one high school that has gained notoriety thanks to its recent success and enjoyed an influx of talent. When Maryland coaches offered Friendship Collegiate linebacker Jermaine Clark this week, he became the fifth player on the Knights roster with an offer from the school…

New Georgia/Georgia Tech Twitter War Boring in Every Possible Way (SB Nation Atlanta)

Sure, college football is more than willing to dance with the corporate devil (if it means obtaining, say, a playoff structure), but we still prefer our animosity to be organic and locally grown. The University of Georgia’s official football Twitter account has changed its handle to @WeRunThisState – OH HELL NO WHAT A BURN Y’ALL…
