FSU’s Focus in On the Big Picture (Fox Sports Carolinas)

Florida State answered a few questions in pulling away from Clemson last Saturday night in a rare ACC matchup of top-10 teams. The fourth-ranked Seminoles didn’t succumb to the moment as they did a year earlier when hosting top-ranked Oklahoma. FSU staggered around for a while before getting its bearings, and when it did, Jimbo Fisher’s team reminded many FSU fans of the Bobby Bowden squads of the 1990s…

Miami Could Be Biggest Threat to Virginia Tech’s ACC Coastal Dominance (Daily Press)

From 2000-03, Miami’s football program went 46-4, won a national championship, owned the Big East and never finished below fifth in the national polls. In eight subsequent ACC seasons, the Hurricanes haven’t sniffed a conference title. Might that change in 2012? Could Miami be the greatest threat to Virginia Tech’s Coastal Division dominance? Early returns are encouraging for the U…

Neutral Site Regular Season College Football Games a Tough Sell (BC Interruption)

Virginia Tech returns to FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland this Saturday to take on the Cincinnati Bearcats. Unlike the Hokies last trip to FedEx Field, a near-sell out against the Boise State Broncos to open the 2010 season, plenty of seats still available for this weekend’s Hokies-Bearcats tussle. According to a report in the Washington Post, the Washington Redskins let Virginia Tech know that only 38,000 tickets had been sold to this weekend’s game…

What is Wrong With the Clemson Defense? (Shakin’ the Southland)

Since the FSU game, but also during the offseason after the Orange Bowl, everyone seems to be asking me “What the hell is wrong with our defense?” The problem is complex, but basically we’re deficient in every area relating to defensive play and offseason training will affect the offense as well. There is not one cause or one symptom that you can point to and say “if they fix this, then they’ll be alright”…

Georgia Tech Looking for Pass Rush (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

The next move belongs to Al Groh. Two Saturdays ago, the Georgia Tech defense harassed Virginia quarterbacks Michael Rocco and Phillip Sims, accumulating 16 pressures, by the Tech defensive coordinator’s count and two sacks. Saturday, Groh and his defense were plundered. The Yellow Jackets gave up 609 yards in the 42-36 overtime loss…

From the Nike Design Room: Pitt What If? (Cardiac Hill)

College football jerseys are a hot topic right now. Ever since Oregon decided they wanted to look like they were Trick or Treating every week of the season, many college football programs have experimented with different jerseys. Some look pretty awesome and others look pretty terrible. Nike used these alternate jerseys to introduce their Pro Combat jersey cuts…

What Syracuse Coach Doug Marrone Can Learn From Chip Kelly (The Juice Online)

My wife grew up in Portland, graduated from the University of Oregon, and loves her Ducks! I’m a lifelong Syracuse fan, but since there’s almost no chance Syracuse will play Oregon anytime in the near future and because my wife is much more pleasant to be around when she’s happy, I’ve found myself rooting for her Ducks too. Once you get past the weird jerseys, they’re an easy team to root for…
