ACC Coastal Division Tiebreaker Scenarios: Complete Breakdown (Tomahawk Nation)

What are the potential ACC Coastal Division tiebreaker scenarios? I break them down here to give you an idea of who Florida State will play in Charlotte for the ACC title, assuming it takes care of business against Maryland. Miami goes if: if beats Duke in Duke. It’s that simple. Granted, Miami will not be a big favorite at Duke, if at all, so it’s far from a gimme…

ACC Title Game Could Be Interesting… Really (ESPN’s ACC Blog)

Dear ACC: It’s time to call an audible. You have the power, now use it. Throw a flag on your own ACC championship game. Throw caution to the wind. Throw the Coastal Division out the back door. Give us No. 10 Florida State vs. No. 11 Clemson playing for it all. Again. Pretty please? OK, OK, so I’m half-joking — especially knowing the ACC can’t afford for either of those teams to lose again if it wants two BCS bowl bids for the second straight year…

Cavaliers Turning Into Believers (Daily Progress)

Maurice Canady was being brutally honest. Here was this freshman cornerback, not too far removed from the winning ways of his Varina High School, sitting in University of Virginia football meetings for a 2-6 team and listening to this guy tell him everything was going to be OK. Going to be OK? The Cavaliers were losers of six straight games. They couldn’t beat the average likes of Maryland and Wake Forest at home on back-to-back weeks…

Tigers in the Driver’s Seat for BCS Sugar; But What Was the ACC Thinking? (Orange and White)

Hindsight beats foresight for acuity, but is rarely preferable. Which brings up the question of ‘what was the ACC thinking?’ when the powers-that-be scheduled Clemson against Florida State in September – the Tigers’ ACC opener, even. One never knows how things will play out over the course of a season, but this one – FSU and Clemson sitting not only atop the Atlantic Division standings, but head and shoulders above everyone else in the ACC – was a pretty safe bet…

Monday Morning QB — Basketball Score and Vad Galore! (From the Rumble Seat)

What a crazy, wild, and unpredictable game we witnessed on Saturday as the Jackets outlasted UNC by a 68-50 score…in a FOOTBALL game. It was the highest scoring ACC conference game in its history, as the schools combined for 118 points. Not bad for a “high school offense”…huh bitches? Tech QB Vad Lee returned home to the Triangle, where he led Durham’s Hillside High to a state championship in 2009…

Pitt’s Up-and-Down Season Proves Coaching Has Room For Improvement (SB Nation Pittsburgh)

Pitt’s season has been about as up-and-down as any in recent memory. A cursory glance at the Panthers’ schedule shows a steady stream of two-loss trends. They started 0-2, including a surprising loss to FCS team Youngstown State. They rebounded, winning games against Virginia Tech and Gardner-Webb, appearing to right the ship. That didn’t last long as Pitt followed that up with losses to Big East foes Louisville and Syracuse…

Michael Rocco, Phillip Sims, and Virginia Cavaliers’ Win Probability vs. Miami Hurricanes (Streaking the Lawn)

So it turns out I was very wrong about my final score prediction. Good thing, because the actual game ended up as the most exciting of the season. The Hoos clung to their bowl hopes with a tense and methodical 87 yard drive ending in a fantastic catch by Jake McGee. The previously maligned Mike Rocco calmly drove his team down the field, completing a critical fourth down pass…
