Jimbo Fisher Blasts BCS Format (ESPN)

Lamenting his team’s position in computer polls of the latest BCS standings, Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher railed against the use of computers in determining the standings, saying he’d prefer a move back to a pre-BCS system in which human pollsters simply ranked teams at the conclusion of a season to determine a champion. “I think it stinks,” Fisher said…

Duke in Control of Coastal Division Race (ESPN’s ACC Blog)

This is it Duke. Your time has arrived, gift wrapped with a tidy little blue and white bow. Take it. Run with it. Do not look back at the carnage that is the Coastal Division. You have an opportunity to rise above the muck, because well, events have conspired to make this your year. Virginia Tech is down. Georgia Tech is down. North Carolina is ineligible. Miami is not really Miami, not anymore…

Georgia Tech as Coastal Champion? Yep, It Could Happen (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

With one conference game remaining, Georgia Tech stands a real chance of winning the Coastal Division. This development is so outrageous as to shock someone who picked Georgia Tech to win the Coastal Division. Namely, me. Know how bettors at the horse track turn losing tickets into a cascade of confetti? That’s what I’d done, albeit figuratively, with that prediction. Tech was 2-4 halfway through the season, 1-3 in ACC play…

The State of the U: An Introspective (State of the U)

This piece isn’t likely going to make any friends, and it damn sure may make me some enemies, but it’s contents are straight from the mind of a die hard Canes fan. Everything I am about to say in this thing is based on reality and logic. If you don’t like any of those things, choosing instead to pin your hopes and dreams on what your team used to be and, in your mind, should always be, you may not want to read any further…

Maryland’s Defense is Way Better Than You Think (Tomahawk Nation)

Quick. Name the two teams in ACC play that have allowed fewer than 5 yards/play. Florida State and…? That’s right, Maryland. Maryland is one of the two best defenses FSU has faced so far this season, along with Virginia Tech. You can argue that it is better than Tech, but you cannot argue that any non-tech defense is a better unit…

Could Blowouts Be Hurting Tajh Boyd, Offensive Perception? (Orange and White)

Life is good for Clemson offensive coordinator Chad Morris. The Tigers’ offense is in the top 7 nationally in both scoring and total offense, and 12th in passing offense. Monday, questions posed to Morris discussed the Tigers’ recent turnover spike, but also discussed if junior quarterback Tajh Boyd is a bit underrated, and the benefits – and drawbacks – of recent dominance…

UNC QB Williams Deserves Late-Season Snaps (Fox Sports Carolinas)

Among the areas of concern facing first-year North Carolina football coach Larry Fedora and his staff is the fairly immediate future of quarterback within the program. Incumbent starter Bryn Renner is a fine college quarterback. He makes nice reads, throws a good deep ball and can hit the short stuff. He moves fairly well in the pocket and he is a leader in the huddle, on the rare occasion the Tar Heels even bother huddling…
