ACC Expansion Talk: Is There Room for 16 Teams? (CBS Sports)

ACC presidents could vote on a Maryland replacement as early as this week, but two league sources believe an expansion to 16 is unlikely at this time. UConn and Louisville are the favorites for the league’s future 14th team. Maryland’s defection to the Big Ten leaves the ACC with 13 entering the 2013 season.

Mediocrity Undoes Tom O’Brien (ESPN’s ACC Blog)

Tom O’Brien might have been his own worst opponent this season. After all, he is the one who raised expectations this past summer by claiming that this was his deepest and most experienced team of his six-year tenure in Raleigh.

Miami fans still upset over the school’s decision to self-impose another bowl ban are probably kicking themselves and filled with the “what if” question. It is a reasonable assumption, and they are certainly justified in thinking that way. After all, with the Hurricanes’ 52-45 victory over Duke here at Wallace Wade Stadium on Saturday, they would have won the Coastal Division with a 5-3 league mark (7-5 overall)…
