ACC Panel Will Study Whether to Launch Net (Sports Business Daily)

The ACC has formed a committee of athletic directors and hired Wasserman Media Group to explore the financial benefits of launching its own conference network. While its media rights are tied up with ESPN for the next 15 years, that hasn’t stopped the conference from beginning the process of deciding whether such a channel is feasible. It hasn’t had formal talks with ESPN, which would have to play a big role in any ACC channel…

NCAA Probe of Miami Hurricanes Makes Mockery of Term ‘Speedy Trial’ (Miami Herald)

I’m not sure what the University of Miami and its football program deserve more at this point from the NCAA: a notice of allegations or a letter of apology.

In this first part, Shafer talks about his impressive debut during his news conference, and how his past experiences shaped him. Tune back Tuesday to see how he plans on making his own mark on the program…

Syracuse Football: Let’s Bury the Dead (Troy Nunes Is An Absolute Magician)

Doug Marrone is not walking through that door. Nate Hackett is not walking through that door. Zach Allen is not walking through that door. And that’s fine. I repeat, that’s fine. Syracuse Orange football will be fine. If Scott Shafer coaches as well as can fire up fans during a press conference, we’ll be fine. Nate Hackett’s replacement is going to run the same offense, according to Shafer…

It was a pretty eventful weekend for Virginia football recruiting, with one commitment and another player leaving the 2013 class. As signing day draws nearer, where does the UVa signing class stand? Find out in this today’s Recruiting Notes: Connor Wingo-Reeves is a Cavalier — Richmond native Connor Wingo-Reeves (Monacan) got an offer from Virginia Sunday afternoon, and pounced on the opportunity…

The ACC is officially considering joining the ranks of conferences with their own television network: inspired by the oodles and oodles of cash the Big Ten is raking in thanks to the Big Ten Network, the conference has created a panel and hired a consultant to discuss the possibility of making the ACC Network.
