Future ACC Football Scheduling: Improving The Conference’s Final Regular Season Weekend (BC Interruption)

One of the main topics to be discussed at this week’s ACC winter meetings in Fort Lauderdale is future scheduling. Lots of chatter about inter-conference partnerships and scheduling these days, actually.

As soon as Taquan Mizzell walked through the tunnel for the first time in John Paul Jones Arena, there was no waiting to see if anyone would recognize him.

The State of Recruiting In: North Carolina, Feb. 2 (ACC Sports Journal)

Recruiting the 2013 class of football prospects in North Carolina has been a hit and miss proposition for Atlantic Coast Conference teams as national signing day approaches. The ACC has scored some major talent among the 31 players who have made verbal commitments to league schools, including one pledged to incoming member Syracuse.

One-on-One With Syracuse Football Head Coach Scott Shafer (CNY Central)

Coach Scott Schafter has been on the job three weeks and spent the entire time trying to calm nervous recruits and fill holes in the coaching staff.   Last Friday he arrived back in Central New York after a 26 hour cross country trek, “There are only so many hours in the day and we’ve had to work hard to get to these kids and help them make their decisions, maybe swing the decision our way,” Shafer told Michael Benny…
