NolesSooners

Today it was reported on CBSSportsline.com that the Big 12 spelled out the “withdrawl procedures” for Texas A&M.   I thought oh man more expansion news, more who’s going… leaving, blah blah. Really I’m expansioned out… Then it’s twitter to the rescue. I wish I could credit the person whose idea this was, because heres comes the truly inspired Conference Application Questions. I had …

Hey NFL don’t go changing running quarterbacks.

michael-vick

 I wrote recently about Cam Newton’s early criticism being unwarranted. My main reason for that is that rookie quarterbacks in the NFL will struggle we all know that. The Carolina Panthers can do some things though to make Newton’s transition from college to the NFL easier, and Gregg Doyel of CBSSportsline makes a very good point in his article “Pocket guide …

The early criticism of Cam Newton is unwarranted.

cam-newton

I debated posting anything this weekend, when all of our friends from North Carolina to the North East are under a deluge of rain and wind from Hurricane Irene. I figured though some of you out there could use a distraction. Here’s hoping that all of everyone dries out quickly. I’ve been watching and reading …

3 College Football Teams outside of the Top 10 that could play for the National Title.

VT_Defense

Let’s face it pre-season rankings are an inexact science. In fact there are plenty of people that think the first polls shouldn’t be released until a month into the college football season. For teams that start the season outside of the top 10, to get to the BCS title game, you’ve got to win obviously …

What 2011 record will put an ACC football coach on the hotseat?

Swinney_Johnson

For the first time in years I really can’t name an ACC football coach that’s on the hotseat. I know Dabo Swinney’s name keeps coming up, but seriously he’s isn’t going anywhere. He’s only a year removed from an ACCCG appearance, and has been doing a wonderful job recruiting. That said for Swinney and the …

Quickly Breaking down the Pre-Season AP Top 25.

NolesSooners

So the AP top 25 poll came out today. There’s been a lot of discussion about whether these polls should come in October, as they create an unfair advantage for the teams near the top. There’s always time to lose early and recover. Personally I don’t have much problem with them. They create conversation pieces, …

Adding the Miami Hurricanes to the ACC has been a total failure.

Miami2

Before any Canes rip me apart, let me preface this blog post, I thought it was a great idea to add Miami to the ACC. In fact of the 3 additions to the ACC, Boston College, Virginia Tech, and Miami, I felt the Hurricanes clearly were the most obvious choice. Geographically being in Florida it …

What does the ACC need to do to ensure it’s future as a conference?

ClemsonLoss

Texas A&M didn’t join the SEC this weekend, but the talks of expansion across the country are hardly over. There are rumors that the Aggies could join the SEC within 21 days, a year or not at all. To my personal dismay the ACC is often seen as a conference that will eventually get picked …
