Articles from around the ACC Blogosphere August 2, 2011

Only a month away… Only a month away… Only a month away from college football. Ok so what are the ACC bloggers doing to get this month over with as quickly as possible?

The biggest story last week was the Butch Davis firing at North Carolina. Is UNC headed back to the days of Tar Heel basketball and well Tar Heel basketball? Is football about to become irrelevant there for the foreseeable future? UNC Blog TarHeelFanblog says “UNC does NOT Have to be Sentenced to Football Purgatory.” The Bottom line as TarHeelFanBlog points out, a lot of this is going to depend on how hard the NCAA comes down on North Carolina in the upcoming months. It’s a nervous time for Tar Heel football fans.

Georgia Tech Blog From the Rumble Seat, writes “4th Year is the Critical Year for Paul Johnson”. I would certainly agree. Gone are most of the Gailey recruits. These are just about all Johnson’s guys. Especially after a very disappointing 6-7 season Johnson has to prove that was the exception. He doesn’t need an ACC Title, but a bowl win might be a good start. Johnson is 0-3 in those games.

Want to get familiar with the Boston College lineup for 2011. Check out BC blog SoaringtoGlory. He’s doing a day by day breakdown of the Eagles at each position.

Uh oh did “Duke basketball Commit a recruiting violation” asks Duke Blogger BigDukeBalls.com. Coach K has a clean record, and there’s no reason why this appears anymore that simple misunderstanding. I just hope no one in Georgia Tech’s athletic department gets near this or a secondary violation at worst will turn into a multi-year probation punishment.

E.J Manual of Florida State is entering 2011 as the pre-season All-ACC pick at Quarterback. No pressure there for the fairly inexperienced Manual. He has two bowl wins and a wealth of potential, but maybe you’re not familiar with Manual or the other quarterbacks at FSU behind him. Nole blog Plant the Spear takes a look at the FSU Quarterbacks. Other depth chart positions are also covered.
