Wednesday is nation signing day, so football will take center stage. What do our ACC Bloggers see happening on the big day? Florida State has a NSD preview provided by TomahawkNation. Should be a great class for the Noles. Some folks around the Virginia Tech camp think this could be one of the best classes …

More proof of just how much recruiting matters or is it?

BCS1

A couple of days ago I wrote, that the 6 winningest ACC programs over the last 3 years were also 6 best recruiting teams, with one exception NC State. The Wolfpack were 9th in recruiting and 6th in total wins. Here we take it a step further. We’ll look at things nationally. Thankfully yahoo.com already …

ACC NCAA Bubble Analysis for January 29, 2011

FSU_basketball

Do you realize  there’s only a bit more than month until selection Sunday. If you’re going to make a move you better make it soon. In my ranking system, any RPI top (100) win is a good win and any RPI top (50) obviously worth more. Any losses outside the RPI top (100) is considered …

Which ACC football program is the most efficient at recruiting?

VT_Defense

National Signing Day is this Wednesday. You bring in a new recruiting class, everything and anything is possible because you don’t know who might be an All-American and who might be bust. We all know recruiting is an inexact science. Kids looking great in HS doesn’t always translate to collegiate success. Coaches coach players up …

Has North Carolina turned the corner?

BarnesHAR

Simple and to the point poll. After the Heels got humiliated at FSU, they’ve won two games in row over Virginia Tech and NC State by double digits. I have my opinion, but I’m asking the reader have the Heels turned the corner and become the team many thought they could be? Has North Carolina …

Who is the hottest team in the ACC? No question it’s Florida State. The Noles go from being the hunter to being the hunted, as they face a road test at Wake Forest.

ACC NCAA Bubble Analysis for January 22, 2011

BarnesHAR

For you young folks out there, that have watched ACC basketball the last 7-8 years, it wasn’t always Duke, UNC and one other team that was pretty good that year. Years ago the conference ran 6-8 really quality teams deep. Every game was a war, and every game had ACC Title and NCAA implications. This …

Did the Florida State Seminoles just become the team to beat in the ACC?

James2

The Duke Blue Devils and North Carolina Tar Heels came into this season as the prohibitive favorites to win the ACC. Sure Virginia has played pretty well. The Cavaliers even nearly won at Duke, but I’m not sure anyone was considering them a threat to win the ACC just yet. Florida State had a monster …

Significant contributors to their basketball teams suffered major injuries. Virginia’s starting center Assane Sene is projected to miss 6 weeks with a fractured right …

Which Super Bowl game do you want to see?

tom-brady

I have to be perfectly honest, I wanted to the New Orleans Saints or Green Bay Packers to play the New England Patriots in a future Hall of Fame quarterback battle, Drew Brees or Aaron Rodgers against Tom Brady. Wow would that have been fun to see, but the San Francisco 49ers and NY Giants …

ACC NCAA Bubble Analysis for January 16, 2011

Austin Rivers, Jontel Evans

If the next month and half are going to be anything like this past week, it’s going to a wild ride in the ACC this year. The ACC is going to fluctuate from having as few 3 NCAA teams to maybe having as many 6 depending on that week’s result. Mid-Week I was looking at …
