Is North Carolina in trouble after getting crushed by Florida State?

BarnesHAR

Is North Carolina in trouble? What’s wrong in Chapel Hill? These seems to be some of the prevailing thoughts going around after Florida State ripped the number 3 ranked Tar Heels 90-57. There is no question that this was an ugly and embarrassing loss for the Heels, but I’m going put to the game into …

Will the ACC only get 3 teams into the NCAA tournament?

UNC_basketball

We are only 2 weeks into January, and already the NCAA bubble for ACC teams is shrinking. North Carolina and Duke will be in the NCAA tournament. Virginia is just about a lock. If the Cavaliers 14-2 start doesn’t convince you I’m not sure what will. They had Duke sweating in Thursday’s 61-58 loss in …

LSU+v+Alabama+-Vxc1y603mcl

The college football season has been over for less than a week, and I’m finished with 2011 and ready to look at 2012. My top 25 will probably change once some rosters get settle, but right now let’s see if your team makes this early pre-season poll. We aren’t even going to worry about schedule, just pure team power rankings. 1. …

ACC NCAA Bubble Analysis for January 9, 2011

FSU_basketball

NCAA tournament selections are not for 2 months, but that doesn’t mean it’s not too early to start tracking the ACC teams on a week by week basis. Especially since as many 8 ACC teams have the ability to play their way into the 3rd, 4th and 5th position in the ACC Standings. The ACC …

2011 ACC Football Wrap Up and Final Grades.

Pack

Mercifully the ACC football season has come to end, and what a terrible end it was. The ACC finished the bowl season 2-6, and fell to 2-13 in BCS games after Virginia Tech was defeated by Michigan in the Sugar Bowl and Clemson was humiliated by West Virginia in the Orange Bowl . There are …

Two sport’s blogger success stories.

FCS

There’s been an article I’ve been wanted to put together for a little while. Anyone that’s ever started a sports blog does so because they are passionate about sports. They have opinions and they want to share them. Hey I do to obviously. I think any writer out there ultimately wants people to read their …

What the *$@!%&# happened to Clemson in the Orange Bowl?

Dabo

I’m not a negative guy. I don’t like to write negative blog posts, but each ACC bowl game result seemed to get worse as the post season continued. Teams that lacked effort, questionable coaching decisions close losses, blowouts, on and on, but the bottom fell out Wednesday night in one spectacular meltdown by the Clemson Tigers …

In Sugar Bowl loss and season, it’s the same old story for Virginia Tech.

Beamer2

When you’re Frank Beamer and Virginia Tech, the standards are different for you from the rest of the ACC. The Hokies have been the ACC’s top program since expansion. There is no debate about that… None. Again the Hokies won 10 or more games, and again the Hokies went to the ACC Title game. That’s …

Virginia Tech and Clemson hold the ACC’s reputation in their hands.

Dwayne Allen, Jayron Hosley

It’s been a rough bowl season for the ACC… again. The conference is sitting at 2-4 in the bowl season, and as SouthernTimeGirlsandSports writes it’s now or never for the ACC. I can’t disagree. Florida State came through with a hard fought win over Notre Dame and NC State took care of business against Louisville, and …

Despite Chick Fil A Bowl loss, future is bright for Mike London and Virginia.

London

Some bowl losses are easier to swallow than others. For Virginia fans I think this is one of those times. A 43-24 loss to Auburn in the Chick Fil A Bowl is not how you want to end the season, but Virginia fans have a lot to feel good about. They also know exactly where …
