Articles from around the ACC Blogosphere July 10, 2012

Less than 2 months until football season… Less than 2 months until football season. It can’t come soon enough. In the meantime we’ll see what our ACC Bloggers are talking about to try and get us through until college football starts.

The big ACC news at moment seems to growing possibility of an affiliation between Notre Dame and the ACC, specifically the possibility of pairing the two in the Orange Bowl. Boston College blog BCInterruption calls it a Catch-22 when dealing with Notre Dame. 

The catch being by giving the Irish a major bowl deal, Notre Dame can retain their independence. i.e not joining any conference.

An interesting take, but I’m not sure I agree. This is just too risky a gamble for the ACC. Sure the ACC could be hardline, but some conference will deal with Notre Dame. Why not the ACC? As long as the Irish meet some specific Orange Bowl criteria 9+ wins top 15 ranking, I’m good with it. I like the idea of opening season games with Notre Dame too. Well see what the final agreement is.

Continuing with the ACC preview theme. Tomahawknation.com is getting us familiar with the FSU football players. Here is writeup on WR Rashad Greene.  This freshman WR didn’t get the accolades Sammy Watkins did, but Greene is a future star. I have him in my top 5 of Wide Receivers in the ACC.

Who are going to be Georgia Tech’s impact players in the fall? FromtheRumbleSeat tell us their thoughts.

There is an intriguing early season game with NC State playing Tennessee. NC State blog Backing the Pack is doing a nice position by position comparison of the Wolfpack and Vols. He’s looking at the linebackers in this piece.

North Carolina blog KeepingItHeel has the newly released Tar Heel basketball roster. The Heels might not have the bevy of first round picks they had this year, but that still looks like a top 15 team to me.
