Sure the defeat looks bad for the ACC. The Wolfpack were considered a darkhorse in the ACC Atlantic, but lets not get …

It’s here! The first weekend college football! Excuse my excitement, but except for the Olympics and the occasional Golf Major I’ve been in sports Siberia since about May.

North Carolina State can make a statement against Tennessee Friday Night.

Pack

As I was putting together my ACC Atlantic Division prediction, I got to NC State and for the first time in a number of years I was really paying attention to the Wolfpack. As recently as the middle of last year, I thought Tom O’Brien was going to be at best on the hotseat entering 2013 and …

Dabo Swinney must again prove against Auburn that Clemson is on the rise.

andre-ellington2

Nearly 1 year ago, I wrote an article titled “Beating Auburn would start erasing doubts about Dabo Swinney and Clemson Football.” Clemson won that game 38-24 in a game where Sammy Watkins said hello to the nation with 10 receptions for 155 yards and 2 TDS. The Tigers went on to defeat Florida State and …
