ACC Basketball Stock following the ACC\Big 10 Challenge.

First before talking basketball, let me welcome Louisville to the ACC. I was calling calling for Lousivlle the moment Maryland departed for the Big 10. Is it a game-changer? No… Is it a good fit.

You might not like Duke basketball, but you better respect it.

With the ACC\Big 10 challenge starting Tuesday, it’s the official transition from football season to basketball for me. That said in the early part of the season there’s one team that’s already put together a resume that most number 1 seeds would be happy to have by season’s end, that’s the Duke Blue Devils. Now …

Articles from around the ACC Blogosphere November 26, 2012.

Not good a past week for the ACC by any measure…. Maryland is leaving the ACC, the conference was whacked on the field by the SEC, and ACC Championship game tickets are going for less than lunch at McDonalds. Honestly though I don’t know how anyone can drum up much interest for a 6-6 Georgia …

Just how important are Clemson’s and Florida State’s games against their in-state rivals Saturday?

Now that I have little time to blog there are a couple of huge games Saturday for Clemson and Florida State. I posted the ACCDN’s preview the other day for them… , but here’s my thoughts on the game, not from a matchup standpoint, but from the perspective of how important these games are for the …

ACC trys to regroup after Maryland joins the Big Ten

Who should the ACC add as the 14th full member?

Maryland is history… It’ll be weird. I grew up with the Terps in the ACC, but this is modern landscape of college athletics… I admire the Terp fans who in large part openly opposed the move. I would as well as a Clemson and Georgia Tech fan. Ok the ACC can sit around feeling sorry …

Well throw it out the window. In one crazy weekend that might land Maryland in a new conference, the Big 10 may have changed the model for expansion. Forget …

ACC Week 12 awards: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

The Good 2 ACC BCS Teams again?  Clemson moved to 10-1 today with a 14 point win over NC State. Florida State routed Maryland 41-14 in a game that wasn’t that close. It’s very possible that the ACC could get 2 BCS teams for the 2nd straight year. In fact if Clemson beats South Carolina, …

Behind the ACC’s Orange Bowl and Playoff Money.

This past week the ACC finalized their deal with Orange Bowl and ESPN, and there was little more nervousness in ACC Circles that maybe the ACC didn’t get a good deal because they are splitting the $55 Million TV deal evenly with the Big 10 and SEC in years those conferences are in the Bowl. While I …

Are Clemson and Florida State ranked too low in the BCS standings?

Not much to blog the last couple of days, but that doesn’t we don’t have content for you at AllSportsDiscussion. A few days Jimbo Fisher ranted about the BCS computer rankings. The ACCDN’s Riley Skinner agrees with Fisher and feels that Clemson and Florida State aren’t ranked high enough. For me it’s really simple… Florida …
