BCSThrophy

Normally Monday is the day we scour the ACC Blogosphere for what’s going on in the ACC, but today with the release of the new playoff format well I have some thoughts on it. @HokieGuru has sent me the press releases he receives as a member of the ACSMA and you can read that after a couple …

I think we are sufficiently close to the bowl season to start looking at where the ACC Bowl teams could end up. It was actually a pretty good weekend for the ACC. At one time it looked the ACC might only get 5 teams bowl eligible, but Georgia Tech’s recent surge might give the ACC …

ACC Week 11 awards: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

FSU_joyner

The Good Lesson Learned Florida State was on the road late against an inferior opponent and struggling. We’d seen this story before against NC State, when Florida State inexplicably lost 17-16 in Raleigh. Now they were in Blacksburg blowing another double digit second half. The only difference is that FSU bent and bent, but didn’t …

Look who made NBC’s must follow College Basketball Directory…

BarnesHAR

The College Basketball season started Friday. There are no moral victories but Maryland taking Kentucky down to the wire has to be encouraging to Terp fans. Not so much for Florida State who lost at home to South Alabama. Virginia without Mike Scott looks like a lower division ACC team after losing to George Mason. …

miami20logo

Since we’re all filling out ballots and voting today, I’ve got a poll you can vote on. There’s a little less at stake here than choosing the leader of the free world, but hey I think the results will still be interesting. Last Thursday the Miami Hurricanes indicated there was a possibility they may self-impose …

My 1 hour BCS Computer Ranking versus the “expert” BCS Rankings.

BCS1

In this really so difficult? On and on debate and after debate. Complicated computer algorithms that don’t seem to make any sense. In about 45 minutes I came up with my own computer rankings, that you could argue are as accurate as computer poll we use. It may even need a little tweaking, but remember …

ACC Week 10 awards: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

clemson-watkins2

The Good No Clemsoning in 2012 The inexplicable road loss won’t be happening for Clemson this year. This offense is putting up points like pinball machine, and is getting better and better each week. They are getting up early on opponents like tonight leading Duke 42-17 at the half before winning 56-20. Ok Easy prediction, …

Quick impressions of Miami’s win over Virginia Tech.

Miami3

Just a short post tonight after watching Miami’s 30-12 victory over Virginia Tech. Quick name a can’t playmaker on Virginia Tech’s team? Can’t name one? Neither can I. QB Logan Thomas has some raw ability, but is inconsistent at best. RB J.C Coleman has some speed, but is not a game changer. The Hokies stand at 4-5 …
