Articles from around the ACC Blogosphere September 3, 2013.


What a unbelievable first week of college football! Clemson made a statement against Georgia, the good kind. Jameis Winston looks like the real deal at Florida State, and Virginia scored a quality non conference win over BYU. Nobody in the ACC lost to anybody they weren’t supposed to. It was a solid opening for the conference. I’m sure the ACC bloggers have plenty to say about what happened.

Clemson blog ShakintheSouthland called the win over a Georgia a dream start to the season. Back to back wins over SEC top 10 teams… That’s impressive stuff. It took a little ACC team from the hills of South Carolina to do what the Big 10, Big 12, Pac 12, and Notre Dame haven’t been able to do for years, and that’s challenge the best teams in the SEC.

Tomahawknation, the Florida State Seminole blog, said QB Jameis Winston’s debut was one for the ages.  Who am I to argue? If I had just turned on the TV, I’d have thought Winston was a three year starter.

Virginia’s nice win over BYU was hard earned, and something the Cavaliers needed with Oregon coming up. StreakingtheLawn had the view from Scott Stadium.

What about the whopping 70 points Georgia Tech dropped on Elon? How do you assess a such blowout? FromtheRumbleSeat takes a look at the many positives from the game.

Boston College blog BCInterruption took notice of the ACC’s strong start to the season.  If you don’t think it matters, the guys from BC recap some the ACC’s ugly start from past years. Like I’ve said before this is an improving football conference the signs are there.

Miami has the marquee game of the week in the ACC with their matchup with Florida. StatoftheU previews this game. I tell you what I’m very intrigued by this game. Miami has knocked off some name out of conference programs at home. Back in 2009 they beat Oklahoma, and in 2011 they defeated Ohio State. Odd year – 2013 and it’s Florida. If Miami wins this game, I would give the ACC an A to start the season.
