I think we are far enough into the college football season to start getting a feel where the ACC Bowl teams end up.  I also link several bowl projections from around several various sports sites.

ACC showing signs of being the football conference John Swofford always dreamed of.

FSU_Miami

If you watched Saturday’s ACC games you may not agree with the title of this post. The quality of the games ok honestly wasn’t that good today, but there’s a difference from years past. Instead of a slew of 3-4, 4-3 teams jockeying for position, there’s bonafide national interest to what is happening in the …

What some college football teams wear and what it costs.

AlabamaAuburn

I had this sent to me from Matt Schexnayder. Interesting graphic… Every fall weekend, thousands of football players trot onto the fields of college stadiums all across the country. With pride, these players wear uniforms showcasing their school colors and logos. However, did you know that college football equipment—the jerseys, the pads, the helmets—represents a …

The rebirth of Florida State football.

FSU_Jones

Following the January 2001 Orange Bowl BCS Title that Florida State lost 13-2 to Oklahoma, the Seminoles started a slow unmistakable decline in their program. It culminated in a humiliating 30-0 home loss to Wake Forest on November 11, 2006. To me at that point any shred of connection to the once great Seminole teams …

CFB PO Logo

As I read this small post over at FBSschedules, which announced the 13 member committee that will be giving the college football fan base the first ever Final Four, one sentence came to my mind… “let the mayhem begin”.
