Florida State’s rise to number 2 in the BCS rankings debunks an expansion era myth.

Do you remember last year during expansionpalooza, a myth that was perpetuated on blogs, message boards, and even a handful of college football talking heads that an ACC team would be the lowest rated of any undefeated power 5 conference team?

Why ACC fans should get behind Florida State now.

Let’s be clear on one thing. When I say ACC fans should get behind Florida State, I don’t mean jump on the bandwagon, and I don’t absolutely don’t mean should they win a BCS Title that’s it your title. This isn’t the SEC, where you win titles by proxy according to some of their fans. …

Unless you do not follow sports, which then it would be pretty hard that you are reading this blog post anyway, you must be following the debacle that is happening with the Miami Dolphins. What one racist, which I will not mention his name as he is not worthy of getting any more attention, has …

ACC Bowl Projections for November 3, 2013

This week will could decide the bowl fate of Florida State. Of course anything is possible, but I think this is one of Oregon’s and Alabama’s last realistic shots at losing. Oregon is at Stanford and Alabama plays LSU. It’s not vintage a LSU team, but athletically they still matchup decently with the Tide. * …

Saturday night, prime time top 10 teams, Gameday, Florida State and Miami… It has it all, except the Hurricanes have almost no chance of beating Florida State.

Who will replace coaching legends at Syracuse, Duke, UNC and Louisville?

Back in May I wrote that next year the ACC will have the greatest collection of college basketball coaches ever.  I don’t think there’s any doubt that statement. With Mike Krzyzewski,, Jim Boeheim, Roy Williams, Rick Pitino all together does it get any better. That’s 9 National Titles, 29 Final 4’s, and over 3200 wins. There’s only one problem …
