In fact a couple of teams have already played their opening conference teams. Several ACC teams have quality non-conference wins, which is what the committee looks at heavily. The ACC has …

ACC wins the most major college football awards, has the most All-Americans, and now FSU’s Jameis Winston wins the Heisman Trophy.

If you are an ACC football coach and you can’t use the 2013 season to help you in recruiting nothing will. A team in the national game with Florida State. There’s a second ACC team in Clemson in a BCS game. 3 times this year, Gameday was at an ACC stadium. What more could John …

If Florida State stops the SEC’s 7 year Title run, the Seminoles won’t just be a great team, they will be a legendary one.

JimboFisher

When January 6th, 2014 arrives, the Florida State Seminoles will be playing the Auburn Tigers for the National Championship. They will not be be playing the S-E-C. Tomahawknation wrote a great piece of satire in their article Florida State faces huge challenge in defeating SEC in title game. As much as the ACC will take pride …

College Football News writer predicts ACC will go 0-11 during bowl season.

JimboFisher

Now I’ve never said the ACC was country’s premier football conference. It’s not, but it’s gotten better and it’s getting better. In the past year the ACC went 4-2 in the last bowl season, won an Orange Bowl, and beat name programs like Georgia, Florida, LSU, USC, and Notre Dame. Florida State has been the country’s …

No BCS controversy : It’s Florida State and Auburn for it all.

JimboFisher

Just got back from the ACC Championship. It was the 2nd time this year I’ve seen Florida State up close. I was impressed with them every bit as much as when I saw them dismantle Clemson. While FSU winning the ACCCG was never going to be in doubt, Duke landed some early punches on the …

The 8 Team college football playoff format that I hope to see one day.

BCSThrophy

The BCS was great because we had an exciting regular season all the games mattered! No I don’t like it, because my conference is tougher than your conference and your schedule stinks anyways. The SEC apologists are so much fun. We can have both though, a meaningful regular season and an exciting and lucrative playoff. …

ACC Winners and Losers of the 2013 ACC-Big 10 Challenge

Mike+Krzyzewski+Kyle+Singler+ACC+Basketball+K9zD9jfs-l1l

This year’s ACC-Big 10 Challenge was very revealing about how the ACC is as a basketball conference this year. There have been a mixture of maruqee wins and ugly losses for ACC teams early this season, but I think we have a handle now about where some teams are. The ACC and Big 10 are …

First, Last, and only thoughts on the Jameis Winston investigation.

jameis-winston-florida-state

I’ve refrained from discussing the Jameis Winston story either on here or on twitter until the investigation reached it’s end. It was a personal choice, and I have no problem with anyone that speculated on the investigation. I do think there were some disgusting articles that rushed to judgement. That said Jameis Winston will not …

It’s ACC Championship week! We have the Florida State Seminoles who may the best team in the country playing the best Duke team in history. FSU is the overwhelming favorite. Let’s not kid ourselves it’s going to take a miracle for Duke to win, but that speaks more to how good FSU is, because the …

ACC Bowl Projections for December 1, 2013

Chick

More bowl chaos… Yes! That’s what makes college football so great. The ACC has 11 bowl eligible teams. Syracuse and Pittsburgh are the odd teams out for the ACC’s designated bowl slots, but most projections I’ve seen have them somewhere. The Little Ceasar Pizza Bowl seems to be a popular destination for Pitt, and I’ve …

SEC apologists – Please stop whining if Florida State plays Ohio State for the national title.

BCSThrophy

What an epic day in college football it was. Auburn with their improbable incredible victory over Alabama on a return for a touchdown off a missed FG. Michigan failing to make a 2 pt conversion which resulted in a 42-41 win for Ohio State. The results put the Buckeyes in the position for the national …
