Miami_Baseball

It’s been 59 years since the ACC has a won a CWS Title. At the rate the NCAA College Baseball Tournament is going, we’re getting close to going ahead and just penciling that in to be 60 years and counting. I have to call this one like I see it. The opening 2 days of …

The ACC doesn’t have to catch the SEC in football.

fsugator

SouthernPigskin had an article today titled ” Is Paul Johnson Bad for the ACC “. It was an interesting, but flawed piece. The author’s premise is that for the ACC to catch the SEC in football they need to start winning more recruiting battles in the state of Georgia. Paul Johnson as the head coach …

The ACC athletic’s program with the most conference titles in the past decade is…

FSU_Title

An interesting article that comes from the dean of ACC journalists David Teel of the Daily Press. Teel looks back on the past decade since the ACC started first expansion moves in 2003-2004. Which ACC athletics program has the most conference titles? I think most would assume Florida State, but even with 44 conference titles …

Maryland’s move to the Big 10 will be tougher on Terrapin fans that travel to Conference Championship Events.

university-of-maryland-terrapins-rock-their-new-jerseys

Maryland is leaving for the Big 10 and that’s inevitable. Louisville is joining the ACC, and that’s obviously inevitable too. College athletics will go on, and everybody will adjust. As I was watching Georgia Tech and Maryland play today, one thought came to mind seeing the Maryland fans in attendance. Greensboro, NC is a whole …

Georgia Tech wins the ACC Baseball Tournament.

GTBaseball

Every once I have to completely put my fan boy hat on. Sunday I had to do that, when Georgia Tech won the ACC baseball title. I’m not big on the pool play format, but the Yellow Jackets went 4-1 during the tournament and deserved the title. I’m a Georgia Tech alum, and if you …

Quietly Duke has one of the ACC’s hottest athletic programs.

cutcliffe-dodd

This will be a short post, but something has caught my eye with the events of the last few months. When you think of the top athletics program in the ACC, it’s hard to argue that Florida State isn’t leading the way. The Seminoles won a national title in football. Their women’s softball team has …

Informal scheduling partnership on deck for the ACC and SEC?

fsugator

Interesting report from CBSSports’ Jeremy Fowler… He reported today that the ACC-SEC could be on their way to an informal scheduling agreement.  “The ACC and SEC have created a de facto partnership as the lone power conferences to maintain an eight-game scheduling model entering the College Football Playoff.” This clearly means the ACC and SEC …

Big 10 is closing deals for Cable Distribution in the NY/NJ area. What it means for the ACC both good and bad.

FSU_Title

Remember when some said why was the Big 10 picking up Maryland and Rutgers? It certainly wasn’t for their athletic prowess. Rutgers in particular has been an absolute PR nightmare for the Big 10 and itself, but Jim Delany brought Rutgers and Maryland to the Big 10 for one reason, cable subscribers. The Big 10′s …

Combined ACC Football and Basketball Coaches Hotseat Rankings.

Brian_Gregory

You’ve always seen coaching hotseat rankings for football or basketball, but how often have you seen them combined? I was thinking which school might have to be doing a double duty, in the near future if you know what I mean. This will be our ranking systems. 5 – Firing Imminent barring a miracle 4 …
