Articles from around the ACC Blogosphere September 2, 2014.

Louisville v Purdue

Well week 1 is in the books college football. Some ACC teams are feeling pretty good about things, while others would love a reset on the season.

Let’s find out what the ACC Bloggers think.

Clemson Blog ShakintheSouthland asks where does Clemson go from here after the loss to Georgia. They echoed a lot of what I thought after the defeat. In particular I agreed with Chad Morris going into South Carolina play calling mode. In addition, if this is the type of special teams play we can expect from Clemson, it’s going to cost them a game they are favored in.

Georgia Tech blog FromtheRumbleSeat answered several questions from fans following the Jackets uneven over Wofford.  So who is Georgia Tech? I think we’ll find out a little bit more against Tulane.  I do think QB Justin Thomas showed a lot potential.

What went wrong for Florida State against Oklahoma St? Seminoles blog Tomahawknation tells us the players didn’t practice well and underestimated Oklahoma St.   At least  FSU didn’t go all SEC bowl game loss with the excuses and say they weren’t interested in the game. That said if the Seminoles play that sloppy again, they won’t make it out of the regular season undefeated.

Do the Hokies have a chance at Ohio State? That’s the question Hokie blog GobblerCountry asks. I tell you what without Braxton Miller, the Buckeyes looked vulnerable against Navy. This is Virginia Tech’s most important game since the 2012 Sugar Bowl against Michigan. It’s the kind of win that can make Virginia Tech nationally relevant again.

Pittsburgh and Boston College rolled comfortably in their opening games. This week they face off in a pivotal game for both teams. Pittsburgh blog CardiacHill takes at first glance at this game.  Watch out for the Panthers if they win this one.

Louisville got their first ACC win Monday, and Cardinal blog CardChronicle has 5 thoughts from the win over Miami. Louisville was added to help the ACC’s football depth, and now is already ranked in the AP top 25. Louisville is going to be a tough this year.
