Miami Duke finish was an officiating debacle for the ACC

ACC-F

If you follow me on twitter or read the blog, you know I almost never complain officiating. Even with the teams I root for, I don’t do it. I believe officiating is poor across the country, and if you watch enough football you’ll see missed calls in every conference for and against every team. Saturday …

ACC Network Launch Delayed? It appears so or not?

ACC-F

The Atlanta Journal Constitution has reported the ACC Network Launch has been delayed.  Many of us expected the launch to be in 2017, but it appears ESPN has asked for delay of a couple of years. I could try to sugar coat this news, and say oh it will launch in 2019 now, but can …

ACC-F

College Basketball sure did sneak up on us didn’t it? For the ACC, it’s like the glory days of the conference. Duke is the defending national champion. UNC is a pre-season top 5 team. Virginia should be very good, and the conference could boast 8 or 9 NCAA tournament teams, after dominating last year’s Big …

Left for dead and forgotten, Georgia Tech shocks Florida State and what it means for the ACC.

ncf_u_paul-johnson_mb_576

Georgia Tech entered the season as a darkhorse playoff contender, the massive injuries, inexperience, and just plain ole poor football had the team sitting 2-5, and 0-4 in the ACC. They were an afterthought, a forgotten team, and a disappointment. At least that’s what the rest of us thought…. Heck I went to Georgia Tech, …

A few weeks ago I said Miami’s ugly loss at Cincinnati may have been Al Golden’s last stand.   Oh it was worse Saturday, so much worse for Al Golden and Miami. The Clemson Tigers rolled into Miami and defeated the Hurricanes 58-0. If this doesn’t force a change at Miami nothing will. Clemson is very …
