The Clemson defense appears ready for Louisville, but not the offense.

deshaun-watson-starter

Louisville still has Marshall to play this weekend before the big showdown at Death Valley with the Clemson Tigers. I’m going to assume Louisville takes care of business. I think that is a safe bet. Thursday night Clemson headed to Atlanta to play Georgia Tech. The Tigers won 26-7, and a couple of things are …

Florida State and Jimbo Fisher are at a crossroads.

FSU_Title

Yesterday Florida State was pulverized in a way that I didn’t think was possible by the Louisville Cardinals. This wasn’t a 5 Turnover game that turned a close game into a blowout like a couple of years ago in a 59-20 loss to Oregon. Florida State was beaten every which way possible against Louisville. The …

Georgia Tech quietly improving moves to 3-0 after crushing Vanderbilt.

Justin-Thomas-Georgia-Tech

When you are coming off a 3-9 season, you can’t take any games the next year for granted. With a less than daunting, but still a dangerous opening three games, Georgia Tech needed to open the season 3-0 if there was any chance of having a bowl season. Mercer in game two wouldn’t be a …

Louisville with breakthrough win joins playoff chase by destroying Florida State.

Louisville v Purdue

We didn’t know quite what to make of Louisville before Saturday. Sure QB Lamar Jackson had rolled up yards against a bad Kentucky team and against Texas A&M in the bowl game last year. This season UNC-Charlotte and Syracuse turned into a highlight reels for Jackson, but this was Florida State coming to town. These …

The ACC has never looked better at the Quarterback position.

deshaun-watson-starter

Sometimes it’s take the national media a little while to catch on. I tweeted after watching Florida State QB’s Deondre Francois shred the Ole Miss defense to pieces in the 2nd half. The quarterbacking in the ACC is just sick. Watson, Francois, Jackson, Kaaya, Thomas, Trubisky, Evans…. — Jeff or Jeffrey Fann (@TalkinACCSports) September 6, …
