Good morning, Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) sports fans. Hope you had a great Christmas!!!
Two ACC football teams play in bowl games today, including :
- Boston College who takes on Maryland in the Quick Lane Bowl at 1 PM EST; and
- North Carolina State who plays Vanderbilt in the Independence Bowl at 4 PM EST.
Until then, we want to catch you up on what’s going on the the ACC Blogosphere (and really basketball focused)… here we go:
- @Robert_Reinhard of SB Nation Wake Forest Blog, @BloggerSoDear, drops his impression of the Demon Deacon’s men’s basketball performance in the non-conference season. Sounds like Deacs fans have a better offense to watch this season.
- @RubbingTheRock tells us about a good week for Clemson Men’s Basketball, who had their first EVER road win over a top 25 non-conference opponent.
- Louisville sport blog, Louisville Sports Live (you can follow that account on Twitter at @LvilleSportsLive - and let me tell you, they are great friends of our site) tell us that Athletic Director Tom Jurich really needs to improve his public relations with the media (this was a terrific opinion post on how Jurich handled Wakeyleaks). We did agree with our Louisville friends.
- SB Nation Virginia Cavaliers sports blog, Streaking the Lawn, drops their men’s basketball power rankings here – and I have nothing to complain about – these are spot on.
- Our friends from SB Nation Boston College sports blog, @BCInterruption, review a big win for their men’s basketball program – Boston College Eagles defeated the Providence this past week. This was a Ken Pom top 100 win for Boston College.
- @TechLunchPailD tells us that Virginia Tech is in the mix for South Florida transfer guard, Jahmal McMurray – Buzz Williams keeps working hard!!
And that’s it – please check back again soon for another edition of Around the ACC Blogosphere.
