Giving year-end final grades to the ACC Coastal Division football coaches.

Before we completely close the door on the 2016 football season, let’s hand out some grades for the ACC coaching efforts for the 2016 season.

Duke isn’t a finished a product, but win at Notre Dame shows potential.

A week ago Duke sat 3-4 in the ACC, after a demoralizing home collapse to one of the ACC’s most disappointing teams in NC State. There were whispers Duke could end up the wrong side of the bubble with road games against NCAA bubble team Wake Forest, and one of the ACC’s better teams Notre …

NC State…. What happened against Louisville????

As I sit here trying to digest another blow out loss, this time by 25 to Louisville, I am at a loss for words. The season started with such hope and aspirations for year 5 of the Mark Gottfried era. NC State had a consensus Top 5 NBA lottery pick in Dennis Smith coming in. …

Georgia Tech Is the Nicest Surprise in the #ACC (and Maybe All of College Basketball)

Good afternoon, Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) basketball fans. Raise your hand if you had Georgia Tech with ACC men’s hoops wins vs. North Carolina, Florida State, and Notre Dame – unless you were the most homer Georgia Tech fan in the world, you didn’t have this at all.  I myself had Georgia Tech at 14th …

5 Things I don’t like about the 2017 ACC Football Schedule.

The ACC has released their football schedule for 2017, and I have some gripes. Don’t worry there are some things I like, but in this piece it is the gripes. 1. Louisville/Clemson and FSU/Miami on the same date (September 16, 2017) I have a big problem with this one. The ACC was the country’s top …

ACC Bubble Analysis for January 26, 2017

This is going to be a weekly article, where I seed the ACC teams and where I think they’d should be placed if the tournament started the same day as my posting. In my ranking system, any RPI top (100) win is a good win and any RPI top (50) obviously worth more. Any losses …

Around the #ACC Blogosphere for January 26, 2017

Where did Georgia Tech come up with a 22 point blow out of #6 Florida State? Georgia Tech blog FromtheRumbleSeat was understandably pretty excited about the game and the Yellow Jackets season that has so far has exceeded expectations. Most people felt that the Kevin Stallings hire at Pittsburgh was a questionable one at best. The …

Remembering Brent Musburger as he calls it a career.

So, today is the day that ESPN has announced that Brent Musburger will no longer be calling games for the company. I must say, this is a blow to me. We all have a few announcers that paved the way for sports to come into our lives. Those announcers for me were Brent Musburger, Keith …
