The nightmare week for Georgia Tech fans : Roll Tide!

I don’t live in the state of Georgia currently, but I feel for my fellow Georgia Tech fans there. I’ve live in Georgia, and during normal times, it’s practically unbearable how much coverage the Bulldogs get in the state. They get many of the best HS players, sidewalk fans come out of no where. Even …

Taking Stock of ACC football after uneven 2017 season.

After a historic 2016 season that had an ACC team (Clemson) win the national title, Florida State win the Orange Bowl, and a 9-3 bowl record, there was only way to go and it was down. As I predicted last year, for the ACC to remain at the top of college football was unsustainable.  If fact …

Alabama beats Clemson, but Tigers built for multiple playoff runs.

The rubber match between Alabama and Clemson turned into semi-mismatch Monday night. While Clemson’s defense basically gave a heroic effort limiting Alabama to 17 points despite the Tide starting the majority of their drives near midfield, the Tiger offense was a trainwreck. From the gameplan that started too conservative and was a mess throughout, to …

Was this past season a success for NC State?

When you look at this past football season, how can you even think that a 9 win season, especially since there have only been 9 previous 9 win seasons in NC State history would be any but a success? But they way the season unfolded, you can see how disappointment of what could have been …

Miami has season to build on, but lost Orange Bowl due to sloppy play.

Miami went 10-3 and will have a top 15 season. They went to the ACC Championship game, and won the ACC Coastal Division. All nice results in 2017, and a huge improvement over the Al Golden era. Mark Richt has done exactly what I thought he would do at Miami. He made them better. I …

Louisville’s disappointing season ends with disappointing bowl loss.

If there was one ACC Bowl game, that I was prepared to call a lock it was Louisville vs Mississippi State. The Bulldogs lost their head coach, and their starting QB. When QB Nick Fitzpatrick went down against Ole Miss, their offense went south and the Bulldogs lost to their rival. Mississippi State entered the …

NC State’s patience with Dave Doeren results in 9 win 2017, a bowl victory, and a top 25 team.

I’ll be the first to admit that I wasn’t wasn’t on the Dave Doeren bandwagon. You win 9 ACC games in your first 4 seasons, and understandably questions should and will be raised. Something happened just over a year. Sitting at 5-6 and headed to play rival UNC in Chapel Hill, the hotseat was about …

Wake Forest seizes opportunity for special season with bowl win over Texas A&M.

At one point in the season Wake Forest was 7-4, with 2 games left in the season. If the Deacs could have a 8 or 9 win season, it would open eyes around the country. 7-6 year? Wake Forest has been there and done that. If you ask head coach Dave Clawson, he was looking …

Virginia Tech suffers bowl loss to Oklahoma State, but program still headed in right direction.

Virginia Tech held Mason Rudolph and a prolific Oklahoma State offense to it’s second lowest point total of the season. The Hokies rushed for 248 yards and out-gained the Cowboys 506 to 471, but still found a way to lose the game. It was pretty simply what happened. The Hokies were mistake prone, Oklahoma State …

Virginia took a positive step in 2017, but blowout bowl loss to Navy stings.

2017 was successful football season by Virginia, even with a 49-7 bowl loss to Navy. Here’s why… Getting embarrassed in a bowl game is still better than no bowl game at all. #UVA — Danny Neckel (@DNeckel19) December 28, 2017 When you haven’t been to a bowl game since 2011, and haven’t won more than …

After Bowl loss, Will Steve Addazio ever break the 7 win barrier at Boston College?

Boston College is not an easy place to coach football. They are in division with Clemson, Florida State and Louisville. That’s 2 national championship teams and 2 Heisman winners in the last 4 years. NC State and Wake Forest are solid, and on a given day Syracuse is capable of beating anyone they play. Just …

Florida State with a dominant bowl win will enter off-season with optimism.

There’s no way to sugar coat it, 2017 has a bad year for Florida State. 7-6 seasons don’t cut it in Tallahassee, but it certainly wasn’t the disaster it could have been. FSU doesn’t have to look far to see the trainwrecks at Florida and Tennessee, and know it could have been worse. Following the …

Duke’s finish – including a bowl win, makes them a team to watch for 2018.

Following a 4-8 2016, there were a little rumblings that Duke football had peaked with the 2013-2015 seasons. During that time Duke averaged 9 wins a year. 2017 was a big year for the Blue Devils to prove they weren’t slipping. Duke needed to prove 2016 was just an aberration, and that the Blue Devils …

This piece from Yahoo Finance tries to answer that question. For those that were concerned about the ACC Network in the cord cutting era… Disney paying for these TV assets is …
