Miami Hurricanes 2015 Preview and Prediction

By Athlon Sports, 1 year 6 months ago
Al Golden has been at Miami four seasons and has yet to elevate the Hurricanes back to the ACC's elite. He has loads of talent — the Canes had seven players drafted in April — but hasn't been able to win a division crown. The offense has been solid every year Golden has been in Coral Gables. However, his defenses have been a major liability. With a star...

By Steven Lassan, 1 year 6 months ago

Virginia Tech Hokies 2015 Preview and Prediction

By Athlon Sports, 1 year 6 months ago
Virginia Tech is at a crossroads of sorts. The Hokies went to the ACC championship game six times in their first eight seasons in the league. Since then, Virginia Tech is 12-12 in the league. A 6-6 season saved the Hokies from missing the postseason for the first time since 1992. A bowl win preserved a streak of 22 consecutive winning seasons. The streaks look good in the media guide, but...

Louisville Cardinals 2015 Preview and Prediction

By Athlon Sports, 1 year 6 months ago
Louisville has had more high-profile seasons than 2014, but the Cardinals deserve credit for a successful first season in the ACC. Louisville moved into a tougher conference and had a revolving door at quarterback, yet still found a way to win nine games, including a road trip to Notre Dame. The Cards did this with a top-10 defense and 10 NFL draft picks. Louisville is in Year 2 under Bobby...

NC State Wolfpack 2015 Preview and Prediction

By Athlon Sports, 1 year 6 months ago
NC State flashed its potential in a wild 56-41 loss to Florida State on Sept. 27. The Wolfpack just had to wait until November to deliver on it. NC State was one of the first teams of 2014 to give FSU a scare last season, leading the Seminoles until the final 3:24 of the third quarter. NC State struggled after that game, losing four in a row at one point. After regrouping in the final five games...

Don't listen to Nick Saban, the Bowl System is just fine

By Braden Gall, 1 year 6 months ago
Don’t buy it. Don’t buy what Bill Hancock is selling. Don’t buy what the conference commissioners are selling. Certainly, don’t buy what Nick Saban is selling. The Alabama Crimson Tide head coach has built up more than enough equity during his amazing career to have intelligent and respected opinions about his game. But his latest comments about the...

SEC, ACC have no right to hate Big Ten for Satellite Camps

By Braden Gall, 1 year 6 months ago
The SEC has only itself to blame. You too, ACC. Coaches (and fans) from both leagues have some serious diaper rash when it comes to "satellite camps." But the SEC and ACC power brokers are directing their anger in the wrong direction. They have no right to get angry at the Big Ten or Urban Meyer or James Franklin. Penn State's Franklin immediately began the Big Ten...
