Ranking the ACC's Best and Worst Logos in 2014

By Athlon Sports, 1 month 1 week ago
Official school logos have been and will always be the simplest and most important way for a college program to classify and separate itself from its peers. Some change dramatically over time while others are literally set in stone for decades. Some are edgy, exciting and extremely busy while others are clean, classic and simple.  Every college football program in the nation has an...

ACC Coaches Talk Anonymously About Conference Foes for 2014

By Athlon Sports, 1 month 2 weeks ago
It's not easy getting college football coaches to honestly comment on another coach, player or team.

NC State Football 2014 Schedule Analysis

By Braden Gall, 2 months 3 weeks ago
Things didn't go as planned in Dave Doeren's first season in Raleigh.  The Wolfpack didn't win a game in the ACC and lost four times to programs inside the state of North Carolina (Duke, Wake Forest, North Carolina and East Carolina). So why would a program that didn't win a game a year ago and essentially finished fifth in the state have so much optimism heading into...

By David Fox, 3 months 1 week ago

Parity and sportsmanship dictate that teams will let up before hitting the century mark. That's not for lack of trying. Seventy-point routs weren't uncommon in 2013. With a backup quarterback, Ohio State...
