At schools like Florida State and Clemson, four- and five-star recruits waltz onto campus every year. This year’s superstar-in-waiting is competing with last year’s hotshot, who has spent a full year in the system and in the strength and conditioning program. It gives those with multiple years on campus the upper hand in the quest for playing time. But the two ACC powers had a...

ACC 2015 Preseason Quarterback Rankings

By Steven Lassan, 2 weeks 5 days ago
The ACC has a strong case as college football’s best conference for overall quarterback play in 2015. This league features plenty of proven options, rising stars and passers poised for a breakthrough year. In a 14-team conference, it’s rare to see few teams with concerns under center, but the ACC is relatively stable at quarterback in 2015. Clemson’s Deshaun Watson leads...

ACC Will Be the League Left Out of College Football Playoff

By Braden Gall, 3 weeks 2 days ago
Everyone doesn’t deserve a trophy. College football isn’t little league baseball and not everyone should be invited to the College Football Playoff party. The Big 12 found out the hard way last year what that feels like and has been crowing about it and attempting to fix it all offseason. With all due respect to former colleague Mike Leach, exclusivity is a good thing.

There have been 78 Heisman Trophies given out to 77 different players and only three times has the award gone to an ACC representative. On each of those occasions, a Florida State quarterback was the recipient — Charlie Ward in 1993, Chris Weinke in 2000, and Jameis Winston in 2013. As a result, many analysts may be looking elsewhere for 2015 Heisman contenders. But for quite some...

Rivalry games are a huge part of college football, but recent conference realignment has changed the outlook for some of these annual matchups. Missouri-Kansas and Texas-Texas A&M aren’t scheduled to play anytime soon, and Pittsburgh-West Virginia – known as the Backyard Brawl – is also in hiatus. The Backyard Brawl is among the best rivalries in college football, but...

Picture Day 2015: ACC Coaches Captioned

By Athlon Sports, 1 month 1 week ago
It was picture day at ACC Media Days 2015 on Tuesday. There is just something hilarious about this photo of 14 grown adult men in golf shirts posing together. Some look happy, some look angry, some look like they have no idea what they're doing posing for a class photo. So here are a few captions. (Feel free to send your ideas to @AthlonSports.) First row (left to right): ...
