Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets 2017 Spring Football Preview

By Jon Kinne, 2 months 15 min ago
On the evening of Nov. 5, following a loss to North Carolina, Georgia Tech stood at 5-4. While it was an improvement on the disaster that was the 2015 season, it was not where the Yellow Jackets had hoped to be.   But the next week, Paul Johnson’s crew beat then-No. 18 Virginia Tech on the road, sparking a four-game winning streak that included victories over archrival Georgia and a...

Virginia Tech Hokies 2017 Spring Football Preview

By Jon Kinne, 2 months 3 days ago
The 2016 Virginia Tech football season had its ups and downs. It started slowly with a sluggish effort against Liberty followed by the turnover-fest in a loss to Tennessee at Bristol Motor Speedway. There was the huge win at North Carolina that gave the Hokies control of the Coastal Division and the dismal loss to Syracuse the next week. There also was the setback at home to a Georgia Tech team...

By Antwan Staley, 2 months 5 days ago
Mark Richt’s first season at the University of Miami went probably better than most expected. The Hurricanes finished the season 9-4 and there’s a lot of optimism coming into spring practice, which begins on March 21.   Although there will not be a spring game for fans to observe how much the team has improved, they’re still some questions Hurricanes fans have. As Miami...

Syracuse Orange 2017 Spring Football Preview

By Adam Kurkjian, 2 months 6 days ago
In a way, the loss to Pittsburgh on Nov. 26 perfectly summed up Dino Babers' first season as the Syracuse head coach. When the Orange fell to the Panthers, 76-61, to conclude a 4-8 year, it contained some of 2016's ups and downs. Yes, like many of the Orange games, the offense made impressive strides, as 61 points is nothing to be ashamed about. But, also like a lot of Syracuse games in...

Louisville Cardinals 2017 Spring Football Preview

By Adam Kurkjian, 2 months 6 days ago
For a good portion of 2016, Louisville seemed well on its way to, if not making the College Football Playoff, then a major bowl. But things got away from head coach Bobby Petrino and the Cardinals, as losses to Houston and Kentucky to end the regular season led to a 29-9 defeat at the hands of LSU in the Citrus Bowl. In that game, even Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Lamar Jackson struggled,...

Pittsburgh Panthers 2017 Spring Football Preview

By Jon Kinne, 2 months 1 week ago
This will be Pat Narduzzi’s third spring practice as the head coach at Pittsburgh. The former Michigan State assistant has brought stability to a program that needed it in the worst way. But Narduzzi knows that his job is far from done. He loses several important pieces from last year’s team and has not had the personnel on defense to make his scheme truly effective. This spring will...

Boston College Eagles 2017 Spring Football Preview

By Adam Kurkjian, 2 months 1 week ago
Keep the momentum going.   That will be the goal for Boston College as it opens spring practice on March 15. The Eagles won their final three games of the 2016 season to finish 7-6 after head coach Steve Addazio appeared to be on the hottest of seats following blowout losses to Louisville and Florida State. But things have cooled in that regard since then, and now the Eagles look primed...

5 Reasons Why the North Carolina Tar Heels Will Win it All in 2017

By Rob McVey, 2 months 1 week ago
The departures of Marcus Paige and Brice Johnson led many to believe that North Carolina would take a step backwards in 2016-17. Fortunately, that has not been the case. The Tar Heels won their second consecutive outright ACC regular season championship, and once again find themselves well positioned as a No. 1 seed in the 2017 NCAA Tournament.   The stage is set for the Tar Heels...

ACC 2017 Spring Football Preview and Power Rankings

By Steven Lassan, 2 months 2 weeks ago
The ACC finished 2016 on a high note and the momentum for this league should carry into 2017. Clemson is the reigning national champions, and even though coach Dabo Swinney has plenty of holes to fill this spring, the Tigers should be a threat to make the CFB Playoff. Florida State is the early favorite in the Atlantic Division, and coach Jimbo Fisher’s team should get an early look...
