By Jon Kinne, 4 weeks 3 hours ago
The debate has raged in college football circles this offseason. Has the ACC eclipsed the SEC as the dominant conference in the sport?   Perhaps a clearer answer may emerge this season as ACC and SEC foes square off nine times this fall.

By Athlon Sports, 4 weeks 4 hours ago
Every fan has experienced it. Your team has the ball in scoring position. It’s a big moment. And before you can say, “Run the dang ball!” your quarterback is cocking back to lob the football toward the back corner of the end zone. It lands two yards out of bounds, safely out of reach of the nearest offensive and defensive players. You fill with rage. You scream obscenities at...

Earlier this week during the ACC Football Kickoff event in Charlotte, the Miami Hurricanes were declared the favorites to win the Coastal Division this fall.

By Athlon Sports, 1 month 3 days ago
Congratulations, WakeyLeaks. Wake Forest’s game-plan breach from a highly unlikely source — radio analyst and former assistant coach Tommy Elrod — managed to make already-paranoid college football coaches even more paranoid.   That is no small achievement.   “You don’t have nearly enough time [to talk] about why college football coaches are so paranoid...

By Steven Lassan, 1 month 5 days ago
The ACC is losing a good bit of star power from the running back ranks from last year’s group. Florida State’s Dalvin Cook, Pitt’s James Conner and Clemson’s Wayne Gallman decided to leave early for the NFL, while NC State’s Matt Dayes and Virginia’s Taquan Mizzell expired their eligibility. The departure of last year’s top backs leaves just one player...

Miami's Sophomore Linebackers Uphold a Formidable Tradition at the Position

By Athlon Sports, 1 month 6 days ago
The coordinates were constantly shifting, but the lateral boundaries always stretched from one sideline to the other. In Miami’s Orange Bowl nearly three decades years ago, Micheal Barrow, Darrin Smith and Jessie Armstead roamed an area they called the Bermuda Triangle.   “We came up with it, because once you went into the three of us, you disappeared,” Barrow says....

ACC's Top Coordinator Hires for 2017

By Steven Lassan, 1 month 1 week ago
The ACC’s coordinator carousel was relatively light on changes for the 2017 season. Five of the league’s 14 teams had some sort of switch in title or coordinator calling the plays. Louisville was the only team to make a change on both sides of the ball, as veteran offensive line coach Mike Summers was named co-offensive coordinator, and Peter Sirmon replaces Todd Grantham as the...

By Athlon Sports, 1 month 1 week ago
In 2012, the SEC’s perceived dominance over the rest of college football was an unquestioned fact of life in the sport. Five years later, the conference with the most money, most fertile recruiting base and most passionate following looks like a shadow of its best self, reduced to Alabama and the 13 Dwarves. What the heck happened?   There are enough different answers to that to...
