ACC teleconference notebook

April 23rd, 2014 · No Comments · ACC Football News

The ACC coaches participated in a teleconference Wednesday to wrap up spring practices, as Virginia Tech and Wake Forest will close out spring in the ACC this weekend with their respective spring games. Here are a few quick highlights from the call: Eight is enough As the ACC prepares to debate an eight- or nine-game league schedule at its spring meetings next month in Amelia Island, Fla., the coaches “lean heavily toward eight” conference games, according to Duke coach David Cutcliffe, who is chair of the ACC coaches committee.

What about players in Clemson complaint?

April 23rd, 2014 · No Comments · ACC Football News

We have heard one complaint about Dabo Swinney and the way religion is “entangled” with the football program. One singular complaint. Not from a current player or a former player. Not from a current coach or a former coach. Just one, which came from a separation of church and state watchdog group based in Wisconsin, some 880 miles from Clemson. The Freedom From Religion Foundation leveled charges against Swinney based not on eyewitness accounts of “unconstitutional behavior” but on public records requests that detailed Bible days, Fellowship of Christian Athletes breakfasts, team devotionals and the hiring of the team chaplain.

ACC’s lunchtime links

April 23rd, 2014 · No Comments · ACC Football News

Your time-waster of the day: An oral history of “Mystery Science Theater 3000.” One of the best stories on Clemson’s roster is looking to offer more inspiration on the field this year, writes Tiger Net. There’s barely enough depth to fill out two rosters at Wake Forest, but Dave Clawson says the spring game will proceed as usual, writes the Winston-Salem Journal. Reports suggest Boston College could get a boost via transfer from a familiar face, writes BC Interruption.

Dabo Swinney still chasing Steve Spurrier

April 23rd, 2014 · No Comments · ACC Football News

CLEMSON, S.C. -- By just about any standard, it has been a defining run for Dabo Swinney and Clemson. The Tigers have won 32 games over the last three seasons, winning an ACC championship and a BCS bowl game and recording a pair of top-10 finishes in the polls along the way. Not since 1990 had Clemson won 10 games in a season, but the Tigers have reached that plateau each of the last three seasons, including 11 wins each of the last two. With nine wins in 2014, this senior class could become the winningest class in school history.

Statement from Dabo Swinney on his faith

April 23rd, 2014 · No Comments · ACC Football News

Earlier this month, the Freedom From Religion Foundation lodged a letter of complaint to Clemson, charging coach Dabo Swinney and his staff with "unconstitutional behavior" at the public university. Swinney released the following statement on Wednesday morning regarding his faith: "Over the past week or two, there has been a lot of discussion of my faith. We have three rules in our program that everybody must follow: (1) players must go to class, (2) they must give a good effort and (3) they must be good citizens.

WR Davis takes center stage in UNC offense

April 23rd, 2014 · No Comments · ACC Football News

There are differences between the two quarterbacks vying for the starting job at North Carolina, receiver Quinshad Davis said. With Marquise Williams, there’s a familiarity between passer and receiver that stemmed from extensive playing time together throughout last season. When Mitch Trubisky takes over the first-team offense, there’s a bit more of a learning curve, but the ball arrives with ample zip and usually in just the right spot.

Deacs’ D-line lacks depth, experience

April 22nd, 2014 · No Comments · ACC Football News

Wake Forest defensive coordinator Mike Elko said a total of nine defensive linemen were available for the Deacs’ scrimmage on Friday. Total. Nobody sidelined with an injury. “That’s what we’ve got,” Elko said. “Obviously the sell in recruiting around here is, ‘If you want to play early, come play D-line at Wake.’” The situation didn’t improve on Tuesday, when the school confirmed that sophomore backup lineman James Looney will transfer.

Michael Dyer still behind on depth chart

April 22nd, 2014 · No Comments · ACC Football News

It seems like an eternity ago that running back Michael Dyer was named the offensive MVP of Auburn’s 2010 BCS national championship. While time has not diminished Dyer’s accomplishments -- 2,335 yards and 15 touchdowns during his two seasons at Auburn is still remarkable -- it has certainly diminished his place in the spotlight. That might not change anytime soon at Louisville. Dyer, whose long road to Louisville and the baggage he carried there with him has been well-documented, is finally healthy and he finished the spring strong, but his best days could be behind him.
