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.

No seniors on the FSU D? No problem

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

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Florida State had the luxury a season ago of playing not only with future NFL draft picks all over its defense, but with senior leaders at each level. Plenty of talent remains as the Seminoles look ahead to defending their national championship. But there is a major void in senior leadership. While the offense is full of seniors, the defense is not. There are no seniors projected to start on defense in 2014. Only two are projected for the two-deep.

Strong man Hickey anchors Syracuse line

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

The strongest man on the Syracuse roster has spent the winter and spring getting, well, stronger. He had to. Left tackle Sean Hickey went through the NFL draft evaluation process, eventually opting to return to school for his senior season after being graded anywhere from a third-to-fifth round selection. One of the biggest reasons he came back was to develop the strength in his lower body, which he hopes improves his draft grade. During winter conditioning, Hickey worked his legs until he could barely walk with a combination of strength training and body building exercises.

FSU loses money on title game

April 21st, 2014 · No Comments · ACC Football News

Florida State won its third national championship in Pasadena, Calif., in January, but the appearance in the final BCS title game also cost the university nearly a half-million dollars. Florida State reported expenses of $2,820,613 — nearly half of which came from transportation costs — and that exceeded the revenue generated from its BCS appearance by a total of $481,213. The loss does not come as a surprise for Florida State. Athletic director Stan Wilcox said in February that playing on the West Coast increased travel expenses and hindered ticket sales, making it nearly impossible to turn a profit on the endeavor.
