  1. Brissett, Wolfpack put early success to test

    David M. Hale

    The last time Florida State lost a game, Jacoby Brissett was on the winning side. This was in the waning days of Brissett's time at Florida, in November 2012, at a point when it was becoming obvious he'd never get his chance to be on the field and...

    David M. Hale

    Plenty of coaches around the ACC are sifting through some ugly numbers this week, but we'll start with one of the best performances of the weekend. * Florida State's Rashad Greene was a hero yet again Saturday night. His 74-yard touchdown grab wit...

  3. ACC morning links

    David M. Hale

    No surprise, but Dabo Swinney made it official Sunday: Deshaun Watson will start at quarterback for Clemson, writes The Post and Courier. Clemson fans obviously wish that decision had come a few days earlier, but it's hard to fault Swinney for sho...

  4. What we learned in the ACC: Week 4

    David M. Hale

    Well, that was a bad Saturday for the ACC. Bad losses, high-profile suspensions, a Group of 5 team hanging 70 on a supposed Coastal contender. Yeah, it might be another long year in the ACC, but the rough day did offer a few lessons. Clemson...

  5. By the numbers: Atlantic contenders?

    David M. Hale

    Two ACC Atlantic Division teams went on the road last week and thumped an overmatched opponent with impressive performances on both sides of the ball. The surprise, perhaps, is that those two teams were NC State and Syracuse. Why were those strong...

  6. Clemson's Watson proves a quick study

    David M. Hale

    His teammates called him "Rook" -- short for "rookie" -- back when Deshaun Watson was starting as a 14-year-old freshman at Gainesville High. The nickname stuck, but it was never an apt moniker. His first start was against the defending stat...

  7. ACC playoff watch: Week 4

    David M. Hale

    The roller coaster ride of perception for the ACC has already had its share of highs and lows, and this week figures to be about as big as any when it comes to setting the table for the College Football Playoff. So let's see where the conference stac...

  8. Sean Maguire steps into spotlight for FSU

    David M. Hale

    A year ago, Jameis Winston marched his offense onto the field in Death Valley, cracked a few jokes in the huddle to lighten the mood, then proceeded to dismantle the Clemson defense for 60 minutes straight. He threw for 444 yards and three touch...

  9. Georgia Tech D has something to prove

    David M. Hale

    The scenario facing Georgia Tech's defense this week isn't exactly ideal. Three wins are in the ledger, and that's the good news. But those first three were supposed to be the easy ones, and instead, the Yellow Jackets have had to sweat out each '...

  10. Early matchup has appeal for Clemson-FSU

    David M. Hale

    If Clemson has been busy cooking up a few new wrinkles for Florida State during the bye week, the trigger men on offense certainly aren't tipping their hand. Chad Morris loves Deshaun Watson, but he downplayed the freshman's role in Saturday's gam...

  11. ACC morning links: Pitt's passing game

    David M. Hale

    Pitt's off to a 3-0 start, and while some early struggles against FIU last week were enough to put a scare into the Panthers, there's no question they're now squarely in the mix for the Coastal Division. A win this week would give Pitt its first 4-0 ...

  12. ACC morning links: Kaaya's big step

    David M. Hale

    Miami knew there would be bumps in the road for true freshman quarterback Brad Kaaya, and so it wasn't entirely surprising when he started off the year looking like, well, a true freshman. But the upside for Kaaya was always obvious, and against Arka...

  13. Missed tackles plaguing NC State

    David M. Hale

    It's been two weeks of close games for NC State, but it's also been two wins. For a team that hadn't celebrated a victory since Sept. 28 of last year, that's progress. Still, there's no question the Wolfpack have work to do still, particularly on ...

  14. By the numbers: Heavy RB workloads

    David M. Hale

    Last month, we wrote a bit about the shift toward backfields-by-committee, noting that most coaches now prefer to have at least two tailbacks with complementary skill sets that can, ideally, lighten the load on one another. But look around the ACC...

  15. Q&A with ECU QB Shane Carden

    David M. Hale

    Virginia Tech is fresh off its biggest win in years, but the test this week remains tough. East Carolina is headed to Blacksburg, Virginia. Just last year, the Pirates put a scare into the Hokies before falling 15-10, but ECU quarterback Shane Carden...

  16. ACC morning links: Tech's favorite targets

    David M. Hale

    Virginia Tech's tight ends have made a big difference for the Hokies' offense so far this season, writes The Roanoke Times. Bucky Hodges and Ryan Malleck have been excellent, and even without Kalvin Cline, the only tight end to catch a pass for th...
