  3. Planning for success: Clemson

    David M. Hale

    At the outset of the season, Robert Smith joked that he felt a bit like the old man in a room full of rookies in Clemson's secondary, but that was nearly two months ago. The unit has done a lot of growing up since then. It's partially Smith's infl...

  5. ACC bowl projections: Week 8

    David M. Hale

    David M. Hale

    If the 1993 matchup between Florida State and Notre Dame was the game of the century, Saturday night's contest certainly proved to be a worthy successor. The Seminoles held off a final drive from the Irish and stopped one last fourth-down heave from ...

  8. Virginia's blueprint finally coming together

    David M. Hale

  13. ACC midseason overview

    David M. Hale

    It's the midpoint for the ACC, and in a lot of ways, things aren't too much different from a year ago. Florida State is the league's lone hope for the playoff, and while the Seminoles are riding high at 6-0, plenty of questions remain both on and ...

  14. Planning for success: Duke

    David M. Hale

    It's not a label most quarterbacks enjoy, and for Anthony Boone, the "game manager" tag is one that probably gets tossed about too easily. He did, after all, go toe-to-toe with Johnny Manziel in last year's bowl game, and he's carried the Blue Devils...
