  4. ACC bowl projections: Week 4

    David Hale

    Florida State's win without its Heisman-winning quarterback helped solidify that the Seminoles are playoff-bound. Beyond that, Week 4 only served to further muddy the waters. Clemson may still be the second-best team in the conference, but the Tigers...

  6. ACC bowl projections: Week 3

    David Hale

  10. ACC links: Hokies start from scratch

    David Hale

    Here's how crazy the ACC Coastal Division is: Virginia Tech and Miami have as good a chance as anyone to win the division, and both teams will open the season with starting quarterbacks who weren't on campus during spring practice. Virginia Tech a...

  11. Jamison Crowder aims to finish with bang

    David Hale

    Jamison Crowder is 5-foot-9, and though he has accumulated all types of impressive numbers in his career, it is that stat that seems to define him the most. He is small. He gets it. Look around the league at bigger receivers, and he expects to fly...

  12. Tight ends key for Hokies' passing game

    David Hale

  15. ACC lunch links: Bulk on the O-line

    David Hale

    It was an ugly year for Pitt's offensive line in 2013 by virtually any measure. No line in the ACC allowed more sacks than the 43 coughed up by the Panthers. The 3.62 yards per rush for Pitt's ground game ranked 12th in the conference, despite ...
