  3. 'Weak' 13 punctuates ugly season for ACC

    Heather Dinich

    So it's come to this in the ACC: If Georgia Tech doesn't beat No. 13 Florida State in the Dr Pepper ACC championship game on Saturday, it will drop to 6-7 and have to apply to the NCAA for a waiver just to play in a bowl game. It's BCS or bust for...

  4. ACC predictions: Week 7

    Heather Dinich

    Another week, another one nobody saw coming. NC State's win over Florida State was an epic upset and an instant classic. It was also another black mark on my record. I finished 5-2 last week for an overall record of 44-11 (80 percent). If I drop belo...

  5. ACC bowl projections: Week 1

    Heather Dinich

    Last season, the Sugar Bowl made this prediction impossible. If you said the Hokies would go to the Sugar Bowl last year AND Clemson would play in the Orange Bowl, drop what you're doing and go to Vegas. Now. The beauty of college football is i...

  8. Clemson drops to No. 11 in BCS standings

    Heather Dinich

    In a span of four quarters, Clemson went from a national title contender to an afterthought in the BCS standings. With the Tigers' drop from No. 5 to No. 11 this week, no longer does the ACC have a top 10 team. No longer does the ACC have a realistic...

  11. ACC status quo in conference rankings

    Heather Dinich

    Thanks in large part to four ranked teams staying ranked, the ACC didn't drop in the latest Conference Power Rankings from ESPN's Stats & Info crew. It did in my book, though. The ACC is 1-3 against the Big East after NC State's loss to Cin...

    Heather Dinich

    More news expected out of Miami soon, and I'm not talking Irene ... It sounds like Miami is on the brink of declaring players ineligible. Or should Miami just drop the whole thing and call it quits? Frank Beamer needed stitches after a little...

  15. Hokies in my Top 25 this week

    Heather Dinich

    Yeah, yeah, I know. Virginia Tech lost to an FCS program. I didn't forget it, and neither will the Hokies or a lot of fans. But as teams drop out (Miami), it's an opportunity for other programs to jump in. And in searching for another team this week,...

  16. Miami has the drops

    Heather Dinich

    MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. -- At some point, the players on the receiving end have to help Jacory Harris out. Back-to-back drops by Graig Cooper and Leonard Hankerson turned a potential touchdown drive into a field goal. The Canes were on FSU's 18-yard line...
