  1. College Football Playoff selection committee will have its hands ...

    Heather Dinich

    There was little controversy to end the BCS era but don't expect that to be the norm as college football transitions to a playoff. It's rare that it will be as easy to pick the top two teams as it was this season, let alone the top four.

  4. ACC predictions: Week 2

    Heather Dinich

    It was a respectable Week 1, as I only missed two games -- Duke and NC State -- for an 8-2 record. I'm kicking myself for not going with my gut on the Blue Devils, and I will freely admit I had been drinking the Tom O'Brien Kool-Aid all summer. Much ...

  5. ACC upset watch: Week 2

    Heather Dinich

    I was shocked -- shocked I tell you -- that none of the teams on last week's Upset Watch fell. Usually there's at least one surprise in the ACC every week, but the conference pretty much stuck to the script, with Virginia Tech, Clemson and Maryland a...

  6. ACC's lunchtime links

    Heather Dinich

    Syracuse will make the leap in July, 2013. I'd be shocked if Pitt didn't follow in time. Somebody get me Frank Beamer's personal trainer. He's back down to his playing weight. Virginia Tech or Clemson? Decisions, decisions ... Don't underesti...

  9. ACC predictions: Week 2

    Heather Dinich

    It wasn't a stellar debut for the ACC in Week 1, nor were my picks anything to brag about. I went 7-4 in the opening week with erroneous picks for Boston College, Wake Forest, Duke and Miami. The first three, I still argue, should have won their resp...

  14. Discover Orange Bowl: 3 keys

    Heather Dinich

    Here are three keys for Virginia Tech in the Discover Orange Bowl against Stanford: 1. Stop Stanford's running game. That should be the first priority. The Cardinal has the No. 17 rushing offense in the country with an average of 211 yards per gam...

  16. Stanford's creative offense key to success

    Heather Dinich

    FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Hulking Stanford offensive guard James McGillicuddy isn't exactly easy to disguise, but that hasn't stopped the staff from trying to line him up incognito. McGillicuddy's position is as nondescript as his jersey number. He'...
