    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.

  8. 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 ...

    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...

  16. Halftime: Virginia Tech 14, Duke 7

    Heather Dinich

    It should come as no surprise that Duke is hanging around. That's what the Blue Devils do. It seems like they can play for a half with almost anyone (see: Stanford), but sustaining it for four quarters is a different story. A porous defense and lack ...
