  • Conference USA or CAA? Either option could prove perilous for ODU

    Conference USA or CAA? Either option could prove perilous for ODU
    Old Dominion, through no fault of its own, is in a jam, and don't let anyone con you otherwise. The Monarchs can remain in a conference many believe is on life-support, or join a league of scattered wannabes that requires a premature upgrade to the...
  • Absent a playoff, Virginia Tech, others would benefit from reforming bowl system

    Absent a playoff, Virginia Tech, others would benefit from reforming bowl system
    Maddening as college football's postseason is, fairness dictates one concession: It's better than it used to be. Time was when bowls finalized matchups in mid-November. Time was when the champions of the Big Ten, Pacific 12, Big 12 and Southeastern...
  • Big East troubles rekindle Notre Dame-to-ACC chatter

    Big East troubles rekindle Notre Dame-to-ACC chatter
    Just when you thought it was safe to break out the sunscreen, shag bag and patio furniture. Just as you finalized plans to vacation at the beach, ballpark or fishing hole. Along comes conference realignment chatter. Again. So much for a relaxing spring...
  • History with Sugar Bowl leads to Virginia Tech's BCS at-large bid and game against Michigan

    History with Sugar Bowl leads to Virginia Tech's BCS at-large bid and game against Michigan
    When Virginia Tech defeated Texas in the 1995 Sugar Bowl, Frank Beamer cautioned Hokies faithful not to expect similar success every year. "I think we've got a chance to be a top program year in and year out," he said. "But every year certainly isn't...
  • Jontel Evans a pest as usual as Virginia survives Miami in ACC opener

    Jontel Evans a pest as usual as Virginia survives Miami in ACC opener
    Jontel Evans' defensive aim is blessedly simple: Be a pest. Hedges and switches? Slides and double-teams? Evans leaves the nuances to his coach, Tony Bennett. The combination is blending perfectly this season, never more so than Saturday night, when...
  • And your voter from Virginia on the AP football poll is .....

    And your voter from Virginia on the AP football poll is .....
    Consider me Virginia's designated piņata, DP for short, this college football season. Translation: I'm the state's voter on the Associated Press' top 25. The AP was desperate enough to ask, and I was gullible enough to accept, knowing full well how...
  • Once implausible, full ACC membership for Notre Dame seems possible

    Once implausible, full ACC membership for Notre Dame seems possible
    Notre Dame and the ACC talked in 2003, and their discussions ended amicably and predictably — the school passed on all-sports membership in the name of its storied football independence. Eight years later, in the wake of radical conference...
  • Notre Dame likely to improve ACC's bowl lineup

    Notre Dame likely to improve ACC's bowl lineup
    Initial reactions to Notre Dame's partial ACC membership were provincial, predictable and understandable. Could the Fighting Irish affect my favorite team's bowl destination? Even worse, could they cost my school a bowl bid? And just how much of the ACC'...
  • Florida State-Clemson just the ticket for ACC football

    Florida State-Clemson just the ticket for ACC football
    Tallahassee television station WCTV reported Wednesday that a Florida State student was arrested for printing and selling counterfeit tickets to Saturday's football game between the No. 4 Seminoles and No. 10 Clemson. Legal issues notwithstanding, this...
  • Offensive coordinator Brian Scott's affinity for run-and-shoot produces air raid at ODU

    Offensive coordinator Brian Scott's affinity for run-and-shoot produces air raid at ODU
    Brian Scott coordinates the Football Championship Subdivision's most prolific offense, and Saturday his Old Dominion air raid left fans, statisticians and New Hampshire's defense breathless. Monarchs 64, Wildcats 61. But like a rapper who chills with...

  • One path that could get Florida State to the national title game

     
    OK, first of all, I have to say that I can't believe I'm blogging this right now. (I can think of better ways to have spent part of my morning … and, mind you, this is not a prediction. Take that for what it's worth. We're only pointing some...
