When you win an ACC championship, ESPN waits for you to check your text messages. From the day Jimbo Fisher took over for the legendary Bobby Bowden, he had a plan to return Florida State to greatness on a regular basis last seen in the 1990s. On Saturday night, with Florida State hanging on against upset-minded Georgia Tech in the ACC Championship Game for a 20-15 win, Fisher and Florida State took that first giant step that was a couple of years in the making. Florida State running back James Wilder Jr. rushed for a pair of touchdowns in key moments on his way to earning ACC Championship Game MVP honors. Karlos Williams had the defensive play of the night with an interception on Georgia Tech’s Tevin Washington on Tech’s final offensive possession of the night to seal the victory for the Seminoles. It was the first interception of his career, and it could not have come at a better time. With the win Florida State will return to a BCS game for the first time since the 20...

Jimbo Fisher gets a cold ACC championship bath

It was  acold evening in Charlotte for the ACC championship game. Not so much for me and my northern blood traveling south for the day, but certainly for anyone from the deeper south than I. Like Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher, for instance. Moments after the final seconds ticked off the clock to wrap up Florida State’s first ACC championship since 2005, holding on to beat...

No. 13 Florida St.-Georgia Tech meet for ACC title

Florida State has no option but to stop the option - if the Seminoles want to win their 13th ACC title. Jimbo Fisher said Friday the key to the Seminoles winning another Atlantic Coast Conference championship and clinching an automatic bid to the Orange Bowl is shutting down Georgia Tech's triple option offense. The 13th-ranked Seminoles (10-2, 7-1 ACC) are two-touchdown favorites...

Georgia Tech ignores past, embraces opportunity

Georgia Tech football coach Paul Johnson is in no mood to discuss some of the realities surrounding his teams place in Saturdays ACC championship game. He doesnt want to hear that his club doesnt belong in the game or that its only there because North Carolina and Miami arent eligible. Dont remind him of his squads 6-6 record or that statistically it has almost zero chance of even...

Few believe Northern Illinois worthy of Orange

Northern Illinois went 12-1 this season. The Huskies won the Mid-American Conference. They deserve to go to a bowl game. Just not a Bowl Championship Series game. The truth is that many of us college football nuts love watching MAC games. They are fun, they are high-scoring and they are unpredictable. MACtion has taken on a life of its own, especially on Twitter. And the games provide...

Mark Stoops has perfect finale with FSU

CHARLOTTE, N.C. An Atlantic Coast Conference championship that was seven years in the making turned out to a be a nail-biter. And in what he admits is likely his final game on the Florida State sideline, Mark Stoops had his defense turn in a memorable performance to wrap up the programs first conference title since 2005. Safety Karlos Williams had a game-clinching interception...

Mark Stoops will not coach in FSU’s bowl game

Kentucky Sports Radio is reporting that ESPN is reporting that Mark Stoops will not coach in Florida State’s bowl game. Stoops just took over the Kentucky Head Coaching job so this move makes total sense. Making the move to the SEC from the ACC will be very difficult especially when you are working for the Kentucky Wildcats. ESPN reports Mark Stoops will not coach the Bowl Game...

Florida State and Georgia Tech for the ACC Title.

Hey there is an actual football game Saturday! The ACC Title game in Charlotte between Georgia Tech and Florida State. There’s still an Orange Bowl trip at stake, and with the Kent St. loss the likely opponent looks like Louisville. I’m sure the Orange Bowl, and John Swofford are rooting for Florida State to win tomorrow rather than have a 7-6 Georgia Tech team representing the...

Thoughts on FSU's ACC Title win Over Georgia Tech

First it was a heckuva effort by Georgia Tech. When they got down 21-3, it looked like there were going to get humiliated. In the 2nd half they played with a defensive effort and intensity that I haven’t seen all year. The Jackets went to an aggressive blitzing package that really threw the Seminoles off balance. Hint for Paul Johnson… You don’t have alot talent on defense...

Quick Thoughts on Florida State’s ACC Title win Over Georgia Tech.

This will be a short post tonight, but I wanted to put some thoughts down on what I saw tonight in Charlotte, NC. First it was a heckuva effort by Georgia Tech. When they got down 21-3, it looked like there were going to get humiliated. In the 2nd half they played with a defensive effort and intensity that I haven’t seen all year.
