Virginia Tech’s James Johnson tries to keep his head held high

Virginia Tech Coach James Johnson has found a good night’s sleep to be almost as elusive as a win these days. When he makes it to bed, he just tosses and turns. Often, he can only manage to doze off for an hour at a time, watching television and game film to fill the void insomnia has brought on. Mostly, though, that just leaves him more frustrated — at another last-place finish...

Zone baffled Hokies in 72-52 loss to No. 2 Orange

One day after saying he could be without three of his main players when Virginia Tech played No. 2 Syracuse, Hokies coach James Johnson got good news when all three became available. Adam Smith returned after missing two games and three of the last five with a strained left calf, and C.J. Barksdale and Marshall Wood both played a day after Johnson said he thought they were questionable...

ACC Morning Linkfest 1/7 with Game Sim Predictions

Congrats to FSU, who won the National Championship in dramatic fashion over Auburn.  It was a huge win for the Seminoles, but equally big for the ACC.   Read more about FSU's win over at SB Nation.  Pitt moved to 2-0 last night with a blowout 79-59 win over Maryland.   It was the kind of win for Pitt that should open some eyes, and cause Maryland fans to scratch their heads...

ACC Morning Linkfest 1/20 with Game Sim Predictions

Not a lot of time this morning, so check out the links, highlights, and more below.  Quick thoughts on yesterday.  Virginia and UNC have to be happy with their performances.  Its no surprise that the Heels have been up and down this season with such a young team.  But its games like yesterday's that allow a team to see what it takes to play well.  For Maryland, it was too...

ACC Morning Linkfest 1/10 with Game Sim Predictions

It's going to be one of those seasons in the ACC.  The league is going to claw each other to death and the majority of what's left will be tossed to the NIT or out of postseason play altogether.  On twitter yesterday, I had someone question Game Sim's prediction of Maryland by 2 in the FSU/Maryland game saying it was too close.  Guess not.  I had another fan asking...

ACC Morning Linkfest 1/1 with Game Sim Predictions

Happy New Year to everyone, just a quick post today after a late night last night.  BC and NC State took care of business on the basketball court yesterday, as expected.  The real news was on the gridiron though as Georgia Tech and Clemson pulled off victories confirming the ACC will at least split their 6 bowl games.  Clemson's win over LSU was a game that ACC football...

ACC Morning Linkfest 12/28 with Game Sim Predictions

Well that was a tough opening game of bowl play for the ACC.  Tied at 34 in the final 2 minutes Duke had the ball inside Cincinnati's 10 yard line with hopes they would get their first bowl win since 1961.  Duke let that opportunity (and ball) slip through their fingertips fumbling for the second time in the game at the goal line.  To Cincinnati's credit, they made Duke...

Finally, its bowl season for ACC teams as Duke takes on Cincinnati tonight in the Belk Bowl.  Let's take a quick look to see what Game Sim thinks will happen tonight. Cincinnati vs Duke - First bowl game for Duke in years should have the Blue Devils charged up to play.  Unfortunately Game Sim has Cincinnati beating Duke 43-31.  Duke won just 17% of all simulations.  Sim...

Its been a few days since I've posted a Morning Linkfest, so as a lot of people return to work today its only right that the Linkfest returns as well.  Last night, Miami was in action in the consolation game of the  Diamond Head Classic and dropped an overtime game to Indiana State.  Check out my recap of Miami's loss here.  Carlton Tudor has an interesting piece in...

On Wednesday night, UNC took another black eye (can you have 3?) on the season as they lost to Texas 85-67.  You can read the full recap of the game here.  The Heels have one non-conference game left against a solid opponent, UNLV.  The thought is that if the Heels can't win that one their NCAA tournament resume may leave something to be desired.

Hokies’ Loss Will Show What Team’s Made Of

Hokies’ Loss Will Show What Team’s Made OfAfter a 1-2 stretch following the Hokies’ spectacular 7-0 start, the honeymoon period in the James Johnson era seems to be over. While it was thrilling while it lasted, and probably earned a lot of goodwill from a fan base that might have been indifferent towards this team otherwise, it’s probably for the best. Now that they’ve...
