And generally get out of the echo chamber. So, I want to thank Pierson of TheKeyPlay for reaching out to me for a pre-season Q&A exchange. I get to unload a little on their site. Wait, that came out...

Hokies, Tar Heels trying to avoid 0-2 ACC starts

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) Neither Virginia Tech nor North Carolina can afford many more losses in a cloudy Atlantic Coast Conference divisional race.

ACC Countdown: No. 7 Virginia Tech

Virginia Tech went 8-5 a year ago (5-3 in ACC play), decent by Coastal Division standards but not enough to win the division after Duke took the head-to-head battle in Blacksburg -- a sentence that would have been unfathomable as recently as two years ago. The Hokies start fresh on offense without three-year starter at quarterback, Logan Thomas, and return a lot of pieces from...

ACC Breakout Players: Offense

Every year, a player who's been good -- but not great -- or perhaps one the public has barely heard of comes out of nowhere and has a great season. There are a lot of candidates in the ACC on both sides of the ball, but with brand-new quarterbacks at the helm at a lot of schools, they're going to need some help from the players around them on offense.
