SEC Countdown: No. 7 Florida

Will Muschamp's tenure in Gainesville has been a see-saw ride. After taking over for two-time national title winner Urban Meyer in December 2010, the long-time defensive coordinator could not immediately duplicate his predecessor's success, going 7-6 with the Gators' first losing record in conference since 1986. Everything -- well, almost everything -- changed in 2012...

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...

2014 poised to be Year of the Running Back in SEC

HOOVER, Ala. -- Mark Richt wishes the best for Aaron Murray and "We wish his brother well on 'The Bachelorette,' by the way," he quipped. It was a moment of levity from the Georgia coach in dealing with the turnover at the position in the SEC.

Star-laden Rebels embracing 'window' talk of winning SEC West

HOOVER, Ala. -- Hugh Freeze's daughter, Ragan, might disagree with the following rhetorical question, but it still begs asking: Why can't Ole Miss win the SEC West this season?

Expectations on Fournette nearing unrealistic levels

HOOVER, Ala. -- Leonard Fournette isn't going to have the chance to sneak up on the college football world. He's not going to slowly emerge, or explode, unexpectedly, onto the scene. LSU's freshman running back hasn't carried the ball once in a game. Heck, he hasn't even gone through a full college practice session yet. But the hype coming from Baton Rouge, La...

Maty Football? Missouri's Mauk steps confidently into starting role

HOOVER, Ala. -- The Mauks would often drive through the night from their home in northwest Ohio, after Mike had finished coaching Kenton High School's football team, to get to Columbia, Mo., or another campus in SEC land. Those journeys will get much shorter this fall. Mauk, who will soon be enshrined in the Ohio Football Coaches Hall of Fame, took over at Glendale High School...

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 to forge 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 for many schools, they're going to need some help from surrounding players on offense. COASTAL DIVISION Duke: Max McCaffrey...

ACC Countdown: No. 9 Georgia Tech

For seemingly decades in the ACC, even before the arrival of Paul Johnson and his flexbone option offense, Georgia Tech has been a model of consistency. The program has been to 17 straight bowl games, and the teams have ranged from mediocre -- barely reaching that requisite .500 mark -- to very good (as many as 10 wins). As such, the Jackets have never been awful, and that's...

Three Cuts: Long ball keeps Braves from 10th-straight win

ATLANTA -- The chance for the Atlanta Braves to win 10 games in a row, and complete a perfect homestand, fell by the wayside Sunday. Or more appropriately, those chances caromed off the left-field foul pole, as the Arizona Diamondbacks took the final game of the series, 3-1 on Sunday. Here are three observations from the game: 1.
