Obligatory Kennedy Meeks Windmill Dunk Video

This comes via Kennedy Meeks' Instragram and delivers visual evidence of both Meeks' new-found dunking ability and his chiseled frame. I am guessing if ESPN did a top 50 list of strength and conditioning coaches in college basketball Jonas Sahratian would be at the top of the list. Joe Giglio of the News and Observer raises an interesting point on preseason ACC predictions...

Thoughts on the 2014 Pre-Season All-ACC Football Team

The pre-season All-ACC Team for the 2014 was released a couple of days ago. Here are my thoughts on how the media voted. I like Jamison Crowder at WR. He was in my ACC Top 5 WR list, but  I may have put Tyler Boyd of Pittsburgh ahead of him. Another though is that other than Jameis Winston and Kendall Fuller and a handful of Juniors, the All-ACC team was largely a Senior driven...
