The 'Local Flair' Has Returned To Louisville Basketball

The following column appears in this week's edition of The Voice-Tribune For the bulk of my adolescence, nearly every adult conversation about Louisville basketball that I listened in on was centered around what was wrong with the program and what could be done to get it back to where it had been in the 1980s. While the number of discussions were abundant, their focal points...

UNC Announces Program to Allow Former Athletes to Finish Degree

My understanding is this is not the first such program in the country. Indiana apparently announced something similar earlier this year. Still, it is a move in the right direction and a direct response to someone like Rashad McCants who has complained he didn't receive a proper education. From UNC's release: For former student-athletes who withdrew from the University in...

Clemson Football Preview

Coming off one of the best seasons in school history, including an Orange Bowl win over Ohio State, Clemson feels like they have turned the corner with their program. While it may be difficult to replicate an 11 win season after losing Tajh Boyd, Sammy Watkins, Martavis Bryant, and others, there is still enough talent to challenge for a spot in a major bowl game. Major overhauls...

Notre Dame: Year One with the ACC Football Agreement

Notre Dame begins an unique arrangement with the ACC this year. You may not remember too well but we used to talk about the threat to Notre Dame's independence and conference upheaval all the time.

Fedora Meets the Media at ACC Kickoff

Larry Fedora took his turn talking to the media at ACC Kickoff. Fedora hit on a variety of issues from the possibility of using two QBs to playing the most productive running back whoever that might be. Those two lines of thought alone support Fedora's outlook of every position being wide open. The Tar Heel coach didn't make much mention of the defense but focused on the...

Paul Chryst says Ejuan Price injury won't impact James Conner's time on defense

Paul Chryst spoke at ACC Media Days where SB Nation had some representatives, and perhaps the biggest piece of news that came out was his thoughts on the Ejuan Price injury. We've wondered if the injury could mean increased playing time for James Conner on defense, but Chryst seemed to downplay that notion. "First and foremost, you feel bad for Ejuan. He missed a lot of...

Boston College Football Preview

New head coach Steve Addazio had good success in his first year at Boston College, leading the Eagles back to a bowl game.
