Around the A.C.C.: August 23, 2016

As we all patiently and not-so-patiently await the start of the college football season, there is not much actual news to report.  Every blog and newspaper covering every A.C.C. school is knee-deep in their articles about why each and every player is going to surprise everyone this year, giving hope (and often false hope) to fans.  So be it.  That is what makes college sports so fun.  The hope is legitimate.  Anyway, here is what is happening at several schools:

So there it is… August 23, 2016.  Football is coming, folks.  Hang in there.

  1. Thank you for the kind words about ACCFootballRx.

    By the way, I’m curious what you guys think about the Syracuse/Army series just scheduled. Should we read into it that the ACC will soon follow the B1G and SEC by counting Army as a “power” opponent? If so, should we expect ‘Cuse to announce another “true” P5 opponent in those years in preparation for a possible 8+2 schedule?

    • You are welcome. I would not be surprised if Syracuse continues to overschedule into perpetuity. There is no evidence of the Athletic Department NOT doing that. So I would look for the Army years to be joined with the scheduling of some big time program (despite being in a conference division with Clemson and FSU). Prove me wrong, Syracuse. Prove me wrong.
