Monday news clippings

If there is an overriding theme to this season in the ACC, it is “how is team X’s quarterback going to play?” It seems that ever team is either breaking in someone new, handing an experienced guy a new offense or waiting for a starter with a past to get his act together -- either on (Ball or Porter) or off the field (Vick). This article runs through the challenges and questions facing the ACC signal callers.

I am ready for the season to start just so I don’t have to read another ACC is now a football conference story. As this article shows, money was a big factor in the conference shift. The Kiwi story is also growing old. He has been the subject of the same angle at least 20 times this offseason. I’d imagine he is sick of it at this point too.

Here’s a quick ACC overview from the Charlotte Observer. It doesn’t compare to the AJC’s coverage. But I am obviously biased.

As far as actual game prep in concerned, BC is not overlooking BYU. The Cougars are a tough opener. But Mr. Routine TOB is not taking his young team out early to adjust. I agree with not going out early. I just don’t want to hear it as an excuse if BC loses.
