ACC money and other links

According to tax returns, the ACC revenue continues to rise. Even in BC's final year as a partial member, we took in more than $8 million.

People are still talking about Rice's 46-point outburst against UNC. I don't know if I agree that Rice is under the radar. He was first team ACC.

Former Eagle Lenny Walls signed on with the Ravens.

Ron Brace is getting more attention. I am giddy at the thought of Brace and Raji on the field together for a full season.

Gonzalez realizes he can be cut by the Falcons at any minute.

Here is some discussion of whether Matt should start right away. (Thanks to Tim E. for the link.)

I'd like to see the Falcons give Matt 4 or 5 games, at least, before his first start. It will not surprise me to see him start in Game 1.

Best of luck to Tony Gonsalez - he could turn out to be a great possession receiver.

I share your excitement at the thought of Brace and Raji clogging up the middle, stuffing the run and pressuring the quarterback - and setting the table for the other defenders to make the big plays.

I didn't realize that Walls was still playing - hope he can stay healthy to show his talent.

Let's win the ACC AND the Orange Bowl - and earn some good revenue.

By the way - there's a lot riding on young Haden this year.

Perhaps Mulrooney can make an impact to help out. We have some other incoming freshmen who look like they will be very good - but the point is, WE ARE VERY YOUNG at RB - which is well known.

Everything else will have to click.
