TweetWe seemed to finally have reached a juncture where a deep long breath can be taken with all this expansion business. I wanted to wait until something significant and credible occurred before commenting again, and I think that point has been reached. The Daily Press of Virginia offers some great thoughts on the ACC following […]

Is the ACC at a disadvantage in a 4-Team playoff format? http://ballhyped.com/2012/06/03/is-the-acc-at-a-disadvantage-in-a-4-team-playoff-format/ Sun, 03 Jun 2012 17:42:38 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/06/03/is-the-acc-at-a-disadvantage-in-a-4-team-playoff-format/

TweetRecently I took a look at the two 4 Team playoff formats, conference champions or 4 team playoffs. I concluded that in either scenario if you simply win games you’ll have a shot at the playoff. Now I want to go through those same rankings and look at it from ACC football perspective. I had […]

A clearer understanding of those “Tier 3″ rights and the ACC. http://ballhyped.com/2012/05/10/a-clearer-understanding-of-those-tier-3%e2%80%b3-rights-and-the-acc/ Fri, 11 May 2012 02:20:44 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/05/10/a-clearer-understanding-of-those-tier-3%e2%80%b3-rights-and-the-acc/

TweetTier 3, Tier 3 Tier 3, that’s all we hear about. The ACC sold their Tier 3 rights to ESPN and the Big 12 didn’t. Therefore the Big 12 can make a gazillion dollars while the ACC makes zilch. It’s hard to distinguish what is fact and what’s fiction. The details of such complicated deals […]

Is the SEC the ACC’s unlikely ally in conference expansion? http://ballhyped.com/2012/05/05/is-the-sec-the-accs-unlikely-ally-in-conference-expansion/ Sun, 06 May 2012 03:30:07 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/05/05/is-the-sec-the-accs-unlikely-ally-in-conference-expansion/

TweetIn the world of conference expansion rumors swirl every day. The latest rumor de jour is that Clemson and Florida State are in discussion with the Big 12. Somehow this rumor which started on a West Virginia message board seems to have taken on a life of its own. When it comes to expansion nobody […]

What did the 2012 NFL draft tell us about some ACC Myths? http://ballhyped.com/2012/04/29/what-did-the-2012-nfl-draft-tell-us-about-some-acc-myths/ Mon, 30 Apr 2012 00:26:39 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/04/29/what-did-the-2012-nfl-draft-tell-us-about-some-acc-myths/

TweetThe 2012 NFL draft is in the books. There were 31 ACC players picked. Over the last few years we’ve heard certain myths regarding offenses, general talent level and recruiting that this year’s NFL draft opened some eyes about. Consider Boise St. never recruits any of those elite classes, but they had 6 NFL players […]

One thing scares me about the proposed 4-Team college football playoff. http://ballhyped.com/2012/04/28/one-thing-scares-me-about-the-proposed-4-team-college-football-playoff/ Sat, 28 Apr 2012 16:14:07 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/04/28/one-thing-scares-me-about-the-proposed-4-team-college-football-playoff/

TweetIf you’ve read my blog in the past you know I’ve always been in favor of a +1 system. I’m ok with the 4-Team playoff as well. This week has left us with the near certainty that a 4 team playoff will exist. ESPN is reporting that the proposed post-season plan would link the sites […]

Are Clemson’s Sammy Watkins and DeAndre Hopkins the nation’s best WR tandem? http://ballhyped.com/2012/04/18/are-clemsons-sammy-watkins-and-deandre-hopkins-the-nations-best-wr-tandem/ Wed, 18 Apr 2012 23:18:59 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/04/18/are-clemsons-sammy-watkins-and-deandre-hopkins-the-nations-best-wr-tandem/

TweetBefore the Clemson’s Sammy Watkins made a splash last year as a the nation’s best freshman wide receiver, the Tigers had another talented wide receiver on their roster, DeAndre Hopkins. In 2010 Hopkins as freshman led the Tigers with 52 receptions for 637 and made several of his own freshman All-American lists that year.

Just how important is the ACC’s upcoming TV Deal? http://ballhyped.com/2012/04/14/just-how-important-is-the-accs-upcoming-tv-deal/ Sat, 14 Apr 2012 16:46:08 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/04/14/just-how-important-is-the-accs-upcoming-tv-deal/

TweetI don’t think anyone will argue that the upcoming deal is very important to the future of the ACC, but I believe it’s more than just important. It might just mean entire future of the ACC as we currently know it. How did I come to this conclusion? Well, recently I had a lively conversation […]

Ranking the last 10 College Basketball National Title Teams. http://ballhyped.com/2012/04/08/ranking-the-last-10-college-basketball-national-title-teams/ Sun, 08 Apr 2012 15:45:59 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/04/08/ranking-the-last-10-college-basketball-national-title-teams/

TweetKentucky’s recent national championship victory raised some questions about just how good was this Wildcat team. Could they beat the 2003 Connecticut team featuring Emeka Okafor or the Tyler Hansbrough led 2009 North Carolina team? Certainly Anthony Davis is one of the best freshman defensive big men I’ve ever seen. Of course we’ll never know […]

TweetNot too long ago we went through the Athlon Sports Ranking of the ACC Coaches. These were rankings in large part I didn’t agree with. Some of the comments I had there I’ll elaborate on now when I rank the ACC coaches for a little spring football reading. 1. Frank Beamer, Virginia Tech What I […]

How Frank Martin’s hiring at South Carolina could affect the ACC. http://ballhyped.com/2012/03/28/how-frank-martins-hiring-at-south-carolina-could-affect-the-acc/ Thu, 29 Mar 2012 02:45:27 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/03/28/how-frank-martins-hiring-at-south-carolina-could-affect-the-acc/

TweetThere was a hiring move this week that frankly floored me and that I think has farther reaching implications than may appear on the surface. Implications that I discussed with FSU Fan @saintwarrick and Georgia Tech fan @younglefhander on twitter. South Carolina lured away Kansas State head basketball coach Frank Martin to coach in Columbia. […]

TweetThe ACC has completed their 1st round of the NCAA tournament. It was certainly a mixed bad. North Carolina, NC State, and Florida State advanced. Duke and Virginia were sent home. Let’s grade out each team’s performance. Of all the ACC teams, I was the most impressed by NC State and there 14 point win […]
