ACC Quarterbacks to Watch in 2014

The reigning Heisman winner is an obvious quarterback to watch in 2014, but outside of Jameis Winston, which other ACC QB’s should you pay attention to this fall? The conference doesn’t have many star players at the position, with guys like Tajh Boyd off to the NFL, but there are still some solid players lining up behind center this fall. Cole Stoudt, Clemson We will start off with Stoudt since I mentioned Boyd earlier. Boyd...

ACC Teams That Could Be Underrated in 2014

The ACC as a whole is an underrated conference because they don’t have the amount of national powers found in the SEC and Pac-12. There are five teams from the ACC that are being overlooked for 2014. Clemson The Tigers lost some key offensive playmakers from 2013, but will reload with more than capable replacements. Cole Stoudt, Tajh Boyd’s replacement, is a senior who has been in the system for three years. The Tigers have...

Virginia Tech Football 2014 – Better, Worse or about the Same? OFFENSE The offense is in its 2nd year under Scot Loeffler and it should bear more of his imprint. Whether they have the talent at the skill positions is yet to be seen. The Hokies have a lot of speed, and the line is veteran, but the QB is likely to be a transfer with little prep time as he won’t practice til August. They have five decent running backs,...

Pittsburgh Football 2014 – Better, Worse or about the Same? OFFENSE I expect the offense to be slightly better. The offensive line will improve if they can stay healthy, as they return four starters. Former five-star recruit Dorian Johnson, the fifth projected starter by most accounts, was a freshman backup last season. Johnson struggled, but will move from tackle to guard where things should be a little easier for him. Pitt...

Boston College Football 2014 - Better, Worse or about the Same? OFFENSE BC lost some of their major contributors on offense with the graduation of Heisman finalist Andre Williams, star receiver Alex Amidon, tackles Ian White/Matt Patchan and quarterback Chase Rettig. However BC reloaded this offseason with the transfer of Florida QB Tyler Murphy, and a stable of young running backs including sophomore Myles Willis and...

Florida State Football 2014 Spring Wrap Up

Florida State Football 2014 Spring Wrap Up Strengths & question marks coming out of spring Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher was mostly pleased with this spring. He saw young talent develop, especially at running back, receiver, defensive line and linebacker. The Seminoles lose 10 starters (five apiece on offense and defense), so there are questions about who will fill starting roles. But the feeling is that FSU’s...
