Virginia Tech loses DJ Coles for 2012 season


DJ Coles, VT's top returning receiver by receptions, busted his knee and will miss the rest of the 2012 season. Virginia Tech is now down to only returning 16.5% of catches from a low 31.3%, and just 19.5% of yards, down from 34.6%. Add this to an OL that lost a lot of starts, a 1st round RB, and the comparisons of Logan Thomas to Cam Newton are unlikely to be fulfilled this year.

Doyel - Florida State was supposed to save ACC, but instead it's killing it


Doyel uses the typical national-sportswriter-beat-wake-first nonsense to slam FSU for potentially leaving the ACC for the B12. But then he veers from the standard fact-devoid column into uncharted waters: - TCU (TCU!!) is one of the reasons FSU would remain in "relative mediocrity" if we go to the B12 - He seems to believe Swofford has the acumen to do something about this: "He's sneaky, he's ruthless, and he has no conscience. In other words, he's "a consensus builder." Wouldn't stun me if Swofford manages to save the ACC, break free from the BCS and join OPEC. Swofford is that good. Or bad. Both." -FSU is "coming back slowly" under CJF. Same guy who took the offense from mid-60s to top 10. Same program that has improved from 25th in 2009 (with #1 O and #99 D) to 15th in 2010 to 8th in 2011. And has as many wins as all but 12 BCS programs in last 2 years. He is, of course, correct that FSU and Clemson leaving will kill the ACC.

Updated 2012 Roster for Spring Ball


The roster on seminoles.com has been updated. Some interesting notes: - Terrance Smith did get a medical redshirt - 11 scholarship players from 2011 class redshirted, including 2 DT, 2 OL, 2 DB - Glauser is listed as a senior. Apparently there were issues at his previous school, and he will only have 1 year of eligibility. - Only 2 of 7 OL from 2011 class were able to redshirt, which speaks to level of injuries/depth problems going into 2011 - We have 4 SR DT's. Behind them are Jernigan, Mitchell, and NLS. Goldman and Shanks make 5 scholarship DT's for 2013

It's official: Kickoffs from 35, touchbacks to 25, 5yd running start for coverage team


"The Playing Rules Oversight Panel (PROP) during its conference call on Tuesday approved moving the kickoff and touchback lines beginning with the 2012 football season. Next fall, teams will kick off at the 35-yard line instead of the 30. Also, players on the kicking team can’t line up for the play behind the 30-yard line, which is intended to limit the running start kicking teams used to have during the play. Also, touchbacks on free kicks will be moved to the 25-yard line instead of the 20 to encourage more touchbacks. Touchbacks on other plays (for example, punts that go into the end zone, or fumbles that go out of the end zone) will remain at the 20-yard line." - from NCAA website What I really didn't like was the no-running-start rule for coverage teams. The 35/25 would make elite kickers even more valuable, giving a major field position advantage for a team who can kick it sky high with good coverage. Coverage rule may negate that effect if you can't get down there quick enough.

If Cristobal goes to Rutgers, will recommend FSU OC James Coley for FIU HC job


As reported by @coachingsearch - who, notably, also threw out the name Eddie Gran UPDATED: hours later, multiple twitter reports make me look like an idiot. Cristobal will stay at FIU. Sorry Trooper Taylor, you'll have to find fodder for negative recruiting elsewhere.

Some choice quotes from Dabo's press conference about Steele today. Notably, he had ACC Champ trophy at table, yet no oranges. On Steele "Can't let a terrible night lose sight of some special things we accomplished this year" - like giving up 27+ points to 9 teams, including an FCS team and a 2-10 team. "Clemson football is back, and we ain't going nowhere" "I have no doubt we can become the dominant team that the ACC has needed. "Right now we are the best team in this league" - 3rd in ACC in F/+ "we've got a chance over the next 4-6 years to make a run that Clemson hasn't seen in a long time." I hope we're accumulating bulletin board material here.
