As we already know, Pitt is heading to a new home in a few shorts weeks. To make sure everyone is prepared, I'm starting a weekly roundup of news and notes from around the conference. I'm hoping to make this a Friday tradition and a nice way to send you all into the weekend. We'll start alphabetically so as not to play favorites, because if I were, Wake Forest would most certainly be first.
Boston College: The Eagles bloggers at BC Interruption are in favor of moving the ACC tourney to MSG. But not so fast.
Clemson: The Tigers baseball team (and their awesome unis) are taking on FSU in an Atlantic Division battle. Shakin the Southland brings the heat.
Duke: The Blue Devils face Notre Dame in the quarterfinals of the NCAA lacrosse tourney. Duke needed two overtimesto beat Loyola (Md.) last weekend. Offered without comment: a guy named 'Deemer' plays for Duke. That's all.
Florida State: Andrew Wiggins, the top basketball recruit in the nation, didn't pick the Seminoles. Sucks to be them, but at least they haven't lost nearly half their team via transfer, the NBA, scurvy...or whatever the heck is going on at Pitt.
Georgia Tech: Pitt fans aren't the only ones who fantasize about stadiums!!!
Maryland: The traitors, I mean Terrapins, released their 2014 B1G football schedule. It's...um...shall we say...a baptism by fire.
Miami: The Canes were once a powerhouse on the diamond, not so much in 2013. They may not even make the ACC tournament.
North Carolina: UNC probably has the best baseball team in the country...outside of Oakland, am I right? Or am I right?
Syracuse: Something, something, lacrosse, something, whatever.
Virginia: The Hoos and their 3rd ranked RPI travel to Chapel Hill to face the 2nd ranked Heels.
Wake Forest: Pitt fans, take note, this is how you try to fire an AD (Please, don't get any ideas).
So that concludes the first annual ACC Roundup. Hopefully this will become a weekly piece. To cap it off, I'm going to post a music video of my choice, with one rule, no Dave Matthews since Anson has that covered.
