Weekly ACC Roundup 8/17: Trombone Shorty Edition

Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports

News and notes from ACC country.

Ahhh, can you smell it? Can you feel it? Football is almost here. Let's get caught up with teams from around the conference as the start of the 2013 season nears.

Boston College: Eagles writers hope for the best, prepare for the worst. Well, if I had to guess...

Clemson: No peach carnitas this week. No, there is much more important issues this week. Two more people were arrested in the vandalization of Howard's Rock.

Duke: The Devils held their second scrimmage of camp. No word on whether Duke fans have figured out they are fielding a football team this year. Maybe after the next scrimmage. I kid, I kid.

Florida State: The lowly Seminoles are preparing for the mighty Panthers, their biggest test of the year (in week one, no less).

Georgia Tech: The Jackets are counting down to kickoff. Check out From the Rumble Seat (and not just for our mutual love of the Avett Brothers).

Louisville Maryland: I'm sure the Terps are practicing football specific time and location. If a team practices in the ACC and no one gives a damn, does it actually happen?

Miami: Some images from Week 2 of Hurricanes camp. I'm predicting a more "U"-like season in 2013.

NC State: The Wolfpack are trying to move away from being average. I'm assuming to above average. I hear ya, bros. I hear ya.

North Carolina: Something about PJ Hairston and a picture of Roy Williams golfing. Never change, UNC.

Syracuse: Who is the Orange's most important offensive player? I'm going with Gerry McNamara.

Virginia: The Hoos offense could be good. Or bad. Analysis from Streaking the Lawn.

Virginia Tech: The Hokies have huge injury issues heading into their opener with Alabama. This won't end well.

Wake Forest: Blogger So Dear is previewing the Deac's opponents.

Ok, now it's time for some music. Trombone Shorty is New Orleans' best export right now. The dude can play. Get your funk on and have a good weekend.
