Football season is getting closer. Camps are about to open. It's (almost) the most wonderful time of the year. Here are some links to hold you over.
Boston College: BC Interruption pokes fun at the fact the Eagles start the season unranked. We hear you, guys.
Clemson: The Tigers, on the other hand, start the season ranked 8th in the coaches poll. They were also voted most likely to finish the season unranked. Ruh-roh.
Duke: A look at Anthony Boone, Duke's most important player.
Florida State: The Noles are ranked 12th in the coaches poll. Enjoy for week one, guys! (Shots fired)
Georgia Tech: Jacket bloggers have the best take on coaches polls.
Louisville Maryland: Yeah, like Maryland is ranked. Get real.
Miami: The Canes are not ranked to start the season. They're just on the outside looking in. I like the Canes this year. In our Cardiac Hill media day I voted Duke Johnson as the Offensive POY and Al Golden as COY.
NC State: Rafael Palmeiro's son committed to play baseball for the Pack. Does he have a Twitter account?
North Carolina: Insert PJ Hairston story here.
Syracuse: Syracuse is rearranging the Carrier Dome for Duke's arrival (in basketball, folks).
Virginia: The Hoos odds to win the ACC title are the same as Pitt's (33/1). So you're saying there's a chance?
Virginia Tech: The Hokies are unranked in the coaches poll for the first time since 2004.
Wake Forest: Blogger So Dear and BC Interruption are teaming up for a good cause. Good job to all.
This week Rolling Stone released their 50 Best Live Acts right now. Bruce Springsteen is ranked #1 and the only younger act in the top five is Arcade Fire. I've read the whole list and I think there is one omission. The best band I've seen live is the Avett Brothers, hands down. Here they are playing "Laundry Room" live.
