Already got one from Thursday night (posted to Twitter), as an overrated Virginia Tech team escaped a sub-par Georgia Tech team. Had my worst week since I can remember last week, going 13–9 and missing every close game. That drops me back to 133–43 (75.5%). ACC Virginia...

Missed my FSU-NCSU pick when Florida State decided to kick the ball around all game, flush a couple touchdown drives, and fumble inside the five yard line with under a minute to play. Jimbo Fisher was obviously devastated but extremely gracious—actually actively thanking the media...

A very tough week of picks this week; a lot of games that could go either way on the slate. ACC: Miami 28, UNC 24 (I would ordinarily pick UNC here, but with the loss of Pianalto, my gut says Miami) VaTech 45, Duke 13 (VaTech has cruised...

Pretty decent week last week (got the Notre Dame-BC game score exactly right, was within one point of the FSU-UVa game, and two points off in the Miami-Clemson game), finishing 19–5 (62–18 on the season). As for this week: ACC: NC State 34, BC 17 VaTech 42, CMU...

Missed last week (busy time), but here's this week's picks: ACC: Clemson 23, Miami 30 Florida State 34, Virginia 13 Notre Dame 31, Boston College 13 NC State 41, Virginia Tech 38 Maryland 42, Duke 24 Georgia Tech 35, Wake Forest 24 North Carolina 31, ECU 17 SEC: Alabama 30, Florida 20 Auburn 52, Louisiana-Monroe 13 Connecticut...

Rough week last week (22–5 with a couple big misses); we'll see if we can do better this week. ACC: UNC 24, Georgia Tech 21 Alabama 41, Duke 13 Maryland 28, West Virginia 24 Auburn 24, Clemson 21 Florida State 45, BYU 20 Stanford 40, Wake Forest 31 Virginia Tech 34, ECU 24 SEC: Georgia...

Wasn't able to put down many of my thoughts on the season, though I did put some things up on Twitter. Ultimately, I expect something looking like this: ACC Atlantic: Florida State Boston College Clemson NC State Wake Forest Maryland ACC Coastal: Miami UNC (if they get the majority of their suspended players back; otherwise...

ESPN's Outside the Lines has done a pretty good piece on former Florida State safety and Rhodes Scholar Myron Rolle. It's well worth the read. I've spent a good bit of time with Myron's brother McKinley, and I have a great deal of respect for...

Lots of people have mocked Brett Favre the last few years for his retire, waver, unretire shenanigans, typically portraying him as indecisive or as a guy who just can't stay away from the game. I'm convinced, however, that Favre is in no way indecisive; on...

A while back, I did a brief interview for a blog article examining ESPN's "Outside the Lines" report on the Florida State athletic department's academic scandal; since I was both a former player (albeit briefly) and a former tutor in the athletic department, I was...
