Prediction: ACC vs. Notre Dame (ESPN ACC Blog)
Three strikes for the ACC. The league finishes with a 0-3 record this year against the Irish after Boston College struggles to get its offense going, Maryland can’t make enough stops and the Deacs turn it over one too many times. Thanks in part to the ACC, Notre Dame finds itself back in a BCS bowl.

ESPN's Roger Brown checks in today on his recruiting blog with Cheshire Academy athlete Malik Golden, who has cut his list of schools he's considering to four.

KP's Layman makes strides at Big Shots (ESPN Boston High School Blog)
Scouts are predicting big things for King Philip's Jake Layman when he hits the Nike EYBL Finals with the Boston Amateur Basketball Club this week in North Augusta, S.C. But before that, he stopped by the Big Shots showcase event this weekend in Myrtle Beach, S.C., and drew the eye of ESPN basketball recruiting analysts Dave Telep and Mike LaPlante.
Serious consideration for Isaacs (Rivals)
Even though it's still very early in his recruitment, Andrew Isaacs, who already has an offer from Boston College, said he's taking the Eagles really seriously especially after visiting there recently for its summer camp. Isaacs, a 6-foot-3, 230-pound tight end from Manchester, Conn., said he has really hit it off with position coach Dave Brock so things are going well between the 2013 prospect and the Eagles.
2011 New Jersey Devils Developmental Camp: The 11 Undrafted Invitees (In Lou We Trust)
Joe Whitney is a more interesting invite, however. He's also not big (5'6", 172 lbs.), but he has been quite productive with Boston College. In addition to being a member of their 2009 national championship team, Whitney had a monster freshman year with 11 goals and 40 assists and earned all-NCAA tournament honors in the 2009 Frozen Four according to the school's profile page on him.

Northwestern has a Depth Chart!!!!!!!111!! (Sippin' On Purple)
At the very least, it's the first time I've seen anything: NU released a alphabetical depth chart with its spring prospectus and this injury-mauled depth chart for media at the spring game, but that was so unrelated to the team NU actually plans on fielding it wasn't worth much.
Position Breakdowns: Running Backs (Blogger So Dear)
In a 3-9 season, there are very few things that go right for a team, but the running game was certainly one of the bright spots. As some of you may know, I am very, very high on Josh Harris. I believe that he could have one of the better individual years in Wake Forest history on the ground if he can avoid injury.
Examining the Atlantic: Wake Forest (Chopping Block)
As for the schedule, Week 2 will be a test, but the real test of how good the Deacs are won’t come until their October gauntlet. Boston College, FSU and Virginia Tech are all expected to be very strong this season. North Carolina in the final week of the month won’t be easy, either.
Inside the Clemson Offense: The Wishbone to the Inverted Wishbone (Shakin The Southland)
The Inverted Wishbone, also commonly referred to as the "Diamond Formation" is a hybrid three back (plus QB) set that derives its name and many base concepts from the Wishbone offense. This formation gained popularity over the past couple years. We obviously saw it with Chad Morris and Tulsa last season.
ACC Blogger Football Preview – Atlantic No. 2…NC State (ACC Blogger)
O’Brien has them in a good rut? – O’Brien first three seasons went 5-7, 6-7 and 5-7. Could last year’s 9-4 run be the start of a consistent streak in the right direction? We shall see.
Scouting FSU’s schedule: A look at N.C. State’s spring (Chopping Block)
The Wolfpack obviously have gone through a set of unique challenges this offseason with the on-again, off-again affair surrounding quarterback Russell Wilson’s departure, but appear well-prepared to fully move on from the drama. But are they prepared to move on from other departures, and are they ready to take the next step toward being among the ACC’s elite? Only time will tell …
