USA TODAY Sports

Daily Links for Wednesday, July 9.

Good morning, everyone. Let's hope you all have a better day than Brazil did yesterday.

Jim Christian and crew are apparently targeting New York guard Donovan Mitchell as the summer recruiting period gets underway.

The player Ed Cooley and his staff have spent the most time on over the last two years for this class is Donovan Mitchell, a 6-3 guard from New York City who plays at Brewster (N.H.) Academy. Mitchell has been on PC's campus with his family numerous times, and the fact that he has yet to commit poses major questions for the coaching staff. Boston College has emerged as a serious contender and Mitchell has also expressed interest in Georgia Tech, but he also could be waiting for even more scholarship offers over the next few weeks.

Realignment/playoff talk, because we just can't get enough.

New era for college football raises the anticipation - Pensacola News Journal

Nearly one half of the ACC membership now consists of Boston College, Syracuse, Pittsburgh, Virginia Tech, Louisville and Notre Dame (all sports except football). All in a conference with its core roots in North Carolina. Five years ago, this was preposterous. Times quickly changed.

1. Boston College (tie). Boston College-like Wake Forest-is 5-8 in non-conference action since 2011 but improved to a 3-2 record last season. The Eagles' last non-ACC win came via a 48-34 victory over New Mexico State in 2013, but they haven't beaten a team from a power five league since beating Michigan State 24-21 in the 2007 Champs Sports Bowl.

Of the eight lines that were released, Florida State is favored by at least 14 points in all of them. The ones that aren't on the board - home games vs. The Citadel, Wake Forest, Virginia and Boston College - will all certainly be multiple-touchdown spreads when they are released during the season.

Milano has plenty on his plate during the coming months, including an invite to USA Hockey's World Junior evaluation camp in Lake Placid in August. Soon after, he'll head to BC, where he will be expected to pick up the offensive slack left by a slew of departures from the perennially powerful Eagles.

The majority of prospects at Calgary Flames development camp are hell-bent on adding bulk to their frames, but 22-year-old centre Bill Arnold is actually shooting to slim down a bit this summer.
