If you haven't already, be sure to check out ACC Sports' Ask A Blogger spring football wrap-up. Jim Young has asked some of the top bloggers from around the conference to weigh in on how spring football went at the school they cover. The "Ask A Blogger" series has already made its way to 11 of the ACC's 12 programs, with only Miami left to preview.

That also means that they've already hit up seven of BC's eight conference opponents in 2011.

Here's a reader's digest version of what's making each blogger feel good about their heading into summer camps. Be sure to click through to fully read up on the Eagles' 2011 opponents.

 

Ask A Blogger: Duke Spring Football Review with Duke Hoop Blog
"The passing game will continue to be a strength and [Sean] Renfree has a bevy of weapons at his disposal. So that puts Duke in a good place heading into the fourth year of David Cutcliffe's tenure. He's known for his ability to develop signal-callers, and Renfree has shown he has the ability to throw the ball."

Ask A Blogger: Wake Forest Spring Football Review with Blogger So Dear
"Our receivers. I think there are a lot of weapons in this offense, and if offensive line play is even remotely better than last year, I think [Tanner] Price will be more comfortable with the speed of ACC play and will hit his targets. This is one of the fastest teams Wake has ever had, so it would be nice if they used it."

Ask A Blogger: Clemson Spring Football Review with Block-C
"The depth at running back is very encouraging. If we look at the spring game, you will see that three backs rushed for 97+ yards and none of those guys were named Andre Ellington (the best back on the team) or Mike Bellamy (the incoming 5-star recruit). So just knowing that the running game should be deep and talented this season makes me feel good."

Ask A Blogger: Virginia Tech Spring Football Review with Gobbler Country
"The linebackers. Tech is loaded at both middle linebacker positions after "backer" Tariq Edwards had an excellent spring following the departure of Lyndell Gibson. At "mike", the battle between 2009 starter Barquell Rivers and 2010 starter Bruce Taylor probably won't be decided until right before the start of the season and both played exceptionally well in their year at mike."

Ask A Blogger: Maryland Spring Football Review with Testudo Times
"That the core of a 9-win team is still around and looks to be doing fine. With such little news out surrounding spring ball and a new regime that could lead to some changes, there are a lot of variables surrounding Maryland right now. If nothing else, though, they return much of the team that won them 9 games last year, including the most important piece, [Danny] O'Brien."

Ask A Blogger: Florida State Spring Football Review with Tomahawk Nation ($)

Ask A Blogger: N.C. State Spring Football Review with Riddick & Reynolds
"The defense seems every bit as strong as it did last season, even without Nate Irving. Audie Cole has moved into Irving's vacated middle linebacker role and while he won't be able to replace Irving's preternatural nose for the football, he should be able to match his athleticism (see also: his insane interception against USF last season). Cole, Terrell Manning (who had a pick-six in the spring game) and D.J. Green will comprise a very athletic linebacking corps well-suited to Jon Tenuta's attacking defensive scheme."

The Miami Hurricanes remain a work in progress. Pun intended.
