Today and Monday, ACC coaches and players will descend on Pinehurst Resort in North Carolina for the 2011 ACC Football Kickoff. Things get started today with a live question and answer session between ACC Commissioner John Swofford and the media. The event will be broadcast from 12:30-1:30 pm on the ACC's kickoff website. After the Q&A, two player reps from each school will participate in interview sessions from 2-6 pm.
Tomorrow, there will be an ACC football rules/officiating media clinic from 10:30-11:30 am, followed by a BCS/ACC bowl partners forum with BCS executive director Bill Hancock and the ACC's bowl partners from 1:30-2 pm. The main event, however, will be the head coaches' interviews from 2-6 pm, which is always an adventure with Spaz.
The 2011 ACC Football Preseason Poll will be announced early afternoon on Monday, July 25. After it is announced by the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association (ACSMA), the complete poll will be available on theACC.com and we'll post our thoughts following the announcement.
Finally, the 2011 ACC Football Preseason All-ACC Team will be announced on Wednesday, July 27.
