Boston College Daily Links: More ACC Football Schedule Reactions

At Long Last, the 2012 A.C.C. Schedule (Pre-Snap Read)
If only by default, the best weekend of the A.C.C. season is Oct. 20 — the only weekend with six conference games. Better yet, that doubles as the same weekend as Virginia Tech’s trip to Clemson, which might be a conference title game preview, and Florida State’s annual tussle with the Hurricanes.

2012 ACC Football Schedule: Highlights, Strength Of Schedule And More (SBNation.com)
The 2012 ACC football schedule has now joined us. Virginia Tech's the bull in the ring, Miami's running a gauntlet, and even Florida State fans approve.

Early ACC schedule thoughts (ESPN ACC Blog)
"When looking at it on paper, it looks like it's going to be tough for Boston College to get to a bowl game. Aside from Maine, not seeing any "givens" there."

Yeah, tell me something I DON'T know.

FSU Football Schedule Analysis & Breakdown (Tomahawk Nation)
Boston College was a bad team last year and while the Eagles should be improved (they return most of their starters), FSU should still be a multiple-TD favorite. BC plays at Army the week before.

Miami Hurricanes 2012 Football Schedule - Strap In, It's Going To Get Rough (The 7th Floor)
This is a conference game, on the road, to open the season. This means that this team of very young kids will be playing a real game together for the first time, and a loss would mean an early setback in the conference race. The pressure on this game, even though it's against what should be a middle of the road opponent, is huge. This game could go either way very easily, but in the end I tend to lean more towards our level of talent figuring things out and getting the win.

The Worst of Both Worlds for Miami (Fla.) (Pre-Snap Read)
This is not a healthy slate of games for such a youthful team. Even if B.C. is suffering through a painful down spell, the Hurricanes would certainly rather open with Bethune-Cookman, not an A.C.C. road game. And Kansas State is everything Miami is not: a veteran, experienced bunch with a cocksure senior quarterback and a coach legendary for his ability to wring the most of his roster

ACC Football Schedule Released, Terps Draw Tough November (Testudo Times)
Overall, I see about 6 wins here. What say you?

Maryland Minute -02.27.12 -More on the ACC Football Schedule & Baseball's Recent Surge (Testudo Times)
Looks like Maryland has the 3rd hardest schedule next year. And as Patrick Stevens noted, Maryland went 0-9 against opponents they faced last year that they're facing again in 2012. Solid.

Wake Forest 2012 Football Schedule Finally Released (Blogger So Dear)
Two sneaky tough games follow the Clemson game. The Deacs have the Eagles of Boston College in Winston before travelling to Raleigh to take on the Wolfpack in a road game. Two wins would be nice there, but I think State might have something for us in Raleigh this year, who knows though at this juncture.
