It has been an interesting couple of weeks. As Virginia Tech celebrates yet another ACC championship and Hokie fans scramble for reasonably-priced Orange Bowl tickets, i.e., those not for sale by Tech, things are once again jumping around the rest of the league. Alarms have been raised at Tech as the university prepares to eat […]
It was an interesting Saturday. For the second time this year, the distances along I-95 to where Virginia Tech was judged to be just a bit far. For the second time this year, a Saturday afternoon was spent in my recliner observing two games on my Bravia. All in all, it was not a bad […]
Well, it was Halloween. The ACC staged a fairly-eventful weekend of football, a zany few days of tricks played on most of the favorites and a rather large treat awarded to one team. The main beneficiary of the action was Virginia Tech. Through no fault of its own, the Hokies saw their Coastal Division lead […]
The ACC’s battle royal of a regular season has ended. All 12 of the teams, their handlers, cut men and UCF officials convene in Greensboro. The final seedings and even the identity of fourth team with a Thursday bye was not decided until the last minute of the last game Sunday night. Ratings for the […]
Well, this very likely won’t be the first ACC basketball season where every single team finishes with an 8-8 record. While it looked for a while that the entire conference might finish at .500 in league play, and a bunch still might, a bit of separation has taken place in the standings. There is also […]
The A-Line Board of Football Experts Fear the Turtle? Well, not exactly.

Tech showed none of the listlessness on display the previous […]
Spending a weekend snacking on ACC basketball enabled one to enjoy all sorts of tasty morsels. NC State encountered little more difficulty in taking Atlanta than did Sherman. There was something found in Hooville rarer than cheap wine. And there was another problem from Seth’s poster-boy recruit. It wasn’t too hard to put the finger […]
As the 2009 basketball season lumbers on, interesting story lines abound. One of the more intriguing comes out of Blacksburg. It was quite a week for the Tech basketball team. It started with Tech sneaking up on a Wake Forest team basking in the glow of the media glare of their top ranking. They were […]
With the football season right around the corner, this seems like as good a time as any to make my annual football predictions. As always, these predictions are guaranteed to be correct unless they are not. Atlantic Division 1] Florida State- For 16 years the Noles have resided atop ACC preseason forecasts. For most of […]
04/07/08 It was a short Final Four for Carolina. A funny thing happened to this Tar Heels team on their way to adding their own banner to the seemingly dozens of championship ones draped around the rafters of Dean’s Dome. Specifically, Kansas happened. Yikes! My bracket picks of Carolina meeting UCLA in the Final Two […]
