  1. Forgive my exuberance, but I went to Clemson for both undergraduate and graduate school, and after being there during the glorious 1981-1982 National Championship season, it has been 34 years of non-stop heartache. They've been good, and at times excellent, but they've never come close to repeating that one, unforgettable accomplishment. --- "Clemson Tigers Banned from Social Media during Season" on si.com Supposedly, "to keep players' focus on football as opposed to the outside world." I read it more as, "to keep any stars from getting trashed at 2 AM and tweeting something stupid." Can you imagine completely giving up social media for four months in this day and age when you're in college? This is the 21st-century version of saltpeter.
  2. This graphic showing ESPN's Top 10 High School Senior basketball rankings is pretty scary, if you don't pull for Duke:
  3. Just a quick stinkeye to the Duke Blue Devils for nabbing Zion Williamson from Clemson. Okay, I get it, we get all the great football players (cf: KJ Henry), but can't you at least leave us some basketball scraps from our own state? I mean, Williamson is one of the most highly touted recruits since LeBron James, and you took him from us! Stop it!
  4. I just started two new forums: Colleges and High Schools, which are only visible to members (just for a little extra member-privacy). I'm hopeful that this will bring our membership closer together through common life experiences. I went to Clemson, because it was the only school I got into. But I liked it so much that I ended up staying for 5 1/2 years, for both undergraduate (Accounting) and graduate school (Computer Science). Any other Clemson Tigers here?
  5. Wake Forest is an underrated football team in this 2017 season, with a record of 4-1, having lost only to Florida State last weekend, 26-19. One thing that most people don't realize is that, after five games, they *lead the nation* in "Tackles for Loss" with 50 - that's 10 per game.
  6. The ACC has changed so much from when I was a child (and you could simply "go down Tobacco Road") that I thought I'd write this little primer, mainly for myself to remember things, but also for others. In late 2012, Louisville agreed to replace Maryland, bringing the conference up to 15 teams as of Jul 1, 2014. It's because of my childhood love of Maryland sports that I'll always get a warm, fuzzy feeling when I hear "ACC" mentioned, even though it's nothing like the ACC of my childhood. That said, all schools that were in the Conference 40 years ago remain *except* for Maryland, so the Conference has grown more than it has changed. (South Carolina, the other "former" ACC member, was an original Conference member, but left in 1971.) Here then, are the two Divisions (Divisional play began in 2005), with the teams in each Division alongside the date they joined the Conference. It seems like, for convenience of travel - think of all the minor sports that need to travel - they'd put geographically proximal schools in the same Division, but that's not the way it is: Atlantic Division 1953 Clemson North Carolina State Wake Forest University 1991 Florida State University 2005 Boston College 2013 Syracuse University University of Notre Dame 2014 University of Louisville Coastal Division 1953 Duke University University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill University of Virginia 1979 Georgia Institute of Technology 2004 University of Miami Virginia Tech 2013 University of Pittsburgh
