Despite horrible weekend, ACC still basketball’s best league

in Sports by

ACC fans, or supporters of schools outside of the SEC, often grumble about the “best conference by far” tag often given to the SEC by football pundits. Each time an SEC team loses a bowl game or a head-to-head matchup with one of the outsiders, the derision often follows. Conversely, SEC basketball fans, or supporters of other power conferences outside of the ACC, are equally uncertain that conference is that much better than the others. The ACC put eight teams…

FSU comes from behind to beat Michigan in Orange Bowl

in Sports/Top Headlines by

FSU had blown it. They had the game won, and they had let it slip away. It was going to be a lousy finish for the Seminoles. And then it wasn’t.

Quarterback Deondre Francois, who had one of his roughest nights, hit Nyquan Murray for 12 yards and the winning touchdown with…

in Sports/Top Headlines by

It says a great many things about the FSU program that this will be remembered as a season of underachievement. After all, the Seminoles are ranked 10th in the country. They have a shot at 10 wins.

Still, for a team that has won a national title and been in the playoffs in recent seasons,…

Could FSU ride its momentum to win in Orange Bowl game?

Before you convince yourself how big a favorite sixth-ranked Michigan is over FSU in Friday night’s Orange Bowl, perhaps you should re-consider the last month. You know, when FSU was 4-0. You know, when Michigan was 2-2. Perhaps more things than momentum will matter when the two clash. But FSU has played its best football, especially on defense. Michigan has played well, too, especially in a double-overtime loss to Ohio State, but still, the Wolverines have lost two games in…

Michigan looks for another holiday in Florida in Orange Bowl

in Sports/Top Headlines by

A year ago, Michigan took out its frustrations on a Florida team in a Florida Bowl. Might it happen again? The Wolverines are a touchdown favorite to beat FSU in this season’s Orange Bowl. A year ago, Michigan won an easy game against Florida, 41-7, in the Citrus Bowl. The game could end up being a game of chase-the-quarterback. FSU leads in the nation in sacks, and Michigan is fourth. If you consider sacks-per-game, Michigan is second. The Wolverines are…
