The Clemson Tigers (14-12) (4-10) return in direction of stage upon Tuesday night as they push in direction of Blacksburg Virginia in the direction of get upon the Hokies of Virginia Tech (18-8) (7-7) inside a necessary ACC contest upon Countrywide Television set. The 2 groups achieved prior this time inside of Littlejohn Coliseum the place Virginia Tech pulled out an 82-81 victory about the Tigers because of towards a sturdy functionality in opposition to Seth Allen. Over-all, the sequence in between the 2 colleges is extremely even (Virginia Tech sales opportunities 17-15) and Clemson is made up of 4 highway victories underneath its belt towards the Hokies. The Tigers input the contest losers of 4 of their past 5 online games with 3 of people loses coming by way of 6 facts or a lot less, such as their highest latest outing in which they shed a 71-65 preference upon the street within Coral Gables towards the Miami Hurricanes upon Saturday afternoon https://www.clemsontigersfansshop.com/61-James_Skalski_Jersey. It is no coincidence that the Tigers existing struggles coincide with the absence of functionality towards 2 main gamers, Donte Grantham and Gabe DeVoe. Grantham contains all nevertheless position upon a disappearing act as of late as he is made up of manufactured basically 7 business objectives within just the last 5 video games, although taking pictures simply just 28% in opposition to the business all through that period and moving scoreless inside 2 of people contests. Upon the other finish, DeVoe contains long gone chilly in opposition to driving the arc, taking pictures simply 4-of-17 in opposition to 3 truth variety in just the last 5 game titles, yet is made up of produced his existence acknowledged upon the defensive glass inspite of dwindling minutes.

Thomas recorded his minute double-double within ACC engage in upon Saturday afternoon and contains taken higher than the part of setting up Centre for the Tigers earlier mentioned Sidy Djitte although advertising a lot expected scoring inside the report.

The Tigers preserved toward retain LeDay to some degree within just keep track of all through their past convention as he shed 16 info (mainly for the duration of one particular spurt) and will include toward continue to keep him off the offensive glass if they will need toward pull out a acquire upon the highway. The Virginia Tech participant towards check inside of this activity is Seth Allen. The sharpshooter versus Woodbridge, VA is coming off a 25 reality general performance upon the highway towards Louisville where by he went 6-of-8 versus at the rear of the arc.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.   Florida State quarterback Deondre Francois will miss the rest of the season after tearing the patellar tendon in his left knee in the fourth quarter Saturday night in a 24-7 loss to No. 1 Alabama in Atlanta. People familiar with the situation confirmed the injury to The Associated Press on Sunday night. They spoke on condition of anonymity because of the school medical information policy. The Tallahassee Democrat first reported the injury.                   Coach Jimbo Fisher is expected to have a further update, including when Francois is expected to have surgery, during his weekly press conference Monday. Fisher said after Saturday game that if Francois was out, James Blackman would likely be the starter. If Blackman starts for third-ranked Florida State on Saturday against Louisiana-Monroe https://www.seminolesteamfanshop.com/78-Seminoles_Joseph_Schergen_Jersey, it would be only the second time in school history a quarterback has started as a true freshman. The last time it happened was in 1985 when Chip Ferguson started against Miami. The Louisiana-Monroe game should give Fisher a good chance to evaluate all of his options before a Sept. 16 matchup against No. 18 Miami. Francois was hurt when he was sacked from behind by Ronnie Harrison. Francois was helped off the field and could not put any weight on his left knee before being carted off. The only diagnosis Fisher had after the game was unfortunately https://www.seminolesteamfanshop.com/121-Seminoles_Ryan_Izzo_Jersey, he hurt. Francois was on crutches and the left leg had an air cast applied to it after he received X-rays. To look back and see your quarterback holding his knee, it frightening, center Alec Eberle said. But at the same time, we know Deondre is a tough and persevering guy. Harrison, who grew up in Tallahassee, tweeted after the game that the hit was not intentional and hoped that Francois would make a quick recovery. Last season the Seminoles lost safety Derwin James after he injured his knee in the second game against Charleston Southern. Florida State proceeded to lose two of its next three games, including a 63-20 drubbing at Louisville. The Seminoles were also near the bottom of the national statistics in pass defense until turning things around the second half of the season to finish 10-3. Were not going to quit as a team and lay down, James said. It not just a one-game season. We have to show up ready to play. The quarterbacks find themselves in the same situation as last season secondary  light on depth and experience. Francois started all 13 games last season and threw for the fifth-most yards in school history . Of the four quarterbacks after Francois on the depth chart Josh Sweat Jersey, none of them have started a college game and have a combined 19 pass attempts. Junior J.J. Cosentino has played in five games the past two seasons. Also on the roster are true freshman Bailey Hockman and walk-on freshman Jake Rizzo. Fisher said during preseason drills that Blackman has picked up the offense quickly. He a very intelligent guy who shows a lot of poise, presence and command, Fisher said. He can throw the football and move around, too. Eberle also said he has full faith in Blackman and has been impressed with the way he can make calls at the line. Florida State College Football Playoff hopes were thought to be still strong even if it lost to Alabama, providing it could win out. Having Francois on the sidelines would make that road a lot tougher. The mood is we played pretty well but we didnt finish, said Eberle after the Alabama loss. We did too much to not finish. Weve got a long season ahead and now we have to do our jobs.

Tech Support / Arkansas vs Texas State Initial Takeaways
« on: September 27, 2018, 05:32:15 am »
The Hogs vs Texas State was the most boring beat-down Ive ever had the joy of watching. It was definitely not the game I thought it was going to be.So what do you get when you take one of the worst pass defenses in the nation and pit them against the second fastest team in the country Surprisingly, that bad defense delivers a monster victory of 42-3 Arkansas.I said before the game that it could be a closer game than what analysts thought. I said that Texas State, with all their speed, would cover the 31 point spread. Now I get to say, I was dead wrong.Article continues below ...Defensive ThoughtsOverall it was as vanilla as it gets. Not a whole lot to ooh and awe about from the Razorback offense but the defense looked like they were starting to come together. Especially the secondary.One standout player from the secondary tonight was Ryan Pulley. Not only did he have a pick six but he looked really solid. With him coming into his own and Ellis having great ball awareness, the Hogs might actually start causing more much-needed turnovers from the air Nate Dalton Jersey.Overall the Razorbacks held the Bobcats to 105 total yards. 83 of those yards came from the passing game with an average of 3.2 yards per pass. This is an important stat for the Hogs heading into AM this week. If they can keep jamming up receivers and stopping big pass plays, Arkansas may very well stand a chance.Offensive Thoughts It was cool to have Razorback legend and former quarterback Clint Stoerner in the booth doing the color commentating tonight. It was really cool that 98  of all plays https://www.razorbacksteamstore.com/143-Razorbacks_Tyson_Morris_Jersey, he made sure to remind us that the offensive line was a work in progress. He was the much-needed voice to calm me, as well as other fans when we were yelling at the T. because they looked so shaky.First-year offensive line coach, Kurt Anderson, was making moves and testing different players out in different spots to see what would fit. That cool and all but, they looked so out of wack most of the game. It was clear that Austin Allen was beginning to get frustrated as well he should. If they are going to hope to stand a chance against AMs pass rush next week, they need to get it fixed.Nothing In Particular ThoughtsThe main topic of our nothing in particular segment is Domonique Reed doing kick returns. Before you start the He the fastest guy on the team bit Silas Robinson Jersey, hear me out. He is fast, however, he is as skinny as Lindsay Lohan when she is hitting rock bottom from a decade-long coke addiction. Because of this, it seems like he is afraid to get hit and by avoiding one defender he just boxes himself in with the others.Next Predicting the SEC Week 3Overall, I was pretty happy with the game. Arkansas needed to beat these guys and beat them badly, which is exactly what they did. The Hogs dont have the luxury of, say Tennessee, barely beating these cupcake teams and still remaining in the top 25. Arkansas moves on 3-0 to face a 3-0 Texas AM team in Dallas in a week. Hopefully, the Hog train keeps rolling!

It very difficult to predict who is going to come out on top.Neither offense is exactly lethal, but the Terps do have significantly more talent than the Eagles. Quarterback Perry Hills is the true x-factor in this one.It was obvious how much Maryland missed him in the games that he missed. He completing 66 percent of his passes and is going to need to have a strong game against a very talented Boston College defense Justin Davidovicz Jersey.If Maryland offensive line can hold their own against Boston College front seven, the Terps can definitely win.Prediction Maryland wins 27-21Next Holiday BowlMinnesotaGolden GophersWashington StateCougarsNational Funding Holiday BowlMinnesota   Washington State Dec. 27  7 p.m., ESPNQualcomm Stadium, San DiegoAverage Line Wazzu, -6.5This is going to be a very interesting matchup Washington State high-octane offense against a Minnesota defense that was one of the better units in the Big Ten.The Golden Gophers possess a very strong running game that includes Rodney Smith and Shannon Brooks. The duo combined for 20 touchdowns throughout the regular season.The Cougars offense is going to be too much in this one. Quarterback Luke Falk tossed 37 touchdowns this season and is the definition of pinpoint-accurate .Prediction Washington State wins 41-20Next Pinstripe BowlPittPanthersNorthwesternWildcatsNew Era Pinstripe BowlNo. 23 Pittsburgh   Northwestern Dec. 28  2 p.m., ESPNYankee Stadium, Bronx, N.Y.Average Line Pitt, -5.5This is definitely going to be one of those games that will be a treat to watch even if you dont have a rooting interest Damon Hayes Jersey.James Conner  and Justin Jackson  are one of the more talented in the country and could be playing on Sundays in the near future.

The talent is still there with a talented group that includes running back Devine Redding.Indiana always seems to have a lethal back that makes it to the NFL. It been Tevin Coleman  and Jordan Howard  over the past two seasons and Redding is just as good.Richard Lagow may not be the most talented signal caller in the world, but he got the weapons to make things happen if he makes sound decisions.Utah did possess one of the better defenses in the Pac 12. Tailback Joe Williams is also a phenomenal story.Williams abruptly retired in September due to injuries, but returned to the Utes a month later. He finished with 1,185 yards and nine touchdowns. He rushed for 332 yards against UCLA earlier this season.Utah definitely was primed for a run at the College Football Playoff, but three losses in the last four games dashed those hopes. Colorado and Washington, a pair of top 10 teams, were two of those losses.However, this is still a very strong team that can hang with just about anybody.Prediction Utah wins 24-13Next Music City BowlNebraskaCornhuskersTennesseeVolunteersFranklin American Mortgage Music City BowlNebraska   No. 21 Tennessee Dec. 30  330 p.m., ESPNNissan Stadium, Nashville, Tenn.Average Line Tennessee, -3Nebraska and Tennessee could make for a very entertaining matchup.Both started off the season on fire and were off to 5-0 records. The Volunteers lost their next three games to Alabama, South Carolina, and Texas AM. The Cornhuskers dropped three of their last five games and lost to the likes of Ohio State and Wisconsin.The quarterback battle should be sensational as both Tommy Armstrong Jr. and Joshua Dobbs are threats to run.This one could be a matter of which team actually shows up.Prediction Tennessee wins 38-31Next Orange BowlMichiganWolverinesFlorida StateSeminolesCapital One Orange BowlNo. 6 Michigan   No. 11 Florida State Dec. 30  8 p.m., ESPNHard Rock Stadium, Miami Gardens, Fla.What a fall for Michigan.The Wolverines looked to be destined for the College Football Playoff, but an unfortunate call against Ohio State puts them in the Orange Bowl rather than the Fiesta Bowl. Still, Michigan still has the chance to finish a very successful season on a good note.Quarterback Wilton Speight was banged up towards the end of the season, but returned against the Buckeyes. He got three of the best targets around to toss the pigskin to in Jake Butt, Jehu Chesson, and Amara Darboh.On the other hand, the Seminoles are no slouch by any stretch.True freshman quarterback Deondre Francois looked like a stud at times. He had his bumps in the road, but ended up completing 60.6 percent of his passes and threw 18 touchdowns.Dalvin Cook is one of the top backs in the nation and arguably a future NFL star. He scored 18 touchdowns on the season and is a threat to take it to the house on any play.It safe to say that this one could be a shootout even with Michigan stout defense.Prediction Michigan wins 31-27Next Fiesta BowlOhio StateBuckeyesClemsonTigersCollege Football Playoff semifinal at the PlayStation Fiesta BowlNo Mamadou Doucoure Jersey. 3 Ohio State   No. 2 Clemson Dec. 31  7 p.m., ESPNUniversity of Phoenix Stadium, Glendale, Ariz.Average Line Ohio State, -3.5The Big Ten looked as though they could have two representatives in the College Football Playoff even after Michigan lost. However, Penn State was ultimately denied, so Ohio State is the only Big Ten program in the top four.Alabama could end up smoking Washington, but Clemson Ohio State could be a barnburner.It all going to come down to what quarterback makes the plays down the stretch https://www.scarletknightscollegeshop.com/132-Knights_Eugene_Omoruyi_Jersey. J.T. Barrett and Deshaun Watson are two of the best signal callers in the country and this one could be a shootout.The Buckeyes could also try to grind the Tigers down with their stellar running game that features Mike Weber and Curtis Samuel.Prediction Ohio State wins 31-28Next Outback BowlFloridaGatorsIowaHawkeyesOutback BowlNo. 17 Florida   Iowa Jan. 2  1 p.m., ABCRaymond James Stadium, Tampa, Fla.Average Line Florida, -2.5This was definitely a bit different of a season for Iowa.After racing out to a 12-0 mark, the Hawkeyes had their fair share of ups and downs in 2016. They dropped an early season contest to the Carson Wentz-less North Dakota State.Quarterback C.J. Beathard threw for 17 touchdowns and was supported by a strong cast of tailbacks that included LeShun Daniels Jr. and Akrum Wadley. The duo combined to rush for nearly 2,000 yards and 20 touchdowns.On the other hand, Florida had a pretty strong year as well.Purdue transfer Austin Appleby has played in relief of Luke Del Rio and done a solid job. He completing 61.4 percent of his passes and tossed five touchdowns over the final four regular season games.Something that should interest Maryland fans is Gators cornerback Jalen Tabor. Tabor has four interceptions on the year and been one of the top corners in the country.Prediction Florida wins 28-17Next Cotton BowlWestern MichiganBroncosWisconsinBadgersGoodyear Cotton Bowl ClassicNo. 15 Western Michigan   No. 8 Wisconsin Jan. 2  1 p.m., ESPNATT Stadium, Arlington, TexasAverage Line Wisconsin, -7.5It seems like every year that there that one non-Power Five school that goes undefeated and pushes the committee.Western Michigan was that team in 2016 as the Broncos won all 13 of their games. The Broncos did beat Illinois and Northwestern during nonconference play, but the rest was a slew of MAC teams.The one player that fans need to watch is Western Michigan wideout Corey Davis. Davis caught 91 passes for 1,427 yards and 18 touchdowns throughout the season https://www.scarletknightscollegeshop.com/178-Knights_Travis_Vokolek_Jersey.Davis is the all-time leading receiver in NCAA history. He accumulated 5,205 receiving yards during his four years with the Broncos.His ability to make plays after the catch is astounding. He should be a first round pick in April NFL Draft.Wisconsin nearly won the Big Ten title game before collapsing in the second half to Penn State.Still, this is a team that is loaded with talent.Running back Corey Clement is a joy to watch when he healthy. Clement racked up 1,304 yards and 14 touchdowns on the season and just flat-out makes plays.The Badgers possess a very stout defense that includes star T.J. Watt. Itll be interesting to see how they match up with Davis and the Broncos.Prediction Wisconsin wins 24-17Next Rose BowlUscTrojansPenn StateNittany LionsRose Bowl Game Presented by Northwestern MutualNo. 9 USC   No. 5 Penn State Jan. 2  5 p.m., ESPNRose Bowl, Pasadena, Calif.Average Line USC, -7Penn State was one of the more impressive stories in all of college football this season.After starting off the season with a 2-2 record, the Nittany Lions won their next nine games. The highlight was an upset of Ohio State in Happy Valley and a win over Wisconsin in the Big Ten title game.Saquon Barkley is one of the top running backs in the Big Ten and maybe even the country. Quarterback Trace McSorley has also been a pleasant surprise and is one of the more dangerous dual-threat signal callers around.Flip the script and USC has gone on a similar roll in 2016.The Trojans started out 1-3 with early season losses at the hands of Alabama, Stanford, and Utah. Instead of letting the year slip away, they ripped off eight consecutive wins, including over top 10 teams like Colorado and Washington.True freshman quarterback Sam Darnold is part of the reason for that as he tossed 26 touchdowns this season. It also doesnt hurt that he has a phenomenal target to throw to in wideout Juju Smith Schuster.This is going to be one of the most fun Rose Bowls in quite some time.

CORAL GABLES, Fla. Mark Richt needed help to figure out which way he should be driving, accidentally said Georgia once when meaning to say Miami and barely recognized his former campus Austin Pfenninger Jersey.Otherwise, he felt right at home.Dressed in an orange-and-green tie and sporting a lapel pin in the shape of the school distinctive U logo, Richt returned to his roots Friday when he was announced as Miami new coach. Contract terms for the former Hurricane quarterback were not disclosed, but the 55-year-old Richt said he expects this job to be his last.Article continues below ...GRADING CFB COACHING HIRESThe carousel ramped up extra-early this season, and italso winding down much sooner than normal. Time to evaluate the winners and losers. I do understand what expected, Richt said. And really, I dont want to make a lot of promises, other than I want to promise that were going to get to work and were going to earn the right for victory.His contract is not finalized, though Miami athletic director Blake James said he and Richt have agreed to terms. As a private institution, Miami does not have to release contract information and James would not reveal details Thomas Burns Jersey. Richt was making $4 million annually at Georgia, where he won 145 games as head coach over the last 15 seasons before the sides parted ways earlier this week.When Richt left Georgia  officially by mutual agreement, a term Richt took a playful and telling swipe at Friday  he thought about taking a year off to catch his football breath. Miami had reached out not long after it fired Al Golden in October to gauge Richt interest in possibly returning to his alma mater.When the Hurricanes called again, Richt  who had been approached by Miami multiple times in the past when the school had coaching openings  knew he couldnt say no.When you coach, you want to go to a place where youve got a chance to do big things, Richt said. By virtue of the fact that it been done here before, that a good indicator. By virtue of the fact that it has one of the most fertile recruiting areas in the United States of America, that another factor.And then I knew this job wouldnt be open next year, Richt added.From there, the deal came together easily and Richt was back at the school where he was a teammate of Jim Kelly, Bernie Kosar and Vinny Testaverde in the early 1980s. Richt last collegiate season was 1982, one year before Howard Schnellenberger led Miami to the first of what became five national titles in a 19-season span.Testaverde, whose son Vincent is a backup quarterback at Miami now, was part of the search committee that ultimately brought Richt home.I know he going to be a great role model for my boy, for our kids, he going to be a great person and a great teacher, Vinny Testaverde said https://www.hurricanescollegeteamshop.com/59-Hurricanes_Josh_Johnson_Jersey. And that what these kids need.LATEST FROM FOX SPORTSCam Newton hooks a young fan up with a gift after rushing for a touchdownJakeem Grant takes kickoff 101 yards to the house as Dolphins down TitansAdrian Peterson rushes for 100th career touchdown in Washington win over his former CardinalsEmmanuel Sanders leaps into the endzone to complete 67-yard touchdown as the Broncos hold off SeattleVikings return Jimmy Garoppolo interception for a touchdownRicht went 19-3 against Atlantic Coast Conference opponents when he was at Georgia, and Miami can only hope that trend continues. The Hurricanes moved into the ACC 12 seasons ago, and still are looking for their first league title.Football is not part of what we do here, Miami President Julio Frenk said. It is part of who we are.Miami has gone since 2001 without a national title, since 2003 without a 10-win season and since 2006 without a bowl win.Richt mandate is simple Change all that.I cant wait to get started, Richt said.Richt inherits a team that went 8-4 in this regular season, has an elite quarterback in Brad Kaaya, had 91 percent of its points this season come from players who could be back with the Hurricanes in 2016 if they so choose, and finished with four wins in five games under interim coach Larry Scott  who met with Richt early Friday and wants to be part of the new staff.I think it the best possible candidate we could have gotten, Kaaya said of Richt. He a good dude.

Oregon Ducks Head Coach Mark Helfrich set to discuss future mid-week with Athletic Director Rob Mullens.Watching Head Coach Mark Helfrich on Sunday Morning was painful. He looked like a man who had lost the war and had no sense of direction with where the ship was going. He lost the power to steer, but was at the wheel anyway answering questions from the media as best he could about his future and the future of Oregon Ducks Football.When there is a decision to be made one would think that the decision maker would at least make an appearance, but Athletic Director Rob Mullens mailed it in instead. Mullens has an obligation to the College Football Playoff and will be out of town for several days. The plan is to meet mid-week.Article continues below ...We are a very oung football team, a very injury riddled football team right now that played a tough schedule and all those things are going to be better.Helfrich recapping the 2016 SeasonMore from Autzen ZooOregon Ducks Start Season 6-1 https://www.ducksfanscollegeshop.com/112-Ducks_Taylor_Alie_Jersey, Sabrina Ionescu Scores Triple-Double12h agoCould Oregon Ducks Settle On Retaining Mark Helfrich23h agoOregon State Runs Away With Civil War Over Oregon Ducks1 d agoOregon Ducks vs Oregon State Look-In Preview, Scoring Updates and In Game Analysis1 d agoOregon Ducks Keep Pace, But Lose To Mississippi State1 d agoThe Oregon Ducks held their end of year Banquet on Sunday afternoon. Following the festivities, the coaches headed out to recruit since the Oregon Ducks season is over at 4-8. It would have made sense for Mullens to have completed his evaluation of the team and made his decision right My thought is he is either waiting for a better deal to come to him or it may just be a matter of patting Helfrich on the back with the blessing of a better 2017.My thought is for the latter. Why would you allow coaches to celebrate a bad season and then pick-up and recruit to just call them all back and fire them on the spotHelfrich deserved better. He handled the situation with total class, answering every question and admitting his own fault with the 2016 season in the process. He had a culpable moment or two. He showed vulnerability and possibly for the first time this season that he too is human https://www.ducksfanscollegeshop.com/102-Ducks_Royce_Freeman_Jersey, a side rarely seen from him.The 4-8 season is now over for the Oregon Ducks and along with Helfrich we are also standing on the ship waiting to see he he returns to steer the ship into calmer seas.
