Swofford: ACC has "foundation for the future"

Swofford: ACC has

While basketball has recently moved to 20 conference games to facilitate rivalries and home-and-home division games, football will remain at eight conference games for a while. The league has college football's reigning champion (Clemson) and Heisman Trophy victor (Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson), and handfuls of huge nonconference wins in the last five years that include three national championship game appearances and two titles.

The coaches preached about the conference's depth, diversity, and talent.

The Atlantic Division (FSU, Louisville, NC State, Syracuse, Boston College, Wake Forest and Clemson) will make the rounds on Thursday, with The Coastal Division (Virginia, Duke, Pittsburgh, Virginia Tech, Miami, Georgia Tech and North Carolina) following on Friday.

"I don't know where we will end up on that", ACC commissioner John Swofford said Thursday.

"Heck no, I'm not predicting a victor", Swinney said.

Dabo Swinney is entering his ninth full season as head coach of the Tigers and 10 season overall.

The proposal is the unusual confluence of a well-intentioned effort to give players more time off during the season and a way to create another weekend to sell college football. Swinney said people should be focusing on what's to come, not what they've already accomplished. That's kind of what we did. "But with the changing technology that's out there and what that means to our league and to college athletics and to our institutions, I think we have to really factor in life as it exists today and evaluate the past and how we've done things, and does it fit for the future".

"The past year certainly was one of the league's most successful years - and possibly the most successful year the league has had", he said. Clemson defensive tackle Christian Wilkins said.

Lamar Jackson: "No, I don't really worry about it".

The Wolfpack's defensive front includes depth that includes six seniors, so a unit that ranked high a year ago could be even stingier.

Can Florida State's five-game winning streak continue through personnel losses, spring ball, the offseason, the implementation of a new recruiting class, and most daunting of all, Alabama? Jackson said that while he is honored by his personal accolades, he more interested in team success. After coming up short to Alabama in the College Football Playoff Championship for the 2015 season, the Tigers got the job done last season to claim the national title.

Alabama and Florida State could be ranked No. 1 and No. 2 to open the season. I think all of us in this league pull for each other.

Fisher said it will be a great litmus test to see where his team stands early in the season.

"That game was insane", Francois said, adding emphasis between syllables. The Seminoles have two options for a rushing attack in Jaques Patrick and Cam Akers.

The big news at the 2016 ACC Kickoff had to do with the agreement with ESPN about a new ACC Network.

Many teams are starting practice this month under a one-year waiver that accompanied the overdue elimination of two-a-day practices, but it could become standard practice under a proposal to spread the 12-game regular season over 14 weeks.

Under Fisher, Florida State has never lost its first game of the season - but neither has Alabama under head coach Nick Saban. It's because the best program of the modern era is playing another powerhouse, one with three national championships and three Heismans over the last quarter-century.
