Bourbon Shots: Springing Around the ACC Edition

Important Announcements

Andrew C. Marsh Memorial Golf Tournament (BC Interruption)
If there are any Hokies in New England who want a fun afternoon of golf to raise money for a worthy cause, I encourage you to participate in the Andrew C. Marsh Fund Golf Tournament. It honors a friend of Brian and Jeff's and raises money for scholarships and cancer research.

Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes (The 7th Floor)
A tearful farewell to The Great Barstoolio, who is leaving SBN's Miami blog. Barstoolio was one of the first guests on Joe and I's old podcast and honestly ran circles around us. Barstoolio was an original and made The 7th Floor the swagginest blog on SBN. They'll be missed.

ACC Coastal

Dade County Spring Scrimmage Reaction (The 7th Floor)
Wide receiver Tommy Streeter has established himself as the next Canes' deep threat. On defense, Miami is undersized at linebacker and its secondary was burned by its wide receivers.

Notes from the Dade County Scrimmage (Eye of the Hurricane)
The Canes have "embraced" Al Golden as their head coach and look "intense" on defense. Once again, the Canes are talented and have a lot of speed and hard-hitters on D. Once again, it will be up to the O-line and QB to get Miami over the hump.

Spring Game: One Hour Of Not Much (Tar Heel Fan)
If you blinked, you missed Saturday's UNC spring "game." Quarterback Bryn Renner looked solid in the short time the Heels actually scrimmaged.

ACC Atlantic

Boston College Football Completes Second Spring Scrimmage (BC Interruption)
The Boston College football team completed its second intrasquad scrimmage of the spring. Mike Marscovetra led all quarterbacks, completing 6-of-11 for 128 yards and a touchdown. Marsco had a big spring last year as well. Seems like he just can't get that to translate in the fall.

2011 Projected WF Spring Football 2-Deep for Offense (Blogger So Dear)
BSD had a lot of quarterbacks to choose from for its depth chart, but went with returning starter Tanner Price. Wake has struggled on offense so far this spring, but returns plenty of talent in the backfield.

Impressions of 2011 Orange & White Game (Shakin The Southland)
STS didn't like what it saw out of Clemson's defense, particularly the tackling from the front seven. And while most Tiger fans are down on their new offense, STS saw a team that ran the offense at the desired tempo and was able to get plays off quickly and smoothly.

Spring Game Recap (Block-C)
The guys at Block-C were pleased with the running game during the Tigers' Orange-White game. However, they have a lot of room for improvement in their new fast-paced offense with a new offensive coordinator and new quarterback.

Edsall: C.J. Brown pushing Danny O'Brien (D1scourse)
Danny O'Brien will almost assuredly be Maryland's starting quarterback in 2011. But has done enough early in spring practice that new head coach Randy Edsall says there's pressure on the 2010 ACC rookie of the year to step his game up the rest of spring.


Random Spring Thoughts: ECU (Pre-Snap Read)
Like most of the teams Coach Ruff was around in Lubbock, ECU is going to have a 10-2 offense and a 6-6 defense. This of course means that the Pirates are going to go 8-4, just like Texas Tech did every year it didn't have Crab.
