Notre Dame to ACC: Short Term Win, Long Term Disaster?

On Wednesday, September 12, 2012 the University of Notre Dame officially became a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference. All of Notre Dame’s athletic programs, except for football, will fully compete in the ACC. Starting in 2013, all other ACC football programs will play 9 conference games each year, while Notre Dame’s football program will compete in only 5. This special arrangement allows the Fighting Irish to keep their football independence, while initiating a severely impactful culture change in the ACC. A culture of concessions and special treatment for Notre Dame will negatively impact many future situations the conference will encounter. This type of culture will weaken the ACC in the long run.

'Will the state of Florida rise again?' Adelson interviews Fisher

ESPN's Andrea Adelson provides a Q&A with Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher. 'The pressure people put on me isn’t close to the pressure I put on myself.' In a related feature Adelson discusses the Sunshine State's Big Three. She again offers comments by the Seminoles' head coach. "Consistency in head coaching and staffs," Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher said when asked the single-biggest reason the three rose at once. "Miami had the most rotation, but Steve and Bobby were here forever, and their staffs very rarely changed, just a guy or two every blue moon. They got ahead and got that momentum. … It's a matter of teams establishing winning and keeping the local players home." http://espn.go.com/college-football/story/_/id/7783894/will-miami-hurricanes-florida-gators-florida-state-seminoles-rise-again

FSU Athletics Posting Video Series about Bill Peterson Era

Part 1 is up now. Parts 2 and 3 will follow shortly. FSU is releasing this video to honor the 50th anniversary of the start of Bill Peterson's tenure at FSU. 2010 would also have marked Bobby Bowden's 35th season at FSU had he stayed, but with Bowden's remarks on recent press tour, where he has repeatedly portrayed FSU in a negative light both in print and on national TV, it appears that FSU has decided to honor its other great coach. Mentioned in the video: A) Peterson getting FSU's first home and away wins over the Gators. 2) Bowden quoted as learning from Coach Peterson while an assistant at FSU. D) An interview with NFL and Peterson-era QB Gary Huff speaking about how advanced his system was. All extremely classy stuff and very well done with great interviews, archival footage, and high production values. The big takeaway here is that FSU is proud to honor its great football tradition and the legacy of all its winning coaches. FSU has definitely taken the high road out of the Bowden era. Much more so than Bowden himself.
