The ACC Network launches at 7 p.m. today, with a two-hour special that will share “the passion, history, innovation and excellence of the ACC.” Heisman Trophy winner and former New York Knick Charlie Ward will be part of the special, so rest assured that Florida State will at least be mentioned once over the course of the two hours.
Florida State head coach Willie Taggart was a big focus of an article by The Undefeated looking at an NCAA program is looking to help black coaches further secure bigger opportunities.
