Football:

Chip Patterson of CBS Sports ranked the top ten players in the ACC and he had Marvin Wilson fifth overall.

Wilson could have been a first round NFL Draft pick in 2020, and before the first snap of the season his return has already created long-lasting change at Florida State and within the Tallahassee community. His willingness to take a stand and strive for change within the program was acknowledged by Mike Norvell and his role as one of the leaders in the locker room make him one of the keys to the Seminoles’ buy-in with their new coach. But after an offseason filled with off-field headlines, Wilson will be back at it when the season reminding everyone why he was considered a potential first round defensive lineman in last year’s draft class.

For the most part; the highest paid coaches in football and basketball aren’t taking paycuts yet.

Lots of QB talent in the ACC should lead to some fun match-ups; the last time the league was this deep at quarterback was 2016.

For coaches on the hot seat the coronavirus might give them a chance for a do-over.
