|ESPN.com: ACC||[Print without images]|
Let's face it. It's July, and no news is usually good news for college football teams right now. However, there's always something going on, and here it is:
Dolphin Stadium president Bruce Schulze told the Miami Herald he's willing to do "whatever it takes" to make the folks at the University of Miami happy with their transition to Dolphin Stadium. But when college teams share pro venues, it still feels like the home of the NFL (see Minnesota, which is why it is building a new stadium).
Considering just about everything Miami will be "removable," this sounds like it will have the same feel.
Watching Miami play on a home field without the "U" on the 50-yard line or "Miami" in the end zone will be like watching a magician work without his wand.
The good news? Alcohol will be sold until the end of halftime. And if things start out in Dolphin Stadium the way they ended at the Orange Bowl, odds are you're gonna need it.
Elsewhere in ACC country, the Columbia State had a quick report on the latest battle between Clemson and USC, but they're not the only ones in the country wooing the young QB from Indy. It appears Tommy Bowden is in the lead, but he already has a guy on his roster with the potential to eventually pass Willy Korn.
I'll have more on the ACC's top freshmen to watch this season later today.
