The NFL draft combine at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis will be held from Feb. 19-25 and will feature workouts, medical examinations, psychological testing and interviews for the 335 invited prospects. The ACC has a total of 46 players who will participate, including at least one player from every school (we included Maryland and not Louisville in this post, because it is from the 2013 season). National champion Florida State led the league with eight players heading to the combine, but UNC was right behind with seven. Don't cry ... you're gonna miss some of these names next year. Good luck to these guys.

Spring answers:

1. The players are buying in. First-year coach Steve Addazio said the one thing he felt great about this spring was the team’s willingness to adjust to the staff and its changes. “This is a group of guys that really took well to tough coaching, to accountability, to the concept that we need to be a real team and we need to be accountable to each other, and build some physical and mental toughness.”

2. Running back Andre Williams can be a star. Addazio has made the running game a priority, and Williams is going to have to carry the load, especially after the departure of Rolandan Finch. “I thought Andre had one of the best springs of anybody,” Addazio said. “… I just really am impressed by him.”

3. Ryan Day helped ease the transition on offense. The Eagles’ first-year offensive coordinator was previously on staff as the receivers’ coach, so the players had an easier time adapting to yet another change in coordinator. For Rettig, Day is his fourth coordinator, but no introductions were necessary.

Fall questions:

1. Depth across the board. Addazio said “depth is a problem right now” and it put the staff in a predicament this spring because they wanted to promote toughness, but also keep guys healthy. While he did say the staff “developed the lineup up front,” the team can’t afford injuries to key players.

2. Can the defense get back to its traditionally stingy self? BC returns eight of its top nine tacklers from last season, but the defense has been learning a new attacking scheme under first-year coordinator Don Brown. Things can only get better, as BC ranked No. 111 in rushing defense last season, and No. 100 in total defense. How quickly the Eagles improve, though, depends upon the learning curve this summer.

3. The running game. It was nonexistent last season. While BC’s top running back proved to be dependable this spring, there are still plenty of questions behind him, and this goes back to the issue of depth in No. 1. The Eagles still have Tahj Kimble and David Dudek, but the two combined for 58 carries last season, when BC’s rushing offense was No. 115 in the country.
Miami coach Al Golden said Thursday that backup linebacker Gabe Terry has been dismissed from the team, following the news last week that Terry was charged with felony marijuana possession.

Terry played as a backup last season, and previously served a suspension at the end of the year for undisclosed reasons.

"He was suspended before the incident,” Golden said on the ACC coaches' call. "We’ve separated and are going in another direction."

Terry is the third linebacker the Hurricanes have lost since the season ended. Eddie Johnson, who also was serving a suspension this spring, has decided to transfer to junior college. Gionni Paul mutually parted ways with the team in January. He had seven starts and 61 tackles last season, finishing third on the team.

Here are a few other newsworthy notes from the coaches' call:
  • Boston College coach Steve Addazio confirmed that defensive tackle Kaleb Ramsey has received a sixth year of eligibility. Ramsey missed a majority of the last two seasons with various injuries. Addazio, however, says Ramsey is now healthy and seems thrilled with his potential. "He’s an elite defensive lineman," Addazio said. "He’s the kind of guy I was used to seeing in the SEC. He’s a guy that’s very physical, very powerful, he’s athletic and really was very disruptive in the spring so we have high expectations for him."
  • Syracuse coach Scott Shafer had one of the best lines of the entire call when asked about his quarterback competition between Terrel Hunt, Charley Loeb and John Kinder. "Someone asked me the other day if it's controversial," Shafer recalled. "I said, 'Hell yeah' we have a quarterback controversy. We don't know who we're starting yet."
  • North Carolina coach Larry Fedora said if the season began today, A.J. Blue would be his starting running back, replacing All-ACC performer Giovani Bernard. Fedora praised Blue's emergence as a team leader, but he also said Romar Morris had the best spring among the backs. At this point, it probably doesn't matter who starts. Both guys are going to see a lot of playing time. Watch out for freshman Khris Francis, too.

Injuries already adding up for BC

August, 14, 2012

PM ET
Boston College sophomore cornerback Al Louis-Jean injured his left foot on Monday and is expected to miss several games, the school announced on Tuesday.

The news comes just days after BC announced veteran tight end Chris Pantale is out with a broken foot. Pantale had surgery on Monday and will miss about eight weeks, according to the school.

These are the excuses BC fans won't want to hear about come November, but there's no question injuries to key players have played a role in the team's struggles. Coach Frank Spaziani has had numerous injuries to deal with during his tenure as head coach, including to former running back Montel Harris. Last year, five players suffered season-ending injuries, and BC applied for medical hardship waivers for Harris and defensive tackle Kaleb Ramsey.

Louis-Jean has only started two games, but he entered summer camp competing with C.J. Jones for the starting field corner job. BC's secondary is filled with sophomores trying to make names for themselves.

Louis-Jean played in 10 games as a true freshman last fall and recorded 15 tackles, three pass break-ups, one interception and one forced fumble. Pantale, one of four elected team captains, sustained his injury last week. He has 77 career receptions for 797 yards and five touchdowns in 38 career starts over the last three seasons.

Kaleb Ramsey stretches into shape

This past offseason, Boston College defensive tackle Kaleb Ramsey dedicated himself to getting into the best shape of his life.

He did this in some pretty unconventional ways.

First, he started seeing stretching specialist Bob Cooley as a way to become more flexible and avoid many of the injuries that have hurt him in the past. Ramsey missed nearly all of 2011 as he recovered from plantar fasciitis in his left foot, and was granted a waiver to be able to play this season. After seeing the results punter Gerald Levano got in his sessions with Cooley, Ramsey decided to join up with offensive tackle Emmett Cleary.

"I’ve seen the improvement in his body and how flexibile he is, so I figured I’d give it a try," Ramsey said. "It's my last year, so I’m going to go all out for my body to make sure I can have the best season."

Before you read on, erase any notion you have of stretching. We are not talking about raising your arms into the sky and breathing deep. Cooley puts Ramsey and Cleary through some intense 2 to 3 hour workouts, and when they are done, they are drenched in sweat.

Much of the stretching focus is on resistance. Ramsey explains.

"[Cooley] puts your body in all different types of positions because your muscles aren’t used to working a certain way," Ramsey said. "So when you are put in those positions, you're able to handle it. He puts your legs all the way back and you have to go against somebody else to try to keep your legs from going back. The stretching, it’s not like casual stretching. It’s a good workout."

Ramsey already has felt a difference, saying, "I feel like I’ve changed my body. I'm in the best shape I’ve ever been in. Being hurt last year taught me a lesson -- not to take anything for granted."

As for improving his technique, Ramsey said defensive line coach Jeff Comissiong brought in a sensei to work with every lineman on his hand work. It was not the first time Ramsey worked with a sensei -- he took karate two years ago -- but he did get a lot out of the drills.

"It’s definitely beneficial because you get used to using your hands, which on the D-line that’s all you do -- it’s a hand battle with the offensive lineman in front of you," Ramsey said. "[The sensei] teaches us to use offensive linemen against them for leverage, where he’s most vulnerable, where to strike to make sure it inflicts the most pain, so he’s a little bit weary of putting your hands on you again. It helps you be more precise with where you put your hands."

Ramsey said the defensive linemen practiced their new skills against the Boston College offensive linemen all summer, and noticed an improvement. Boston College has put a huge emphasis on playing better up front, particularly on pass rush. The Eagles only had 11 total sacks last year.

Having Ramsey back helps. He also is expected to provide leadership, after being selected one of the four team captains for this season by his teammates, who clearly have seen how hard he has worked after sitting out last year.

"It wasn’t easy seeing my team out there every weekend, knowing I should be out there to help them win," Ramsey said. "But it definitely humbled me, made me more appreciative of the game because I realized any second the game can be taken away. It made me more hungry for this season coming up. I’m ready to go."

Three questions for ... ACC blogger Heather Dinich:

Coach Frank Spaziani and players talked a lot this spring about how the worst thing to happen in the 2011 season was the campaign ending, as BC made strides late. Is it possible to build off that momentum in 2012?



Heather Dinich: BC doesn’t have much choice but to answer that with an emphatic ‘yes’ because the Eagles open the season against Miami. That game will set the tone for both programs, and we’ll learn a lot about both of them in Week 1. Voting members of the media picked BC to finish fifth in the Atlantic Division this fall, ahead of only Maryland. The key to whether or not they surpass that is how quickly the offense executes the playbook of yet another offensive coordinator. Offensive lineman Emmett Cleary told me at media days that too much has been made of the turnover at the coordinator position -- that it’s just football and they can learn it. That’s coming from a BC offensive lineman, though -- they’re smart guys. The lack of continuity there will be a factor for some players.



All-everything players Montel Harris and Luke Kuechly are gone, but there is plenty of depth both in the backfield and at linebacker. Can those units maintain production this season?



HD: There’s talent and depth at both positions. Of course, BC would like to have the ACC’s record-setting running back on its roster, but the Eagles will survive without him, especially since the offensive line should be one of the more improved units on the roster. Rolandan Finch and Andre Williams combined to rush for 1,222 yards and seven touchdowns last year. Tahj Kimble had 43 carries and eight catches. At linebacker, nobody can replace Kuechly, but Steele Divitto is sure gonna try. Kevin Pierre-Louis could also be one of the more talented linebackers in the ACC.



Given recent seasons, staff turnover and the mysterious dismissing of Harris, it would appear -- at least on the surface -- to be a do or die year for Spaziani. How does BC respond this year?

HD: Yes, I think his job is on the line. The Eagles, at the very least, must go bowling for Spaz to keep his seat cool. At least that’s my guess. I have little doubt that BC responds like it always does -- with a chip on its shoulder. Spaziani told me at ACC media days that he has a chip on HIS shoulder, and those are the types of players BC recruits, too -- solid, hard-working, blue-collar guys who simply love the game. They’ll play for anybody. BC might not be the best team in the ACC, but you can always expect the Eagles’ best effort.

Spring answers

1. Chase Rettig makes strides: Rettig was thrown into the fire early, and he has endured plenty since, with injuries, new schemes and last year's 4-8 campaign. Now a junior, and playing for another new offensive coordinator, Rettig has the command of the offense and should benefit from playing behind an experienced offensive line.

2. More running back depth than BC probably hoped for: Montel Harris and Andre Williams couldn't go in the spring game. Then Tahj Kimble injured himself early in the contest. Finch, who played a lot last season with Harris sidelined, ended up shouldering the load, and it will take a group effort this season with Harris out of the picture. Injuries and a dismissal gave BC a better look at its backfield talent than it had probably hoped for, but the group effort this spring should benefit the Eagles come fall.

3. Defense looking to build off 2011 finish: Coach Frank Spaziani said the worst thing about last season was that it ended. BC is hungry to build off its 4-8 campaign, as the team hopes to carry the momentum from winning two of its final three games. A long offseason gave the defense time to think about that finish, which was keyed by a unit that held each of the final three opponents to fewer than 20 points.

Fall questions

1. Who will replace Luke Kuechly? The short answer is no one. Kuechly's legend will only continue to grow with each passing day. But the Eagles do return plenty of talented linebackers, led by Steele Divitto and Kevin Pierre-Louis. It will take a collective effort and then some for the linebackers to make up for the loss of Kuechly, but their attitude in trying can certainly rub off on the rest of the defense.

2. What happened with Harris? The school's all-time leading rusher was dismissed from the team after the spring for a repeated violation of team rules. The backfield is used to playing without him after his injury-plagued 2011 campaign, but the suddenness of Harris' departure -- which Spaziani will not get into -- has to have some effect on his former teammates, especially with Harris having been primed to chase the ACC's career rushing record this season.

3. How will the offense transition under Doug Martin? Spaziani said he was impressed with the unit coming out of the spring, but a fifth offensive coordinator in five years has to be challenging for the players. Martin has said he is looking to increase the pace, and he'll have nine starters back to work with come preseason camp.

Week 11: Did you know?

November, 11, 2011
11/11/11

PM ET
Thanks as always to the sports information directors throughout the league for this week’s package of notes:

ACC: With Virginia Tech RB David Wilson, North Carolina RB Giovani Bernard, and Miami RB Lamar Miller leading the way, the ACC could set a league record for the most 100-yard rushing games in a single season in its history. Heading into Saturday, ACC runners have reached or surpassed the 100-yard mark in rushing on 47 occasions led by Wilson (9), Bernard (6) and Miller (6). The league mark of 55 100-yard rushing games was set last year. What makes this year’s total even more impressive is the fact that Boston College’s Montel Harris, who personally has 22 career 100-yard games, has contributed just one to the total this season due to an injury which has forced him to miss almost the entire 2011 season.

BOSTON COLLEGE: In BC’s 38-7 home loss to Florida State, a season-high 10 players were sidelined with injuries. In addition to the five players who have suffered season-ending injuries – WR Ifeanyi Momah (knee), DB C.J. Jones (knee), DL Connor Wujciak (shoulder), RB Montel Harris (knee) and DL Kaleb Ramsey (foot) – five veterans have suffered various recent injuries. They include senior OL Nate Richman, redshirt freshman RB Tahj Kimble, sophomore LB Kevin Pierre-Louis, junior DB Jim Noel and sophomore RB Andre Williams.

CLEMSON: The Tigers have defeated Wake Forest 23 of the past 25 meetings in Death Valley and have not lost to Wake Forest at home since 1998. Clemson has a 6-0 record at home this year and an average victory of 41-25. A win Saturday would also give Clemson a 7-0 record at home this year, the program’s first perfect home season since 1990 when Clemson was 6-0 in Death Valley.

DUKE: Duke has played five one-possession games (decided by eight points or less) this season with an average margin of difference of 2.40 points. The five games are tied for the third most in the nation. Duke’s 2.40 average is the sixth lowest nationally among schools that have played at least three one-possession games, with Buffalo ranking first at 1.67 average points in three games.

FLORIDA STATE: In 2011, 15 true freshmen have played, tied for the seventh-most among all FBS teams. The ‘Noles have played 11 redshirt freshmen for a total of 26 freshmen played. That number is tied for third among FBS schools, trailing only Clemson and Indiana, with 29 each. Five FSU true freshmen–-C Austin Barron, RB Devonta Freeman, WR Rashad Greene, OT Bobby Hart, and TE Nick O’Leary – have made starts, along with redshirt freshman QB Clint Trickett. FSU played 12 true freshmen in 2010 and 12 redshirt freshmen for a whopping 40 freshmen who have played to this point over the past two seasons.

GEORGIA TECH: The Jackets have allowed a 100-yard rusher in a game five times this season (all five have been ACC opponents). David Wilson’s rushing total (175 yards) was the most by a Tech opponent since 2009.

MARYLAND: WR Quintin McCree had his second career 100-yard receiving game with 117 yards against Virginia. It was also McCree’s second 100-yard effort in his last three games. WR Kerry Boykins also had the first of his career with 101 yards in Saturday’s Virginia game. McCree and Boykins are just the second Maryland duo in the past 16 years to post 100 receiving yards in the same game. Danny Oquendo (111) and Torrey Smith (115) both went over 100 receiving yards against Boston College on Nov. 29, 2008. Prior to that, the feat hadn’t occurred since 1995.

MIAMI: With his 202-yard performance against Duke on Nov. 5, Jacory Harris remains in second place in Miami’s records book with 8,097 career passing yards, surpassing Gino Torretta and trailing only Ken Dorsey (9,565).

NORTH CAROLINA: North Carolina has never had a 1,000-yard runner and 1,000-yard receiver in the same season. Last week at NC State, Bernard became the 15th player in UNC history to rush for 1,000 yards in a season and the first since Jonathan Linton in 1997. Heading into the Virginia Tech game, senior wide receiver Dwight Jones, who has 913 receiving yards, needs 87 yards to become just the second player in UNC history with 1,000 receiving yards in a single season.

NC STATE: Tom O’Brien has won 42 games in BC’s Alumni Stadium, but is looking for his first win there as a visitor.

VIRGINIA: The Cavaliers enter Saturday’s game at Duke tied for third in the ACC in total offense at 427.7 yards per game. UVa is tied for 13th nationally with just eight sacks allowed this season (312 pass attempts). OG Austin Pasztor along with OT Oday Aboushi, OG Luke Bowanko, C Anthony Mihota and OT Morgan Moses have started all nine games this season. The only other ACC teams to start the same offensive line this year are NC State and Virginia Tech. The last time the same five players started an entire season on the offensive line at UVa was 2004. Coincidentally, that was the last time UVa averaged more rushing yards (242.8) per game than this year (190.1).

VIRGINIA TECH: The two rushing touchdowns by quarterback Logan Thomas against Georgia Tech gave him eight for the season, tying the single-season record for rushing touchdowns by a Tech quarterback. In 1999, Michael Vick rushed for eight touchdowns (he had another in the Sugar Bowl, but the NCAA didn’t count bowl statistics then). Thomas finished with 70 yards rushing,

WAKE FOREST: Wake Forest had come away with points on 11 straight trips to the red zone over four games heading into the Notre Dame game. Wake scored touchdowns on each of its first two trips to the red zone against Notre Dame and held a 17-10 halftime lead. But Wake’s string of 13 consecutive scoring trips came to a close when the Deacons failed on both red zone visits in the second half. The drives ended with a Brandon Pendergrass fumble at the Notre Dame nine-yard line and a missed field goal by PK Jimmy Newman.
