Rodney Hood officially declared for the NBA Draft on Friday. The announcement comes a day after his former teammate Jabari Parker declared also. Hood was suspected to be leaning that way for quite a while.
It’s the college football off-season so that’s the time for opinions galore on teams, players and of course coaches. We’ll be doing that during the course spring and summer starting with the coaches. Coming off the 2014 season who’s the ACC’s number 1 coach? This isn’t a career based ranking, though it’s not completely ignored either. As with anything it’s a what have you done for lately world.
Here is an interesting piece from CBSSportsline’s Dennis Dodd titled “Expect ACC to play an influential role as playoff era begins” that was written a couple of days ago. Dodds looks at where the ACC was 2 years ago and then at the conference’s promising future. It is fascinating to remember realignment-palooza of 2012. There were some that felt that ACC was in real danger of falling apart.
I swear I've had it up to here already. I've come to the conclusion that something had to fill the void of conference realignment, and that something is college athlete compensation. I figure it that way because I'm already darn sick of it and because so much stupidity gets tossed around with no critical thinking attached, and whatever comes out the back end of this sausage-making process is going to be much less desirable from a fan perspective than when we started.
