But, we digress.
Since TAH isn’t a traditional ACC sports site, we aren’t gonna get all bogged down in preseason previews. You can catch that at ESPN, Yahoo or Rivals.com. We just stick to the high points – like what is the most important question TODAY on the minds of ACC football fans.
Let’s see…Is it:
Which genius at UVA thought it was a smart idea to open with USC?
Will FSU ever find another QB who can throw the ball farther than 23 yards accurately (the key word being accurately?) And if they find him, can Coach Bowden remember the kids name before the end of his junior season?
Will Butch Davis make the Heels competitive in year 2 or will he have to mow Roy’s lawn again?
How many QBs can Ralph Friedgen play in one game?
Can Paul Johnson use his Navy rushing game effectively at Georgia Tech?
Which team, Miami, FSU or Virginia Tech, will toss a player from the team for some sort of criminal behavior, academic failure or violation of team policy first? (Oops, sorry Tech you already blew that one when you s***-canned your starting RB a couple of months ago.)
Is Boston College really in the ACC?
Why doesn’t anybody really care about N.C. State except N.C. State?
Which two incredibly close games will Clemson lose to teams that they should beat the pee livin’ snot out of?
Will Wake Forest be the Wake Forest of 2006 or the Wake Forest of every other year?
No, no and no some more.
The burning question on everybody’s mind is simply can the James Madison University Football Dukes (the 2004 NCAA Division 1AA Football National Champions and #7 in the 2008 preseason poll) defeat the every so lowly Duke Blue Devils in both teams opener on Saturday, August 30th?
(Praise Jesus, let JMU win…puh-leez…we’re begging!)
Overwhelmed with early action, Vegas has pulled down the line. That must be the reason TAH can’t find one…
Enter our stepchild cousins over in Standardbred (or harness racing as it is sometimes known) world. You know the ones with the little carts called a sulky.
They have a nice race called the Hambletonian (purse of $1.5 million) that is the harness racing version of the Super Bowl/Kentucky Derby. Evidently, it’s a big party. (By the way, the photo illustrates why they call Standardbreds "jugheads."
This year the 2 to 5 early favorite is a horse named Deweycheatumnhowe.

So that explains it, Giuliani, who is from a football state and, no doubt, a fan of the 2008 Super Bowl Champion New York Giants, put the wood to some pansy-ass Duke golfers in a football game. We guess the “boys” didn’t really want to play football to begin with, and, God forbid, anybody who represents Duke Athletics should know better than to play hard at the blasphemous game of football.

Coach Paul Hewitt said Wednesday the 6-foot-10 Dickey signed a contract with Budivelnyk Kiev of the Ukrainian Super League. He redshirted last season to recover from acute tendinitis in his right knee and had a year of eligibility remaining.
"Ra'Sean and his family have decided that the time is right for him to begin his professional basketball career, and we wish him all the best," Hewitt said.
Dickey played in 89 games over three seasons, averaging 8.7 points and 5.1 rebounds while shooting 60.1 percent from the field. His best season was 2005-06, when he averaged 13.2 points and 6.8 rebounds.
The Yellow Jackets were 15-17 last season, including 7-9 in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Hansbrough receives the "Anthony J. McKevlin Award" as the league's top male performer. That award, named in honor of the former sports editor of the Raleigh News & Observer, has been presented since the formation of the ACC in 1954.
Tincher, the USA Softball National Player of the Year and Honda Award recipient as the top player in her sport, led the Hokies to their first-ever Women's College World Series appearance while ranking first nationally in both strikeouts and earned run average.
1. Virginia Tech (58) 383, 2. Wake Forest (5) 304, 3. Florida State (1) 265, 5. Maryland 147, 6. NC State 112

Maybe this photo explains part of the problem?
