HAS GOBBLER NATION GONE COMPLETELY CRAZY?

Google Alert sent us a message earlier today noting the Gobbler Country had called T.A.H. the “blog of record for the ACC.” Now, we’re prejudiced obviously, but that seemed like high praise for lil’ ol’ T.A.H. Then it went on to say “it doesn’t provide much commentary” and that’s when we know there was a mistake somewhere.

We contacted Gobbler Country and pointed out the error, but we thought our loyal readers (especially CC Nation) would enjoy this while it lasts…

Who Will Carry the Banner for the ACC in the Blogosphere?


ACC Football Report shut its doors on Friday. Marcus' absense will be felt among those who eat, sleep and breathe ACC oblong. His departure deprives ACC football of one of it's strongest proponents (and harshest critics) from the last three seasons. Combined with the closure of ACC Nation last season, we are bereft of a strong conference-wide independent blog.

Without Marcus, the ACC has to find a new voice in the blogosphere. There are a few options, but only one that can provide the same kind of coverage Marcus did. We need someone who can cover all 12 schools in a blog that's available to everyone and independent of mainstream media.
Here on SB Nation, Team Speed Kills covers SEC football and The Rivalry, Esq., covers Big Ten football. There isn't an ACC-wide independent blog, mainly because not many exist.

Today's ACC Headlines is the blog of record for the ACC. However, it doesn't provide much commentary. It's a great place to go if you want a quick run-down of what's going on in the conference. But it doesn't really comment on the issues the ACC is facing.
