    ACC's Championship Game Not Selling ... Dabo Loses Koenning ... Johnson Named Top ACC Dog ... Brown Comes In Second

    * Here's a "shocker". According to ESPN, BC and Va. Tech were both allotted 10,000 tickets for the ACC championship game this Saturday, and as of Wednesday, Virginia Tech had sold 3,000 and Boston College just under 2,000. Think that the folks for the ACC Championship Game in Tampa were not disappointed when the Noles didn't win the Atlantic Division?

    * Clemson's defensive coordinator Vic Koenning resigned on Tuesday. Clemson's defense was ranked #4 in the conference and its scoring defense was ranked #1.

    * In what was absolutely no shocker, Georgia Tech head coach Paul Johnson who in his first year went 9-3 was named ACC Coach of the Year. Johnson whose triple option offense was a huge success had wins over the Noles and the Georgia Bulldogs.

    * Running back Jonathan Dwyer of Georgia Tech took the ACC Player of the Year honors joining his coach. The Noles had no players that took top honors although defensive end Everette Brown came in second for ACC Player of the Year honors and also second for ACC Defensive Player of the Year. Brown came in second to BC's Mark Herzlich for defensive player of the year.

    The ACC Championship game should be held in Atlanta or Charlotte and it should be kept there. This bouncing around every year makes us look like a conference without a home - which I guess we are.

    Not sure about that. I think if FSU had won the Atlantic, there would not be a problem.The problem for the ACC currently is that the marquee schools like FSU and Miami are down. BC and Va. Tech do not get the ratings or the draw.I would definitely not put it in Jacksonville again given the Gator Bowl's recent actions.
