Chat: ACC Coaches Chat Day 2 - SportsNation - ESPN

One of the most revealing details that came out of Edsall's participation in yesterday's ESPN Car Wash was that new football facilities are apparently in the works, which is good because as of today, Maryland has the 2nd smallest football facilities in the B1G and after Northwestern finishes their renovations, we'll be dead last. That needs to change and it appears they're working on it. We'll have more about this later today. Here's what Edsall said in the chat .

That's something that we know we have to upgrade and we're going to. We're in discussions and talks right now. We're putting together plans and renderings of new facilities. We know that for us to go and be on a competitive scale not only where we are in the ACC but moving forward to the Big Ten, we have to upgrade the facilities. We look forward to the continuing of that process and getting a shovel in the ground.

Hey look, has updated their basketball roster. Time to dust off those old Juan Dixon jerseys. Two very familiar numbers are going to be work in 2013-2014 - Damonte Dodd is wearing #35 and Roddy Peters (who grew up idolizing Juan Dixon) is going to be wearing Juan's trademark #3. Big shoes to fill, guys. Oh and in case you didn't know, Evan Smotrycz is wearing #1.

ACC coaches concerned about ejections over targeting rule -
ACC coaches are worried about defensive players getting ejected for unintentional hits. Edsall brings up a good point in that they have to teach fundamentally sound tackling, but he's worried that someone will get wrongfully ejected and that means during road games, they'll probably have to bring an extra defensive player with them.
