ACC commissioner John Swofford said he expects the revenue gap between his conference and the Big Ten and SEC to close once the ACC Network launches in 2019. "That's why we're doing the channel," Swofford said. "We fully expect a gap with particularly the Big Ten and SEC here for a couple of years but that's the very reason we've signed to do what we're doing. We fully expect that gap will narrow considerably when we get the channel up and running."

Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson called changes to the recruiting calendar "crazy" multiple times, pointing out the unintended consequences on current student-athletes. "If you host a recruit while you're in spring practice, you have to have a day off," Johnson said. "You're going to have to come in and lift or do something on that day and you're going to have to take your day off on a Tuesday, when all your other teammates are lifting. So when they find that out, wait a minute I've got to come back on Saturday and lift because this is my day off and it counts when I'm hosting? It's crazy. Who's going to host in June when they get a little break?"

The Saints are getting creative with some of their tryout signings. They're signing former Georgia Tech QB Justin Thomas, per source, and will likely play him at DB, where he auditioned during this past weekend's rookie minicamp. Thomas is a standout athlete who switched to DB and KR for the Senior Bowl, then auditioned at DB, WR, KR and QB during Georgia Tech's pro day. The Saints are also signing former South Dakota defensive end Drew Iddings. According to NOLA.com, the Saints converted Iddings to guard over the weekend.

Matthew Jordan seemed to be the favorite to start at QB for Georgia Tech, but a foot injury will cost him the final six practices of spring. It'd be a tough blow if it sets him back at all for the fall, as the Yellow Jackets had a lot of momentum to end 2016 and are an ACC sleeper this season.
