Football spring practice and spring game kickoff dates have been announced for Georgia Tech and the rest of the ACC. The Jackets get spring ball going a little later in the year than most of the conference, beginning practices after all but two teams and holding their T-Day Game before only Maryland's spring game.
Teams with the most questions to address during spring ball: Tech, Miami, Virginia Tech, UNC, N.C. State, and Clemson need to figure out new quarterbacks, N.C. State lost significant talent while bringing on very few contributors, and Maryland and Miami have new head coaches. So let's say Miami and N.C. State.
Duke starts the conference off well before it's even spring -- in fact, the Blue Devils reach their spring game just after spring begins, making this more of a winter practice period, right? Their spring game actually lines up near the end of March Madness. If Duke basketball loses in the Elite Eight, the football spring game could be the next morning. If Duke reaches the Final Four, Duke sports in general will have more attention on them than normal. Does Duke always schedule their spring football so early? Can't believe I've written so much about Duke spring football on my day off.
