have the kind of offensive success he enjoyed pl antworten

This story appears in ESPN College Football 2016, on newsstands now. Order online today!Deshaun Watson is pretty much set at quarterback for Clemson. Dalvin Cook is good to go at Florida State. And Brad Kaaya doesnt need to look over his shoulder at Miami.But there are plenty of up-for-grabs positions across the ACC. Heres the biggest preseason battle to watch for each conference team.Atlantic DivisionFlorida State Seminoles: Quarterback?Quarterback Sean Maguire, who replaced an ineffective Everett Golson last year, missed the spring with an ankle injury and isnt assured the No. 1 spot this fall. The majority of spring reps went to J.J. Cosentino (like Maguire a prototypical dropback passer) and dual-threat candidates Deondre Francois and Malik Henry. Redshirt freshman Deondre Francois, who spent last season learning the system, is the favorite to win the starting job.Clemson Tigers: Linebacker?Linebacker B.J. Goodson, a senior who led the team with 108 tackles last season, is gone, leaving a huge hole in the heart of the defense. Sophomore Kendall Joseph (six career tackles) leads the competition to replace him, with early-enrollee freshmen Shaq Smith and Tre Lamar, both ESPN 300 recruits, also in the mix.Louisville Cardinals: Defensive end?Senior Sheldon Rankins is off to the NFL, and he leaves the biggest hole to fill on the Louisville defense. He started all 26 games the past two seasons, and theres not much game experience behind him. Senior Drew Bailey and junior Johnny Richardson, the only returners with experience, have just 22 combined career tackles. Redshirt freshman G.G. Robinson, junior college transfer Chris Williams and early-enrollee freshman Kordell Slater will all compete for the starting spot.NC State Wolfpack: Quarterback?Though some believe sophomore Jalan McClendon, who played in seven games last year, has the edge, redshirt freshman Jakobi Meyers presents more of a dual threat -- in fact, hes the best running quarterback Dave Doeren has had since he arrived. Even if McClendon becomes the starter, new offensive coordinator Eli Drinkwitz, a former assistant at Boise State who learned the spread from Gus Malzahn at Auburn, could design packages to utilize Meyers running ability.Boston College Eagles: Quarterback?BC must get this one right to avoid another losing season. The numbers in 2015 were ugly: Four quarterbacks had at least 40 attempts, but none had a better completion rate than 52 percent; they combined for just eight passing touchdowns and averaged only 5.36 yards per attempt; and they logged seven games with fewer than 100 passing yards. Patrick Towles, a graduate transfer from Kentucky, is expected to battle for the top spot with Darius Wade, who returns from a broken left ankle after starting the first three games of 2015.Wake Forest Demon Deacons: Linebacker?All-ACC player Brandon Chubb (last years leading tackler with 107) and Hunter Williams are gone, leaving big holes to fill at the position. Senior returning starter Marquel Lee will be crucial to solidifying the unit: He had 71 tackles and led the team with 10 tackles for loss last season. Also look for junior Jaboree Williams, sophomore Demetrius Kemp and redshirt freshmen Nate Mays and Justin Strnad to contribute.Syracuse Orangemen: Defensive end?With the graduation or early departure of three of last seasons top defensive ends and the offseason dismissal of three others, game experience at the position is a major concern. Redshirt freshman Jake Pickard will compete with converted tight end Trey Dunkelberger and converted linebacker Kenneth Ruff. But dont be surprised if more reshuffling of the roster occurs, especially with Delaware State grad transfer Gabe Sherrod in the mix.Coastal DivisionNorth Carolina Tar Heels: Linebacker?Jeff Schoettmer and Shakeel Rashad accounted for most of the tackles from the linebacker position (223 combined) last fall. But now that theyve graduated, sophomore Andre Smith and junior Cayson Collins are the only returning linebackers with at least 20 tackles in 2015 -- they combined for 91. Smith can play strong or inside linebacker, which gives the Heels flexibility as they fill out the unit with a number of younger players, led by early enrollee Jonathan Smith.Miami Hurricanes: Offensive line?An improved offensive line is pivotal to any potential turnaround. Junior left tackle Trevor Darling returns and likely will anchor an experienced unit that needs to live up to the Miami pedigree. The group returns nearly every starter, but the new regime could shake up the depth chart. Kc McDermott and Alex Gall will battle at left guard, unless McDermott wins the right tackle job from Sunny Odogwu, who is recovering from an MCL injury. With new offensive line coach Stacy Searels demanding improvement on all fronts, even Darlings job isnt secure.Pittsburgh Panthers: Wide receiver?For quarterback Nathan Peterman to excel in the passing game, the Panthers will need several players to emerge at receiver and tight end. Tyler Boyd caught 43 percent of all passes in 2015, 65 more than second-leading receiver Dontez Ford (26 for 505 yards, 19.4 yards per catch). Zach Challingsworth and Quadree Henderson will also compete for catches, but sophomore Tre Tipton, a running quarterback and wide receiver in high school, might be best suited to replicate Boyds all-purpose style.Virginia Tech Hokies: Quarterback?Last year Brenden Motley played admirably as the backup to senior Michael Brewer -- he completed 56.1 percent of his passes and threw for 11 touchdowns with seven interceptions -- but he wont just slide into the starting role. Fourth-ranked juco quarterback Jerod Evans joined the fold in the spring, and former ESPN 300 signal-caller Dwayne Lawson might be ready to start as a sophomore. Whoever earns the starting job likely will be raw, but Justin Fuente is credited with developing Andy Dalton and Paxton Lynch, so there is valid cause for optimism.Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets: Defensive back?Last seasons secondary fielded four senior starters, so there are several roles up for grabs on a unit that was solid in pass defense in 2015 (1.33 TD-to-INT rate, fifth best in the ACC, and 7.23 yards allowed per attempt). More than a dozen defensive backs could compete for the four roles: Twin brothers Lance and Lawrence Austin, Step Durham, A.J. Gray and Corey Griffin are among those best positioned to earn starting spots.Duke Blue Devils: Defensive end?Defensive tackle A.J. Wolf is the lone returning starter from the front four, and the staff is comfortable with the lines interior. So now Ben Albert needs to identify a few defensive ends with pass-rush potential. Sophomore Marquies Price was the teams third-best pass rusher last season -- faint praise, as he finished with just 1.5 sacks. Allen Jackson and Dominic McDonald are upperclassmen, but theyve combined for only 10 tackles in their careers. Keep an eye on redshirt freshman Trevon McSwain (6-6, 265 pounds).Virginia Cavaliers: Defensive line?Bronco Mendenhall is bringing a 3-4 scheme, and hes tasked with replacing a handful of starters along the defensive line. Andrew Browns spot should be secure, but what pieces will surround him? While Andre Miles-Redmond has starting experience, how will he fare in a new scheme? Donte Wilkins and Chris Peace are two other contenders for starting positions, but dont expect a defined depth chart until well into preseason practice.

Michell Burger, a woman who lives on an estate next to Pistorius gated community, said she and her husband were awoken by the screams in the pre-dawn hours of Feb. 14 last year, when Pistorius killed Reeva Steenkamp by shooting four times through a door in his bathroom.

Making his first appearance since injuring his wrist a month ago, Del Potro had difficulty with his service games in the first set. ANAHEIM, Calif. -- All four principals in one of the most significant trades in both teams history likely will take the ice in the same game for the first time when the Anaheim Ducks meet the Ottawa Senators on Sunday at the Honda Center.Senators winger Bobby Ryan returns to the city where he began his NHL career to face fellow wingers Jakob Silfverberg, Nick Ritchie and Stefan Noesen, now property of the Ducks.Ryan was Anaheims first selection and the second overall in the 2005 NHL draft. The native of Cherry Hill, N.J., joined the Ducks in 2007 and scored at least 30 goals in four consecutive seasons between 2008 and 2012. But managing the salary cap meant trading Ryan in July 2013 for Silfverberg, Noesen and Ottawas first draft choice in the 2014 draft, the 10th overall selection, which Anaheim used on Ritchie.Since arriving in Canadas capital, Ryan has yet to have the kind of offensive success he enjoyed playing on the same line as center Ryan Getzlaf and right winger Corey Perry. Now 29, Ryan accumulated as many as 23 goals for the Senators in 2013-14 and 56 points last season. Both totals fall short of his highs with the Ducks.This season, Ryan has only three goals and eight points after 23 games. He sustained a bone bruise on one of his fingers Nov. 17 against the Nashville Predators. He missed five of the ensuing nine games and before returning to the lineup Wednesday night in San Jose.Senators General Manager Pierre Dorion considered making a trade if Ryan were unavailable for an extended period.It does take presssure off, because when Bobby first got hurt, we didnt know the extent of it, Dorion told the Ottawa Citizen.dddddddddddd For awhile there, we thought it could be long-term. I made a few calls, but were very happy with our depth and the guys weve called up have done a good job, whether its up front or on defense. Im still making calls, but with Bobby back, there might not be as much need immediately.Meanwhile, Silfverberg found a home on the right side of the Ducks most consistent line, which includes center Ryan Kesler and left winger Andrew Cogliano. Silfverberg owns a reputation as a solid two-way forward as the 26-year-old Swede ranks third on the team with eight goals and leads Anaheim with a plus-9 rating.Ritchie, who turned 21 on Monday, is on pace to finish with 18 goals as a left winger after being shuttled between the Ducks and their AHL affiliate in San Diego last season. Ritchie has played with Getzlaf and Perry on the first line and on the third line as a physical presence with skill.Noesen, promoted from San Diego on Wednesday, made his season debut that night against the Carolina Hurricanes and scored his first NHL goal in his third career appearance. In San Diego the previous night, Noesen scored the tying goal with 9.3 seconds left in regulation, as the Gulls earned a 4-3 overtime victory against Bakersfield.Its definitely surreal, Noesen said of the timing. Im happy to be here. ' ' '
