Welcome to National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day!

Popular with kids, but certainly not just for them, the peanut butter and jelly sandwich—often simply known as a PB&J—is celebrated and eaten today. The sandwich is made with one or more layers of peanut butter—either chunky or smooth—and jelly, usually on white bread, although any bread may be used. It is sometimes made open faced and then folded together, to make what looks like a half sandwich.

There are many variations of the sandwich. Instead of or in addition to jelly and peanut butter, ingredients may include jam, honey, sliced fruit, and cream cheese. Nutella, almond butter, and marshmallow fluff can also be used. When marshmallow fluff takes the place of the jelly the sandwich is known as a fluffernutter.

Syracuse Spring Football Practice - Get Ready for the 2024 Season

2024 ACC Football head coach rankings from 1 to 17 (; Simonton)

It’s the spring, which means pollen-covered cars, March Madness and head coach rankings!

That’s right, it’s time for the 2024 series ranking the head coaches from each Power Conference, the Top 10 in the Group of 5 and an updated Top 25 for all of college football.

We started the series last week looking at the 16 head coaches in the SEC. Then last Monday, I looked at the 18 head coaches in the Big Ten. Today, it’s the ACC’s day.

While the sport continues to adapt to a new landscape, coupled with losing venerable coaches like Nick Saban, Jim Harbaugh and Chip Kelly, these head coach rankings will look much differently than they did a year ago.

For the uninitiated, these lists are totally subjective. This is meant to be a fun exercise, but it’s my rankings.

While career achievements are taken into account, college football has become a sport that’s constantly changing, so recent performance (wins, recruiting, working the transfer portal, hiring assistants, producing NFL Draft picks, etc) is weighed much more heavily than what you’ve done in the past.

Entering the 2024 season, the ACC head coach rankings unfolded dramatically differently than they did last offseason. Three new coaches are now in charge at traditional ACC schools, plus the conference welcomes Cal, Stanford and SMU this year.

Betting Stuff: Cam Ward, Mack Brown, and my favorite ACC win totals in 2024 (; Peterson)

Spring ball is under way and there are a ton of storylines in the ACC that have nothing to do with the potential destruction of the league. Florida State is the defending champion, but the Seminoles lost a massive chunk of their 2-deep this offseason.

Still, FSU offers some value in the preseason. FanDuel has win totals out for the power conferences. Here are my favorites right now.

Miami Hurricanes over 9.5 wins (+128 at FanDuel)

The first 2 years of the Mario Cristobal era at Miami brought enough drama to rival a Netflix reality show. It is Miami, after all. The Hurricanes lost to Middle Tennessee State in Year 1 under Cristobal and then suffered one of the greatest coaching mistakes in modern college football history in a loss to Georgia Tech last year.

It is, however, worth remembering that if not for Cristobal losing his mind for mere seconds on the sidelines on Oct. 7, Miami goes 8-4 in the regular season. The Hurricanes beat a ranked Texas A&M team by 48 points, and they beat Clemson at home on Oct. 21. From Oct. 14 through Nov. 18, Miami faced North Carolina (on the road), Clemson, NC State (on the road), Florida State (on the road), and Louisville. It was an… OK season? All things considered.

Miami finished 2022 ranked No. 74 in Bill Connelly’s SP+ rankings. The Hurricanes finished the 2023 season ranked No. 28, and they had a flag you want to look for when projecting teams that might make a jump — they played a ton of 1-score games and sucked in them.

Former Pitt TE Coach Tim Salem Takes Job in the ACC (; Ludwig)

Tim Salem didn’t escape the mass layoffs made to the offensive staff earlier this offseason, but he’s landed on his feet in the ACC.

Salem, who spent the last nine seasons as the tight ends coach at Pitt, has taken a new job at ACC foe Georgia Tech, where he will serve as a special advisor for special teams. Rivals’ Kelly Quinlan first reported the news last month.

Salem has previously served as a special teams coordinator at Colorado State (1989-90), UCF (2009-11) and Illinois (2012-14). And he’s the second former Pitt coach to accept a special teams job this offseason, joining Andre Powell (East Carolina).

Salem, 62, was one of Narduzzi’s original hires in 2015, and he spent the last nine seasons as the tight ends coach and a key recruiter in the Northeast region for the Panthers.

Salem was a key recruiter when it came to landing Kenny Pickett, Izzy Abanikanda, Jason Pinnock, SirVocea Dennis, Solomon DeShields, Carter Warren, Samuel Okunlola, Maurice Ffrench and Matt Goncalves.


Cicadas are coming: Invaders from underground will be biggest bug emergence in centuries (PS; $; AP)

Trillions of evolution’s bizarro wonders, red-eyed periodical cicadas that have pumps in their heads and jet-like muscles in their rears, are about to emerge in numbers not seen in decades and possibly centuries.

Crawling out from underground every 13 or 17 years, with a collective song as loud as jet engines, the periodical cicadas are nature’s kings of the calendar.

These black bugs with bulging eyes differ from their greener-tinged cousins that come out annually. They stay buried year after year, until they surface and take over a landscape, covering houses with shed exoskeletons and making the ground crunchy.

This spring, an unusual cicada double dose is about to invade a couple parts of the United States in what University of Connecticut cicada expert John Cooley called “cicada-geddon.” The last time these two broods came out together in 1803 Thomas Jefferson, who wrote about cicadas in his Garden Book but mistakenly called them locusts, was president.


The Northeast, including Upstate New York, will get hit this week by a storm bringing a combination of rain and snow. (Accuweather)Accuweather

‘Long-duration’ storm could bring rain, heavy snow to Upstate NY in early April (PS; Coin)

A multi-day storm will hit Upstate New York on Tuesday and last through the rest of the work week, dropping rain and potentially heavy snow through Friday.

The storm could lead to slippery roads and power outages as wet snow weighs on tree branches. Snow is more likely at higher elevations, especially later in the week.

“A long-duration storm is expected to affect the region Tuesday night through Thursday with periods of rain and snow,” said the National Weather Service. “Significant accumulating snowfall is increasingly likely.”

The storm will start as rain Tuesday, as a system sweeps in from the Ohio Valley and into Upstate New York. Rain could be heavy Wednesday, although flooding is unlikely given the lack of recent rainfall, the weather service said.

One to three inches of precipitation, in the form of rain and the water in snowfall, could fall across Upstate.
