In case you slept through all of Wednesday, two major things happened: Boston College coach Jeff Jagodzinski was fired, and a handful of players decided to leave the ACC for the NFL.

Here are a few stories and opinions on both of those subjects:

JAGZ GONE

Gregg Doyel applauded Boston College for taking a stand, but he wasn't the only one. Sally Jenkins was also a fan of the move, as was Dan Wetzel. About the only opinion missing on this is Jagodzinski's. One thing is for sure -- athletic director Gene DeFilippo took it personally.

ACC PLAYERS GONE

Maryland wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey is trying to remain a "normal citizen" while preparing for the NFL draft.

The fact that Virginia wide receiver Kevin Ogletree already graduated made his decision a lot easier.

Also leaving is arguably the best defensive end in the ACC, FSU's Everette Brown.

ACC ASSISTANT GONE?

Paul Strelow is reporting that Clemson assistant Ron West (outside linebackers/bandit ends) might be the first one out the door to make room for new defensive coordinator Kevin Steele.
