- There's been a coaching carousel in the ACC, and it's starting to get a little dizzying.
- Maryland is reaching out to its fans via social networks to sell tickets to its bowl game against East Carolina.
- Bowl practices are a time to experiment and develop players.
- If BC's next recruit from St. Xavier is as good as its latest product, linebacker Luke Kuechly, the Eagles just struck gold. No pressure, Steven Daniels.
- NC State running back Mustafa Greene has been an exciting rookie and will be a key component to the Pack's future success.
- Miami's players are already buying into first-year coach Al Golden.
- Despite the strong support of Virginia Tech fans, ticket sales remain a problem.
- The mother of UNC fullback Devon Ramsay said that her son's academic issue was not considered serious enough by the university to even be forwarded to the school's honor court.
- The hire of Golden was a calculated risk by Miami AD Kirby Hocutt.
- When it comes to preparing for the Chick-fil-A Bowl, FSU coach Jimbo Fisher is following Bobby Bowden's script.
