ACC's lunchtime links

Yes, there are other games this week besides Georgia Tech and Miami. Here's what's being said about them:
  • Will Yeatman is an interesting two-sport athlete who has gone from a former Notre Dame tight end and attackman to a Maryland lacrosse player and possibly back to the football field for the Terps.
  • For the second time in three weeks, Virginia Tech's offensive line will have to deal with one of the nation's top defensive linemen.
  • It's status quo for BC's quarterbacks -- Justin Tuggle will start but Dave Shinskie will also play.
  • Clemson offensive lineman Landon Walker thought he was going to be kicked off the team, but instead, he got his starting job back.
  • BYU quarterback Max Hall has impressed FSU's defense on film. Odds are they'll appreciate him even more on Saturday.
  • Wake Forest's Gelo Orange is making the transition from linebacker to defensive end, and they need him now more than ever.
  • Quarterbacks have been struggling in the state of North Carolina.
  • NC State's longtime equipment manager is stepping down.
  • Coaches throughout the ACC faced questions this week about whether or not the FCS schools are closing the gap. Well, they've certainly allowed them to keep it interesting.
  • The ACC hasn't exactly gotten off to a strong start, that's for sure, and Barry Jacobs writes that knocking ACC football early in the season is "so easy its not very sporting."
  • Larry Williams caught up with Dabo Swinney for an extended interview, and it's in a three-part series for the ACC Sports Journal.
