ACC in the morning: Miami edition
Posted by ESPN.com's Heather Dinich
CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- It's time to talk Canes. Miami coach Randy Shannon will have his news conference today to preview the Florida game, so why don't we start there.
- Chomp on this: Miami receivers coach Aubrey Hill was once on the Florida sideline. He even won an SEC championship with those Gators, too.
- How big is this game for recruiting? About 6-foot-4, 309 pounds big.
- Shannon knows what playing in Gainesville is like. He compared it to a basketball game in Cameron Indoor.
- Truth be told, neither Urban Meyer nor Steve Spurrier really wants to play the Canes on a regular basis.
Moving onto Florida State since they're finally playing this weekend ...
I can't believe we're still talking about this. When I make it down to Florida State this season, I'm gonna have to personally introduce myself to each offensive lineman and let him tell me how he really feels. Of course, I'd like to be standing behind one of their defensive linemen when they do it.
- Don't be surprised when Paul Johnson decides to goferit on fourth-and-four this weekend at BC. Then again, when the kicking game needs as much work as the Yellow Jackets' did, it might not be such a bad idea.
- There will be a sideline reunion this weekend when Virginia faces Richmond and former Cavaliers' defensive coordinator Mike London.
- Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer said Monday he hasn't considered making a change at quarterback OR offensive coordinator.
- NC State has all kind of problems, and losing Russell Wilson and Anthony Hill are at the top of the list.
- Tommy Bowden said toughness wasn't the problem in the Tigers' loss to Alabama, but had a hard time explaining what was.
- Duke coach David Cutcliffe had to figure out how to get his team to win. Now he has to figure out to help them handle the fact they did.
- When it comes to the schools in the Carolinas, the folks at the Charlotte Observer and the Raleigh News & Observer think Wake Forest is at the top.
- Maryland's quarterback saga never ends.
