Around the ACC we go ...
- Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson continues to move the defense away from former coordinator Al Groh's philosophies.
- Clemson's defense has also gone back to basics.
- Maryland is trying to find a quick fix for its running game.
- Miami's defense has made progress, but has it made enough to beat FSU?
- For guys like Lamarcus Joyner, growing up in enemy territory involved a little trash-talking.
- Virginia coach Mike London felt the need to defend the direction of the program.
- Clemson's offense? That's "a real booger" to prepare for.
- Duke has moved its focus from the loss to the Hokies to rival North Carolina.
- Will Wake Forest be mentally prepared for its trip to UVa?
- NC State coach Tom O'Brien said his team has handled adversity much better than it has handled success.
- Clemson had Virginia Tech's number last year -- but not its signals.
- Maryland defensive end A.J. Francis has the frame to lend a hand.
