ACC's lunchtime links

I was scanning the papers and came across this headline: "Duke, UNC co-favorites to win the ACC." Having the college football tunnel vision I do right now, I thought who wrote THIS? Then I realized it's basketball season in the ACC.
  • A stinger has been bothering Georgia Tech B-back Jonathan Dwyer, but the only one who was left hurting on Saturday was Virginia defensive back Chris Cook.
  • It's time to switch goals at Maryland, where a bowl game now seems unlikely. The Terps now seem ready to start playing for the future.
  • Sure, it would've been nice for the Eagles to beat Notre Dame for a seventh straight time, but that loss had zero impact on what they're trying to accomplish in the conference.
  • In a matchup of the "Steele Curtain" defense vs. the "Whiplash" offense, Clemson defensive coordinator Kevin Steele came out on top.
  • Duke still needs three more wins to become bowl eligible, but hey, right now, the Blue Devils look like the best team in the state.
  • Virginia is trying to put its loss to Georgia Tech behind it, but it has to be hard to forget allowing 362 rushing yards.
  • The Cavs aren't the only team in the conference trying to regroup. Miami coach Randy Shannon said "this one hurt."
  • FSU president T.K. Wetherell has said he'd like his successor to be named by the end of the year, but right now, that looks unlikely.
