Good morning, ACC fans. Hope you're enjoying a long weekend. Watch the replay of the Clemson game last night? Didn't think so.

I'm moving on to the ACC's next hope at making a statement on the national level -- Miami. It doesn't help the Canes' odds that Percy Harvin and linebacker Brandon Spikes will be back. It does help, though, that Florida has provided a little trash-talkin' motivation about the U.

Randy Shannon will have his news conference for the Florida game on Tuesday, and I'll be in town to chat with him and a few of his players.

In addition to Robert Marve's debut, there are a few quarterback situations throughout the league worth watching this week:

MARYLAND -- Will Jordan Steffy start Game 2? This is déjà vu from a year ago. Once again it's unclear whether an injury or his play will determine Steffy's status.

FSU -- Finally, the Noles are playing. But who will be their starting quarterback? It looks like D'Vontrey Richardson has really impressed Jimbo Fisher. We should know his choice soon.

NC State -- Tom O'Brien is expected Monday to update the status of Russell Wilson, who was diagnosed with a grade 3 concussion in Thursday's loss to South Carolina.

Getting ready to board, but I'll have other updates for you throughout the day.
