ACC's lunchtime links

It's almost all about recruiting in July ...

Georgia Tech is still evaluating offensive lineman Zak Tait, who had two knee sugeries but says he's bigger, stronger and faster now.

Maryland no longer has to wait for this defensive tackle's commitment. Andre Monroe is a little undersized, though, which might explain why the Terps were his lone BCS conference offer.

Clemson is getting close to luring in this defensive back.

Florida State's defensive linemen are all making progress, including Moses McCray, whose hip flexor injury bothered him all of last season.

And the leftovers:

First, if you've seen some of these already, I apologize. I scoured a bunch of ACC papers to see what I missed out on last week. Some things were news to me, like UNC's Jay Wooten wanting to handle all of the kicking duties at an FBS school so badly he's willing to transfer and sit out a year to do it. 

Might Maryland and Florida State have a similar problem with their coach-in-waiting plan? As in, the coach in waiting is kept waiting too long

Bobby Bowden and the experts seem to differ on the generation gap between coaches and players.

Is Bowden a hypocrite? Mike Bianchi calls him out on it.

NC State's recruiting class is growing while North Carolina's is shrinking.

Miami safety Joe Wylie is transferring in search of more playing time. There is still plenty of reason for optimism, though.
