It's a big week for Florida State, and not because of the game on Thursday night. It's time to meet with the NCAA's Committee on Infractions, and it's not to discuss the Noles' 9.8 penalties per game over lunch.

The Willy Korn era officially began at Clemson's Sunday night practice. Get this -- Korn said he learned of his promotion while surfing the Internet. Which is where I learned that C.J. Spiller might be out for the Georgia Tech game with a pulled hamstring, at least according to his buddy James Davis.

After even further review, officials at the North Carolina/Notre Dame game this past weekend got it right

It takes more than three interceptions and a shaky performance against UCF to lose your starting job at Miami these days. Randy Shannon told the Miami Herald Robert Marve is still the guy.

The big story in Raleigh, N.C. this week is the return of former NC State coach Chuck Amato when FSU plays NC State on Thursday night. Current coach Tom O'Brien is handling the situation well, though. When asked about the state of the program when he inherited it, O'Brien said, "it didn't matter what shape the program was in. I'm the head coach and I have to make it better."

One last thing ... a great story about David Cutcliffe and his family.
