NCF Nation: Bruce Smith
Posted by ESPN.com's Heather Dinich
I saw some of your comments yesterday regarding the same schools being mentioned lately in the daily links, and I just wanted you guys to know I check at least one paper for each ACC school every day, and also do a Google news search to see if anything else pops up. As the coaches would say, "It is what it is." Hopefully it will start to pick up once spring ball begins for some other schools.
Until then, say hello to Tommy Streeter and Randy Phillips, two Miami players who were injured last season but could make an impact this year. Safety Vaughn Telemaque is another player coach Randy Shannon has high hopes for.
The Orlando Sentinel is doing a preview on each school that will have a new head coach in 2009, and they featured Boston College in Wednesday's post. Here's another one I missed from Wednesday ... Virginia's General Assembly honored former Hokie Bruce Smith.
Duke coach David Cutcliffe is one of the few coaches on Dave Curtis' list of coaches to call to fix some problems bigger than an inexperienced quarterback.
Maryland lost its No. 2 athletic director to Georgia State on Wednesday, and coach Ralph Friedgen apparently helped her make the move.
