ACC's lunchtime links

It's quiet out there ...

  • Conference rankings are a popular topic this week, and Matt Hayes of The Sporting News showed the ACC almost as much love as I did. Almost.

  • Thanks to John in Arlington, Va., for this link from the Gainesville Sun: Robbie Andreu at GatorSports.com says Christian Ponder will win the Heisman this year.

  • The NCAA lost its appeal of the court ruling that forced it to publicly release records on Florida State's academic cheating scandal.

  • Randy Shannon is under pressure to win a national title at Miami and he has four years or less to do it. (I'd say he's got 2010 and 2011).

  • Here's a local story about BC walk-on Brendan Murphy. It's a nice read because it reminds you just how excited some guys get to be a part of the team in any way they can. They can't all be Mark Herzlich.

  • Get to know FSU freshman Terrence Brooks -- he's a prankster.
