ACC's lunchtime links

Pssst ... there's a chat going on!

  • Maryland offensive coordinator James Franklin is looking for a "no-gut offense, no bellies." Whatever happened to no guts, no glory? Never before has coach Ralph Friedgen opened a season facing so much pressure.

  • Can somebody cut Mark Herzlich a break? His miraculous comeback has been delayed.

  • BC's Ifeanyi Momah is a wide receiver who will see some time on defense this fall because of his ability to rush the passer.

  • The NCAA investigation has turned its focus to UNC assistant John Blake.

  • Duke running back Desmond Scott isn't used to being last at anything, and he's determined to change that about the Blue Devils' running game this fall.

  • BC running back Montel Harris is aiming to become the best rusher in school history.

  • As someone who has suffered from migraines, it's a wee bit worse than "a headache." And I'm guessing it would take something a little worse to keep Georgia Tech defensive end Jason Peters out of practice. Migraine? Concussion? Doesn't matter. He'll be back.

  • Miami had some fun banging heads on Monday. Running back Storm Johnson says he has no plans on redshirting. He wants to be the starter.

  • FSU coach Jimbo Fisher defended Mickey Andrews.

  • There's another Taylor on Virginia Tech's roster who plans on making some noise this fall.
