It's not the Thursday night game you've been waiting for, but it should be a good one nonetheless ...
I really like David Cutcliffe. He's a straight shooter. Here's his take on quarterback Sean Renfree and the outside influences:
"He knows who to listen to -- [Duke assistant] Kurt Roper, his daddy and me," Cutcliffe said Tuesday. "The rest of ya, the hell with ya."
North Carolina true freshman offensive lineman James Hurst will get one of his biggest challenges of the season on Saturday against Miami's Olivier Vernon.
Forget the past, Georgia Tech and Clemson. It's a new season.
It's about time John Blake surrendered. Make a public statement. Apologize. Apologize to Butch Davis and his players, apologize to North Carolina fans and apologize to your lawyers for making them take the heat for you.
Individually, Miami has some players on offense who are having outstanding seasons. Collectively? They're still not producing the results they want to see -- namely points.
When it comes to hiring coaches, Georgia Tech's Paul Johnson and Clemson's Dabo Swinney are reminders not to get too caught up in labels.
BC offensive coordinator Gary Tranquill is in a tough spot having to start from scratch with a new quarterback two years in a row.
FSU coach Jimbo Fisher is even happier with his team now than he was after it stomped on Miami.
UVA walk-on Trevor Grywatch sacrificed a bit of himself to help save another.
Do you snore? If so, Virginia Tech fans kindly ask that you stay away from Dyrell Roberts and Danny Coale at their team hotels on the eve of games.
