ACC's lunchtime links

Posted by ESPN.com's Heather Dinich

Happy August, ACC fans. Here we go:

  • Boston College linebacker Mark Herzlich can see himself playing football again in 2010, and he's got reason to believe.

  • BC quarterback Dave Shinskie has already heard most of the old-timer jokes, but he's taking it all in with a smile and a laugh. Adjusting to college, though, has been a bit of a shock to his system.

  • Ask Paul Johnson what Georgia Tech has done under his watch, and aside from beating Georgia, he'll tell you "nothing." The Jackets still have some unresolved issues to address this summer, and it starts today.

  • Tom O'Brien and Butch Davis get along much better than their predecessors did, but which program really has the edge? NC State does, if you're strictly speaking quarterbacks. Bobby Bowden said Russell Wilson might be the most dangerous quarterback in the country. It's true. But can he stay healthy?

  • Here are five newcomers who could have an immediate impact for Clemson.

  • Just when it looked like FSU's tight ends might be free to help out more in the passing game than in the blocking, one of them might have to slide into the fullback role.

  • Can Virginia ever be a powerhouse in football? AD Craig Littlepage says there can be a "sustained level of success" in all of the Cavaliers' programs.
