ACC's lunchtime links

Travel day, games to play, I'm on my way.

  • It's an individual preference, but Maryland offensive coordinator Jame Franklin has decided he likes coaching from the sideline better than the box.

  • Virginia Tech's Mark Muncey might not be known to many outside the program, but to those in it, he's one of the biggest pranksters on the team. And Jaymes Brooks? Well, he's more like the "Jolly Green Giant."

  • Miami quarterback Jacory Harris is expected to be ready to play on Saturday against Duke, but if he's not, backup A.J. Highsmith says he's gotten a lot more comfortable.

  • Ann Bowden has been sounding a little arrogant lately, writes Mike Bianchi. Can't say I disagree there. Might be time for a long cruise to think things over ...

  • Great news for NC State tailback Toney Baker -- he's been granted a sixth year of eligibility. It hasn't been all bad for the Pack this year. Just look at what Jarvis Williams has done.

  • It took a while, but BC is back to being O-Line U.

  • Clemson fans, don't pop that champagne yet.

  • Virginia's players will get a treat at Memorial Stadium -- a full crowd.
