ACC's lunchtime links

February is the shortest month? Really?

  • Former Georgia Tech wide receiver Demaryius Thomas wanted to show off his speed at the NFL combine, but now video of his 40-yard dash will have to suffice.

  • Here's more from the telephone interview Brian Landman of the St. Pete Times and I had with FSU quarterback Christian Ponder on Thursday afternoon.

  • Ponder also met with the media in Tallahassee on Thursday. Players and coaches are being made available on a limited basis, so when one is allowed to talk, there's kind of a media frenzy.

  • Clemson coaches also met with the media, and it sounds like offensive coordinator Billy Napier is banking on having quarterback Kyle Parker back.

  • Duke center Bryan Morgan is making friends -- and a difference -- as a volunteer at Duke's Children's Hospital.
