Lunchtime links: FSU communication improvement

Posted by ESPN.com's Heather Dinich

Florida State has had problems covering Miami's tight ends in the past, and after a few blown assignments against Colorado's tight ends, the Seminoles' safeties and weakside linebackers are working to improve their communication.

Coincidentally, there was a huge story in today's Miami Herald about Hurricanes tight end Dedrick Epps' ability to make big plays. Fortunately for Miami, he caught the game-winning touchdown against FSU last year. Unfortunately for Miami, it was their last win of 2007.

UNC quarterback Cam Sexton has been "hurt, benched, promoted and demoted," and he's hoping his story can inspire somebody.

Maryland linebacker Dave Philistin has taken his game to a whole other level -- with an altitude machine.

Despite a few lingering connections to his old program, NC State coach Tom O'Brien said there's a different feel to the Boston College game this year.
