ACC's lunchtime links

Posted by ESPN.com's Heather Dinich

Here's your daily dose of ACC links:

  • It's a good thing Miami coach Randy Shannon let this player go before he had the chance to represent the U. There was no shortage of news on Thursday in Coral Gables, as Miami's challenging schedule was announced the same day defensive coordinator John Lovett was officially introduced.

  • Thursday night has turned into ACC football night -- unless you're Duke -- writes J.P. Giglio.

  • Duke and Georgia Tech are two programs to keep an eye on when it comes to second-year recruiting classes, writes Andy Staples.

  • If I'm reading this right, it looks like FSU paid $450,000 to NOT play Maine.

  • Former Virginia assistant Bob Pruett will spend his retirement helping his alma mater, Marshall.
