ACC's lunchtime links: Maryland searching for identity

Posted by ESPN.com's Heather Dinich

Maryland fans have the right to expect more, writes the Baltimore Sun's Rick Maese, and a mid-tier bowl is no longer enough. Well, if the Terps continue to play like they did on Thursday night, that's exactly what they're gonna get. The Hokies, however, might have found their identity.

They definitely found a bowl game. Here's a breakdown of where at least one team might go bowling.

Florida State coach Bobby Bowden has outlasted a lot of coaches in the country, including all three of his sons. It's amazing, isn't it?

The pain still runs deep for Bryan Pata's mother, who struggles every day with her son's unresolved murder.

Life has not been easy for Duke's Chris Rwabukamba, but it could have been much worse had he stayed in Rwanda.

North Carolina State receiver Owen Spencer has helped the Pack fill the void left by injured starter Donald Bowens. And he has appreciated every minute of the opportunity.
