ACC in the morning: Clemson 'joke' causes some problems

Posted by ESPN.com's Heather Dinich

Good morning, ACC fans! Why the exclamation point so early? Because I'm heading to Atlanta today! And I'll be at a game tomorrow!

Flight leaves soon, so I've got an abbreviated edition for you today. Since I'm heading to Atlanta, why don't we check in on what kind of trouble Clemson has already stirred with Alabama.

Defensive coordinator Vic Koenning's off-hand comment about Alabama recruiting had him a little worried about his vacation home in Alabama.

Elsewhere in Atlanta, I spoke with Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson on Tuesday and he reinforced the notion that Josh Nesbitt is his starting quarterback, despite strong performances by Jaybo Shaw this summer and the fact that Johnson recruited Shaw while he was at Navy.

NC State fans should be thankful South Carolina running back Mike Davis was just ... so ... thirsty! Smile, Mike, you're on candid football camera.

Heading to Dolphin Stadium this week? Here's the scouting report on the new venue. When Miami released its injury report Tuesday there was one surprise.

Florida State still hasn't named a starting quarterback, and Jimbo Fisher hasn't ruled out the possibility of playing more than one.

Of course, most of you know by now that Frank Beamer made his decision to redshirt Tyrod Taylor on Tuesday.

Elsewhere in the Commonwealth, Virginia's quarterback still remains a mystery. Looks like it will be a game-time decision.

OK guys, that's all you get today or I'm walkin' to Hotlanta. Check back later, though, I've got some more for you ... AND check out the Hotlist on ESPNEWS around 4:10 p.m., where SEC blogger Chris Low and I will be talking football.
