Overall QB Play in ACC Must Get Better (ESPN’s ACC Blog)

Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd has not disappointed. Neither has Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston — at least for one game, anyway. Even Maryland quarterback C.J. Brown has impressed in his return from a major knee injury. The rest of the quarterbacks in the ACC? Well, their performances have not exactly risen to elite levels. Not yet, anyway…

Would You Swap Duke’s Football and Basketball Success? (Duke Chronicle)

I can’t think of any regular-season game in any American sport that could have the sort of anticipation that Alabama-Texas A&M has. Not any regular season NFL game, not Heat-Thunder, not Ohio State-Michigan. And no, not even Duke-North Carolina basketball. In many ways, college football is a spectacle unlike anything else: for one day a week, entire towns are just preparing for the game…

U.Va. Can Still Salvage Season (Richmond Times-Dispatch)

There could be worse fates for this year’s Virginia football team than to be mentioned in the same breath as the Cavaliers’ 1984 team. In that season’s opener, Clemson came into Scott Stadium and handed Virginia a 55-0 licking that stood as U.Va.’s most lopsided loss for almost 30 years before No. 2 Oregon routed the Cavaliers 59-10 last Saturday…

They watched from all around the country, from various reclining chairs or sofas, living and dying with the team they know so well.

Cameron Erving didn’t want to make the move. Now a junior offensive tackle and a potential early-round NFL draft pick, the Moultrie, Ga., native wasn’t all that interested in leaving defensisve tackle when Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher brought up the idea following his redshirt season in 2010. But something Fisher said to him during that initial conversation always stayed with him as he mulled the potential position change a year later…

Virginia Tech’s Logan Thomas Works on Pass Progressions; D.J. Coles Tries to Get Established (Daily Press)

After Virginia Tech’s 35-10 loss to No. 1 Alabama, Logan Thomas talked about the need to get better at going through his pass progressions. He made a quick improvement in that department against Western Carolina, but the job doesn’t get any easier. As is normally the case for Football Bowl Subdivision starting quarterback, Thomas has a lot on his plate as he heads into Saturday’s game at East Carolina (2-0)…

Cole Stoudt Earns Some Love From Tigers Fans (Orange and White)

Everybody loves the backup quarterback, so the saying goes. But when Tajh Boyd is the starter…the backup happens to stay more out of the limelight. Last week, Cole Stoudt got an early shot at some fame when Boyd took a shot and had to come out briefly in the second quarter. The Dublin, Ohio native connected on his first seven passes and then 12 of the next 13 for a Clemson single-game completion percentage record (.950)…
