A Wolfpack Win Against Clemson Would Not Be Good for the ACC (Rocky Mount Telegram)

If N.C. State still harbors hopes to one day win a national championship – and believe me, it does – the best course of action is for the Wolfpack to lose to No. 3 Clemson on Thursday. And not just lose. Get blown out. Give up 50 points. Bore the daylights out of ESPN’s announcing team. Make all of us change the channel. Make Tajh Boyd look like Bo Jackson in Tecmo Super Bowl…

Vad Lee Adds More Passing TDs to Georgia Tech’s Attack (Associated Press)

Paul Johnson isn’t making a big deal about the sudden balance in Georgia Tech’s normally run-dominated spread-option offense. Vad Lee threw four touchdown passes in last week’s win at Duke. Before that performance, no Georgia Tech quarterback had thrown four TD passes in a game since 2006 — two years before Johnson’s arrival as coach…

Tajh Boyd Finds Perfect Home at Clemson (Charlotte Observer)

Collecting dust in Dabo Swinney’s office for nearly five years is the poster – Tajh Boyd for Heisman – he unrolled during a visit in December 2008 to the Boyd family home in Virginia. It was a Hail Mary four weeks into the job as coach. Swinney was selling himself and his vision for Clemson football, and in Boyd he saw a potential keystone to rebuilding a proud program…

Will USC be the Beginning of the End of “Big Five” Opponents Coming to the Heights? (BC Interruption)

Next season, the USC Trojans return to Chestnut Hill for the back-end of a home-and-home with the Eagles. The 2014 home date with USC, combined with the 2021 visit by Ohio State, remain the only two scheduled non-conference opponents from the Big Five conferences on BC’s future schedule…

Duke Football Moves Forward With Questions at Quarterback (Duke Chronicle)

When Brandon Connette took over at quarterback for an injured Anthony Boone against Memphis, Duke’s offensive efficiency rose to another level. Seeing his first consistent action under center since the 2010 season, Connette revitalized the Blue Devils, leading the team to a 28-14 road victory. Saturday’s rout against Georgia Tech in Duke’s ACC opener told another story…

Wake Forest Searching for Answers, Identity (ESPN’s ACC Blog)

Three games into the season, Wake Forest is searching for an offensive identity. Right now, it looks like a 1-2 mess. Coach Jim Grobe knows exactly what he has to work with: decent players, good kids, not enough depth and zero margin for error in the ACC. And apparently against Louisiana-Monroe. And Army. “I don’t think it’s a program thing, it’s just the way Wake Forest is always going to be”…

Staff Roundtable: What We Learned from the ECU Win (Gobbler Country)

I’m going to start this off by addressing the elephant in the room, Cody Journell. No, I don’t think Frank Beamer should bench a career 78% kicker (including the ECU game). And no, I don’t think this problem will linger. He made a technical mistake on what is usually an automatic extra point, and that sent Journell into a mental downward spiral, which only escalated his technical flaws…
