Wednesday evening ACC one-liners

As per usual, Boston College cannot recruit great talents.

The passing game has not been as productive as Clemson had hoped.

Despite seven turnovers, Duke nearly beat Miami last weekend and the Blue Devilsare sticking with quarterback Sean Renfree.

If Florida State can beat North Carolina State this Saturday, then the Seminoles would have atwo game lead over the Wolfpack, the next closest team in the ACC Atlantic standings.Having quarterback Christian Ponder back and healthy will helpFSU…or will it?

Check out this great story about Georgia Tech linebackerJulian Burnett.

For Maryland, mistakes will need to be minimized if the Terrapins hope to beatBoston College this Saturday.

With starting middle linebacker Colin McCarthy‘ s absence last game, Miami founda more-than-suitable backup in Kelvin Cain.

North Carolina’ s offense is versatile, and it will need to be now that starting tight end Zach Pianalto is done for the year.

Seven North Carolina State players cracked Phil Steele‘ s midseason All-ACC team.

Check out this interesting story that includes the saving of aman’ s life, a coach taking advantage of his role and privilege, and a walk-on Virginia player.

With last Saturday’ s win over Wake Forest, Virginia Tech head coach Frank Beamermoved into a tie for 10th place on the all-time wins list, next to a former Michigan coach. (Who doyou think the old Wolverine leader is?)

What, if anything, did Wake Forest do right this past weekend?

    1. Duke vs Virginia Tech. Duke showed some life against Miami but Virginia Tech is not Miami. Season over for Duke and another notch on the Hokies’ bedpost. Hokies are heating up and could finish the regular season 10-2 and play in the ACC championship game.
    2. Maryland vs Boston College. Maryland doesn’t appear to be any better than Boston College and if they’re not then their season is over. Boston College is playing for pride because they’re not going to make it to a bowl.
    3. Georgia Tech vs Clemson. Tech needs one win for bowl eligibility and they could do it against Clemson, whom they’ve beaten 3 straight times. They have a real chance at an 8-4 or 9-3 record, with Virginia Tech being their biggest test down the stretch. Clemson needs 3 wins but I only see 2 wins and 2 toss ups on what they have left. They need this game more than Tech but will they play that way?
    4. Eastern Michigan vs Virginia. Virginia needs 4 wins to be bowl eligible and believe it or not, they have 4 winnable games left and this is the first one. Lose this and they’re out of the bowl picture.
    5. North Carolina vs Miami (FL). Unless they are forced into forfeiting games, the Tar Heels are poised for a bowl game, despite all the turmoil. I see two wins and two winnable games left for a possible 8-4 season. Miami is really not as good as they had thought but there are 3 games left that they can win to become bowl eligible but I don’t think that this is one of them.
    6. Florida State and North Carolina State (Idle). Both are idle and both play each other next week. Loser has to pull for the other team’s opposition so they can make the ACC Championship game in their place.
    7. Wake Forest (Idle). They need 4 wins for bowl eligibility but I only see 3 possibles left. They need to beat Maryland, in order for there to be a chance.
