Try the veal...

From Heather Dinich’s ESPN ACC blog:

*Of course, the biggest news comes out of Blacksburg, where Darren Evans will miss the season with a torn ACL. Evans was so distraught he couldn't even speak. Poor guy. Darryl Slater of the Richmond-Times Dispatch gives his take on what it means for Evans and the Hokies. One thing is for sure, though: Frank Beamer has always been a believer.

*North Carolina is getting a boost from science, and it requires the players to pop a vitamin-size capsule to help determine whether higher body temperatures increase the possibility of concussions. It's a very interesting story, and UNC isn't the only one doing this.

*Overall, Maryland cut $301K from its football budget, and coach Ralph Friedgen declined to comment. Sometimes silence speaks volumes, no?

*It looks like Kyle Parker is the frontrunner for Clemson's starting quarterback job, but coach Dabo Swinney isn't quite ready to make that call yet. He'd like to know, though, before the season opener.

*Miami's newest quarterback was born to be a Cane -- literally.

*NC State quarterback Mike Glennon "looks ketchup bottle slow," but those within the program say don't let him fool you. We'll find out soon enough, as there's no doubt Glennon will play in the season opener.

*Duke coach David Cutcliffe understands that making a bigger jump than last season could be very difficult.

*Georgia Tech's Jonathan Dwyer returned to practice on Tuesday despite a minor hip flexor, but a few of his teammates weren't as fortunate.
