Is it September yet?
*At the top of Georgia Tech's to-do list this fall is quit fumbling. Jackets coach Paul Johnson is hoping the familiarity of the system decreases that.
*Boston College coach Frank Spaziani might have to go right up until game time to name a starting quarterback, and he hasn't ruled out the possibility of playing two. Mark Blaudschun of the Boston Globe gave his prediction as to who the top three signal-callers will be when the depth chart is released Sunday.
*Clemson coach Dabo Swinney called the season opener against Middle Tennessee a "civil war" because of all the former Clemson staffers who work there now.
*UNC coach Butch Davis has followed much of the same blueprint he did while he was at Miami, but one major difference is staff continuity.
*Virginia has four starters back on its offensive line, and that will help the transition to the new scheme, which requires them to play "on an island."
*Miami coach Randy Shannon is recruiting quarterbacks, but he might want to add some defensive linemen to his shopping list, considering so many of them are dealing with injuries right now.
*Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer doesn't feel as good about his team as he did when camp started three weeks ago. Why? Three weeks ago the Hokies had Darren Evans.
*Wake Forest wide receiver Devon Brown is looking for a season as unique as his nickname -- Y'lou.
*Patrick Stevens of the Washington Times caught up with Maryland assistant Kevin Lempa to check in on the Terps' strong secondary.
*Patrick Robinson doesn't get much attention around the conference, but FSU's top cornerback has earned the respect of the receivers he's up against every day.
