*Has Virginia Tech quarterback Tyrod Taylor shied away from what makes him most dangerous? Frank Beamer said that after watching film, he didn't see any instances where Taylor should have run and didn't. No doubt the Hokies didn't waste any time reviewing their game film, and Taylor was one of the first players next to sit down with Bryan Stinespring.
*UNC is trying to establish itself as a strong running team, and so far, so good.
*Duke's players and coaches have been searching for answers to explain their flat performance against Richmond, and they'll have to find them quickly with a road trip to Army looming.
*TCU coach Gary Patterson is expecting a different -- and better -- Virginia team this weekend. Patterson thinks the Cavaliers are a "good football team in waiting."
*Jorge Milian of the Palm Beach Post graded Miami's performance in the FSU game, and ranked Jacory Harris' performance among the top 5 he's seen.
*Florida State has four days to recover from its loss to Miami, and the Noles are pushing forward.
*NC State's defense was one of the bright spots in the Pack's loss to South Carolina. Ken Tysiac checked in with defensive coordinator Mike Archer for his take on it.
*Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe said he doesn't expect any lineup changes for Saturday's game against Stanford.
*The weaknesses Cal exposed weren't much of a surprise to those who have been paying attention to the Terps' woes during summer camp. It was only the first week of the season, but the players felt it necessary to call a players-only meeting to make sure the Terps weren't sulking.
*Unfortunately for Clemson coach Dabo Swinney, it's not the first time he's had to cram for the Georgia Tech game. One thing he can count on is C.J. Spiller, who clarified his injury situation and was limited to some light jogging on Sunday.
*Georgia Tech's defensive line will get a better test Thursday night against the Tigers.
