*Thanks, Miami and Florida State, for getting the week started right.
*Clemson running back C.J. Spiller says he's fine, even though he left Saturday's game against Middle Tennessee early with an injury. But even before he left, Jamie Harper got more carries, including the first -- again.
*North Carolina will travel to Connecticut this weekend where it will face a much taller task than it did against The Citadel. Said Butch Davis, "We're going to have to get better real quick."
*The ACC needs one premier team to step up and represent, writes Ron Morris, if the conference is ever going to "gain footing among the nation's elite."
*And before you get too excited, one good game between Florida State and Miami doesn't mean that either one of those programs is back to championship level.
*The ACC is balanced, writes John Feinstein, but that just means it's still a basketball league.
*FSU's defense showed a new wrinkle last night against Miami, and it's called the prowler. It worked -- sometimes.
*There's been a change to Virginia Tech's depth chart, and Ryan Williams made it. He took himself off of punt returns.
*Not only did Duke lose to Richmond, but Virginia lost to William & Mary. The Blue Devils will need a better effort from here on out.
*It didn't help Wake Forest that their winningest quarterback in school history was mediocre at best.
*Georgia Tech A-back Roddy Jones will return from a dislocated wrist in time for Thursday night's Clemson game.
*For some, the jury is still out on UNC's offense. Its defense, however, was worth talking about.
*Maryland doesn't have much choice but to rebound quickly from its loss to Cal -- the worst opening loss for the program since 1892.
*Boston College just might be a contender after all, especially considering how bad the rest of the ACC looked in Week 1.
