THURSDAY LINKS

Via ESPN and ACC Now:

*At North Carolina, freshman basketball players aren't allowed to speak to the media until after their first game. Even if they're twins.

*For some reason, Duke’s Miles Plumlee thinks he’s the fastest 6’10” guy in the ACC.

*Georgia Tech is off to a 5-1 start, and this midseason report breaks down what's gone right and wrong for the Jackets so far.

*If Georgia Tech wins this weekend, and Miami and Virginia Tech continue to win, it could be up to the BCS standings or a draw to determine the division winners.

*Georgia Tech running back Jonathan Dwyer says the Jackets' offense still hasn't reached its peak.

*The message in Chestnut Hill this week? "Let's get the Wolfpack."

*Clemson hasn't scored a touchdown in the fourth quarter since last year. That's significant considering the Tigers have held fourth-quarter leads in two of their three losses.

*Despite their rough start in the first half of the season, the Terps are taking a positive approach. Maryland has several problems on defense, but the one that's got defensive coordinator Don Brown agitated is his opponents' third-down conversions.

*Jacory Harris has thrown as many touchdowns as he has interceptions in the past three weeks, which is why he wasn't on my top five list this week. (That list was based on recent performances, and was a spin off of last weekend's high scoring games, not a midseason report.) But Harris has a reason for his errors.

*Bobby Bowden isn't backing away from his comment that he's strongly leaning toward coming back next year.
