HUMP DAY LINKS

Via ESPN and T.A.H.

*For Veterans’ Day, ESPN’s Ivan Maisel wrote a piece about “memorial” college football stadiums that honor veterans. Clemson has one.
*In addition to Maisel’s tribute, the boys/girls at ESPN put together a nice photo essay as well.

*Publishing salaries -- anyone's -- always raises eyebrows and prompts a few questions. Wake Forest athletic director Ron Wellman found himself defending coach Jim Grobe's salary after the recent USA Today report.

*Clemson's players aren't the only ones who have matured this fall. Offensive coordinator Billy Napier has gotten better at his job, too.

*Florida State backup quarterback E.J. Manuel has been preparing for this moment since he was in high school, but with the Noles in a must-win situation, the pressure is on. Manuel's just trying not to think about it.

*NC State's latest recruit might give some opponents headaches in the next few years.

*Duke showed some signs of a let-down at practice following the loss to North Carolina, but coach David Cutcliffe gave them a history lesson to get them recharged.

*Mark Bradley of the AJC says Georgia Tech would finish fourth overall in the SEC.

*A lot has changed since the last time BC coach Frank Spaziani was on the sideline in Scott Stadium.

*Miami linebacker Sean Spence is expected to miss his third straight game.
The Hurricanes just lured another wide receiver to Coral Gables, and the success of this year's passing game and plentiful options at the position had something to do with it.
