ACC Football Links

From ESPN's ACC blog:

*The NFL's labor strife could pay dividends for Clemson coach Dabo Swinney.
*The NCAA will hear the appeals of two UNC players this week, starting today.
*Can Virginia ever catch Virginia Tech in football? One longtime columnist weighs in.
*Kirby Hocutt's future at Miami will be based on Al Golden's success.
*Hocutt was won over by Golden's attention to detail.
*Golden delivered the right message on Monday night, but only time will tell if he can deliver the results.
*Sales for NC State's bowl game are going well.
*FSU beat Florida on the field this year and in recruiting.
*Virginia Tech's tailbacks will file their paperwork with the NFL to see where they might stand in the NFL draft.
*Is Tyrod Taylor an NFL quarterback?
*It's just not clear if Golden is the right fit yet. Agreed.Truth is, a hire like this shows just how far Miami has fallen.
*Look at it this way: Golden has more head-coaching experience than Florida's Will Muschamp. Some consider that to be a risky hire.
*That means Golden is off Pitt's list. But fear not, Hokies, according to that report Bud Foster isn't on it, either.Golden has developed NFL talent. He should have plenty of that to work with at Miami. Should.
*In other news, Maryland coach Ralph Friedgen said the bowl process "disrespected" his school.
*NC State coach Tom O'Brien didn't sound optimistic about his quarterback returning for his senior season.Sorry, FSU fans, but Jimbo Fisher actually likes Steve Spurrier.
*Clemson needs its bowl practices to start developing younger players.
*If you don't have a whole new respect for Randy Shannon after reading this, tsk tsk.
*FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said he was caught off-guard by Urban Meyer's resignation.
