Pithy Comments

- By now I've probably angered Brian and Jeff who can't believe I'd have BC at 0-3 in ACC play. Well, guys, it's going to get worse before it gets better.
- Miami gets a signature win for the ACC over Oklahoma. Sam Bradford spends most of the day on his back.
- There's a clear distinction between the top three teams and the bottom three teams in both divisions. However, Miami is starting to come on strong in the Coastal.
